Life don’t always turn out like you planned
But these things are making me who I am
Now why, is this so hard to understand?
Since you’ve been away
I turned into a better me … More How I apologize
Life don’t always turn out like you planned
You know it
I also know it
Why our ways are getting separated
Even after going away from me
Stay in my memories

For one, the bride is not even British and every other thing that came along with that seemed to be overlooked and embraced. Perhaps, someone fought or had to fight the good fight of faith to have something so different be so gloriously celebrated.
In blessed memory of Princess Diana, she was her own strong personality the Monarchy had to crack. Bringing her passion for people and fashion into an environment with high walls of protocol and panache, she broke free for the likes of Kate Middleton and Meghan Merkle to have a smooth transition to being their own persons while adopting the royal styles. … More The Royal Wedding: Groundbreaking History
A man marries the girl of his dreams and then begins to wonder all his life what happened to that girl he knew before she became his bride and all other marriage struggles and circumstances happened to her. He fails to appreciate the evolution which has taken place just by being married to him too and then he gradually begins to get disappointed in his marriage. On the other hand, a woman marries a man who doesn’t quite fit the image of the Prince Charming she had dreamed of, and then worries all her married life why he is still the same imperfect person he was in their courting days. … More Man’s expectation in his woman
“If the fish and the bird falls in love, where would they live?” he asks her. “I’ve heard this is the irony of true love, pathetic. But with true love, we will change the course of our destiny and be happy for as long as we both shall live”. … More The fish who loved a bird
“Come with me my love and our fates we will cheat. Come to this enchanted place where the sea and sky meet.”
Ariyike turns around with a smile. It has been almost a month since she’s hoped to run into him again. Since the last time she didn’t meet him where she left him. She thinks she recognizes that voice. And she is right. It is him; her ‘unconcealed desire’.
“She smiles”, he declares, holding his hand over his chest in that way that reveals how relieved he is that she welcomes him this time. … More The fish who loved a bird
It’s so easy to take a look in the mirror and say to yourself, ‘the one who will marry me will be very lucky’. I’ve done it before. Well, I still think that the one who married me is lucky indeed but really, at first glance, I am very unassuming. I can cook, sew, mend, and care for babies. I’m patient, I’m kind and all those things a lot of people thought I was not when I was in Uni especially and afterward. They were probably seeing the surface side to me – the enigmatic beauty, and nothing more.
Men love that unattainable side to a woman. Well, that’s until they attain the woman and they look forward to the next unattainable “thing”. But what makes a man stay with a woman, perhaps, after that first mystery is unveiled? Beyond the beauty, carriage and packaging, should be a wife-material if you’re actually looking to be married sometime in the future. … More While you’re waiting for that Mr. Right,
Quitters don’t win and winners don’t quit, at least that’s what they say. So whenever I get discouraged, I look for that one excuse to hold on, hoping that perhaps there’s something there that will be worth my effort and steadfastness at the end of the day. A lot of pictorial messages say “it will end in praise” but does every story end in praise though? I suppose it depends on the perspective in which you look at it. Just because it hurts when it ends doesn’t mean it’s not for good eventually. Such is the situation when you’re convinced within yourself that it is time to move on in that draining relationship and say goodbye! … More It’s time to say goodbye
Now success is a very relative term. A writer who dreams of being successful may be of the opinion that until his/her book makes waves in the market and is able to sell out within a few weeks of publication, he/she hasn’t succeeded. Or perhaps another writer whose idea of success is to make life-changing impacts with the little readers his/her book can reach. Success is only measurable against the standard which we have set for ourselves. If what I want is to be a stay at home mom, then success will only find me on that level. But if what I want is to be the among Forbes’ top 100 most influential women in the world, then I have by myself raised the bar for which I will have to run with till the day I attend my dream. So it is safe to say while success may have started off as a journey, it comes to an end at a destination, except of course our success story is operations of some sort. … More What gives fulfillment?
Once at an interview, after I stated some of the challenges at my role at the time, one of the interviewers said to me, ‘I hope you know that this job won’t be any less challenging than what you are currently doing’. My answer was emphatic – ‘I don’t expect any less’. … More With more money comes more responsibilities
