Vitamin B Complex

Be Inspired..!!

The vitamin B complex often includes all B vitamins (B1-B12), including folic acid and biotin. All B vitamins are water soluble which means they must be replenished everyday, as any excess is excreted.

There are no plant sources of vitamin B12, it can only be found in organ meats, eggs, and diary. Most B vitamins can be sourced from yeast, wholemeal, flour, nuts, legumes, soy, egg yolks, organ meats, broccoli and green leafy vegetables.

The B vitamins are known to promote growth, particularly vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) and vitamin B12 (Cobalamin). Deficiency of Vitamin B1 (Thiamin) is called Beri Beri Disease.

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is closely associated with Vitamin B6 and B3. B2 is used to activate B6 and produce Vitamin B3. Vitamin B3 (Niacin) can be made within the body by converting dietary tryptophan to make Niacin. Every 60mg of Tryptophan creates 1mg of Niacin.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is…

My Valentines Day

Happy valentines loves,

I’m supposed to be sleeping now because I haven’t slept well in days but I think my sleep process is broken now because I just can’t fall asleep. So, let me tell you about my day.

I had an exam and I completed and submitted a project today. I also had difficulties concentrating while reading. I guess that happens when you’re sleep deprived. Anyhow, the exam turned out to be simple and sweet.

My handwriting is horrible 😑😖
I guess I am a goofball 😁

Here is a rare picture of me on valentines 😁😁

After the exam, my classmates and I signed on each others shirts (it’s a weird ritual Nigerian students do) as a sign that we had graduated. We do this even though we still have a few exams in other faculties 😑. I was honestly quite drained and in bad shape so it wasn’t a fun process.

After the ‘fun’ process, I grabbed a bite with boo and we cracked our usual dry jokes 🤦‍♀️ and said silly mushy stuffs. This was the highlight of my day. I’m going to try hard to sleep now.

I hope your valentine was fun. I also hope we’re sharing love around. I helped my friend analyze his data yesterday and he was so happy it made me happy and tingly all over 🥰.

All the love people ♥️♥️

PS: This is what I mean by signing on each others shirts. I didn’t take any pictures; I had no strength. 😑

Love and light, people 💙

Hello my loves ♥️

I earnestly hope you have all been well. School has been hectic; I’ve barely been getting any sleep. But I’m also weirdly happy at the same time because someone’s going to be a graduate real soon. I just want to share a thought (or thoughts 😀) from the Bible that can help us live better lives.

Ephesians 4:12 – 16 teaches that God gave each of us gifts so that we can grow. We must continue to grow in Christ (by studying the word of God and applying what we read and learn to our daily lives) until we become mature in Christ. This way, we will not be deceived by naysayers and the body of Christ will grow and be made stronger.

This means:
-No more lies.
-Don’t be angry more than a day at a time.
-When angry, don’t do evil or hurt people.
-Don’t steal; use your hands for good. God says if you do so, he will give you what to share with the poor.
-Don’t say harmful things when you talk; say words people need to make them stronger.
-Don’t always be bitter, angry or mad; this will make the Holy Spirit sad.
-Be kind and loving to each other.
-Forgive each other, just as God forgave us by asking His Son to pay the ultimate price for us.
-Be humble, gentle and patient; accept each other with love

We are all joined with peace through the Spirit. So, remember, there is One God, One Father of everything, One Lord, One Faith and One Baptism.
♥️♥️

04/02/20: Life Update and Encouragement

Hello beautiful people 🤗,

Life has been so fast-paced and stressful. I’m doing two final year projects at the same time (I know, my department sucks!), reading for exams that begin in a week and I’m actively involved in a 21 days spiritual program. This period has taught me to appreciate those periods where I just get to chill. You know, life has ups and downs and I have learnt to value the ups and also value the downs because they teach you valuable life skills and also make you value the ups much more.

I just wanted to say a little word of encouragement. If you’re in a rough patch like me, just draw from the countless sources of love and encouragement. You can draw from the Bible, family, friends and just the awareness that rough patches lead to beautiful gifts or things. I love calling my mum because whenever I do, she just makes peace and joy bubble up in me. She is so understanding and she encourages me and prays for me. So, have a well of support. I’ve also begun to read my Bible much more frequently and I can say that I’m more at peace and filled with joy and love. You could also do that. I believe the Bible is a spirit, because it always encourages and meets you at the point of your needs.

Finally, we should try to be aware of the good things around us during our rough patches and also look forward to the beautiful things ahead. I know that even though I’m super stressed, I’m well fed, alive and healthy. So many people do not have that. So, that’s a reason to be happy and appreciative. I also look forward to the degree I’m going to earn after all the hard work. That gives me immense joy too.

I hope I’ve encouraged someone today. Life is really what we make of it. Let’s try to make it a happy one!!

All the love, beautiful people ♥️♥️

Please tell me how your day have been in the comment section. Let’s draw support from each other 🤗.

My reading list: February 2020

Happy new month people ♥️♥️♥️

Everyone says February is a month of love. So, let’s be intentional about showing love to our family, friends, loved ones, neighbours and just, basically everyone.

Last month I said I’d be posting my reading list for every month and I’m going strong 💪🙂. The books I read last month taught me so much. One was on relationships (all my lovers) and the other was on self-love and embracing who you are. In case you missed them, you can check them out here.

So, the books for February are (drumrolls please):

1. Things I wished I’d known before we got married – Chapman Gary: According to the introduction of the book, this is not a book for planning a good wedding but a book on how to have a successful marriage. The book has about 12 chapters. It was recommended by a friend and she said she learnt a lot. The author said that marriage is the bedrock of the society so, I think we should all strive to have successful marriages for the good of the society. The link to the book is below, check it out.

Things I wish I’d known

2. How to study the Bible – Watchman Nee: This book was also recommended by a friend. I’m currently trying to grow spiritually and studying the Bible is not going as I’d imagined. So, I really hope this book helps me understand and develop better Bible reading ethics. The link is also below, check it out.

