Musings

It's the evening and I see Lizzo is trending on twitter and also Clubhouse. Admittedly I do not follow her and so I do not know much about her. I click to see what the furore is all about and I see it is to do with her doing a 10 day detox. Hmmm. I'll give my 'surface level' response. What is the big deal? But truly to do this topic justice let us go into more detail. The body positivity movement There is a really good article on BBC bitesize that discusses the history of the body positivity...
I came across a post on social media that piqued my interest and got me thinking about apologies. The post is below so you have an idea of what I am talking about. I highlighted the ones that really resonated with me.

Before I delve into it let us look at the definition of Tokenism. According to Google, as provided by Ocrod Languages, tokenism is defined as: the practice of making only a perfunctory or symbolic effort to do a particular thing, especially by recruiting a small number of people from under-represented groups in order to give the appearance of sexual or racial equality within a workforce. Let us go even further by defining what perfunctory means-- (of an action) carried out without real...
Hey, how's it going? One thing that I am learning is the importance of being there for yourself. I'm not talking about self love but something else. Even when friends or family are there for you it is still important to be there for yourself. You cannot outsource it. But, why is it important to do it? It minimises offence. People have all the best intentions in the world but sometimes when push comes to shove they are nowhere to be found. Instead of being offended, try to focus on what you can...

Hey, how's it going? Unless you've been living under a rock I guess you too have been affected by Coronavirus due to having to self isolate. I mean, the whole world has been right? But no need to hash out the details, we've got the news for that. And to be honest I don't want this to be another virus related piece because, let's be honest there are loads of those around. And there's nothing wrong with that. I just don't want that. So, apart from the title, this post will not be about that-...
Hello! :) I love doing these end of year posts and 2019 is no different. Unlike previous posts(2015,2016, 2017,2018,) I will focus on the most important lesson I learnt this year. Resilience I thought I knew what resilience was but boy was I wrong. Life can be tough, challenging and downright unfair at times and resilience is one of the things that will keep you going. I'm not talking about burying your feelings and moving on. I'm talking about acknowledging that this season is challenging but...

On December 1st 2019 I turned 25 (woo)! I had a great time and did quite a few activities. As is always the tradition on my website, I do birthday blogs (21,23,24,) because, why not? 25 is no exception :D Birthday celebrations began on Friday 29th November and I went to Afrobeats Karaoke with a few friends. I had a lovely time though I did find it nerve-racking to be singing/karaoking in front of strangers lol. Next time I'll just get a private booth and sing to my hearts content like I did for...
Heyyy! It’s been ages since I last wrote here lol. Apologies for that. I took some time off and then some. I’m going to talk about my Summer and how interesting it was. Plus I think it’s good to reminisce about especially considering that I start back at university tomorrow! I think it’s fair for me to say that July was the best month for me! Parties after parties and gallivanting everywhere. My weekends were jam packed with fun galore😉 . To be honest my Summer was extremely long. It...

Hey! Apologies for my absence last week. I was at training and it overran. So much has happened this past week that I wonder if what I wanted to discuss before is still relevant. This week saw the entrance of a new government. To be honest I was indifferent. The only thing I’m happy about is that there is one party in power. Another coalition would have been detrimental to the progression of this country I feel. What I wanted to talk about was a certain advert that got the whole nation...
I can’t say that this week got off to the best of starts but everything worked out in the end. Somewhat😉
