Good Deeds

The world can be a pretty rough place. With crime and animosity there seems to be more bad than good. However, as citizens I believe it is our job to help make the world a better place. Your impact in the world may be small but every little bit helps. One of the ways in which you can help make the world a better place is through volunteering. The school that I attended previously required community service. One of my most influential community service projects that I was involved in was tutoring. I tutored low performing elementary students in reading. The majority of these students came from low income families. They were not only impacted by poverty but by academic struggles which often correspond with poverty. It was extremely fulfilling to see the improvement of the students each week. I took the initiative to not only tutor but to be a mentor to the students. I did not only tutor elementary students. I tutored middle schoolers as well. It was a different dynamic with the middle schoolers but I still felt a sense of gratification.
Apart from tutoring, I have also volunteered at the local Children’s Museum. The children’s museum taught me how to handle challenging situations in little time. It taught me that children are major contributors to society. The knowledge that they learned at the museum will stick with them forever. Continually, I am involved in my school’s SGA. SGA stands for Student Government Association. The main purpose of SGA is to plan school extracurricular activities, and improve the school and the community. Some of the ways in which SGA has improved the community include food drives, working for Habitat for Humanity, participating in Relay for Life, and more. Being apart of SGA has taught me to a humanitarian. There are so many needs out there in the community. When you take the time to do something special for the community you will get a sense of fulfillment knowing that you have contributed to a greater cause. My advice to any one wanting to do a cause for the greater good is to do something you love. For example, if you are interested in the health professions, volunteer at your local hospital. If you are academically proficient, find out places where you can tutor students. If you have a knack for architecture and home making volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. If you are passionate about homeless people, volunteer at the local homeless shelter or soup kitchen. There are a plethora of ways in which you can be help your community. Also, don’t just stop at your local community. Your impact can be global. There are so many teenagers out there who are stepping out of their comfort zones and making worldwide contributions to society. If you are creative and determined you can start your own non-profit. There was a teenager girl that was featured in Seventeen Magazine for starting a business that distributed pads and other feminine products to homeless women. Another girl featured on Seventeen started a business to raise awareness and money for endangered animals. These girls were passionate about something and acted upon it. All you need is determination and idea to make a difference in this world. Another way that you can change the world is to start with your friends. If your friends are going through a difficult time, do something that you know will make their day. You can bake a batch of their favorite cookies. You can write them a homemade letter or card. Good deeds can start with the people you love the most. Studies have shown that being kind to others improves your sense of fulfillment in life. Who doesn’t want that? This blog post will definitely encourage me to do something positive for the world. I will be brainstorming more ways to help the community and will possibly be writing about my experiences. I hope this has inspired you to do more good deeds. If you want more ideas on making your mark on the world, feel free to comment. Lets make the world a better place. That’s all I have for today.
Stay fabulous,

