Jubiloso Junio {Jubilant June}

Hola!


It’s the middle of the year already…like seriously, year 2017 is wrapping up rapidly.
Well, I’m thankful because God has been so faithful.

For me, June is a month of JUBILATION.

Jubilation (Noun): a feeling of great happiness and triumph.
Synonyms: euphoria, ecstasy, glee, delight, elation.

And here are some reasons why:
– About this time last year, yours sincerely completed medical school.
It was a major breakthrough and a dream come true.

– And just this month God gave my family another victory,
My dad got his PhD! 

Papi!


It took a while coming…many days, weeks, months and years longer than expected.Thank God, it has come to pass. And we trust him for other testimonies as well. Amen.

Before I continue, I have a few confessions:
In my first blogpost this year, I’d announced that I’d be doing free adverts for a few of my friends with growing businesses through this platform until the middle of the year. Unfortunately, I had to discontinue at some point, because it was challenging to create content and publish my blog posts.

To the friends I made promises to, I sincerely apologize. Please find it in your hearts to forgive me and I hope I can make it up to you all in the near future.

I also had to quit the blog challenge: 26 BLESSINGS AND COUNTING (with just 2 more posts to go), because I was overwhelmed by the way it dragged into the month of May. And there were other pending posts I had to work on, so I had to let it go.
Again I apologize for all the unkept promises.

Here’s a peep into my June (plus What’s New):
1. Meditating on: 1 John 4:11


2. Song on repeat: The Hill (Travis Greene)

3. Currently reading:
a. The book of 1 John


b. Lioness Arising (Lisa Bevere)
“Jesus stripped himself and became like us, so we could strip ourselves and become like him.”
c. Unstoppable (Christine Caine)
” The goal of the race is not to earn God’s favor, the goal of the race is to become like Christ.”
d. Passing It On (Myles Munroe)
“True leaders do not retire. They simply move to the next phase.”
e. Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Peter F Drucker)
“Successful innovators are conservative, they are not risk-focused, they are opportunity focused.”

4. Still learning:
– Spanish

– Igbo


5. Working on:


Scripture Flash Cards

I love memorizing scriptures and I keep looking for easier ways to go about it. So I finally decided to create my own Flash Cards from scratch, using cardboard paper and a variety of pens.

6. Personal development:
Another thing I’ve become really intentional about is boosting my Self Confidence. And here are a few things I’m learning to do:


i) Proper Grooming
ii) Amiable Smile
iii) Increase Competence
iv) Accept Compliments
v) Lend a helping hand

7. Driving lessons:🚘🚥🚦

#StudentDriverMood

 

I’ve been training for over 2 weeks now but I’m still a long way from becoming the confident driver I need to be. My instructor says I’m taking the training rather too seriously and I need to relax.
I feel I’m battling with a level of performance anxiety that leads me to repeat some mistakes. It’s frustrating really. I need all the courage I can get and be done with the training already. Please Pray For Me🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

8. Creative Writing: I finally registered for an online writing course I could afford, last month. It’s been really enlightening, and to be honest there’s so much to learn. I’m thankful for the opportunity to improve on my writing.

9. NewsFlash: I’ve started using a piggy bank which is another goal for this year, thanks to Dr. tamie. My bank is locally made from cheap wood and without lock/key, which means I can’t be tempted to “borrow” from it. Already I’ve saved a reasonable amount, though I don’t have a job yet. I’m pretty excited.

10. Crushing on:
My three favorite TV soaps with intriguing storylines. I watch them back to back on weekdays, thanks to Africa Magic Showcase.

Tinsel



Jemeji

BattleGround


That’s all for now.

Cheers to a great month, everyone!

DAY 25: EXCITED!!!

Welcome back.


First, let me apologize for all the missed days of this blog challenge.

Like I mentioned in one of my previous posts, this is the most challenging blog challenge I’ve undertaken in my 3 years of blogging. 

I can’t even begin to list all the issues that came up along the line, but God is FAITHFUL. 

You can tell I’m pretty excited tonight (err, actually it’s morning already). God has made one of MAJOR my goals for this year attainable. 

