Leaving you all with my favourite quote of 2018.

Relationship Goals! Wednesday Motivational Quotes💪❤❤

Today has been a wonderful day and as I witnessed this day come by I had these lessons probing my mind.

I hope you enjoy as you share in with my deepest thoughts and lessons learnt!

Here’s the first lesson:

Sometimes what we need is that distance. That silence, that gap, to finally realise and see things clearly. When things are too close to us, we tend to forget it’s originality. We tend to forget it’s value. We chase after the things which are far off. …. because to us we think those are the things which are important.

But when we finally loose it….we realise just how much we had missed!

Here comes the second:

A relationship is about 2 different people working it out. It requires work.

Here’s the third:


Our happiness starts with us. I will always say….

If you can’t be happy while single, you won’t be when you finally meet a partner.

There’s no perfect “hero”…neither is there any perfect human. We are all so full of imperfections. We are self-centered at times and want people to understand us, with little bearing on how others are yearning that they should be understood too!!!

But when it comes to love…..it sees what no one else does…

It sees the good in the bad…

It accepts who you for who you are not..

Because it is impartial…

It qualifies even when everyone’s else disqualifies….

It’s unconditional and doesn’t keep record of wrongs….

Love is the purest feeling….❤

Capable of resusitating the good in a person.

It’s a beautiful feeling.

Keep loving❤❤❤❤

Happy wednesday

Musings of the Heart

You deserve better…

Far beyond what is expressed on the letter…

You put in your love and heart to it…

But sometimes you feel that feeling isn’t it…

Never be disappointed you let love grow in your heart…

Even when you can’t hear the fine echoes resonating from the heart of the one you love…

Love is you and you are love…

Love is patient…

And in your patience be content you felt “love”

Give yourself the love you seek ..

Be the love you never recieved..


When the heart is broken….

The mind is broken….

The soul is caged..

And so is the body…

Healing is what you need..

For a tender touch you plead..

To conceal the feeling of pain..

Turning them into gain..

And then you remember…

That you should say a prayer..

When it’s all been said and done…

You will let solitude be gone.

Blogger Recognition Award #2

I’m so happy and it feels so good when there is someone somewhere who appreciates and reads the words you put together. I just want to say a huge thanks to the owner of the site idealideas for nominating me for this award. You would probably want to check out her blog. She writes great content.

And thanks to all my fellow bloggers. There’s alot I have learnt form you all these past years, and I’m so grateful for that🌸🌸❤❤❤💕

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.


My answer will obviously be the same. 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.

Keep blogging till you become perfect. There is no other way of being a professional, than doing it all the time😊. So keep blogging.


Every blogger deserves recognition. This is because, blogging entails our time, our passion, our inspiration. It is a medium through which we convey the messages, emotions and stories in our hearts and minds. Which is why, I’m giving an open nomination.

To everyone reading this blog post, I nominated you for this award because you are all awesome and worthy of recognition.

Happy week

Lots of love💕🌸

THE MAN FROM WITHIN(The battlefield of the mind)

Today, I wish to talk on the man from within. We are more to what the eye see. Everyone who’s living is either an actor or an actress. We act  by what life throws at  us. Life gives us a plot and we develop our various characters and traits. We tend to wear a smile on our faces, but our hearts lurks with tears. We say all is well, when it’s definetly not. We are at constant battle and war  with the man within. The real “YOU”. We desire and wish to be in control of things but we find ourselves being incapacitated. We think to ourselves there’s something missing, yet we can’t find. True, it’s said man is a thinking being. But these thoughts that crop in mind daily places us at various war fronts. We battle with decisions within ourselves everyday, seeking the ultimate good. 
I am one good of a thinker. There are times when the disc in my mind goes playing. I start to ask myself questions, my worries keep going on a rise, then I battle within.

“Will problems ever cease”

It’s a definite NO. Relatively, I don’t think they’ll ever end. Our thoughts will never end. The constant battle will never end. But we got an edge over all these.
There sitting in the lonely boxed up corner in you head, you lack words, you seem to loose it. It’s like you are booting up.This is the real man. I would say the real you, is that person behind closed doors, when no none is aware of your presence, when no one sees you. You face yourself, looking through the eyes of your mind.

image

Am I going to make it?
How will I do this?
What am I to do?
What’s the way out?
Alot of questions that beckons answers probe our minds. We search and search but yet seem never to find. Even if we did find it, it’s not good enough. What then? Are we doomed to continously live these?
No still, we weren’t fashioned for this. I believe we were created with the will. That part of our being that has the decission making power to withstand the darts that prick our mind. These dark moments are there, Certained!!! But we have the choice to think right.

image

There has been lots of societal pressure as well as work pressure, or still peer pressure, why not relationship pressure. Truth is we live handling pressures all around us. But yet we still stand tall!. We are stronger than what we think we are.
It’s your choice, to end up whatever way you want. We make the decision to be where we Wanna be in life. When it comes wrong, we make it right….That’s the beauty to life. That each time there’s a twist in the story line of our lives, we get a way to fix it. Remember we are actors,  we make things happen!!
We have been smashed down, but we’re not destroyed. It’s just for a moment. We may be living at constant war within that breaks us, but it’s only at the broken points where we become stronger!

image

Life gives us so many punches that we get to forget the easier and sweeter part of life. Dwell on the things that make you happy. Prepare for the battle because, they will always come! Appreciate the best times. Be thankful for life, when it throws you stones, use them to harvest fruits…

Look at where you are!!!

