Love More. Hate Less


Hi everyone,

It feels so good to be writing again after a long period of break. My deepest gratitude to every one of you who sent their goodwill messages and prayers, I am humbled by your kind gestures and God bless you all. I’ve got a lot to talk about and little by little I would share them all with you guys. I had a lot of experiences these past few months, some left me anxious, some left me puzzled and drained, while others left me grateful. Above all, I learned not to be too hard on myself. I learned to see my mistakes as opportunities to be better rather than use them as excuses, and that there’s nothing one cannot achieve as long as we don’t give up. I was ready to try everything even though I knew I could fail. Giving up nor giving in just wasn’t an option and that kept driving me to the end. I learned that the prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets, the prettiest eyes have cried the most tears, and the kindest heart have felt the most pain.

We are all walking contradictions and the real relationships are the ones we can make mistakes and forgive yourself. You can’t undo the past, all you can do is face what’s ahead, maintain your growth while rebuilding the character. Your passion and drive will get you to your success but it takes the right character to remain there and thrive. As long as you remember that a human is fallible, you share the same future, then you can learn to forgive, live in peace and stop being hard on yourselves.

Sometimes when we fail it doesn’t mean we didn’t try our best. You can’t give what you don’t have, neither can you lose what you never had. So, love yourself, be kind to yourself, forgive yourself. Don’t beat yourself up, don’t run so fast and still end up losing. Don’t be scared of seeing what’s next and end up burying your head in the sand. It is not the safest place to be in ( you can ask the ostriches.. lol)

You can have all knowledge and understand all secrets, you can have all the faith needed to move mountains..but if you have no love, you are nothing. You can only love yourself when you quit trying to stop being human and continue to be hard on yourself. Look how far you’ve come and filled with love and all the endless possibilities within your grasp. Whatever you do, be happy and quit being hard on yourself.

Love and Blessings.

    1. I am doing great 🙌. “How is you”- this line reminds me of an amazing woman named Jenifer, here in Nigeria. She’s very fond of that line and it makes me laugh.
      Thank you for making me laugh. 😍

  3. Welcome back! You have been missed. Yes….be kind to yourself and cut yourself some slack. The world will be hard enough on us without us adding to it.
    It can be hard realizing that who God made us to be, is exactly who we should be….. and it is good enough.

  4. That is a very important truth that we all need to practice daily. It’s not always easy. I still beat myself up about stuff, but the thing I have learned is the more time you spend in the present the less likely you’ll be tempted to look to your past to fix your problems. That’s a hard truth to realize. It was for me. I was telling my mom that I don’t like to talk about the past. I will look and learn from it, but I want to move forward. It’s important. Thanks for this beautiful piece and this beautiful truth. We can all learn from each other. We just need to allow ourselves to do so and not be so hard ourselves like you said. I love that.

    1. Thanks, a lot for your wise words. We only grow when keep dragging the past into the future, be dreadful of the future. Happiness begins when we live in the present and forgive ourselves and those who may have hurt us.
      ❤❤
