2020: Redemption Season

I could start by making excuses for my long absence and for the commitments that I made to my readers but failed to fulfill. I might even begin with a review of last year's many challenges and how I reacted in the face of every one of them. Then again, I could start by apologising… Continue reading 2020: Redemption Season

Celebrating a Milestone

I know you're used to me writing about blogging, writing, and productivity, but today's post is going to be a bit different from my other posts. Today's post is a personal post: it's about me. (Don't worry, I'm not about to launch into a long, boring composition about myself or my favourite colour.) Sooo last… Continue reading Celebrating a Milestone

An Open Letter to Bloggers Who Feel Like Giving Up

It feels so terrible to invest so much time and effort in your blog and still fail to achieve any results. But it feels much worse when you've been blogging for quite some time — say, a year and six months — and your metrics (traffic, views, comments, post shares, etc) are nothing much to… Continue reading An Open Letter to Bloggers Who Feel Like Giving Up

On Pleasing Your Parents at the Expense of Your Happiness

I sat beside my younger sister while she filled in the registration form for the upcoming Senior School Certificate Examination. She needed my assistance with the registration because there were some technical terms that she didn't understand, and also because she wasn't sure which subjects she should choose. The little time I spent assisting her… Continue reading On Pleasing Your Parents at the Expense of Your Happiness

There comes a time in our lives when our challenges seem more than we can handle and we're faced with the option of staying strong, striving to achieve a dream that we believe in, or giving up, which would be the much easier approach to take.

How to Deal with Toxic Parents

There's nothing worse than being emotionally abused, unless you're being abused by the very people who raised you – your parents.

Open Letter to Every Teen || You Can Be Everything You Want to Be

As kids, the future was a beautiful, frightening thing to look forward to, and as kids, we all wanted to be doctors and lawyers. We didn't want to know how possible or impossible that was, we just wanted to be doctors and lawyers so badly. And then, time happened: years passed and we became teenagers.… Continue reading Open Letter to Every Teen || You Can Be Everything You Want to Be

Understanding The Dyslexic Child: For Parents And Teachers

Dear Parents and Teachers, if your child or pupil responds poorly to your methods of teaching, don't question his intelligence; just explore and employ different methods until you achieve the results you want. July last year, I assumed the position of an assistant primary school teacher.

I Wanted to Stop Blogging For Good

I find it ironic that in my last article where I taught how to beat procrastination, I promised to publish the second part of the article soon, yet I procrastinated. “Soon” should have been two days after. If you read the article, though, you'd remember I mentioned that I had a fever at the time.… Continue reading I Wanted to Stop Blogging For Good

That Long Haul To Success

The easiest thing you can do in life is give up on something, on someone, on your dreams. It's also the worst thing you can do to yourself. Today's prompt reminded me of a story I read on Facebook some years ago. A man wanted to teach his ten-year-old son some life lessons so he… Continue reading That Long Haul To Success
