Don’t settle

There is beauty in the things that we have, especially when we choose not to settle. Settling for something lower than our worth. It happens in most areas of our lives but what is important is how we approach it. For example, we can see that there are few toxic people in our lives, cutting them off should be easy but…

Acceptance

Not always easy, especially from the direction we seek. Whether it be from others or family or even ourselves. The hardest one is usually from ourselves. Exposing all the ugliness, the part of us that is still sore. The hurts that have taken far too long to heal. And yet, we don’t love ourselves. We don’t love our history, the…

What’s marvellous to me?

Marvellous, not always something we use to describe things. We probably use the words, good, great, amazing. But not really marvellous. Maybe because it’s old-fashioned, I’m not too sure.

Firstly, it takes great strength to zoom into our flaws and compliment one another. Especially as we are scared of what others may think of us, or if it…

Being a father

I stepped into ShopRite in Jabi Lake Mall, Abuja (the Federal Capital of Nigeria) with a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers.
