Setting the Year right! — January 9, 2018

Setting the Year right!

The year is all yours Lord, Bless it up!

Hi guys, trust 2018 has been awesome? This is like the official first post for the new year and I figured we should set things right.

Even with our plans, goals, to-dos, positive vibes and the whole preparation we have for the year, we need to remember that through it all, God is set to put us through. I came to realize that If my sufficiency is from God and God is unlimited, then I have unlimited resources available to me, therefore, once I got that settled actualizing the dreams or attaining the goals is way easier for me, even when it won’t look or play out as expected, I know God got me covered and with this settled, the year can begin. Just trust God and His amazing processes, He hasn’t failed and have NO intentions to.

“While the resources in your hand are not sufficient; I am your Sufficiency.”

                                              God

Once again have an amazing, fulfilling and Prosperous 2018!

Much Love,

Christmas 2017 — December 25, 2017
Not Too Young/Old — December 23, 2017

Not Too Young/Old

I suddenly realize that I don’t have time (note; Not that I’m so old to get things done but then, I’m also not too young to have a lot done). You don’t either. There is nothing like being too young. I started writing around age 10 and now I wish I had believe in my writing and my stories and my voice earlier. I kind of wish I had gone into a relationship earlier (maybe?). I wish I had started saving earlier. I wish I had nurtured my entrepreneurship spirit earlier. I wish I had dropped some friends earlier. I wish I had been proactive about a lot of things.

Going forward, I’m not going to capture a caterpillar in a jar and keep a butterfly hostage.

I’m truly living and going for what I believe in and my dreams. No more startup excuses, No fears, No inhibitions.

Everyday looks mundane and the same and nothing changes yet when you look back, everything has changed. Truth is, sometimes, we get lost while searching for ourselves and we sometimes feel like we don’t have it together (Real life-scary feelings). You will not always have it all figured out and everything won’t always go as planned. Instead of toiling so hard, stressing about the future, while not focus on what you have at hand. That particular thing you’re skilled with today, do it right. Stop wasting so much time thinking you are saving it for the future. 

The future is now. Live like you don’t have time. Because you don’t.

Much Love,

Yes, You Can! — December 19, 2017

Yes, You Can!

Yes! You shouldn’t too. No matter how tired you are, believe you can and you will! 💪

The boldness and strength to break boundaries is one lesson I’ve learnt over the years.I’m quite optimistic and I don’t believe there is anything too hard or much for me to do. I believe I can do just whatever I put my mind to. I’ve learnt not to be myopic about things, I just pray for directions, seek advice, ask myself if that’s what I really want and give it my best shot. Success doesn’t come easily but the heart by which you do things counts a lot, the conviction of being able to do it encourages you and even when it doesn’t feel like achieving the goal is feasible I only remember the motive behind starting it anyway. This quote from one of ofili’s book caught me;

“[If you are reading this]… You’re alive! That
means you have infinite potential. You can do
anything. If you change the world, the world will
change.” – Neil Gaiman


The road won’t always be smooth, you’d sometimes worry if you actually know what you’re doing, nothing will look in place for some days, giving up will look like the only option left. Yes, Sometimes you’ll feel you’ve reached the dead end and no more cards to play up your sleeves but trust me;

“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was
over it became a butterfly.” – Anonymous

TRUST — December 14, 2017

TRUST

A happy man is the man who does not depend or have high expectations from men cos he won’t be heart broken from disappointment (strictly my quote). Well, not really a quote but I guess its what I’ve come up with over years of learning not to put my trust in men but in the never failing supreme being who love me enough to sacrifice and provide for all my needs long before I was conceived.

Yeah, I have friends and family members around me who cares, in fact my MUM is a great woman that combines the role of the father & mother (story for another day) and can do anything for me but sometimes fall under the spell of the human nature, awesome siblings that priotizes my needs, terrific friends we could stick our necks out on blade for eachother. . . But then, In the area of trust I’ve grown to depend on God, whether things are good or not, downright ugly or beautiful, I truly know that God is my source, my sole source. Whether it is financial, or emotional or health wise or my academics or my writing or my business, I’ve come to trust God true and through.
My resolution is to step back and let God take over even in the simplest things, like who’s going to give me a free ride to my destination or who’s recharging my cellphone.


I’m not testing God’s ability to, I’m testing my trust in His ability – Ayotola

​Blessed, Broken and Served — December 10, 2017

​Blessed, Broken and Served

I’m Blessed, Broken and Served! And its never a one time thing, this is my life now! 🙌

Since I discovered this secret to be an awesome multiplying factor, it has been a constant weapon of usage in my arsenal. I just yearn and crave more of these three (3) steps to keep reoccurring in my life.
– To be Blessed

– To be Broken

– To be Served

I’ve come to the realization that whenever and whatever God Bless, Break and Serve multiplies. The first time I realized this, it got dawn on me on my way home from work one evening and subconsciously, I silently prayed it out that God should Bless, Break and Serve Me! My life hasn’t been the same ever since that 2 mins short request and that’s why I can confidently share the secret. The word works.

I don’t struggle to be a blessing to people and there is always more to go around and left over for the yet to come demands. Resources stopped being the problem and I’m done worrying about what is to be because I’m sure I’ll get even much more than I can ever ask or need, plus, I have the enablement to be a blessing with excess left over! 💃

Scriptural reference;
Matthew 14:17-21, Mark 6:38-44, Luke 9:13-17, John 6:9-14, Matthew 15:34-39, Mark 8:5-10.

WRITE IT DOWN — December 6, 2017

WRITE IT DOWN

If there  is one lesson I’ve learnt over the years, it is keeping track of the happenings around me by penning them down and this has helped me gone a long way. I have the habit of reading my journal when I’m idle or less busy thereby measuring my past thoughts and actions. I discovered that Writing it down, whatever it is: reminds you, keeps you accountable, heals you and measures your growth. I’ve learnt to write that business strategy to apply, that WORD for my life from God, that gift given to me, that advice, that thing I need to do, that place I need  to go, that thing I need to buy, that habit I need to drop and steps I need to take to get over it, etc… In fact, I keep a personal 🏆 cup (I’ll explain better sometimes in the future), where I keep short notes of almost every good happenings in my life and reminisces on them when I need remembrance of God’s love in my life.

Write it down. Just write it and keep it. You will forget, I promise. 

The shortest pencil is longer than the smartest memory or so the quote goes.

Since this is my first post this month, Happy New Month! Xmas is around the corner! 🙌

Loving Me — November 29, 2017

Loving Me

Love yourself enough to rock your choices and decisions!

Sometimes you just have to let go or walk out of some things or situations and these I’ve been known to do lately and I honestly understand why my loved ones couldn’t wrap their head around it but I’ve learnt to say my ‘Yes‘ or ‘No‘ and rock it cos’ I mean it.

People will talk especially loved ones and most times some decisions are not easy to explain but I’ve learnt to respect the fact that People won’t shut up. The ones that love you the most might even be the loudest voices.

Listen to people and stuff but make sure you’re not auditioning for the okay of humans.

Much Love,

Camping — November 24, 2017

Camping


Hi guys,

Coupled with having Writers’ block for some days (most likely due to stress from preparing for camp), camp life has not been that free and relaxed enough for me to write so I’m Sorry I’ve been off for a while. Currently on camp for my National Youth Service Corps program which will last for 3 weeks but I promise to work my way around the rigorous training schedule soon. . .

And share some of the experiences here too.
Much Love,
