When you think about what turns you on, and what attracts you to other people, what comes to mind? While most people will automatically have their mind turn to the way someone makes you laugh, or because they are down to earth, bla bla bla, there are those who do not focus on those components … More Sex Labels
Looking for exoneration,
Till I found the only liberation lives within.
Now, the plan is changed.
Put me back together.
Not for what the world gives,
But for the peace and joy that glows from within,
For the expressions of adventures to come.
I believe in me.
Putting the puzzles back together,
I’m putting myself back together. … More Put me back together
Caring . . .
It’s very important,
Like the power to heal,
Like a balm that soothes pain.
When a child feels reassured that someone cares,
An occasional a hug, a loving kiss
Prep talks of encouragement and lots of patience
Just to show that I really care. … More Caring . . .
Is it necessary for couples or intending couples to have “the talk”? In most cases, adults just go with the flow, shying away from addressing a lot of topics even when they begin to affect their relationship in some ways. No one just really wants to talk about the ‘not-so-good’ things that may be affecting intimacy in the relationship. Everyone just somehow wants to be fine with where the relationship is. … More “The Talk”

Imagine a baby who can’t speak but cries for every want – cold, hot, hungry, sleepy, wants to play, wants to be picked up, fighting sleep and the likes. No matter how much we want to calm a crying baby, it’s usually frustrating after trying many things and the baby is still wailing. That’s how unappreciative lack of expression can be. Hence a sudden reaction or responses thereafter will not be as appreciated as a constructive self-expression. It doesn’t necessarily mean that every thought, even anger, ought to be communication as they are but communication makes effort and situations better understood and appreciated. … More Lack of Expression kills Appreciation
Sustaining respect during the course of a relationship takes effort. We are all human, and if someone begins to treat us negatively, inconsiderately, and disrespectfully, we often tend to respond in kind. The pattern of mutual disrespect actually feeds on itself. The more one partner is rude and inconsiderate, the more likely it is the other spouse or partner will behave in similar ways. … More Respect: A key to successful relationship
Even when it seems like everything is going wrong in your life, there is always something that’s going right. You owe it to yourself to find out what that is and bring it into your awareness. No one will love you if you do not love yourself. No one will make you happy if you do not radiate happiness. No one can give you confidence if you don’t feel self-worthy. It’s not a matter of someday. You can make that choice to drop that low spirit and strive to have a brighter and happier life, because the more you focus on the good stuff, the more good stuff you find. … More Celebrate Everyday!
A famous Nigeria actress said, “The best gift you can give your child is the Word of God”. God did indeed give you these children for this time. You need to help them discover the secret in the Word of God that will take them to wonderful places, even beyond this world. Daily instruction in God’s Word is key in raising children in this age. The Word is very clear on men and women, marriage, sexual perversion, and right and wrong. There are so many teachings and personal opinions on the internet which can, quite frankly, get your mind twisted if you’re not even grounded in a Truth. If for the only reason that the Bible is a book of morals and ideals, then there is no harm in obeying to the letter, without additions or subtractions. It’s very clear on the hardening of hearts to the truth, and on fools being led astray. Read it with and to your children daily. Memorize passages. Explain how they relate to our practical times. … More Raising kids in a perverse generation
We spend so much time putting on facades for others. We pretend to be people we’re not. And when we try too hard to fit in, we lose ourselves often without realizing it. We all change with time, but we don’t always grow with time. Sometimes we take a couple of steps backward. We regress and turn into our younger, more immature selves. It happens but keeping these moments brief is also advised. Once you take some time to be alone and explore who you are, keeping in mind the person you want to be, you’ll get to know yourself again. You’ll come to realize what’s most important to you. You’ll also learn what’s trivial and disposable in your life. … More The longer you’ve been single, the better you’ll be in a relationship
