How to stay busy with the ongoing lockdown

It’s been a pretty tough time in a pretty tough situation, driving everyone nuts. Having to stay at home unwillingly is another great ordeal to deal with.
While I sat down in my room I got the idea to begin a 10 days writing challenge in which I came up with some interesting topics( see image below)


This is also a challenge principally for myself  as I haven’t been consistent with my blog posts…
I hope I spread a little fun and brighten your days ahead, while we stay positive.

Mystery in my words: Award Nomination

I am so delighted and happy! I was nominated by Jill, owner of the site “Cats out the box”. Thank you so much Jill, for your constant read and contribution. Cats out of the Boxis a very interesting site filled with life expiriences, inspiring and motivating posts! You may want to check and discover it’s uniqueness and style!

Three things about me:

  1. I am very family oriented. I dedicate my resources to care for those I love.
  2. I like team work but I can tend to love working independently at times.
  3. No matter how I get angry at someone, the sun never goes down on my anger.

1.What is one place you would like to travel to and why?

Answer: To Egypt, the place where civilization began in Africa. I have always thought there lies a lot of inspiration there!

2.What book have you read that has had the most influence on your life and why?

Answer: The battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. It teaches one how to master and conquer battles in the mind. Victory starts from the mind. Once you conceive it in mind, your actions will prove it.

3.What do you think of when you look at the stars in the night sky?

Answer: I think of the courage and motivation even nature exudes. No matter how dark the vast firmament maybe…..the tiny dazzling crystals (stars) are never afraid to shine to their very best! And they create a divine beauty in the night. We should learn from them
4.Why do you write a blog?

Answer: I blog to motivate, inspire, quicken. Most of my posts are my real life expiriences. I turn the pains into gains to motivate and inspire readers and even my own self.

5.My funny question: What sounds more appealing as a potato chip flavor: ketchup, dill pickle or salt and vinegar? Or all three? Or none of the above? Why?

Answer: Salt and Vinegar 😂😂. When having potato chip I can’t stop closing my eyes and producing a screatching sound with my teeth to get rid of the sour taste I get at the end. I guess my taste buds are super sensitive😁

Leaving you all with my favourite quote of 2018.

A vote of thanks….500 Followers🙌🎉

The decision I made to begin this motivational site “Living what you love”, has without regret being so far one of the best decisions I have made….ever! And I have no one else to thank for this, than every awesome blogger, who have diligently followed my blog, liked my content, and shared their contributions, and feelings with me.

I received a notification earlier today, that I have a cumulative followers amount of 500 bloggers😊😊😊. It felt so good, and I felt all the more determined to keep on writing, motivating and inspiring.

I have come across 500 bloggers, with quite unique writing angles, different tones and voices, but yet beautiful and special. I couldn’t have come this far without you all. And I am grateful for that 🌸 ❤ 🙌

So far, there are lots of lessons I have learnt, and I would like to share:

1) No man can ever be an island. We need each other. Throughout my blogging journey, I have realised that it is imperative we do unto others, what we’d want to be done unto us. If we need followers, then we should be ready to follow.

2) Blogging does not only strengthen our pen, it gives us opportunities to make new friends. I have had lots😊.

3) Blogging helps us build a community. A sense of responsibility, belonging, and oneness is obtained.

4) In a long run, blogging teaches us discipline. There are days I spend hours searching for an inspiration. Sometimes I read more, to get inspired to share.

5) It brings fulfilment.

6) It heightens our diligence.

So there!!!….Thank you all so much and let’s keep sharing and inspiring.

Lots of love❤❤❤🌸🙏

Blogger Recognition Award

Wow is the word that describes how I feel right now. Having to share my thoughts from my view point via this platform, and having a community of awesome bloggers who throw more light to my thoughts. Success is never achieved by one. One will chase a thousand and two, tens of thousands.

A huge thanks to all my fellow blogger-friends ❤❤

I wish to equally thank Rad Gamer for haven nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. He’s a passionate blogger with quite a unique angle in writing motivational posts, and also has a great taste in writing life-changing quotes as well. Checking out his blog will leave you amazed on how he scribbles down inspiration. Thanks once more😊

The Rules:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
2. Write a post to show your award.
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award.
6. Comment on each blog to let them know you’ve nominated them and a link to the post you created.


I started blogging on April 15th, 2017. I had alot going through in my life at that time. Some I could control and some I just couldn’t. I found myself living a life that wasn’t for me. Fulfilling dreams that weren’t mine. And finally when I got the hold of myself and realized the grave mistake I made, I told myself one day, that I will turn my pain into gain. I will turn my expirience and story into writings, to help whoever comes across. That’s how I started my motivational blog site Living what you love.


To everyone who’s starting this blogging journey, I would say take the exercise as a passion. Develop a soft spot for it. Find pleasure doing it….and it’d be fun. There’s no other way of becoming a professional blogger, than to keep doing it…all the time.

Also, it won’t be easy finding what to write all the time. So it’d leave u deficient at some point, because you will have little or nothing to write on. But like I always do….find your inspiration source. Once you know what drives you, you will always have something to ride home. It must not always be what the big pictures tells you. Write posts that relate with your desired audience. In so doing you built your community.

Nomination time!!!!

The power of “The Many”

    Love for oneself,  one another and selflessness exist among us all, irrespective of age, race, gender, or fianacial classification…

    5. Who is your ole model and how did that person inspire you??

    Nicholas James vujcic…. A motivational speaker and christian evangelist born with a tetra-amelia syndrome which resulted to him having no hands and legs..but yet, has impacted lives and encouraged others who have hands and legs…

    Well, society is fine melange of people from different culture, having separate identity, different attitude…It is a place where the good, the bad, and ugly things happen. But what makes it unique is when people stand up to the right things…..

    10. How do you deal with your weaknesses?

    Truly, weaknesses are hard to be dealt with. For there’s no one who’s a “perfect being “.

    But each time I do something wrong, I try to make them right!!!! The craving to do the right thing is my secret weapon to stabilizing my weaknesses.

    11. If you get a chance and travel to the past what changes will you make there??

    None. This is because mistakes made or happenings that didn’t suit my past life, all amounted to creating a wonderful personality within me. Nothing happens for nothing….Amidst it all, I focus on what I’d want to see.. And let bygones be bygones…..