Alright loves,

Have a beautiful and fulfilling February. I know I will 😉🤗

The whirls of sadness

I’ve been thinking about you Aaron.

I saw you yesterday,

Sitting in the back, at Mo’s,

Surrounded by happy faces and excited hands,

Your sadness magnified a thousand times.

I’ve been wondering how you are.

I’m not so stupid I don’t know its tough.

I know I smiled and waved last year but,

I felt dead on the inside.

I’m wondering if it’s the same for you.

I’ve been meaning to call.

I keep thinking I would have felt better if someone called.

But, no one did.

I don’t want that for you.

I should call.

Tell you I understand.

I understand how hopeless you feel.

I understand how much you miss him.

I understand how bleak life seems without him.

I understand how Mo’s is lifeless without him.

I should call.

But what do I say?

I should just, start somewhere.

But, how does one get over sadness so deep it crushes your spirit.

I still have mine.

Maybe, I want to call so I can lose some of mine.

Maybe, we need each other.

Maybe, together we can let go,

Of the shackles of sadness etched into our souls.

I should just walk in.

Sit beside you for a bit.

Tell you I understand.

Tell you I know.

Tell you to lean into me and maybe,

I could lean into you too.

Tell you it’ll all be fine,

Even if I don’t believe that.

Maybe, just maybe,

That’ll work.

How I write

Hey guys,

I hope you have been well.

My internet service provider has been very horrible to me. My internet is quite close to rubbish. So, I’m always dangling over some surface trying to get network. Yes, that’s my life now.

Anyways,

I want to talk about my writing process. Unlike many, my writing process is very simple and spontaneous. I don’t plan to write. Something just pops into my head and I just type it. If I don’t have a device I just write it down in summary and then get back to it later.

I’m inspired by everything I see. I’m a very observant person (I like to think so), so everything speaks to me. So, the only complex thing in my writing process is the sifting process. I know that you wouldn’t want to know everything that crosses my mind so, I have to decide what is relevant and helpful. So I have to develop the write up in my head and see if it has a relevance.

Once I decide it does, I just write. I’ve found that if I don’t write when the idea strikes, that idea is most likely gone for ever. So, I strike while the iron is hot.

As for a writing space, I don’t have one. I can write anywhere, with noise or without noise. Since I type most of the time, I usually write on my bed. I know it’s bad but I hate sitting at desks.

I haven’t written any creative piece in a while. All my ideas seem so lame. I’ve been looking around for intricate writing prompts so I can try my hand on maybe a short story or flash fiction. I’ve decided that poetry is maybe not for me. So if you come across some good writing prompts, please put the link in the comments section. Gracias

Also, please let me know what your writing process looks like. I might just learn a thing or two so I can become a better writer.

Have a beautiful day loves,

Xoxo

Seven Ways to Sabotage Your Prayer Life

From The Darkness Into The Light

Article by

Greg Morse

Staff writer, desiringGod.org

Unanswered prayer will test our faith. Weeks, or months, even years, of waiting on some particular request can tempt us to despair. Jesus, our compassionate Lord, knew this and told a parable to encourage us to endure in prayer and not lose heart (Luke 18:1–8). All of us need such encouragements.

Yet God also gives other graces to help us along in our prayer lives: he teaches us what hinders them. With all the good that unanswered prayer can provide, Scripture also has another category of unanswered prayer: the kind we ourselves have caused. Sometimes we are the architects, building the ceiling our prayers hit.

How to Sabotage Your Prayer Life

More often than we might consider, Christians sabotage our own prayers. Periodically in his word, God prompts our weary eyes from staring into the heavens wondering why the floodgates haven’t…

My 2 cents on the poor state of education

Hey guys,

How is your day going? I earnestly hope its going better than my day. I’m administering questionnaires in secondary schools (public and private) for my final year project work. It has opened my eyes to the true state of the education system in Nigeria, specifically Oyo state. My questionnaire’s design and wording is very simple but, it was still a hassle for some of the students to fill and I’m administering to SS2 and SS3 students (students about to get into the university). There is a section in my questionnaire on the type of family of the respondents, and these students were asking me the meaning of monogamy and polygamy. In SS3????

I mean, you talk about the state of the school building and instructional materials and it’s so bad. The class I was in, there was no board -not even a blackboard- and the teachers write on the wall with white chalk. The wall is painted black. The chairs are barely there. The students cannot even speak the lingua-franca of the country -English. The teachers are not paid enough to motivate them, so, the students do not get good education.

It’s really sad and horrible because we all want Nigeria to be great but a country is only as great as its education system. I mean, education is the bedrock of every other sector; without it, there can be no progress. And so, this shows that there can be no growth and development in the country if our education system is in disarray.

I earnestly hope that every one of us plays a part in the delivery of quality education because our children deserve the best they can get. Our leaders should make education a priority and apportion appropriate funds for the education system while ensuring that the funds are used properly. Teachers should be passionate about impacting knowledge into the lives of these children. Parents should try as much as possible to provide both aid and opportunities for their children. Many parents are not interested in their children’s education; they do not check their work or provide books and other materials.

All these occurrences are leading me to believe that education is my calling because I do not think I can look away from the current poor state of things. I enjoin everyone who can help to donate what they can to any school closeby. If you don’t have, you can volunteer your services or your time to these children. They deserve the world. I wouldn’t be who I am if I didn’t get the good education I got and I’m forever grateful to my parents, teachers and schools for that.

We should continue the fight for quality education, in any way we can help. We can spread awareness and attract helpers. At least, this is what I can do for now.

Well,

Have a beautiful day loves,

♥️♥️

My Wish

You know how kids live, I wish I could live like that.

My mum has a daycare and ever since I was 10 I have helped out on various occasions. I think that now I have a very large web of knowledge on children because I have been privileged to meet many of them. They all have the same basic characteristic – they live life as it happens.

