:) :)

So today is exactly 1 year since i became an active citizen of blogville and it is also an exact week before i officially hit quarter century. oooh yea!!

I would really like to do a proper 1 year on blogville reflection/ shout out post but its late so uhm i guess that will happen this weekend...

Also, two ( well 3 if i count myself) of my most favoritest people in the world also have birthdays next week. I love you guys and thanks for being in my life.

so i am off to bed... expect a proper post this weekend. i think i am still tired from last weekend( which will officially go down as the busiest weekend of my life so far)

but a crushed spirit dries up the bones

if it isn't love...

Small break in transmission.I just had to share what has kept me from loosing my mind these past few days. So you know how folk in naija be hooking you up with "prospects" without your approval? well my friend had that happen to her. Anyhoo she decides to be nice and let the bloke down easy. this is what ensued.

Hello ,
I hope you are doing great.
Well, I can't pick up my phone cos i don't have mins on it except if you call me weekends or after 9pm my time. As for every other thing we have talked about, i don't see this working out, so I say you move on and find someone else back home. I can't seem to understand why you would like to date someone who is far off & haven't seen, when I'm very sure that there are good ladies there too.
As for me, i'd prefer to date someone here too. Not that i don't trust people back home but at least i can get to know the person better.
i really don't understand, i'm i supposed to say "yes", probably just see you once if i come home, approve and get married? i'm not sure how that works.

Not to sound rude in anyway, but hopefully you understand too and move on with your life.

Hello my dear

How are you and your groove over there in US, hope fine. I got your mail and i believed that we are matching in the same path,what differentiate the kingdom is the word "DISTANCE" yea distance means much in thing like this but giving a room for an ecstasy is another cool chance for us to shuttle this relationship out.

Yes we talk and mail but have not seen each other,thats give us the ego to say to each other you are welcome to my life then feelings and planning follows it. Just accept then lets move round the orbit to find the solution for distance which both us we agree on. my words to you might sound abhor to you but my dear thats how i feel, i will love you to come into my life thats my heart desire.

How i wish my dream will be as acacia where roses and warmth will grow between us. Dear i know that the journey of couples is not a day talk but please put it in your memory you will find out it can work out and i know here in nigeria girls are many but few are choosen likewise there in the states.lets develop the emotional side of it and leave the rest for God. I am not trying put you in self indulgence but think about everything and put my feelings too. what i owe now is always praying to God to help us, guide you and give you joy ok. Have a cool stay .....Dear permit me to say that i cherished you.

P.S: So is it bad that every time i get stressed i go back to read his email just to get a good laugh?

P.P.S: Vera and Mgbeks, please show me the way to super cool blog templates na?

The Death Process

This is my 50th post and in a few weeks the blog will be a year old. Woot! Woot!!, now I realize that means I averaged one post per week but that is besides the point. I always come back and that’s what matters. right?

When we were younger my mum would have this random house cleaning/ decluttering episodes and she would throw/give out a whole bunch of stuff.. even things we STILL wanted. It used to make me really mad and one day I was venting to my uncle and he replied. “That’s good, that way you have room for new things” that was more than 10 years ago and I still remember what he said because it is turning out to be so true.

For growth to occur there has to be some kind of death. It’s sort of like a relationship unless you let go of the crappy bf/gf the chances of finding the right person are pretty slim.

The problem is that I am a hogger. I don’t like to let go, heck I am not even sure I know how to, so every once in a while my Father has to step in and snatch away the old things. I usually never understand the whys until I get the new stuff and I realize that there is no way I could have handled the new if the old wasn’t taken away.

This is dedicated to any hoggers like me out there. Embrace the death process. Let go! Appreciate the gift of goodbye and make space for the new because there is soo much more out there.

If he does, the new wine will burst the skins,

the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.

No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins.
