It is never too late for action…

It is never too late… In fact it is better late than never.  What is that thing you ve wanted to do , but have somehow procrastinated on till you now feel it is undoable? Get a move on… Take one step and start… Or you ve started and somehow got discouraged along the line……

Lessons from Arsenal FC…

I am an Arsenal FC fan… I love the club. It started as a sentimental love , but over time grew to a strong loyalty to the team and even the manager… I may not follow other teams or even the different leagues , but subconsciously… I ll always be a Gunner. Arsenal teaches me…

On being late and on time…

Yesterday’s post is coming late… Thankfully, it gives a good intro for what I d like to share… Time and being late… Lateness is a human attribute… I ve been late a number of times… Lateness when looked at from the human sphere is wrong and bad… It is human to tell a student who…

Ask a different question…

“I’m 32. I ought to be married by now and even have had kids. To make it worse I’m as single as number 1. Why?”  “I’m 25. I should have graduated by now if not for JAMB, post-UME and ASUU strike. Why?”  “I’m 29. Why don’t I have a job yet? I graduated several years…

The Sun always shines again…

Wow! Beautiful day, and the sun is shining already. Going to be a very short charge today…. Listen again dear friend, no matter how long the storm rages, the sun will still always shine again… Regardless of the heavy veil shielding your view of the sun , the sun’s healing warmth will still shine again. …

Of times and seasons…

Reasons to smile…

Today , I’m in a bit of a rush …  I want to share these photos from yesterday and tell you a bit about why we smile. See my beautiful friend and I? We are not the richest or most beautiful people around… We’ ve got our own fair share of daily challenges that we…

Gratitude not Comparisons.

I look at this photo today and chuckle… Scene was Kaduna at the Sports Complex of the Muritala Mohammed Square. See the lovely lady smiling with me for the camera? She is Abigail, a classmate of mine from when I completed my undergraduate studies in the University of Nigeria, Enugu as a transfer student. My…

Rebuilding Nigeria…

As I stood at the bus stop that sunny Friday, there were no thoughts of #FindingHope on my mind.  The conversation earlier about Nigeria had thrown me into a blank mood. All I just wanted to do was get back to work … As is usual for Friday afternoons, the cabs and buses had increased…

#FindingHope

It is 28 days to the new year and there is a whole lot to be grateful for this year… With lots of beautiful things to hope for in the new year … I want to write about one experience the other day that buoyed hope in me , but I m already feeling sleepy…

When Yoghurt refreshes the soul…

A few days back, I almost lost hope in the Nigerian project. I was sorely in need of a #FindingHope session. Scene was a very heated debate that had only me on one side… A very respectable elder and 2 other young men were on the other side. The argument had started from little contributions…
