    Omolabake Episode 13

    Episode 13 Morinsola had texted her Pastor’s wife that she needed to meet with her before their usual Thursday fellowship at Maggies. So she had replied that they could meet on Tuesday at her office. They sat in her teal green oval office. “Tell me everything, Sister Morin?” She had recounted the events of Sunday to the woman. “After my secondary school education. I enrolled at a coaching center in preparation of my JAMB exams.” She stood up from the chair. “I was sixteen and a beauty. My mother always said I was a carbon copy of her mother who was an Igbo woman.” “I was the envy of all…

    Omolabake Episode 12

    Episode 12 Morinsola sat by Lekan on the large cane chair in the veranda. She wiped off the fading red paint on her toe nails with nail vanish “She decided to drive herself. Ever since Gideon left, she wouldn’t let anyone drive her. And trust me, not even her father can convince her otherwise.” “I see” Lekan continued his candy crush game. He echoed the sound as his swiped his striped candy “Tasty, the boy must be special” “Special? He certainly is! She was human while he was around. Now, she hardly even notices people in the office.” She brought out two shades of blue paint from her paint bag.…

    Peace

    When a Brother of mine sent this picture, he asked what I’d caption it. It wasn’t till the next day thoughts and feelings of Peace flooded my heart. The picture instantly came to mind.  It started with the picture giving a kind of representation of  “Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.” (Psalm 124:7) in my heart. You know that phrase, “That was close” It can almost explain a dimension of peace…. Like “that was close but not close enough to harm me.” Peace, is not a state of inaction (not doing anything)… But a…

    Imagination

    Imagine life without this Nation, what would we do without you? An utopia of some sorts! The very place of comfort yet would never leave man be.  Always scheming, at work…  Cheers to the times I doubted possibilities of what I thought because but you kept showing with swift, meticulous slides how it shall come to be. You kept saying “See… It’s so easy.” You give direction to my perspiration. I mean what can I do without  you really? Your colourful existence gives life to my thoughts, and here I reaffirm that it is true what they say… Every innovation/creation was made twice; first in the imagination and second in…

    Conversation

    As long as we live, we would always have to talk…  Conversations are pretty cool (depends on the individual parameters). When conversations lack direction and depth, the relationship soon melts away. (Could be a good thing or bad thing depending on the relationship and yes, there are solutions to better conversations). Few things to note: 1. Let your conversations be seasoned with salt.  2. Be careful the slangs you take on. 3. Don’t waste people’s time by being self-absorbed 4.People talk to you when they know they have a chance at being heard. 5. The best of conversations are often when ideas are discussed. 6. There are those ones you…

    Focus

    Focus. Meet Man, he is a bundle of vibrant ideas…  His ideas influence his actions.  His actions are driven by his energy. For man to get the best of life and not live an empty life, he must Focus.  Man’s ideas must converge towards his  Focus only then can he diverge his energy effectively and productively. It’s a happy Sunday from me to you! Drop your thoughts… I’d be waiting. #Wordstoliveby

    Dance 

    Dance. I’d not call myself a good dancer but hey, I know a move or two.  Sometimes you have to BREAK your way out of bitterness, TANGO with family and friends.  Little things will WALTZ their way into you heart, you have to treasure them because those are the stuff that count.  Don’t miss out on spicy Salsas… What’s life without such food? There is a move for every genre of music life plays you. Make sure you figure it out and apply it. Dance with or without music, dance spontaneously. It has a calming effect. Whatever you do, never stop dancing. #wordstoliveby  #SeptemberOfWorth
