Starting something new always scares me. I am one of those people that like to remain in their comfort zone but I realized that’s not the way to go when you want to move forward in life.
Do you pay attention to what you listen to?
“TV, movies, games and books are much like food – for your mind and soul”
Often times, I’d hear “be careful what you listen to and watch”, “be careful what your mind feeds on”. I knew it was true that what you listen to or watch could have effect on your mind but I never took it to heart.
I have heard that watching violent movies can make you violent or listening to music about violence, drugs, music that degrade women and even those that use profanity can have a negative effect on you. Always, I’d wonder how that is even possible. You know yourself, you know you can’t be violent, you know you respect women
We sometimes make the statement “I don’t care what people say about me” and the likes but is that true? I myself have said that often and even did a post on it. There’s no doubt that saying such helps and is liberating, it actually did help me. However, the truth is we care about what people say. Let’s admit it. What we actually do is we try as much as possible to not make what people think about us matter or get to us.
Every morning on my way to work, I see how some people drive on the streets and most times I’m like, if I drive, I will just be slowing down anyhow and I might just cause an accident. Even before I reached the age of driving, I’ve always been scared of driving. It’s amazing how people could manoeuvre through tight corners
“It’s my life”
“Just do it, live in the moment”
These are statements we make that in fact are not harmful. They sometimes help you become brave when you have thoughts about what people might think of you and so on. However, some people use YOLO as an excuse to live carelessly and recklessly. They make decisions that are selfish and unwise.
Welcome y’all to 2018. For some reasons, I have a good feeling about this new year. I know, that’s how I’ve been having good feelings about previous years but this year is going to be filled with so much growth, I just know it.
First of, I want to apologize for the MIA. I can come up with excuses but I’ll spare y’all all that. This year, I plan to be more organized. Easier said than done right? Anyway,

Once upon a time, an old man spread rumours that his neighbour was a thief. As a result, the young man was arrested. Days later the young man was proven innocent. After being released, the man felt humiliated as he walked to his home. He sued the old man
“There are 3 sides to every story, your side, their side and the truth”
Often times, we are told stories, reports on how things were done or how people were treated. As we listen, we tend to believe wholly what the person speaking is saying and we tend to make judgements based on that. As a result, we act on what we’ve been told, which could be irrational or
Hello everyone. How’s your day going?
First of all, I want to thank you all for still sticking around and to my new followers, welcome, please feel at home.
So lately, I have been processing things, I have been figuring things out for myself
“Common 50 naira”
“Is it not common 15 naira pen?”
“Just to go to market you cannot go”
“Is it because I borrowed your jacket I won’t hear word”
“Just because of a book you are disturbing my life”
I’m sure all these must sound familiar. People say these things because they feel it is “just this or that” or it is “common”.
