    Why it's all about effort

    Effort. That word can be hard to swallow. And I am sure you have heard it at least once in  your life from your gym instructor, your teacher, your parent, your friend or your girlfriend/boyfriend. Work hard. Dreams don't work unless you do. Put your back into it. Don't dream it, be it. Don't wish for it, work for it. Prove to me you care/you love me/you want me in your life/ All these statements are familiar to you and they all always mean the same thing; effort... so what is the big deal with this word?

    It's about time

    Time. It’s the trickiest part of being human. There’s no time to do what you want, there’s all the time to do what you hate. We act like it’s slipping away but live like we have forever. We act like there is a ticking clock and chase after the wrong things, things that cannot satisfy and yet we think we have all the time to do the things that matter; the ‘little things’. You see, we take life as a competition when really it’s really just a side by side road trip. So yeah, we chase things because we want to win and also win in the shortest time possible…

    5 keys to having inner peace (even when your entire world is on fire)

    It’s a crazy world, huh? Threat of an impending nuclear war, terrorism,racism,tribalism, corruption,murder and everything else that is like a terrible episode of your favorite political thriller. We don’t even need TV dramas anymore, it’s all on the news. But it gets worse; inner turmoil, chasing dreams, chasing happiness, chasing people, anxiety, depression, overthinking, keeping up grades, finding yourself, unrequited love, addictions, feeling left out, striving for acceptance, trying too hard to be different and so forth. It takes a toll on anyone especially the recent months’ events. And as a person you can fear for your life, for your place in society or even doubt whether or not it’s…

    Dear Single girl

    to all the single ladies There are many things that you are apparently supposed to be doing right now, right? Dating all the cute guys, travelling the world, getting degrees and building multi-million dollar companies. Oh let us not forget being constantly happy because this is the best time of your life, having your best and sexiest body(which is obviously small waist, big but tight butt, toned legs and arms and flat stomach), doing crazy things with your hair, going on road trips, bonding on a spiritual level with all your girlfriends, living in your amazingly decorated apartment and getting some body piercing. You may be feeling a little overwhelmed…

    Like a dream

      There are moments in life where you feel like you are dreaming,not in a nightmare, but legit dreaming. Things happen that leave you speechless,breathless and in awe. Or maybe that’s never happened for you? You can’t relate to the dreamy moments in life because your life has been one average ride or even worse, it has been terrible? You are not alone. The Israelite had been taken captive by Babylon and had been mistreated, persecuted and misused. Mothers and children had been separated, they had been humiliated, their king had been paraded like meat and fathers had had to watch as their families were killed. They were then placed…

    Featuring other blogs

    I would love to be featuring (or collaborating with) other bloggers who have inspirational, motivational and real content. Anyone who blogs not because they can but because they are trying pass a message of love,laughter and light. Christian bloggers are especially welcome, bloggers who blog primarily or only to and for women and those who blog for the youth. I do not mind collaborating with any other blogger as long as your content is inspiring, you do not use foul language and do not promote hate, intolerance or lack of morality. I especially would love to feature poets and poetesses who write from the heart, nothing generic. Any works of…

    10 important questions to ask yourself while you are single

    (and before you enter any relationship) There are so many people who ask me about relationships, either because of my poetry or my parents’ marriage and there are so many of my friends who are dying to be in a relationship. Anyway, a girl recently messaged me and asked me what I look for in a relationship and I wrote to her and explained. But even better, it helped me to explain what led me to the process of actually writing down what I would expect. You see, so many of us have an askew view of relationship and dating that comes from our single lives. It’s when we are…
