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.

Quick Life Update : The Abusive Relationship I Am In

I trusted him completely but he broke my heart and still is in the business of breaking it. His promise to always be with me Everywhere I Go was alas a lie. He said that only to catch my attention and make me his. He gave me mouth-watering packages that offered me less for more but it turned out to be a façade. I'm tired and frustrated. I can't carry out my normal routine with all he's been doing. I trusted him just this once and he disappointed me. I never should have promoted him from the zone I placed him in initially. I remember all the times I heard people complain about theirs and I was always relieved I wasn't in their shoes but guess where I am now? I guess that's what life does. Sit in a corner and laugh at you. Nice job. He looks so attractive on the outside but deep down, there's nothing exciting about  him. A big fat façade. I miss the things I could have been doing if I hadn't made the mistake of trusting him too much. His favourite colour is

Wedding Day Thrills : 6 Things I Look Forward to & 3 That I Don't!

Hey guys, I've not posted in a while. Isn't it nice how that screams consistency? Lol jokes. I promise to do better. I was watching TV the other day and came across this 'It's my wedding' program that showcases all the activities couples go through in prep for their wedding day. I remember being insanely attracted to all the Ovation magazines with wedding pictures when I was way younger.  I was constantly devouring the pictures and you'd think I'd grow up to become a bridal consultant or something close. Life oh Life. My mantra has always been 'I'm looking forward to my wedding day and not exactly to marriage' but who am I deceiving? Lol. I think every girl has their wedding fantasy kept somewhere close for easy editing and all so I thought to share some of the reasons I'm looking forward to getting wedded. •  Pre-wedding shoot : Some years back, this wouldn't have been on the list but with all these beautiful and also hilariou

For Times When You Go From 100-0 And You Can't Explain It.

This post title is quite a mouthful simply because I couldn't find something else to describe how I felt the day I wrote this. I've been in this situation more times than I can remember. It's always exhausting and annoying. I'll be gay, exuberant and then SNAP! I'm feeling down, irritated at nothing in particular and the rest of the day becomes gloomy. No, it ain't mood swing . Or is it? The most annoying thing about this predicament is when people start asking what's wrong and I can't come up with something genuine. The occurrence that prompted this post was the most 'interesting' one ever. Here's the detail. I was having an almost perfect day doing few things online that required me to write a little something about myself. I included "I'm a PhlegMel(Yes, I believe in temperaments)" after 're-looking' up the words in the dictionary to make sure they suited me. As I was to discover later that day, that was a wro
