The things that crowd our minds as adults are simply amazing; they just have the capacity to really complicate things. The need to pay the bills, live up to societal expectations, create impressions in what schools we send our kids too and the lifestyle we want to create for them, etc can be overwhelming if we succumb to them. Going that route can be exhausting and so unfulfilling. Before you wonder at my ranting, let me share what I mean by sharing a few experiences with you.
Recently, I did a personal review of my relationship with friends from way back and for most of them, we’ve been largely out of touch. I have a justifiable busy schedule, but in thinking about it, I realized that at the end of the day, what matters after all is said and done is the impact we have made on the lives of people we get in touch with.
It’s interesting how overtime, things our parents used to do or believe in seem outdated and out of fashion now. Their ideas seem archaic and ‘funny’. However, you would agree with me that certain values and principles they hold so dear still remain valuable and timeless. After i had an interesting experience with someone close to my parents’ age, i decided to share it with my readers and let me know where her ideas fall in the light of my thoughts.
Hello my peeps, it’s been an exciting week for me. It sure pays to take time off regularly. I’ll be posting an article on something i read a while ago and it’s dedicated to mothers. Mothers are soft and tough, tender and strong, and as we celebrate mothers’ day, i dedicate this to all mothers and intending mothers. You’re the reason why we are here. Read on:
For the past few days, i have been in Egypt with my hubby and a few other friends and it’s been an exciting experience. As i write this, we’re on a cruise on the nile, and i look out of the window to behold the scenery of a massive body of water that serves 9 countries! I’ve been to many places and learnt so much about this country.
It’s quite interesting that my last post was titled “insanity” and now, this! It’s really coincidental, but am loving the coincidence. I’ll be touching on a few real life instances to drive home my point today. Read, and tell your friends and younger ones about it. It’s happening a lot these days, and we need to be informed so we’re armed to handle issues as they arise…..
5 days ago was my fifth wedding anniversary. Yesso! I’ve been married for 5 good years…hmmm. Really, it does feel much shorter than five years ago that i got married. I look back and am amazed at the number of milestones God has helped me attain within this period – it’s been a mixture of joys, uncertainties, challenges, dreams, hopes and aspirations….the years have been extremely eventful.
5 days ago, my son, Araoluwa, Obaloluwa clocked 1. Yeah, you got it! He’s an independence baby. So many people called, visited to wish him a happy birthday. Interestingly, he got an August visitor’s call – Prof. Pat Utomi called to also wish him a happy birthday. It was a cool event, watch out for his pictures on facebook.
Sometime ago, i wrote an article on having finished my course work and exams for my masters programme and how i was given my most dreaded lecturer as supervisor. Since then, i had been going back and forth to get a project topic approved. It has not been funny at all. Up until last week, he has rejected about 25 project topics i had taken to him and had refused to meet with me to tell me why he rejected them.