These bundles of joy (majority of the time 😑) never hold a grudge for up to a whole day. They eat when they see food, sleep when they feel sleepy, cry when they feel sad and are happy about every other time. They love their parents so much, they want to be held and they are always proud to say all they’ve accomplished to anyone at all. They are free to act as they please and they don’t care what anyone thinks. They see new people and it’s easy to talk to them or you take their toy away and they don’t talk to you again (until they forget you took their toy or you bring a replacement 😂). Everything is so simple and easy with them.

This is my wish. I want to live a life that isn’t held down by what life is supposed to be. I hope we cry when we want without thinking of all the complexities attached, I hope we laugh when we want and I hope we make friends with who we want without thinking of how the world sees our pair. I hope we are able to say no when we want to and say yes when we want to. Babies get hurt but they get back up again. We can also get back up; it’s not restricted to children. So, we should try to live life as simple as it is without adding so many complexities to everything. I say try because we are not as innocent or as unaware as children and so where its unconscious for them to act the way they do, it’s something we have to learn and practice till it becomes a part of us.

We should share love without wondering if it’s going to come back and bite us in the bottom, we should help others because we can or because we’re in a position to. My dad keeps saying that you help people not for clout or for fame or for acknowledgment but because you’ve been blessed and opportuned to be a help to that person.

I think life is as easy as we make it. I wish to get to the point where I wake up and I don’t start worrying of how the day is going to be. I just act like a child by doing what I have to do and if I get hurt I just cry and learn how to do it right. I think this is ultimately how life is supposed to be. Plus it’s an added bonus if you believe in God because then you wouldn’t even think about worrying or anything because you have a father who cares for you as his little child.

This is just a random thought I had as I woke up (grogily, I should add) and I hope I was able to word it in a sensible way.

Have a beautiful day wherever you are!

♥️♥️

Ps: Life is too important to be taken seriously – Oscar Wilde

My reading list: January 2020

This is probably very late a post, but, better late than never!

I decided to read a lot this year because I’d be majorly free to do so and also because it would be a great way to gain a lot of knowledge that would be useful to me later in life. It would also be good if I cultivated a culture of reading, ha!

So, I will be sharing my reading list for each month. I already started reading the books (there are two of them) but feel free to take a look at them anytime.

1. Act like a lady, Think like a man – Steve Harvey: I have read this book before but it was during my teens and so I don’t think I really understood what was being explained. Unlike what the preface says, this book can be read by men and women alike. Women, so we can understand the basic workings of majority of men to help us navigate our man. Men, so they can understand how women see men to help them know what to do. I haven’t gone so far but I’ve learnt the 3ps of men’s love. If a man loves you he’d profess his love, provide for you (not just in monetary terms now) and try to protect you. If a man does all these three, he’s all in. The link to the book is below; you can check it out.

Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man

2. The Gifts of Imperfection – Brene Brown: This book was recommended by Jen (bless her soul!) and its a beautiful one. I haven’t gone far in this book but it’s a book about learning to embrace who we are. The author says we have to find the courage to live and love with our whole hearts and I agree that we can’t give what we don’t have. So we have to love and accept ourselves for who we are without worrying about what people think. So far, it’s a great book especially for anyone struggling with self-love or just anyone who thinks they could be better as someone else. You’re the best as you, love. The link to the book is below; you can check it out.

The Gifts of Imperfection – Embrace Who You Are

Alright loves,

Distractions: My top 5 plus tips to help

1. Games: Oh, how I love games. They relax me. So, if I’m doing a task, I’ll take a little breather after a while, to play some games and relax a bit. This doesn’t seem like a big deal but, trust me, it is. All the games I play have challenges and I always try to beat those challenges. So, while playing I’d get carried away, you know.

2. Arranging: I’m obsessed with arranging stuff. Sometimes it’s the arranging I do in my head that’s the worst. I’d just sit and start thinking of how much better things would look a certain way. It consumes my time (and me 😑).

3. YouTube: YouTube is good; YouTube is great. I go there to look for something and I see different explanations, versions or types of the same thing. Sometimes I see related things I don’t really need. But, my mind wants more and so I go for it, at the detriment of what I really have to do.

4: My Imagination: My friends wonder how I can stay home all day but, they don’t know there is a whole world going on in my mind. I could literally sit a whole day planning, imagining, visualizing and thinking about any and everything. It’s good because some times I get brainwaves but other times I’m thinking of things I don’t need to be thinking about at that time. For instance, sometimes I think of how to discipline my kids if they act a particular way. Likeee, I don’t need this now.

5. Books: I’m a home body so I do a lot of reading. I read on wattpad, my phone, my laptop and physical books. I read all sorts of books. I’m also a kind of person who can’t stop when she starts something; I just drive on till the end. I can’t read halfway; I have to finish once I start. This is bad for someone who has tests, assignments, work and a life to live.

Distractions are a part of life. Everyone has something or somethings that distract them. How we deal with these distractions is the important thing. For me, the best way I curb my distractions is to time everything I do. I know it makes life into a routine but it really helps me. For instance, I’m typing school work, I want to rest my back and so I decide in my mind (with an alarm to help) to play games or any of my guilty pleasures for 20 minutes. I can’t just stop doing them because they are things I love but I can restrict them so that they don’t become things that distract me.

Another thing I do is to create to-do lists. If I have a to-do list and I tick off everything I have to do, then I have time to indulge in my guilty pleasures. For some people social media is a distraction, so, they can leave off social media till after a day’s work and just go full throttle till its bedtime. This way it’s not a distraction anymore, just something you do for fun.

Distraction is something I’m very intentional about. I try to think of ways to curb my distraction everytime and I try to always be aware of what I’m doing at every point in time. This way I can do what I’m supposed to do when I’m supposed to.

Feel free to share tips you use to curb your distraction; they just might help me or others.

