Who am I?

Hello lovely people.

This is my very first blog post on WordPress which I posted on the 13th of April 2016, I had no idea what to expect but I kept blogging because my spirit kept haunting me for words to come out.

Kindly read!!

This is a question we all ask ourselves frequently. Recognizing who we are, signifies that we are ready to move on to the next level, quite a number of people ask themselves this question at almost every stage of their life. This brings home to us that people who ask this question are generally struggling with their personality and are searching for a core sense of themselves.

When I was in high school, I constantly used to ask myself the same question until a friend in the choir group noticed my dismay which led her into counselling me to stop RUNNING away from my SHADOW, I actually didn’t know what she was talking about until ten years later, I finally had to make a bold stop to face my shadow…the darker part of myself….fear of  failure.

Now I know who I am, I have learnt to welcome and embrace the darker part of myself, my flaws, bad habits, negative emotions, FEAR OF FAILURE…Once you have discovered the light, there is a new sense of self-waiting to be born, this is the time you get to realize there is more to who you are with a whole lot of potentials you have that needs to be exploited….

I Am Loosing My Mind

When darkness falls

It seems I’m in the light

When the sun rises

It seems like the moon is shining

I see a shadow tailing after me

I am loosing my mind…

I see you walking to me

Arms stretched out to hold me

And when I want to pull you into my arms

It seems you vanish into thin air

I am loosing my mind…

Have you found yourself in a situation where you were deeply in love and it happened that your loved one is gone forever…you crave to have them back in your life, held in your arms, cuddled together in bed, you try to reach out but they are just gone forever…

Don’t loose it!

You will be fine…they are there watching and loving you wishing for you to move on and be happy.

Power Descend On Me

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

Lights will shine down creating  paths for me to safety

As I walk down in picking up fallen buds

Power will descend on me strengthening the inner me.

It’s quite unfortunate I have found myself in a place recently where writing and posting has been tough for me, bad internet connection and so called distractions keeps getting in my way….But getting home this weekend once again and seeing the daily post got me thinking….

There should be no hindrances to success, joy and freedom. Take up what is yours, conquer every obstacle in your way and live no room for excuses….eddaz

Have a great weekend lovelies….💞💝

A Quote by Nelson Mandela

There’s no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.

We all have our goals and desires, who doesn’t? Not me anyways.Strive hard, don’t stop, keep moving, you will always meet tough heartbreaking challenges along the way, but never give up, you will get there.

Stop Running From Your Shadow

In response to this week’s discover challenge –  I would like to share with others a piece of advice I received from someone back in high school.

“Stop running from your shadow”. She called me alone to say just that short sentence to me which I pondered on for a pretty long time without actually accepting the truth behind it.

Back in high school I was someone I would say was POPULAR without a particular reason, I just didn’t get it, I never understood the logic behind my popularity. I was a very simple, level headed lady in school, I loved to be alone but unfortunately for me people loved me, they wanted to be friends with me, they wanted me to lead them, guess what I hated all these with a passion 😏, I felt it was too much of a burden for me to carry, all I wanted was my peace, just a few friends, study and go home to my best friend (Television).

It was that way for me all through my years of studying, and until I got my first job, it was still staring right into my face, people wanted to be like me, listen to me, do as I do, seriously I never understood it. Until I met someone else again who told me to just be myself and face my fears. I sat myself down to review the path of life I had lived and was living, I realized that I had been lucky, I would have lost a lot due to my insecurity and shadow fear 😊😊

Now I can face my fears, I can face responsibilities, I realized I didn’t need to be best of friends with all these people but to be attentive to their feelings, now I talk to them, I listen, I don’t mind if they wish to do as I do, I love making people smile. My colleagues love to dress the way I dress, up to my hairstyle, and really I have more confidence now, I encourage them, I give them tips on dating and fashion, I have also learnt not to take things personally due to my emotions. The benefit of all this is that it has opened doors of opportunities for me. My accepting my shadow has promoted me to an upstanding individual. I’m blessed that it wasn’t too late for me to come to terms with it.

My piece of advice based on my pervious experience is to never run from your shadow.
