Part 17: Ẹ̀jìrẹ́ ará ìṣokún

The phone dropped suddenly from my hand.

“What did he say?” Mom looked at me, eyes wide open and filled with horror. I said nothing. “Omolade, what did the person say?” I said nothing. “Hello, hello”, Mother picked up the phone and spoke repeatedly into it but Dan had hung up.

I held my hands together to my ears and screamed. … More Part 17: Ẹ̀jìrẹ́ ará ìṣokún

Grow to love you

After all, you can’t love someone you truly don’t know exceptionally and no one is expecting you to open your heart to someone in one fell swoop anyway. It’ll all be part of the memories you’ll grow to appreciate as you age together. A healthy happy marriage is something you create, it’s not based on an emotion that arises out of thin air. The real reasons to love someone unconditionally are the ones you discover over time. The more you love someone, the more attractive they become. When you assume that love is just a feeling that just happens, you are always at the whim of it, rather than consciously creating it in your life. To love really is an emotional capability, not a sexual capability. … More Grow to love you

Keeping up with your distance relationship

Many people believe that long distance relationships are never going to work out. It’s not going to be easy as well because the extra distance makes many things unachievable. Things could get complicated, and you could get sad and lonely. However, the extra distance also makes the simplest things the sweetest like being able to hold the other person’s hand, eating together at the same table, feeling each other’s touch, taking a walk together, smelling each other’s scent. These small wishes could suddenly mean so much more in a long distance relationship. Long distance relationship does have to be tough but it has its own pitfalls too.  … More Keeping up with your distance relationship

FAQs before you say ‘I do’

How can I be sure I’m marrying the right person?
Well, I’m not going to sit here and play God and tell you I have the answer to this one but one thing I have learnt with experience is you have to be willing to observe objectively. When we are in love, the tendencies are we cannot make rational decisions because love has blinded our sense of logic and reason. We just want to be licensed to live with that ‘special’ person for the rest of our lives. If you are unable to be objective, trust one or two other people, your parents or siblings or those really close to you. Preferably those who have lived or known you from when you were little so that know what you can live with and what will eventually tear you apart. … More FAQs before you say ‘I do’

How does a moment last forever?
How does our happiness endure?

Love is beauty, love is pure

Protects, persists, and perseveres
And makes us whole

Still our song lives on

Flying without wings

Everybody’s looking for that something
One thing that makes it all complete
You’ll find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be

Some find it in their lover’s eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings … More Flying without wings
