My inspiration……. Blogging

I gave out a big shout, “God! Please what will I do to better my life and give it a meaning”. I paused, and then just like the flashing of light the idea appeared. ” Just write”. What will I write about? I asked no one in particular but myself. Without waiting for an answer, I quickly stretched my long hands to grab my pen, notebook and began writing.

 I flipped the pages of the notebook to a clean page and began the writing. I paused after penning down a few thoughts but didn’t want to stop. I really wanted to continue and so continued I did. My inspiration to write did not stop – it flowed like a river. I must admit I was enjoying it.  post

The inspiration to do many things come at different stages of our lives. Ones inspiration may be Subtle, Loud, Dreamy, Hint, etc. But in all, an inspiration is an inspiration. However it might be, it needs action to boost it up and build it up. When an inspiration is lacking in action, it leads to a bigger problem. When I had the inspiration to write, it was subtle. The message was “just write”. If I had doubted it for a second that would have been the end to the inspiration. But rather than being doubtful, I went on with Faith and added action to it. The result was an activity that gave me pleasure and a positive peace of mind.


I remember waking up this morning at about 5:30am with a slight headache after my sister was shuffling her feet all around the room under the guise that she is packing for an out of town trip. I dragged the duvet up to my eyes literally to cover my eyes from the light ray that kept on gazing at me *smiles*. It’s funny that I can actually smile after such a long day with mirage of activities. Some days are like that as you wanna cry all the tears out of your so that there is no more. But then, I discovered a trick to being happy in the midst of ones broke state of dirt poor or extremely poverty.

 It’s possible that when you are expecting some kind of love, empathy from relatives and friends , they are nowhere to be found. Everyone is busy preparing for the weekeend in a grand style and you have no idea how your day will be talk more of the weekend that is three days from now. I’ve been there and can narrate what it feels like. It was extremely horrible and confusing. I hated imbidng the culture of patiences. Prior to now, I have already applied for jobs with various agencies,  I was expecting to get a positive response from any of them but none . I rang one of the agencies to get an update but no response. It was devastating. What will I do? I was too broke to have realised I was and felt disappointed for not doing anything to have averted this curse.

I cried, cried, cried and was scare to live for the next day. I pray to God to bring about a miracle. Then after some minutes, I started sobbing with tears flowing my cheeks. In the midst of my tearful session, I had an idea which healed me automatically. Though I hadn’t gotten any credit alert but I became more relaxed face of the problem.


1. BE POSITIVE: Force yourself to look at the brighter side of life. It’s possible because I’ve tried it and know so. Look at your goals and make an affirmative statement like this; 

       ”I don’t care what problem I’m facing right now but I must never give up. The problems are here to challenge me and build me up for the future and I must also learn the lessons this problem has to offer.” 

Read out your goals to yourself until you are convinced that you will achieve them.

2. VISUALIZE SUCCESS: There’s no quicker way to get closer to sucess than visualising it for yourself. 

Here is the trick,

Close your eyes to put out distractions and literally see yourself achieving your goals one after the other. Don’t let any feeling of negativity creep in but flow with it until you feel an inner satisfaction.

3. READ: Reading calms you and take your mind off reality.  The folowing books will offer healing to your soul;

God’s Words: The Bible book of Hebrews 11 offered a great teaching on Faith which is a vital tool in Christian living. The Epistles are also an interesting study to mould one’s mind into a positive attitude. The Bible book of Proverbs provides wise bit to guide one to greatness.

Motivational books: I’m a lover of motivational books. The effect of motivational books in the life of a person cannot be overemphasized. Great books such as Never give up – Joyce Meyer, The Midas touch – Kenneth E. Hagin, The believers Authority – Kenneth W. Hagin, The Magic of Thinking Big – David J. Schwartz, The Secret – Rhonda Bryne, The Promise – Rhonda Bryne, can recreate one’s thought and attitude.
4. LISTEN TO MOTIVATIONAL AUDIO TAPES: This is another vital tool to formulate a positive attitude. Motivational audio tapes are magical and I love them. Have them in your cars and phones.

5. WATCH MOVIES OR COMEDY SHOW: Nothing is ever as interesting as watching something that strikes your fantasy and increases your level of curiosity other than movies and comedy shows. Take a trip to the movies or a comedy show and enjoy the beauty of the evening. You can also binge on Netflix while having a bubble bath along with a glass of wine.

   6. PRAY: Don’t forget to Pray to God. There’s nothing as cool as that, that I’m yet to see. When I Pray, I feel overly confident that anything is possible with God, (see Matt. 19:26). Praying makes me feel I’m not alone in this, so why should I be afraid. Indeed, Praying is the key in possessing a positive attitude.



Keep hoping for the best. Xoxo

Confidence is a personal battle

Ones level of confidence – high or low is a decision you have to make and move with it.  Your confidence can only be harness to a large extent by your true self. Confidence is a deeper belief in oneself, abilities, creativity and intelligence.  Working out your confidence level from low to high can only be cultivated by you.  It is possible that you may face obstacles on the way but determination can pave a way to a miracle. 

Never underestimate the power you have within you. Keep harnessing such powers to cultivate  confidence. 


*Do peps: Having Pep talk before the commencement of any task give you a leverage in completing such task successfully. You need to believe in yourself to the extent of saying it out loud to yourself. I do pep talk regularly and has recorded a high success rate. This is one habit I am not thinking of dropping any time soon.   

* Flush out the past: The past no matter how it seem can play a significant role in our confidence especially if it was a painful one.  A painful past can distort ones level of confidence. Thinking of the hurts, humiliation,sorrows,anger, rejection of the past may advertently influence your confidence level.  You have to let go of the past and its woes. It was painful I know, but moving on and thereby leaving the past behind can work more magic for you. 

*Think more of the present and future. See the past as a learning ground; a stage you have to pass through to be successful in the present and future. The pains of the past may creep in sometimes but when it comes, counter it with something positive from the present.

*Positive self-talk: I cannot overemphasise the power in positive self-talks. The power in self-talks is beyond explanation, it’s powerful, enthralling and superior. When others don’t believe in you, do you join them in not believing in yourself? If you do that you are not been true to your unique self. When I use positive self-talks in the midst of confusing and depressing situation, it brings about a positive change instantly.  Use positive words such as; I am unique, I am the wisest person on the surface of the earth, I am smart and will pull this through, I have something to offer to the world. 

*Make friends with the right people: The more positive friends you keep, the happy you will be.  It is a simply equation,  be friends with people that have the same aspirations and goals as you. 

      Conclusion: You can make it happen,  just believe.
