Why You Should Stop Waiting For The Right Time

“The Sun will rise and set regardless. What we choose to do with the light while it’s here is up to us. Journey wisely.” – Alexandra Elle I’d like to start by stating I admire Alexandra Elle. I find her very transparent. It’s much easier to be a fake version of self than a transparent version. Speaking of transparency, I have a question for you; what is that one thing you want to do with…

HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE YOURSELF?

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love & affection.” ~Buddha I have 2 questions on self love I have always been drawn to. 1. If someone asked you how much you love yourself on a scale of 1-10, what would your answer be? 2. If someone asked you to make a list of the everything you love, how long will it take for you to mention yourself? Naturally, people…

WHAT DO YOU CONSTANTLY SURROUND YOURSELF WITH?

I heard a story recently about a man that found an eagle’s egg, he picks it up and puts it in his chicken hen. The eagle hatched with the chicks and grew up around them. He did what they did, ate what they ate, clucking around poking in the dirt for worms, flying a few feet just like chickens do. One day he glanced up and saw an eagle gliding and soaring majestically and he…

I Hope You Have A Happy Weekend

What are your plans to make this a happy weekend? It’s a very cloudy and rainy day in Lagos as it’s been all week. I did not achieve as much as I’d have liked to during the week so i attempted to get out and get some work done today regardless of the weather conditions but Lagos is officially flooded so one hour, annoying standstill traffic and several pedestrian cows (truly) later I’m back home.…

Elevator Pitch | How Well Can You Sell Yourself?

What is your elevator pitch? Can you clearly and precisely articulate what you want out of your life? We all have dreams and everyone is working towards achieving something. Sometimes we feel like our work will advance if only we had someone to finance it or give us an opportunity; if you have 2 minutes with your ‘person’, can you clearly state what you want? I’ve always considered myself to be a free spirit and…

CAN YOUR TALENT CHANGE THE WORLD?

“I believe that God has put gifts and talents and ability on the inside of every one of us. When you develop that and you believe in yourself and you believe that you’re a person of influence and a person of purpose, I believe you can rise up out of any situation.” – Joel Osteen When you take a long hard look at the featured image attached to this story what do you see? The…

MY MID-YEAR RESOLUTIONS

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other – Abraham Lincoln If you’re an avid reader of my write ups, you would know I don’t believe in a set time for resolutions. January new year resolutions more often than not end up being July’s long forgotten memory. Anyone can have the right and freedom to make resolutions on what to change or start at any time. I…

What If I Never Get Married?

‘Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important’ – Chimamanda Adichie I’m a late 20’s millennial trying to build my brand and focus on living my full life, but the most common question I get is “Nwando, When are you getting married?” as if I had it penned down in my calendar for summer 2018…

WITH LOVE FROM GHANA

“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination with reality, and instead of thinking of how things may be, see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson I’m currently in Ghana on a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of Lagos. It was a very spontaneous trip with my very spontaneous friends. We literally booked the tickets the day before we left. Recently, I’d seen some bloggers I admire take a rod trip…

ARE YOU COASTING THROUGH LIFE? 5 Tips To Nudge You Out of Complacency

“Insanity is coasting through life in a miserable existence when you have a caged lion locked inside and the key to release it.”- Morgan Freeman To coast through life means to sail through life daily; it is just going with the flow and seeing what life throws your way. I woke up one day and I realized that I had started coasting – taking what comes and not asking for much more; content with the…
