Take Two Chocolates

Hello Fams… How has it been? This is my first post in the month of June. I am excited for quite a number of reasons, you can’t imagine. But there is something that is bugging me…  Lemme go straight.
A senior colleague of mine just returned from vacation abroad. Now, on the day she resumed we were all excited, welcoming her like Christiano Ronaldo returning back after the Champions league victory…

On Resumption - My Happy Sad Face

The last time, I talked about vacations, the fact that I went on a vacation and the importance of going on one. It’s been more than a week now since I got back to work and I resumed with the right spirit except for a hurting feet.

Vacation - Finally Over

Hello friends… I have been on a vacation of some sort for some time – about two weeks now. Those that follow me on Instagram (@egwumba01) would have noticed. I decided to spend the vacation not in Dubai or in Jamaica…lol. I decided to spend it in Eastern Nigeria. Yes, I crossed the Niger bridge. Yes, I went back home and to some other places - Awka, Owerri, Oguta, Onitsha, Orlu. Heheheeee...

Dem Send You?

It's been a while since my last post, and I am wondering why? Sometimes it feels like I am already giving up on blogging or maybe I am giving up on myself, depending on the way you look at it shaaa. Hmmm… I refuse to do this to myself right now (shake the anxiety off).
Yaaaaay! A lot has happened and is happening with me. There is a lot I would like to blog about, but I’ll be brief on this one.

My Lengthening Lent

Since the 1st of March, the Lenten season began. In Christendom, Lenten season is that period of 40 days where Christians are encouraged to observe sober reflection and adopt positive lifestyles in preparation for Easter, which marks the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. This period of 40 days helps us purge ourselves by taking up lifestyles that should/would make us better persons in every ramification.
The church (don’t ask me which church o) teaches us that the cardinal pillars during the Lenten period is Fasting, Prayer and Almsgiving. Thinking about this lately and discovered that it could have been anything, but anything has been summarised in to these 3 basic christian works. I would love to call them “Works of Faith”.

Happy Birthday to Moi

I am a day older today. I remember this day; last year… it feels just like yesterday. I spent the day with this set of people (colleagues and Friends); they made my birthday very memorable for me. I remember how they came together and prayed for me, ate my cake and drinks, sang together and snapped some pictures together. That was 2016.

I Walk for Cancer Prevention

“4th of February is world cancer day and I would be going on a walk for cancer prevention that would take place at Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island, Lagos... join us naa” she said to me. This was about 10PM, a day before the scheduled event.
Who gives you an impromptu notification or invite like this and expect you to show up. Most times, such invites are just to fulfill all righteousness – "let it not be like I did not tell him". I slept over the information and by morning around 5:00AM when I woke up, I made up my mind to attend. So I got up and prepared. Some friends accused me for not informing them about the event, I am sure by the time they read this, they will understand.

My Girlfriend is not my Best Friend

I have had this friend for over two years now and I can say that over the years, we have grown to know ourselves so well that I can boast of her as my best friend.

Best friend?

Sleep - You Will be Amazed

It’s a new week and the hustle continues; waking up early, stepping out of the house to go find my daily bread and possibly butter too. Last week, I didn’t start my week so well… I gisted you naa, how I woke up late and went to work, and how that defined the whole day for me. I can tell you now that in so many ways it affected even my whole week – last week. How do I get to avoid that in this new week?
I am sure you know this saying: early to bed; early to rise…lol, it is a funny one because as valid as it is, it doesn’t work all the time.

My 1st Day to Work in 2017 How I Fumbled

The year may have started on the 1st of January, but officially 2017 started for me and for so many others yesterday (3rd January). You know what I mean right? The holiday is over and it is back to work for some. You know how many detest Mondays just because it cuts short all the rest and/or flexing from the weekend. How when you are just coming to terms with the weekend mood, all of a sudden, you just have to wake and go to work. You know that feeling right? Yeaaa...Lol.

My Blog's New Outlook

In the spirit of the New Year, I decided to tamper with the theme of my blog and what you see now is what I came up with. What do you think about it? Do you remember what this space used to look like in 2016? See it bellow…

2017 My Year of Living in Grace

It feels more like Grace to me. We all call it New Year, but it sounds more like Grace to me. At exactly 12:00AM today, where were you? I was in Church… and the Priest wished us all a Happy New Year and just spontaneously there was an eruption of emotions… People began to shout (people like me naa…lol). Shouts of Victory; Shouts of Triumph, as if we have been in a battle with our enemy and have just been declared the winner. It was amazing. Music filled the air and there was dancing, just like David did. Some were seen going down on their knees with hands lifted to the heavens in worship, and adoration to the Most High. I can’t describe all I saw meehn because I was also in a world of my own that time.
All these for the New Year…? high expectations and new resolutions. The beauty of the whole thing is that even though we don’t know tomorrow but we are hopeful for the best. The moment of crossed over feels a lot like God’s Grace to me. Looking back, I know verily that my being here now has nothing to do with me, but the Grace and Mercies of God. So as I shouted in triumph over the enemy, I acknowledge that it is God who made it possible. His Grace will see us through to tomorrow and we will count down as the days go by.
