FOR THE LOVE OF MF( and my lil Duru...)

...ayyam back ;-)

33 days! Dayum!! I mean dayum!!! That's a reallyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy long time to be away from my favorite space. The past few weeks have rolled by faster than any two-legged or four-legged mobile thing I can describe. I was honestly going to stay off for a few days until all the work and travels caught up with me...oh well, the life of a working lady.

I've missed everyone *cuddly ehugs* I shall endeavor to churn out some fine stories and get myself back in the 15-for-15 challenge before I get beaten to the title *tongue out to all the bad belle Durus*.

So you wondering either aloud or silently; what has she been up to? A whole lot...this and that but mostly making out more time to be attentive to my inner witness. I read an inspiring piece today written by a good (and surprisingly dear writer friend - in a short while), he spoke of this beautiful encounter with this beautiful creature in this story. I sincerely hope that as individuals we strive daily to do a simple good to another fellow. It's easier to help people you know and love but the true test plus show of love is when your act of kindness is directed to an unfamiliar person. Make up your mind to help, without expectations of being repaid.

I wish I could share my past week with you but all the pictures are yet to come in so I won't be doing this post no justice with half story BUT one thing that stood out for me through it all was my firsthand experience of "Made-in-Aba". Nna mehn my week-long journey saw me travel through Aba and in my bid to judiciously use up time since I had some hours to myself, I decided to explore salon(s) in Aba. Thought to make my hair and get my nails done. Lo and behold! I entered into this salon filled with guys excitement filling me up because I know guys generally do well at women's trade. The salon had no trappings of beautiful piece of art but I didn't mind. I sat down to be treated royally with my legs crossed in proper English manner. One of the guys attended to me, fixed my nails which by the way took forever(but it was okay as I also know men are very meticulous when it comes to fixing nails and hair). All done, I thought I liked what I saw(sometime around 8pm in the dark) until morning when I noticed one of the nails had pulled off and another was shaky. At the time of writing this only 4 days after, 4 nails are off already! Choi. Everything about the nails used is just different; texture, name it. Big salute to my Aba boys, una do well.

 It's bye for now but this time around to be back soon...break aff finish.

Do have an amazing week as we remember to say a prayer for our country. #forthesakeofNigeria, (feel free to spread that on social media) declare a personal fast and make positive declarations concerning this country. I've had strong impressions in my heart to say a prayer everyday for this country. You know the portion of the Bible that talks about rumors of war and wars; do not panic. They will remain rumors. It will shock people that despite the intense tension in the land as a result of the upcoming elections, no violence will result. I urge us to create positive scenarios in our minds. Let us not feed on negative news. I don't care which city you are living in or the on-goings around you, it can change with your words, thoughts and confessions. #forthesakeofNigeria please say a prayer and sheathe your daggers.

Peace people. Enjoy my many faces through--------------> Benin to Onitsha to Asaba to Owerri to Aba to Port Harcourt and then the exquisite Uyo capital of Akwa Ibom state.

even the passers-by knew it was my 1st time in Abia...choi

Team bonding...
Petite and fit...
