BATTLEFIELD OF MY MIND

wp-image--650060255

Recently I have been thinking a lot about my blog and the contents. I don’t have as much time as I use to when I started writing, so I really have to concentrate more on my personal journeys that would cut across more to my readers any time.

I will be taking the time out to really gather my thoughts and know exactly what those are and concentrate more on them rather than anything that pops up. I would operate in a more organized fashion and everything will have a schedule so every week all my followers/readers would know what to except next (section wise).

Before I go I would like to drop this

“The mind is a battlefield we fight in almost every second that passes. Clothe yourself with the right mind and endow yourself with the right attitude so that you will be able to embrace good thoughts that will benefit you. Shut out negativity and be sure open to all the positive things that comes with life. And lastly rejoice in the Lord knowing that He will work everything out for your good.”

Lots of Love!

THE TOUCH OF AN UNSEEN BEING

That night as I laid down on my bed

groaning in pain, grasping for breath

Seeking the help of an unseen being

Needing badly that miracle people talks about

wp-image-1757945042

I looked through the four corners of my room

Nobody was there to lend a hand

I tried to scream for help

But no word was altered as I opened my mouth again and again

wp-image-2131022127

I saw death but I wasn’t ready to go with it

Now about to take what I called my last breath

I cried to God for help from above

To give me another shot at life

wp-image--837606592

Suddenly I felt something moved through my body

Like a lightning without a thunder

I felt the earth around me trembling

But there was no buildings falling

wp-image-942921636

Immediately I could speak louder

My pain was gone without a trace

I was able to breath fine again, oh

God touched me and made me whole

LIPSTICK

wp-image--715852089

LA Girls Matte flat finish pigment gloss was my get-on lip match for this month, precisely GLG844 BACKSTAGE. Just a little gives me a bold, intense, flat matte finish and lasts the whole day on my lips. The only downside to it is that it takes me so long to get it off my lips but I can handle that, it amazing and I love it.

FACIAL MASK

I am a big fan of masks and I have a lot of them. This month MINT & LEMON CLAY MASK was my pick mainly because it delivers relief from inflammation caused by breakouts and absorbs oils to minimize shine and large pores. I like the smell, it leaves a clean finish, easy to use and it works for my oily face.

I just couldn’t end without apologizing for not dropping a post last week as usual, I was indisposed and had to take care of my health. I might be having intervals in posting but I will keep writing.

CHECK OUT HOW TO AVOID CRUSHING YOUR CRUSH

When we were young, we behaved a certain way. We most often perceived life as to having only one dimension to it, but as we grow and experience life, we start realising that there is always another side to a coin. This makes us start seeing things in other perspectives. Now, we act differently, act maturely and process faster. 

In reference to the experience I shared with you last week, “I think I crushed my crush, I made a promised to offer some solutions. With that in mind, here are some practical, experimented ways to avoid crushing your crush.

THE “DON’TS”

1. Don’t ignore the issue: 

wp-image-1109367770It is out in the open already, so try and discuss it and immediately trash it out. Pretending you didn’t hear it or switching topics is not the best way to escape from the situation at hand.

2. Don’t pity: 

wp-image--1421831034The part where you decide to pity your crush and withhold your true emotions of not really feeling anything for him/her will only hurt both parties at the end. Don’t be ashamed of letting out your own true feelings.

3. Don’t beat around the bush: 

wp-image--1429928999

Tell him/her the honest truth of your feelings, but politely and with kindness. Don’t laugh at them or remain speechless for a long period. Try as much as you can to respect their feelings and appreciate the fact that he/she opened up to you, because what he/she unravelled to you wasn’t just a day’s thought. If you have been in a similar situation, you will acknowledge that it takes a great effort, determination and courage for someone to express themselves in such a manner.

4. Don’t give excuses: 

wp-image-1364020596

There is no need of finding an excuse for not wanting him/her. Avoid using words like, “Oh it’s not you, it’s me 👎.”

5. Don’t put them on suspense: 

wp-image--357300206It is a bad thing to be rejected, but it is even worse to be given hope that is non-existent. If you makes it look like you are also interested, and that you needed some time when you are clearly not, you will end up hurting them more than you can imagine.

 

THE “DO’S”

1. Always start with an appreciative words. Example, “Wow, am flattered” or “thanks for letting me know”. Avoid words like, “really, you are?”, or “I can’t believe this”.

2. Make sure you resolve the discussion before anyone leaves. If not, you might as well be kissing your friendship goodbye.

3. Be firm about your decision, there is no room to be confused about the way you feel at that moment. It might come as a shock to you, but get over it quickly.

wp-image-1409730403

4. Try as much as you can to remain calm and speak nicely. On no occasion should you get angry because someone opened up to you about their feelings.

