31 Days of Happiness day 19-27morning

Today I will do well...But this morning I am sad for Bobbi K
...and then come those ponderings on this life we live a blessing or a curse!
Sigh 
This past week... I was so elated on Friday i thot I could burst with all the excitement. For I have been reading Jane Eyre and by all means it is messing with my speaking.
I have thrown myself all thru this week into planning a trip to where I can't disclose just yet. It will be worth it, I keep telling myself
I learnt that till one finds his or her purpose and fulfills the said purpose or works in/with it, then can the person actually live.
I have not been eating well so I took up ODing on 2 of my superfoods Garlic and Avocado, this weekend. Can't let my bodily defenses fail.
Ps. Happiness is a choice, happiness is contentment, happiness is an adventure, happiness is grounded understanding of oneself, happiness is charity, happiness is going on a journey, happiness is new things too, happiness is learning.

Ps again. I got paid for my newly a…

31 days of happiness DoH day 12-18

I didn't neglect my 31 days I have  some sort of excuses...
A quick summary tho
Sunday was an interesting one, I was glad to be alive at its end as I literally passed thru a fire...
thankfully I wasn't burnt and I didn't explode.

Monday was filled with thoughts of strategy, plotting and scheming. This day i learnt happiness is forgiveness

Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday I worked by day and worked by night
Still happiness was fulfillment. To put a smile on face of the customer...
I read the book The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma...
I will share my thots later

Friday- road trip whoot whoot! Saturday road trip again
Happiness is a wanderlust's pilgrim... I know that sounds funny but....
I don't ever want to be cured of travelling
Enjoy the weekend people
Ps. Be happy

31 Days of Happiness day 11 the blame game

"he who wants to swim freely in the deep end doesn't hold on to the rails in the shallow end" - the flygirl

the events of a part of my day and a book I am currently reading has led to my quote above.

the summary of playing a blame game. This simply prevents one from moving forward wholeheartedly.
" you caused this, you started this you made a choice, you said this, you said that..." Just holding on to trading blames.

Another day of random occurrences, still so thankful it keeps getting better.
I am getting better.
So here's to me changing for the best, to me becoming successful and not downcast...to positive growth

Ps: Happiness is also made up of wisdom
Jesus take my wheel...

31 Days of Happiness day 10 swing swing

It rained so heavily today, and by the end of the day I had a brilliant idea for a concept I am working on.I hope the idea isn't washed away by Monday...
I haven't put so much thought into day 10's post but I was thankful for the start of day 10 and now... the end too
I read earlier about twin brothers who were mixed up and lived that way for 24 years. Even I had Mixed emotions and I haven't seen them ever in my life.
I am a step closer to earning money out of one of my other skills and I am happy about that. Company registered, first customer deal about to close in.
 I learnt this phrase this morning "Skill and talent are amazing, however only discipline makes them useful"
Happiness is a mood
Ps: the title is from an All-American-rejects song
Ps again: I have a big day tomorrow, I hope it works out well...

31 Days of Happiness days 8 and 9 Can you hear the silence

can you hear the silence?

today like yesterday I laughed heartily.
gone are the 'so you have a voice and you can laugh?' questions I ask myself.

yesterday I found a place of safety. Today I stayed in my place of safety... and I can stay for as long as I want.

I read a couple of mails about the tube strike from TFL, and felt a wee bit nostalgic. Closed my eyes and thot about how filled to the door buses from Paddington would be, by the time they got to George st only 2 stops away. I opened my eyes and was thankful for my car...

Fuel in Lagos is another issue tho...
a word of advice, well, what I do. Every Saturday morning or Sunday morning, I fill up my car with fuel and if soooo necessary I take petrol jerry-can and put something in it. Saves all the drama of spending a long week day at work and a short night at a petrol station

I have done a lot thinking in these two days, I need to declutter my inner man
I need to hear the silence...

Ps: happiness is a choice

31 Days of Happiness day 6 and 7 and a couple of side hugs later

The other part of this post's title just had to beMay be I'll be brave to share later
Twould have been "may be someday, today focus" but I chose that instead... As I was heading home last night I asked myself "what was the funniest thing that happened today?" I had no answer To be honest, yesterday just passed. I was eager to cross my legs, watch something and eat well. - Day 6
In between reading an old stylist magazine edition this morning, mails and other thoughts later; 'Happiness is serendipity' popped in my mind. Then I looked up the meaning of the word, I am happy I am right...
7/7 tenth anniversary today... My heart goes out to everyone who has experienced the pain... Martine Wright came to speak at the Fast Girls pre-screening at Notting Hill Gate I volunteered at in 2012. 
I was withdrawn to myself today and yesterday as well, it hasn't stopped me from being happy... I am just praying for a good change... I'm living my life like it's go…

31 days of happiness 4 and 5

as I type, I am air drying my hair, a dead sea face mask on while I watch Makunouchi lose to Date...

a clinch.... I take a break to type well

I think a neighbor just discovered the power of loud speakers and karaoke!!! This is worse than the fat lady singing Dolly Patton!

Yesterday was goodish, I did the cold-don't-stare-at-me thing when I was at an event.
Calmed down and went off to Art twenty one gallery...
 and cooled off with good hearts I call friends. I was hoping it would rain tho, the dry weather had its perks still.

I think I shall visit Ghana, as my next west African country to visit. Till then... Happiness is contentment where I am

Today...I didn't paint instead I read and faffed a lot on IG and Pinterest.It rained... I am going to cut back more on sugar. I hardly ever take refined sugar but I take sugar in stuff that is laden with sugar, cookies, drinks from concentrate... May be tough at the start tho... I am bracing myself
A bit of 'I am happy chants' actua…

31 Day of happiness day 3

Aha! I crumbled instead during the day thankfully back up as the day ended. Lazy people trying to up nerve me. I was also happy it was Friday, honestly Friday always come with some doses of smiling regardless 
Then it rained as well....
Feels to me like there is nothing to explore in Lagos. Can we build up a little Spain in lagos community of some sort for Spanish food, laughs and lifestyle
Wireless Fest weekend...... wagging my little behind!!! So Yahoo! has the live show on its homepage. Cool or what!?
My heart goes out to Whitney's daughter, she needs a Miracle...

31 Days of happiness day 2

oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness! *that is from the original Annie

Today, struggled and pushed. The day is ending and my itouch still wouldn't come on. I was reading an old issue of stylist, needed to change locations turned it off popped it into my pocket and that was it.

I rise...
happiness is a choice

Ps. Once again, here's to avocados, superfoods and rain that boost my moods

31 days of happiness (DoH) day 1

Image
For every time something happened yesterday that made want to do the opposites of happiness I was reminded '31 days of happiness'So I survived, and felt a bit lighter.
I didn't fume when I wasn't acknowledged for an idea I came up with... and then modified, no time for that! I didn't wallow in negative moods either. I know it will get better instead, simply because I will Focus on staying happy in the midst of anything & everything.
Like Lisa Smosarski, the editor of Stylist magazine, I stay loving avocados. Here in Lagos, I get the amazing ones, never too soft or black! First world food problems... and wait for it...they are organically inexpensive as well! Lol They are good for the stomach, face and hair (SFH). One of those super foods imo. Add them to your 5 a day, especially since they are in season. Whipped up this lettuce n avocado salad last night  I could swear it helps with developing a good sleeping pattern... using myself as an example... This isn't s…
