TREASURE — September 17, 2015

TREASURE

image

     I stumbled on a poem I wrote for my mum 2 years ago and I’m gonna dedicate it to all great mums out there (dead or alive). . .
You’re our treasure, mentor and goddess. . .
We love you. . .

image

You are my backbone, my treasure;
You are such a rare gem, my treasure;
The pearl I’m lucky to have, my treasure;

image

Sometimes I wonder what could have become of me,
If I ain’t blessed to have a wonderful mum like you,
You lighten my path with your smiles and taught me the ways of the Lord,
You are the compass that guides me along my direction,
And you taught me the right things to do and how to do it. . . Continue reading

21 LESSONS @ 21 II

Lesson 12 :- DON’T LET THE PRESSURE GET TO YOU

Honestly, you just have to learn to be in control of situation because trust me the demands are not going to let
up. People’s voices are never going to drown at your insistence.

The pressure will come and you’ll feel the realness. It will
come from all facets of your life. You’ll feel it in your life spiritually, academically, emotionally, financially, socially, morally, mentally, psychologically, and the toughest in your relationships.
You’ll be torn in between making decisions and setting priorities right which is never done easily if you have so many people looking up to you or high expectations from yourself.
Sometimes it feels like the weight of the world rest on my little shoulder and I’ll wish I have a fairy Godmother like Julia Roberts or probably a more fierce one that can fight like maleficent. If you’re not in a relationship there’s pressure all around you and people start to link you up but if you’re in a relationship too my dear there are pressures too. So just face it, there will always be pressure in almost everything you do.

I’ve learnt to feel the pressure, process it and let it go if nothing good comes out of it.

Amazing Twin Dream — February 6, 2015

Amazing Twin Dream

image

     This evening I feel I should share with my awesome readers a personal wish and some interesting gists about some of the celebrities we love but don’t know have a twin. Have fun relaxing yourself with this awesome piece.

     My love for twins can’t be estimated, I almost got obsessed with mere thoughts of having a set of twin children. I love how cute they are when small and the pleasure they give to the eyes when old. I even sometimes pray I have a set too.

image

    Sometimes you have them as fraternal or identical twins. They can be girl-girl, boy-boy or boy-girl. I personally prefer the boy-boy or boy-girl infact I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve scribbled down names I’ll give my twins both feminine & masculine names *giggles*.
     I took some time off to check on some celebrities that are twins that some of us don’t even know of and I think I should share these few.

image

     French actress and Bond girl Eva Green was born
two minutes earlier than her fraternal twin sister,
Joy. Eva has said in interviews that she and her
twin “are very contrasting characters,” which
explains things pretty well — Joy studied business
and is married to an Italian count. She lives in
Normandy, France, where she rears horses.

      Fashion designer Charlotte Ronson and DJ
Samantha aren’t just sisters — they’re fraternal
twins. Samantha often provides the playlists for
Charlotte’s runway shows and spins at her
afterparties. They also share another artistic sibling
in musician Mark Ronson.

    You’ll definitely have to do a double-take to tell
Shawn Ashmore and his brother Aaron apart! The
boys are both actors and have worked both
together and separately — they each starred on
Smallville, and Shawn has gained fame for his role
as Iceman in the X-Men film series.

image

     And I was surprised to know that Vin Diesel has a double too! The chiseled
Fast & Furious 6 star has a fraternal twin brother
named Paul, who reportedly works as a film editor.

image

     Nicholas Brendon may be best known for his role
as Xander Harris in Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, but
few people are aware that his identical twin
brother, Kelly Donovan, acted as a stand-in for
many of his scenes on the show.

image

     Jon Heder, the actor best known as Napoleon
Dynamite, has an identical twin brother named
Dan. In an interview on the Late Show With David
Letterman in 2009, Jon said that as children he
and his twin “caused a lot trouble by pretending to
be the other.” They’re now partners in a
production company.

image

     Scarlett Johansson ‘s twin brother, Hunter, was
born three minutes after her and often
accompanies her to industry events. Both Johansson twins have an
interest in politics — Scarlett is a noted supporter
of Barack Obama, and Hunter served as a
campaign adviser for the president in 2008.

     The most fascinating things about the twin children to me is knowing that they both shared the same womb at a time,some even share the umbilical cord,born at same time though might be minutes apart. They grow up most of the time sharing a lot of things in common though there are many exceptions where they grow to have passion for different separate things but they still remain Omo meji. My heart reaches out to them always whenever I see one and my honest shout out goes out to all twins out there and their parents. . .
     Have a great weekend ! !
#God Bless You!
