I have come to the unfortunate discovery that the society we live in, have an abundance of bitter people. Or like in popular culture; haters. Look around you, on social media; in comment sections, irrespective of how good an information is, how beautiful a story is there will always be people who will find something negative to say about it.

Poverty is a bastard.
May God punish poverty in your life.
I pray for you that you will not be poor.
May the works of your hands bring forth fruits.
May you be prosperous.
May you not labour in vain.
May you be a lender, not a borrower; be a giver, not a taker.
May you never have any cause to beg for money on social media. Read More »
In recent times, there have been some debates and comparison between Entrepreneurs and those who work 9-5. I am of the opinion that not everyone can be an Entrepreneur, or rather everyone can be an Entrepreneur but not everyone should be an Entrepreneur. Read More »
As a creative person and someone who does handwork, there have been times I was making something or designing a cake and I made mistakes, but because I am the one making it, I turn that mistake into a style. And if you aren’t told, you wouldn’t know it was a mistake. Read More »

Are you going through difficult times, do you feel overwhelmed, do you feel like it may never end? Do you sometimes ask yourself, if it’s all worth it, well I’m here to tell you that it is. Your tears are not in vain. One day your tears will be worth it.
One day your pains will be all worth it. I know you have cried, I know you may have gone through things you never imagined you would go through. You may have been through hell or high water; you may have been between the devil and the deep blue sea.
You may have been insulted, despised and looked down upon, you may have been called all sorts of names, been misunderstood, but I am here to tell you that one day, not too long from now, your pains will be all worth it.
Can I please say stop crying? Can I? Please stop crying, don’t overthink your pain, and don’t sweat it. Your tears will not be in vain.
We don’t go through stuffs for nothing. At the end of it all, you will come out stronger. You will be better for it. You will look back at the once painful story and you will thank God for it.
Document your challenges, document your lessons, because you will learn and grow from every battle you face.
Your past will not define you; it will only refine you.
You know what, if you can just hold on a little while longer, not too long from now, your story will change and inspire millions.
One day your pains will be all worth it.
I am rooting for you.

How’s the last month of the year going like for you?
So it’s no longer news that I’m an aspiring doctor
But then I sometimes ask myself
“Hey girl, are you sure you want to be a doctor?
Are you sure you’ve got what it takes
All the stress, the exams and all
Can you really cope?
Forget the prestige of the name doctor,
Do you love the job?
Forget the lab coat,
Do you love the lifestyle (because medicine is a lifestyle)
Are you sure someone can entrust their life in your hands?
Forget all those childhood dreams, Debbie,
Do you really have the passion?
Have you been called to it? (because being a doctor is a calling)”
And then I answer myself saying
“I can do it
I was born for it
I have the passion to be a doctor
I love the job
And the lifestyle too
I believe I can do all things
Because Christ has given me the strength
I know that I have been called into this tasking army
God has given me the opportunity to choose between life and death
And I have chosen life
So yes, someone can entrust their life in my hands
Not because I can do it all
But because I know the eternal creator is always beside me
I am going into this, not for myself
But because I know
A lot of lives are tied to it
Both spiritually and physically”
And whenever I remind myself this,
I get a new zeal
A new strength to forge ahead, to carry on
I am reassured in my spirit
That I can do this
And yes I will.