Black and Proud

In honor of black history month I wanted to do something different. For those of you who don’t know I am Nigerian American. Thus, I am a black woman. I want to talk about what it means to be a black woman. Being a black woman in this society can sometimes be quite difficult. Though as a nation we are far from the days of segregation and high racial intensity. Nonetheless, racism still exists in this country. The racial discrepancies of this nation are just much more subdued. For example, I live in the south and the racial tension that I have experienced is quite evident. I have been accused of theft at a local Walgreens. Teachers have asked me why can’t my name “Abisola”, can’t be more normal. (It is a traditional Nigerian name) I have been asked and talked negatively about for my natural hair texture. (I have been “natural” for a couple of years now) There are so many more little scenarios that I have experienced in which bring about racial slurs. Being black can be challenging in a society that emphasizes eurocentric style of living. However, I am black and proud. There are so many accomplishments that black people have won over the years. Our very president is a black man. That was a major feat for us as a nation. I will definitely miss president Obama after this year’s election. Apart from the current day black people have contributed so many things to this nation historically. So many inventions that we use today are made from black individuals. Continually black people have established so many things when it comes to pop culture. Despite this, black people are still underestimated. In the Oscars this year there is literally little to none representation of black people. It is quite sad. Black Hollywood is so limited. In fact, the roles for black people continually are reserved for “the best friend role” or “the sassy coworker”. When will we get to the point in society where there is more diversity and prestige for black individuals in the film industry? For me, being black is reflected through a combination of my Nigerian culture and American culture. I am literally African American. My Nigerian culture is represented in the food that I eat. It is reflected in my language. (I speak a Nigerian dialect called Yoruba) It is also displayed in my mannerisms and view of my life. My culture is so important to me. That is why I am so against the appropriation of black culture. This seems to be a trend nowadays. This trend is sickening. Women are getting lip and butt injections. “Black hairstyles” are being replicated amongst people of other races. “Black culture” in itself is being infiltrated, changed, and mocked. Even twerking which is traditional amongst many African cultural dances, has been exploited. I don’t mind the flattery, but the mass exploitation is just not something that can fly. Its important for black people to embrace who they are. Colorism is still an issue prevalent today. As mentioned before we live in a eurocentric world. This means that the standards of beauty are often based on European principles. For black people, especially women this translates to light skinned blacks being more appealing than dark skinned blacks in society. Even amongst other black people this is quite prominent. Certain black men say that they only favor light skinned girls. Light skinned girls are often the only black representation in media. As a dark skinned woman, I know that despite these tendencies that I should love my black. People like Lupita Nyongo have definitely paved the way for the dark skinned woman in media. Every shade of black is beautiful. The last thing that I will discuss is the prevalence of racial prejudice crime. From Travon Martin, to Mike Brown, to Tamir Rice, it seems like race related crimes is the new trend. Its pretty scary to think that I might have a black son one day that is judged for being black. While there are protests against these hate crimes, all we can really do is hope. All we can do is hope and pray that a change will come. Its also important to educate others on racism and black culture in general. When people become more open and are not ignorant to black culture, they will respect it and there will be less hate crimes. Well that’s all that I have for today. Thanks for reading.

Coming of Age

As my 18th birthday approaches on February 27th, I can’t help but think about what it means for me to be an adult. In many cultures, women tend to have a rite of passage into adulthood. For me personally, I have felt as though I am getting older but I’m still treated like a child. This is due to the fact that in Nigerian society 18 year olds are still seen as children. In fact, basically until you are married and probably until you have your own children you are still viewed by your parents as a child. As I’ve began to think about what it means to be an adult particularly a grrrowwwn woman (Beyonce voice) I can’t help but think about the women in my life who have inspired me. The women who have inspired me the most has to be my immediate family. These individuals are my mom and my sister. My mother is one of the strongest and wisest women I have known. She single-handedly raised my sister and I. She exudes elegance wherever she goes. She has taught me so many life lessons. She has taught me the value of education. She instilled in me the sense of independence. I’ve learned not to rely on a man for anything. This includes financial and emotional sustenance. She taught me that as a woman you need to have your own thing going on. You should be able to fend for yourself. My mother taught me the significance of a relationship with God. She encourages me to spend time reading my word and being in the presence of God. She has also taught me that as a woman it takes more than beauty to succeed. Nonetheless, she has taught me that as a woman you should take pride in your appearance. Although her personal style is a little too conservative for me, I have learned the value of dressing sophisticated and classy. Every time I pick an outfit I always have to think will my mom approve. Its become instinctive. Another person who has taught me about womanhood is my sister. Let me just take a moment to brag about my sister. She is a gorgeous, intelligent, young woman. She is currently in medical school. Yep my big sissy is going to be a doctor. We are six years apart in age. However, we are extremely close. My sister is still in her early 20s but has grown so much as a woman. She has taught me lessons on things such as romantic relationships. Since I have not ever been in a serious romantic relationship, I vicariously get my experience from her. Apart from relationships she has taught me to live life for yourself. She taught me about friendship and how friends come and go in your life. Currently, she has taught me about sacrifice especially academic sacrifice. I see how hard she works academically. She is constantly studying (I mean its medical school). Her work ethic encourages me to be more academically driven. Our age gap has never deterred us from building a strong relationship. In fact, I account our age difference as one of the essential reasons as to why I am so mature. Surrounding myself with people her age caused me to grow up fast. Not necessarily in a bad way, but I just learned life lessons faster than others. As my birthday approaches I will try to strive to be a better woman. I want to embody the essence of Maya Angelou’s poem “Phenomenal Woman”. Its also exciting to have new found social responsibility. I will finally get to vote in the 2016 election. I am also going to go off to college this year. This independence is exciting but a little nerve-wrecking. I will have to leave the childish things behind. Despite this, I think its important to keep a little bit of the child-like excitement with you. To live life with a child’s heart is the essential key of being a happy and fulfilled adult. Womanhood is an exciting journey for me. I can’t wait. The next time I right I will be legal! Yay! Thanks for reading.

