I am back!!!

For real I am back!
I will update regularly till I feel another burnout coming!
I'm growing and getting to that age where I feel I have earned the right to say whatever the heck I want to say with no filter or diplomacy!!!
I may not exercise the full right but best believe I will say what I need to say!

Praise Report

I am so grateful to God for answered prayers!!! This may come across as flimsy to some but to me it is major.
Reason being that the workplace is where most of us spend the most productive parts of our lives week-in, week-out. Since I started working in my life, I’ve always had a thorn in my flesh at the work place.
So I paused to calculate and confirm this and found out that I’ve had a thorn in my flesh 77% of my working life to date. After the last role, it became a major prayer point. I told God I wanted to work with supportive, progressive and non-judgmental people. And He answered me. Oh yes He did!!!
It just suddenly occurred to me this morning as I went down memory lane that I don’t work with backbiters and arrogant self-praising beings.
Well that arrogant part may be a bit far-fetched but I’m still thankful.
What are you thankful for?

Dare To Be Thankful

Life sure knows how to throw some curve balls. But I've come to the conclusion that you will always have that one thing to be thankful for. Doesn't matter how deep the rut is, if you really take a bird's eyeview of the whole situation; You will realise that you were left with at least one thing to thank God for. So as you go about your business this new month, keep that in mind and always count your blessings. I end with one of my favourite quotes of all time: In the end, everything will be alright... if it isn't alright, it isn't the end!

Endless Possibilities...

Endless Possibilities...

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure…

When in doubt...PRAISE!!!

I was at the bus stop waiting for the bus to take me home and mentally calculating the outgoings in my budget while standing. Then I decide to “write the vision” so I took out a notepad and a pen right there at the bus stop and started calculating.
All I focused on was the outflow, my eyes were closed to the inflow … then I started complaining and “petitioning God” and asking silly questions like “Lord when will this outflow reduce”? “Lord when will I “balance”? “Lord do something”!
I suddenly developed amnesia … I was the same person telling God to sort me out a couple of months back, here I was with a miracle job and all I could complain about was the outflow instead of thanking the God that has enabled me to pay for the outgoings!
In my troubled state, I got on the bus and only discovered my bag was “AWOL” when I was on the platform at the station waiting to board the next train home. I became aware when I wanted to take a pen from my bag to solve the Sudoku at the back of the dailies I was reading.
I almost passed out, I went to meet the platform attendant to complain that my bag was stolen... he said and I quote “there are no thieves on this platform”… In a different scenario, I probably would have rolled my eyes but in this situation, my eyes welled up with tears and I was this close to wailing but then I remembered who and most importantly whose I am and I decided to do what I ought to have been doing in the first place, I began to praise God who is my all in all. I changed my confession and declared that my bag wasn't stolen. I asked the Holy Spirit to guard my bag till I see it (and yes I said all this after asking for forgiveness for complaining bitterly instead of praising Him).
You see it is one thing to lose a property that is insured, it is another thing to lose a property that is irreplaceable!
Then I remembered my work phone was in my bag…Oh my days!!! My ID card, the fob to get into the office building, I had just been given that morning.
Bottom line is I chose to believe the God that said He will rebuke the devourer for my sake.
I called my work phone and a lady picked it up, she said I left the bag at the bus stop! That must have been when I was busy making a mountain out of a molehill, having a jaundiced view of what God can do, forgetting to praise Him for His many miracles that I can never repay.
I’m on my way to be reunited with my beloved bag (I’ve never loved a bag the way I love it right now)!!!
Worrying and complaining never generates good result … praising Him on the other hand is a win-win!!!
Now I know that when in doubt, praise God, when in double doubt, praise Him some more … He has a way of showing up.
Lesson Learnt!!!
I got my bag back; everything was intact including the money in my wallet to the last penny. Two beautiful Caribbean ladies were the angels assigned to guard my bag.
I know some naysayers may come up with the theory of “coincidence”, here is my suggestion, try leaving your bag(ensure there’s money and important documents in there plus all your bank cards and address details) at a busy bus stop for over 30 minutes and see what happens.

Celebrating my friends NOW!!!

A while back, my friend Dets started a series, talking about her friends and what she likes about them, I felt inspired to do the same. But I never got around to doing it.
The Dana Crash happened and put it in perspective for me. People say you don't appreciate what you have till you lose it, I do not intend to lose what I have, but I will appreciate now.
I'm inspired to talk about friends that have made impacts in my life and I know they will be around for a long time in Jesus name...I'm just appreciating them as much as I can. Stay tuned.

Embarrasing Moments!!!

Truth be told, we've all had our fair share of moments where we wish the earth could open up and swallow us whole... but then, this never happens...time passes, the clock ticks and life goes on...but the memories remain, the good thing about time is it takes the sting off the story and you can actually relieve this memory and laugh at yourself...and that my peops is what I'm doing today.
Well for those of you that know me, you're not allowed to laugh at me when you see me :D if you do, I'll get my pound of flesh right back "christianly speaking" :P


I live close to an underground station and I've made friends with almost all the attendants don't ask me how, it just happened.
Anyways, on a warm sunny afternoon, I was on my way out when I saw one of the underground attendants, I hadn't seen her in ages so I greeted her warmly and was teasing her about missing in action because she was pregnant right tbh, she honestly did look pregnant :(.
Wrong! She said she wasn't pregnant that she's just been on holiday...I looked everywhere but at her face, if I was fair complexioned, I would have turned red from my root outwards. It was a cringe-worthy moment indeed.
I couldn't share this with anybody for days, I marveled at my brashness and slapped me mentally for a long time!


I was on the lift with a lady and this drunk man came to join us. He kept chatting on and on about nothing and I remember all that kept running through my mind was...LORD DON'T LET THIS GUY PUKE IN THIS LIFT!!! The other lady was quiet and unresponsive to the drunk man through out.
As I was about to exit the lift, I whispered to the woman "He is drunk" ... She replied in a whisper "I know; he is my husband"
Talk of putting my foot in it! *sigh* thankfully I got out of the lift and disappeared into thin air!


This particular story haunts me to date!
I was at an event, looking really great and graciously accepting compliments when my nose started tickling me *hay fever style*.
I tried sneezing a couple of times and when the big sneeze finally came, it came with a fart!!!
Ohhh the SHAME! I almost died! I was frozen and remained immobile for minutes.
What was going through my mind? don't wanna know!
And I'm sure I probably turned purple but hey I had to psyche myself out of it.
I told the lady sitting beside me(A known person by the way) that I would have gladly died at that point in time and guess what the silly girl said??? what happened?RME... like she didn't know!kmt
PS: TD if you're reading this, I know you were lying to probably make me feel better 'cos I saw the look AA gave you.
Oh well c'est la vie!:)

*EM=Embarrassing Moment.

So the question that begs to be asked is; have you ever been embarrassed or do you have an embarrassing story to share? If you have/do, pray share!

Will be right back ;)
