It’s all about Courage!


See Frances’ previous interviews for issue 1 & 2 here. Tell us about the specific inspiration behind one or each of your accepted pieces. “…And it dawned on me” was written at a time when realization hit me that no matter how hard I try, some things, situations and people won’t change. So it’s up […]

#WeekendTreat -Love vs Maturity


https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/ac/7b/97/ac7b97d183b9eff7a70fbbed947a649e.jpgSo much has happened today and it has got me thinking…again. Why do we fight needless battles? I always say “I won’t do battles without spoils”. I know when we hear ‘spoils’, we tend to think of trophies, cups and medals. But sometimes, SPOILS are letting go and being the ‘loser’. So this is where I ask myself and ask you too – would you rather have peace in your world/heart or a trophy gathering dust on your shelf. Think about it.

It’s okay to stand your ground and maintain just so the other person knows there’s more to you than meets the eye, I have that ‘craze’ in me too, but to what end? There’s so much hatred and uncooked beef (grievances) around us already, let’s try in our own little way to spread peace and show love. It makes you more matured than you know. Remember, silence pays off too! Proverbs 17:28 says Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. (KJV) and Proverbs 12:17 continues “Fools have short fuses and explode all too quickly; the prudent quietly shrug off insults.” (MSG).

So what would you rather be called?

#LyricalMonday – …and it dawned on me!


Sometimes, we need to let go of things, systems (that are no longer working) etc. I know I was talking about relationship here, but when you look at life generally, you will discover that this applies all-round.

An awakening will set you on the part to freedom…look inward and around you, it just might be the TIME TO LET GO! You are better than this, if you didn’t know, I’m affirming it today.

Tuesday Thoughts


Tuesday Thoughts_190515
Making decisions should be done after careful thinking. My decisions today were taken in the interest of National and World Peace and for sanity’s sake…hehehehehe. But that’s the truth! Not like I made those decisions today o! Deciding to share it with you is what is new. I believe that our daily living should revolve round improving on what we are doing already so in the end …like the onions, there’s another layer waiting to be discovered. I will stop there, if you want more, tell me about your own decision(s). I’m waiting.
