Memoirs of a Woman Going Without

From A Friend

We smile not because we have it all.
We laugh hard because we know the future is bright.
We don’t always win. We learn sometimes.
And this is what keeps us going.
Because we know we are diamonds, just in coal form for now.
Am Owoade…….

Been a while i blogged my thoughts.

I guess life caught up with me.

Each day i get on my keyboard and just can’t seem to piece my writings together.

Perhaps because i delved into new ventures and now have to think on ways to establish them.

Or maybe i just went into the seasonal dry period.

So here i am on my keyboard, back to writing even if it’s about why have not been writing.

Hoping to be inspired from hereon

The Strong Woman

Most likely the first thought that will cross your mind, when you see this topic is “there goes another feminist heading”. Lol, well after changing the headlines three times, i decided to leave it as the strong woman so it says what my ramblings are about straight away.

No doubt, we are known as the weaker sex, as a matter of fact i don’t contest that statement.

Yes we are quick to give away emotions, we get things done by crying, throwing tantrums and a times even standing standing our grounds on issues others perceive as senseless.

Whichever way you choose to express the word ‘WOMAN’. One thing cannot be tossed away, we are very important to the very essence of life.

So in my own words, i will go ahead to described the strong woman as:

A woman who knows what she wants. She whines a times, (i know i do). She cries, she has made mistakes and has learnt from her mistakes.

A strong woman is one who,life has thrown her, its jabs.

She has faced situations bold faced.

She takes every situation, as a lesson learnt.

She is focused on the future, she has envisaged for herself.

She is the woman, men pray for, to have as wives.

She is the woman the bible described in Proverbs 31

She is the foundation maker of every individual on earth

She is the STRONG WOMAN!!

Salute to these women.

May we be known as one.

May we befriend them.

May we raise them

To the Strong Woman!!!

Let Not!!

Many are called, few are chosen.

He gives strength to the weakest.

He uses what you call your weakness to show the world what wondrous things he can do through you.

Let not your circumstance which you consider unfavorable, deter you from seeing when God is at work in your life.

Shut out the noise and open your ears to God.

Let not the opinions of man interfere with God’s plan for your life.

Design your life

For every Empress and Emperor out there.

What this picture is actually saying is, you can live that life you think is a far end from reality.

You just need to dream it and believe it!

Prioritize your goals, let go of unnecessary drama and negativity.

Give room to positivity, laughter and most of all surround yourself with people that bring out the best in you.

Do what makes you happy, let your deeds leave smiles and good memories with people you come in contact with.

Go to the drawing board, begin to draw and design the life you love.