Cheers to the year 2020 🥂

Happy new year folks!! 🤗♥️

My 2019 was a good year (hope yours was too). I learnt a lot and I grew a lot. School was stressfullll but I grew a lot of relationships last year and I learnt a lot of things that are very useful for my career.

I graduate this year 🤗, so I can already feel that this year is going to be a beautiful one. This year, I’m just going to be focusing mostly on my career (that I haven’t decided yet 😑). I have this belief that I should not bring any kid into the world if I can’t take care of them. I’m getting older and now is the time to start getting things in order, for me (cause I like the good life) and for my future babies 😎.

This year, I hope my message on self-love gets around a lot because I think that love for one self is the driving force for one’s happiness, fulfilment and growth. I’m going to keep reading and learning this year and I’d really love and appreciate it if I get book recommendations. I’d also love music recommendations. My playlist was stagnant 2019.

For you, my blogging family ♥️, this year I’m going to be more devoted on here ( so help me God!). I love you guys and you’re a part of my joy so, you deserve more from me; I’ll work on it!

I wish everyone a happy new year. I hope this year we all get closer to our life goals. I hope this year we grow, learn and love more. Please, self-love is key but love for our fellow humans is much more important. This year is going to be a beautiful one so please, let’s spread love this year. Grow your relationships with your loved ones, help people out, smile often and try to lift a spirit everyday.

Love, Ada.

Some of my Fav Blog Posts of 2019

Hello,

Its me.

🙂

How have your holiday celebrations been? Mine has been truly blissful. I’m not looking forward to school resumption, at all.

I’ve read so many blog posts this year and there are some that are truly amazing because they connect with me on some deep levels. So, I want to share them in the case that they will also connect with someone else.

1.How to overcome feeling not good enough: In this post, Ash reminds me (in case I forget) that I am enough, that comparison is the thief of my joy and that I should constantly give myself love. She goes on to give five tips to overcome this horrible, horrible, horrible feeling of not being enough. Check out her post for the tips 🙂

2. My mom: I’m not really a fan of poetry but, this poem is so beautiful and sweet. I totally agree with Miss Vanilla, my parents are a precious gift to my life. I love them so much and I’ll always be grateful for and to them.

3. Wear your crown properly: I never miss an opportunity to toot my horn and Oladewalaura reminds me to never settle for less. Its a very simple yet powerful post. Everyone deserves greatness!

4. Choose people wisely: I have this post up on my blog but I think this is something that cannot be emphasized enough. Like Andy said, we are not answerable to any person for who we are, so please, be friends with people who accept you for who you are and love you like I love tomatoes 🙂

5. Don’t just live your life. Conquer it: Your life counts. My life counts. Everyone’s life counts. This post is so in line with my blog theme, which is self-love. Just like Rageshree said, don’t consider yourself lesser than anyone and give yourself all the love because you rock. This way, you’d get to live life so much fuller and better and happier.

There are so many more beautiful, inspiring and entertaining posts out there that I do love. But, I’m just going to stop here.

However, I do want to mention some blogs that I can’t just decide on one favorite post. They do a lot and its really inspiring for lazy me 🙂

Tis the reason; For the season

Luke 2: 11 – “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” (KJV)

Isaiah 9: 6-7 – “A child will be born to us. God will give a son to us. He will be responsible for leading the people. His name will be Wonderful Counselor, Powerful God, Father who Lives Forever, Prince of Peace. Power and peace will be in his kingdom. It will continue to grow. He will rule as king on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom. He will make it strong, by ruling with goodness and fair judgement. He will rule it forever and ever. The Lord of heaven’s armies will do this because of his strong love for his people.” (ICB)

Today, we celebrate the birth of God’s gift to us.

Power and peace is Jesus Christ’s kingdom and he has made it available for all his children. He rules us with goodness and fair judgement and he rules us forever. He gives us joy, peace and happiness.

The book of Isaiah 9 V 2-3 says “Now those people live in darkness. But they will see a great light. They live in a place that is very dark. But a light will shine on them. God, you will cause the nation to grow. You will make the people happy. And they will show their happiness to you. It will be like the joy during harvest time. It will be like the joy of people taking what they have won in war.”

Jesus Christ is the greatest gift to mankind; through him we have the gift of salvation. When we are saved in Christ, we have joy, happiness, good success, peace and eternal life. We live a fulfilled life!

This is why we celebrate His birth today because it is a birth so powerful and great for us.

For all who have not experienced the love of Christ, its the most amazing and joyous thing in life. Its the greatest achievement anyone can have.

 

Therefore, today as we celebrate the Love of God upon us, let us share love to everyone around us and those far and wide. Let us share love to all. Lets appreciate our friends and family and shine our light so bright that people begin to see how blessed it is to be a Child of God.

My dad always says that his greatest qualification is COG ( Child of God), lol.

Merry Christmas Mi Amors; Have a good, blessed and blissful one!

Question Mark
Question Mark

Jessica was watchingThe Young and the Restlesson television when the phone rang. She stretched lazily in the direction of her landline and picked up the receiver and said, “Hello.”

“Good morning, Ms. Williamson,” said the voice on the other end of the phone connection. “This is DarrylMartin, your landlord.”

“Good morning, Mr. Martin,” Jessica replied. She knew the reason why the landlord had called and was waiting for him to bring up the topic.

“I have noticed that you are late with this month’s payment of the rent,” Darryl said. He paused to take a deep breath and continued with his statement, “I am giving you two weeks from today to pay it and if you are unable to pay the rent money at the given time-period, you will have to move out!”

Live!

Amigos!

I’m still up. I guess the thoughts of if I’m doing all that I can be doing still creep in from time to time. You know there’s a lot of pressure stimulus everywhere. There’s pressure to come out top of my class, there’s pressure to do something extraordinary for Jesus, there’s pressure to start earning some money because of the society I’m in and there’s pressure to network and get connections.

I’ve been wondering and, honestly it’s not so much about the pressures i face. Its about how to cope and how to do what’s good for you in the midst of these pressures. I mean, I know that I have a plan and I’m going at my own pace. But, it seems people, situations and resources don’t seem to follow along on my plan.