We never know how strong we are till we face challenges…..we never know how far we have gone till we look behind and catch a glimpse of where we were. Only then will we better appreciate where we are. It doesn’t suffice to say you’ve tried and nothing’s done. In your little efforts lies the step for change.

The beauty about life is not living to overcome all difficulties. It is to live to see another day you know nothing of, conquering and losing but yet gaining lessons on being a better you. Good things happen for a reason and so does the bad. But whatever be the case, we need to self appreciate where and who we are.

Life is a journey. This means we decide to move ahead or backward or not to move at all. The very reason you live is a proof that you cling to hope. Hoping that your tomorrow will be greater than today.

A living dog is better than a dead lion. You have come this far to give up. Hang in there!!!

Lots of love❤❤❤🌸

Not what you have but who you have

Today February 14th, the world celebrates love. In my country Cameroon it is characterised by exchange of gifts between loved ones, friends, and family. Its such a beautiful scene to see……when love is expressed.

People were meant to be loved and things used…but the reason for the many problems we encounter in life today is because, things are loved and people used.

Love is a beautiful feeling. Always unexplainable….but magical😊….. Everyone has a definition of Love based on how it made them feel. Its important we note its not possessions that actually matters but how many people you got in your life, with whom you can share your pains…they feel it….share your laughter, they join in…. Those who understand your silence.

The greatest legacy we have is the people we got in our lives….and if ever the world celebrates love…..it goes out to all who sacrificed for us….even those who didn’t

Its a usual norm to love those who love you in return…. But actually true love is not proven when you love someone who loves you in return…..it goes loving someone even when you are angry and feel like not doing so.

I’ll learn not to count how many people love me..but how many I have loved!!!

Enjoy your day💜💛💚💞

You are Beautiful (Part II)

Hit by the many waves of life, languishing in tears over loved ones gone, feeling broken due to broken trust, feeling helpless when in need of help…….are the one and one too many despairs and painful moods and feelings we often find ourself in daily. But all these do not amount or cannot be compared to the wonderful AND beautiful person that you are.

You, standing there, though with tears of pain lurking in your eyes, still have the power to make the decision and choice to live.

Lately, a lot has happened to me…. A lot both good and very saddening…. I have lost someone so dear to me. Someone so important in my life….And here I am again, starring into the deep vacuum left in my heart. Truth is, we gain, we loose. But no matter where you find yourself, the ultimate is, you are still standing….right there with an ounce of hope in heart♥. 

So in this season of thanksgiving, I choose not to stare at the confusion mix problems I have lying ahead of me. I choose to stare at the wonderful memories I have.

The creates place of investment is not in your assets. But in yourself. When you invest value into your life, you don’t need someone else’s approval of being the best. You know you are.

When I stumbled on this quote today, I learnt that happiness is not achieved from the outside but from the inside. Letting go, though it seems as the hardest decision to make, is the best. Because sometimes, holding on gives us more and more pains.

Let go of anything that makes you feel less worthy and start cultivating those things that add value to your life. You are beautiful, unique, different and loved.

It all depends on you how you want your Story to be told. Make it worth while.💚💛💜🌸

Who Am I?

A question we all ask ourselves at that point, when we seek to know more of our identity…….There’s a lot of work that has been made on your life. There’s a lot of investment done to produce the wonderful person that you are. Time has been invested. Years have done and gone with each passing day filled with experiences out of which you have been forged.

I told and reminded myself over and over again, who I was and who I am. Beacause its not who you were that matters, but who you are. Born in a family of 6, I was the 6th and last child of my mum. Few months to my delivery I lost my mum. When I was five months old. And for some reasons I can’t understand, my dad left us.

These were the most detresssing times of my life I remember. Growing up with my uncle, who acted as a father figure in my life, gave me strength. I had lost confidence in myself. When I was aged 9, i learned of the hidden truth from my uncle. Then, I could see children with their parents, the love they felt and encouragement they got and……..I looked at myself and wondered why my dad left me and mum left me too. My brain couldn’t process that at all.

I began learning to self encourage myself. My uncle then was too busy with work to feed the family. I learnt to be self dependent at a very tender age. To make do with what I had, and what I couldn’t have, I could only hope to have it someday. I feared failure because I knew the pains my uncle will get through in helping me. I found myself trying almost to avoid it.

That as who I was!!!! only a fraction of what I went through though. But my past are flames out of which I am forged. It made me beautiful today

And today, I do not rely on the pain causing parts of my past. I rely on the strength it gives me. I am strong lady, resistant, determined, focus and brave. Oh yes! No one did it, but my pain made me so. Times came when I cried out my eyes. But after doing so, I usually wipe off my tears, pick up the puzzle pieces of my life, and fit them together again.

Where I felt love lacking, I loved myself. Do not wait for others to love you to find that satisfying love. If you can’t love yourself enough to improve on yourself, then, no one ever will.

Yes, i made a lot of mistakes but I never dwelt in them…… There were times and there are still, when I felt and feel like giving up. But I think again and bounce back on my feet. This is who I am. No longer afraid of making mistakes..😊… When I make them, its my duty to set them right!

To better appreciate who you are….remember who you were! Let time and God be the sole factor that ameliorates your person. I asked myself this question. Its time to Recycle your broken past. Now is your turn. Who are you?

Love u all💜💜
