6 Things Happened When I Let God Heal My Broken Heart

When I wrote 'how to deal with heartbreak', I made a promise to write on the special effect of letting God do the healing. 

6 Things Happened When I Let God Heal My Broken Heart


The process of healing comes in three forms; it can be slow, gradual, or immediate. For me, it was gradual in a fast pace. Going through a Heartbreak was the hardest thing I've ever been through. I almost died. I still wonder how I didn't die.

Why Did God Create Cockroaches?

I can avoid telling you about this creature on a Monday, but no. It's exactly the same way I tried to sleep, but couldn't. While you were sleeping, I was wide awake. Staring at the ceiling. Scared to death. Now it's pay back time! Lol.

The Cockroaches


I spent few hours trying to decide on the title for this article when I decided to write it. I had three options;

1. I hate cockroaches!
2. Why are cockroaches so evil?!
3. Suffer not the cockroaches to live!

But then, something changed my mind. A thought about thinking on it did.

How to Deal with Heartbreak

Somehow I feel my life is an experiment. I go through it, and share my lessons and discoveries. While some are pleasant, others aren't. As usual, I write from my heart. . .

How to Deal with Heartbreak


Are you heart broken? I know what's going on in your life right now, the feeling of emptiness, pain, anger and depression. You feel that you've lost someone who you thought was the best and the most special. (like in my case, the person was magical). You are not alone.

I was in a beautiful relationship with a man I loved like I'd never loved any other. But yes, like most relationships, the end was painful.

STYLE: I Wear Miniskirts

Over the weekend, as I was reshuffling my wardrobe, I found some pieces of clothing I'd not worn for a very long period of time. One of them is a miniskirt. *covers face* This is a throwback. . . 

How to Rock a Miniskirt Modestly


We all have personal fashion tips and tricks. The uniqueness of these tips is what we call style. I have my styles. You have yours too.

Some fashionistas can comfortably wear a miniskirt in public even when they know their laps are very well exposed, while some cannot because it isn't just their style.

Is This Supposed to be a Compliment?

Hello sweeties! How are you all enjoying the holiday? I have plenty gist for you o. But let's save it till the holiday ends. So I've been thinking about this for a while now. It's no longer funny. Have you ever received a 'compliment' that got you angry, irritated, or depressed? I have!

 Giving Compliments

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary: A compliment is a remark that says something good about someone or something.

It also went further to say; it is an expression of esteem and respect, more like best wishes.

You remember the programme I told you about last Sunday. Right? Too bad you didn't attend. You missed!

This is Nothing But The Truth

Who would have thought I'd been crying behind the keyboard? Who would have thought when I said I choose to be happy, I was actually crying out in pain?

God's Light in the Dark


Sometimes the blogosphere can be so fake and misleading. (Oops! It took me a lot to say that *bites lip*) Social media paints the picture that everybody has a perfect, beautiful life and that every day is bright. Well, I'm not ashamed to tell you that life has been a struggle for me over the past few months.

Maintain Integrity in your Writing

"You will be judged by your words" kept ringing in my head just after I clicked on the 'publish' button. Well, I finally deleted it when I realized it was a sin to write such.

10 Ways to Maintain Integrity in your Writing


In a way, we are all writers.

When you post on Twitter, Facebook, G+, you write something. When you update your BBM status, reply an SMS, chat with a friend, you write something. When you leave a comment on a blog post or submit articles for publication, you write something. Right?

STORY: I Met Jerry (10)

When a man loves a woman, he tells her. When a woman loves a man, she tells the world. I had just added another personal love quote to my diary. I smiled.

Small Shakara


It dawned on me. Love is a beautiful thing but it can also be painful. You have to fight to keep it. You have to nurture it to grow. And you have to get angry to appreciate it. Yeah, I think so.

I was angry.
