Spring (Cleaning): Why, What, How

Aaah, the joy of Spring…cleaning! As a recovering hoarder, only recently have I started to enjoy spring cleaning. It not only makes looking for clothes in the morning a lot easier, but also helps me think clearer and creates room for stuff I cherish as opposed to stuff that I

Timeless advice From Gary Younge

I’ve been reflecting a lot lately; on where I have been, where I am and where I am going. One of the experiences that stands bright in my memory is my Masters graduation on 19th July 2017. It was wonderful being back in a city that I called home for 4

You Are A Work Of Art

Today, going forward, make your bed work for you. Whatever hardship, whatever obstacle, whatever doubt…make it work for you. Hold on to your Faith. May it be bigger than your fear. Do not limit God. A deep sense of belief in yourself is everything, & it absolutely can be cultivated.

It’s A Mess. It’s Beautiful.

I love it when I meet someone who reads and even more, loves my blog. My heart automatically breaks into a happy dance. Occasionally, I do come across one or two who presume, directly or allusively, that I am perfect. The truth is, I mess up a lot. I do.

30 Days Of Journaling

I have kept journals consistently since I was 13, and it has added more value to my life than my years. Besides how much I enjoy reading my entries in retrospect, it is a practice that has helped me remain introspective, accountable, inspired and has encouraged me to uncover life’s

This Thing, Hope

I just read this post by Biko Zulu. I normally leave recommendations until the end, but I am too moved not to have it here. Plus it gave me inspo for this post; I think it is only dutiful. I have been thinking lately, “I don’t want to forget what

A Reminder: When it gets difficult

It’s raining. I love the rain. Out here in these smart streets, they call me a pluviophile. I am a pluviophile. A pluviophile whose life is dealing a crash course on a number of lessons. I’m ultimately really grateful. Things could be worse. That, and there is hope tied to

Quarter Life Crisis

Adulting is not easy… but you already know that. I’m at the quarter life crisis stage. From what I have read, it happens somewhere between your mid 20s and early 30s. My transition from university to being a working adult has been unsettling. Life just seems harder than it’s been; not

Thriving Past Self-Disappointment

One of the toughest situations I have had to deal with, and seek strength to get through, is disappointing myself. Ne-Yo and Cher LLoyd sang it perfectly: “it’s like falling down, and everyone’s watching.” The journey involves inevitable bumps. It just so happens that these are sometimes a result of

When Destiny Calls

I’ve been pretty swamped lately. Some of you may call it adulting. I call it my attempt at adulting. I’ve been distracted. There was a point in my life where remaining centered came as naturally as blinking. Now, a lot seems fleeting and I have lived more from the outside

Owning Your Journey

With every stage of life, comes re-learning, re-connecting and re-committing. The more I adult, the more I realize the importance of being your own person. The way you live should be an expression, uniquely yours. Owning my own journey, at this point in my roaring twenties, looks something like: Trusting

Why Nostalgia Can Be Good For You

Lately, I have been intermittently in my university memories. I really miss Cardiff. Seeing pictures of its stunning sights as I scroll through my social media timelines, gets me emotional. You could say that I get attached to experiences. For a place that I made my second home, I suppose