Have a wonderful day,
Abisola

Dealing With Disappointment

From an early age we learn that we can’t get everything you want. Children are taught that some things in life just don’t go as we plan. Learning to deal with disappointment is apart of personal growth. It is one of the paths that lead to maturity. It takes a very mature person to come to terms with their disappointments. Disappointment occurs so often. Whether its getting a bad grade or being gilted by your boyfriend, its part of the process of life. As I’ve mentioned previously, I am a high school senior. That means college prep. With this in mind, I have to prepare myself for the absolute worst. I have to get in the state of mind that whatever happens, happens. One of the major points in dealing with disappointment is excepting the unchangeable. Excepting the unchangeable is simply realizing that what has happened is probably for the best. Its very difficult initially. However, it all becomes better emotionally when you realize that what is meant to be will happen. Whats not meant to be will not happen. In regards to my college application I am grateful for the colleges that I have been accepted in to. Nonetheless, I will try not to be upset about the colleges that I don’t get accepted into. Its so much easier said than done. I am a firm believer in the fact that everybody and everything happens for a reason. I believe that every individual has a destiny for their lives. I also believe that if you are a good person nothing can change your destiny. You will always get to the point that you need to go. Disappointments are the stumbling blocks in the midst of your journey. It derails you temporarily from reaching your goal. Despite this minor pitfall, you can still recover and become successful. You are in charge of your own life and destiny. Disappointments are just tests along the way. Continually, there are some disappointments that you handle differently. These are the emotional disappointments. A lot of people have been in situations in which they have experienced unrequited love. Basically in a nutshell that means that the person they love or admire does not love them back. That is one major disappointment. You often feel hurt that what you have to offer as a person is not what your lover wants. Its a feeling of incompetence that gets you. So how do you deal with an emotional disappointment. First things first, you need to talk it out. Communicating with others about how you feel is extremely helpful. You don’t need to tell loads of people. Talk to someone who is your confidant like a close friend or family member. Releasing your emotion is critical to healing. The next step in dealing with disappointment is to come to terms with whatever happened. If you got dumped by your boyfriend or your dealing with a case of unrequited love, you have to acknowledge your sadness. Pushing your emotions to the side is never helpful only detrimental. Its important to take some time to be sad. Most people think that pretending not to be effected by their negative emotions is helpful. Absolutely wrong. In fact, it is quite healthy to take some time to even cry or be in a short period of emotional heartache. After you have acknowledged your disappointment the next step is to seek spiritual clarity. How can spirituality help you out. Well, to begin with when you have become in tune with something greater than yourself your problems become quite minute. Spirituality can take the form of prayer, yoga, journaling, anything to become more in tune with a higher purpose. For me, talking to God always makes me feel better. As I’ve discussed before, I believe that God has destined a superior plan for our lives. One disappointment will not change that. When one door closes, another door opens. The disappointment may just be God’s way of setting you up for something better. Don’t stop believing in yourself. That’s all that I have for today. Thanks for reading.

