Glad to be back; the past couple of months have been truly challenging and through it all am grateful that God has kept me and my family. Painful and trying moments that change our lives will always come and it’s important that these experiences don’t change who we are, let’s allow them to make us stronger, kinder, more empathetic and smarter beings.
We are in the last quarter of the year; my family and l are grateful to the Lord Almighty for the gift of life. It is very important to acknowledge that we are HERE for a reason, a reason bigger than breathing and merely just living. But what is that reason? What is the purpose of your existence? Have you figured that out yet? The truth is that many of us are still unsure and are wondering in a daze what our reason for existence is. I must admit that often l also find myself lost in thoughts of what and how exactly l should fulfill my destiny.
One could write a book about the challenges that women still face in this day and age. Sometimes l ask myself, will things ever truly change? Is true equality something women will only dream about and hope for? Why is it ok for women to suffer the way they do?
Today am bringing you the best of both worlds; potato and egg salad. This salad is versatile enough to be served as breakfast, lunch or dinner. Its easy to make and very tasty.
Weekends are a great time to enjoy food with loved ones. Just because the festive season has come and gone, it doesn’t mean that time for enjoying food is over. We bond over food, cry over food, unite and laugh over food etc., below is a simple yet tasty recipe that easy to make but tasty.
l love the comfort that Sunday meals offer the family as a whole. Here is a healthy dish that you and your family may enjoy in this scorching summer heat.

It’s a new year; l am hoping you all had a fantastic 2017 and l am wishing you all an even greater 2018.
With the start of each year, we find ourselves scribbling our goals for the year on some notepad, with the greatest desire to achieve them and make a success of the year.
Without a doubt, social media has positively changed and influenced the process of communication between friends and family regardless of distance. Today, within seconds, multiple people from different continents can have a real time conversation which otherwise would not have been possible without the technological advances that we are enjoying today.
Hope you all are doing great this festive season. Am on a month long holiday and I must say I haven’t felt this relaxed in a while. 😃
Today am inspired to share with you two of some of my favorite scents, particularly the ones I have been enjoying this holiday period, namely Roberto Cavalli Nero Assoluto and Alaia Paris.
The Significance of Christmas is known to men, all over the world. Though it is true that Christmas is celebrated as the day of the Birth of Christ into this world, yet it also symbolizes a very deeply significant truth of the spiritual life. Jesus Christ is the very personification of Divinity. He was born at a time when ignorance, superstition, greed, hatred and hypocrisy prevailed upon the land. Purity was forgotten and morality was neglected.
In the midst of these conditions, Christ was born and He worked a transformation in the lives of people. He gave a new and a spiritual turn to the lives of man. There came a change upon the land. People started upon a new way of life. Thus a new era dawned for the world.
In that period the seeker has no thought of God or higher spiritual life. He lives a life of lust, anger, greed, deluded attachment, pride and jealousy. If the seeker must enter into a new life of spiritual aspiration, purity and devotion, then the Christ-spirit must take its birth within his heart. That is the real Christmas when the Divine element begins to express itself in the heart of the man. From then onward, light begins to shine where darkness was before.
The above point of deep significance tells that the spiritual awakening comes to the seeker, who is perfectly humble and “meek” and “poor in spirit.” The quality of true humility is one of the indispensable fundamentals. Then we find simplicity, holiness and the renunciation of all desire for worldly wealth and pride of learning. Thirdly, even as Christ was born unknown to the world and in the obscurity of darkness, even so, the advent of the Christ-spirit takes place in the inwardness of man when there is total self-effacement self-abnegation.
