Letter To My Future Self

Dear Readers,
It seems like every time I get my act together and find a schedule that works, something happens that throws me off balance and then I have to start all over again. I apologize for the long and hard break in blogging. Life just seems to always find a way in. That’s not to say that it’s not been a beautiful year so far.

For the past few days I've been reflecting a lot on how far I've come in my personal life and what lessons I’d like to remember ten (10) years from now. Therefore, I've decided to write this letter to my future self. If you could, what would you say to your future self, based on your current situation?

Dear Future (Mrs.) Adenike O. ______________ (Adebayo):
If you are reading this letter, then you are most probably at a point in your life when you feel the need to
reflect. You are most probably married with kids. Your life is beautiful just as you've always prayed for.
Are you happy? Are you truly genuinely happy? I sure hope you are. You see, you've been through so much: physically, emotionally, spiritually and in every aspects of your life. You've made a lot of mistakes. I’m thinking of some of the mistakes now and It’s making me cringed. Dang! I can’t believe I actually did that. Anyway, back to you.

My main purpose of writing this letter is to let you appreciate how far you've come, and most importantly, how far God has brought you. You found Christ when you are only 7 years old and you devoted your life to him. In the course of your journey you stumbled and fell, over and over again. But He was always there to help you up. He never gave up on you.

You made friends, you lost friends. You cried, you laughed. You dated! Oh, let’s not forget the boys. (Since you are happily married now, I’m sure your husband won’t mind.) There were guys you liked but they did not like you, some liked you but you did not like them and others you dated. But of course, it did not work out for any of them: until you met your husband, then you knew. You just knew it was him.

Moving on, 2013 was particularly a difficult year for you. You struggled with your finances, emotional and spiritual life. Another relationship did not work out again. (And praise God it did not! I would not have wanted you to end up with such a man.) Your faith in God was shaken. You went to bed with tears in your eyes many times with only one question in your heart: “why does it have to be so difficult?” But one way or another, you survived. God brought you helpers and true friends. (How about that friendship that you lost in 2013? How is she? I hope she’s doing amazingly well?)

Now it’s 2014 and as I write you this letter I’m filled with so much joy and happiness. God continually blesses me beyond measure. I’m so happy. It’s crazy. Doors of greatness are opening unto me and I cannot praise God enough. I hope you are still devoted to the things of God? I hope you are taking care of mumsie and popsie? Did you build them that house yet? How is everyone? There are names I’d like to mention but that’ll take forever.

Last but definitely not the least, how is your husband? :D Tell him I love him so much and my heart blesses him. Hope you are cooking some delish meals for him? He had better not grow pot belly o. Give him a deep kiss for me will you? May God continually prosper him and bless his ways. Tell him I waited patiently for him to come and I’m glad I did. He was worth the wait. Tell the kids that I love them.

In all that you do and regardless of what the situation is as you read this, always remember that God is your source and he’ll always have you covered. I love you and you are the best thing that could ever happen to me.

Endlessly,
Your Younger Self.

