My father had a stroke in January 2000, that was the lowest point of his life. I saw him battle and clinge to life. It was a very trying season for the family, I remember everyone coming home and staying by his sick bed praying and hoping for his recovery. Exactly a week after the…

93 Days

I wonder if there are people like me that do not like watching true life movies – it reminds me of reality, it is a peep into other people’s life and the world we live in. 93 days is a Nigerian movie – one of the best I have seen – it tried to capture…

Little things

Recently, I have been quite overwhelmed with visions and plans that seem to be taking forever to materialise. It was like the more I achieve the farther I am far away from that ideal life. On one of “those mornings” I woke up tired, I knew I needed to talk with someone, I needed to…

Maami…

Dear Maami, Today in celebration of Mother’s day I remember you, what you represent and the life lessons you taught me. The funny thing is most of what I learnt from you were not ‘classroom’ based, I mean you did not ask me to sit down and start pouring into me. What I learnt from…

Now to deeper things – waiting to be declared cancer…

It is a great pleasure writing again after about 10 days break. This was not intentional, work was overwhelming and I was occupied all through last week. Last week was quite exceptional for me. The week started with a small party; my friend Dad’s remembrance, where I had the opportunity to catch up with some…

Rep your Brand I

I ended my last post with – Rep your brand. Sleeping over that line, I remembered a write up I wrote last year for the Marketing group I was working for. It was a note on personal branding – I consider it very relevant to “Rep your brand”…enjoy. In October 2012, I was working for…
