Women Making It Better For Others…Thandiwrap!

On my daily travels I come across so many men and women making incredible contributions to the well being and lives of others. Sometimes what they do is not recognised or validated because it doesn’t come with much fanfare. In these times of grandiosity, modesty is often ignored; even jeered at and other forms of […]

MAKING THINGS BETTER: It’s Okay To Feel Excited!

Reading the papers every day, reading the exchange of comments on social media, and indeed listening to the news, I think it would be fair to suggest that the bulk of information around is negative and predicting further gloom and doom. This is perfectly understandable based on all the various occurrences taking place around the […]

MAKING IT BETTER: My Own Personal Rant!(3)

As I left the shores of the mother land, our great nation, full of hope and determination, thinking about how at the end of the day regardless of any other nationality I may be able to claim, Nigeria is my true home and the only country I can truly say is mine; I was given […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Speaking My Truth!

In this column, every so often I started writing a section called ‘my own personal rant’ (which was warmly received…thank you very much) I would like to add another section I am calling ‘speaking my truth’ that is making its debut today. During this bizarre Trump era, we have heard of alternative facts, we are […]

Inauguration Week Through My Eyes!

I had decided I wanted to get a full sense of the experience of the inauguration of the Governor of Ekiti state Dr John Kayode Fayemi and the First lady Bisi Adeleye Fayemi. I had never been to the inauguration of a Governor and this one was close to my heart for many reasons, so […]

MAKING IT BETTER: When Do You Know You Need To Get Some Help?

Have you heard the expression you don’t have to be mad to have mental health problems? Well it is true and this is the case more so than ever in today’s fast paced society that we live in. Over the past few weeks you might have noticed I have laid emphasis in paying closer attention to people […]

MAKING IT BETTER: A Moment To Pause and Give Thanks….

So another dear sister lost her own personal health battles a week ago and was taken from us far too young.  I salute you dear sister. Go well on your journey home to rest.  Your elegance, grace, charm, intellect will always be remembered by those of us who were privileged to spend time with you. […]

The Healing Quality of Healthy Interpersonal Connections

The Healing Quality of Healthy Interpersonal Connections

Recently I was once again reminded of the strength of and need for relationships that hold up and survive the test of time. A good friend, sister and someone I can confidently say I consider my family rolled up into the UK a few weeks ago. We hadn’t seen or spoken to each other in […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Does Fear and Anxiety Hold You Back?

Let’s start off being very clear that fear and anxiety are not the same thing. I have had my share of both. Fear is a response to a real or perceived imminent threat. Anxiety on the other hand is an emotional fear of expected or anticipated threat. It can be an unfocussed worry; feelings of […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Compassion, Empathy, Humanity

These are words that sound quite simple and straightforward but in reality are quite powerful and mean so much. As human beings we have been created to have these qualities inherently within us. These are some of the gifts that have been bestowed upon us as human beings that separate us from the animal kingdom. […]