I Miss You

We’ve all felt it. That sense of longing for someone or something. The fact of the matter is that someone or something is unattainable. That is the hardest aspect to grasp. When you want something but know deep down in your heart that you are unable to get it. I have dealt with the idea of missing someone/something for a long time. In the past year, I changed high schools. It was a major transition for me. I had already established myself at the high school that I attended. I was in clubs and organizations. I had my own friends. But after going through some turbulent times, I knew I had to alter my environment. Now I don’t regret my decision at all. However, I still miss my school very much. I miss my friends that I don’t see very often. Its very difficult considering the fact that I have not made very many friends at the school that I currently attend. But I know that I have to move on. Its the process of life. Besides, as a senior in high school I will be experiencing a completely new atmosphere in just a few short months. I know that I will definitely make friends there. Missing friends is hard but missing family is harder.I say this with complete sincerity because I am experiencing that currently. My sister is in medical school right now. I am extremely proud of her. Nonetheless, the medical school that she attends is in the Caribbean. Now when she was in college I only saw her a couple times a year. Despite this, I knew that I could see her in just a two and a half hour drive. Currently, with her location it would take me hours on a plane to see her.This is considerably hard because we are very close. Our bond is strong, thus it contains the strength to survive different countries. So what do you do when you miss someone? Well,crying and whining all day is not going to help. For starters, if you are still in a healthy relationship with them make sure that you stay in touch. Whether you’ve moved away or there is just some distance between the two of you make sure that you are communicating with them. Make phone calls, video chats, or even an old-fashioned email a core part of your correspondence. To continue, when you miss someone especially someone that you are no longer in relations with, it is extremely healthy to move on. Make other friends. Its important that you do not linger on with something that is unmendable. Friends come and go. Having other people surrounding you will take the longing off of the person that you miss. Thirdly, when you miss someone try to make an effort to overt your attention on them. Like I said, making new friends is helpful but also doing things that preoccupy your mind is even better. This is especially true for people who have just gotten out of a relationship. Instead of moaning and moping around find something productive to do. Get a hobby. Volunteer. Do whatever it is that you need to do to put your mind on something constructive. Lastly, if you miss someone so bad and you are still on good terms with them, make time to see them. I do this very often. If I haven’t seen a friend in a long time I make plans to go and hang out with them. Its very important to affirm your relationship with that individual. Well thats all I have for today. I know its hard missing someone but the truth is, it gets better with time. Thanks for reading. Have a lovely day.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

We’ve all been there. Worry has had us in a state of unbearable anxiety. Whether its worrying about your future, your school, career, being anxious is apart of life. I have recently been in a state of anxiety. For those of you who don’t know I am a senior in high school. Thus, I have been applying for colleges. Waiting for the results of the colleges has given me quite a stir. I could not help but have a little bit of panic as to whether or not I would get in. However, in retrospect, I realize that worrying about my college acceptance will not change the results. I learned that its better to be calm about things than to hype yourself up about things you

Amor

What is the definition of love? Can you really define something so powerful. The dictionary definition of love is an intense feeling of deep affection. It is also described as the object of attachment,devotion, or admiration. Love is something that is so universal. I would describe it as an emotion that transcends every cultural barrier. It is one of the most discussed topics. If you listen to the radio, the majority of the songs will be about love. Why is love so important? Love builds relationships. It is center of healthy and wholesome interactions. It paves the way for growth in a relationship. There are different kinds of love. There is the romantic love, platonic love, and family-based love. Each concept of love shares the same basic tenets. There is a sense of strong appreciation and admiration for an individual. I have never been in a serious romantic relationship before. Thus, I have never experienced the idea of being “in love”. However, based on my religious beliefs I know the characteristics in which I will look for when I find someone that I fall in love with. These include patience, kindness, selflessness, and humility. This recipe for love can be found in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. It describes all the qualities that love attains. As a Christian, my belief is that God is love. How is he love? He is love, because he is a God of compassion, and exemplifies all the qualities of love that are listed in Corinthians. According to my beliefs, he showed the greatest act of love when he died for our salvation on the cross. He was sent to this earth out of love. john 3:16 said. “God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that who so ever believes in him will not perish but have ever lasting life. ” To me that is the epitome of love. Although I have not officially been in any romantic relationships, I seem to have been blessed with the wisdom to decipher and counsel others in relationships. A lot of my friends and family come to me for advice on relationships. My wisdom comes from God, and fully assessing the situation. I try to be as objective as possible. I wanted to do this post as we get closer to Valentines Day. Valentines Day is one of the holidays that I have never really celebrated (due to my singleness). However, although it is so tactfully promoted as the “Day of Love”, I believe that you should celebrate those who you love every day not just on Valentines Day. Although Valentines Day is the occasion to celebrate your loved ones, you should always make an effort to do something special for them every once in a while. Ladies (and gentleman(, If you are single don’t worry about spending Valentines Day alone. It is perfectly ok. I would try to spend the day with other single friends or just have a Me-time day and go solo. It is nothing to be ashamed about. In fact, sometimes being single is one of the greatest gifts that you can give yourself. It is better being single than being in a relationship that doesn’t cause you to grow. I have mentioned this before, but don’t get into a relationship out of loneliness. Get into a relationship when you are emotionally prepared for the outcome. Also for my younger viewers please do not get involved in the dating game too early. Enjoy your childhood. Relationships in middle and even in high school rarely last. Its important for you to find yourself before you tie yourself into a relationship. I always say that you can’t give someone else love unless you love yourself. Being single gives you the opportunity for you to build yourself up. It will give you time to offer someone more of yourself and to find someone with higher standards. Don’t despise the days of young beginnings. I believe that there is a person out there for everyone. You just have to wait for the right time. Well that’s all that I have for today. Go out and love yourself.