5. Patiently wait it out, it is only suppose to last for five (5) months at most, then resolution comes naturally. As says an adage, “time heals all wounds”.

wp-image--1727454253

AS FOR THE “CRUSH” THAT WAS CRUSHED, BEING UPSET IS NOT THE SOLUTION.

You should know it’s a two way thing, and the answer could either be yes or no. So, prepare your mind before letting the cat out of the bag. I know it hurts a lot if the response is NO, but you don’t want to lose your friend just because you can’t control your emotions.

I hope these will help in a way to deal with situations like this next time.

Lot of Love from your girl

STORY TIME| I think I crushed my crush

“Let me just say there is no room for pretence here,” was what my friend said as he asked me who was my crush while eating dinner in my living room on a hot🔥 Sunday evening. 

I had a smile on my face as I repositioned myself to think about the question carefully. Not just because no guy had ever asked me that before, but also at that moment I wasn’t expecting those words from him. He was a serious nerdy, bibliophile, and churchy kind of person. 
“Is this a trap?” I asked myself. 

I wasn’t certain, but I knew at that moment I was in dilemma, placed at a corner I couldn’t escape from. It was like being between the devil and the deep blue sea.

I am certain that some of you can correctly guess my facial expressions and my next words at this moment. I was literally in shock and wonderstrucked that I didn’t realize when I started mumbling things like, “ehhh…mmm…my crushhh? hmm… you mean my crushhh? …ehh…Ok…I am not sure I have one.” As I finally started saying something coherent. “But if I give it a thought, maybe one might pop up”. That was all I could come up with. 

I have never seen him laugh so hard like he did that day.

Finally, I regained my composure and confidently said, “none, I had one before but I got over him.”

“Overtime, I stopped giving room for crushes, because I hate the windows of hope shutting down in my face and getting my feelings all up for nothing.” I continued.

“So true,” he replied hastily. 

Now suspicious of him, I silently asked with almost a whispering voice, “do you by any chance have a crush on someone I know?”

“Oh yes, I actually do, but I am not sure she feels the same way and yes, you do know her.” He replied. 

At this point, most of you would probably have gotten the gist, but my innocent self had no clue. Out of curiosity I asked, “Who is she? Maybe I can tell you if she does.” Hahaha, I can’t believe myself also. 

“It’s you Debby, but don’t freak out.” He muttered.

My jaw dropped, couldn’t even put the morsel of swallow in my wide opened mouth, my hand just got stucked in the air. “Oh no, I don’t feel the same way, what do I do now?” I asked myself yet again.

Trying to prevent anything that would ruin our friendship, I said, “don’t worry about it, we are still friends, let’s just talk about something more interesting.”

From his facial expressions, I realized I might just have rekindled the blazing inferno.

“So, you don’t care about my emotions at all even to at least discuss it? Wow, for one second I thought maybe you might feel the same way if you knew. You can at least pretend you care. I am leaving, thanks for the dinner.” He said as he packed his plates and moved towards the kitchen. 

Still confused about the whole scenario going on, I dropped my morsel back into my plate and rushed after him. 

“I am sincerely sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings, it’s just that I don’t feel the same way. We are just friends and I would like it to remain same. I didn’t want to break your heart by telling you my true feelings. That’s why I wanted to switch topic.” I explained calmly.

As he approached the front door to exit my house, he said, “Well, either ways my heart still feels like it has just been ripped out of my chest, because I wanted to be more than just a friend.”

I played and replayed the scene over and over again and it still feels like it’s all a dream. Everything happened so fast. How did a nice dinner conversation turn into a chaotic, disastrous goodbyes. 
I think I have crushed my crush. 

To be continued!

Look out for HOW TO AVOID CRUSHING A CRUSH!

If you were in my shoes is there anything you think you would have done differently within a twinkle of an eye?

Lots of Love.

7 things I learnt as a student living abroad


It wasn’t my first time travelling out of my parent’s vicinity but it just seemed new all over. Leaving my friends and people that had grown to become family behind again, am sure it’s not me alone but it’s always super hard.

came as an international student in 2012 to study medicine at Texila American university, Georgetown, Guyana after my studies in the Philippines.

When I got here, it was not exactly what I had thought it would be but I guess part of being an adult is adapting and trying to make things work. A lot needed to change and all responsibility was on me now, every decision I make counts. 

Let me tip you in on some of the things I learnt that might be useful 

1. You call the shots now: It’s absolute freedom! No one is supervising or instructing you. You are so on your own especially with issues that needs immediate attention. Parents and friends could chip in occasionally but the decision making are all you now, so make the right ones. 

2. Try comfortable but affordable: I would not advice you to go cheap on things that can bring you comfort especially if you are staying more than a year but don’t over do it, get necessities only and be wise about your spending. Go for things that would make studying and living conducive for you to attain excellence. Like I tell my friends, the outside world might be chaotic but as long as my home makes me smile as I step in, I will be fine.

