So this a spontaneous post. Today is my birthday and a couple of my friends and family have put up my picture on their statuses. This is really nice and I appreciate it…. But, most of those pictures have made me cringe. Do I need to be anointed to take better pictures? Either I am …

Everyday is a battle for me in my mind. Sometimes I want to throw in the towel and fail gallantly. Yes fail gallantly! Because I am tired of being worried. Worrying does funny things to my stomach and my heart begins to thump against my chest rather than beat. It makes me feel sick and … Continue reading Fighting for Today.
I remember seeing a program on television. It was about a couple of women who were doing big things and amazingly, there were all good friends or so they said. The program however built in me a desire to have friends who are doing well in whatever path they have chosen in life. I want … Continue reading Support your Friends

I get scared of trying something new. I literally feel a weight as heavy as a rock at the bottom of my belly. And the basis of my fear? “Well ,I don’t want to make a fool of myself” Why am I even writing this?Because I remember I have never travelled by air. The one … Continue reading I Have Never Travelled by Air.
Immediately the first period of lecture was over, the lecturers declared a 30 minutes break and I joined the eager number of bored students who quickly rushed out of the the lecture theatre. In my case, I was so hungry all I could think about is where to eat and what to eat. I randomly … Continue reading You know my name?
WHY I LOVE BLOGGING.
I am a big fan of WordPress. I love the fact that you don’t have to be a professional writer or author to be able to express your self or share your views.
I admire the wide viewership it provides too. A post could travel through the globe and even though the post might not be declared an international bestseller, the post has the capacity to reach out to people to inspire ,or simply share the feeling of being able to relate to the situation being talked about.
STARTING RIGHT HERE
Enough talk about WordPress. Instead I want to talk about how its important that we start from where we are are. Often times, we want to wait till we are something substantial before we start a journey of growth.
Preparing for my bar finals has taught me that I don’t know how much I know until I have tested yourself especially when I answer past questions. Life could be like that too, it would not give you a certificate of perfection to venture into something, be it a business, or blogging in the instant case. But you might need to step out of your comfortable cocoon of knowlege and ACT!
I have noticed a common trend among blogs I have had the opportunity to read.
A lot of those blogs have evolved let’s scratch that, it’s the bloggers who have evolved and it’s only natural that it reflects in the content of the blog.That’s because starting something gives us a chance to grow.
You might discover that you don’t want to write about what you initially started the blog for or just the fact that a phase is over!
Sometimes it might take longer to know what you want the blog to be about but as time goes on you begin to narrow it down because some things interest you more than others.
For me I basically just write what I think about. I am more of an observer so it means I could be pretty abstract or see life in terms of theories and that’s what I write about.
My Bloom Journey
During one of my posts, one amazing blogger ,God’s Kid Speaks made a comment on on my post and it actually showed me what this blog was about (You should go check out her blog. She’s amazing).
I began to see that what I do is document my growth journey. Although I am quite private so it’s lacking in practical experiences.
My physical life feels pretty boring. I am a social late bloomer( maybe I would gist you about that later). I read and enjoy conversations with friends with whom I share the same value. I could easily lose myself in a day dream and you know what that means… I basically live in my head.
So while it might seem like I write in abstract terms, it’s basically what’s going on in my head!
But one thing I have also noticed is I am beginning to get open to sharing my experiences, I admire people who do that but I also realise I don’t have to force it. Its awesome when you open up because it helps people relate to what you are saying. It makes us share that awesome Bond of humanity not minding our race and colours.
Well I have been writing about blogging on WordPress but I also like to relate a concept to other things.
I would relate this to life in general. Where you start might not be the end, you will evolve and grow through it. Don’t wait for a perfect time, or when you think you have a story to tell or have a particular amount of capital to start something.
Most people who have made a big deal of their life’s have had to start from a place of low capital or resources. But they had their eyes on the goal and they grew through their imperfections and mistakes and the accompanying pain and disappointment.
I would end this piece with one of my favourite quote
You are simultaneously a masterpiece and a work in progress.
KEEP BLOOMING ❤️Continue reading “A Good Place to Start is Here and Now.”
I love reading books but novels especially. Stories and imagination holds a certain appeal for me that I cannot explain. I have read an uncountable number of books over the years. In fact I pick novels over movies. It’s my way of relaxing. I am always fascinated with people and their stories. I have come … Continue reading Not So Ordinary
