Marriage is not about finding the perfect person. It's about bringing out the best in the other person; thus making them perfect for you.
No man or woman can bring you happiness. If your purpose of getting married is to be happy, you are getting it all wrong.
A good marriage beats being single anytime.
I hope these quotes speak to someone! Feel free to use them but give credit.
I cooked chicken stew and vegetable soup on Thursday, and planned to eat rice and stew with fried plantain on Friday. On my way home from work, I decided to buy plantain. I had just N1500 with me and I also wanted to buy Dano milk and indomie, so I stopped by a superstore.
The price of Dano milk had risen from N550 to N750 and indomie as we all know is now N50 from N35. I wanted 6 packs i.e. N300 both totalling N1050. I had N450 change left to buy the plantain which was N400; but I was angry, because I noticed that since the era of change, I never came back with change. I always spend all the money I take shopping. Sometimes, I'm even tempted to use my debit card. (I have stopped using POS machines so I don't clean my account with one swipe.)
In order not to feel bad since 'change starts with me', I started justifying why plantain wasn't necessary to eat with rice. "Rice is carbohydrate. Ripe plantain is carbohydrate and I'll have to fry it which is not so healthy. In Nigeria, our meals are mostly carbohydrates so I should cut down on excess carbs. No much nutrient in the plantain sef. The chicken is high in protein. Boiled egg is more nutritious."
Chai see me talking to myself because of change! Yes, boiled egg is more nutritious, but haba, is it the once in a while fried plantain that would kill me? This change eh...

Did I just hear, "I'm goan shine when I'm goan shine..."? My response to you is, "You only goan shine when you seize the opportunity to shine, unless you are a changeover light bulb." (That bulb connected to the changeover and comes on when PHCN gives power, for you to know when to turn off your generator. Hehehe…)
You say you don’t want to twinkle like a star or sparkle like diamond; you want to shine brighter than the blazing sun. My darling, it is very possible, but you have to work hard for it. You have to constantly prepare yourself for that opportunity. Trust me, you don’t want to be caught unprepared, because you will regret it for the rest of your life, and trust me again, you don't want to 'if I had known'.
You know your present situation and where you want to be. You know who you are now and who you want to be. You know what you have now and what you would like to have.
Your homework is to draw a road map linking your present to your future. Only those who 'travel the road' will meet the opportunities that would bring out their shine.
If you decide to sit back, fold your arms and sing, "I'm goan shine when I'm goan shine..." My darling, you will not shine.
My quote of the week: Portray what you want the world to see, the world cannot read your mind.

Jeez! The last time I published was on the 21st of September 2014, and a whole lot has happened since then. One of them was work, work, work, work, work, work...
My department was given additional job duties which I found overwhelming. (overwhelming in a singsongy...) I got home fagged and unable to think straight, let alone type anything. My laptop seemed like a burden and typing seemed like a chore. (I prefer typing using my laptop to my phone. Although that's gonna change from now on.) I told myself, 'this too shall pass' and gave my body time to readjust to the new workload.
Unfortunately for poor me, as I was readjusting, (which actually took an unnecessary long time), another change hit me. I was temporarily reassigned to another location which had way more work load than the previous, and it was farther from home. The road...OMG was more than terrible! Calling it a bumpy ride to work is an understatement. I was also one man down at the new location for some weeks which was killing. During that period writing didn’t appeal to me in any way. I just wanted that phase of my life to be over.
However, I realised that there is never a perfect time. Something must always come up to distract you. It’s just the way the world works. That is why there is a word called FOCUS. I actually lost focus. I had no excuse to stop writing. Like my bestie said, I was just plain lazy. I am even busier now but I am more focused. The clock will not stop ticking for my sake, neither will traffic stop moving. I have to just make it work, which is what I have decided to do from now on. No going back!
So my darlings, I am back with a bang! (I just wanted to say that, love the sound of it.) Anyway darlings, until my next post, stay focused!

The sad and annoying thing is many ladies do this. They date guys they don’t truly love and chicken out when he proposes or actually act like a chicken and enter into a marriage they regret after a few years. It is one of the reasons why many marriages fail. Now I am asking the ladies, “Why remain with a guy if he isn’t the man you desire?” Is it
For the Money? If you don’t love him, don’t love his money; and if he is not your kind of guy, don’t spend his money. It is unfair to deceive a guy and pretend you love him because your eyes are on his cash or his bank account, and then break his heart in the end. Ladies with big mouths, awoof dey run belle! Ladies with small brains, money is not love so don’t be deceived by it. Some ladies have met trouble because of their long throats. For the guys who spend to impress or feel money can buy love, OYO is your case!
For security? There is this aura of pride ladies exude when they say they have a man. Let me say that not being in a relationship doesn’t make you a less of a woman. If you are destined to be married, you will be. You don’t need to cling to a man because you feel uncomfortable telling people that you are not in a relationship. It is a warped mentality to look down on a lady because she has no man in her life. It takes a moment to meet a good man and it does not take eternity to get married to him if he is the one.
For convenience? Some ladies don’t entertain the idea of struggling with a guy. They want a man who has a good job, a car, an apartment, etc. in summary, a ready-made man. They want someone that would make their lives easier. When they find a ready-made man, they feel like they have won a lottery. They attach to him and convince themselves that they love or will love him even if they do not and may never. They do all they can to settle down with him because to them, he is gold; but realize later that there is still something missing. It is not a sin if he is still searching for a job or living with his parents. That ready-made man was not born ready-made.
Just for companionship? Some ladies love company. They hate being alone. If they have to be home alone, they call their friends or go over to a friend’s. They are the kind of ladies who send wrong signals to a guy who really wants them. They hang out him like a girlfriend would and this brother would think he has got himself a woman. But when he pops the question to make it official, they realise the commitment is way too much. They only wanted company and they use excuses like you are more like a brother to me after spending his cash and chasing away potential wife materials.
Because of pressure? I actually feel for these ladies because it is stressful when you live with a family who constantly drum it into your ears that you need to bring a man home and make it seem like it is your fault you have no man. Those who are not strong enough to stand their grounds give in and date any Tom that asks them out or any Harry their families hook them up with. The sad thing is even if they don’t feel fulfilled in the relationship; they just stay in it to avoid the pressure. Please do not be with a man due to pressure from anyone because none of those you are trying to please will stay in the relationship or marriage with you.
Because you are desperate? Desperation makes one do crazy things such as dating a man that is totally not your type. When some ladies hear the sound of their clock ticking towards 30, they become frantic and begin to look for guys like hawks looking for chicks. Any man becomes their choice as long as he is financially capable. They tell themselves marriage is not all about love and claim that as long as he can take care for you, everything will work out fine. Pure crap if you ask me! A fresh graduate is usually desperate for a job and is willing to take any that comes his way but after getting his first job, he starts looking for another option because he is not satisfied. Marriage is not like a job that you can change when you are not satisfied, so you cannot be desperate.
Because you feel stuck? This is for ladies who are in relationships that are not working and they know it. They know they need to leave but lack the willpower. Some count the years they have invested in the relationship, some think of the stress of starting the dating process over again, while for some, he is their first and they want him to be their last. It can be tough breaking up with someone you love, but not every relationship must end in marriage especially when you can see the writing on the wall. It is not easy but you can do it. It will hurt but with time the pains will ease off. A broken relationship is better than a broken marriage…and this cliché still holds water.
Now ladies I need you to think this over, whether you are in a relationship or about to enter into one. Ask yourself,
Be uniquely different, be you.
