The Week's Message: Humility Is A Virtue We Must All Possess!!!

I never understood what the big deal with humility was until it started to define certain moments in my life. As a child, I grew up in an environment where social and class stratification were present, and I accepted it as a norm of life that certain people did not relate with certain other people in society.

And as a child, I longed to be part of the higher class individuals that people fell over themselves to speak to; the high class individuals who had their noses stuck in the air everytime and only managed to respond to the greetings of those beneath them with a tiny wave of the hand.

"Everyone Is Crazy In Lagos'" -Etcetera writes

Read singer turned write Etcetera new article:

Few weeks ago, I got a call from a friend asking me out for a drink, but I was already at the Lagos airport. “I’m not going to be around for the next few days,” I told him. “I’m going to Abuja.” His immediate reaction was – “Why? What’s wrong?

Do you want to bore yourself to death?” That’s the typical response I get whenever I tell someone I am travelling to Abuja. Abuja is a beautiful city with a terrible reputation for boredom. I have heard people in other cities speak of Lagos as a noisy, dirty and dangerous city filled with crazy people. In truth, everyone in Lagos is crazy. What else do you expect in a state crammed with 22 million people?

Relationships: 5 Ways to Restore Your Faith

woman with purpose
Sometimes when you are faced with difficult situations, you can lose your faith. It can feel like God is not listening or He simply doesn’t care. However, it’s important to remember that faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not yet seen. 

It’s also important to realize there’s a power working on your behalf, even when you can’t see it. But when you learn to trust, despite your circumstances, you will see that your faith is still intact – you just have to hold on. You just have to make the choice to believe. When you find yourself low on faith, here are five ways it can be restored.

Wellness: 5 Great Protein Sources That Aren't Meat

You know you can easily meet your daily protein requirements with a steak or a platter of sashimi, but you can get the essential nutrient from these lesser-expected foods, as well.

1. The Best for Dieters
nuts protein
What They Are: Nuts and seeds
How Much Protein You Get: Almonds and pistachios have about 5–7 grams per ounce; macadamias and hazelnuts have 2–3 grams per ounce.
Why They're Great: Packed with protein as well as healthy monosaturated fat and fiber, nuts are surprisingly filling. This could be why studies keep finding a relationship between eating nuts and dropping pounds.

Relationships: 7 Ways To Create A Happier You

“Happiness is a journey, not a destination.”

All of us are different. All of us are unique. We come from different countries, different backgrounds, and are interested in different things. But there’s one thing that everyone universally wants, no matter who they are: happiness.

We’re constantly trying to chase happiness, as if we can run up to it and catch it and keep it in a shoebox forever. But all of this is in vain. As Souza once said, happiness is a journey, not a destination. There are ways we can live our life to make sure our journey is a happy one.

Here’s 7 Ways To Create a Happier You:

Surround Yourself with Positive People
Assess how you feel after spending time with those close to you. If you’re constantly being put down or feeling unhappy after being in their presence or speaking with them , consider this: you deserve to be surrounded by people who lift you up, not put you down.

Career: 12 Young Entrepreneurs Who Make Me Feel Optimistic About Nigeria's Future

Not long ago I came across a picture on Facebook; it was the first item on my timeline. In the picture were three individuals: my Facebook friend, a successful and commendable African entrepreneur, and another individual. 
Alongside the picture was a caption, which celebrated "the individual," a beneficiary of a brutal military regime. The caption on the picture made me cringe. Immediately, I went through a flashback of Nigeria's history - the picture made me think about Nigeria's future.
Then I began to ask myself a series of questions. Why should we as Nigerians celebrate wealthy beneficiaries of brutal military regimes? Why should we as young people accept their ill-gotten wealth as part of Nigeria's success story? Any good student of Nigerian history can make a clear connection between an individual's sudden access to the nation's resources through illegal means, corruption, or military regimes and actual business growth. In this instance, oil fields belonging to an entire nation were conveniently allocated to one individual.

"Their God Changes The Path Of Our Rocket "

IN October, 1956, David Ben Gurion was interviewed by CBS. He stated: “In Israel, in order to be a realist, you must believe in miracles.”

But the Talmud Yerushalmi tells us that in no way are we to depend on miracles.

It argues that we must not desist from our obligations and must not wait for miraculous intervention from the Supernatural.

How perfectly relevant are both of these views today. We witness hourly miracles.

As one of the terrorists from Gaza was reported to say when asked why they couldn’t aim their rockets more effectively: “We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air.”
