There’s so much more to life…..

  My sister friend sent me this post and the words are so precious to me. “Become a whole being on your own” – We often wait for someone to fill us and complete us; someone we lost, someone we love or someone we hope to love some day and we don’t spend enough time focusing on ourselves and filling ourselves up with the things that matter to us.

The classic case of wanting the impossible, personal suffering and sacrifice…

We are often on the pursuit of happiness but we rarely…

10 THINGS I LEARNT FROM FAILING AT MY DREAM

    Hi my name is Nwando and I’m a dreamer. I’ve always been a dreamer. From the days I was a child I was restless with the thought of being ordinary. The one thing that irks me the most is mediocrity. I romanticized everything. Everything had a greater meaning and a truer purpose. The sun never was ordinary, the moon, the stars all had purpose and depth, love was never basic. I always wanted…
