Ovie's voice and a cup of gratitude!

Have you ever had that OMG! moment when something just clicks in your head, and gets you in deep thoughts, questioning a whole lot of things.
Well..... if you haven't, you need to pay more attention to your inner voice.
That moment for me was after watching "ovie's voice".
 Not a lot of movies get me emotional......oh well...... Indian movies do.
lawwddd!!! I could cry buckets watching them.
But I had a sort of epiphany after that movie. I thought to myself, I can see, talk, hear, walk and I still find a dozen things to complain about. I still have requests tabled before God each time I pray. Whereas there are people who cannot see, hear yet they wake up everyday and live their lives normally,they have not killed themselves. How many times have you been grateful for the free gifts that though seem little but are really huge and important, like the gift of sight, hearing, breathing and walking without?
How often do we take a break from wealth chasing wealth, making demands, complaining of what we don't have, to appreciate the things in life we have gotten freely?
You see, while you are worried about not having a lot of shoes someone somewhere just wants to be able to walk...!!!!Don't get me wrong Its noble to be ambitious, dream big and spoil yourself every now and then.
What am saying in a nutshell  my darlings is, it won't hurt if we are more grateful and appreciative of the little gems in life that make it beautiful and make our dreams achievable.
I can say without a doubt that I experienced a new kind of peace and joy that come with being appreciative even when a thousand things are going wrong when I started practising this principle.
It keeps your mind, soul and body in a healthy place until you work things out.
I pray the lord will strengthen those around us with physical challenges and put in our hearts the grace to be grateful for what we have.

If life had a PAUSE....

Happy "not workers day" darlings!I see you re-reading and wondering to yourself what the hell does that mean?
 I know that's not a real thing, but hey! any reason to be happy is good enough ain't it?
To think that I woke up this morning not in a hurry to get ready for work is pure joy!
......In my mind,am practicising for when I become  the CEO of a multinational company Chai!!! I can go to bed and wake up whenever I like without fear of getting a query.....
hmmmmm!!!! *jots down an important prayer point*
 Can I get an Amen somebody!

Am on leave but technically i still have a ton of things to do.
 I finally got a website and soon we will be upgrading from blogspot to our very own personalised  site. Yayyyyy!!!!!!
that's growth right there and am grateful. To think that this started as a joke but has enjoyed  tremendous growth over the last 6 months is a blessing.

Am taking a leap of faith today to register for driving lessons; oh yes!! Faith without work is eye service!
That's my own way of saying :

Lord I am ready for an upgrade oooo my miracle car locate me!!!!!!!
we have trekked enough under the rain,under the sun even under the thunder sef
Its time for divine compensation.

If I were to make one wish now it would be that life had a PAUSE button so I can really enjoy this one week I have to pay attention to me.
Now that I have this chinkini ( small) break see how the day is running faster than Usain Bolt.
Someone cannot even close her eye in peace and the next thing its 10 hours later.

 How is your day going? Great i hope but if you are having a bad day just remember its just that- a bad day, not a bad life!
Many people will give an arm to be where you are today so be grateful and make the best of it, for only so will you receive bigger and better blessings.

Guys get in here! 5 things to avoid when meeting her family

Happy workers day to every hardworking Nigerian may the lord bless the works of our hands.
Remember when I did the post on meeting the in-laws for the first time for the ladies Here
Well to be fair I decided to do a long overdue sequelae for the guys ( better late than never right?)
It's much easier for a guy to impress his prospective in-law than for a lady to do so  but even so making a good impression and winning her parents heart is a very big plus 
Basically this post will be to highlight the things you should avoid when you meet the parents of your girlfriend/fiancée.

1. You see those pants with lots of pockets and zips that you like to sag and feel like a gangstar with.....??? Oh yeah ! You know the one ...... Trash it!!!
No family wants to give their daughter to a man they ain't sure of.
A simple t-shirt decent pants and sneaks will do if  you are going for a casual look

2. Cut down the Public display of affection. Its good you let them know just how much you love their daughter but they don't want to glimpse you two sucking face and groping each other so until you are out of the house keep all the mushiness away.

3.Don't come empty handed
This is a non negotiable part of etiquette 101. Showing up empty handed you might as well have a tag on your forehead saying  hey! I have no respect for you, I am  ill mannered, please think the worst of me.
A bottle of fruit wine, a loaf of bread to say the least will go a long way.

4.It is not all about you
lots of guys are guilty of this maybe out of nervousness or sheer arrogance; they spend a better part of the meeting talking about themselves , their achievements and how well they are doing maybe in a bid to portray themselves as hardworking and a good prospect, this pisses even the most arrogant person off.
While they will want to get to know you don't just go on and on about yourself. Answer  specific questions thrown at you, be modest and ask about your host too.

5.Don't leave your manners at home
In at much as you should feel at home don't go picking your nose at the table,chewing with your mouth open,sitting with your legs on the table, be in your best behaviour and dont forget to thank your host.
