Let us begin

What and if are two very distinct words. However, when they are put together, they form a sentence that many of us wish we wouldn’t be asking ourselves at this point in life. What If I had tried….. What if I tried harder…. What if I never…

What’s the Problem? 


The problem isn’t that a person isn’t perfect enough nor that they were “corrupted” by power, fame or whatever else we all quickly point to when a person “falls”. The problem is that we love putting people on a pedestal, so much so that we can’t imagine them killing a spider. Someone once made me…

My Weight Loss Journey – The Ups and the Downs


Since childhood, I’ve always had issues with my weight. You can say I was on a yoyo situation where I’d gain weight, lose it, gain it again and so on. Arguably, when I was young it was more of “Baby fat”, but that gave me a hard time at school. For goodness sake I tried…

Reaping What You Sow Series 5 – How Bad Do You Want It?


What have you done today to work towards your goals/purpose/ambitions? What have you invested your time, money and effort in, that shall reap a reward that’s related to something you claim you desperately want (to have or to achieve)?…

Reaping What You Sow Series 4 – Something’s got to give


Hello dear reader! If you’re new to my blog, you probably won’t know that what I share stems from “Notes to Self”. I’m yet to get it right, as a matter of fact, I’m growing as we speak, encouraged by my readers’ comments, discussions and suggestions. So this is for all of us, I’m not…

Reaping What You Sow Series 3 – Renewing The Mind (Part 2)


This is a continuation from my previous post, and, hopefully, I will be able to break some things down a little bit deeper.  You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude…

Reaping What You Sow Series 3 – Renewing The Mind (Part 1)


In this series, I’ve decided to break it down into two parts, simply because there’s a lot to be covered, and unfortunately my time is very limited these days due to exams.  “You must begin to understand, therefore, that the present state of your bank account, your sales, your health, your social life, your position…

Who Are You?


There’s so much danger in not knowing who you are. And by this, I don’t mean knowing your name and having no identification on you, so people refer to you as John/Jane Doe. No, I mean, knowing who you truly are inside, what you want to achieve out of your life and what you want…

Reaping What You Sow Series 2 – Reflections


In my previous post in this series, I wrote about the concept of input and output, and I mentioned how important it is (as I’ve grown to discover) to put in the most effort where we expect the highest returns. I also mentioned how in business, the riskiest investments typically have the highest returns. Of…

Taking Charge!


Goodness knows this post has been a long time coming! Now that I’m in a much better place, I’ve decided to share my counselling journey with you all, hoping that somebody out there who may be going through something similar may know they’re not alone and find the inspiration to take charge. DISCLAIMER: this is…

Reaping What You Sow Series 1 – Introductions


NOTE: This is an ongoing series that I aim to publish on a monthly basis, as I go through each month learning new lessons and reflecting on how I’ve done so far this year. Please, feel free to leave your thoughts and input in the comments section below 🙏🏾 The concept of “reaping what you…

New Year’s Resolutions


As we come to the end of 2016, it’s wise to take the time to reflect on the year, seeing what went well (and taking note of the reasons behind the success), what didn’t go so well (and taking note of what went wrong, what can be learnt from it and how that can be…
