Some Type Of Way...





My weekend was simply divine. On Friday night I opted to stay home and had a blissful time in bed, reading, watching reruns of my Favourite comedy series and sipping some wine. This was after I'd messaged Sasha boné asking if she wanted to do movies and drinks and she replied my message THREE hours later saying Okay. Turned out the moment had passed and I was just fine in my little corner of the world. Much later at night a friend whom I'd made late night plans with called to say he was on his way but I was way too comfortable at home to bother with getting off the bed, so I cancelled. 

The weekend continued in a blissful haze, I eventually went out on Saturday and had one of those moments that's just so much fun, you have no idea where the time went. And that's how I was in that moment until Sunday came. 

Sunday was the climax. That special someone came into town and as though that wasn't climatic enough we found ourselves at the best birthday party everrrrrr and I found myself seated on the same table with Don Jazzy. Gasp! 

Like that wasn't enough, we got invited to this other after party that put me in the "I must make money in this life" mood. LOL. It was ethereal. That's the only word that describes it. 

Yet I woke up today, hale and hearty with the week looking very promising, BUT I found myself feeling some type of way. I scrolled through my phone looking for someone to call, someone to talk to. The only problem was I couldn't find the words to say. I didn't know just how I was feeling. I wasn't depressed, I wasn't unhappy. I'm not broke or lacking anything. I'm in good health and everything is fine, to the best of my knowledge. There's nothing in particular lacking in my life right now. Yet, I had this feeling of emptiness. I felt so indescribably empty. 

Out of ideas, I then decided to pray. I didn't ask for anything, I simply thanked God. It was a prayer of worship, thanksgiving and gratitude. And then I committed everything to God, just in case there's something untoward my spirit is sensing that I can't see with the physical eyes. 

I did feel better afterwards but I found I was still in need of some cheering up. And I had just the right medicine; Instagram! 

LOL. 

You see, I'm becoming addicted to IG, not because of the fancy pictures, the "perfect" lives or the glamour, but because it's the one stop place for the most hilarious jokes. Just follow the right handles and you would often find most of your day filled with laughter. 

With God's assurance in my mind and laughter in my spirit, my mood was suddenly lifted and I'm feeling great again. Once again, I'm ready to take on the world! Yippee!!!

I'd like to know what you do when you're feeling down. Do you wait till it blows over? Is there someone in particular you talk to? Do you ignore the feeling and just get on with life? Do you, perhaps, "ingest" something (LOL)? Does sex boost your mood? Is there something you do that gets you out of the blues? What's your "Feel Good" go to? 


Do share, I might like to try your tips too. 


I wish us all a week that might start in uncertainty but would surely end with fulfillment and praise.

  1. Most times when I'm down I just pray, get myself a good book or I decide to bake or experiment with food.

  3. Thanks for the good wishes, I wish you same and other ttb readers.
    As regards this issue, social media is the last place I want to visit because it makes me feel like everybody else's life is perfect except mine, especially on IG. What I do to get out of bad moods is to listen to inspirational messages from pastors, my favourite is Pastor Kingsley of David Christian Centre. Sometimes I pray, depending. Lastly, I might opt to see an interesting movie of my choice, with a friend or alone at cinemas.

  4. Dear Thelma,

    During the weekend. Did you get some D? After having so much fun over the weekend, some D would have helped you get things rolling on a Monday morning. What you should have done this morning is just order some D from your regular supplier.

    Peace

I hardly ever feel down, but if i do, most tyms I ignore d feeling and move on with life, and yes social media helps a lot, the hilarious jokes n videos is all I'm there for.. no time to look at pples pictures! And yes sex also brightens my mood, to b honest, it relaxes me n I tend to forget all life's issues.. ok bye!

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
