When it Rains…

It’s raining where I am. The sounds of the raindrops is very soothing to the ear. Its as if each droplet is in a rush to see who’s going to catch the ground first. I laugh because I’ve never thought of that before.

I love the rain, especially now that I’m snuggled up in my room with this book 📖. We’ve already had dinner; shrimp pasta and garlic bread, yummy!.

I can hear the sounds of frogs and crickets moving about. They’ve been displayed by the rain. Trying to find somewhere warm and safe.

When it rains I reflect more. I think about the present, the future and all the amazing things that I want to achieve. Its important to never take anything for granted. You are enough, you are important and you can be the change you want in this world.

Talking about the change I’m not certain if you’re aware of what’s happening in Nigeria 🇳🇬 What is SARS?. I’m saddened by all the persons who are being killed for standing up for what they believe in. Let’s pause and say a prayer hoping that things will change soon. #PrayforNigeria #EndSARs

Give thanks that you’re in a better space and never take anything for granted.

As always, I hope you’re Ok and safe😊.

Until next post…..

I’m miserable, that’s the truth….

You’re always reading, 😑 annoyed my husband said to me. He’s been nagging me to spend more time with doing anything else other than being tucked away in our bedroom reading books.

It’s been several months since the pandemic. We would be much busier trying to maneuver our respective jobs , raising a toddler and making things work.

It’s not easy, things are not the same or as they used to be. Our lives have been uprooted and so we have to get used to the new norm. We have conflicting schedules, online schooling taking care of a sick parent. Listen, I’m always cooking, juggling being a wife and caregiver but this sh*t is just too much. I thought I was going to lose it. Things got tighter, financially and while we’re still okay I had to cancel most of my subscription boxes, yes I had to make sacrifices we both had.

So, on October 5 I created this blog. I didn’t know what I was doing, still don’t ,but like all things before I’ll figure it out. I started reading books. One good book led to another, and another you get the picture. Book Reviews came and like this post in between ramblings. I haven’t set up a schedule just yet but I’m working off my mood for now.

How has Covid-19 affected your life?

Reading books and posting on my blog has been helping me not to go completely insane.

That’s all for now, I’m currently reading #WIldGame by Andriene Brodeur-

Until next post….

Are you Ok?

Today was a rather hectic day. I had to bail on an invitation because I had too much handling and just didn’t see how I could maneuver all without neglecting what really mattered.

I’m now sitting in the chair in my bedroom snuggled up with my book and thinking about how as adults we have to make tough decisions so that our lives are not uprooted in the long run. We are given tasks, responsibilities and what ever we decide has a dominoe effect on something else. In all the hustle and bustle remember that you have to think about you. Are you okay? Those are the words my toddler asked me…. Sometimes I wonder what old soul has occupied his body he’s very thoughtful.

It’s no good to do everything else and not be Ok.

Create a balance…. I’m still trying to create it.

Are you Ok?
