My redemption story

Storytime – THE DAY MY LIFE WAS MADE BEAUTIFUL Ever heard the saying “Your story is the key that can unlock someone else’s prison. Share it.” This was supposed to be the best title to get you to come and read what i had to say, but by the time i was done writing, I realized this was more of an affirmation than a disclosure story. I choose to share it still, because who knows what prisons will be unlocked.

Newly weds, especially if you are not planning to have babies anytime soon, can get a way with many things, but with new responsibilities or like when the babies start coming, then parenting; some disruptive lifestyle changes become non negotiable. This is because, your happiness and sanity will rely on your approach to these occurences. So, in plain terms, this is not about giving up your last name, or your private space, bank account details, your job orRead More →
