THE COMPLEXITIES OF LIFE – MY PERSPECTIVE

Do we really understand life? Do we need to understand life to enjoy life?   “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” – Confucius. “I never knew anybody . . . who found life simple. I think a life or a time looks simple when you leave out the details.” ― […]

BE A BLESSING TO SOMEONE.

‘Wealth is not to feed our egos, but to feed the hungry and to help people help themselves’- Andrew Carnegie. The easiest way to be blessed is to be a channel of blessing to people around you. If you are fortunate to be rich, realize that it’s not meant solely for you.  Let the less […]

LIFE LESSON- NIGERIAN WOMEN, EDUCATION AND NATION BUILDING.

                      The girl-child education; a necessary tool for nation building and development! Women are home care-givers, mothers, leaders and nation builders.

LIFE LESSON- ARISE AFRICA!

There is no black brain, every brain has the same colour! But the problem in Africa is our mentality. No one soar like an eagle with a grasshopper mentality! Africa arise! It’s time for a change. Africa is a great continent with vast natural and human resources. We have so much but so little to […]
