I AM RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT! LET'S TALK OVER BREAKFAST



One of the boxes I would never have checked before now was having breakfast. I would ask, "Wait a minute, What's breakfast?" I had terrible eating habits. 

Two years prior to now I would leave home without breakfast and eventually settle for brunch. My mind was always filled with tasks to achieve for the day while the thought of breakfast was well swept under the carpet.

My family and friends would hold tonnes of advisory sessions on the importance of having breakfast. The worst part being that I was a black sheep in the field of Public Health which I studied. So how do I advise someone to do something yet go contrary? The guilt began to settle in gradually. 

Let long stories be for the 'Leonard's.' I broke that habit after bouts of health challenges due to my poor dietary regime. My evaluation of that period was that I was depriving myself of self-love. If you love yourself, you will eat right. 
Incase you are yet to notice, the most grumpy people often times are hungry people. 
It seems so odd that eating breakfast every morning can help you be healthier, but it is true. By eating a healthy breakfast your body has more energy all day long helping you burn more calories. Not to mention it sets the tone for the day ahead. Prepare yourself a simple breakfast meal, like a cup of tea, cereal or a smoothie and after a few weeks see the changes that begin to take place.

Breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day. Whether your goal is weight loss or simply to be healthy, it is imperative that you make eating breakfast a regular habit. Do you wonder what you stand to gain? Well, you have decreased appetite that makes you eat less, a good way to kill in-between snacking, you improve your memory capacity, boost your metabolism and keep your blood sugar levels stable during the day and reduce chances of a Type 2 Diabetes. 

Now stop making excuses for shortage of time, kickstart your day with a healthy breakfast. Remember there’s absolutely nothing you can do to make up for the mistake of not eating breakfast in the morning. Rise, Eat and then Shine.

As you know elections are around the corner in Nigeria. I will be running for President of the BLA ( Breakfast Lovers Association). 

I have the notion that I am unconquerable. If you would love to prove me wrong then you need to get your breakfast game right.

WHY I WON'T BE BUYING ANYTHING AGAIN FOR A LIFETIME

Heads up, people! 

Walking into a shop to purchase an item does not look appealing to me anymore. This is one of my decisions for the new year being that if something is not worth it then there is no point buying it especially trying to impress another fellow. 

I have chosen to stick to buying experiences rather 'things.' One of my observation is that experiences cannot be stolen or compromised. They stick like your gum sap sticks to a tree. 

So maybe before you buy that expensive Emporio Armani wristwatch or Jimmy Choo shoes, it might be imperative to checkmate if there are experiences that same amout can buy you. Don't get me wrong, it is as clear as crystal that you need to shop for clothings, food, phones or luxury from time to time but bear in mind that your happiness can't be tied to any item. That vibe you get is nothing but a fleeting one . 

“One of the enemies of  happiness is adaptation,” Thomas Gilovich reveals. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. B…

NEXT BIG THING: CREATING A NEW WORLD THROUGH MY LENS - KINGSLEY AGORUA

Jim Rohn had his opinion that "If you don't like where you, change it. You are not a tree." Kingsley Agorua had looked around where he found himself and decided to change it to suit his taste through his lens.

My earliest contact with Kingsley should have been in 2012 when I was a student at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri. I spotted him at an event on campus where he was taking photographs.

Little did I know that I would bump into him again at my faculty - The School of Health as a student. I was curious as to what a photographer was doing in my faculty during lecture period. Time will reveal that he was a student too who was madly in love with his camera. This was all before the advent of traditional or nearly compulsory bridal showers, baby showers and pre-wedding shoots in the Nigerian Creative Industry.


Kingsley Agorua is a cinematographer with years of experience from Oguta in Imo state. He studied Dental Technology at the Federal University of Techno…

Valentine for all times

"He just had to go", I yelled inside of me. Dele was too bossy and proud,the rest of the staff looked up to me to ensure he was fired. All I had to do was pull the manager into my seductive web and by morning, Dele would get his termination letter. Anyone who stood in my way always got burnt, I loved to revenge passionately and Dele was certainly not a sacred cow.

The subsequent monday was my birthday, I was hoping there would be a suprise cake or party for me but no soul even wished me a happy birthday. Work went on as every other normal day.
I bent to open my drawer then I saw a parcel with a note attached to it:

I boss you because I want you to be the boss
I have admired you since the day I knew you
Work has to get better but don't ever try to change you.
Lots of love
Dele.

I wept like a baby, that was the only gift I got that day.
Dele was not sacked and they are now proud parents of three kids.

Don't you just love to love? #winks.
Love everyone, everyday!
Happy…
