On Meditation

“Meditation is an art that helps us function in all aspects of our mundane and spiritual life. We have to make out time to sit still. ”
-Dunni Oni, on Meditation.


I’ve always said meditation is therapeutic. It’s why I practice it daily.
If you get anxious a lot like me. Try meditating.

Stay put, clear you mind of all things then slowly soak in the silence. After that, pick each thing that buzzed around for attention. Analyse with kindness and rationality also.

Breathe in and out while sited in silence soaking in yourself. Always end your meditation with self affirmation(eg.I am deserving of my love) or prayers.

Reading Update

‘If a way to the Better there be, it exacts a full look at the Worst.’-Thomas Hardy.

From Die of Shame by Mark Billingham

Starting a new book always makes me feel giddy and anxious at the same time. Just like starting a new phase in life. Next week Externship begins and I’ll be leaving Lagos for Abuja. I’m grateful for the two weeks I’ve spent in my yellow home city.

I’ve finished reading The Origin of Butterflies. I’ll be sharing my favorite lines, pictures and thoughts on the blog soon.

I hope you’ve been enjoying your week.

Intimacy and Fabstinence

I’m currently a swirl of emotions. I’m proud of how I’ve consistently cared for Lotus (kegel, drinking more water, not washing her with soap, eating pineapples apples,watermelon) and abstained from sex. I feel and smell the difference from all the vaginal care.

I won’t lie, channelling my sexual energy into studying, creativity and blogging has been elevating! Yet for someone who has anticipated ending her sex fast I’m currently uninterested in sex.

“People think intimacy is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realise you can tell someone your truth, when you show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them bare and their response is ‘You’re safe with me’–that is intimacy.”

-The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

I crave intimacy; romantic and platonic intimacy. I think that’s why I’m most excited for the holidays. I get to spend time talking, cuddling, staring,musing about life, laughing, enjoying silence, kissing, listening to curated playlists… If my sex interest returns, fine. Although, I hope being intimate with loved ones will help me write erotica.

To friends who we agreed to be Fabulous and Abstain together. Kiss you in Lagos!
