With news about the disease popping right, left and center in local and international communication channels it’s a challenge to stay optimistic and be positive. All you need to do is to Define your reality (The Moment You Living Now). Things are shifting and you need to adjust to the change. Think beyond this edge we are facing right now. Yes…yes I know you need to take this disease serious it causes illness and death but it should not Pin you down or control you. Everything depends on what you focus on and how you respond to what you going on around you.
Follow the parameters given by medics and remember to stay safe. Those deep deep details on what’s going on around the universe you don’t need them …Limit your intake and time about the disease. I’ll suggest take a few moments and List Down the things you can do now in this season and work on them. Put your energy there…on those things.
Here are some what you can do:
1. Guard Your Heart.
This means be closer to God.God is the number one person for source of encouragement and motivation through reading your Bible and Prayers.
Our Peace is linked on what we focus on..
Isaiah 26:3-4 Lord will “Keep in him perfect peace, whose mind is stayed” upon Him because he trust him 4 In lord Jehovah there is everlasting strength.
There are many verses on Bible you can read on God promises to fire your soul up. Be encourage in God.
Joshua 1 :9Be strong and of good courage God is with you everywhere you go.
God himself told us to guard our heart because it’s the source of everything character, emotions and feeling. Proverbs 4:23 “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
2. Do one thing at a time.
With so many things to be done you need to just focus on one thing until it’s completed to head to another. Have A To do list… Tick once you are complete.
To do list make you track your progress,be organize in carrying out tasks and keep you in track not to forget things.
Depending on what’s needs to be done..You will be distracted and shiftyour focus not to what’s going on in the world but to get things done. Where your focus goes your energy follows.
3. Feed your Self with Positive feed
Like I said be on limit on Know about the disease.Get motivation and inspiration from music or videos or people like Joel Osteen,Joyce Meyer,Mike Todd,Mel Robbins the list is endless on Social Media on how to embark this disease spiritual or the level.You mind will be triggered in away and self pity will be the last thing on your mind.
4. Don’t Hold on to Past.
What’s done is done. Ignite your spirit .Yes there is delay in goals and plans, slow income generation or studies but everything happens for a reason .All working for your good. Blaming the disease will do you no good … in fact it’s blocking your mind to execute to new opportunities. Embrace the moment and live in the present.
5. Take advantage of free time.
Those things you’ve been putting aside because due to busy schedule now it’stime to catch up. Either family time.. building that bond, Self-care in terms of exercising(Body fitness) or more sleeping hours, reading books, friends send the message or call them up because it’s not wise to be visiting them now. Update your music playlist and movies .Relax
Also be your neighbor’s keeper help where you can …not everybody is in the same situation as you. Spread the love. There be so much to do in this season depending on your priority it easy to BE off reality for a while. This to shall pass nothing is permanent. Hold on to God and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He has better plans for us of Hope and Future. We are in this together.

This world is filled with beautiful and unique women. We are special in our own skin and ways .You are an exceptional woman. A wonderful woman of God .There is no one like you and there will be no one like you in this world and that’s makes you more special and unique.You are fearfully and wonderful made from our father’s own image. We… (You) are born of purpose, it’s in your D.N.A. Everything about you makes you uniquefrom your habits, perception about life, dislikes and likes, experiences ..the stuff you been through and so much more. Our uniqueness reveals our purpose or leads us to it.
You stand out by being you (Yourself).The last thing you should be is be like everyone (You can’t be everyone cup of tea).Don’t be conform to society’s expectation to fit in. God says …you are above not beneath,you are the head not the tail. Stand out and embrace You.
I’m me ..(after God transformation I do listen only to Gospel Music.. I love worship songs. The me who have two personality or what should I call it? (Help here)There isme who is a tomboy and also embraces the feminine in me. I mean tom boy comes most on dress code and feminine in appearance from makeup, haircut,doing your nails and so much staff that we as women do. The me who have learned so much the hard way. I love to do things out of service (Helping others) and some do take advantage of . I just claim my uniqueness and use it for good.
We are all unique and here are things that help us claim our uniqueness and be brave and bold enough.
Be God fearing.
To be honest all my 20 years of life this has been pulling me down.My knowledge about God was so little and my doing was not pleasing before God. But late 2018 when I accepted Jesus in truth and spirit my life changed. He gave me a new name; new life.New perception about life. Only he (God) can change a person.
