As humans, we are bound to make a whole lot of mistakes in our lifetime. However, here are 7 life threatening mistakes you should never make

1.    Relying on inheritance: This is a one way road to everlasting laziness. Laziness that might lead to drinking, drugs or obesity and severe depression. An inheritance should be an added advantage and not your ONLY source of living.

2.   Living without purpose and vision:  Without a purpose or vision or dream, you are like a nylon carried about by different winds. No direction, no goals. Sometimes the wind blows in your favour, other times, it doesn’t. No control over your future which can lead to a frustrated life.

3.   Alcohol, drug use and crime: I put these three together because they hand in hand most times. It often starts with constant drinking then smoking. As you progress, your clique of friends change and before you know it, they introduce you to drugs and then if you are ‘qualified’, you move to the next level which is crime. When your constant place of relaxation becomes drinking bars, stop and think.

4.   Sexual Immorality: Many grow up in a home where there is no parental restraint or control in the religious aspect. The parents are not really concerned, they just want to make sure you are good in school and turn out responsible. Some see this as a headway to date and sleep around. This is a mistake that when you fall into, you continue to go deep and deep into. Sometimes, you even begin to experiment outside the natural order of man and involve in acts that rub you of your dignity. then backsliding sets in not just spiritually but emotionally, physically, academically. Sexual immorality affects you physically, spiritually, emotionally and most times you loose touch with reality.

5.   Living without God: If you choose this path, a lot of hard work and disappointments will be associated with you. God is our creator, whatever the religion, He is always acknowledged. You cannot live a successful, happy and peace filled life without God. It’s one of the gravest mistakes a human can choose to make.

6.   Wrong marital choice: It is often said that a bad marriage is hell on earth and it is. Making the wrong choice of a marital partner can lead you to hell, rub you of eternal happiness, make you live in constant sin every day, kill or diminish your dreams, make you age faster than possible. Your marital partner is that face you wake up the rest of your life to see beside you, is that person you share your home with forever, is that person you remain forever obligated to after Christ. There is no escape route. If you choose to divorce and marry another, you live in sin.

7.   Love of money: The bible said that the love of money is the root of all evil (ist Tim 6 v 10). When you love money, you are bound to be involved in all kinds of evil. It’s okay to want money. To have a desired and comfortable life, money is one of the major things needed. But when money is the driving force of your life, sit back and think twice because if you continue with that, you are bound to have a very open mind to involve in anything no matter how unthinkable just to get your desired goal.

There you have it, 7 mistakes you should think thrice before falling into. Any thoughts? Please share.

Personal memoirs - battles with my Mind

So I have one small long gist for you people. My mind has been fighting me. Lol yes it has a mind of it's own, true talk. The battle that goes on in my mind everyday is a real struggle. Most times it's funny e.g
#In church


Her leg ached.
Her waist ached.
Her neck ached.
Dinma was all shades of uncomfortable and didn't know which part of herself to rely on. She turned her neck in quick rotations in an attempt to reduce the ache but it did her no good. She cursed within. This was supposed to be a fun and happy day, not one filled with aches from all parts of her body. The fact that She had been an usher did no good for her. Two hours is a long time to have been standing. She sighed resignedly. The girl beside her turned and smiled at her sympathetically, she managed a weak smile in return. The Security officials were still perambulating, disappearing and reappearing, she dared not sit. If she wasn't spotted from the podium, the officials would certainly see her. Only one person had been excused to sit because of illness and it had been announced to avoid display of smart stupidity.
She picked the ceremony booklet from her seat for the umpteenth time to check progress. There was still three pages …


Good morning lovelies. Hope you had a lovely weekend? If not, read here.

I stay with my younger brother and we both are night crawlers but sometimes sleep overtakes us while waiting for the light to be restored. The light is not static but we know the timelines. And while waiting, we keep busy with our phone doing the little work we can do until light is restored. And whenever we sleep off while using our phones, it's usually till the next morning when the light is off and our battery is dead or flat.
