Hey Tribe!

How are you all doing today? Happy New week.

This could be your Monday Morning Motivation but I had a very tiring weekend, probably the most tiring weekend in my whole 33 years of existence, and all I want to do this week is to lay in my bed and sleep *rolling my eyes*. Remember sleep used to be my day job until adulthood, and Tana and Tilda happened. 

In my tired mood, all I wanted to do after church yesterday was to rest my tired self but I still had to drag myself to attend to the needs of my little humans (Tana and Tilda ) which is usually an endless one by the way. 

So, I managed to fix lunch and instructed them to tidy up the house afterward. 

Trust Matana (my four years old) to ask, "so what will Mummy be doing?"

"Well, Mummy will be sleeping" I replied. 

"Why?" she asked

"Because I cannot come and go and kill myself picking up toys that I did not play with"

"Ahhh! Mummy, does toys kill someone? Because I think..."

"Matana Onoseta Omenai!" I screamed.

"One more question and thought from you there and I will bundle you straight to Uzebba"

With the last strength left in me, I just laid on the floor and snoozed off to my village and by the time I returned the entire place was well arranged.

Wait, what! Did I just assign duties to these little humans and they actually carried them out? 

Trust me I had to do a little break dancing because I could not believe my eyes. I remembered all the struggles when I first had them. Omo! It wasn't a funny something. I mean all the crying and always "wanting Mummy" as though I was their oxygen. Trust me they still want mummy but just seeing them being independent of their own and being able to carry out a task without supervision just gives me a certain kind of joy.  and it gives me hope also. 

It gives me hope knowing that every phase will soon pass in a matter of time. 

You see, lately I've been so tired, mentally and emotionally, (Semes Nooks is a haven so I bear my mind here exactly as it is) that I felt like quitting. So many things to do with very little or no time at all. 

This has reassured me that everything will be alright soon. 

I've learned to let go and let things be, with time it will sort itself out.

I have learned that no matter the discouragement, to always remember that every day is a new beginning to take a deep breath, smile, and start again. 

I know I can be all over the place sometimes, if not all the time. Sometimes I ask myself “who send me message sef? Lol, but we have to keep moving regardless. 

I haven't been giving the Tribe her due attention,  and thanks to you all for reaching out. Each time I feel like quitting and I get those calls and messages, I just feel like "oh God, so you read my blog?" The love is so overwhelming for real. 

I know I'm lagging with our new series CONVERSATIONS WITH SEME  please forgive me. I promise to do better. I have received a lot of contributions from the Tribe. Be sure to stay tuned because we will be serving them hot shortly. 

Here's to an amazing week ahead. And remember "It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, the ability to triumph begins with you. Always.” – Oprah Winfrey.
