Welcome to JULY.
What’s the rush though?
2017 is going really FAST *sniffs*
And for some reasons I have started to feel like I’m actually older than I really am. 😒😟
Maybe my staying mostly indoors has something to do with it, because thanks to MDCN, yours sincerely has been living a pretty domesticated life lately.
Like I’m almost always home all day, everyday, and I have actually started reading articles for stay-at-home mums (just because), only that I’m neither married nor with kids yet. Sigh.
So my domestic roles cut across being a personal trainer to my parents (in our amateur morning stretching exercises 😂😂😂),
to helping to plan and prepare Family Meals (because I love Food Time Tables),
and also playing the House Doctor, especially prescribing antimalarial drugs (because if it looks like and feels like Malaria, it’s likely Malaria, right? I know WHO now recommends testing before treating Malaria, but with the ceaseless rainfall and relentless mosquitoes at home, there’s no time to waste time).
Just so you know, in the last week of June, I was also a victim to what I suspected to be Malaria and it rendered me almost useless to myself and those around me. I stayed in bed for days and even suffered a bout of depression (not clinically ofcourse). It was while recuperating that I wrote this poem LIFE 101.
Sickness of any type is especially frustrating for me because not only is it distressing, I also find it depressing and distracting. Bottomline is I don’t like to be sick, because it puts me out of CONTROL. Medical doctor or not, Sickness is Terrible!
Anyway, I’m so thankful I’m back on my two feet without having to go into the Emergency room. Hallelujah!
Now let’s roll into the JULY VIBES!
1. Song on replay:
Love me too much (Travis Greene)
2. Scripture for the month:
This is a much needed WORD for my season of wait!
3. Currently reading:
– The four loves (C.S Lewis)
“Friendship can be a school of virtue but also a school of vice. It makes good men better and bad men worse.”
– Lioness Arising (Lisa Bevere)
“If God has spoken, believe him. Go where he asks you to go; listen to what he says to you. Follow this lion as he leads, and trust the “knowing” even when others might not understand.”
– Unstoppable (Christine Caine)
“Faith is always one generation from extinction and we are the ones entrusted with carrying the baton for this generation and handing it off to the next.”
– Innovation & Entrepreneurship (Peter F Drucker)
“Innovators should not be rewarded for failure but certainly not to be penalized for trying. An innovation is expected to start small but end big.”
– Passing It On (Myles Munroe)
“Mentoring has more to do with association than with instruction.”
– The Bible: The book of 2 Kings
– The 30-31-30 Devotional by Eziaha.
In one word, the devotional is DEEP! You need to read it to understand what I’m saying. God bless Coach E as always! Pls download the FAB E Reader App here and look up the devotional too, even if it’s the free version.
4. Still learning:
Spanish and Igbo languages.
5. Just completed:
Among other things the course has helped me to pay a closer attention not only to what I write, but also how I write. Another class is coming up soon, so if you’re interested you can check out this link.
6. Recent Adventure:
So I bashed my Dad’s car while driving into our compound one sunny afternoon 😂😂😂
insert *Tony Tetuila’s You don hit my car*
Thank God nothing was broken and no one was injured! My parents were kind enough to laugh it off, and everyone began to recount their bashing experiences too…lol
7. New Muse
I started keeping a Goodness Journal from the first of July.
This beautiful journal is a gift from my mum and I love how colorful it looks.
So basically it’s like A Book Of Remembrance for every good deed done (or kind word spoken) to me each day, whether by a loved one or a total stranger. The idea is to be able to reflect on these, when things get a little bit tough and also to keep my benefactors in prayers. So for every good thing you do to me this month, I get to treasure it forever! So what are you waiting for?😜😅