You know, I’m not the book type so I know I can’t live by having my nose in my books all the time. So, I’m fine with a 2.1. But, the society we live in, the first classes get better jobs than the 2.1s. My parents also don’t understand this foolishness of mine.

But, I do. I mean, I have a plan. No one thinks that maybe I want to run my own thing and I’d rather spend time picking up skills I actually need.

I’ve created this plan and path I want to follow. But, sometimes these pressures make it seem foolish and try to make me doubt myself. But, I have to stay strong.

I think that no one should decide what you do. I believe that everyone has their own destiny and so should be given the freewill to explore their options. I know that these pressures are just mostly projections of people’s ideas for us upon us; sometimes because they care so much. But, what you do with you is ultimately up to you. Never forget that!

Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle. Your life will be lived by you so plan it so it suits you. Don’t take a job you hate because society frowns on what you love doing. Don’t dump your talents because people think they are stupid. Don’t give up on your dreams and ideas because people say they won’t make you prosper. Make a plan for your life and follow it because what you do affects how your life turns out and I really think this affects our happiness.

Life is worth living. So live! Live for you! In the end, it’s the memories and impacts that matter.

Let the celebrations begin – the right way!

Happy new month amigos. Today is December 1, the beginning of the birth month of our Great Father. As the celebrations creep in, it’s always easy for us to get so caught up in our feelings and to-do lists that we forget the reason for the celebration: the gift of Immanuel, “God with us”.

Let us take these four weeks to reflect on what Jesus has done for us and prepare our hearts for what’s coming. Let’s align our hearts and minds with truths about who Jesus is. He is our Lord and Saviour and he gave it all for us. Let’s revel in the wonders of his love this month.

♥️ Happy new month loves ♥️

Perception and everyday life

Hello family,

How are you doing?

I woke up this morning with a thought on my mind; a thought on perception. According to the dictionary on my phone 😎, it is “the organisation, identification and interpretation of sensory information”. This means that perception is the way we see and understand the things that happen to us or around us.

I woke up to the realization that we, humans, have the superpower to interpret all stimuli into beliefs that suit us. We have the power to see everything that happens everyday and choose what to believe. We have the choice of preception and this is key because our beliefs affect our jobs, careers, communication, relationships and our lives as a whole. Our beliefs influence our goals, our methods and our accomplishments. Please note that when I say beliefs, I’m talking about core beliefs that include our perception of the control of our lives, our perception of our competencies, knowledge and intelligence, the value we ascribe to various aspects of our lives, our reasons for doing things and the value we attach to ourselves.

Perception is also a selection process; this means that we can decide the information that is relevant and the information that is irrelevant.

This wonderful superpower makes me believe that I am competent enough to carry out my tasks despite having some challenges. This belief will motivate me to do my task efficiently and this will inevitably eventually lead to achieving my goals. This is just an example of how perception works.

Today, I want you to think about your beliefs and discover the areas in which you need to change your perception in order to derive a better you.

Have a beautifully superb day folks! 😘

Ps: Rashford’s goal of yesterday is now my new favourite goal.😍

My forever

My love,

I remember clearly how we met.

I didn’t fall in love at first sight.

I wish I did.

I would have more memories of this beautiful feeling inside of me.

This consuming love that somehow makes me whole.

I love you so much it’s becoming all I am.

I adore you.

I sleep everyday with you in mind and wake up to the thoughts of you.

I dream of forever with you.

I see our kids and I know I’ll be the bad cop.

I know you’ll be the best father for my kids.

I want you by my side forever.

I want this beautiful love forever.

I promise to treat you right forever.

Because, if I lose you, I lose me.

And my beautiful forever.

 

😚😚😎

It’s been a while I wrote something creative ish.

Since it’s the month of love, here’s a little something something.

💞💞❣️

Hey Lovelies😚

I’ve missed being here so much. A lot has happened since I was here last. I broke my phone and got a new one, school resumed 😪 and my country just started her elections. I’m sorry for being away all this time; it was really beyond my control.

Last year, I got my temporary voters card. I got it mainly as a means of identification for my bank account. This year I was supposed to get my permanent voters card but I was discouraged by the tedious process involved and the fact that I would not vote. I’m not disinterested in politics and I know that true change only comes from we, the people. But, the violence attached to elections in Nigeria makes my parents say “no movement today”. It makes us so scared; it takes our voices away.

Somewhere close to my home, the ballot boxes and some people were burnt. We have heard so many accounts of violence and intimidation. I know I sound like a coward but without life there can be no change. I’m just praying to God and asking for his help in my country cos she definitely needs it.

Please say a prayer for Nigeria wherever you are. Let God intervene in my Country; she has great potential. Amen

Have a blessed day Lovelies.

Using Keystone Habits To Build A Healthier Daily Routine

lifewithlilred

We all have habits that we carry out every day. Some habits are healthy, such as going to bed early and drinking a lot of water. Other habits are not so healthy, e.g. smoking and snoozing the morning alarm ten times. The healthier habits we have, the better our day usually goes. Overall, this can add up to a much more productive, satisfying life. Those with healthy habits tend to achieve more, enjoy life more, and feel their best. Wouldn’t you like to be one of those people?

In this post, we’re going to focus on keystone habits. What’s a keystone habit? A keystone habit is a habit that can impact how you act the rest of the time. They are the habits that can spark chain reactions. If you’re still confused as to what this is exactly, we’re going to go through a few great keystone habits to pick…

A Short Story with All Words Beginning with the Letter W

Here is a beautiful work of art. It is absolutely brilliant and genius.

Learn Fun Facts

The following 440-word short story consists entirely of words beginning with the letter W. It contains only 18 hyphenated words. This anonymously-written story first appeared in the November 18, 1876, issue of the Waikato Times:

“Warm weather, Walter! Welcome warm weather! We were wishing winter would wane, weren’t we?”

