DIARY: The Healing Process Is A Gift Only You Can Give Yourself

Today I recognize my human nature tendencies more easily. It's not that the hurt places and dark parts of me has disappeared. I have just become a healed, whole person with which to embrace them. I even have a name for it now. 

Dear Diary
October 2017
~Wholetober~


As I reflect on my life - the way I loved and was loved before I started on my journey to wholeness, I'm amazed I got to this point in one piece (or, should I say peace?). The person I used to be seems like a very bad dream. God intervened many times to keep me from self-destruction, I'm convinced.

There is no point sugarcoating it. Healing is a process of destruction. It is messy and painful, but oh, so worth it.

The Fish Is Not The Point

Hiya! I bring us good news! The good news is that we are not alone in our frail, human state. The Bible is full of men and women who, despite their best efforts, suffer from a chronic lack of love and character. One of them is Jonah.

May you be inspired by this character I have come to find amusing too. Amen.

Sometimes We Are Jonah

Source: Bible Stories

Over the weekend, I studied the entire book of Jonah. And it brought an illumination to the truth that sometimes we are Jonah. We run, we are swallowed up, and we are spit out.

Sometimes, just like Jonah, when we have so many responsibilities thrust on our shoulders we feel that life is too much to handle. Who wouldn't want to book a cruise, get on a ship, and run away from all the wahala (trouble)?

STYLE: Go Neutral

In today's post, I was trying to do a bit of minimalism. How do you get maximum effect from just one element? Well, I tried.

Go Neutral


I hardly ever go on a complete minimalistic look as it is. I would normally just add elements of minimalism to my outfits and then add a dash of colour, prints, texture or whatever I fancy at the time. But with this outfit, I only wanted the beauty of the jewellery to shine through in all its colour, shape and texture.

Dear Diary, What Do I Want?

Imagine that as you woke up this morning, a cheque was sent to your house with no amount. You just need to fill the amount. What would you write?

Blank Cheque


Earlier this morning I prayed in tongues. Not a word was uttered in any of the languages that I understand.

I wanted to pray in English, but I didn't know what to ask God. Honestly, I wish I knew.

Do You Know How Much Your Dreams Would Cost You?

Sometimes Jesus can beat around the bush, and at other times He hits you deep in your heart with a 2 x4 sword through His parables. I've been a bit uncomfortable lately . . . 

Count The Cost


Today's message is to encourage you to keep to your assignments and dreams and FINISH what you started despite oppositions, fears and barriers.

Key word here is: FINISH

School Uniform Inspired Outfit

Hi sweeties. Enjoying your Sunday? Today's style post reminds me of my school uniforms, amazing where the inspiration comes from in fashion.

Dressed For School


I rocked this outfit to work on a Monday in September. I realized I only posted it on Instagram and not on the blog. Well, I had thought it wasn't necessary but then again, an outfit post becomes a go-to when you absolutely want to stick to your blog schedule and not leave the day blank.

It's Style-Sunday. Style we must blog and post we must have. Isn't that what they call being consistent!?

5 Quotes On Wholeness That Go Deep

As human beings we have many parts to us. The “good,” the “bad,” the “beautiful,” and the “ugly.” None of these parts are good, bad, beautiful, or ugly. They just are. Let's not leave out any part of ourselves. Let's be whole.

Wholeness Quotes


1.

“Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.” 
- Maya Angelou

Stop Chasing After Your Dreams

It's a New Week. No long story. Here is a reminder for us to focus on the most important thing.

What's Your Chase?


You've been told to follow your dreams. Yeah? But what do you do when what you decide to chase starts to run away.

Do you stop running? Or, do you continue to run?

What You Should Know Before Buying Your Next Fashion Item

Happy Sunday, sweethearts of my e-world! I hope you are in good shape? :)

Someone admired the outfit I was wearing and asked me where I usually shop. I didn't want to come and be forming tush, So I said "I don't exactly shop, I do select and pay" and I was quite dramatic in the select and pay part. Lol. No shame. Smh.

I think it's high time I shared some of my shopping tips. Happy Style-Sunday!

