Your couple crush has a couple crush

I could name this post social media is not the real deal but I settled for this catchy one,  hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it. 


I might be right or wrong but my generation loves to live life as seen on social media, they think all is rosy and cosy and once it doesn't work as they envisioned or as they see online they call it quit, they just end it and go separate ways.

At work, we look at our friends and classmates and expect our jobs to be as nice as theirs, forgetting that all we see on the gram or on their snap is just a glimpse of their workplace and colleagues. We all have different paths in life so own yours and walk diligently in it. Focus on your work and get rewarded accordingly.

Relationship hmmm, don't go there everyone has a couple crush/goal, "even your couple crush has a couple crush".

Sister girl and brother man no one tells you what they have to deal with and let go.  You don't know how many times they forgive each other daily.

No one tells you they had a heated arguments minutes before sending that lovely snap you took a screenshot of, I mean the one you hope you and bae can be someday soon

Girl no one is going to tell you how much they sacrifice to be together when the world comes crumbling at their feet so please stop dreaming about Mr & Mrs XYZ and start building your dream home from ABC.

On family, girl we all got responsibilities don't think our families have no turn and twists, so man up and stop complaining about yours. Don't think we talk to all our uncles, aunties, cousins and what have you.

No fam, you see what you have on social media is the rose no one shows you the thorn. You see the beauty and wish for it if only you saw the ashes.

I repeat run your race and leave everyone on social media to do their thing, it is social media, it is not the real deal.


PS: This ain't personal.

Something Light

N.B: This not the lyrics to Falz song. Yeah, that title got you, I knew it would and am glad it did. Please read to the end.

I want to share some tips from my personal life to help you stay happy and live lightly without any baggage (something light)


- I am always positive and optimistic about my situation.
- I write my goals and work on it daily, as hard as I can.
- I am not striving to be better than I was yesterday, I have to be better it's not arguable.
- I don't worry too much about things at least not anymore.
- I don't take things to heart, I just let things slide sometimes.
- I never compare my self to anyone (our paths differ).
- I compliment myself and give credit to myself when I do well.
- I also scold myself when I do something wrong.
- I speak positively a lot and lastly
- I never stop learning new things.

The reason I sew.

I sew not because it is easy but it teaches me that nothing good comes easy.

I sew not because it is trendy and stylish but it allows me sew my own trend and style.

I sew not because it so fast but because I don't want a tailor to have my cloth for a year.

I sew not because I love it but I love what I sew.

I sew not because it is cheaper but it saves me the cost (emotional) of haggling with dressmakers.

I sew because whoever wears my cloth in whatever country of the world has a piece of my art and heart.

When I sew I am happy paddling that machine because not only am I creating something new am burning old fat.

Few reasons why I sew.