3. Make friends not enemies: You are in a new country to study, I get it, also try to mingle with people in it and experience their culture and the jaw dropping wonders it brings. You can also build amazing relationships and network from there. 

4. Communicate with your people often: Technology has made things much more easier, so make use of it. If you can’t call, drop a message, check up on them. It will ease their worries and also keep you calm to focus. My rule, “If you miss them, beep them”.

5. Move around: I had a triangular movement for a while in Philippines. It went like this; home→church→home→school→home. Few weeks before leaving the country I started exploring and I realized I had not seen enough of the country but it was time to pack my bags and say goodbye. I didn’t make the same mistake in Guyana, I take any chances I got to travel around. Go out and see the interesting places in the country, 

6. Learn the language: I wish someone had informed me earlier about this I would have saved a lot of money. Immediately I speak, the prices of items automatically increases because it is so obvious I am a foreigner. It might seem irrelevant but if you are staying more than a year I advice you should, especially for shopping and communication sake, learn the basics.

7. Take your studies seriously: if you succeed, it’s all for you. I am not saying don’t have a time out but don’t place the wrong things as priority. Study hard, participate in class, ask questions, submit assignments on time, show up for class and so on, am sure you got the point already.

I know it’s tough to be a student in a foreign land at the beginning, as time goes on you will get used to it. I hope this was insightful enough to help someone..

2months+ blogging, 200+ followers

Today is a free pen down, I am still shocked, 200followers in 2months! These are real people right? Haha, I know they are real. It might be small to some but to me it alot of people. Before we continue let’s do the happy dance.

I didn’t post anything for 100 followers and I don’t want to seem ungrateful to all that took effort and time to check up, liked, commented, shared and reblogged my posts. I really appreciate you all and I want to say a big thank you for the love and support, you are in my ventricles and I care about you all!

When I started this blog I didn’t know what to expect but I knew I wanted to write and be disciplined about it. I wanted a place that will give me the chance to speak loud with my words, a channel to inspire people not to give up no matter what life throws at them but to FIGHT, STAY STRONG, BE POSITIVE, ENVISION GREATNESS AND SOAR HIGH.

I am glad so far I have been able to achieve that and still intend on doing better. Since I joined this community, I have met great and amazing people, fascinating and inspiring writers, persons I connected with and now call friends. I read alot of article sometimes I get over saturated, I was reviewed and have also reviewed people. In short, the journey so far has been great!

Dropping a message before I round off. Start it now! What are you waiting on? Trust me there is never a good time to do it, don’t wait anymore for the perfect moment because that time might never come. Begin small and before you know it, you are running a big enterprise, empire, business or a community as for WordPress.

Thank you all for putting a smile on my face! From your girl omobim1. Love you all!

DIARY OF AN INTERN #2| thank you mama


Image-9580_1It was my turn to rotate in Labour room this week, I moved up and down attending to patients of different ages, colors, races and shapes, they all had one thing in common as they were brought into the room, PAIN. They were either weeping or screaming, and couple of minutes or hours later, pastering around, rolling on the bed or squatting to push out the baby.

I was also moved to the birthing room where the real deal (babies delivery) takes place. The first few hours was somewhat terrifying and so emotional for me just like it was while rotating as a student. 

As I stood there assisting, I wondered and kept asking myself, “how will this big head come through this small hole?” Though I knew the answer, it still didn’t stop me from asking the question over and over again till the delivery was done on each patient. 

Following my emotional meltdown is the part that brings the greatest joy to my heart and smile on my face, the sight of the baby and then the cry. The mother can finally breath fine again!

The pain, the push, the cry, the scream, all these my mama had to go through several times again. She had the option of abortion at her discretion but she chose to have all of us (7 in total). She endured it all and still stood by us as we grew. 

“Motherhood is tough 24 hour job, no pay, no day off, sometimes it is unappreciated, but yet resignation is impossible. A mother is a woman who was created by God to bring love, joy, happiness and caring into his world. You did all this and made sure our family keeps going.” Motherhood poetry.

Firsthand, I see what you had to go through Mama. You put up with so much and still loves us the same. Words cannot describe fully how special you are to me, I know daddy will become jealous but you are my first love too. I want to use this opportunity to say THANK YOU MAMA KE, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!

Proverbs 31vs10 says, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.”

I am celebrating my two mothers 

My sis during pregnancy
My sis and her baby

To my two lovely mommies, looking young and fresh, always turning 20 every year.. I love you, I miss you and I can’t wait to step into your shoes and be a wonderful mom too just like you have been to me always.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO MY MIMSY, SISTY AND TO ALL THE WONDERFUL MOTHERS OUT THERE! 

To appreciate your mama:

*Give her a “thank you kiss” for keeping your pregnancy whether it was planned or not.

*If you cannot get to her like me, message her, tell her how much you love her and how grateful you are.