10 Mistakes Girls Make With Guys

Please appreciate the fact that men and women are wired differently. They have different ways of expressing and varying levels of emotional understanding. Avoid making silly mistakes by getting a few simple things right. These are some of the ten most common mistakes women make in a relationship.
1.    Too many questions about the past:
The fact that your man is in a relationship with you currently is proof enough that he is in love with you and has already gotten over his past relationships. While it’s good to know a little bit about his past, don’t take the liberty of digging so deep that his wounds freshen up.
2.    Visiting his workplace:
This is quite a sensitive issue as most men don’t like their girlfriends dropping in at their workplaces without being told. It is only if you are in a steady relationship from a long time or engaged that you can take the liberty of dropping into your man’s workplace uninformed.
3.    Bringing up marriage:
If you have been in a relationship for a long time, it’s but natural that you will talk about marriage and settling down at some point. You may have a conversation about this once but don’t bring up the topic again and again. You will be at a loss if your man gets irritated by the same conversation taking place repetitively. It’s not that men are averse to commitment; it’s just that they take some time in taking these important decisions.
4.    Pretending to be someone:
If there is anything that men hate, it is lies and hypocrisy. Many women make the blunder of pretending to be what they are not in reality. For instance, if you don’t like putting on makeup and dressing too much for a party, don’t do it just for him. He will immediately sense your discomfort. He would much rather appreciate and love your honesty and expect you to be what you are.
5.    Compare financials:
How would you feel if someone compared your salary figures to that of your contemporaries? Terrible, surely! Although in today’s world, women see themselves as equals to men, men still think of themselves as bread earners of the family. Treat your man with respect irrespective of his earning. Don’t ever make the mistake of comparing his financials with others.
6.    Don’t attempt to mend him:
Accept him with all his flaws and abilities. Don’t try and mother him to change his habits according to your
needs. Give your man his space and watch how that automatically brings him to you.
7.    Giving too much freedom:
If you see your man talking to other women at most of the parties and even going to the extent of flirting with them when you’re around, take that as a warning signal and strike on it as soon as possible but don’t be rude, do it politely and in style. You may be making a terrible mistake by trusting your partner blindly with such behavior.
8.    Expecting expression of feelings all the time:
Men are not used to constant expression. For instance, you should expect a compliment from him once in a while but if you start expecting it every day then you are calling for trouble. You have to understand that just because men don’t express the way in which women freely do; it doesn’t mean they don’t love with passion.
9.    Talking negatively:
If you bitch about others in front of your man all the time (once in a while is acceptable of course), it will make him feel that someday when you are not together you will talk about him in the same way with other people. Don’t make an impression on him that you are a negative person.
10. Comparing Looks:
Impress your man by showing some confidence about how beautiful and attractive you look. It’s not your outfit but your confidence that attracts your man. In trying to fish for compliments by comparing your physical appearance with other women, you are just making matters worse.
In-addition: Women often commit blunders with men in relationships. It’s a matter of understanding that men have a certain way of dealing with things that is different from women. Once you get this point, you will be much more comfortable and at ease in dealing with the men in your life. (WATCH OUT FOR 10 MISTAKE MEN MAKE IN A RELATIONSHIP)

Are You Currently Watching Shuga?

Shuga is an African TV show based on the lives of young people, focused mainly on love, sex and money. It also emphasizes the importance of getting tested for HIV and being aware of one's status.
Currently, the Naija version of the show is on and it's an absolute delight.

Shuga Naija 
When Femi (Ikubese Emmanuel Ifeanyi) returns from Nairobi to Lagos, a long standing secret upsets the relationship between his music promoter friend Ekene (Okezie Morro), and Ekene's girlfriend Foye (Maria Okanrende). Meanwhile Foye's best friend Sophie (Dorcas Shola Fapson) is outraged when her little sister Princess (Sharon Ezeamaka) appears unexpectedly on campus.

Watch my review to hear the exact details of this tv show, my dramatics and opinions.

Who Said "I Love You" First..?.... Highly Overrated!

I'm not sure how this applies in the Nigerian dating culture and I would be glad if someone enlightens me but I know in the western world, saying "I Love You" for the first time is a really big deal, I mean a huge deal in relationships and I've never really understood why people place so much emphasis on who says it first, how soon you say it and even where you say it. Now, I know this affects men and women in different ways so I'll address the both angels.
Ladies First...
So here comes Angela and Segun who have been dating for 5 months and Segun is yet to say the three magic words. Angela starts to panic, ".. does he love me..? ... should I say it first..? maybe he's too shy to say it..? .. Oh God, he's seeing another girl...." All these and even worse are the thoughts in Angela's head. So what should she do?
Men...
Here is Segun, enjoying the relationship that he has going with Angela. Everything thing seems to be going well and he really does care about her but he is not yet at the commitment stage. One day, they are on a romantic date when Angela tells Segun "...babe, I have something I've been wanting to tell you.." (Segun begins to think.. Oh Oh....)

Angela: "Babe, I want you to know that I love you..."
Segun: Oh! .. **awkward silence**
