Riding the wave of Purpose

I watched with interest this morning as Kim Kardashian a reality star was invited to the American white house to speak on her initiatives with prison reform and her new collaboration with Lyft to give reformed ex prisoners rides to job interviews and see family member, and I thought to myself wow, what were the odds that several years ago a young lady whose claim to fame was through a sex tape and a more or less vapid reality tv show would be so impactful in the lives of others.
Her speech might not have been the most intellectually stimulating compared to the thousands we have heard from that podium, but the strength to her purpose was evident, she was not bothered about the lefts intolerance for the President, or the damage their continuous partnership could do to her brand, she stood determined, and excited as she spoke on the work they had done and the work they were planning to do for these Prisoners. After years of countless criticism by millions of people accusing her of offe…



I glance at my wristwatch, bite my lips when i realize its 8.00 p.m
Shudders run through my body , anger rises from my insides.
i cant believe the Sun has set, this was not the plan.
in the am i had been armed with my to do list
Now look at me, upset aggrieved

Today was not supposed to end like this
i had so many things on my to do list
but you tricked me

Dakkylove Launches Clothing Line "Dakkydivacollection"

Hi folks, its almost embarrassing to keep apologizing for not blogging for a while but trust me i have good reasons.

I was inspired to start a clothing line, and typical me i didn't just start a less arduous line with possibly just ladies dresses i decided to go the whole nine yards and start a unisex clothing line, producing men and female ready to wear outfits and female accessories, which includes Shoes, Sandals, Slippers, Hand Bags and purses of different varieties and designs.

Oh and i insisted in using only made in Nigeria manufacturers and majorly Nigerian materials
Phew it's tough, really....really tough.

What Happens when you Outgrow your Shell?

Growth sighs…it’s a very complicated word this one, everyone feels a buzz of pride when people compliment you on your growth, you get this deep sense of accomplishment, and why not if a third eye can see that there is some improvement in your life what’s not to like.
The process of growth though that’s another matter, sometimes the process can be scary, tumultuous and difficult but the end result is always worth it.

Having a "work wife" or "work husband" is good for your career

We haven’t worked together for almost a decade, but Christina was my first – and best – work wife. She picked me up when I fell backwards off the stage at the office Christmas party, and let me crash on her sofa the following year when I lost all my possessions and couldn’t get into my flat. We’ve travelled from Caracas to Kiev together and still go on holiday when we can, children and partners allowing. When she got married I was her bridesmaid.
But the defining moment when I realised she was my work wife happened eight years ago when I was made redundant from the company we worked at together. It was my first job, and I’d been there almost four years. I kind of knew it was time to leave, and it wasn’t the biggest shock in the world but, still, no one really expects that conversation on a Monday afternoon. I wouldn’t have bought all my lunches for the week from the supermarket next door an hour earlier if I had. After being told I was probably losing my job, I went straight to the pub …
