Protect Yourself Against Office Gossip

Yipee! It's Career-Wednesday. Let's talk about the fact that most times, it is very unlikely to work in a gossip-free environment. People will always talk about people. Always.

So, how do we deal with that?

Dealing With Office Gossip

I am a Christian, so I talk from a Christian perspective. Gossip is a distraction. It is sin.

You Are Not Yet Ready

God's ways are infinitely higher than ours. We can't beat God. Ever.

Still on the PYH Series . . . Joshua 5.

Prepare To Enter

At this point, it was time to attack the enemy. The Israelites felt ready.

Dress Worn As Pinafore For A Smart Look

I was born in the Eighties (Lol!), so I guess it shouldn’t really be a surprise that I adore Eighties fashion trends so much. I love styles that scream creativity, femininity, and colour. Anything.

Dress As Pinafore

On one of those mornings I don't know what to pick out to wear, my sleeveless dresses are my life savers style savers.

Note To Self: You Are Not Crazy

Do you have those times when you seem to lose your mind and you can’t find it? Or, when you can't believe what your mind is thinking?

Note To Self

"Are you crazy?!"

Crazy is the word to describe this past few days. I have a lot going on in my life . . . work being very busy, creating Ankara accessories, blogging, sewing, voicing, being a woman. Not to mention complicated past relationships and awkward current ones. So yes there are valid reasons to think I'm going crazy.

How To Go To Work Every Morning Feeling Refreshed

Nothing drains the energy more than waking up to do the job you do not like. But you know, there is always a way around everything.

Let's talk about getting our lazy selves up in the mornings. Shall we?

Start Refreshed Everyday 

The very day I got inspired to write this article, I had a rough start with a BRT bus ticketer that morning. First, I was mad that he showed up long after the bus had arrived. Second, the ticketer refused to sell me a ticket because he didn't have change. Third, the guy who chose to sit beside me wouldn't stop complaining and grumbling about their poor service and management and how bad the country is. 

I got to the office already exhausted. I was drained and cranky even before sitting at my desk.

Dear Diary, Manchester United Has A Special Place In My Heart

I wanted to come here and brag if Manchester United wins the match against Chelsea at FA Cup quarter-final last night, but mehn!

We lose some and win some. Yeah? :(

Let's take this as my diary entry three weeks ago when we (yes, we!) won the EFL Cup Final 2017.

I love Man U!

I really do love Man U.

When Manchester United is on the field, you can be sure to find me gushing all about it on Twitter after I abandoned Facebook.

The Memorial Stones In Your Journey To The Promised Land

When life is going well, we are tempted to think that we can pretty much take care of ourselves. We tend to neglect God after getting our blessings, our victory.

The PYH Series: Joshua 4.

The Memorial Stones

God wants us, His people to ALWAYS remember what He has done.

Would You Rather Win The Battle Or Win The War?

Here is a quick post. I am literally writing on the road. My discussions and chats lately have been about winning and losing (football, actually). When I read it again on 'Open Heavens' devotional this morning, I knew it was no coincidence.

Lose The Battle To Win The War

It would be nice to win all the battles and the war but sometimes that just isn’t the way to victory.

Sorry, The Perfect Job Does Not Exist

It's Career-Wednesday! Let's be real with what we face at work. Every rose has its thorn and every job has some associated tasks that you’ll perform with gritted teeth. Even in a dream job, there is some form of frustration. Phew.

There Is No Perfect Job

Things change. Our life circumstances change and as we change in response to them, our needs, priorities and perspective shifts accordingly. A job that appeals to you at 13 may likely not be a good fit for you at 23.

Today Is Much More Important

Hi. Hi. How are you doing? It's Monday! PYH Series gets me excited on Mondays.

This is 3rd chapter (Joshua 3) on the PYH Series. It is a reminder that the past cannot hinder the future.

Prepare For Today

Key Verse:

"And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you."

The best security for the future - success, answered prayers, open doors, breakthroughs etc is today's sanctifying.

Today prepares you for the future.

7 Reasons To Love Maxi Skirts

My wardrobe is stuffed with maxi dresses and skirts and I’m always on the hunt for new styles of maxis and different ways to wear them.

Right now I think I have nearly every pattern and colour in the rainbow!

Maxi Skirts Are Bae

Maxis are so absolutely captivating, you just can't stop staring! I am already overly obsessed with this maxi skirt, and these colours, this softness and this print make that obsession even stronger!

BOOK: Kissing The Face Of God By Sam Hinn

I enjoy reading a book in transit. I picked up this book from my personal library the other day and didn't return it for two days.

While reading, I felt a need to review the book, albeit, share insight from the book.

Kissing The Face Of God By Sam Hinn

Kissing The Face Of God is not one of these popular motivational and self help books you see around. It is a spiritual book. Just reading this book brings me to tears and makes me long for more of God in my life.

Is It Better To Be An Entrepreneur Or To Be An Employee?

Happy New Month! 2017 is moving faster than I imagine. Aha! I asked this question on Twitter a couple of months ago, and we couldn't come to a conclusion.

Entrepreneur Vs Employee

It’s really hard to say whether being an entrepreneur or an employee is better.