“We were well wearied with waiting,” whispered Walter wearily. Wan, white, woe-begone was Walter; wayward, wilful, worn with weakness, wasted, waxing weaker whenever winter’s wild, withering winds were wailing. Wholly without waywardness was Winifred, Walter’s wise, womanly watcher, who, with winsome, wooing way, was well-beloved.

“We won’t wait, Walter; while weather’s warm we’ll wander where woodlands wave, won’t we?”

Walter’s wanton wretchedness wholly waned. “Why, Winnie, we’ll walk where we went when we were with Willie; we’ll weave wildflower wreaths, watch woodmen working; woodlice, worms wriggling; windmills whirling; watermills wheeling; we will win wild whortleberries, witness wheat winnowed.”

Change is Beautiful

I follow potato._.god on instagram (her stories are always so relatable) and I was viewing her stories last night when I saw this picture. It was so me and it got me thinking. I realized how much I’ve changed and how much better I feel about myself.

For the past three years or so (since I turned 16), I’ve done a lot of self-discovery and self-work. I’ve never really been depressed, without self-confidence or anything like that. Instead, my areas of concern were the opposite. I’ve always been very confident and proud of myself and my abilities. I never really had friends growing up and it was mostly because I couldn’t picture myself with many of the people I met or had things to do with. I couldn’t tolerate people or reduce my standards for anyone. Once I disagreed with someone, that was the end of that friendship.

This was me until i got into school at 16. I’m still basically the same person but I’ve changed greatly and I’ve learnt so much. I mean, I used to feel so high up there that I couldn’t go out without looking perfect and I’m not so pretty so you can imagine how much time of my life I lost. Now I know that its not just the physical beauty that matters. So I can wear any decent thing, with my clean hair, face and, body carrying myself confidently and feel so damn beautiful. All because I’ve discovered my true worth and my worth is not how gorgeous I look or how smart I am. Its more of what I can add to another person’s life. Its how I can enrich your life. I mean, I know its important to act incredibly smart and look smashing because I still do it every once in a while just so I know its not a big deal and I can totally achieve it. But, for me my life has changed so much that I’m so invested in how to help others, how to build a legacy and live up to my father’s expectations, build my own family beautifully that I’m not even bothered most of the time if I look like a troll in the streets. I know deep down I’m so much more.

This discovery has helped me build strong relationships that one argument can’t scatter 🙂 . I have beautiful relationships where there is mutual learning, uplifting, help, support and beautiful love. My friends and family have faults but now I know that I do too. So, although I’m still super picky (probably because I usually spot bad friendships a mile away), I’m more accommodating and forgiving now. The very few people in my life can attest to that 🙂 .

I believe we learn and improve everyday, even if its a tiny bit. I’m so glad you’re with me on this journey of mine.

I love you guys!!

A letter that is hitting girls around the world

I just read this and I feel that every girl needs to hear this. It is very thoughtful and apt.

SUCCESS INSPIRERS' WORLD

Girls around the world face enormous challenges. Many of them end with broken hearts. Some boys end with broken hearts also but girls suffer the most. I can’t sit and watch my lovely girls end with shattered hearts. Hence this advice from a father who cares.

My dear girls,
This is a loving letter to you from someone who cares. You will see how much I love you as you read along. I am writing to you from the bottom of my heart and I am happy you are willing to listen to advice from an old man.

I am an old man and I know what I am talking about. I am writing to you because I know the challenges you face as girls. I know what many of you are going through. I have been interacting with young people since 1981. This has enabled…

Choose People Wisely

This is so apt. I couldn’t have said this better.

Lifemerized

We all have been heart broken some time or the other. So many times, we expect things which should be obvious in the given situation but often get less than deserved. To look carefully, we actually could have the control of what and how we feel. It’s just our way of looking at things!

So often we go around chasing people who don’t want to stay. We’re so worried about these people who are completely incapable of understanding us and our emotions. The only reason we care so much about their existence in our lives, the only reason we care so much about what they think of us is our unexplained affection for them. We sometimes pick a liking for a person whom we know so little and simply seem to not have control over it. We think of the non-obvious and start putting in so much from our side…

6 Steps to Overcome Worry

I believe worrying is pointless. I know its normal but I usually accept what I can change and what I can’t. This way I don’t bother myself over what I can’t control. Instead, I focus my energy on what I can control and what I can help.

This is the way I’m built, but I know a lot of people who suffer chronic anxiety and worrying. And I also know from experience that telling them to stop worrying only makes them worry more. They have to decide that they don’t want it anymore and then make a conscious effort to stop it. You, as their friend, can only support and help to reaffirm that everything will be fine. Do not pressure them to stop worrying or harass them to change; it doesn’t help.

You can overcome your worry by following these steps:

  1. Try to kill anxious thoughts by exercising, meditating on your present situation, practicing yoga and practicing deep breathing exercises. These techniques give you immediate escape from anxiety and help to build your brain against anxiety. The more practice you have, the more control you’ll have over anxiety and worry.
  2. Talk to a good, non-judgmental friend about your worries. This way you can come up with a solution to your problems or you may realize that they are not worthy of worry. This can also help you determine if your problems are within your control or not, that is, if you should worry or not.
  3. Learn to plan your worrying. Set a time frame for your worrying. This should not be too early so that it does not destabilize your day and not too late so that it does not affect your sleep routine. This time frame should be the same everyday and should be maintained. If a worry pops up during the rest of the day, write a quick note and remind yourself that there is time for worry later. During the worry period you write out your worries and decide which ones are valid and which ones are unnecessary and try to figure out solutions to the problems. This way you’ll find it easier to balance your thoughts and soon enough you’ll reduce your worry time until you no longer need it.
  4. Try to differentiate between solvable worries and unsolvable worries. Then, try to figure out and research solutions to the solvable problems. For the unsolvable worries, learn to accept the uncertainty and your inability to do anything. Its all a part of life. Worrying is often a way we try to predict what the future has in store-a way to prevent unpleasant surprises and control the outcome. The problem is, it doesn’t work. Thinking about all the things that could go wrong doesn’t make life any more predictable. Focusing on worst-case scenarios will only keep you from enjoying the good things you have in the present. To stop worrying, tackle your need for certainty and immediate answers.
  5. Always acknowledge your worries. Never ignore them.
  6. Try to always focus on the present. When the worry starts creeping in, try not to get frustrated; it doesn’t help. Instead, focus on your breathing, your present situation, the task you are performing and your present surrounding. This skill of trying to maintain consciousness of the present requires practice. Overtime, you’ll develop a new habit that will help you overcome the terrible habit of worrying.

