My mind's all over the place...gbami Olohun!

If I keep on saying “I need a vacation”,” I need a break”, I need a holiday”, the pressure’s just too much”, I need to breathe”. I need to get away from here for a little while”…It will seem like an excuse. But that’s just the plain truth..”I need a break from all of these mounting pressures every single day. I just don’t see any other way around it. I’ve made two mistakes I shouldn’t have made at the office, without even realizing it for over a week until now. Am not even sure how serious the damage is. But it appears to be reversible. Just a longer route and extra money to be spent on our side.


This of course isn’t the first of recurrent incidents lately, where I’ve been distracted. My mind’s all over the place and I have suddenly become incredulously forgetful. Am not saying I’ve got the memory of a genius. All am saying’s that it’s very unlike me to forget important things, be continually distracted. But it’s happening and I know it’s time for a ‘real break’. That wish seems to be farfetched because I can’t have anytime to myself. That’s what happens when you’re a mother of two kids, hyperactive (with a Capital “H”) and a demanding entrepreneur as a husband. It’s a long walk from ‘me-time’. But I’ll still keep hammering that I need a break. Who knows, I may just be fortunate to get one (with the kids tagging along of course)….
Honestly,I don't really feel good right now.Plus the medication am taking's just giving me funny side effects..drowsiness,dizziness,slurry speach and I still get sleepy after waking up...Thought this was supposed to make me feel better..Well,I guess it is..as am sleeping longer and still feel like sleeping again,after waking up from seven hours'sleep.Is this really me or has someone else taken over my body?

Homeland crises...

I shouldn’t have to struggle to put down the words, I was almost blank for a second there. The thoughts of our homecountry weighed heavily on my mind and I just couldn’t help but make a personal supplication for God to see us through. It isn’t just about the fuel price inflation, but so many ills inherent in the system. Don’t get me wrong, am not preaching for Shari’ah as a legal system, but at least a fair governance of the acclaimed ‘Democracy’ we say we’ve got. So much for government of the people by the people and for the people”! It is so sad to see that people can be so obsessed with power, money and authority, forgetting where they are coming from. I mean these politicians are just ordinary humans like you and I, who have been privileged to attain their status, fairly or by fraud. The question is, how can they close their eyes to the sufferings of the people? Are they also not humans who one day would be swallowed by earth, irrespective of wealth or status? Others have gone and …

The che@ting spouse...

The subject of infidelity in marriage is as inexhaustible as your mind can travel .It is something that those who have been hurt and emotionally damaged from its consequence which they understood. Attempts are made to correct this anomally , that has become second to nature.As a matter of fact, it has been concluded that,because men are “polygamous by nature,there can be no man content with a single woman. Ironically or should I say paradoxically however,this submission has every inch of hypocrite in it. Why?Because they would rather a man keeps a side kick,than actually do the lawful thing of taking another wife, or 3 or 4 as our own faith has permitted.
Cheating happens for various reasons, could be emotional,physical ,you’d be surprised-mental and so on. Also,either of the spouses can cheat. What is prevalence (without statistics reference now),is men being most likely to cheat. The major difference however is that, women are more likely to cheat for emotional reasons than men are.…