Lets Get Spiritual

Before I begin this blog post, I would like to make a disclaimer. To begin with, I am not trying to convince any one to be affiliated with a particular religious group. I am not a missionary, and am solely going to discuss spirituality on a general basis. What is spirituality? Spirituality is the sense or presence of something bigger than ourselves. It can be the practicing of a particular religion or simply embracing a different, unique aspect of your life. It is making deeper, more profound connections to something in life. I would consider myself a very open minded individual. With this being known, I have seen a plethora of people and have befriended people of different religions. I have been aware of the numerous similarities and differences with these religions. Some of these include Hinduism, Buddhism, Agnostic, and more. In a general sense following a religious path often gives people a sense of identity. Personally, as a Christian, my religion gives me balance. My identity comes from knowing that I am a child of God. As a child of God, I am held to a certain standard. I must abide to Christian morals. My religion is based on faith in a God, you can not see. For some people, that may seem impractical. However, for me believing in Christ is simple. I am fortunate enough to have deep profound spiritual experiences. One of the most defining moments for me that in which I truly had a spiritual encounter was when I was in the 7th grade. My church took a trip to a church summer camp program called The Ramp. It was basically a time of praise, worship, and little preaching. On the day that I came back, I had an experience called speaking in tongues. For those of you who do not know what speaking in tongues is, it is a Christian experience in which you are speaking the language of God. It is an uncomprehendable language and utterance that occurs when you have a profound spiritual experience. I was speaking in tongues all the way from the trip to Alabama, all the way back home. I literally could not control my tongue. I kept on speaking and speaking. I felt like I was basking in the presence of God. It felt amazing but it was also quite annoying. I wanted to stop but I could not control myself. Some doctrines of Christianity do not believe in speaking in tongues. Whatever you believe, I assure you that when you make an effort to gain a sense of spirituality in your life, you will feel better. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, in the beginning of January, I completed the Daniel Fast. That was a 21 day vegan diet, with no sugar, salt, or white starches. That was a very trying period for me. It taught me self-discipline. It definitely aided in my spiritual walk. Correspondingly, my goal this year is to read the entire bible in the course of a year. I am proud to say I am in the 5th book of the bible, Deuteronomy. This year has been the most amount of time that I have kept on track with reading the bible.
Why is it important to be spiritual? It gives you guidance. For me, knowing that God is there for me in every situation,takes off a lot of pressure. It also gives me peace knowing that I am not alone. Spirituality gives you a sense of purpose. If you don’t believe in anything higher than yourself, your greatest expectations will be yourself. Believing in something higher than yourself, gives you clarity and an accountability. You know that whatever the situation is, there is something divine trying to guide you out. One of the things that gives me peace about being is a Christian is that, if I die and there is no God, I know that I lived a morally conscious life as a good citizen. Thats one of the the things that gives me assurance. Well thats all that I have for today. If you want to learn more about spirituality, please make sure to comment.

Can We Get It Together

In life we all have stress factors. Whether its your academics, career, or spouses, there’s always something in life that gives you a hassle. As a society we tend to always want a way to be “put together”. We want to appear to have an air of perfection. We strive to achieve this perfect image of who we ought to be. This image is often a construct of perfection that is almost impossible to achieve. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, the only standard that you should follow, should be your own. Strive to be the best you can be not what others can be. It’s often difficult as individuals to grasp this concept. What makes it worse is the pressure our society puts on people. We are bombarded with visuals of lavish lifestyles, and beautiful models. These images often make us feel inferior. The point of the matter is no one is perfect. Perfection is just a facade. We will never look like the person in the magazine. Heck, the person in the magazine does not even really look like the person in the magazine. Advertisers use photoshop and other imaging techniques to achieve an un-human like appearance. Apart from the looks what you see on the television shows don’t always add up. The lavish lifestyles of those on reality shows are often exaggerated. Not everyone can live the life of a Kardashian.
Being put together is not always the answer. The question is how do you get your life to be acceptable and manageable. Well, I have a couple of tips.

