Invest more in your brain than your weave dear sister!

In attempt to keep those who's attention span is less than that of a five year old, I will get the core of why I think it is particularly a good idea to invest in your brain than the weave that covers the scalp within which the brain is contained.

The women that have invested in their brains by getting educated can afford expensive weaves. I mean the higher you go with your level of education , the more your earning potential.

Couple your weave with a book to read,  see while you are getting it done you could improve your vocabulary and become a more interesting person just by reading a book.  Reading among other things , expands your  frame of reference , improves your vocabulary and sentence construction and these benefits will stay with you far longer than the weave will last.

Newspapers are also not that bad I promise , they will save you the embarrassment of looking all so beautiful and not knowing who the deputy president of the country you live is....

Dear sisters and divas we need to have a balanced diet to feed both our appearance and our brain capacity. Give both your body and your brain and your body a good workout for maximum impact.

Lets make beauty with brains the in thing. Be a woman of substance!

The sound of one hand clapping

Nothing irritates me like someone who can never see any good in anyone or anything. Such a person sucks the joy out of life and I have never seen someone like that make a meaningful progress in their life. The one thing that he/she does best is criticize other people and get a kick out of putting other people down.

There are a few people that still know how to give  a genuine complement where its due and even less people who offer encouragement to a person in need of it.

The kind of complements if at all that one hears often are lines like ' well done but you could have done better if...', ' you look great but ...' , nothing good ever follows those lines and it sure is not constructive criticism that follows.

It is in effect the sound of one hand clapping as opposed to a round of applause. Haters don't get too far in life, if you have nothing good to say , please shut up!

Not all who wonder are lost

Very few thing are straight forward in life.  The road which lead to the career path that I have chosen was a very long and winding one. I started out wanting to become an Occupational Therapist , I was very much in touch with my humanitarian side at that time and thought that would be the best way in which I can make a difference in the community that I grew up in.

My second choice was to be a journalist because writing had always been my passion. To cut a long story short , I studied journalism for a year and a half  , I didn't complete the course, then I went for beauty therapy, that too I did not complete and lastly I found my home in Public Relations management.

This is the challenge that being a jack of all trades presented me with, since I have a lot of talents and interest, till I found a career that incorporates not all but most of my passions, business being one of them. To many I seemed to be lost , because I couldn't name exactly what career path I wanted to follow at that point. The one thing that I have always been sure of is that I am going to make a success of my life and I am going to graduate no matter what.

It may have taken me a long time to figure it all out but now that I have, I am ready to take on the world.
