    Love on the road

    That morning was very cold. Rain fell the previous night and it kept me on my bed. The weather brought that sensation that makes you crave for more sleep even when it’s bright outside. My mother stormed my room and then expectedly slapped my butt. She was very fond of that. She usually tells me that my butt was too big for me. For the most part, she recounts how she had a flat ass-cheek at my age, and perhaps I had inherited mine from her mother, my grandmother. I couldn’t really fathom why she’d complain about it like it was a problem for anyone. Even if it was, it’d…

    Love yourself first

      “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” – Buddha YEAH! you read that right. Love yourself first before you love somebody else. Loving yourself is very essential to be a better person. When you claim to love yourself, it means that you accept and respect who and what you are. True self-love is an unconditional feeling of love, and accepting yourself with all your strength and ignoring your flaws. Have you ever wondered if someone ask you about things you love and how long it will actually take you to mention yourself? Some things may be equally essential but nothing is…

    I want you to be happier

    Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower. -John Harrigan Happiness should be a daily goal for every one of us. Happiness shouldn’t just be a destination to reach in the future. Some of us have made up our mind to find happiness only when we achieve something either materials or just mere events such as; Buying that Benz that you are craving for, Living in your dream mansion, Travelling to Dubai for summer vacation and many others. We decide to lie to ourselves about a better tomorrow that ain’t certain and nobody knows really exists. This doesn’t mean one shouldn’t have wonderful dreams but it shouldn’t be…

    The rats and diamond

    A rat once swallowed a diamond and the owner of the diamond contracted a man to kill the rat. When the rat hunter arrived to kill the rat, there were more than a thousand rats bunched up, and one sitting by itself away from the pack. He killed the one sitting by itself and that was the exact one that had swallowed the diamond. The owner of the diamond was amazed and asked the hunter, “How did you know it was that rat that swallowed my diamond?” “Very easy,” the hunter smiled. “When idiots get rich they don’t mix with old friends.” This post is not all  about tales of…

    A night to remember

    An unsettling feeling began swelling inside me. It seems there was something wrong in the — but I couldn’t quite tell where or what it was. I felt as though I had entered a house with the gas stove left on; the atmosphere was dense and strange, though apparently invisible to my eyes. I just received an alert on my phone and it was debit. I’ve been in the hostel since morning after I returned back from the class. Suddenly, I realized what it was: I’ve just been defrauded. My heart started pounding at an increasingly rapid pace. I checked my watch, almost noon. Who could have done this? My…

    Reasons why you’re unhappy

    Reasons why you’re unhappy. I sometimes met with some certain people who usually complain about how life isn’t as fulfilling as it used to be. They’re utterly unsatisfied with the way things are. Some certain people tend to fall into sadness as a result of things that goes in their lives. It is expected to experience this state of emotion sometimes as a result of response to adverse life events which include loss of loved ones, major life changes, pain, and disappointment. In most cases, the sad feelings resolve as you come to terms with the changes in your life but some certain people couldnt figure out what exaclty brought…

    When cousins dont think.

                        When Cousins Don’t Think! Once, the Gorilla and the Chimpanzee met up with each other on a long, hot trail. They had no where to go in particular, though they had to go until they could find somewhere they could be safe. Hunters were harassing them, bush doctors wanted parts of their bodies for medicine and concoctions. Scientists needed to dissect their bodies for research and experiments. It was becoming a very unbearable existence for them…but, soon they reached a well. Both of them were very thirsty, and were dying for at least a drop of water. Both of them…

    Do it now, Not tomorrow.

    “Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay.” -Simone de Beauvoir We all hope and dream. We all have aspirations whether they are little or big. Do you also agree most of us have a goal list but the problem that usually arise is that we’re always thinking, I’ll get to it later; I’ve got time. There’s this task that you’ve been skipping and avoiding since days, or maybe, weeks? Yes? Okay, I know this has filled your imagination and you usually ask yourself when you’d be able to complete most of those activities and achieve your life goals but it hasn’t happened yet. The…

    BATTLING WITH MY FEARS

    BATTLING WITH MY FEARS   It is 4:30pm. You sit on your bed, yoga style. The other day, you had read in a blog post how this sitting position was the best for effective writing especially when one’s muse was being toyed with by their village people. That is exactly your present predicament and you’ve been sitting in this position for God knows how long. Your phone lay on your bed, open to a blank page on WPS Office. The cursor blinks on desperately, yearning to be utilized. Your head feels woolly. Many ideas swim inside it but none seem worth writing about. You want to write about your hard-to-please Creative…
