On Moving On

Hello again,

In the past couple of years, well-meaning friends and family members have told me to "move on." Most of the time when they say I need to move on, they mean I need to get into a new relationship or get remarried.

My Baby Is Growing Up - Bittersweet Feelings

Hey there,

Today I'm a little bit in my feelings. Yesterday Coco showed me her first wiggly tooth. I had gone to pick her up after school and as I reached down to hug her, she said "Mummy look! My tooth is wiggly."

Life Lately: Hello September

 Yoo hoo! Does this thing still work? Lots of cobwebs, I see. Well cobwebs and all, I feel the need to come here and write a blog post. Is it for me? Is it for you who's reading? I don't know. But I feel compelled to write and write I shall. The easiest way for me to do this right now is with a Life Lately post like I used to do eons ago. *cracks knuckles* Let's get on with it...

Happy 40th Birthday to Me


Happy 40th Birthday to me!

A few years ago I dreaded being this "old." But now I embrace getting to start and rock my 40's. My 30's were great and also very challenging - moving back to Nigeria for NYSC, deciding to stay (for work and love, or what I thought was love) and moving back home to ATL; content creation in different formats (blogging, YouTube, podcasting); getting married - having our daughter after trying for 2+ years - getting separated and finally divorcing this year; going from broke and in so much debt to being a homeowner; seemingly going backwards career-wise 👀 but slowly making strides and pivoting; I could go on and on.

What I pray for in my 40's is really come into my own. To come into the woman God meant me to be. To find Him again. To be the best mother to Coco. I pray to be full of grace and live a graceful life as God intended. To let go completely of my past mistakes and forge ahead with wisdom. I pray to thrive work-wise and make an impact. To be more intentional in every aspect of my life. To live a life rooted in prayer, gratitude and joy. To be a better money manager (I'm pretty good already but 👀) because why do I have credit card debt on my birthday instead of having a small chops hangout? I pray to be fit spiritually, physically, emotionally, financially and any other -ally that makes sense. 

Thanks be to God Almighty for bringing me this far! May the next decade be the absolute best ever!
