CHANGE!

If nothing else Nigerians fought gallantly to oust the ruling party for neglecting and throwing them under the bus. They felt their great grand father would be more inclined to take care of them. I don’t know at what point the slogan ‘change’ was birthed but it was hurriedly embraced by those who were getting on the train. It then resonated throughout the whole country and Nigerians began to own the idea to oust the same government they put in place. To everyone involved in the struggle, change meant different things to each class. For some it was the actual change of the party in power, for others power hand changed hands from a Southern Christian to a Northern Muslim, for some it was mass hysteria and for others it meant absolutely nothing! ...

THE DEMISE OF WOMANHOOD

As I was headed home one evening, I got pulled over by a special duty police who asked me to prove that I am the mother of the child asleep soundly. Seeing the look on my face he answered my unspoken question that as a Federal something-something he had the right to stop anyone, search their vehicles and ask any questions. Okay. I thought it was a very bad joke and I didn’t see the humour since I was tired. He wasn’t joking. He asked me to wake her up. This was unbelievable and I told him it would be cruel to wake her as it was past her bed time anyway and I should really have her in bed. He asked why I was out with her then. Shoo! I reluctantly picked and held her up for him to see her while in a bid to wake her to which she protested; he then permitted me...

CONNECTIONS

The human being has a deep need to connect with another human being on a level which varies from person to person; to know that someone cares enough to listen to you in times of sadness, need or crisis, to know that someone wants to be with you and have you in their presence, to know that you can share your deepest secrets with someone and leave it all there without fear that the knowledge would be used against you. That’s what the right connections do for you.

TO TRULY LIVE

I started this blog a year ago; the story of why will be one day heard. How time flies. It has provided me with an avenue to express my thoughts; the thoughts of others, the thoughts of people who might not be able to, or just plain shocked the thoughts of some others!*I might even have bored others* laughing. Either way, we have affected each other. That is what life is about; if not we might as well lie down and die! It also allowed me meet total strangers and forge connections. You can’t be too careful anyway with the type of connections; some are toxic, deadly, heart warming, helpful etc. It’s really up to you to know what you want. I have also had insight into people’s lives and their problems. That again is what we are here for; to lend a helping...

THE END!

Today is the 31st day of December 2011. Tomorrow we will be making mistakes as we refer to the year. I had at one point wondered what all the fuss was about changing a day! I have however become more aware as to why we can go overboard about changing a day. Everything in a human being’s life is a cycle; as such the year coming to an end is the end of a cycle. I WANT TO USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO THANK YOU ALL WHO HAVE READ MY RANTINGS, COMMENTED AND CRITICISED. I WONT BE HERE WITHOUT YOU GUYS! EVEN THOUGH, IT’S BEEN ONLY 3MONTHS, I AM TRULY BLESSED BY THE HITS TO THIS SITE. I WISH YOU THE VERY BEST IN 2012. PLEASE KEEP READING THE BLOG. NEW ADDITIONS COMING ON BOARD. This year was eventful to say the least. The world saw the Arab Spring; people coming together...
