Don't be a stumbling block to the message you preach

"Sometimes we have to stop doing the things we love to do on a normal day. Sometimes, we have to change because we dont want our attitudes/character to be a stumbling block. Its not a pretence change though, its a transformation, a conviction, a sacrifice from deep within because we really want something to work out." - Peaceitimi
○1 Corinthians 9:19-23 MSG
Even though I am free of the demands and expectations of everyone, I have voluntarily become a servant to any and all in order to reach a wide range of people: religious, nonreligious, meticulous moralists, loose-living immoralists, the defeated, the demoralized—whoever. I didn’t take on their way of life. I kept my bearings in Christ—but I entered their world and tried to experience things from their point of view. I’ve become just about every sort of servant there is in my attempts to lead those I meet into a God-saved life. I did all this because of the Message. I didn’t just want to talk about it; I wanted to be in on it!○

I was reading a blog ( and I saw this post that was majorly a poem written and performed by Gary Turk. It really struck me and so I decided to share the video link and the poem lyrics with you guys. Enjoy and Thank me later.


Video link -->


“I have 422 friends, yet I am lonely.
I speak to all of them everyday, yet none of them really know me.
The problem I have sits in the spaces between, looking into their eyes, or at a name on a screen.
I took a step back, and opened my eyes,
I looked around, and then realised that this media we call social, is anything but
when we open our computers, and it’s our doors we shut.

All this technology we have, it’s just an illusion, of community, companionship, a sense of inclusion
yet when you step away from this device of delusion,
you awaken to see, a world of confusion.

My rendezvous last week

Last week was one of my most awesomest week ever. I made loads of new friends - cool, smart, creative friends #nojokes, I learnt sooooo much about so many things - sooooo many things, and I had serious fun (no wonder I couldn't bring myself to sit, focus, think and write a blog post #myapologies). I could gist you guys about my week but then I'm trying to keep my personal life as personal as blogly possible *hehe* but still I am going to fulfil my promise as my blog caption says and tell you guys some lessons I picked up last week.
So sit back, relax and read away...

The moments that changed my life.

I don't know the exact moment my life changed. Was it when I was at home giving my colleagues ideas on some ish? Or was it when I became the mediator between my colleagues and our boss? Or was it when I woke up that monday morning and realised,  I was really at the summit? Or was when it i was chosen to lead that little group even though i protested against it? Maybe it was when I unconsciously took up the responsibility to get my group (go team Red, hehe) in place so we could get to work or maybe it was when my group officially made me the leader or maybe it was when I got up on stage and began the presentation or maybe it was day that, over a year ago at a seminar where I met Alex and he gave him his card or just maybe it the day I finally put all efforts in sending my application or maybe it was that day over two years ago when I met Ejay because but for Ejay I wouldnt have gone for the meeting point and i wouldnt have met alex and I probably wouldn't be writing this.

National issues; Boko Haram, Chibok girls and now Ebola virus

I was at a branding seminar today when in the midst of it, my mind wandered as usual. (I dont know o, but my mind is a wandering expert. It can touch a million things - be it, events, memories, issues, book, video, ideas, basically anything -  in a millisecond before settling on a particular topic to brood on.  Its just crasy like that. Anyway back to the subject at hand). So, my blessed mind wandered and settled on Chibok girls (maybe because one of the speakers referred to them in her presentation) and then it moved to Bokoharam and finally the ebola issue.
Majorly, I just thought of how alot of us are indifferent to most of our national issues and I think its mainly because these incidents haven't gotten close to us yet.

Uhmm, allow me use my experiences to portray my point.
