 Do you know that there are valuable lessons heartbreak can teach you? 

I opened my Twitter app and it was the gist of heartbreak that was flying around. Twitter is the only app that things you least expect will not only trend, but also get people talking and sharing their experiences. I read a lot of heartbreaking stories till I could no longer read. While some were painful so much that I could feel the pain through my phone, some were just weirdly funny. You’ll be surprised at things people can do for love.

I bring you words of encouragement after months of battling discouragement myself!
I know I owe you an explanation of where I went. A lot of things happened which I might not be able to share now but instead, I’ll apologize. I’m sorry. If you subscribed to my newsletter then you should have gotten my apology note. If you’re not, do well to subscribe now. I’ll share more stuff and it might be limited to my email list or they get to read it first.

Words of encouragement at odd times

Just wondering, have you ever had people come to you for words of encouragement just when you feel discouraged? If not all, I could bet that most of us have been in such a position. Recently, I’ve found myself relating to people’s struggles, giving them advice, and sharing their burdens with them while I’m silently battling some stuff.
‘You give the best advice’
‘You have the rights words for every time I’m stuck’
‘You are a lifesaver’
… and so much more are reviews people give me every time we have discussions.
Why do I always have the best words for people but I still don’t have my own shit together. I mean, I should actually be living the reality of the advice I give to people. Well, it’s unfortunate that we find it easy to point others in the right direction. This time I had to help myself since I needed to feel better badly.

It’s okay to feel discouraged

One thing I have found out is that every time I listen to people’s experiences, share mine, and also give advice, I always find them applicable to my life.
Since it worked for me, I thought to share it with you too.
It’s okay to feel discouraged. This was one reality I had to accept.
We all feel discouraged at some point in our lives and that’s okay even though I struggled to come to terms with this. I mean, life is not a bed of roses. Life does not always work in our favor and it’s a hard truth to believe. Things happen and we are physically, mentally, financially drained and we just wish for a miracle. When that miracle does not happen, it feels like everything is over. I get it too.
This pandemic has even made it worse but I’m here to tell you that it gets better.

Words of encouragement to motivate you

Have you ever reasoned that life is the way it is just so that we can appreciate the good times while still learning from the bad times? Think about it!  Sometimes you need to feel weak for you to be strong. Your failures, while they do not define you as a person, determine your success.

But how do you get back on track? You need to have support and encouragement. You need to be surrounded by people and things that can serve as your pillars in overcoming whatever life throws at you. That’s why this post is for you.

Encouragement means instilling courage – a brave act that is sometimes more compelling and effective than motivation. Words of encouragement can help you think straight and get back on your feet. They are not just for you to ponder on, but for you to use. They worked for me and so can they work for everyone – anytime, anywhere.

Here are some words of encouragement to help you get by

Some people say that you will never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. Perhaps this is true. We only realize that we are strong when we stumble upon challenges in life, and there is no other way to overcome these challenges except to become strong and face them with all might.

Everything you need to accomplish your goals is already in you. It always seems impossible until it is done. Soon, when all is well, you’re going to look back on this period of your life and be so glad that you never gave up.

Hey fighter, soon things will be brighter. You’re allowed to scream, you’re allowed to cry, but do not give up. When the world says ‘Give up!’, listen to the whispers of hope, ‘Try one more time.’ This, too, shall pass. Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

“Life is very interesting. In the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths.”– Drew Barrymore

Whether you are going through a major problem in life or merely losing confidence in yourself, sincere and uplifting words of encouragement will undoubtedly improve your perspective in life. I hope this post did just that for you. I hope your face is brighter than it was before you read this blog post. If it is, share with me your thoughts in the comment section. You should share this post with your friends too, I’m sure they will appreciate it.

With love,

Do you know how to deal with disappointment? Have you ever experienced disappointment? Would it be weird if I said disappointment is a normal thing to experience as long as there are expectations? If there’s one thing that is certain that a person would experience before death no matter how good life is to the person, I’ll say it’s disappointment. This could happen in several ways and at different phases of a person’s life.

Do you know that to change your life, you also need to change your environment?

This post is inspired by the fact that many people are willing to have a better life. In fairness to them, they try so hard but all their efforts are frustrated. They end up feeling like losers. Nobody deserves to feel that way. Not even when you are trying. What then could be the problem? Could they be doing something wrong?

It is painful that we find it very easy to lose our uniqueness and originality in a bid to find acceptance. Often time, we can’t take a stand outside what other people think because we are scared of losing them. Worse still, we go all the way to change what we look like, how we talk, how we dress, how we think to suit what other people think it should look like. It’s painful to watch this happen.

Since we love to relax things a bit on Fridays, I thought we should play the never have I ever game here. What do you say? Even if you say no, we are playing the game and you will participate. Yes, it is by force o.

So I thought I would come up with something else for today but then I saw a post on Instagram that triggered this post. You see all these things that some people refer to as basic, some of us have never experienced them in our lives. There’s no shame at all in this, it was before that I was not proud to say them but now ehn, no shame o. Maybe my anon will even read this post and help me, lol.

Wondering how to increase your level of productivity? I won’t even lie, it has not been easy. I’ve heard people say that blogging is easy because I publish three times a week. So many messages come in from people telling me that I must really have the passion and that’s why I’m really consistent. While some ask if I’m a robot, others ask if I use something to induce my productivity. Let me not deceive you, passion is not enough to keep you consistent. Some went as far as asking me if I’m chasing anything or if anything is chasing me. Lol… Nothing is chasing me, it was just a decision I made to show up for you every time that I need to show up.

This month, we are on a journey to fully crushing procrastination.

Hello there, happy new month. I’m glad you have journeyed with me for three months. Thank you.

Please don’t stop.

We are taking the bull by the horn and smashing our goals this month, no holding back. Do I have a witness? To make the most of the post, you will need to read to the end. If you ever find a need to close this blog post at any point, then you need it more. I love the third point since it has worked for me.

The importance of goal setting cannot be overemphasized. I know that I told you that you can do anything so far you set your mind to it but let me also tell you that you might not be able to do much if you don’t set goals. If you ever want to live the life of your dreams, goal setting is one of the most powerful ways you can achieve that. You thought I would just leave you with the thought of how you can do anything you set your mind to? No, my dear.

If you did not have teachers that fall into any of the following categories, I’m not sure you went to school o, lmao. I mean, my friend and I talked about this at midnight and we legit were shouting ‘me too’ while laughing hard. Thank God it’s Friday, yaaayyyyyyy. I figured you guys love gist and it’s been a while we relived memories, so why not? Get your popcorn and wine, let’s go down the memory lane. Lol

I know you have believed otherwise for the longest time but let me remind you that you can do it. The time has come for you to drop the narrative that some things are meant for some people. It’s a lie from the pit of hell (well hell sounds too deep but it passes the message). Success is not just for some people and they are not doing well because they were lucky to get a manual. Do I need to also remind you that they don’t have two heads?
