    It's been a while since I posted under this category. My bad for that. I promise you that from now on, I will be more regular in sharing the word of God as He lays it in my heart than ever before. I've been going through a certain season of transition in my life and as I have been spending time in God's presence one thing that has come out clearly is that no matter what I am going through, no...

    What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare. No time to stand beneath the boughs And stare as long as sheep or cows. No time to see, when woods we pass, Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass. No time to see, in broad daylight, Streams full of stars, like skies at night. No time to turn at Beauty's glance, And watch her feet, how they can dance. No time to wait till... [Continue reading]

    It’s funny how some things never make sense when you first read them until something happens that triggers a memory and alas, suddenly what didn’t make sense before now does. Joyce Meyer, one of my favorite televangelists, in her book “Battlefield of the mind” said this, “Our past may explain why we're suffering but we must not use it as an excuse to stay in bondage.” The first time I read this...

    It’s been 7 months since he breathed his last but to me it seems just like yesterday. I miss him a lot and especially this last week, I really wished he was still alive. I know most people wouldn’t understand my relationship with my dog but it was pretty special. Pancho wherever you are, just know I really miss you. So it was for this reason (missing him) that I decided to go to the net to browse... [Continue reading]

    It’s unbelievable to think that we are in March already. Isn’t it just the other day we were sending messages of goodwill over Christmas and New Year? What happened to the days in between? It feels like the earth is rotating faster nowadays than it used to before. It is unbelievable that we are in the last month of the first quarter of this year that was new just the other day. Of course at this... [Continue reading]

    As we come to the end of February, I was just looking back at the month that was and I realized that even though it is a 29 day month, this month has literally flown. Lots of the stuff that I expected to accomplish in this month did not happen not because I didn’t initiate the process, but because there were third party inputs that needed to be made for me to accomplish them but unfortunately the...

    There are things that happen that leave you baffled while others leave you completely speechless. You don’t know whether to comment, or to scream, or to question… This was my reaction when I read an extract from a certain social media platform that had given a summary of the murder trial of one Mr. Ronald Opus. I have no idea who Mr. Opus was, why he was murdered and why his story ended up online... [Continue reading]

    The internet is full of funny stuff, things that can cause one to laugh till your ribs hurt like someone gave you a kick. With the emergence of social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc., sharing of such stuff has become very easy especially now that almost every other person has a smartphone and internet bundles to compliment the phone. Besides, almost every office and up-... [Continue reading]

    February is normally a very special month to me, and before you start thinking its because of Valentine’s day, please be informed that this is not one of the reasons why the month is special. February is special to me because besides being the only month with inconsistent days, it also happens to be the month that I was born in. It also is the month my first born son, my only sister and my Mom... [Continue reading]

    It is sad how people go about life clueless and purposeless, forgetting that there is no way they could have been created if there was no purpose for them to fulfil. I know I have said this several times before but as I was thinking of what to share with my readers this week I was compelled to remind us all about living a purpose-led life, a life where you wake up in the morning not because your...

    Happy New Year to you all. I thank God for giving us all another opportunity to do life right. For many, this is a time for reflections and strategy making, a time when you review the year that passed and evaluate the quality of life you had vis-a-vis what you could have had, and why the difference. This is a time where you draw up a to-do-list and a not-to-do-list which is probably longer than... [Continue reading]

    When you see people walking on the streets, it is very easy to judge them based on how they look. It is very easy to rule them out based on how bad they are dressed, or to quickly accept them based on their ability to pack sentences. In short, it is very easy to quickly judge a person by their outward appearance as opposed spending time with them to try and really know who the person behind the... [Continue reading]

    It is inevitably that time of the season again when we experience little pockets of “madness” as a result of an animal we call politics. I confidently call it madness because according to an online dictionary I use, one of the definitions of madness is “a state of frenzied or chaotic activity” that is only experienced when certain activities are going on. For example, you can say that when... [Continue reading]

    I have to admit, there are times when even I feel like just throwing in the towel and giving up. Times when uncertainty hits me and I feel like not even my daily dose of motivation will make a difference to me. You know why this is so? Because before I am anything else, I am human first. I do get my lapses, I do get my “human-attacks”, I fear and panic like everyone else. The only difference is... [Continue reading]

    Before I finally decided to put my thoughts into words this week, I was divided between writing this article and three others that were bubbling inside of me. Not sure why but this one won the day and so I hope there’s someone out there who will really benefit and be inspired by the words they are about to read. A few weeks ago, I overheard someone saying to someone else that after a very long... [Continue reading]

    Let’s face it, no matter who you are, all what you do, every so often you will have some days in your life when thoughts of self-doubt and insecurity attack you like a swarm of bees. This could be due to certain things happening in your life at that particular moment such as multiple failures in projects you are handling, a bad relationship, stagnated business,etc. Well, we are not super-beings (...