Before Buying A Fashion Item


Buy for your body: Among all things to know when shopping, don't ever buy clothes for your future body. Don't! Many of us buy clothes for a future-self dreaming about losing some few kilograms, yet we have no idea how that piece will really fit when we are at that weight (if we even become that weight) and if they will even flatter us. So, why take the risk?

Achieve More By Interpreting Your Client's Dream

It's Career-Wednesday! I've been dying to finish this article for over a month now. When the inspiration came, I didn't know how best to write it in words. It was so deep that I had to chill for days. Thank God it has finally come through.

Whether you have your own business or you have a boss you work for, you've got customers/clients to please. Meeting the needs of your client is a crucial part of growing a successful business or career.

This' a long post but I pray that you find inspiration. :)

Reading Your Client’s Mind


I am currently wearing the shoes of both an employee and an entrepreneur. There are really no perils wearing both shoes if you are being paid and constantly using not less than 70% of your inspired skills. The only exhausting bit can be being able to read the mind of the client and meeting crazy deadlines.

Blessedly, in both shoes, I do the Media thing.

Take Charge

Happy New Week! Here is a quick one to inspire you.

Take Charge

Loving this picture.
Source: Tahiti's Avatar

I woke up with this phrase, or should I call it a command whispering in my heart, 'Take Charge!' 'Take Charge!'

We are born leaders. By design, we are rulers. It's amazing that God spoke to Himself with us in mind on the sixth day of creation!

Think about this . . .during day 6 of creation—before He scooped up dirt, forming it into man and before He put Adam to sleep, took his rib and fashioned woman—God gave us dominion. By birthright—simply because we are His, He gave us the authority to rule.

The Message Bible pus it this way,
“God spoke: “Let Us make human beings in Our image, make them reflecting our nature so they can be responsible for the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of the Earth.” God created human beings; He created them godlike, reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female. God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take Charge!”
I love it!

Merriem-Webster dictionary defines it this way,
to take charge is to accept responsibility for something and have control over it.
Yeses!

God is in control but He wants you to take charge.

He wants you to come up to maturity so you can tame circumstances and exercise dominion over satan, sickness, sin, failure, poverty, and all the works of darkness. He wants you to take charge of your day, your week, your life and situations through His Word; that’s His will and grace for your life. 

So sweetie, it's time to rise up, grow up, and take charge!

God wants a TAKE CHARGE attitude from you.

What are you going to take charge of this week?

Got to run, catch you soon!
Stay on fire!
Stay inspired!

My First Jumpsuit Ever

Happy Style-Sunday sweeties! I have a secret that I’m a bit shy to share. You ready . . . ? Okay. This is the first jumpsuit that I have ever worn. Phew, that felt good to get off my chest. Lol.

My First Jumpsuit Ever


I knew I wanted to wear something other than the typical denim skirt and top that I was known to wear for an event tagged "sporty". I stumbled on a nice thrift store (a.k.a okrika, a.k.a bend-down-select) to pick some items. Then I picked something that was totally different from what I had in mind (if I had any at all). 

A jumpsuit.

Dear Diary, No Picture To Show For It

Always remember your life is to showcase the glory and beauty of God.

No Pictures, More Glorious


That Sunday, in March, I was asked to speak on a subject related to business. I was standing in front of over 800 people at the church service. The excitement of the congregation was contagious. Being a speaker where people laugh, clap and respond to your questions feels amazing. We had fun. But, I have no picture to show for it.

The Bleeding Woman

Again I read about the woman with the issue of blood. This woman’s story pierces my heart in the way that it brings me to tears . . . to Jesus.

"If I can just touch the hem of his garment, I will be healed". That's what she told herself. Such a daring adventure.

The Bleeding Has To Stop

If you've been reading my blog, you're aware about the breakup I had with an ex-friend who attends my church. I got in touch with him again to carry out an official assignment . . . Then, the hurt, the pain, the ache all came back.

"I thought I had moved on." I cried.

Happy WHOLEtober!

Hi sweetheart. How have you been? I fell sick, went to the hospital and was discharged at 8PM yesterday. God's mercy didn't let me step into October while at the hospital. Hallelujah!

Be Whole Again


It's Sunday. It's October - the first day of the month. It's Nigeria's 57th Independence Day celebration. So much to be thankful for.

What are you specially thankful for today?

I'm specially thankful that I am not on the hospital bed right now.
