Time To Go...




It's not time to go. I've been blessed with a good blog and even better blog readers, and shutting it down crossed my mind for the upteenth time but I suddenly felt intensely sad and that's how I know it's not yet time to go. 

But I admit that I'm not holding my end of the bargain and I feel terribly guilty about this. At the moment so much is going on in my life and it makes it hard for me to stay focused on blogging, or to even get on the Internet and know what's going on. 

I recently moved back to the Mainland (probably temporarily) to run a family business and this is taking all my time. It's bigger than me, there's sooooooo much riding on it and it's a 7 day a week project, for now at least. 

So this, among other things, makes it really hard to find time for anything else at the moment. The only things I find I can focus on are my relationship with God (because I need Him now more than I ever have), the business, and my nearest. 

That said, since I'm not ready to delete Thelma Thinks from the blogosphere yet, neither am I ready to lose those of you I have left, I'd ask that those of you who can, become contributors to the blog. 

There's so much happening these days, 2017 is turning out to be a very frenetic year so you see, you have material! LOL. 

Send me a mail and let's get posting. 

I'm still here. I'm not shirking my blogging responsibilities, there's just be a shift in priorities and demands.

  1. Glad to have you back Thelma....

    In the worst case scenario, I reason leaving the blog as it is would do most good. Reading through old posts brings a feeling of nostalgia to me....and I want to believe many other blog readers can relate to this feeling.

    Blog readers let's save Thelma's blog. I could write an article every fortnight only on the condition that at least six (or preferably, thirteen) other blog readers are willing to also write an article. This way, on the minimum, we'd have at least one article every two days. Sunshine, Kabuoy, J, F, Chinenyenwa, Kon, Ruby Diamond, Mallama, Quirky Moi, Maybel S, cindy brown, FNLP, the Lady, Frankly speaking, Memphis, Uyi, Kene Francis, a girl, pynk, clare henshaw, sasha bone, Eziuche O, Bluebubble, Favourite, alfarsi, Momoh Adeola, taurusianfeminist, TNHW, Joy Oke, FNLP, Lauretta Andra, Habibi and of course our many anonymouses. We've gotten so much from the blog....the least we should do is keep it running.

    Let's do this ladies and guys! Chrisyinks.

    PS: Apologies if I didn't mention your name. Apparently, my memory isn't as good as I want it to be.

    4. @ Maybel S

      Thanks.

      @ Habibi

      I kinda saved the best for the last, hence why your name came last. Per not mentioning ccc, maybe I did that on purpose so that I would have to extend my offer to her specially. I believe I just did.

      @ Kabuoy

      I see the shade ohh. Errrm Kabuoy, you may think yourself as not being a writer, but you do well recounting your fun experiences and shading me....perhaps I should give you enough reasons to shade me and you could make a blog post out of it. Chrisyinks

  2. Why putting so much pressure on yourself?

    1) Nothing lasts forever.
    2) Always do what you gotta do
    3) Do things for yourself first, before considering the feelings/expectations of others.
    4) People might vex. But they will understand. And they will move on.

    Peace.

  3. Hi Thelma,

    1. Do what makes you happy. (we all love the blog and hope it stays forever, but please do you).

    2. Nothing is bigger than you. Never confess that. The business will be an even a bigger business because you are involved.

    Cheers

  5. I would have love to write, but unfortunately I am not good at writing. I would have love to have a corner like "Chronicles of a TTCing Lady" and " My Day Today". But simple sentence I cannot construct correctly not to talk about a whole page. Ciao!

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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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!
