DROP THE NEGATIVITY

Happy New Year! Wow, how time flies. It’s 2017 already! Can you believe it?! I remember 2015 like it was yesterday! LOL. Many have New Year ‘projections’, many don’t have. Many couldn’t care less if it’s a new year or an old one. Many care a lot because they hope things turn around for them.

But whatever you are feeling or thinking, just drop the negativity in you….the negative thoughts, negative confessions, negative beliefs. However bleak life looks right now, whatever mountain of problems you got going on, whatever worries sleep out of your life, let it go. Open your mind to good things, regardless of what surrounds you, speak positively however hopeless your situation might seem, confess AGAINST the negative, don’t prop it up.
Have a positive mindset. Have positive thoughts. Have positive confessions. Have a positive attitude……work hard, drop the procrastination, drop the laziness, drop the comfort for a while, read that book, finally actually study that bible, wash that cloth, …

My heart is filled with gratitude. At the end of last year, I wasn’t in a good place. There was this heart-gnawing fear. A new phase was coming in my life and the uncertainty of the future just ate me away. My relationship with God was on a zig-zag lane and the downward lane seemed to last for longer periods than the upward. I was honestly so scared about the future. A lot of what ifs.

I'M BACK WITH LIFE HACKS !

Hello dearies!! It’s been ages! I feel like it’s been too long!!! I missed you all. Not to sound like I’m making excuses but it was basically impracticable for me to combine studies and blogging with the exams right up our sleeves. But it’s over and I have rested way more than enough and I’m back. I just hope you guys didn’t get tired of waiting for me…I’m sorry guys.

So, I want to start out by sharing major life hacks that I’ve learnt in the past few months and over the years that have proved really helpful. This is not your original life hacks you see on the net. You can keep up with them, you should already be ‘doing’ them and they improve your life and the value it exudes. In no particular order, they are


1. Study. Read. Acquire knowledge. You can’t exist properly in the world of today with an empty brain or near empty one. When you come across a word or a phrase or an idea or anything you know little or nothing about, read up on it. Google it. Read news on it. Read ‘About’ pages…

THREE TIPS FOR DEALING WITH 'STRANGERS'

Before a person became a friend, he/she was a 'stranger', then maybe an acquaintance before attaining friendship. In life, many circumstances or situations tend to take us away from family and friends that we are so used to and safe around such as NYSC, industrial training, internship, law school, medical school, competitions or even relocation.

'Emeka is that you?' I asked expecting otherwise

'Nope' answered a female voice.

 Ha! I knew no girl, so who could that be.

'Who then?' I said getting up.

'It’s dera your classmate.'

I didn’t know any dera but it would be rude bombarding her with questions with the door to her face plus I didn’t even know anyone in my class.
I opened the door but it was so dark that I couldn’t see her face.

'Ah! It’s dark already, I didn’t know that. Please come in.'

'Thank you' she said stepping in. I was beginning to think that you were dead or something worse.

'What could be worse than dead?'

'I don’t know' she shrugged.

I now remembered her. The overly outspoken girl in the class who somehow, always had her manners with her but would always interfere when not wanted. Emeka would write me down for not knowing her name. Everyone knew her because of her interference spirit. She had not interfered in my business because I had not cr…
