For hours I sat out, staring at nothing. I thought about her, wondering where she is right now, wondering if she healed, if I was ever right about Time.
Many years back I recall, She woke up one morning, with a note in the pit of her stomach, her heart thumping so hard she could hear it. it raced so fast she thought she’s going to die. How she convinced herself she was still alive but part of her felt like she was dead. For a moment she understood when I once cried out that my heart bled.
That day, she got to office and so much work had piled for her to look at. She had a meeting in a short hour and she didn’t know if she was ready for it. She went to the bathroom not able to hold back her tears. For a while she wanted to sink into the floor and let it all out but she thought of all that’s waiting for her, all that’s to be done, she thought about the many people that were going to walk in and out. She didn’t have the time nor the space to cry. Her job was at a risk. She pulled together and again managed to convince herself this was just for a while then doubt creeps in…for how long was it going to last.
I personally didn’t have the right words to tell her. I could feel her pain. I understood exactly what she’s going through.

Funny how we see someone or something many times and never think much and then one day they appear from nowhere, sometimes through a take out, order in or walk-in. And then you notice them. Nothing specific really but you have that chat with yourself;
“hey see that guy over there”‘
“oh yeah, oh that guy, yeah, what about him”,
“I don’t know…he looks like…”
“looks like what?”,
“…like my next mistake”

I came across a short video on the internet.
There are very few times in life when you watch something and think, “if i didn’t write and loose this script, then this person in this video just stole my mind”.
So here goes;-many times I have heard women respond to a compliment with “ohhh yo just flattering me”.
It is so disappointing especially when it is so clear she is so breathtakingly beautiful…so much there is no way she didn’t see that in her mirror.
What i think is this… Continue reading “Women Fearfully and Wonderfully made”
For the natural hair sisters, you sisters are the only ones that understand this kind of obsession-the nicely softened-conditioned hair and the unkempt hair the morning after.
My hair begins to curl back tomorrow morning when I do my #washngo; so I thought, why not post a last flattened-hair look. This is the best I could do at this time of the night. Just a little…woo that looks like alooot of lipstick to give it a Girlie touch.
So next is my #washngo. The hair shrunk to half length and did not break meaning my hair elasticity is healthy. All I needed was;
- Shampoo; in my case, my scalp dries up so fast and causes scaling so I have an anti dandruff shampoo and this time its Pantene.
- Conditioner; this is my best friend. I will condition my hair almost every 2 days. I have a tee tree conditioner that de-tangles, moisturizes and softens my hair. I keep changing conditioners because I notice, the hair kinda gets fed up and stops reacting to one and the same conditioner after a while.
- Big tooth comb. This helps with de-tangling and hence my hair breakage is minimal.
- Sweet scented shower gels like vanilla, coconut and raspberry. I know yo’ probably wondering why the shower gel when am writing about a wash and go here.