Here’s a snippet: 


And just in a little while, you all can have access to it. 


He sure makes dreams come true!!!

I’ve been working on this project for over 5 months and at some point I was like “who send me job?”

Writing no be beans o. Especially when you try to go all professional with honest reviews et al.

Again, God is FAITHFUL.

Today I’m thankful for MY FEGGO DIARIES, which is now READY and will be released SOON!!!!!

Like, I can already taste it…hahaha. God is great. 

See ehn, at one time, I didn’t even see myself as someone that could write a book talk less of publishing one. (Permit my Nigerian English😎🤓).

I’m grateful for everyone that encouraged and those that took part in this labor with me. My very good friend, Obinna, you’re such a blessing. My God will reward you fully.

All I can say is, IMELA.


Spanish phrase for the day:

Gracias Dio: Thank God.

DAY 22: LIFE IN PHASES

Welcome back.
About this time 4 years ago, I had just entered into med school. It was a different but remarkable experience for me.
Looking back in time, I had lots of questions; WHAT? WHEN? HOW?

My days were full of anticipations and expectations about the future.
My career and marital status were of primary concern to me…hehe.
Thank God for where he has brought me to and the values I’ve gathered over the years.
In a lot of ways, my life is better than I had imagined it would be.

“Life is better experienced than imagined.”

Today, I’m thankful for TOMORROW. I have hope about a good future because I believe God has already taken care of it.

second-chances

I came across this passage recently and I find it so comforting and reassuring.

“I am your God and will take care of you until you are old and your hair is grey.I made you and will care for you;I will give you help and rescue you”.

Isaiah 46: 3-4 GNB

3 helpful tips to embrace tomorrow:
1. Pray, don’t fret.
2. Plan by Faith.
3. Be courageous, life is an adventure.

“Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass”.

Psalm 37:5

Day 18: SILENT TEARS & WET PILLOWS

Welcome back.

I recently read an article “I’ll cry if I want to” by Les and Leslie Parrott.
And I found it really enlightening. For a chronic pillow wetter like myself, I could relate with some of the things the writer mentioned.

I cry a lot!. Yup, at least once a day on the average.

No Indictment For Ferguson Officer

For anything, everything, something or “nothing” at all…lol.

I’m not sure I’ve always been this way but in the last 5 years or so, I’ve observed how easily triggered my tear glands are.

And because it’s quite embarrassing for a cute young lady to shed tears in public over seemly trivial matters, I’ve learnt the act of covering up well…

My pillow is often my hiding place. I can’t account for the number of tear drops it holds.

tears_on_my_pillow

I won’t go into details of the reasons I cry but I’m glad to share what the scriptures say about those tears:
“You know how troubled I am; you have kept a record of my tears. Aren’t they listed in your book?”  

Ps 56:8 GNB

Today, I’m thankful that God knows about my tears.

He sees every tear I shed, hears every time I sob, and is very aware of my sorrows.

One of my go-to scriptures is:

Ps 30:5b GNB

tea-1

And more importantly, he promises to wipe away my tears finally and forever, someday.

“because the Lamb, who is in the center of the throne, will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of life-giving water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” 

Rev 7:17 GNB

So when was the last time you cried?
And what are you thankful for today?

DAY 17: PEACEFUL SLEEP.

Welcome back.

Another Friday night?
Glory to God!
 
