August life updates ||Taking Stock #4


Wow people, August has finished finally. What a relief! *sighs*
This particular month felt so slow to me —exceptionally slow. Compared to the past months. I honestly think it's because I'm hitching to complete my one year mandatory youth service to my country, I talked about it on my last taking stock post here on the blog. I feel like I'm being caged up in one position and everything has been on a vicious circle for almost a year now. I'm just tired of the repetition lifestyle. Anyway enough of my ranting. How was the month of August for you? I hope this month ended well for you as I love you so much to wish you bad.

When I was in high school, I wanted to make friends with the bubbling girls on campus but it never possible because I was different. Not just that, but I was unique in my own ways.

DEAR SOCIETY, THERE IS NO LATE COMER IN LIFE




You have to know that God handed to everyone his/her purpose in life and however we choose to achieve our dreams and purposes in life is not yours to determine. For we walk the sands of time through different paths.

Dear society, 

It is not normal that as women, we live our lives in constant fear of what the society will think of us if we deviate from the cultures, norms and traditions of our society.

The students of the community secondary school, Akparabong, Ikom, Cross River State. 
Indecent dressing is a common problem in the society today especially by the youths.
To be indecently dressed means to deliberately expose ones body to the public, either to attract or not to attract attentions).
This attitude is not accommodated by the cultures and traditions of our society, specifically the Nigerian society and also in Africa.

Outfit Post ||5 quick & easy tips for wearing a gray singlet




 Gray  and black colors never fail any day  or any time. That's why I believe that  owning a gray singlet is a wardrobe staple  both during the sunny season or cold  season. A singlet doesn't just have to  be seen as  an indoor wear, you can use it  to add flare to your outfit whether  coperate or laid back casual.

I WANT TO BE RICH IN MY TWENTIES





Hey lovelies! I am here again, thank God for life. Hope you're doing excellently well? Yeah? OK, good.
Thank being said, I want to share something fantastic with you all.hopefully you can relate it to your lives and use it.
Let's dig in.
As a little girl growing up, I always dreamt of being rich in my twenties. You know the whole idea of having a house(home) of my own, a business empire, a job I'm happy at, a hubby, children and of course much money to keep my family and help humanities who are in need.
With regards to this, one of my short/long term goals in life is to be financially stable. I know it's not a day job but I am grinding hard(at least I try harder everyday). The feeling of sinking in financial insufficiency is a stigma - I hate it.
To be in debt because of that is even the worst stigma ever - I thank God debt and I repel each other.  It's taken me some discipline from being stingy to myself, prioritizing my needs, to investing and lots more. Want to find out? Yeah? Ok, read on.
 so I...

OFFICE ROMANCE|| WHEN A COWORKER HITS ON YOU

You know that moment when you arrive at your new office and almost all the single men want to fill you in on the dos and don'ts of the organization, 'the power players' in the office, the so called 'bad boys'(women hunters) who get weirdly excited at the glimpse of anything in skirt.

It has been three months into my National Youth Service Corp which means that I am through with the first quarter of the NYSC program.  I must say it's been fun, interesting and at the same time challenging.

According to the National Youth Service Corp ,the main objective of the scheme is inculcate values and morals, discipline into Nigerians therefore integrating them and fostering unity  among Nigerian youths. The NYSC program was founded by Decree No. 24 of May 22nd 1973.
If you are a Nigerian studying abroad or you are here in Nigeria studying or must have completed your study and awaiting your mobilization into the NYSC, please stick around to the end of this post because you will learn something. And to you who is either a working class or one thing or the other please share this post to every Nigerian graduate and Undergraduate you know.

Is self-love sufficient?

Is self-love sufficient? 

Hello friends how are you doing? Oh! I know the answer --You are fine. Why? Because you are alive today. 
Hmm! Noticed my first word? It's so nice that I think of my blog readers as friends because I believe that we are in some kind of way. At least through this little space of mine. OK enough of the chit chat lol, let's get to why you are here. 
Often times I have come across the hashtag self-love on different social media platforms and very few times I have used it to either caption my pictures or as a hashtag for my post on various social media platforms because I bought the idea -- SELF-LOVE. 
Even with the vast use of the "Self-Love" slogan, some human beings  still find it difficult to accept the idea of loving oneself. 
Even from the Biblical perspective, the word of God tell us that we should love our neighbors as ourselves ( Luke 6:31-33,Mark 12:31). 
The questions are: What if you don't even love yourself in the first place? 
How can you show love to another human being? 
Oh Wait! Do you even think that self-love is sufficient? 
Even though as human beings we are not perfect, but we are loved with our imperfections by a perfect God. ( Deuteronomy 32:4).
My point -- Yes self-love is sufficient because it could be what can get you out of that low self-esteem, self-doubt, self-loathing.
I have heard a lot of misconceptions  about "Self-love", misconceptions like:
Self-Love is self pity 
Self-Love is selfishness 
Self-Love is wallowing in denial 
Self-Love can lead to self-destruction. 
Personally, yes self-love is sufficient.
