Yaay! Let's get it started!

For some days now, I've been racking my brain on what a first blog post should look like. It's a personal blog, a freestyle thing and all that but still, I kept racking my brain.
I finally decided to just pick up my pen and write whatever comes to me.
So, looking around me, I can't find anything to inspire a write-up. I picked up a souvenir from a company and their Mission Statement reads "We commit ourselves to people over things" and as I was about to question it, I remembered a message I once listened to. I ruminated on it and there and then, I decided it was worth sharing.
I can't recollect the topic of the message but I do remember some part of it. The two major points I can remember are "You don't stumble into your future, you create it." and "Be person oriented not things oriented". Deep I must say.
I wish I still have the message but life happened so I don't. I'm just going to write down the way I interpreted it to myself and how I feel almost everyone can relate.
We all have that dream asset; cars, positions, apartments and the likes. Why not let all these chase you and not the other way round? For example, you work in a multimillionaire company and there's this position everyone 'longthroats' for including you. Why don't you put that position aside first and work on yourself. Work towards having all the requirements expected of whoever is to occupy that office. Before long, the Board of directors or whoever is in charge will notice you even before you voice out your interest.
Work on yourself, do the right things and it'll only be natural that you possess the latest car and you live in an area that houses the creme de la creme of the society.
"Only through focus can you do world-class things, no matter how capable you are "- Bill Gates
Let's endeavour not to be slaves to materials but rather be their masters. The speaker used himself as an example when he said he was just doing his own thing ; speaking, touching lives and all that when fame came after him. He said if his main objective had been just to make money, he'd have given up way too early. Of course, he wanted to make money but his love for what he was doing was greater than that of money so giving up wasn't an option.
Ugh, it's really been long I listened to the message and it would have been way better if I could quote some of the speaker's salient points. Nevertheless, I know someone reading this gets the message I'm trying to pass across.
Okay, so that's it! My first blog post. I'll like to know what you feel about the whole person and things oriented thingy. Your comment means a lot to me. Thanks. xxx.

A Literary Conversation | JANUARY

I love and enjoy reading and this year, I decided to read with more intent. Much more than the knowledge gained, the vocabulary that becomes expanded and the numerous places I travel to from reading books, I decided to actually journal about my reading activities this year and also write out lessons learnt from each book.

I read at a pace of one book a week so that should be about 4 books a month except when a book has too many pages and I have to go through it in two weeks. I actually belong to a book club but because I already had a book I wanted to start the year with, I couldn't follow the reading schedule from the onset of the month so I decided to just freestyle it for the month of January. The books I read are

1. You Have A Brain - Dr Ben Carson
2. Adored - Tilly Bagshawe
3. Small Great Things - Jodi Picoult
4. The Great Gatsby - - F. Scott Fitzgerald
To Kill A Mockingbird  - Harper Lee
    The Tumour - John Grisham



1. YOU HAVE A BRAIN

2 Months Hiatus : Where have I been?

NOWHERE

Not literally but Wow, would you guys believe that I barely even checked my blog throughout the about 2 months hiatus? I wasn't exactly that busy, maybe I was, thinking about it now but I also just don't like reading what I've posted because I don't want to go all "Omg, that's way too much information" and then probably delete a post. I've been away for so long and the hardest thing about being away for me, is coming back. Gosh, it has been so hard! I went from being busy with school work to having a break and then being busy with another school related program. During my break, I actually brought out my notepad, drafted posts, wrote down bloggable topics, searched through pinterest and every other thing. I avoided Instagram a lot because trust me, no matter how confident you think you are and how high your self esteem is, seeing that other people are posting and carrying on with the blogging process would definitely do a little something to y…

4 Cliché (Not so Cliché) Lessons From A Short Trip.

I have a love hate relationship with a lot of things and situations such as with skirts as I wrote about in this POST. I have a love hate relationship with traveling. I absolutely love to see new places, learn new things and all that but I hate the long distance that has to be traveled as a time always comes during every journey that I get claustrophobic and then there's always one or two accident scenes on the road. It's not always pretty. You'd probably think I'm talking about a 7 hours journey but No. Laugh all you want but a 3hours with almost 30 minutes journey inspired this post while I was looking out of the window at nothing in particular. I realized some lessons the journey thought me and though cliché, I thought to share it still on the blog as this act would make the lessons stick and also to reach out to someone who might need this.
