It’s my first anniversary in Belgium: Thank You all!


Selected for book cover

We surely all admit that transitions are challenging right? I have yet another evidence that they are but with steadfastness, we always survive…

I landed in Belgium on the 8th of January 2013 (but out of excitement I post about it today), and l was struck by two facts:

1) I just left my children and family oceans away and may not get to see them again in the nearest future – how sad l was!

2) The weather wasn’t welcoming at all and it was to say the least, trashing out my already fragile mood. It was -1° and it rained cats and dogs on that day!

I was depressed, poorly dressed, had no boots nor appropriate Jacket and above all, had very little and let’s say highly insufficient funds!

I started off badly in school and flunked woefully in one of my papers – well largely my fault, bad advice and lousiness thanks to my moodiness!

However, I got a lot of support too, both directly and indirectly. My Cousin in Austria even offered me opportunities and the other in Belgium tried her part too. My Family both home and abroad supported in their own way,   and I just can’t name it all!

l also meet my ‘Darling Darling’ and with his support and encouragement, coupled with my realization that l couldn’t keep up that low, l ‘springed’ back to Life.

I have since then braved it all in school, at my new home, and above all in my pursuit of a new career. I finally got hearing aids too.

l dared to dare and got myself jobs/internships in places like ICF-GHK a renowned consultancy, the European Parliament and the WIP Global Forum.

l met a lot of inspiring people both on and off line. My ‘e family’ is simply wonderful and they are growing both in quality and quantity each day.

My fondest statement of 2013 was when Portia Simpson Miller, the Jamaican PM said to me: “Relax Girl”. I couldn’t help but do a post about her as you can refresh here!

I met Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Dlamini Zuma of the AU and several other dignitaries, and I captured that week here.

I am finishing my first memoir which tells of my alter ego and my tough journey so far, albeit the emotional and spiritual one. You can read about my project here!

I ran a rally and got selected as a community champion for a UN Women facilitated platform for the Economic Empowerment of Women and 3 days ago I got another big Job offer!

Well, to crown it all, the internship I had which caused me some headaches and heartaches, but where I had a wonderful boss and decided to give it my best, has just landed me a confirmation.  I was just raised to Regional Manager for Africa!

For all the above, I say thank you to All, it’s been one big roller coaster ride for me and I wish my journey so far inspires, or what do you think?

Begin With Yourself: Nemo dat quod non habet!


Here comes 2014 and I find Jeff as powered as ever.
I continue with my tradition of starting my weeks with a reblog from Jeff and I am always thrilled there is one timely post in his blog, sort of ‘waiting for me’.
I will sure begin with myself Jeff, learnt that the hard way the only way but thanks to you and your posts, we can all start over and over again now each time we ‘bend’ or forget to how to ‘begin each new day with ourselves’.
Don’t we all agree with Jeff?

Are Your Passions and Career Aligned?


I didn’t know how to align my Passions and and Career or rather which one deserved my best.
I must agree it is often a tough choice to make or a challenge to work out. Yet it is worth every dime of our efforts and now Jeff blogs about it so nicely that we are further powered.
Thank you Jeff and I hope we all try a little more this 2014…

I was once told that whether I am doing something that expresses who I really am, or doing something just because it’s easy or available; the time will still pass. 24 hours in a day, 365 days a year; the clock is always ticking and going. Time will always moves forward, even if we don’t. I learned early on that my life, career and happiness are directly related to how I my time.

1, 5, 10 years from now, we can have a career that expresses our strengths and our highest commitments, or we could still be at the same job wondering what could of been. Either way, the clock continues to move forward.

It is not a race against time, but it is about using our time to build a life that expresses the best parts of us.

We are all so blessed to be living in this tremendous…

My Featured Publication – My Alter Ego!


I am who I am today, but I am the sum total of what I was yesterday.

I am definitely going to be so much more in the future but I have to credit my past in its entirety.

I am therefore publishing my first memoirs and in all honesty, I am proud to be doing so now more than ever – It is my BEST  Theraphy and I hope it helps more than it hurts.

My Mess is henceforth My Message and My Tests My Testimonies.

Stay tuned and Happy New Year to all!

This blog is to encourage others that is being victimize, been a victm, or were a victim that they no longer have to live in hidden. I want to share words of encouragement to them and let them know they can come out of their situtaion alive no matter what there abuser is telling or has told them over the years. Some individuals have left their abuser but they are still living in afraid or living in in jail mental; the victim have to get his or her life back. Living behind the wall in public isn't well for them. They have to make a stand for themselves and regain what they lost in that relationship. It will not happen within a week or probably a month. First of all its a learning process, admit to what they lost, and let go of the shame, pride, and bitter. Its up to the victim to want to be a Survior not the abuser.