Try these steps to overcome worry. I wish you good luck!

Lots of love,

Ada

EIGHT ATTITUDES I TOTALLY CANNOT STAND and then some

Hey guys, how has your New Year been so far? I hope it has been amazing and beautifully blissful.

Well then, let’s just dive in.

  1. Chronic complaining: This is the one I hate so much. These people complain about any and everything. They never see good. There’s always a problem. They always focus on the problems and never see progress just the setbacks. To me, this is the WORST attitude on earth and possibly in the universe.
  2. Wastefulness: This one is not tolerable as well. I feel that if something is in excess, it can either be saved or given out to others. I don’t like it when people just throw things out because they don’t want them anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I hate keeping unnecessary things. I declutter all the time but i don’t dispose of useful things or let them rot.
  3. Narrow-mindedness: Narrow-minded people see things in one way and are never open to see things in a different point of view. It often stems from ignorance. This attitude should not be confused with people who have firm beliefs. Narrow-minded people are very judgmental and they must always be right. They don’t listen to what others have to say, they’d rather argue. Its infuriating.
  4. Chronic dishonesty: I’m not talking about lying here because no matter how we all try to not lie, we all do. It might be deliberate or not, in order to avoid some bad events (not saying its a good attitude tho). What I am talking about is deliberate deceitfulness, lying, cheating and a lack of integrity all rolled up into one. You cannot believe what these people say or do and you cannot trust that it is in your interest. They act without honesty and are always dubious. Please stay clear of this attitude.
  5. Vainness: While I totally appreciate people who are confident and have a lot of self-love, I do not like vain people. They are conceited and they think so highly of themselves, they feel other people are stupid, dumb or of lesser value. I don’t stay near these kind of people because they make me want to put a hole in their face. Being proud of oneself is important but becoming so proud is the beginning of one’s downfall.
  6. Envy: You can look at others as a source of inspiration. Other than that, maybe admiration. You shouldn’t begin to feel discontented or resentful that they have what they have and wish that they didn’t have it (I’m not sure that my tense is right but bear with me 🙂 ).
  7. Mistrust: When you have a mistrusting attitude, you are always suspicious of others and you have no confidence in others. I know its hard to trust in people but its good to have a little faith in humans. They can be really amazing sometimes.
  8. Filthiness and Dirtiness: This is a no no. Its unhealthy for both the dirty/filthy person and other people around. Even if you don’t organize your things, do not keep dirt lying around. Do not pile dirt, wash things regularly and try to clean regularly both body and environment.
  9. Don’t take responsibility for things you can’t control. No need for extra pressure or stress in your life.
  10. Don’t dwell on negatives.
  11. Please, do not always jump to conclusions. It is truly the root of so many fights. Assumptions, tsk tsk 🙂
  12. Please try to overcome laziness. This one has been hounding me but I’ll overcome 🙂
  13. Procrastination is a deadly killer. Do not put off what you can do today for tomorrow.

Our attitudes define us. Lets work towards better, positive attitudes for all-round well-being.

P.S. There’s more but I’m really sleepy. So, comment below attitudes we should all change.

|| Psychology behind the Excuses ||

I make excuses a lot and I’m trying to stop that. I think I do that whenever what I want to do seems difficult. But, I find that once I start doing it, I realize how foolish it was of me to put it off. I’m totally working on this.

bittermarshmellos

Making Excuses is the simplest and easiest thing to do. The human brain is designed in such a way that it does not want to explore the veiled immeasurable stores of energy. In other words, it limits the human being to an extent and disallows him to extend it further. That is the reason why people love to live in the comfort and afraid of the life struggles. The brain frames the mind, then mind further frames the human and it’s a trap but of comforts.

Specifically, one of the powerful excuse is the excuse of human nature. After ten or twenty attempts, you failed and give up in something. Then the mind exhausts and give an excuse that it’s a human nature. Everyone exhausts after such efforts. So I give up. You have to write a post after returning from work at home, but unfortunately you get just half…

I got a semi-marriage proposal today.

Its not a funny story.

Sometime around 7:30pm, someone knocked on my gate. I sent my little brother to check who it was and he ran back to say that two boys were looking for me. My parents were not around at the time so I hurried to answer them and dismiss them because we all know what African Parents are capable of and I didn’t want any burnt child on my conscience.

By the time I got to the gate, my dad was just driving in. I quickly let him into the house and then snuck out to dismiss my friends. Turns out that they didn’t have any plans to go. They told me that they came to visit so that they could introduce themselves to my parents. I was so shocked because they even came with a bottle of wine. I was scared because it was late, they were of the opposite sex and they were definitely going to get me into trouble.

As they were about to leave, my dad came out and asked why we were standing outside. They quickly replied that I didn’t want them to come in. I told my dad that it was because it was late. My dad suddenly said that I was right and that they should return in the day. Immediately they left, my dad asked what the drink was for and I told him that the boys said it was for my parents. Everyone in my house started laughing and saying that I had just gotten a marriage proposal. I was so embarrassed. But then, I was also happy that my parents didn’t behave like typical African Parents because they’ve ruined so many friendships of mine that way. 😦

My dad and my brother mentioned in the story.

P.S. I love them so much.

And its 12:52am right now and sleep is still faraway.

