• Staying Free From Social Media Toxicity

    We all know how important it is to give our bodies a break from toxic substances. The word ‘toxic’ by itself scares us and warns us to stay away. And for the most part, we do because we love our health and we want to stay alive. So much has also been said about ‘toxic relationships and toxic friendships’ and how it’s important to identify them and avoid them for our mental health and emotional well-being. We read those articles and probably hear those TED talks and sermons but we still expose ourselves to toxicity every day. How? Through our social media feeds. The rise and popularity of social media…

  • Being Kind To Me..

    KINDNESS:  Defined as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Synonyms: goodwill, affection, warmth, gentleness, tenderness, concern, care; consideration, thoughtfulness, unselfishness, altruism, compassion, sympathy, understanding, etc Someone twitted recently and said; “be kind to yourself”.  Simple statement but it got me thinking. How do I treat me ? I recently learned that the way I treat myself , the decisions and choices I make are oftentimes a reaction from what I think about me.  How I allow others to treat me is a reflection of how I feel about me. Years of internalizing thoughts of unworthiness , insecurity and pain had damaged so much but the recovery process has been amazing.  Now I’m conscious of what I’m constantly thinking about myself. Like a…

  • Uncomfortable Thoughts About Some Bible Stories…

    Do you ever think about how we (Christians)normalized the genocide and mass murders perpetrated in the name of God? Philistines, Amalekites, Edomites, Sidonites and all those other tribes in the Old Testament that were mass murdered. (women, children and even their livestock). In so many bible accounts, entire cities were wiped out without a single living thing left alive because someone said they heard from God and those were his instructions. We read this stories, believe them and justify them because we are told those are “enemies of God”.   “When the people heard the sound of the rams’ horns, they shouted as loud as they could. Suddenly, the walls…

  • I Am Tired.

    This is not an inspirational post. it’s not meant to be. frankly speaking, i don’t even know what it’s supposed to be. I haven’t written anything here in a while and i miss that. I miss you reading and in a way, i miss me. i miss the me that writes. I haven’t been in the right head space for some time and I’ve tried to find a name or description for how I’m feeling and the one word i could come up with, is ‘tired’. I’m tired of the hustle and bustle of daily living. I’m tired of answering questions, smiling and laughing and shaking hands and having conversations…

  • Help @Chude Raise N10M to Build A Depression & Trauma Centre For Young People

    I am almost ashamed to say this now because I had no excuse. My parents were not rich, but they were not poor. They sent me to good schools. They had a marriage that was difficult sometimes, but they stayed together because of me; it was a good marriage, and they never projected pain or trauma unto me. My life has had no abuse of any sort (not even verbal abuse by my mother), and I have been loved and validated by my parents every day of my life. Yet even with all this reinforcement, when I left their protective arms and went into the world, it frightened me. There…

  • #GuestPost – Neglecting The Boy Endangers The Girl

    Before he was a rapist, woman beater, misogynist, patriarchy maniac, and the thing that keeps you awake at night, he was an innocent child. Born with no hate or disregard for women. There is no way he brought such evil from heaven. What happened? He was neglected and uneducated. Neglected by his parents, uncles, church, aunties and all the good institutions of the society responsible for nurturing him. They tell him to go find his way because he is a man. I never paid much or any attention to the international day of the girl child until last year. Women have had enough and were making a lot of justified noise on…

  • #PressForProgress – Live Your Truth. No Permission Needed.

      I didn’t grow up thinking i was female. Sounds rather odd doesn’t it? Let me explain myself better.  I was a creative child and i discovered it early enough. I knew i could sing, write, talk a mouthful and be the center of attention in any group and i did all those naturally without thinking for a second about being a girl while doing them. Then Church happened.  And life happened. I was told you’re a girl, don’t be so outspoken You’re a girl, you shouldn’t always be in front You’re a girl, don’t be so loud You’re a girl, you shouldn’t want to be the leader   Women…

  • @ShonowoHospital Announces Free Fibroid Removal Surgeries!

    In Nigeria, women who are in their child bearing ages stand higher risk of developing fibroids. Fibroids are the most frequently seen tumors of the female reproductive system. Also known as uterine myomas, leiomyomas, or fibromas, fibroids are firm, compact tumors that are made of smooth muscle cells and fibrous connective tissue that develop in the uterus. It is estimated that between 20 to 50 percent of women of reproductive age have fibroids, although not all are diagnosed. It has been estimated that 1 in 4 Nigerian women develop one or more fibroids in her lifetime.

  • Soul Detoxifying Worship

    Thinking aloud the other day, i said I needed some form of therapy.  I had been feeling stressed, dissatisfied, worried and angry. I felt like i lived in a pressure cooker and any minute, i would blow a lid at the slightest provocation. Last weekend was the last straw.  I had an expectation that ended in disappointment and i was so hurt. All previous emotions kicked in and i was so miserable. But then, the week started with Chude inviting me for a worship session for a small group of friends.  It was exactly what I needed. Just singing songs of worship, i dropped all my burdens and worries and…
