Love me fiercely

I love This!!!


Love me fiercely.

Love me boldly.

Surprise me with hausa koko at work. Fight for the last piece of soft wele when you buy me waakye from Auntie Adiza, just because you know my heart will smile when my teeth sink in with ease.

Cover me with a blanket and kiss my forehead even though I am fast asleep. I may not be awake but the universe will know that this girl is loved- by you.

Hug me harder when I push you away. I know you know what my heart is really saying.

Push past the ‘it’s nothing’. Make me open up to you. See the quivering lips and the tear filled eyes. Listen. Just listen.

Tell me I am beautiful. Yes, I know you told me that yesterday and you don’t get why a woman as fearless and gorgeous as me can dare to think that she isn’t…

Walking Trees…

I had the opportunity to share something I learnt on a Whatsapp group chat… It was something I enjoyed learning and so I turned the Bible Study into a blog post. Enjoy.

Looking Deeper…

Sometime last week, my colleague at work was having an issue with a word document she had been working on for about 30 or 40 minutes (could've been more). The content had suddenly disappeared from the word document and she couldn't recover it. In an attempt to help her, I clicked on the undo button … Continue reading Looking Deeper…

Repeated Thoughts and Confessions

Since I turned 23 last week, this song has been on my mind... and I would like to share it with you... It speaks a lot to me, probably because I used to (sometimes still do) have a mindset similar to the lyrics in the first verse... This song has been a blessing in different ways, and I … Continue reading Repeated Thoughts and Confessions

may we never forget

On my way to work this morning, I could (as is usual after it rains a while,) see evidence of last night’s heavy downpour. There is a shortcut I take everyday that gets me to work in about 20 minutes and today, while on that road, I learnt something about myself that I would like … Continue reading may we never forget

100 things that make me happy

I’ve forgotten where I originally saw it, but it was somewhere in the last quarter of the year 2016.  Since then, I decided to write one as well.  Yes, it took me about 4 months to complete this list, but in my defense, I’ve not been actively trying to complete it. I had told myself … Continue reading 100 things that make me happy

The Last Daughter

The past few months have been emotional, reflective and very exciting. Usually within the last two weeks of January, I realize I’m almost a year older and start the journey of self-reflection and self assessment. Mind you, this is a totally different episode from what I go through on December 31st. This year, my self-assessment … Continue reading The Last Daughter

On the 12th Day, Love

  When I first got the idea to do the 12 days of Christmas series, I was convinced it will be a tough challenge. I’m happy to say I had no idea what I was talking about. Yes, it was a challenge, but the Grace has been sufficient and I am really excited that I … Continue reading On the 12th Day, Love
