Dear Readers,

Here’s the conclusion of the last post. If you have not read it, you can do so here.

Emotional attraction can be subtle or sudden, one minute you are just friends, the next minute you have taken the quantum leap of love. Her smile, his laugh, how she holds your hands, those words of encouragement…the little things that add up slowly and create loving feelings. The slow yet steady buildup of an emotional attraction, the feeling that you can give your all for him or her. Read more

Most women do not stay in abusive relationships because they like being abused. It is, also, not true that only weak, helpless women are caught up in abusive relationships.  Many of the women who are involved in abusive relationships are strong, capable women, but over time have been weakened by domestic abuse. There are several reasons why a physically abused person will choose to remain in their relationships/marriage; Read more

V

“If war is holy and sex is obscene;
Then we’ve got it twisted in this lucid dream;
Baptized in boundaries, schooled in sin;
Divided by different, sexuality and skin.
I cannot but hear this song;
In the voices of our old and young;
For our thoughts are rubbed in muds;
And our hopes, our leaders chew like cods;
Still we hope and pray in darkness;
While like goats we refuse change’s brightness;
As our leaders fashion religion as weapons;
And brothers bash each other with tribal batons.
Till our elders work for all,
Till churches mount schools for poor,
Till we sanctify our thoughts and set conscience right.
I fear all we built with our black gold will crash before our sight!”

Sex, Celibacy, and Abstinence

do-not-enter-signGrowing up, the word ‘sex’ was treated like Lord Voldemort (not to be named). Most parents did not educate their children about it. It was more or less an abomination to speak the word.

Young children were being molested (mostly by family, friends and family friends) but because it is an ‘abomination’ to speak the word, most were not educated enough to know what was happening to them. Even those who knew what was happening to them were afraid to speak up as there was a higher chance that they would be flogged for speaking up or asked questions like, “Are you sure?”, “How do you know?” or even “What do you know?” As they say, “Ki l’omode mo?” (Meaning: What does a child know?).

Doors!

Open doors - welcome, choice, opportunity concept

A door grants access to a person or thing. It is a simple mechanism that allows a person enter or exit a place, a situation, a mindset or in fact run for their lives (fire doors). A door can also be a restriction or prevent access to a place, a building or even a vehicle. Doors can be left fully or partially open or closed.

Why Do I Want to Get Married?

Marriage
We live in an era where marriage is glorified (or is it wedding?). Marriage is a great institution and can only be survived when entered into for all the right reasons.

As a family member would say “Marriage is the only institution where you receive your certificate on admission.”

Marriage is not the 1-day or 2-day event where we wear our best clothes and make up, dance and look all shades of awesome. That is the wedding. The marriage starts right after the party. Read more

Customer Service and Satisfaction

 

Hello Readers,

Hope you are having a great week. Today’s post is about customer service and customer satisfaction.

What is Customer Service?

According to Wikipedia, customer service is the provision of service to customers before, during and after a purchase.

Servicing a customer is an integral part of every purchase or transaction which involves interacting with a customer either internally or externally. It can usually last from a few seconds up to a couple of hours. So, if we all practice and experience it daily in almost everything we do, then why isn’t good customer service the norm? Read more

Applying Etiquette In Our Daily Lives

 

etiquette

Etiquette, is a French word which, is a code of polite conduct that describes expectations for acceptable behavior within a society, social class, or group.

Basically, I think Etiquette means “doing unto others as you would have them do to you.” This also means respect/regard for the next person. Etiquette is not just about how to cross your legs, or how to speak English. It refers to how you treat others. . You don’t have to know someone to be respectful and nice. Being respectful does not cost you anything. On the contrary, it may help you or your children, even grand and great grand children in the future.
