An exceptional week in Accra Ghana does so much to me


Hello world,

Wow wow wow. I am currently on my way back to my country Cameroon after spending a week (5 full days lol) in Accra Ghana. Accra is a big hustle and bubble commercial city in Ghana, and seriously could be a mini version of Baltimore MD hahahaha.

So, I was there officially for a 3 day orientation into the university of Lancaster as a Commonwealth Scholar, doing an MSc in something lol

Well, y’all should know by now am an #areagirl and when I globe trotte, I make the most of my trotting hahahaha.

I tried my best in Accra, indeed the same minute I landed I followed my host straight from the airport to town for some errands they had. We looked up my stuffs in the booth as I had insisted – why be dropped off at any home?

I generally don’t love living in ‘high rise’ areas like where my school was, nor in homes which feel more like prisons hahahahaha. I am freedom and love, and wish to go wherever and whenever – well I kept remembering what I was officially here for too o.

Another highlight of my trip was FOOD. I was advised to make my trip an ‘operation eat all you can’ because I had lot so much weight, and my cousin hosting me said she was putting me on a ‘1day/1kg’ diet. Both at home and school, AWWWWWWW Food Food Folly lol

I did make a lot of new friends, classmates and some blogger sister from World Pulse. We were so happy.

And yes, I had so much fun gallivanting an regaining my groove to be made up, swavy, sexy and good to go feeling funky hahahaha

You know, as in YOLO – You Only Live Once, I am doing the 4 Ls wherever I am. I live, I love, I laugh and I learn.

I am so grateful for this opportunity, and for all the Angels on my path during the trip. I return home filled from all angles you name them, and yes I was a good student after all hahahahaha

Life Jacket Vs Diving in to save: Which would you prefer?


Hello world, I am on some reflections trajectory in my life recently and this month as I put on my bathrobe, the above question came to my mind.

I am sharing the post I wrote on Facebook with you all, who knows who has a thought on that or some reflection to share too right?

Do have a great day, here is the link: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1462769327198200&id=100003954406995

Special Book Review: The Story of my Life – A beautiful Soul in Hell


Pre script: It’s been so long I reviewed a book, not because I am no longer reading books, but I just sort of ‘graduated’ from doing them? Hahaha. But here is a book, a scintillating autobiography as she calls it, I hope my review does it some justice. Read on or click the link to watch my live video on Facebook reviewing same o

I am an author, and I thought my first memoir was sizzling; well I have read a scintillating autobiography and all I have for the author is respect.

I first met Thatcher Nshan in 2006 in MTN CAMEROON, and we connected on Facebook a year or so ago. I celebrate her for all she is, all she does, and all she will keep doing both directly and indirectly in the mighty name of Jesus Amen

The memoir is one I couldn’t put down just like that, took me 2.5 days to read because I had other things to do lol

She tells us some about her childhood and her dreams which I am sure many of us girls and ladies can relate to. One of those is getting married to the love of her life. Yes, that was mine too.

It starts getting zigzag from there. Sometimes, when you are shielded a lot growing up, once on your own only God’s Grace can keep you grounded. Psalms 23 is no joker, she went through not one but several valleys of the Shadow of death. Let’s look at some in bullet points ok, I am no spoiler – get a copy from her at 5k

1) A very love infested but toxic Relationship with Ekwe…the abuse she got which almost turned her too into a murderer wow…on Facebook she doesn’t seem to tell her readers all;
2) Numerous affairs with Married Men to the point of wondering if there ain’t a spirit in her which attracts them to her or vice versa;
3) A boy toy or toy boy (whichever) affair which has such a twist even I who once had one, felt like a novice – these things are real and although I wouldn’t call the boys toys, I think it’s time we acknowledge that age ain’t no barrier in love;
4) The obsession with getting healed or delivered from both physical and suspected spiritual infirmities which take her to all sorts of houses (both God and Satan ones) with the apex being to the Synagogue in Naija not once but twice. Read that book to find out more;
5) And just when you think you have read it all…the Desire Saga sets in and the scam she is dealt by a prospective husband (they were already fiance and she lived with his twins even long after that scam – God bless her), oh my goodness some people dine with the devil FULLSTOP. This landed her in jail ah I forgot about first taking her through the psychiatric ward of the Laquentinie hospital in Douala.
There is a volume 2 I hear, I mean the story of her life is one good for a movie.
I pray she finds the deliverance, Healing and Love of her life she is still hoping for Amen
Young girls o, please do yourselves a favour get this scintillating autobiography and review your own lives before it’s too late. At least, through it all, she has her two beautiful and graceful children, one a miracle because science had said no way you can have a child again… arghhhhhhhh MAG you didn’t have to spoil it now
Ok read volume I and watch out for volume 2 which will detail her prison(s) experiences

How do you live your life?


Muse with MAG: How do you live your life?

