I wasn't sure of how to write about the topics I felt strongly about this week. So I am glad I read Miss Nsatu's post to give me a little more direction on how to go about this. As an advocate, I don't have to have gone through the issues that light a fire and … Continue reading Advocacy: Where to begin.
Bringing this one out of the archives for today😅😅. This was my third post on the blog, a whole year and a half ago. But I think it holds some truth for the present. For a while in this season (the faith-beating season from about one post back) I have believed deeply that it is … Continue reading How to finish well
So I went ahead and googled 'skilled writer'. Because to be honest it's not a term that quickly comes to mind when I think of writing. Not that I found something outrageously new about it.

I have certainly been thinking a lot about doing things in my time and not feeling rushed or behind for a whole. But that confidence is always fleeting when the world applies … Continue reading Owning your timeline
Welcome to December (even though you've been here for enough days already). A few more weeks and we call it a wrap on this year. We are outgrowing 2020, even though it is mostly inevitable. Days roll into months, then into years and we find ourselves in the next thing - willingly or unwillingly. This … Continue reading Outgrowing spaces
Is that even a question! Yet, I find myself coming round to this question time and again. What do I write about? Should I even bother? Is this necessary? Does it portray all my honest thoughts? Who am I doing this for? The best advice (okay, one of the best - because I keep hearing … Continue reading To write or not to write!
World Suicide Prevention Day was observed on September 10th. And I'm coming to the table three days later. It's encouraging to see the ongoing conversations on this.
