The average Nigerian woman's new year resolution

Let's be frank for a second. We're all excited for the champagne and sparkles that is New Year's eve, but the day after, we're going to be left with a booze-induced headache, glitter in our hair, and thoughts on what the new year will bring.

2018 is the year that female social entrepreneurs should think and act with an abundance mindset, especially with impact to resolve to improve your self. Did we complete our resolutions from last year? Do you even remember what they were? I can say that I completely forgot mine lol. Some of the average new year resolutions for our typical Nigerian women are:-  The struggle to join the gym and keep fit, for others is to save money, while we have those determined to give their life to Christ, however we also have the ones that keep saying " I am going to stop being a runs girl this year" ...and few others with the aim of starting a family and finding their spouse.  You here some of my family and friends saying things like &…

After The Glitz and Glamour- Now What?
-by Ruth Bala Victor   Honeymoon is over, the thank you visitations are over, wedding photos now hung on your walls, and wedding presents now unveiled. You have been married for a few months now and it feels just like yesterday when you asked and she said yes; now its time to face reality- she is a nag like other women, she can be lazy at some point, she might also be sensitive and wants to know everything! On the other hand, she is having to face the reality that all men including her 'night in shining amour' snore, you forgot to bring breakfast in bed for her, you forgot to flush after using the toilet. Suddenly, family bombarding you with questions on getting pregnant-then comes pregnancy scares. What about a baby on the way?- Financial investment sets In-and emotional stress- whose family do we spend Christmas with?    The few years in your marriage are the best time to learn how to settle problems and handle disappointments in your ma…


First Step to Get What You Want - Admit You Want It. Today's article covers the very first step of getting what you want — admitting you want it. While this may seem obvious, many people do not get what they want because they do not acknowledge their desires. These people are also the deniers.For example, in the area of career, there are so many people who have dreams they want to pursue — be it setting up their restaurant, being a baker, being a manga artist, or creating music. However, deniers stifle themselves by staying in a career they dislike. They give reasons like the job is "not bad," that it fulfills their needs, and that they're quite content with life, when deep down they wish for something more.In the area of relationships, there are singles who wish to be in a relationship, but deny it. Some are too proud to acknowledge that they do want to be with someone. Some are afraid that it will make them look desperate (it doesn't). For those who are attache…

Using The Power Of Your Unconscious Mind To Build Better Relationships

DOES THE ADVICE TO LOVE YOURSELF MAKE SENSE?Loving oneself doesn't entail that one is selfish, it just states that no one loves Nigeria better than Nigerians. Some times I sit in my room either blogging, watching my favorite TV programme, googling, trying new things on my web page, getting inspired by the social networking lifestyle,  listening to music, reading number of books by my bed side or maybe eating- is always kitchen to bedroom for me, it works just fine LOL...
   During those times, my Dad knocks in to ask "Ozi are you okay? You haven't stepped out since morning, I find it horrifying that you choose to sit inside your room for the whole day". Most times I laugh when he ask these questions, I understand that my dad cares about my well being or he needs to be sure I'm not encountering depression lol (we can't always wave that away). For me settling indoors works just perfectly, I wouldn't however label it as "settling in my comfort zone"…
