I will be the keynote speaker at the first Women’s Speaker Experience in Cameroon


Public speaking for a woman in particular is an art and science to be mastered tactfully. I am still learning although I am far advanced in that domain and can now share my experience with other women. As a lawyer, a psychotherapist, a motivational speaker, an inspirational author, a lecturer, a social activist, founder of the association hope for the abused and battered, a Feminist and an etc, speaking in public is now the best tool I have to get my work done and pass my message across. One thing I know is that speaking isn’t only about opening your mouth or even showing up, no it can be said in several ways including through body language…I so love the concept and told Maestria to count me all in. It is indeed an honour to be a speaker at this maiden edition, right next to the dynamic, veteran trailblazzer artist and mama Annie Anzouer

.Approaching the international women’s day, what better way than to share and learn at such an experience? Join us and grab the few seats left. If you (or someone you know ) are or will be in Douala Cameroon, just follow the formalities on the flyer. It is definitely going to be an experience I can’t wait to show up for

Go MARIE it’s your birthday…


MAG (Marie – that’s me lol) turned 41 and had several Musings to share

Go MAGnectic it’s your birthday: Life it was said began at 40; so as I majestically climb the first staircase on the 4th floor, I should tell how great the life has been so far… hmmmmmm so much livelovelaughlearn, am ready for more o – God thank You

In 2013(My year of new beginings), my birthday was barely 10 days after I arrived Belgium and I was still dreading how I was going to survive or escape that place. I hadn’t started blogging too and was yet to meet my super super hero in March. The birthday was spent with my Angelique and her small family of 2 in a village called Zotegem.

In 2014 (My year of Faith), a year after I got to Belgium and was getting to feel more stable and real holistic love, I had been so emotional on my birthday and recorded a video which can be found on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPQM8kM0oiA

When I turned 36 in 2015 (My year of redemption), I wrote a blog article you could read following this link: https://marieabanga.wordpress.com/2015/01/18/36-course-in-36-years/

2016 (My year of Love) was spent starting to love myself so so much, I went to Kribi (a seaside resort in my country) for a weekend with the pgymees, and spent the birthday itself talking about love for self on a TV program. It was a low key year, I tried to love another but that wasn’t mutual and it hurt but I let go and went for a turning point 3 days spiritual retreat.

2017 (my year of gratitude) was an amazing year and my birthday was spent just being grateful with my boys. I wrote a blog reviewing some turning point stations of my life and other stuffs like previous birthdays too lol: https://marieabanga.wordpress.com/2017/01/18/its-my-birthday-reviewing-some-of-the-down-the-road/

On my 39th birthday in 2018 (My year of progress), I had the following 9 soul wishes: https://marieabanga.wordpress.com/2018/01/18/my-top-9-wishes-on-my-39th-birthday-will-be/

With all the above, I think I have been an excellent student in informal school and deserve a medal. Were I to add 4 more lessons to the 36th I wrote down in 2015 they’d be:
1) Be Patient, this is a vip virtue you don’t want to miss out courting all over and over again;
2) Be YOU – all others are not worth competing nor comparing with. While at it, keep striving to be the BEST VERSION EVER;
3) Keep being a life long learner, that’s the most yielding and wisest thing to do;
4) Never forget your source. My God, My Father, My Alpha and Omega, Mighty God I bow before thee Imela

Here is the link to the journal of a 7 days spiritual journey I did last year to usher in my new age as guided by my spirit. Who knows who can be inspired, it’s free download o https://drive.google.com/open?id=1cfbMALPiq5lgXhRBWCIPpFfKliNUkF1C

2019 was my year of Grace. So much grace amazing, living, loving, learning and learning all the way to and fro.

2020 is my year of GLORY, I know who I am…

Gratitude as an attitude all the way


Muse with MAG: Do you have an attitude of gratitude? (16.1.2020)

I DO! From as early as I can remember I have preferred being grateful than grumpy. And I came to to spend the night with my soul sister at the hospital, she was admitted for head hammers ( don’t know how else to quality such headaches which land you in hospital. Three days prior I visited her at her cozy home and we even sat on her bed gisting before moving on to her comfy sitting room to watch some TV show she likes. Last night, she was having a drip and a difficult time sleeping, while I was on her bedside and had my sports mat to lie on intermittently. This morning, I looked at that mat and said ‘am grateful I have you, and wouldn’t ever worry about the thickness of my mattress at home again’ and added lol to that. Well, I really mean in every circumstances we can find reason to be grateful an not grumpy. I am tired and need some sleep and if possible a massage, but am so grateful I could come spend the night with my darling before her family comes in this morning. Friends aren’t only to go hang out or spend money on/for each other. It had been years I spent such a night in a hospital with the lights on all night o hahahaha. To each their own appreciation of life o, just my musings. Have a Terrific Thursday world and may God bless us all AMEN.

Ushering in my 2020 with gusto, and you?


Hiya pals,

How are you ushering in your 2020? I was out last night and discovered anyone could sign up to go sing or intepret and song of their choice.

I signed up to go do “I wanna dance with somebody who loves me” by the diva Whitney Houston of fondest memories.

Here is to a 2020 of more dancing than crying

Light and love all the way

Movie Review: WOMAN by Goretti


Wow Happy New Year Blogsphere,

I almost thought I had given up blogging on wordpress lol.

But, when one of your heroines produces a movie with the single word WOMAN, you stay up at night and watch, and you watch it again in the office, actually binge watch on your both gadgets lol.

So, Goretti who I described a few years ago as shooting for the moon, released her epic movie WOMAN onto the world wide web.

Let me just share the description on the channel, while encouraging or even plead with you all to watch, share and why not leave a review too so it helps dem in their analysis and preparation for part 2 right?

Meet Angoh, Manga and Rachel, the three it took to tango. Angoh is the unsuspecting wife who gets blindsided by her sneaky husband. Manga is the husband, who likes to eat his cake and have it too. Rachel is the bitch we all like to hate, the home-wrecker, and the one who ‘stole’ someone’s husband or did she?
‘Woman’ poses the question that many of us refuse to consider. Should the blame be equally shared by all three or none?
Is this just another lame case of the very brain-washed rhetoric ‘He’s just a man, they are weak and prone to mistakes’ or should there be a renewed pride and dignity demanded by women to reject that kind of excuse?
Truth is, there is a different breed of women emerging from behind the shadows, they are called ‘Woman’ they raise their head in self-love and only lower their heads to admire the path upon which they walk.

Hey Tribe can you help my association get an award?


The Award screenshot

My association Hope for the Abused and the Battered has been nominated for an award – a prestigious award for philanthropy, and it’s a close call lol.

I am not going to stop breathing if my association doesn’t get the award, but it will sure be cool as a first award o. The Returnee is out to be the bridge between the diaspora and the people back home, while celebrating those who returned to the country and are making strides in one area or the other.

So, without writing too much, below is the link to vote, and the votes can be done daily until the 27th. Thank you all in advance.

RETURNEES AWARDS NOMINEES 2019!
