    Life Lessons From Gossip and to Avoid It

    Once Bitten, Twice Shy (Life Lessons About Gossip) It happened long ago that I got into trouble for being involved in gossip. Yep, you read right. I will save you details… But for a long time, the bitterness and pain of the misconstrued event were my companions. Ever since that event, if I smell gossip coming around me or my way, I find a way to either kill it, ignore it, change the narrative… And most especially not to give my opinion about the matter. I can’t imagine having to go through the trauma of my words being flipped over a thousand times against me. Now, this is why I’m…

    7 Simple Ways to Show Kindness

    I learnt a profound lesson about Kindness on Saturday, 23rd February 2019. It was the day slated for Presidential elections. As expecetd all serving Corp members get the privilege to serve with the conducting body, INEC as ad hoc staff. This opportunity is optional, I chose not to participate though a lot of people except my immediate family were aware that I was not participating. Officially, by evening… Counting of votes or collation of results should be done or ongoing. Well, just about that time, I received a phone call, from my friend… She said “Hi Tomi, are you home? Hope you are safe and back from your electoral duties”…

    My Greatest Discovery About Journaling

    For several years, I have practised the habit of journaling. It took a while then I made discovery; profound, to say the least. Only to confirm later from external sources that it was not just me, as some really cool people share the mutual experiences with me… Perhaps, it explains why I am a one who journals and advocates journaling as a productivity tool. MY DISCOVERY From time to time, I’d go back and read portions of my journals. Different reasons actually prompt this task such as boredom, a bout of writer’s block, need a little bit of motivation, ginger, or simply looking for information I must have put in…

    Terrific Life Principle to Live By

    At the family house last night, devotion was a blessing. I’d share some of the wisdom I gleaned. WWJD: What Would Jesus Do? A commonly asked question when in search of direction, insight or clarity over matters. In fact, a multitude of believers grew up using this question as a model to find answers. The minister explained that to receive insight into what Jesus would do, we have to first understand What Jesus Did while here on earth. This statement, made a resounding sense to me. Because the topic for the week is As He Walked. He being Jesus, our perfect example from the Father. As we focus on Him,…

    The Right Way to Locate your Green Pastures

    Today, I will share a secret with you. Everyone is in search of green or even greener pastures. And that’s fine. I mean who wouldn’t want to leave a pit of miry clay for his feet to be planted on the solid rock. It is a good aspiration! A great pursuit and if you find it (i.e. your green pasture), then a blessed accomplishment. Yet, as humans, we stumble on a lot of things because of our limited knowledge. We make mistakes because we assume we know exactly what we are looking for. Most commonly, we think Green pasture is first about the characteristics of a geographical location. Of course,…

    An Important Lesson About My Frame

    So, there is this life lesson I want to share… But no topic seems to fit. One way I have learnt and gleaned wisdom over the years is through life lessons. They are not just treasured but usually sink deep into my being. A couple of months ago, at the home where I live, one of my brothers said to me “Sis Tomi, go and bring out the ladder” At this time, I was by the fridge beside another brother (let’s say bro B). So I left his side towards the backyard. Then Bro B called after me ” Tomi, where are you going to?” I said “To carry the…

    Neighbor!

    Turn  to you neighbor and say neighbor should be taken seriously o… So I was at Transformation Conference hosted by Royal Diadem International Network yesterday in Abeokuta and was privileged to sit beside a beautiful young woman… At some point in the meeting, she wanted to take a selfie and guess what I did! Well, I photobombed… And she didn’t mind one bit that a complete stranger with a charming smile (winks) just photobomed That was not all, she is a daughter of Zion. Why I took such an impulsive step I don’t know o. At several points during the meeting, we were asked to face our neighbour and say…

    Fathers and Daughters

    Fathers & Daughters… Everytime the story of Amnon and Tamar is read from 2Samuel 13… a thought comes to mind about how her father {king David} permitted her to go to her brother’s place.  Now, everyone must realise that fathers must see farther. It is not a choice, it is a responsibility. Fathers must take their children further. Once more, not a choice but a responsibility. A quick question: What kind of a father are you becoming? With two illustrations, hopefully a picture of what fathering will be painted. One morning during a quick journey I sat in the Estate shuttle. I observed that on my right side a tall,…