To begin with, when trying to get your life together, the first step is organization. You have to think about the significant things in your life. You have to prioritize. If you are a student, one of the most important things in life is your academics. That means you must be on top of all your classes. How do you stay on top of your classes? Create a game plan of how much time you are going to dedicate to each class. For example, say you have a Chemistry class with assignments each week. Plan out how long these assignments take and allocate a little bit of time every day each week. Let’s say the assignment is a lab due each week. You could dedicate 30 minutes each day into working on the lab. It’s all about planning. If you have a career, organize time to work on job-related activities and balance a social life. This will prevent you from only thinking about your career.

Furthermore, another tip for getting your life together is to stay focused. What should you focus on you say? I would recommend creating a to-do list every day. With this to-do list make goals that you want to accomplish every day. In order to accomplish these goals prevent distractions. That’s right, I’m sorry you might not be able to binge watch Netflix. Once you eliminate distractions, your life will be made easier. Do not procrastinate!For more tips on procrastination read my blog post “I’ll Do It Later”. Accomplishing little goals every day will help you get your life together. It gives you a sense of clarity andIt takes time but it will definitely be worth it.

Lastly, when trying to get your life together, I recommend finding a higher purpose. Finding a higher purpose and finding solace in religion can be very useful when trying to get your act together. Personally, as a Christian, I find it helpful when my life gets out of control, to pray. Prayer for me allows me to talk to God about my problems. When I pray I have peace that something is going to work out for my good. It takes off the pressures of life. You may not be a religious person, and that’s perfectly fine. However, when you tune in to something higher than yourself, it allows you to feel comforted. You realize that you are not in control of everything in your life. It brings about a sense of peace. Well, that’s all I have for today.

Are You Satisfied?

Every day is a new opportunity to do something with your life. The saying life is short is something completely true. You are not promised tomorrow, thus you have to make the most of every day that you have. Carpe diem. Seize the day. As you grow older, its often difficult to look back on all the old memories. Maybe you feel like you’ve lost the time. Maybe you feel like your greatest moments were in the past. Maybe you feel like you just don’t feel fulfilled. Fulfillment is definitely something that you want to have when it comes to life. I mean there is always that age old question lingering about “What is the meaning of life?” The famous song from Rent “Seasons of Love”, tries to sum it up. “How do you measure a year in a life?”. The answer for the question in rent is to measure life in love. Love is something that is obviously not tangible but is so important in finding fulfillment in life. Now I’m not specifically talking about romantic love. I believe the song in Rent was talking about love of life. When you have a zest for life, you are bound to be fulfilled. It’s quite simple. When you cherish and admire every aspect of life, your over all contentment, will be accomplished. Learning to love life, is not always easy. It starts by appreciating the little things. There is always something to be grateful for in life. The mere fact that you have life is a miracle. I’ve mentioned this in other blog posts but when you write a list of all the things you are grateful for, you get a physical representation of your blessings. This representation will help you become more content. Learning to love life, comes with learning to love other people. Yes, there will always be those annoying people in your life that always seem to get on your nerves. However, once you learn how to ignore the irritable people and enjoy the people that are dear to you, you will definitely get more out of life. When it comes to loving people in the romantic sense, many people make the mistake of putting their lovers as the center and sole source of fulfillment. DO NOT DO THIS! I can’t stress it enough how unhealthy that is. Your partner should not be your main source of happiness. Before you get into a relationship, you should be your own source of happiness. This also applies to friendships. Don’t allow others to make you feel happy.
One way to be fulfilled is by being productive. If you are productive, you will get more out of life. I would recommend reading my procrastination post called “I’ll Do It Later”. It tells you how to be more productive and prevent procrastination, which is the enemy of progress. Make every day count for something. Continually, another way to be more content in life is to do something you love every day. Whether its going out to your favorite restaurant, or watching your favorite tv show after a long day of work, taking some time for you will always allow you to feel content and happy. Lastly, one of the other ways to be more fulfilled in life is to spend more time with your loved ones. When you take the time to spend time with your loved ones, you are creating timeless memories and bonds. These bonds will allow you to live the life that you truly want. Well that’s all that I have for today. Thanks for reading.
Sincerely,
Abisola