Well, bye.

Toot Your Horn

This blog post is in response to a daily prompt. Its supposed to be for the 16th of January but, I think its perfect for today.

There are so many good things about me, I don’t even know my favorite thing about me. I mean, we can talk about my great intellectual skills, my beautiful physical appearance or my amazing sense of humor. 😂😂😂 If only we could.

Okay, enough with the elf-deprecating!!

I think my favorite thing about me is my ability to adapt effectively to every situation I find myself. I haven’t been able to figure out whether I’m an introvert or an extrovert. But, I know that I cannot solely be restricted to any group. When in social situations where the atmosphere is awkward, I’m able to dilute the awkwardness and I always come up with something generally accepted to converse on. When in opposite situations, I can be as quiet and observant as is necessary to maintain a good conversation. Then, I can also be both.

I am not only talking about social situations. When I have a task that requires optimum focus, time and concentration, I’m able to give it a 100%. But, when I’m presented with a task that isn’t challenging for me, I find a way to make it work with the least possible amount of effort. I’m good under pressure and without pressure. I’m always calm but, when the situation requires more aggressiveness and violence than is considered normal, I’m your girl.

Its like I’m a chameleon, I’m so adaptable and flexible. But, this is restricted to situations and places. Unfortunately, this does not apply to people. I’m the most rigid person I know in that area. I hardly ever change my first opinion about a person (but, I’m usually always right so that’s probably not so bad). I’m so good at work, play, conversations (when I’m in the mood), tasks, events and situations; both good and bad. Its my superpower.

I do love my self. I believe I’m an amazing person and I’m quite confident and bold. That’s why I’d never miss an opportunity to toot my horn.

LOL

Lots of love,

Ada

Happy New Year Folks

I’m dancing right now. Literally!

The first day of the year is always one of my happiest days in the year and here I am seeing yet another first day of the year. I couldn’t be anymore grateful to God.

I entered the new year (funny choice of verb right?) in church surrounded by my family and loved ones. There was so much shouting and jumping and rejoicing. Its amazing how much hope new years always bring with them. Everyone is so happy because we all believe there is a chance to make things right because of the new beginning.

All I wish for everyone this year is joy, love and peace. I’ve come to realize that those are the three most important things in life. That is, alongside money and good health 🙂 . I hope that we all have a chance to fulfill our dreams this new year.

For now, Happy New Year Everyone!!

Have Fun and be Merry!

Lots of love,

Ada

 

Finally, we get to see 2018 off

2018 is basically over.

First off, I’m grateful to God that I’m seeing the end of yet another year. I know I sound cliche but I almost died this year, so, let me.

I didn’t post a single entry this year. School was really hard this year. But, I’m not going to put all the blame on school because I know I was so lazy this year. You know, I came into the year with so many goals and plans but if I’m going to score myself on my achievements, I’d probably give myself a 2 out of 10.

That said, it doesn’t mean that my 2018 was uneventful. I mean, I lost more friends than I made this year. I’d like to believe that’s a sign that I’m growing. I also took some courses that I really loved  and they gave me a clue as to what i want to do with my life. 2018 also saw me moving from my off-campus apartment into an apartment on campus. Staying on campus definitely beats being off-campus. Not that I used to mind being off-campus. It had its perks too.

This year, I guess I was so focused on school my creative side began to feel non-existent. I know I’m not overtly creative but I have some gifts, I’m sure. Well, my efforts didn’t pay off as much as I expected. I have really come to understand what people mean when they say that the closer you are to graduation, the harder it is for your grades to come up. So, its been decided that, I’m going to focus more on enjoying the school life and reviving my creative side.

My mum and I got closer this year. I’ve always been a daddy’s girl and all that but this year my mum and I have developed this beautiful relationship that I’m absolutely loving. I believe its due to the fact that I’ve grown so much this year. So many things that used to hold my attention before don’t anymore. That just gives me the chance to focus on all the important stuff- My relationships, my goals, my studies, my health and my God.

A lot of my plans for this year didn’t work out but I know that 2019 has a lot in store for me so I’m going to give you a glimpse into the new year. I want to develop and focus on all my relationships because people keep saying that I don’t treat the people I care about properly. I know this is because they just don’t understand the way I’m wired. Sometimes, I wish I could open my heart for everyone to see what I truly feel because even though I’m blunt, people still want to believe what they want to.

Next year, I definitely want to finish all the sewing and crocheting projects I started this year. I also want to post very often. I want to write because I love writing. Sightseeing and journeying to new places is also very much on my agenda (I want to try the whole outdoor lifestyle). My studies are not going to be everything like they were this year, but, its my final year so I definitely have to put in some effort. My final goals for the next year are hair, skin and body goals. My killer version has been waiting for too long to be unveiled.

Well well, this is goodbye to 2018.

2019, I can’t wait.

 

This Too Shall Pass

Hey guys,

I’m feeling like a little motivation today. Today was such a beautiful day compared to all the days in the past month. It got me thinking. Bad things happen all the time. Some really bad things happen and you can’t even imagine how they happen or how you’re going to go through them and still be fine. But, they always pass.

I think the key is to remember that when things are good, it won’t always be that way. Make sure to cherish every moment of it. Also, when things are bad, bear in mind that it won’t always be that way. You have to take one day at a time bearing in mind that it too, will pass.

Image result for this too shall pass

So, no matter how bad things are, bear in mind that they shall pass. Until then, know that things will get better and let that make you you happy.

It will get better.

This too shall pass.

Why Do I Write?

I have tried to answer this question over and over again, but its just so difficult to. I will try to provide an answer as my first post so you guys can understand the reason for my blog.

I write because I can. I write because its difficult to express myself orally. I feel like I don’t know what I think until I read what I write. I write because it calms me down. It makes everything easier. I write because the voice inside me is not still until it speaks. I write because I want to be read. I want to be understood. I want to inspire, to motivate and to heal.

That’s it.
