Learning to say 'No', has sure being one of the hardest things most of us have done.
Saying 'no' to a friend could end that relationship.
Saying 'no' to a sibling could require some explanation and maybe some sort of tip 😉.
Saying 'no' to a parent could crumble some bricks here and there.
Saying 'no' to a child could mean little or no arm whatsoever.

Saying 'no' to people has been essential from the very beginning of man. What if Eve said 'no' to the serpent or better still Adam said 'no' to Eve, just what if?

We always find ourselves caught inbetween saying no and saying yes. We always tend to say yes so as not to hurt the person we are conversing with or break a relationship, but have you realized most if not all of the Yes you said when you actually intended to say No have put you in the situation you are in now.

People will ask questions and require details as to why you have said no, thats okay if they are worth the explanation why not and if they are not please hop on to the next Yaba bus and listen to Don Meon in your track list.

It's so easy to be caught up with the buzz and fuzz of life that you lose track of what you really want to do and how you really want to do what you want to. It's your life own it and be accountable for everything and anything you do. Don't be caught up in the web instead catch the web. On this note I will leave with two interesting pictures I saw online this week, one is a screenshot though.

All she wants

All she wants is her head resting on his semi-broad shoulders,
All she wants is her body encapsulated in his warm body,
All she wants is her nose smelling his fresh minty breath, 
All she wants is her back massaged with his firm grasp.

All she wants is to be away in a flower filled garden playing hide and seek with him,
All she wants is to be on a roller coaster, he holding her hand steadily reassuring her of his love,
All she wants is to chase in the rain him and get a kiss from him after he is caught her in his hands,
All she wants is to hear him laugh loud at her silly jokes and scold her for being silly when need be..

All she wants is to see him dress that his brown skinned masculine body,
All she wants is to walk with him in a her short flared dress and he holds her hand as she walks gently in those stiletto shoes,
All she wants is to let him open the door for her as they arrive the house that will become home forever,
All she wants is to feel short beside him and watch him steep down to kiss her forehead.

All she wants is to kneel with him at the end of each day to acknowledge their Maker,
All she wants is to hear him preach the word through his lifestyle, his attitude and everything that concerns him
All she wants is to build a Christian family with him, where love is endless and boundless.
All she wants is to organize charity outreaches for orphans and less privileged with him giving his full support.


All she wants is to be his only and he will be her only,
All she wants is to be found by him,
All she wants is to discern it is him.
All she wants is to be with him forever.

That is all she wants.

Life without a dad

Life without a father is hard some folks will say it can be hard, but I tell you from experience it is hard.

Life without a father is hard some friends will tell you of the new that and new this their father got for them, thats okay and sweet. I would not be too sad if it were just gifts they got, but there is more they have that man that will always be there for them come rain come shine. They don't have to stress too hard, they still get pocket money even at 25, wow that is awesome! They call daddy to tell him of the new bloke in the block, they giggle at each others joke. They have someone who has their back when mama says otherwise, how delightful?

You tell your dad you need to change your hair and basinga he is to the rescue. You tell your dad you want the latest samsung phone and thats it, you have it by dinner. You have that man that sits on the King's seat during meals on the dining table.  You are always going to be his little girl and on your big day he walks you down the aisle. Oh what joy it is to have a father!

You have your daddy, I don't have mine. I lost my dad before I even had him. I wish my daddy was here. I will stay up to make dinner for him, I will tell him every tiny detail about my day. I will also tell him how boys get so naughty this days and seldom respect a lady. I will tell him everything and anything. I will ask for his love over and over again and love him endlessly too. I wish he just stayed a little longer just a little longer. Daddy passed when I was 8. I have lived without his calls, messages, love and life for almost 13 years. If I had my daddy, things will completely different.

I have lost the feeling of having a dad. What does it feel like? How does it feel like? I never said this out loud until now I want a daddy can I get one? All I want is a daddy.

Note from Teame.

Never dying joy

I woke up the best I ever thought I could be today, like a new bride basking in the joy of the previous days' ceremony. I had no thoughts or worries on my mind. The joy kept growing even as I ran the streets of Abuja under the hot scorching sun with sweat running through my half baked skin, I still had the unwavering joy in my heart.


I wonder what makes a lady like me so happy? Then I realise it is not me that makes myself happy but a power greater and better that doesn't look at my present state but puts me in a state I should be.

I am that young girl that is always happy next door. Little wonder why my colleagues would ask 'Rotimi do you ever have a down time?' Well you have your answer here: No.

I am always happy not because I have it all but because in Gods' guided imaginations I have it all. If you can imagine it then you can create that which would guide you and keep you happy. Did I forget to say, being happy should not be a state of your life but it should be your life and its important to rely and trust God for everything for we can do nothing of our own accord.