    It’s been a while since I have deliberately taken time to visit Facebook and either update my status message, or just read through other people’s post. So on Friday morning we were in traffic and since I was feeling somehow sleepy, I decided to go through Facebook. I came across many posts but two caught my attention. The first one caught my attention purely because of the title which said: 15... [Continue reading]

    It’s not every week I know what I will be sharing with you my readers. Sometimes my thoughts are so jumbled up that I don’t know where to start and to say the truth, sometimes I don’t get a clear direction until a few hours before I submit my article to Guardian. Today’s article is one such article. I wasn’t sure what I’d write about until early on Saturday morning when I was jogging, then just... [Continue reading]

    Every so often I will share something I found from the net that touched my heart for one reason or another. Today’s share comes from the footballing arena, specifically from a lot of people’s football sweetheart. His name is Cristiano Ronaldo, the ladies eye candy… J Anyway, moving on swiftly, this is the honorable and touching story of Cristiano. Moments after Real Madrid Football Club won their...

    I saw a meme on Google recently that had a very powerful impact on me. This meme had a picture of a lion and maybe a less than a month old cab.  The tiny little cab was looking up to the big ominous looking, huge-maned king of the jungle, while the king was looking softly downwards towards the little clue-less and innocent cat. The caption on the meme said, “I thought about quitting, but then... [Continue reading]

    May I start this article today by wishing all my Muslim brothers, sisters and friends from all over the world Eid Mubarak. May the genuine prayers and supplications you have offered to Allah during your fast be answered and made manifest in your lives and those of your families. Speaking of fasting, I took some time to do a little research to find out what Ramadhan is all about. As I was talking... [Continue reading]

    In my article last week I touched on the bitterness, anger, jealousy, envy, etc that seems to be ruling the world today. It seems like love has gone out of the world and instead of it there is hatred. But fortunately, there are a few people who still have their hearts filled with love and no matter what happens they don’t allow the contamination in the world to extend to them. Unfortunately, the... [Continue reading]

    Envy. Jealousy. Bitterness. Anger. Hatred. These seem to be the constant “rulers” of the world we live in today. People being envious and jealous of your achievements, others being bitter and angry because according to them you got “easily” what they have been working so hard to get. As a result, the hatred that fills the hearts of many is so much and palpable that I think scientists and... [Continue reading]

    The last few months have been a bit hectic for me. I took on an assignment that has literally topsy-turvied my life in the sense that I have been finding myself extremely busy lately. Sometimes too busy to even get time to have my nails done! I’m not complaining, just surprised that it is possible for someone to be that busy. I am trying to look for a workable work-around that allows me to... [Continue reading]

    Happy New Year 2015 to you reading this column/article today. Indeed it is a great honor to be back here sharing my thoughts with you but above all, I am humbled that you always take time to read what I share. I hope this year you will share more of your feedback with me and that you will share the articles you read with your circles too. To start the year I’d like us to revisit my school days,...

    Happy Holidays to you my valued reader. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and Boxing Day, and you are looking forward to a great 2015. I can’t complain about my Christmas experience this year but I have to admit it was very different. This year we didn’t do BBQs or eat ourselves to constipation like we almost always do every other year, but we had a lovely time together as a family; yes, that... [Continue reading]

    It's that time of year again. December has come and with it all the joys of Christmas. This year somehow feels different in the sense that the Christmas mood somehow feels dampened. Actually it seems like as years go by, or as we grow older the excitement about Christmas reduces. I don’t know exactly why but I guess the pressure that comes with the season could be part of the reason. I think... [Continue reading]

    The word “Ebola” has been on almost everyone’s lips in the last few months especially after it started affecting people in parts of the world where it was never expected to touch. I have to admit that when I first heard of the disease a few years ago, I never thought it would be such a serious threat to the rest of the world since it was just in West Africa. After all, I lived (still do) in East... [Continue reading]

    If there is anything that is challenging, it is losing fat, especially belly fat after you have accumulated enough of it. It reaches a point where you get disgusted by the image you see in the mirror when you look at yourself because you just can’t believe how much fat you have accumulated around you. Well, I guess not everyone feels this way but I have to admit this is something I have been... [Continue reading]
