Earlier today, we had the monthly seminar under the umbrella of the PEIFFUND fellowship program. The topic was "Positioning yourself for the global job market", and the facilitator, Mr Kayode Abass, knew his onions so it was an amazing learning experience.

He asked us to introduce ourselves and apparently, we were not at all clear with our value proposition. So that was important feedback that I will work on with the template provided.

My name is ---, I am a ---, I do this by ---, I'm successful because ---, My goal is to ---. There was so much to learn.

Something that I know that was reiterated for me in really practical terms was that social media is an effective medium that gives results depending on your input. It was just mindblowing hearing about the opportunities that people have gotten through these platforms.

Do the work + people are important.

I ask you this... Why is online dating so hard? 
You put yourself out there, all your little bits & pieces that form the complicated mess that is your life, and the guys responding just have zero clue. Is it too much to ask that a prospective date be able to hold their own in a conversation? I'm litteraly face-palming myself right now.  Is it too much to ask that a potential date share a little of themselves in return, or ask a thoughtful question? Or hey... Is it too much to ask that a potential partner remember something that you told them five minutes ago? 
But alas... It is just one more chapter in the world of my online dating experience. Which is coming to an end, yet again, for the lack of decent prospects. 
Someday I suppose I will find my forever love, but sadly it is not today.

Once upon a time,
When we were kids,
In the world of tales and tunes,
And forgotten myths.

We were just nine,
With handful of innocence and divine.
For we lived in the castle in the air,
With happiness sprinkled everywhere.

We chased the rabbit,
Along with Alice.
And danced with beauty and the beast.
With yellow fairies along us,
We flew through an eternal bliss.

Then one fine day, reality hit.
We woke up and saw,
We were big and grey,
For childhood had gone far away.

We had broken smiles,
And sparkling eyes,
With broken verse,
And terrible lies.

The fantasy was gone,
And we were shaken awake.
The castle was in vapour,
And wonderland a ruin.

Remaining was reality,
And one dead creativity.
With some unsung songs,
And melodies to sing,
And a childhood to cling.

Have you heard of a  cat playing hide and seek...well  my Tiny did!!
.
.
I wanted to have a dog for a pet! I was not allowed to do so...so I got a cat instead...to make up for the fact that I didn't have a dog, I decided to treat her like one...
.
.
So evening walks with a " pavada naada"  tied around her neck for a leash and playing hide and seek with her...my childhood memories has tiny etched all over...even the sense of loss I have known for the first time, was when she died....pets are always special, they always live on in your memories..❤️
.
.
Tell me about your pet and what was special about them..

Glad to see the stigma surrounding self love v’s selfishness is starting to fall away with the latest generation of mothers I am living amongst. I am, however, finding it easier said than done.

When the lament of some distant bird,
Echoes through the night sky,
And the gloomy eerie air,
Caress the summer vibe.
A yellow flower blooms amidst,
The deserted graveyard of lost souls.

Behind the bright wallflowers,
Appears the silhouette of a sinister ghost.
Gliding through the melancholic cold air,
It reaches my window,
And looks at me with grim eyes,
And the green eyes meet the green eyes.

Years after my death,
My ghost still haunts me.
For I am just a pinch of living,
In a dead body walking among the afflicting.

I Am...
I am not who you
Thought I’d be
I am not what you
Want me to be
I am not a majority 
Nor a minority
I am...
I am what I am
I am what I choose 
To be
What is key
Is that I am me.

I was never one to believe in romantic love ...or even love at first sight.. and as expected it never did happen for me either..
.
.
Love for me is a warmth deep in my chest...it gives me meaning, strength and makes me a selfless human....
.
.
Love grew on me slowly but surely, with patience and understanding... today, the man I am married to is my best friend...and l know deep down that he will stand  by me even when we are fighting like mad....
.
.
Love is security, love is care , love is friendship, love is sacrifice and love is faith...and I am blessed to be loved.
.
So love earnestly and soak in it as well...
.
.
So tell  me what are your thoughts on love...hmmm?

Choices
The choices made
Can lead to love and happiness
Or pain and hate
Choices made is a part of free will
But there maybe a bill 
Kinda like a pill to swallow
With a bitter after taste 
If the choices made is not
In harmony with the majority.
Choices the free will
God given no matter 
The belief of religion
For the oldest book of
Humanity tells it so
Believe what you wish
But better if it’s based 
On facts not theory
As such will lead to misery
When facts of truth revealed
by time and research
By those who seek to find
The reason behind 
Choices made of the heart
But with one’s mind.

Have you ever entered a new situation, place or role and felt the fear actually travel through your body? ⁠
From your mind to your heart to a swirly tangle in your stomach all the way to the soles of your feet?⁠
Perhaps the feeling is familiar?⁠
Maybe it reminds you of when you were younger and you were 100% convinced there were scary monsters living under your bed?⁠
⁠
The truth is, the fear has always been inside us, not outside us.⁠
⁠
We create our own scary thoughts and frightening stories. ⁠
⁠
The good news is that means we also have the power to replace the scary thoughts with safe ones. The frightening stories can become ones wrapped in courage.⁠
⁠
You're in control of your own thoughts, feelings and actions. You get to choose which ones work best for you as you enter the unknown and the unfamiliar. ⁠
⁠
You can play the scary game or the brave one. ⁠
⁠
Your choice. Choose wisely.⁠
💜⁠

I am everything 
I am nothing
I am everywhere
I am nowhere
I am black
I am white 
I am happiness 
I am despair
In this way
I am everything
I am nothing 
I hold no disillusionment to who and what I am.
I am human
Mind Body Spirit Heart
Here to bring myself to the world
Just as you are here to bring yourself.
Break free of the chains of expectations and live instead in freedom, be weird and strange, yet most importantly of all
BE YOU
❤️❤️

Just like in art, our lives are a massive and sometimes overwhelming work in progress.

And that's just fine 💗

I was thinking about this as I was pondering entering a art competition for mental health awareness. I sat down to doodle and this is what came out. I'm not clear on how to continue with this peice, but I am excited to see where it goes.

Happy to just be 'in progress' 😘
