Upsides to Long Distance Relationships (LDR)

We are focusing on the positives of LDRs! Finding someone who is amazing enough to take all your weirdness in, and choose to love you, DAILY, in spite of your flaws or short comings is right up there in the list of amazing things that can happen in life! Do not allow anyone tell you LDRs don’t work! With love, commitment and maturity, you are set!

You learn how to communicate better
Listen – when the best you have is a video call; you will utilize it to the max! Thank you Whatsapp! The tiniest frown on your partner’s face would seem so pronounced and unavoidable, causing you to go, ‘baby, are you ok? Huh? Honey? Love? Sweets? Talk to me please.’ With the constant questioning, your partner will quickly start explaining his/ her deepest fears and concerns to you.

Your creativity peaks
When the weather gets a little chilly, AKA cuffing season, and your boo boo is ways from you, your mind gets busy! You start finding methods to touch them, without physical contact. Be it small notes tucked into different parts of their apartment when you do see them, or sending the cutest dog pictures, imagining what the future holds, how you would never leave their side when the distance closes, or playing games online – my favorite being a Sudoku competition (I CHALLENGE ANYONE WHO DARES!)

I am sorry that you feel an unceasing pressure to carry on a weight that is too much for you. A weight that constantly breaks, desensitizes and destroys your soul. You do not have to go at it alone anymore. She is here for you.

I. Love. You. – This simple three-word sentence carries the most weight of any word combinations I know, because;

Love is patient
Love is kind
Love does not envy
Love does not boast
Love is not proud
Love does not dishonor others
Love is not self-seeking
Love is not easily angered
Love keeps no record of wrongs
Love does not delight in evil
Love rejoices in good
Love always protects
Love always trusts Continue reading

Getting to Know Nike Adeyemi (Video – Part 2)

Hello friends!

I hope you’ve all been doing well!

I had the pleasure of sitting down with the beloved Pastor Nike Adeyemi, a woman of substance and more! One of my biggest take aways from the second part of this interview is the power of being yourself. People will constantly have their own opinions of who you need to mold yourself into, but if you always succumb to that, you will lose yourself in the process.

This interview is packed with so much wisdom! We talk about relationships, living life deliberately and many more!

Getting to Know Nike Adeyemi (Video -Part 1)

Hello friends!

I hope you’ve all been doing well!

I had the pleasure of sitting down with the beloved Pastor Nike Adeyemi, a woman of substance and more! One of my biggest take aways from the first part of this interview is the power of starting exactly where you are and with what you have. We see many people who are ‘up there,’ and immediately want to be like them, but we must remember that they didn’t get there in one day, and mostly, not by themselves.

This interview is packed with so much wisdom! Please get your journals (coz we’re all keeping that right?) and make sure you jot down a few points to regurgitate over the next week till I bless y’all with Part 2!