 

 

 


When I had settled down into my own home with my boys, and gone for that turning point and amazing 3 days spiritual retreat, I went on my knees and said my personal prayer over and over again. I begged the Lord to give me a sentence on how to live my life henceforth – one I will be centered by and will not consciously depart from. You know, serenity and discernment were already my watchwords, my mantra in doing all things was already embodied in my 3Ds of Determination, Discipline and Dedication to which I later added the 3Ps of Passion, Purpose and Productivity in 2017, but I needed a sentence which could as well reflect how I was already living, but which could remind me that was how I should continue. And I stumbled upon it in a book. Oh how I love reading. I saw the 4Ls in a book 3 years after I started praying for that sentence, the year in which I turned 40 ie 2019. How symbolic right? Here we go: I live, I learn, I laugh, I love…repeat….And it works…in every situation I am faced with, I gradually repeat this sentence to myself, looking for ways to live through it learning, laughing and loving. I mean, how else would I want to live my life? I don’t know about you, but seek and you shall find. It could take such patience and of course continuous living in the meantime lol…like God wants to watch how you are already doing it, and then He will direct you to where you’ll find that it is you seek. Remember He gave us a free will, I want to think that’s why He just doesn’t impose it on us? Anyways, to each their musings

Wow news as am featured on World Pulse


Oh yes world,

Somebody is doing what she love: writing: and she’s getting featured on the one and only World Pulse now.

https://www.worldpulse.com/en/voices-rising/stories/cameroon-spite-fractured-girlhood-we-made-it

It is a wonderful feeling and it’s been a 5 years journey to World Pulse to begin with. I mean, what was I even waiting for to start blogging there?

Don’t give up on whatever you are at, there is time for sowing and time for harvesting. Above wowing at the honorarium I wasn’t expecting, I am wowing at the opportunities this affords me…

With so much gratitude I wish everyone all the best

The break did fly while so much happened oh my…


Oh my blogosphere, I an’t believe two weeks have already flown by. I took a blogger break on the 5th of November and oh the stuffs which have been happening to and with me, ha I don’t know where to resume from o.

I have been in top form, I have started lecturing again and baam I have an all ladies class and am so excited, I have progressed with my therapy practice and got some new clients, am getting more grounded about my entrepreneurship journey as well as the future of my association Hope for the Abused and Battered. I mean, I even got the visa to go to the UK afterall, so am planning on going in February when it’ll be less cold I pray.

Let me save the last and best for another post – but it is huge – two writing selections – one of my best poem and the other of… argh I already let part of the cat out of the bag lol

Ok have a great week everyone, it’s so nice to be back. I have to actually get back into full blogging groove again – dunno if those blogging breaks help for real or not – but I can swear anytime I do love me my blogging…and yes we are all good over at Our Home Inc…actually took in another son

Hmm seems Facebook Juju got my moral values & co too right lol


My Moral Codes

Now, for those who don’t about Facebook ‘Juju’, it is those links which you see every now and then asking you to take a ‘face reading’ sort of, by their ‘mediums’ lol. I mean what can I tell you other than that yours truly has been taking some of those ‘face readings’ and the results are quite impressive?

Last Wednesday I shared some, when announcing a ‘huge social project’ in the pipeline. It’s all about keeping the Hope alive in myself and humanity.

So ‘Facebook Juju’ not only got the moral values right, but also something about what people notice the first time they meet me, and em also that am someone special lol

Now, I wish I had those links saved so I could share for someone to maybe go try their luck? Would that be wrong to do? I don’t really know o. I am however happy with my results – and o that were free face readings hahaha. Sometimes your mental wellbeing gets some boost from where least expected. These make me really feel like a princess.

Have a great weekend everyone

Life and love goes on in our hood


After my rant of yesterday and the meh feelings, I am happy to be on a great going today.

We did our meditation, starting again with a mini course for life. Those daily cards are simply epic. Such communion time with the team is more VIP to me than putting the home in order and etc etc.

I have said my serenity prayer over the missing lenses, and handed that over to my Almighty Father.

Indeed the day started on a very positive note and I feel fantastic.

Wishing us all a happy midweek and a day full of life and love all the way.

Healing is not an illusion but a possibility: My brother lives in me


 

Four years on, day for day since I got the call which shook me like no news had shaken me before.

My brother…whose brother? like I would say before starting a fight in your defense whether you were wrong or right.

I am so grateful for where I am in my healing journey and I know you are smiling at your ‘mama Ayo’ from deep within the clouds of our lives.

I can never say thank you enough Lord for letting me have my brother for 33 years, to love and learn from, and to share with in all ways I could. He is forever in my spirit anyway, so the death of the flesh could only hurt me this much now I conclude.

Healing is not an illusion dear all, it is a possibility if you get to looking beyond what you see; if you get to feeling beyond what you touch; if you get to listening beyond what you hear.

p.s: I will forever miss you Gaby, but I will forever feel you as you live on in my spirit – and in our hearts