We are created to make him known (God) through our purpose. You became true self only in him. Seek him and his knowledge and your life will be transformed.In Christ we have new belonging his peace is our peace, his joy is our joy, and his strength is our strength. He redeems put your trust and faith in him.
Know Your Priorities.
As a woman or anybody that is…without clear priorities it’s difficult to manage time and making progress in life. Especially with too many responsibility on our shoulder one need to know what’s important and what’s not important to be able to make a quicker decision. Priorities differ depending on time ….it might be spending more time with friends, parents, a son or daughter or commitment to business, maybe spending more time with God, self-work and growth .All about managing time and what you need to focus on.
There is difference between goals and a priority which is priorities are things you need to say yes or no to achieve that particular goal. They help in structuring a day in a meaningful way .To stick to them I’d prefer to write them down.
Mine as per May 2020 are
Family (My son and parents and siblings).
Self care and growth.
Spiritual (Spending more time with God).
Blog (From posts, growth in social media and page views, moving from a free plan to a paid plan).
As a woman you need to stand for something or you will fall For anything. Having what you stand for enables you to make decisions very quickly.(You will be like …that’s not me,that’s not how I do my things).
Knowing your worth regardless the situation you won’t feel intimidated by people opinion and their thoughts of you. Principles set foundation for everything (Your character). Principles differ from business, family and friends. Whatever empowers and represent you stand for it.
Like me …….my first principle is to give my all in everything I do. Knowing I did my best .(Dedication.Also I’m more into character and attitude (I don’t judge) ,Always be okay with my past).
Don’t complain and sweat on the small small stuff.
Few years back before I embark this journey on personal development I literally used to complain about everything and anything. Only to realize am not solving the problem am making it seems bigger than it is. Everything happening in our life is our responsibility. Your responsibility to solve, fix it or even to change it. I f It’s out of control let it go and control what you can. Complaining makes you feel stuck and things can’t get better until you make them better. I believe we attract what we think…Let the focus and energy be on positive thing, on solution and taking actions .Take multiple deep breath to cool; yourself down and calm the mind and have the ability to make better decision.
Learn new thing (s).
It’s all about stepping out of comfort zone as a woman.(“The only security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability ”Henry Ford).What are benefits of learning a new thing? Here are just a few
You get knowledge when you seek it and it’s a great way of passing time.
It reduces stress because it breaks out normal behavior pattern in life. You have new thing to think about.
Knowledge is power. Having knowledge it’s having an ability to achieve in many things.
It helps in rediscovering you. It’s fun knowing you have an extra hobby, or passion and you can do so much. Like me my new thing is what am doing now (blogging or writing content).
To be honest this world is full of fantastic skills and talents and process of discovering them is endless.Be optimistic and open minded in new skills and talent .It’s a great experience.
Pursue dreams and goals
With so much going on in our life from insecurity, inner dialogue,our association,fear and different circumstancewe tend to lose track on our dreams and goals. Find you in all the happening.
Dreams and passion can distract us from the negative events in life. You will weigh up what’s more important …your dream or drama. Like now the Pandemic of COVID19. Like me I go photo shoot and I’m lost in it. My goal is to become the best artistic female photographer in Men Portraits and show case my style around the world. The first step is taking the first step. Check my instagram account below
It helps in appreciating the experience in failure. Knowing failure it’s a just a path to success .The failure doesn’t define you as a failure .Change tactics and trust the process. Never give up on your dreams
It shows you have a purpose and direction in life. It’s all about leaning in Christ all things are possible in him and if God is before you nothing can be against you.
You can always share the struggle and accomplishment and inspire a soul.
Never fear the unknown. The opposite of fear is faith. Faith is believing to the unseen. Have that spirit of courage and hope in Christ Jesus
Dreams make life more lively I believe.

Let’s learn from each other. I’ll appreciate if you share too.
One thing to know the will of God is turn away from our ways and seek him and him only the creator of heaven and earth. Whatever we may do it doesn’t have to be necessarily evil..either help strangers, feed the needy or homeless, charity foundations.. if it doesn’t go with accordance to God’s will it’s in vain .What do I mean by that ?its accepting Jesus as our Lord and saviour and turn away from sin and then do all those things under his favour and you will be blessed.