One of my resolutions this year was to sleep earlier and longer.
img_4881img_4884
I can’t even begin to explain how almost impossible that has been.
Most days I only get to catch a few hours of intermittent sleep, because of my current schedule and daily commitments.
We all know how important a healthy sleeping habit is. And according to some experts, here are some advantages:
img_4880
Tonight I’m thankful for SLEEP, and not just in the ordinary sense of it.
I’m thankful for being able to sleep without terror or anxiety.
Once upon a time, I suffered from recurrent nightmares that a good night’s rest became such a luxury to me.
If you’ve never jumped out of bed with a start, accompanied with palpitations and a pounding headache, then consider yourself blessed.
A lack of adequate sleep tends to mess up a person’s day. You may feel detached, grumpy and unable to concentrate on your tasks. On the long run, it can stress you out.
While there are several factors that may contribute to inadequate sleep here are some helpful tips we can all use:
1. Bedtime is not phone time. Beware of addiction to social media at bedtime.
2. Avoid heavy meals before going to bed. It is true that a great meal is often a catalyst for sleep, but it’s also important to note that a heavy meal will impair your sleep onset and cut short your total sleep.
3. When you can’t sleep, pray. It works for me every time. Whenever my eyes are heavy but I’m too restless to sleep, I start to pray, whether randomly or specifically, and I’m soon asleep.
Thank God for the lovely privilege to rest the body and reset the brain, after a mentally and physically demanding day.
Even the scriptures say:
“In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭127:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬
We must do our best to ensure that each day’s work stays within that day and each new day starts afresh. That’s one principle I’m learning to work with this year, and it has really helped.
Thank God for peaceful sleep.
 
It’s time to catch some on my part…💤💤💤
 
“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.”
‭‭Psalm 4:8 NIV

DAY 13: TGIM!!!

Welcome back,
It’s the start of another working week.

Image credit: WEB

And I hope you’re EXCITED.

For a lot of people, Mondays are dreaded…it marks the beginning of another stressful week.


Most folks are like, “can I have an extra day to just chill, please?”



Haha
.
To be honest, I get that feeling sometimes too.

But today I’m thankful for Mondays and for every day I get to make a difference.

Because what I do matters and sometimes I forget that.

It’s easy to feel pretty overwhelmed by the sheer pressure and stress of work that I’m not mindful about how I’m making the world a better place.

Medicine to me, is more than a Profession,
It’s a Passion to see people live whole, mentally, socially and physically.

The Hippocratic Oath

For me having a medical degree is a Privilege I do not take for granted, and it’s humbling when patients listen to me as I share my medical knowledge with them.

I know I’m no genius, I’m who I am by God’s grace. 

Ultimately, it is God who heals.

I’m especially grateful because what was once a dream, is today a reality.

God brought me from here,

That tiny girl with a timid face
To this point…

The confident doctor with a cute smile


He makes dreams come through. 


I may not always feel like it but I’m committed to not just the Hippocratic oath but God’s word:

“Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.”
1 Corinthians 4:2 NIV

I’ve been given a trust and I must prove faithful. So help me God.

Again, thank God for Mondays.

In whatever job you do, don’t just leave with a paycheck, leave a legacy.

  • Be Passionate
  • Be Proactive 
  • Be Productive 


For you trusting God for that dream-job or the next phase of your career, don’t stop believing, don’t stop persevering…

And if you already have that dream job, remember you’re there to make a difference. 

So keep your dreams alive, the world needs it.

DAY 10: TGIF

Welcome back everyone.

And Thank God it’s Friday!!!

tgif-eunice-blogpost1

How many of us are as excited about the weekend as myself?
It’s been a pretty long week for me, and while I’m thankful for all that happened, the challenges, the lessons and the testimonies, I’m glad it’s time to just unwind and R.E.L.A.X.
i.e.

R:Reset my brain, body and spirit
E:Escape from work
L:Let go of the stress
A:Associate with friends
X:eXpress myself!

And that’s what weekends are for.

tgif-eunice-blogpost

I’m sure by now you know that acronym doesn’t exist elsewhere…😂😄

But to be honest, today I’m thankful for the opportunity to take a break when it’s needed, I’m also thankful for all the BREAKS I’ve had even when I felt I didn’t need any…
– Thank God for the Waits…they were not a waste, often my waiting time became my training time!
– Thank God for the Pauses in my Journey…some were Painful, but all were for a Purpose!
– Thank God for seemly Delays…because my delays didn’t automatically result in denials!

eunice-blogpost-2

You see, we live in an ever increasing instantly fast-paced world (forgive my grammer..lol)

Welcome to the 21st century, a time of IMs…with mails, voice and video calls, Fast foods…everything from instant coffee to instant noodles…ATMs and online stores. I wonder what else technology will bring our way, time-travel??

Don’t we just love the instant gratification we derive so often?

But God in his awesomeness sees to it that we get breaks every now and then.

