Women’s land rights are human rights, says new UN report


One of my first posts in my blog was on this very delicate topic:

I deem it delicate because we all know that especially in Africa and some third world countries, women were themselves treated like property

So how does property own property?

Well, the status-quo is changing and now there are policies and publications : http://bit.ly/1aSSQoI   which hitherto were unavailable and this to me is a great push. I always boast of the fact that my own Grandma was the first woman in her village to inherit property and this includes land from her own father. she was even the one to ‘succeed him’ a thing unheard of back then!

There may still be much more to do for Women’s land rights to be fully implemented and upheld as such, but the future isn’t bleak no more and I think we can all agree to that…

2) “Hm Ayo you think you can cope, this blogging thing is difficult oh and I had tried and failed woefully and with all the other things you are doing are you sure you can handle this?”

So judge for yourselves who was a great person here …

What it has taken me 33 years to learn


I remember telling my mother at age 33 (that’s 1 year ago) that I had learned so much in the past 3 years than I had in the first 30 years of my life. Well the statement was made in a particular context but sure we need to live on to learn more and acquire wisdom along the way – or rather …

-You can be funny and kind or funny and cruel. The second one is easier, but the first one is worth it.

-Dip the french fry in the Frosty. Go on, try it.

-Habit is a powerful force we forget about until it’s turned against us. Be careful which ones you create.

-You will remember the most embarrassing crap you do in your life forever and in perfect clarity. Everyone else will remember the kindest things you do. It all comes out in the wash.

-If you’re doing a remote podcast, it’s worth it to record audio locally and mix it together. Trust me on this one.

-You’re the only one who can let go of your grudges. It’s worth it, I promise. They’re not doing you any good.

-Doing the good, brave, kind things can feel silly if you let your internal critic get in the way. Reminder: No…
