9jaflave Soliloquy - The Value Of A Moment (2)

As I turn a year older tomorrow, I am grateful for this gift called 'Life' and filled with so much gratitude. I am grateful for another day, I grateful for marriage, I am grateful for motherhood, I am grateful for family and I am grateful for good relationships. I am also grateful for every moment.

Life is a gift from God given to you to make beautiful memories. Everyday comes with moments and opportunities of a lifetime. What is the true value of just one priceless moment? A moment to find yourself. A moment to love again. A moment to make sacrifices. A moment to bless. A moment to care. A moment to share and a moment to restore.

What is the value of a moment wrapped up in the arms of a caring spouse? What is the value of a moment serving your family? What is the value of that moment conversing and laughing out loud with your kids? What is the value of just one priceless moment?

What is the value of those moments spent on your knees in prayer for your children? What is the value of that moment when you love and give selflessly? What is the value of that moment of peace  and love in your home? What is the value of a moment holding the hands of a sick child and saying it will be ok?

What is the value of that moment when your dreams come true? What is the value of that moment when you truly discover yourself? What is the value of that moment when you kiss a loved one "goodbye" for the last time. What is the value of just one priceless moment?

Just after the passing of her husband, world renowned fashion model/entrepreneur, Iman Abdulmajid tweeted, ' You never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.'

Choose to make every moment in your life count. Love endlessly. Give selflessly. Believe wholeheartedly. If you knew the value of a moment, everyday will become a day to create unforgettable memories.

Make each moment count. Make each moment beautiful. Make each moment priceless,,
Cheers and Stay inspired @ 9jaflave

9jaflave Soliloquy - Let Adversity Reveal Who You Truly Are

When life hits you hard, you see the person you never knew was there.
When challenges push you to your limits, you see the strength buried deep within.
When life throws jabs at you, you see the person behind the person.
When challenges want to tear you apart, you see the courage you never thought you had.
When adversity shows up, it comes to show you who you really are.
When adversity comes into your life, it only reflects the person that you are.
When adversity shows up, it comes not to build you up but to reveal who you truly are.

9jaflave Soliloquy - Keep Fighting

When the days are dark and your heart overwhelmed, Fight.
When life beats you hard and you just can't take it anymore, Fight.
When you seem alone with no one to share your pain, Fight.
When you need answers and the world seems silent, Fight.
When you have tried every way and nothing seems to work, Fight.
When hope seems so faraway and faith is but a word, Fight.
When you are at your wit's end and just about to give up, Fight.
Fight through the bad days.
Fight through the difficult seasons.
Fight through the pain and tears.
Fight through the loss.
Fight through the challenge.
Fight through the negativity.
Fight through loneliness.
Fight through the bad days.
Just keep fighting!!!!!!

Nigeria’s First Female Car Mechanic Is Giving Vulnerable Women Many Reasons To Dream Again

Meet Sandra Aguebor, Nigeria's first female mechanic and the founder of the Lady Mechanic Initiative, an organization that teaches women especially the vulnerable in our society how to fix cars and become financially independent.

About 1000 women have graduated from the Lady Mechanic Initiative's three and a half year course and many have gone on to start their own garages. Aguebor who has broken barriers to succeed in a male dominated profession is building hope again in the lives of many women and giving others many reasons to dream again.

In her words to women who are former sex workers, school dropouts and single mothers, women who say they have no hope in their lives anymore, she says to them, "You have got a lot of hope, I am going to help you build that hope."

9jaflave Soliloquy - When Hope Whispers

When hope whispers, find some courage to face those fears.
When hope whispers, look inside of you and find that little spark of fire.
When hope whispers, start to see life from a different perspective.
When hope whispers, see a new you and begin to believe that you can.
When hope whispers, keep trying until you get it done.
When hope whispers, never say never.
When hope whispers, challenge yourself and break those boundaries.
When hope whispers, transcend this present moment and create the future you desire.
When hope whispers,burn those bridges and do the impossible.
When hope whispers, fly on its wings and become that person you were born to be.

Happy Independence Day Nigeria

Happy Independence day!!!!

Nigeria is 56 today and all I can say is that let us keep hope alive. Things may be tough right now, the future may look so bleak but I encourage everyone of us to stand strong and keep faith alive. It will surely get better for this great nation.

I celebrate with my fellow countrymen today and say to every citizen, keep hope alive and be the change you want to see in this nation. It has been a long walk, but I believe we will get there. I really hope our leaders get it right this time and may our change truly come.

Happy Independence Day and God bless Nigeria. Here's a poem a wrote some time ago, "The Nigeria Of My Dreams", which I am sharing again. And this is the Nigeria of my dreams......

A country where different people with diverse cultures live together in harmony.
A country where peace reigns in every nook and cranny of the land.
A country where maternal mortality will become history.
A country where quality healthcare is available for all.
A country where education of our children will be a burning passion and priority.
A country where bad roads and poor infrastructure will be a thing of the past.
A country where youths will not have to wait endlessly for gainful employment.
A country where constant electricity will become a normal thing.
A country where leaders will lead by example and character.
A country where the youth will have true role models to look up to.
A country where evil and wickedness will stop prevailing.
A country where our strength will be seen in our diversity.
A country where hard-work and true values will be celebrated.
A country where young people can dream and find true purpose.
A country where everyone will love his neighbour as himself.
A country where hope is rekindled and faith our anchor.
A country where the next generation will have inspiring life lessons to draw from.
A country where I am secure and can dream big dreams.
A country I want to be proud of and cherish forever.
This is the Nigeria of my dreams.