He is the Good Shepherd that makes us lie down in green pastures….leads us beside the still waters and restores our soul. Ps 23:2-3.

So the next time you’re in a hurry to rush out and God sends the rain,
Or you’re late for an occasion and you get a flat tire,
Or you get stuck in traffic jam after a long and hard day at work, just keep calm and…

Relax. Reflect. Re-energise.

eunice-blogpost-3

God is never in a hurry but he is always on time.

He is faithful, he will never give you more than you can actually bear.

What are you thankful for today?

DAY 3: HE LOVES ME!

Welcome back.


“Jesus loves me this I know, for the bible tells me so…”

http://www.youtube

Children all over the world have sung this beautiful song, hundreds of time over the years but the lyrics remain relevant.
Today I’m particularly grateful for God’s love,
I know he loves the entire world but it’s extra sweet to know that he loves me as an individual.
This love is personal.


I didn’t do anything to deserve his love. In fact here’s what the scriptures say:

“It is a difficult thing for someone to die for a righteous person. It may even be that someone might dare to die for a good person. But God has shown us how much he loves us — it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!”
Romans 5:7-8 GNB

God’s love is all encompassing.
1- It is Compassionate: He hears my cry, sees my pain and knows my struggles. His love is kind and patient, very considerate of my human weaknesses.
2- It is Consistent: There are no buts or what ifs, it never falters, it never fails. He doesn’t love me less today than he did yesterday, no matter the number of times I fail God, he’s ever ready to forgive and restore me.
3- It is Complete: His love is totally SACRIFICIAL. He gave the best gift of all to mankind, his son Jesus. This kind of love is incomparable, it is AGAPE. No individual can love me this way, no one.

And you know what gives me such confidence, NOTHING can separate me from God’s love.

Absolutely Nothing.

“For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, neither the world above nor the world below — there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39 GNB

God’s love is BAE,

Before Anything/Anyone Else.


Image credit: WEB

He loves you too.
If you’ve never experienced what it feels like, the time is NOW.
No matter where else you’ve been searching for true love,
God says, come home.

So what are you thankful for today?

FERVENT FEBRUARY/ DAY 1: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!



Hola!
It’s F-e-b-r-u-a-r-y, the second month of this amazing year.

And the word that comes to my mind is:

 FERVENT (adjective)

-having or displaying a passionate intensity.

Synonyms: intense, vehement, profound, deep-seated, animated, spirited.

Such words!
I hope you are excited? Because I am.

Here’s why,

Tengo algo buenos para ti.

You don’t speak Spanish? No worries. There’s a special feature at the end of this post for you.

Today is the first day of the new month and I’m starting a Blog Challenge which I’ve tagged: 26 BLESSINGS & COUNTING!

Everyday from today, I’ll be writing on something specific I’m thankful about and I hope to be as intense as possible about it, cos that’s what this February is about. 

Have you ever tried to count your blessings? 
In a day? a week? a month? a year?

How far did you get?

Did you feel overwhelmed at some point?

That’s what this challenge is about, counting my blessings one by one. 

I looked over my life at some point this past year and I was just amazed at God’s goodness towards me.

To be honest, his blessings over my life are too numerous to count, but I will highlight the ones that became really obvious to me. 

My 26th birthday was last December (yes, I’m that young…😉) and it’s one of the few birthdays I didn’t mark in almost 10 years (simply put, there was no cake, no new hairdo, no pretty dress, no photoshoot..in short no paparazzi 🙄). 

Well, here’s my idea of a FUN birthday:
-a morning full of surprise gifts and lots of calls and messages (because I like to feel very special, who doesn’t?😆), 

-an afternoon of body massage at a spa easing off all the tension of yesteryears,

-an evening in the film house eating ice cream and popcorn. 

 😎😎😎

Anyway my last birthday was partly spent in traffic as I shuttled from one area of Ibadan to the other, trying to get a sim/data on my phone and sort out my ATM card & BVN palaver.

