Whenever I pray for myself or for others I always include peace, love, unity, prosperity, happiness. Yesterday I sat on my bed and stared through my window. It was daytime, noonish to be exact, and as usual the estate is quiet and peaceful. I began to think as I stared out my window, about life and what makes us happy. The “us”, here means humans, I often think of us here on this planet. In my mind I began to answer the questions I was posing to myself. The most obvious answer was money. To many people having access to…

Yesterday morning I sprung from my bed, turned on my computer and began to write. I told you all and everything that has been on my mind recently and even took you through some of my reflections. Imagine how I felt when I turned my back for one second and came back to see that all I had typed was gone? I had forgotten to save it! I was honest as usual in the deleted post, and spoke about the men of my life, all of who were dirt bags, I apologize to my children for calling your fathers dirt…

Someone made a comment the other day in one of my post and thanked me for sharing my experiences with them for them to learn. When I saw the comment I sighed and shook my head, to see how far I have come in life. From the little girl who was pushed out of all she knew which was her family home, to go and face the world with a new born baby when she was a child herself. I had no idea what the world had in store for me, or even if I would make it. I was…

Good day everyone, I pray all is well for anyone who reads this blog post and that you are all awake and conscious of our present lives. I woke up this morning in a rush to go out and buy some things I need and have been putting off for a long time. I do this at times, put stuff off and then one day rush to do them all at once. I guess this is apart of my natural personality, and even though I become annoyed with myself at times for it, if truth be told I really love…

Two days or I should say nights ago, we took an outing to one of Lagos’s rough ghetto areas called Mushin, not the market (for the Nigerians who will read this) the town itself. We were going to meet up with someone near the Luth hospital. The driver we have is a little short man, (he says he’s twenty, but he looks 45 wrinkles and all) who can drive very well but does not “know road”, as Nigerians say. No matter how many times we have traveled somewhere and have directed him, we will still have to direct him again…

Namaste to all my bloggers, peepers, new comers and somtimers, although it seems like me the blog owner tun sometimer nowadays. It is due to me being very busy, not being neglectful at all. Today Diwali the festival of lights is being celebrated all over the world by Hindu’s and others like myself who appreciate this festival and all it stands for. In 2014 our then blogger (don’t know what happen to her, but mi wish her well) Ty had written on Diwali. Her husband Yw although Jamaican like herself is of Indian descent or ancestry. I remember growing up…

When life seem dark and your path seems dreary, hold on to hope, your faith, your dream and your God, your belief. Always remember this too shall pass. Keep a positive mind, do not become confused and fearful when things begin to fall apart, always remember to pray. It matters not your belief, or even if you are unsure if there is an unseen being, a higher power, which resides above or below. Know that your very existence shows that there is greater than you somewhere, create that energy within your own mind, if you do not want to conform…

For some reason, regardless of all that I think I know and with all that I KNOW I know (lol, laugh with me here, although I am serious), I am forever hopeful when it comes to human beings and their ways, I truly am. Jamaican people say “Pick the beam from your own eyes before you pick it from another”. I know who I am and am aware of my own character. Yes I have a temper and can get very cross, (never miserable) and I do get angry at times (shout out to Bounty Killa), but will cool myself…

Hello everyone, it has been sometime since you heard from me. Happy new Year to all. I have been having difficulties getting online, due to not having service in my area, but I am working on it. I thank all who have emailed me with good and kind words, wishing me blessings for the new year, and also those who email me about the blogs, saying they miss them. There are truly some good and decent in the world, not many, but we praise the Lord, and Hallelujah lol. (more…)

“Stab the body and it heals, but injure the heart and the wound lasts a lifetime.” ― Mineko Iwasaki The quote up top describes just how I feel about betrayal. I have always wondered, what makes up the mind of a friend to betray another friend or even family. The bible speaks of Judas Iscariot, one of the most famous betrayer of all times, but upon further study of the mythical stories of the bible, you will find that Judas was chosen to release Jesus from his earthly clothes, (suh oonuh Christians, you can low de man name now). Judas…
