On Light and darkness by from M.L. King Jr


 Light and darkness lesson from M.L. King Jr

I have always loved this quote.

Hence, when I came across it today on my friend and brother’s blog: Vincent Egoro of course, I couldn’t help but share it with you all.

What do ya all think?

Sometimes…


This is a Beautiful Quote.

I decided I would not only step outside of the person I’ve been, but I will share it with the world to inspire whomever, in my journey to being who I want and who I actually am!

Thank yoy BeAutiFul Life for this!

Be The Best Of Whatever You Are!


We are all definitely so powered up for 2014 as I see it, and I am sure it is because we want to be our Best!

Vincent Egoro

If you can’t be a pine on the top of the hill.
Be a scrub in the valley-
but be The best little scrub by the side of the rill;
Be a bush, if you can’t be a tree.

If you can’t be a bush, be a bit of the grass.
And some highway happier make;
If you can’t be a muskie, then just be a bass-
But the liveliest bass in the lake!

We can’t all be captains, we’ve got to be crew.
There’s something for all of us here.
There’s big work to do and there’s lesser to do
And the task we must do is the near.

If you can’t be a highway, then just be a trail.
If you can’t be the sun, be a star;
It isn’t by the size that you win or you fail
– Be the best of whatever you are!

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?

Always…


Vincent Egoro

    Ignore those who say you cannot do it.
    Ignore those who don’t believe in you.
    There is only one you, and there are billions of people who are waiting for you to express your genius, and “live your greatest life”.

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?
