Folu takes 30 || How I prepared for my 30th Birthday!

It’s been surreal.  After my 29th birthday, I knew that I didn’t want my 30th to just pass like my usual fashion. I made the decision to take all my pictures about a year in advance.  Asides from all the paparazzi of amazing pictures, I knew my amazing photographer husband will do justice to it, I also thought about my life and all the things I wanted to do, all the things I didn’t want to follow me around in my 30s. So, I made a list!  I made a list of all the things I wanted to achieve before …

Seth Godin: Lessons I learnt from binge watching him speak

Where have you been all my life, Mr Seth?  I have heard the name and seen some thumbnails on Youtube with the yellow frames but never really been interested until yesterday. I clicked on one video and I literally binged watched everything Godin before I screamed “Enough”!  I love his perspective and outlook to life. Listening to him resonated with me so much, it is so refreshing to see people that stand out, go against the norm not because they just want to be rebel or be different but because of freedom and the ability to think things through. When …

What I did when I knew my marriage was over

“I Do” “In Sickness and in health” “For better for worse” “For richer for poorer” “As long as you both shall live” “I do”   These were the vows I made before God and man. They felt like just mere words at the altar because my feet hurt from the heels and I really just wanted to get it over with as I am not a big fan of getting all the attention.

Challenge Update/ My Weekend

Hello People, How are you guys doing? First of all, I would like to say a big “Thank you” for all the feedbacks i’ve gotten since starting this writing challenge. I started this challenge because I wanted to be consistent, the ideas I had in my head at the time didn’t translate to what was on my blog and I wanted that to change. I needed to be more disciplined and stopped thinking that since the blog was “Mine” I could do as I pleased. I know better now. The last 16 days have been exciting and although I have 12 posts …

Does God care about my body?

When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost. Billy Graham The first time I started paying attention to what went into my body was during my NYSC days. I noticed that I was getting bloated and just generally felt very unhealthy, I decided to cut out red meat at the time and reduce the portion of rice I ate. I cannot say that I have totally embraced the healthy life style yet but I am not opposed to it. The world is evolving and there is a …

Music & Hope

” Music can change the world because it can change people.” ~ Bono, U2~ The most significant memory I have of music playing a huge role in giving me hope was during my NYSC year in my one room in the small town of Kontagora. That period was probably the lowest point of my life and I had just started to recognise God’s love towards me and having a budding love for him too. I had a playlist of more than 100 gospel songs that were shuffled and on repeat for more than half the time. Singing along to the …

Don’t let me get too excited. How are you all enjoying the Independence holiday? ************************************************************************************************************************ I am not one to always have an opinion about our beloved country.

Life Lately: I don’t love God…

You know how they say “You don’t really know someone until you marry them?” Well we are going through our own fair share of discoveries. My husband recently stumbled on my old embarrassing videos on my youtube channel. Oh! it was such a pain for me to watch him watch them and laugh at me. I went ahead to ask him what did he learn about me from my old videos. “You look really good with your low cut” You love photography and  You love God” he said. I have just realised that I don’t love God as much as …

Commercialised Jesus!

I’ve never been comfortable when I see a price tag around events/activities that claim to be about Jesus.__First, let look at God’s word For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believe should not perish… Not whosoever can afford it. 1 Tim 2: 3 – 4 This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come …