Still the day was made, because that evening, Momma took me to KFC where I got a pack of fries and chicken (just in case you’re wondering SVG’s KFC tastes better👏👏👏), then my sister gave me this lovely gift bag:


And later that night I got a “surprise call” from the awesome coach E (courtesy of a friend). 
Of course, I had the usual birthday calls/messages from many sweet folks both home and abroad. 
My birthday was significant because of factors like completing med school (which wasn’t beans at all) 

Cake by Adesuwa!

and reuniting with my family.

I’m grateful about all of last year, the highs and lows…it was exceptional, more than words really. On my birthday, I was not only older, I was also stronger, wiser and healthier.

Last year was a year of hard decisions and tough choices, many lessons and actions, with so much growth and change. 
God came through for me at every point where I thought I had lost it, and instead of a breakdown, I always got a breakthrough

Few years back my dream was to be married around my 26th birthday with an almost step-by-step mental picture of how glamorous that day will be. 
Well, that day has come and gone, and I’m still waiting 😉…I’m neither close to getting married nor even READY to get married…cos there’s still a lot to learn about this life. But no worries because when the time is right (and I’m ripe for marriage…😂) everything will fall into place because GOD is involved.

Dream wedding: Lots and lots of PINK🙈

Some days to my birthday, this song was dropped into my spirit:

It became my instant prayer. 

So today, I’m thankful for The Gift of Life.

A Grateful Life is a Joyful Life, a Joyful Life is a Beautiful Life.

Gen 2:7 says “God breathed into man’s nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul.” (Paraphrased). 

There’s no doubt that without being alive, I won’t even be here testifying of God’s blessings in the first place. 

Being a doctor has its perks but it’s sobering to see a patient fight for his/her life, and when it’s over, nothing can be done about it.
Sometime ago, I shared this post with my Facebook audience:


This scripture sums up my thoughts nicely:

“Praise the LORD, my soul! All my being, praise his holy name! Praise the LORD, my soul, and do not forget how kind he is. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He keeps me from the grave and blesses me with love and mercy. He fills my life with good things, so that I stay young and strong like an eagle.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭103:1-5‬ ‭GNB‬‬
So what are you thankful for today? Pls share.

So here’s the special feature to the Challenge,


I’m going to be sharing some simple Spanish phrases I’ve learnt, with you all for the next 25 days!

Don’t miss out. 

I recommend LIVE EASY ORGANISERS,

Live Easy Organisers is a Nigeria based closet revamping and professional organising company whose primary goal is to help people achieve maximized space, calmness and optimum nattiness/neatness in their homes. We help to arrange/re-arrange spaces including; kitchens, closets, home offices, pantries, garages, storage rooms, libraries etc.


It is highly important to note that we do not just clean a space, we declutter to create order.

While the business is based in Ibadan, Oyo State, we attend to clients from other nearby cities too. Farther cities attract more charges but in the end, we make every kobo count.

JOYFUL NOVEMBER!

Image credit: Swtblessings.com

Hola a todos! 

Tengo Algo Bueno Para ti

Don’t mind my SPANISH, I’ll explain later. 😊😀

I’m sooooo EXCITED and highly EXPECTANT about this Month. I remember this time last year when I did the series: A NOVEMBER TO REMEMBER. 

How time flies.

I’m thankful for the journey so far, all of God’s blessings towards me and every lesson I have learnt along the way.

 

So here are a few things that have recently happened/what-I-look-forward-to in November:

1. Scripture for the MONTH: 2 Kings 20:9a (GNB)

Yes and AMEN, because my God is a Miracle-Worker and a Promise-Keeper. I have every reason to TRUST him for what he says he will do.

I received this clear WORD in my SPIRIT on the first of this Month- GOD CAN AND GOD WILL.



And seeing how amazing he is, just a few weeks ago as I was unpacking an old box, I came across one of my prayer requests over 2 years ago:


It was such a HUGE TESTIMONY, talk about ANSWERED PRAYERS! And for me that was A SIGN that God will certainly make good every promise he made as regards the present and my future.


And that’s why it’s advisable to keep A PRAYER JOURNAL and I’m thankful for my PrayerJournal APP which I need to learn to use more often.

