2015; Life & Lessons 


A few months ago, I had this bright idea to write about the things I have learnt, experienced, seen and observed so I created a note on my phone and added things to the list as it came to me. As I mentioned in my previous post, it culminated into some sort of post summarising 2015 and all it taught me.

See!!! I’m a woman of my word even if it took me almost a week to redeem my promise. hehehehe Anyways, here’s my list, I hope someone’s perspective is challenged, repositioned or just piqued. Let me know your thoughts in the comment section, you can even tell me which you liked best or disliked! Don’t worry this is a judgement free space 🙂

Love doesn’t respect you and your goals, visions, specifications, that thing just humbles you.
  • God’s love and mercy is unending.
  • People will not get your decisions even your family.
  • People do CHANGE and sometimes for the better!
  • The world doesn’t revolve around ANYONE!!
  •  Your Christian walk is not about anyone else but you and God, take time to build it, don’t be scared that it’s not growing as much as you, the pastor or even the “church” thinks it should be growing.
  • I’m the queen of procrastination -_-
  •  I’m attracted to nerdy/geeky men; tell me about plasmids, how the human body works, science behind something, Star Wars etc and I’m yours…
  • It’s okay to tell a man you like him, the world will not end.
  • People will fail you but it’s okay
  • Cohabitation(living with a man) is not a bad thing.
  • Everyone uses everyone, don’t take it too personal when people reach out to you for the sole purpose of using your skills, connections etc. At least they thought of  you!
  • It’s OKAY to cry!
  • Don’t take life too seriously!
  • Making life changing decisions are sometimes riddled with panic attacks, tears and fear.
  • Your fear is valid but don’t let it stop you!
  • The heart is a muscle not a bone it cannot be broken, it is equipped for all life throws at it. Life is the needed exercise to make your heart muscles stronger.
  • A fake social media life is full-time work!
  • The fact that you can buy expensive things doesn’t mean you should talk down to people who can’t/ judge them based on what they wear or have.
  • Putting a man’s photo up as your profile photo doesn’t mean you’re dating or he’s “the one”.
  •  The fact that you think someone’s life is not going at a pace you think it should go doesn’t give you a right to voice your opinion, remember it’s THEIR life.
  • Marriage is great but it is NOT a woman’s sole purpose on earth.
  • Sometimes you need to take your life’s bull by the horns! Take charge, you might make mistakes but they will be YOUR mistakes.
  • Some people do not actually want to get married.
  • You’re opinion about yourself most times is the only one that should COUNT!
  •  People always say “I’m here for you” but never really there when you need to cash up on the offer.
  • Surrounding yourself with people who can listen, I mean just listen is a rare feat but when you do it’s soothing.
  • Mental health issues are sometimes termed differently in our society and can be titled as laziness, fear, irresponsibility or a lie.
  • People lie a LOT!
  • Trust is a loose word used until push comes to shove and the real element of who people are is revealed.
  • A woman can focus on making money, love is not a type of currency and doesn’t pay bills.
  • The class system is strong and thriving in Nigeria, people are treated unfairly because they don’t have anything to “bring to the table”.
  •  There are people who will go the extra mile for you without mumbling, grumbling or asking for a payback, those people should be held on to and appreciated as often as possible.
  •  A lot of people are more concerned about a person’s outward appearance than their mental well-being.
  • Everyone has an opinion about what you do and say, please don’t let their opinion take charge in your life.
  •  Religion is at its peak everywhere, people make up rules and hide under the guise of “the spirit”(don’t ask me which spirit though).
GOD ’s Message came to me: “Son of man, preach against the prophets of Israel who are making things up out of their own heads and calling it ‘prophesying.’ 
‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭13:1-2‬ ‭MSG‬‬
