WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP? I too can

Welcome to a new week Tribe!  Dear Seme Woman, I am dedicating this to us all Let me start by wishing you a Happy International Women's Day celebration.  You are the real MVPs. As the theme of this year's celebration implies "Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world. We salute our frontline workers and every woman out there who is working effortlessly to secure our world against COVID-19. Well done girl! Women in leadership have been a topic going on for too long now. Women are underrepresented at all levels of decision-making (even in families) worldwide. Research has it that women serve as Head of State or government in only 22 countries, and 199 countries ( including our dear Nigeria) have never had a woman in leadership. Mummy Dearest, my first Teacher and Leader. Educationist par excellence! This year's International Women's Day celebration is also charged to #ChoosetoChallenge, and contrary to what the world used to see women as, wom

WORLD BOOK DAY... "Share a story".

"I am a part of everything that I have read".   Theodore Roosevelt Today is World Book Day! March 4th of every year has been dedicated to celebrating literature and reading, encouraging children to develop their interest and love for books. This celebration is usually made fun for kids by encouraging them to dress up as their favorite literary character. Before you begin to say "this isn't for me but kids". No, reading is not meant for children alone. In short, it is an adult who will teach a child to read in the first place and it is in reading you get information to share and to teach others.  But how can you teach when you have nothing inside of you. Now the question is, are you reading?  I find this very funny, but almost everyone is guilty of this, myself inclusive. People have just chosen to become lazy in getting informed. Rather than reading to get information about a particular thing we would rather just follow whatever anyone is saying. Especially with

I AM NOT CRAZY I PROMISE. I am only wired differently.

 Hey Tribe! A  very Happy New Month felicitation to you all (Please I just felt like speaking grammar). Lol Wow! March is here already. How is the year treating you so far?  Good? Fair? Or just there. Whatever your answer is. I hope you are taking your time to work on your set goals for the year. By the way, how far have you gone with executing the goals in your VISION BOARD for the year? Or you didn't know about it before now? well, now you do.  So get to work and go make one for yourself. Remember, those goals and visions won't come to being if you do not plan and take the necessary steps towards achieving them.  Apart from setting goals and mapping out plans to achieve them, another very important things to do is realizing who you are and knowing how your form (personality) works. That is knowing your personality traits. This will also help you to know how to manage people and your relationship with them better. I tell you a lot of unnecessary arguments and altercation can

CHILDREN ARE GOD'S GIFT. SO WHAT NOW?

Ok, so on today's conversations, I stumbled on something that has constantly been a reoccurring internet sensation; Push gift or push present. Ha!  Ha ha!!  Ha ha ha!!! First thing first, I just started hearing about the word "Push gifts/push presents" a few years back. In short, the first time I heard about push gift was during my bridal shower when I was getting married in 2014. *now shinning my teeth* I am gradually becoming an elder in the game. Even the Bridal shower was alien to me at that time, as the chief village girl that I am.  *Don't jealous me please*. This has become a common practice everywhere in the world now. ( Or maybe not,  because It is not yet in my village) lol. "Believe it or not, push presents have a long history, even though the idea just became popular in the United States. In the United Kingdom and India, the push present has been around for hundreds of years, possibly even longer. There are some claims that these baby baubles have bee

ON BECOMING. ONE MORE TIRED BEFORE...

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..." &qu

A SPECIAL VALENTINE LETTER

Dear Seme Tribe, I pray you to have a sweet Valentine's day and many reasons to grow in all your relationships. For those already married I pray for a new season of bursting into a deeper love relationship with your spouse. I pray your love grows deeper daily and that your spouse LOVES you. I pray that your marriage will be a representation to the world of God's madly in a love relationship with his bride. For those engaged, I pray for direction and resources in planning your big day and starting this new chapter. I pray for blending money, property, extended families, and lives. I pray you take sound marriage counseling advice and it stretches you more into a sacrifice for your spouse to be. May he give you confidence and cast out all fear from your heart. For those in committed relationships awaiting God's direction on the next steps, I pray that He guides you. May He give you clarity, wisdom, and peace, make your path straight to see clearly if this is the person God has
