Be A Part Of A Movement-1000Speak

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. ~Henry Ford


1000 Voices coming together, as 1 voice to speak for compassion! February 20th, 1,000 bloggers (if not more at the rate at which it’s growing) will be flooding the blogosphere with their take on Compassion. Started by Yvonne Spence and Lizzi Rogers!

I’m Nigerian and almost everyday I ask God please I don’t want to turn on the news and hear that there was another boko haram attack. I’ve never done anything about it except the occasional tweeting of #bringbackourgirls. I’m helpless… I feel helpless… there’s nothing I can do to ease the pain of the ones who have lost their homes and their loved ones…but now there’s something I can do… I can write and maybe somewhere, someday those directly affected will know that someone out there cries with them too…

So February 20th, I will join the 1,000 Voices and speak for compassion for my country.

On Disappointment, Hope and Belief

Dealing-with-Failure-theDesignBender

Some few hours into 2015, I was reflecting… grateful to God for life. It’s been a hellava journey- 2014 I mean- and it almost seemed like nothing changed in my life… except for my marital status.

I read people’s status on several social media platforms- they were sharing about how 2014 had been so good to them and it almost made me depressed. I didn’t seem to have plenty good stories to share.

Don’t get me wrong- I’m not ungrateful- I’m indeed thankful that I am alive and well. It’s just that, in the past with each new year that I was going to enter into, I excitedly entered into that year with expectation- that that year would be my year of breakthrough- especially in my career and financially, the year that my business will do well, the year that I can achieve my my most important goal- to finally afford to be with my son and have him come live with me permanently, the year that I will look back and I would see how deliriously happy I was…2014 has come and gone and I look back and I’m sad. I haven’t achieved much especially my most important goal hasn’t been fulfilled yet…

Regardless and again with conviction and belief and so much hope in my heart, I take my pen and paper, sit down and set goals, measurable goals and now I look forward to 2015 and say again despite my failures in 2014- THIS YEAR 2015, IS GOING TO BE MY BEST YEAR EVER!
