January 2020|| A Letter To 2020

Dear 2020,

I’m glad to finally meet you.

There are so many great things I’ve heard about you. 

I’ve been told of how special you are, not just because you’re brand new and full of potentials, but because you’re the beginning of a whole new decade. 

This for me is very significant. 

Just like they say, the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step: so does the journey of the next decade, it begins with YOU!

So I want to thank you in advance for all the exciting opportunities you’ll be bringing my way because I’m ready to embrace them.

I’m committed to learning, growing and serving with my strengths. 

I’m not going to hold myself back, because of the things I cannot yet do or the things that I don’t yet have. 

I’m going to focus on the possibilities around me, and what I can give rather than what I can get.

2020, I make a promise to you that I’ll be a better friend, lover, sister, daughter, medical practitioner, blogger, writer and any other role that will define me. So help me God. 

I know that you are my year of good things, and you are so full of glad tidings from home and abroad. So I can’t wait to do life with you, 2020.

Cheers to the beginning of a healthy, happy and fulfilling relationship.

Your new best friend,

Hello, 2020❤️



DAY 26: Papá y Mamá

Welcome back!!!

I’ve returned as promised. I hope I can finish working on all the skipped posts, before the month is over. So help me God.
This year makes my parents marriage…a whooping 30 years!!! 

A whole 3 DECADES…Glory!

That day in history!

Although the D-day is still a couple of months away, it’s not too early to give God thanks for his unending mercies over them.

-30 years of togetherness in good and bad times
-30 years of commitment and selfless dedication
-30 years of building a home and nurturing a family

Today, I’m thankful for my parents. It’s a privilege to be a product of their loins. There’s so much I’m grateful for:

The solid upbringing
Thank you for the gift of koboko*(a.k.a bla-la), following the biblical principle of not sparing the rod at the expense of the child (Proverbs 13:24), evidently this particular child didn’t spoil…lol. And there was plenty of pampering alongside the discipline too. All in all, kudos to you guys!

The unprejudiced investment in my education
Thank you for believing in training the girl-child as well as the boy-child. I appreciate all your toils over the past two decades in helping me achieve this level education. Thanks for the many times you had to go without, to ensure I had everything I needed to succeed. I’m forever grateful.

The spiritual instructions
For you, Jesus is the first, the last and all that is in between. I’m particularly thankful to you for the support you’ve always given me to serve in God’s vineyard…from secondary school days uptil medical school, your encouragement did not waiver, for you serving Jesus is always the right thing to do.

Easy going daddy, always excited about my success

Shebi we look alike?🤓

Thank you for believing in me everytime

Ever caring mummy, going the extra mile to see me happy
Yes ke, we did combo sef..lol😉
Abiyamo tooto, e ma jeun omo pe.
Happy PEARL Anniversary, Papá y Mamá
3 decades STRONG!

Cheers to many more years in sound health, peace and fruitfulness!

I celebrate you.

Spanish phrase for the day: LO SIENTO- I’m sorry!



Welcome back.

I didn’t want to write today.

I didn’t feel like writing.

I didn’t know what to write by the way. Or so I thought.

So I waited till the last moment possible, looking for something, anything, no matter how little, to write. For my writing is a gift, a gift from me to you. And I didn’t want you to miss the gift for today. Of all the privileges God has given to me, this is the best I can offer to you, at least for now. You probably know why I write already, yeah, I wrote that here.

I still don’t know what to write, but I’m writing. I think that is a good place to start. You see, in deciding what to write, I browsed through my notes and stumbled upon this quote shared by a Coach, Friend, and Christian brother, AbiodunBEYOND, in a Leadership course he coordinated earlier this year:

Well, thank God he shared that quote when he did, and thank God I came across it again, just when I needed it. 

So I’m still writing, giving you a glimpse of my mind, of its fears and cares. Truth be told, writing makes the writer vulnerable to both personal and public criticisms. Well, acting, singing, speaking and the rest do the same too. I’ll keep writing anyway. 

This evening, I had a conversation with my best friend, who is a Graduate student. Among other things, I encouraged her not to quit her program, despite the challenges she has recently been faced with. 

The world as we know it will only listen to the difficulties you encountered in your journey, when your SUCCESS STORY is complete. People do not want excuses where performance is expected. We are familiar with the likes of Nelson Mandela, Ben Carson, and Bill Gates, today because of a common factor- PERSEVERANCE. 

And because of that same factor, Today’s post didn’t end up BLANK.

So DON’T give up, Friend. You too CAN.

Thank you for reading.
