Palm sunday marks the end of lent and the beginning of holy week leading up to easter. It commemorates the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. 👑
It's a perfect time for cleaning out and refueling our spiritual reservoir and opening our hearts to God for revival and renewal. ⛪
I used to think I had it all in control until a rude awakening last week jolted me back to reality.
You see, I will describe myself as a perfectionist, I freak out when things don't go as they ought to. Now if you are like me you need God more than you need air.
When am in a good place spiritually I have peace of mind and when challenges come I would put my knees down, pray about them and let go.
Last week I had problems mobilizing for NYSC now it was so serious that if things didn't work out I would have to wait till November........NOVEMBER!!!!! (what would I be doing till then?......the devil is a liar!) All this was because I hadn't gotten my regularised number from jamb and their server was down.
My first instinct wasto make calls. I called my school, I called jamb office, I did every other thing but pray.
When all seemed futile I went on my knees to pray I couldn't even make a sentence without breaking down.
What happened to me?
I used to pray
What happened to my faith?
In my mind, I knew God loves me and I believe in him, bt that's just not enough. Just like you need fuel to move around in your car you need prayer to fuel your spiritual strength.
In all of these I learnt that everytime I seek God only after trying things my way, I undermine his abilities. God should always be number one in our lives. He is able an willing to do all things for us. We need God more and more, and building a strong faith that brings peace of mind requires conscious effort and quiet time with God.
Have a Blessed Sunday.

Happy Valentine's Day darlings !
I know it's 3 days late but hey!!!!! everyday is a good day to love and be loved.
Speaking about love and what follows it reminds me of a wedding I attended some time ago in Abuja.
I had gotten there and realised that there were two couples to be wedded at the same time!
Now they were both really beautiful but I couldn't help the temptation of comparing one thing or another. I know it's not a big deal for some people but am I the only one who thinks that it should be all about the BRIDE?
the bride should not have to share her spotlight with anyone just for that day.
I believe that your wedding day should be all about you. Nobody is allowed to be finer or better dressed than you..... heck! If you are slaying better than me on my wedding day you just might get bounced ( just kidding)
This is why I don't understand joint weddings or mass weddings.
I know it's just for a few hours, and the marriage is more important than the wedding but honestly do you find yourself comparing which bride looks prettier? Which dress looks better or which groom looks hotter?
Would you mind sharing your wedding with another couple?

grateful to be alive and appreciative of the cold weather I have been hating on.
Am spending time understanding rather than complaining.
One thing I have learnt so far in life..... Well still learning because
"man's not hot but man's sturborn sometimes" is knowing when to hold on and when to Let go!😎
We are not talking about letting go of your dreams and aspirations Hell no! Your dreams are valid! but thrashing out all the baggage, hurt, resentment and habits that won't let you get to your peak faster.
Do you regret something that happened in the past? Maybe you blame yourself or someone else for what they did wrong to you.
Is it a rocky relationship or pieces of it you can't let go?
Family issues that have really affected you?
Goals and targets you didn't meet up with and can't stop hating yourself for it?
Co-workers that have done you wrong?
Mistakes you made in your past that you are still upset about?
It could even be hairstylist who ruined your hair after spending all that money to look nice ( am I still mad?..... lol!!!!
You are human and it's understandable. It's OK to be vulnerable to feel bad and to regret but because you live for a higher purpose and your happiness matters, it's time to wipe that memory and toss each inch of regret and anger back to devil and take back your power.💪
Let it go! Let it go! Let it go! There is no one handing out an award for who can hold on to negativity the longest.
Start today on a fresh page, and open your mind to the blessings that come with freedom.
I will let it go if you are not patient enough to read up till this point.😀
But if you did? You are the real deal!🙌
I hope this makes a meaningful impact on your life today.🙏

As the days go by, I tick off each day remaining to round off my programme, with enthusiasm.
Dont get me wrong housemanship has been really great!! The clinical skills acquired, experiences, fun times and of course the alerts (my favourite part)😀😀😀😀 have been amazing. But everything that has a beginning surely must have an end.
When I came into the practice I was "as green as they come.
I couldn't even take blood sample without my heart racing and my hands shaking, but look at me now 😀😀😀😀.
I have seen the good, bad and ugly parts of the profession. I have had really inspiring and wonderday days and I have also had really bad days.
But in summary It's not as rosy as it seems but I know I made the right decision when I chose this path.
Aside the clinical experience, this programme afforded me, it helped me see life from a different perspective.
You see, I didn't really like living in the east and it was boring living far away from the city centre in a village far from civilization (no offence) My initial impression of the easterners here is that they were mean and sexist. (dunno if that has changed much now) It's difficult to miss how the males are priotized over the females.
It exposed me to lots of characters I had to put up with everyday. The nice and the meanies. But hey! that's life. It's a sandwich of all varieties of people and learning to thrive in the midst of all the shenanigans makes you a well rounded individual and a winner👑.
I learnt some things about myself too, took note of what I had to change or work on like being more interactive and sociable (problems of an introvert) learnt where to draw the line between being respectful and being stupid.
I learnt the value of patience. Patience in dealing with people, patience with yourself, patience with God. It's a key ingredient to living a happier life.
It was also a character building camp for me as well.
The trying times have shown me that I am stronger than I am, I do appreciate good health now, more than I used to.It's emotional for me at this point because I can remember vividly how this blog was conceived.
I was at home for 8months waiting for housemanship,
I remember how I cried, prayed and waited for my name to appear on the list.
I was also terribly bored.
I needed an outlet to let out my thoughts and keep my mind busy.
One evening I said you know what? It's time and then I wrote my very first article! OK not to derail
I want to appreciate you guys clicking on my site and reading my post. You guys keep me motivated. The views and comment keep me going.
I have made friends in this blog. Slot of people have reached out to me I love you all please keep them coming. We are here for each other.
This space means a lot more than you think. Blogging, even though it's hectic combining it with my day job, is a stress reliever for me. I will try to keep the blog as interesting, inspiring, fun and nformative as possible.

Have you wondered why you keep having recurrent infections even though your hygiene is impeccable? Grab a seat you are about to find out.
You may have your bath couple of times a day, enjoy a closet full of expensive Victoria Secret or slim girl lingerie and use the best products money can buy. Hun, newsflash! you might just be doing the right things but doing them the wrong way.
Here are simple practices we can incorporate to save us the embarrassment and make this a thing of the past. 😀
1. When it comes to your lingerie selection, 👙your vagina has a preference and that's cotton!
This is because it allows air entry to your lady part and absorbs moisture.
You see those "wash and wear" silk and nylon panties, it's time to ditch them.
2. Say NO! to douching
All you need is warm water to wash down there. If you must use soap, make sure it's mild organic soap/wash to avoid altering the pH balance in the vagina, leaving it open to infections. I will do a review on some good products you can use soon.
3.Double up on vaginal friendly diet and that includes yoghurt.
4. Wipe the right way
There is a right way to wipe after emptying your bowel and that's from front to back. Wiping from back to front can sweep harmful organisms from the anus into the vagina and we don't want that.
5. Undies should be washed and dried out in the open where they can get sunlight. Drying them in the bathroom or other enclossed space encourages bacteria to rest on them and thrive. But the heat from the sun clears any such pathogen. If possible, iron them before use too.
6. During menstruation, tampons shouldn't stay in for too long.
Change them every 3 to 4 hours . The more time the menstrual blood stays in contact with the vagina the higher the chances of coming down with a vaginal infection.
6.If you start experiencing foul-smelling discharge from the vagina, itching, bleeding not related to menstrual period. Do not self medicate, visit your doctor right away.
