MAKING IT BETTER: The Art Of Self Love Is A Precious Gift If We Understand It

We are in pursuit of power, fame and wealth in a way we have never been before. Whereas where it really counts we already have what we seek, it is there all the time. If we give it time it will make itself known. Your core sense of identity shapes your life. Who you think […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Are Men Really From Mars And Women From Venus?

People tend to ask couples who have been married for long periods what their secrets are. I always find it an odd question because by virtue of the word secret,that would suggest it is not something you want to share. Besides one couple’s successful ingredients may not work for another. The two most important questions […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Feeling Lonely…Being Alone, What’s The Difference?

A friend called me a few days ago from South America. We are very good friends but don’t get to speak to one another often. When I saw the international alert on my phone, for some reason I thought it might be her. She is a very accomplished woman who I would easily say is […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Names, Titles, Roles and Identities

Atinuke, Abike, Oyetoke, Gloria in excelcis…!! These are just some of the names I was given at birth. The others are all similar, celebratory, glorifying and exalting. It’s that time again when we celebrate international women’s day and of all the things I had initially contemplated writing about, I eventually settled for focusing on myself. […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Love Is Really The Answer…Isn’t It?

I’m almost embarrassed to ask this question because I feel as if I should know better, but I have had to get really serious about my state of mind and subsequent thinking recently. So let’s have some real talk here folks. Over the last few months I have been angry, irritated, anxious, and even almost […]

MAKING IT BETTER: A Minister By Any Other Name…..

Dear readers it’s been a short while since I was with you and I have missed you! I’m hoping the feeling was mutual. I have had a few weeks of stress and called into question my role or title as Minister. I know this sounds very dramatic but at the time it felt that way. […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Best Wishes For The New Year!

Happy 2017 dear readers! It’s good to be back with you again in this New Year. I hope you had a soft, peaceful entry into the year and I pray this continues throughout 2017, in addition to whatever else you might require to give you and your loved ones the best possible year. I am […]

MAKING IT BETTER: Grief, Mourning, Memories…and 2017

This is a time for celebration for many, but it will also be a time when many might be in mourning or grieving over some recent or past loss. I lost my beloved brother a week before Christmas four years ago. I can hardly believe it’s been that long. In my mind it was only […]

MAKING IT BETTER: …..Saying Goodbye To 2016!

As the curtain begins to close on the year 2016, I pray it quietly exits by itself, taking no more prisoners, causalities, causes no more heartbreak and disasters. The year has gone quickly but it was packed solidly with unforgettable events and with such pain. I always feel anxious as we come to the end […]

MAKING IT BETTER: The Struggle To Be Authentic In A Deeply Inauthentic World!

I am a member of a seminary of Ordained Ministers who are part of the wider community and I have been shocked, appalled and I daresay even frightened at the recent ferocity of discord that has recently erupted amongst them. We are all part of a face book thread of communication and through our conversations […]
