Confession Of A Female Teenager Part 2

I Still decide to call it LOVE, like the rest of my peers do. I chat with him for long hours and have a smile plastered to my face all through. I laugh out loud in between, and blush sometimes as well. These adults think I have a problem, but hey! the case is the same with many other teenagers like me. This is a proof that I am perfectly fine. In fact, any teenager that doesn't feel this way has a problem. Yes! a problem.
       Whenever I see him, I feel butterflies in my tummy. I really can't explain it. All I know is I just want to hold his hands, hug him tight, look into his eyes, hear him call my name, tell me sweet things and just be around him. Every time I get the chance to do these things, my heart gets to beat twice faster than normal, my legs become shaky, my palms sweaty and blushing comes so easy... Its a cool feeling, I must admit. Many nights, after a pleasurable day with him, all I do is lay down on my bed and smile at sweet memories. So much joy feels my heart. My friends admit to the same too. In fact, some of them have taken it up the notch by going into Kissing and  Caressing. They even say a better feeling is derived from these than mere holding of hands and hugging. Well, I couldn't have agreed to that, until I tried it too! And really! Its just the very best feeling you could ever have!
     Now I wonder why almost evey adult speak against these things. They give pleasure to us and make us happy. Without these things, expression of how we feel is almost impossible. They call it SATISFACTION OF FLESHY DESIRES. We call it EXPRESSION OF LOVE. The same way our parents will not understand, these Pastors and Seminarians too will not.
       Just when I decided to extend my newly found joy to the members of my family, they began to wonder what the source of my sudden joy and happiness was. It was just then the frustrations became more. They blamed my every mistake on my addiction to my phone so they seized it more often. They restricted my outings and did all sorts. Come to think of it, it wasn't really my phone I was addicted to, but the person that makes me use the phone- My Love. Now, my phone has been seized, and I can't reach him. One whole month! Isn't that just too cruel of my parents??? I think its just obvious now! They don't want me happy. Period!
      I miss him daily. My heart is with him. They say the feeling will pass, I say this feeling will never go away. I say I will love him forever. No matter what I will still love him. I'm sure he'll be missing me too. I'll get my phone back in a month and I'll reach out to my Love and tell him how much I miss him. I'm counting down to that beautiful day.
NB.. Part3 will reach you all by tomorrow. Thanks for reading through.

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…

Personal Growth 101

The first time many of us heard the word 'growth' was most likely in basic school where it was described as one of the characteristics of living things. Thereafter, it seemed the word almost disappeared from our vocabularies. 
What is growth anyway? Growth is simply the process you go through to become your true and best self. It is the season between birth and fulfilment. This short piece, of course, can't explain everything about growth but it'll suffice to give you a head-start and set you on the never-ending  journey of personal growth. 
First, we need to understand that life is really all about growth. A man once said "Development of character is the main business of life". How true! The essence of our existence is that we keep growing into our true and best selves.  
It is also important that we realize that growth is intentional. Wee don't grow by simply living, by accident or chance. Growth is intentional. Some erroneously believe we grow automat…

Sharpen your Axe: How Personal Development Can Simplify Your Life

"If I had six hour to chop down a tree, I'd spend the first four hours sharpening the axe." - Abraham Lincoln
An axe is a cutting tool that consists of a heavy edged head fixed to a handle with with the edge parallel to the handle that is used especially for felling trees and chopping wood (Merriam Webster Dictionary). The axe is considered one of the most effective traditional tools for cutting trees. To effectively carry out this duty for which it is made, the edge of the axe must be well sharpened so it could cut through the wood with ease. 
In this context, your axe is the potential, gifts, talents and resources available to you as an individual. Your axe is the tool available to you to solve any problem. This could be your degrees, talents, inherent potential, knowledge or any other thing at your disposal. 
"If the ax is dull,  And one does not sharpen the edge, Then he must use more strength;  But wisdom brings success" - Ecclesiastes 10:10 An axe, when it…
