STOP CHASING MONEY AND START CHASING YOUR DREAMS.


It’s almost impossible to chase your dreams when you have so many responsibilities like rent, shelter and countless needs. That’s when the real dilemma begins. Our constant worry becomes how to create a sustainable income? I have hit this roadblock so many times but today I realised something very important. I am truly happy. Chasing…

PACKAGING the Lagos Style.


23:48 I just got home and I am extremely knackered, I really need a foot rub and a bear hug. I absolutely hate this weather, it’s so fucking hot! I put the AC on blast and now I have to deal with this headache from sneezing and coughing all day. Damn! This flu be messing…

STAY HUNGRY, STAY FOOLISH


  These words “Stay hungry, stay foolish” by late Steve Jobs is a recurrent part of my daily grind. It keeps me moving, never settling, never on snooze, refusing to be or seem ignorant and always looking out for my Aha! Moments. “Stay hungry, stay foolish”, is a beautiful creative gab simply reiterating and encouraging…

HATE YOUR JOB? There is HOPE!


Sure, you dread Mondays more than the Lagos traffic, and yes you need three cups of coffee before you can even allow your colleagues to so much as look at you, but that’s normal, right? Well, what if I told you Mondays aren’t the problem and Brenda from HR isn’t either. The undeniable fact is that…

BLONDE HAIR DON’T CARE.


If you told me years ago that I’d chop off my hair, I would have called you crazy. You didn’t need to tell me; I knew my dark brown hair was nothing close to stunning. It was like the cursed fig tree. It was thin but soft, and it ran down my back like a…

FORGIVE AND MOVE ON


As a champion enabler and encourager, I’ve been feeling really down in the dumps lately. I’ve been all shades of bored, constantly tired, alone, insecure, scared and uninspired by life. Going to work is a drag, I basically have to give myself motivational speeches every morning, I can’t be bothered with my appearance and I…

WILLPOWER


Being Chidiadi, is not a shallow place to write from. The need to constantly reinvent myself, sheer tenacity in the face of approaching disaster, cruel disappointments, glaring failure, truck load of baggage, unending demands, love, revenge…things fuel my desire to write. Now, I never said I wanted a smooth sailing, hell no, I will always…

LOVE


Love has been talked about and written about since the beginning of time, only a few truly grasp the true meaning of love. LOVE IS LIFE, LIFE IS LOVE. Love has a whole new meaning for me now. There will be no you without love. There was a force of attraction between two opposite genders,…

SO I HEARD.


So office politics is really intriguing. A lot of competition and hear say. So I HEARD, you know how you hear things. Well, that is how I heard o! but I won’t tell you what I heard. I really wanted to be bothered but it did not happen. So I simply asked the young lady…

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.


Hello Black purists! Long-time yeah? I have truly missed you guys and I hope you all are doing great? Well, I am just going through a reality check and this is a very short post. if anything is possible then technically everything I want should be possible right? What about all the other possibilities? The…

PHONY LAGOS LIFE.


BITCH PLEASE.   Pamela and Ejura had purchased tickets for “The Crash Concert” happening that night at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. It was one of those balmy Lagos nights only some days to Christmas. Every Tom, Dick and Harry aspired to attend exclusive shows like that perhaps to impress the media…

DO THEY COUNT?


I have often wondered why “THE LESS PRIVILEGED” feel that they are really less privileged. It bothers me that they form an association and term themselves “Destitutes” heavily relying on begging as their only means of livelihood. Isn’t there something else they can do asides begging? “DO THEY COUNT?” “DO THEY VOTE?” “DO THEY HAVE…

HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH TO TELL.


I have pondered long enough on this topic to know just exactly how it works. Each time I think about it, a wise saying always comes to mind, ‘’NOBODY KNOWS HOW THE WATER GOT INTO THE COCONUT’’. This proverb makes me smile, I really don’t know why… I guess it makes me feel like I…

THE TIDAL PUSH.


Hi guys, I know I’ve been MIA for some months now and I’m deeply sorry. This is my first blog for the month and I hope to make it as short as possible. Very often in life, we see ourselves standing at the shorelines waiting patiently for the tide to come right back. It certainly…

SIBLINGS BY AWA CHIGOZIE JEROME.


SIBLINGS Leaves that know their roots Each leaf, a route To light As each wants to fly like a kite The tender The feeble The brave All hands hug to make a fence As they tender to each other’s pains Tributaries from the hills As a heart feels what the other feels Making them glow…