2. Song for the Month: WE SERVE A MIGHTY GOD (Positive Media)

Tbh, the song literally gives vibes to my body. I can’t keep still while it is playing. Btw, a Trinidadian sang it and it’s really beautiful, so Yoruba folks pls just chill. Tenkiu! 😉



3. Currently reading the following Books : 

i. The Complete Book of Questions (Gary Poole). I have answered 500 questions so far. It’s quite an enlightening read, I’ll recommend you read it with other friends. I downloaded the free PDF version. Here are the first five questions:


 and my answers to them:


ii. Me and My Big Mouth! (Joyce Meyer). I borrowed a hard copy from a friend and it’s an eye-opening book too. 


Here are some lessons I’ve gleaned:

” We are instructed to talk to and not to talk about our problems.”
” Extremes are the devil’s playground, if he cannot get a believer to totally ignore the truth, he’ll get him to be one sided and out of balance.”
“Confession is a means of speaking God’s promises into existence.”

“Thankful people are too busy being grateful for what they have, that they have no time to complain about the things they don’t have.”

“Complaining not only robs the joy of the speaker, but it also quenches the hope of the hearers.”

iii. ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING (John MacArthur). This is another deep book about what a Christian should focus on, instead of worrying endlessly. It’s really been a great resource during this phase I’m in. Here are a few lessons from the book:

” Worry is unnecessary. God doesn’t just create life, he sustains it.”

“Worry is unable to accomplish anything. You may worry yourself to death but never to a longer life.”

“To worry is needless because of God’s bounty, senseless because of his promise and useless because of its potency to achieve nothing.”

“Providing and Planning for tomorrow is taking responsibility but worrying about it, is sin.”

“The best way to avoid worrying is through prayer, followed by right thinking and right doing.”

4. Still studying the book of REVELATON with the help of Matthew Henry’s commentary.

I’m now on the 19th chapter. My favorite so far has been:


Have you let the savior in? If not, what are you waiting for? 🙂

5. Adventures: It’s been one adventure or the other in the last few weeks…I attended a mega concert of African worship, TEHILLAH AFRICANA and it was an awesome experience, followed by a Christian Talent Show that turned out unexpectedly as per the final winners, and most recently, I tried Karaoke for the very first time, with my friends. We did the song- The Heart of Worship (Matt Redman). Unfortunately, I can’t upload our video clip. Sorry😅🙈.

Lol…Worshippers in the house!!! 🙌

I’m hopeful that there will be more wonderful adventures this month. 

6. Projects: So this last month, I completed and entered two stories, for National & International prizes respectively. While I’m not counting too much on the outcome, I’m a bit hopeful that one of them at least gets picked. 

– Then I wrote about my Sojourn in SVG (Part 1) here, pls read.


– I’m still working on MY FEGGO DIARIES book. I look forward to getting it published this month. My amazing friend Z (zoehambolu@gmail.com) was kind enough to help with cover design samples for the book. You may contact him for the cover design for your book(s) at a token fee. 😉

According to my Facebook polls, this cover design wins.
I prefer this design though. What do you think?


7. Culinary Skills: My skills have remarkably improved in recent times. Yours sincerely single-handedly made Pizzas for a sale at an event. 

FINAL PRODUCT
The Process…

I recently attempted baking bread for the first time too, but sadly the yeast wasn’t enough, so it flopped badly…solid rock bread 😓. I look forward to investing more of my time this month polishing more of those skills. 

8. SPANISH 101: So yours sincerely has started learning Spanish via YouTube, thanks to a friend’s suggestion. I’m so looooooving it. I didn’t even realize how relatively easy the language is plus a huge BONUS is that my Neighbor is from Cuba. So therefore, I get to practice as often as I want to. Buenos para mí.

SPANISH 101

9. Another friend told me she was taking some free courses at Edx.org and I decided to check it out. I registered for these three courses:Think 101, Behavioral Medicine: A key to better health and Inclusive Leadership Training, and what an amazing experience it’s been. You can sign up for free here
10. A few of us volunteered at a community health fair the other Saturday, and I got to play “The Doctor” for real and no longer Student-doctor. Haha. My Medical School Journey was certainly a dream come true. 


I was able to take a quick selfie