From NKJ VERSION
Mathew 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord , Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER which is in heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day ,Lord ,Lord ,have we not prophesied in thy name ? and in thy name have cast out devils? and thy name done many wonderful works?23 An then will I profess unto them ,I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Apart from that we all can agree or I can agree that “WE PLAN AND GOD DECIDES.” He has the final answer. He knows it all. He knew you and me while we were on our mother’s womb. He is the reason for every season in our life. God is never amazed.
Everything about God is a blessing ….yes even the business failure ,loss of a job,miscarriage, betrayal from family and friends even breakup they are working for our good to direct as to our path for our purpose.You are born for a reason. Even when we don’t see it, he’s working !!if only you can do what ? BELIEVE.
It takes both Faith and Humility to seek God and his favours when we have all we ever wanted in life, also it takes Faith and Courage to seek him and his mercy and favours too when things are going astray in our life.You wonder why? It’s because the table are set before our enemies for them to see when God is blessing you. Sometimes the enemy may take control and feed our minds with so much hatred; negative thoughts and making us feel less of importance here on earth which may lead to feeling disappointed or doing so much worse things. But thank God his grace is sufficient and he is able to take us from any situation we may be at.
He (God, Lord, Jesus) is the peace in the middle of our storm.The light of the world in our darkest days. All you need to do is call upon him and pray for help and his promises. He’s faithful in his word …I assure you that .He responds and answer prayer
Inner peace in our mind and soul sometime it’s a sign it’s accordance to Gods will.He is the peace maker.I personally pray that I DO and GO according to his will in everything and every area of my entire life …(crazy) ittakes Faith my friend.
Check this out
By renew of our mind we are test to declare his will is perfect and acceptable.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good ,and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
In Lord’s Prayer Jesus taught us to say or pray …(May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven)
Mathew 6 :10 Thy kingdom come .Thy will be done in earth,as it is in heaven.
Acknowledge him and he will direct our paths.Jesus is the Truth,the Life ,the Way. Let us not lean on our own understanding.
1 John 1 :10 If we say that we have not sinned ,we make him a liar,and his word is not in us.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart: and lean not unto thine own understanding.6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
All things are working for good even in suffering ,pain it’s all accordance to his will to build us. He can never live us even when doing wrong.
Joshua 1: 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage;be not afraid,neither be thou dismayed:for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose
In Christ we are given what our heart need .THE DESIRES OF OUR HEART. If we stay by him, stick to him and pray about your plans for him to make it come true or to pass.
Psalms 37:4-5delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and he shall bring it to pass.
So much to show that God cares for us and his ready to makeour plan successful in Him by leaning on him and turning away from our old ways.Seek Jesus and there is no disappointment. It takes patient and Faith to experience Goodness of God.Jesus stronghold of our life.
Always declare ..if its accordance to your will may it prevail. Bless you.

We don’t have to treasure our mothers only on mother’s day especially on social media its a day to day activity.Lets respect our moms daily ,let her feel and know she is on our thoughts and heart always.We are born of love ;love is our mother and her love is the purest.
My favourite quote is ” Motherhood is the greatest thing and hardest thing” .By Ricki Lake.
To me being a mum is related to the quote.It was challenging and the best thing that happened to me (Life changing).I was literally with no knowledge on how to go about motherhood (I mean even holding a baby was an issue ,I never had an opportunity to hold a new born baby…. here comes Ricky my son’s name so small and cute ) and my relationship with my mum was not on good terms.Reason….. am pregnant still at her house am holding back the whereabouts of the person responsible .My reasons came from the heart because one can’t force a parent love.If he doesn’t want to take his responsibility or anything do with me or the child whybring him to the picture?To me it was of no value.
To cut story short things changed and a mother’s heart is full of forgiveness for any mistake big or small and generous on helping.I love you mum (Feeling like crying ).My mum had to accept reality the hard way and she helped and I learned so much on how to raise a kid from her from scratch …meaning washing the baby,feeding everything I KNOW NOW I OWE IT TO HER AND GOD.I always pray to God to keep her long for me so that at some point in life I make her dreams come true on things she ever wanted and be able to give it to her.The far we have come is God and we are heading far too.Glory to God.
