The light within us glows for a season, then it may get dim for a season, and unfortunately, at times our light goes out completely. The last situation is one we all want to avoid. We must recognize when the light within us is about to completely burn out, and we must reach out for help from trusted people. This is why I was glad those two ladies reached out to me over Christmas.

When you find yourself thinking of visiting a city the third time, you know it made a lasting impact on you. Barcelona, Spain, our Thanksgiving holiday destination November 2019. The last time we visited was 7 years ago, and my daughters loved it, so we decided to return. What I love most about this city is, it’s an ‘all in one city”. If you’re looking for history, architecture, city life, beautiful urban beaches, modern to rustic hotels, and good food.

Oprah did not become Oprah overnight. Barack Obama did not become President Obama in one week. Their journeys to success took time. Yours will take time too. Be patient! If you’re middle-aged like I am, you’ve probably come to the brutal realization that good things do take time to come to fruition. Sometimes, a really long time! And you’ve also fully realized that time is very precious.

It was a day in April this year, the beginning of spring, that I made up my mind about having my first women’s conference. I’d been toying with the idea on and off since I published my book Permanent Happiness in May 2017. Since my book’s release, I’ve been receiving messages from young women all over the world. Some medical students, nursing students, those aspiring to serve in other areas of healthcare, and other young women with diverse backgrounds from different corners of the world.

My dad was my rock, my superhero, my confidant. With his gentle demeanor, gentle voice, and humble stance, he directed me in many life matters. As I blossomed into a woman, he grounded me and spoke words of wisdom to me that helped me navigate life on many levels.

“But all men cheat”—a phrase I’ve heard so many times from women, in all age brackets, that I now feel compelled to write about it. A phrase created by women for women. Created to achieve this one goal: to justify their own personal reason for staying in a relationship with a cheating spouse/husband/boyfriend. Reasons that include ...

You want to know why I’m Pro Life? It is very simple. I just believe the gift of life is precious and sacred. I believe the gift of life (babies) are seeds necessary for the advancement of humanity. My reason is as simple as that. No religious or political or complex reasoning. But please, Pro Choice backers, do not judge me yet. Please continue reading.

Hello, my little black daughters. What a difference six months makes! My first letter to you was in October of last year. I planned to write you another one after the holidays. One thing led to another. Life got busy. Then as I thought I was shifting back into writing mode in February, life happened—in a major way! My mom passed away suddenly. I know the grieving process will never end, but I’m feeling stronger each day.

I was so honored when Reach out and Read, Georgia asked me to write a blog post for Learn4Life. It was published recently, and I'm so happy to share it with you.

I’m not a huge sports fan. I don’t consider myself particularly athletic. I do enjoy staying in shape and working out about four times a week doing a combination of Barre, FlyFit, heated Vinyasa yoga, and spin classes. I watched a lot of football (soccer) as a kid growing up in Nigeria. Football was always on TV.
