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!!!
PS:
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!

EM2

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!

EM3

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? lol...you 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 ;)

Covent Garden and Food shopping @ Selfridges...

It was my friend's birthday and I really had an awesome time going round London(I hope she did too!:/)...okay maybe not London exactly but Westend is part of London right...*confused look*.
anyways it was a good one, met up with a couple of friends and you know what happens when girls come together...sheesh we didn't talk men kmt I'm talking about SHOES! gorrit??? S-H-O-E-S!!!
Right where was I? yeah so we went to some shoe shops and I tried on some heavenly, adorable, mouth watering shoes...PS: I would like you to know that @ this point, I am now accepting cash and vouchers for Christmas...yeah I know it is like many moons away but hey planning is good right and I'm not going to wait for you to finish allocating money before I let you...treat this as priority *wink*.
Okay so I tried the shoes on and I promise they shoes spoke to me...like they really really loved me and it was a tearful separation but that is not the topic of this post.

Luckily or whatever you may want to call it, Liam Ghallagher opened his new shop @ Covent garden... the crowd was there...hmmm trust yours truly to join in the fun, oh well it was after asking a couple of people that we found out that the crowd in front of the shop was actually waiting for his arrival like seriously? *now rolling my eyes... had to visit my friend google to check him out when I got home:)...forgive me you great fans of his... the name sounded familiar but I just couldn't figure out where I heard it from.
Back to the crowd...they started sharing out this envelope and as a sharp naija gal...I stretched my arms too..actually scratch that, my arms suddenly grew very long lol.
I opened the envelope to see all these:



Err the square in the middle is a "Pretty Green" badge and 10% voucher code to be spent instore or online and the other cards are pictures of him taken by various people!


I almost slapped myself for hustling for pictures but the birthday girl who happens to have "commercial blood" literally running through her veins convinced me not to bin it but check ebay to see what it can fetch!Hmmmm will keep you posted!
Then it was the food tasting time at covent garden where I displayed my "skills" as a food connosieur heeheehee...hmmm did someone just say that is another word for longthroat? yeah whatever...point is I tasted the food(s) accordingly:D
that's the birthday girl wolfing down a cheese burger:D and she wanted hot dog after that major portion...I simply reminded her of the fact that it may be a minute on the lips, but it's a lifetime on the hips!




Yep...that's right, I want you to turn your computer upside down to see that pix!teeheehee.

The illusionist was there to make peops laugh as usual but seriously those people are either wizards or I'm ignorant...I choose A in this case!
We made our way to Selfridges and I'm telling you now that the best time to go foodshopping(perishable goods especially) is in the evening when they are about to close! Yeah I know; how late can I be in discovering such a goldmine or oh...what a cheapskate you are...either reaction is fine with me:D
Got to Lola's and the cup cakes(four in a box) was buy one get one free!Somebody wake me up!!!
We quickly made our way to the ice-cream joint only to find out they had closed already, I bet the sad and disappointed look on my face made the lady give me a very full tub of ice-cream, my eyes lit up like a child who just got thrown into a candy store.PS: It was free! Oh the joy!I was in ice-cream heaven!
Got back in time for the birthday gal to cut her cake:) *insert cake*




In conclusion, it was a good day!

Ninja or Fart Protector::D


It's been monkey years since I put anything up here and I promise, it's not my fault, blame life and all the mountain of things to do that never gets finished.
How have I been? Very well thank you ;) Between job-hunting and hunt jobbing, I've been living life and living it more abundantly to the best of my ability; which leads me to my gist:D
A while back, I went away for the weekend with a great friend of mine and we shared a room together, it was a good one but the gal turned me to a ninja(fart protector) heeheeheehee *inserts picture* yeah that's me..had to protect myself from the dangerous emission...babes if you're reading this, you know ?I've got nothing but love for you!
Then comes evening and the snoring started...I couldn't help recording the beautiful track my friend was trying to compose...right here:
Uggghhh couldn't put the voice note up! Can any techie person help? :D

I've decided to turn this blog to a humorous one...if there's anything I've come to realise, it is the fact that life is filled with humour regardless of how terrible the situation is, there's always something to laugh about...should I tell you about the time I walked into the wrong room in a hotel?...hmmmm okay let me think about it, looking forward to reading from y'all!
Just Look and Laugh:D

...The Man Died

25 years ago, I lost my dad to the cold hands of death...the truth is I barely remember him and his image is pretty blurry in my mind's eyes...

I remember him poking my tummy and asking me what meal was there and I remember lying down on him and loving it when his voice vibrated through his chest...
I was told I was naughty from an early age and I got the whooping from him occasionally...call it selective memory but I can't remember that...

25years on, we remember him and I can't honestly say I miss him...can I be blamed?I was barely 6 when he died so who can blame me...
My sis said I missed out 'cos I wasn't born earlier but I choose to think he missed out 'cos he left too soon...but hey...we don't choose when we exit do we?...can't blame him for leaving so soon

I really hope he is in heaven...hell will be a nasty place to have been for the past 25yrs...life goes on...R.I.P Dada!
