MY HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE WAS TRYING TO TAKE ME OUT

 


I don't think I've shared with you guys before that I have a history of high blood pressure issues. In my case, it's hereditary and I've been dealing with it since my days in University. At first my mom didn't understand why I kept having dizzy spells, intense migraines and extreme fatigue in some cases. I may or may not also be dealing with thyroid issues but I'm not confessing that over myself any longer.

YOUR INSECURITIES ARE VALID BUT...

 


Your insecurities are valid but they do not determine how valuable you are. We all struggle with some form of insecurity or another and most likely will have to deal with them all our lives but that's just the price of being human. However, as believers, we do not allow those insecurities become part of our identity.

WHY WE HAVE TROUBLE WITH CONSISTENCY

 


In a recent post, I shared with you all that God had given me a word for August which was to be and stay CONSISTENT. Then I told you how He confirmed that word by leading me to a YouTube video where an instruction to consistently praise Him for 21 days had been given. If you haven't read that article yet, it's called  What I'm Hearing Here ( A Transformation Church Series) and I recommend that you check it out.

SOME LIFE SKILLS GOOGLE SAYS TO HAVE AFTER TURNING 40 & THE ONES I'VE PERFECTED

 

Turning 42 put some things into perspective for me like how I have actually spent 4 whole decades on this earth, like whaaat?? But more seriously, how lucky I feel to be at this age with no emotional baggage to off load or paralyzing responsibilities to handle. It may sound cliché but I feel the most content and settled this year than I've ever been and for that, my gratitude to God is endless.

FINALLY SEEING MYSELF AS THE IMAGE OF GOD

 


There used to be a time when I felt like the scripture in Genesis where God creates man in His own image was an abstract concept. For me "MAN" in that context was unrelatable and unfamiliar but as it turns  out, that MAN who God created in His image was and is ME! (and you of course). In lay man's terms, I am the spitting image of my Father; I have His features and mannerisms and am His physical human representation on earth!! WHAT A CONCEPT!!

WHY I STILL LIKE BLOGGING (EVEN THOUGH IT'S A FORGOTTEN ART FORM)

 

I remember when I discovered blogging for the first time. I somehow had stumbled on Patricia Bright's blog online at work and became instantly hooked. In Nigeria at the time, Linda Ikeji's blog was the biggest and only blog that drew in a massive amount of readers for its news and gossip, then Bella Naija followed carving its own niche in the lifestyle and wedding spaces. I was captivated by the way the art of writing and imagery came together to express creativity and thought. I immediately started researching any other blogs there could be and that's when I found fashion blogs like Style Pantry, Prissy Savvy, J'adore and many others that focused on healthy living, lifestyle and travel.
