Living a stress free life in 2021 is on everyone’s wishlist right now.
I mean, I crave it.
I hate having to eat only crackers the whole day because I’m too stressed from work to cook. I hate having to see my mom on some days because she is too stressed to chit chat.
So yeah, I haven’t seen anyone who likes stress, or enjoys been stressed.
I’ve seen some of my friends who have been so bitchy and unapproachable because of stress. Some are disgusted with their work, not because it’s too hot to handle, but because their clients are embodied with stress; they carry stress like a fragrance to choke anyone who attends to them.

I write this letter in angry tears…in fact, this lemon top of mine is been scarred with dry wasted tears even as I write this.
I write this to hide it in my drawer but I’m hoping it gets to you. Wishing that my tears would embrace yours. Praying that these angry tears would stop flowing, but I can’t control it. So just for today, I’m letting it flow.
Those piercing words you’ve probably heard before, I heard again last night, and its echoes replaying in my tiny little head brought these uncontrolable angry tears.
The voice of rejection.

The voice of selfishness
That same voice that tells me to my face that I was taken for granted.

There are interesting facts about Abuja that may or may not be interesting to you but are important we discuss about.
Having visited 21 states in the country and 15 more states left to achieve my travel goals of visiting the complete 36 states of the federation, I was excited about coming to Abuja, the federal capital territory of Nigeria for the first time.
It had been one of my travel goals for 2021 and it’s beautiful how surprisingly, everything went smoothly. I packed my bags with my travel necessities ( if you know me, I don’t miss packing my travel must have’s for any trip) and began this journey.
My exact thought was “its time to find out what is so special about this city that everyone has been making noise about.” And well, I didn’t know I was in for a big surprise. *laughs*

Are you having bad days? I bet you are or once were. Truth is, I also have bad days. Who doesn’t?
Sometimes we worry, sometimes the office gets toxic, sometimes parenting becomes stressful, sometimes working becomes draining, sometimes rest seems far fetched, sometimes we are faced with stumbling blocks, sometimes memories of that trauma haunts you again, sometimes something triggers the pain of losing that person, and sometimes even adulthood alone stresses the hell out of you.
And the crazy part is that, on those bad days we lash out, transfer aggression, become quiet, overthink, talk about it, call a therapist, get treated but we seldom seek Gods words.
His scriptures have been designed to be there for us on those bad days when all we can see is the evil and ugly. On those dark days his words have been written to lighten our lives.

Does time heal every wound? A question I asked myself after i watched something few weeks back when an elderly man tapped a younger man on the shoulder and said “time heals all wounds lad.” And I burst out laughing. Really? Who was he kidding?
I guess he was just trying to encourage the young guy or make him feel better about the situation. Maybe it worked but I’m sure latter he would realize the bitter truth.
I bought a gorgeous heel three years ago and it was sparkling and clean and everything that makes a shoe new. Now I’m staring at it in the wardrobe and its no longer shinning, no longer new. Infact, it has a sratch on the tip, and a dark line on the sole.
A lot has changed yet, it’s still the same nude shoe I bought three years ago. Even more comfortable now than when it was new because my feet has gotten used to it. Its familiar & comfortable just like a relationship between a married couple.

Someone asked me this question few days ago; Chika, where do you want to be in 5 years?
I’m sure the person is probably going to hate me from that day because my answer was not nice at all. *hahaha*
I answered that, “I did not understand last year, I’m still trying to understand & navigate this year. Am I Jesus Christ that I would know where I’d want to be in five years from now? I don’t like nonsense joor.” *laughs*
I made a joke out of it because I was pissed by the question in the first place. I just didnt want to sound rude or ignore the person asking so I made light of it.

This success story is unfinished because for me success is not a destination. Success is a journey of starting something and watching it grow.
Success is more of seeing something you started grow and flourish everyday bit by bit.
I went to visit my friend and my Godson on Sunday and on my way there I couldn’t help but smile when I was right in front of a woman I used to buy fresh pepper and tomatoes from. Everything was different and it was so beautiful to see. She was attending to someone so I simply passed and made a mental note to say hi to her when I was going back home.
The man she sold for saw me always turning back and smiling and caught up with me when he was done buying his food stuffs.
“I saw you smiling at her, is everything okay?”
“Yes,” I smiled again. “The growth is blinding sir. She has two tables now. My God!” I exclaimed laughing.
“Oh. Now I understand you…

The consequences of ignoring the holy spirit are dire and detrimental to your existence as a beautiful lady & sophisticated gentleman.
The past couple of weeks have been very trying and challenging in almost every area of my life aside from one. *winks* First my mom was ill, something so little that we even took lightly ended up been so drastuc, and would have been destructive if I kept ignoring the holy spirit. Now as a family we are as fresh as a newly baked cake and equally happy.
I’ve seen myself making spur of the moment decisions this week. You know those kind of unexpected events that drive you to make decisions you never saw coming. This particular one made me withdrawn, and dampened my resolve to an extent that I had no idea on the way forward, like a plot twist. The only way forward was scary and daunting until I heard his voice.
“Make that call.” I heard and ignored.
