Some Self-Love Ain’t a Bad Idea

You come first.


I was feeling the need to appreciate myself today (not like I don’t do it every other day 😏), so I dug up some notes I’d made for future reference. ☺️


Life isn’t always about rules; what’s wrong or right. Having a perfectly balanced diet, eating only ‘healthy’ foods which fall under a class of food. Grabbing every opportunity that comes your way (you gotta let go of some for the sake of those you love, not every opportunity is even good!). Doing the ‘normal things’, you know the whole cliché thing! It’s about taking chances, doing the odd, enjoying surprises and doing the abnormal things! Everyone’s different, including you. Whatever may be right or wrong to you may be wrong or right to someone else. Respond to life the way it comes, do whatever makes you happy (it’s gotta be reasonable though), not what you’re meant to do as a ‘normal’ human being.

There’s more to life than staying in your comfort zone. Move out and get your hands on as many things as possible! Life’s too short!” (I’m still trying to practically learn this one 🤦🏾‍♀️😪)

You needn’t compare yourself with others; you weren’t created in the same format or with the same components as those you’re comparing yourself with. You weren’t created for the same purposes or with the exact same tools, either!

Before your existence, people ‘said’. You have been here for some time now; people have ‘said’. You are here now; people are ‘saying’. You will be here if the Lord tarries; people will ‘say’. One thing you may fail to realise is that people who ‘say’ are a compulsory part of life. That is their own cross. When you die, the trend will continue. So why will you let such condemned people dictate your own life? That they cannot say it to your face means that they are either jealous, or scared of you. That is your own strength; that is their own weakness. If anything, you should be happy that you have something worthwhile doing, whilst they have none! You are living a life; they are watching you!


Let me just throw this random one in 👀: “Women with handsome sons, keep them out of your friends’ sights, lest they become your in-laws — as well as your greatest nightmare.

And this one 🙊: “Women may grow old, but the demons within them remain forever young.” 🏃🏾‍♀️

Alright. That’s it. 🙃 Until Monday, stay blessed! ✌🏾

There's an eternity worth of things to say, but to keep it short, I'm a very deep individual, an avid reader and student of humans and the things around us that we interact with. If you ask me, everything has the capacity to be the topic of a deep discussion, including toilet paper. In a discussion, I'd be that person that gets everyone (including the one who's making the most noise) to go "oooooooohh!!" My thoughts spark elements in people's brains. I love imparting knowledge and I kind of have an issue with conveniently unenlightened people, who like to voice their every opinion. I love the spiritual stuff!! God is too awesome for words. There's always something to blow my mind each time I plug in. God is so deep, it's ceaselessly fascinating for me. You should totally visit the spiritual part of my mind. It's indescribable. Insane adrenaline flowing in there!
