Beware Of Princess Energy! What is it, and why you should avoid it!
Looking to all and sundry for approval of your decisions. As a sovereign being over your own personal life, you don’t need the approval of everyone. No it behooves you to obtain advice, counsel, mentoring or coaching from the appropriate people. However, the approval of everybody and their grandmother is not needed. Taking advice from the wrong people: some people literally run away from the right people and take advice from the wrong people. What do I mean by the wrong people? People have an agenda beyond your own success. People who have disparaged you in the past. People who are typically not supportive. I think there’s something in it in people where we want our critics to approve of us. The truth is that this is why they are critics. Frequently, they will never approve. Seek advice from people who have your best interest at heart. Better yet, learn to trust your own intuition, and add counsel, as another layer. Being afraid to do the unconventional. How many times have you heard people say things like “I’ve never seen that done this way before“. The truth is unconventional does not mean wrong or bad. As a sovereign person over your own life, you are the only person, that knows the details and intricacies of your own life. Therefore there will be times when you will have to make decisions that are not popular, but our decisions for your own good. Not being in integrity: as a sovereign person, you need to walk your talk. In addition, your thoughts, feelings, and actions should pretty much line up. If you are pretending to be OK with being an employee just because everyone around you seems to be that way, you will never attain the heights of what you truly want. This is because your actions are out of integrity with your thoughts and feelings. What if do you want to own your own business? Also, the converse is true. Nowadays, in this gig economy, many people are starting businesses and it is causing a lot of people who don’t feel the need to do so to feel a bit left out. Don’t run off and start a business that your thoughts and feelings are not lined up with, simply because everyone is doing so, that is a lack of integrity. Giving away your personal sovereignty. There are things that you control, and there are things that you cannot control. A sure way to live a disappointed life Is trying to Control things you cannot, while simultaneously not controlling the things that you can. You can control what you eat, who you listen to, what do you think, what do you feel, who are you allowing in your life, how much time you spend on non-obligatory activities; the life you choose to create. You cannot control what the government does, the weather, the traffic, what specific illness what patient has; how many COVID-19 patients there are; and a myriad of other things. Make a distinction between the two and spend more time, money, and energy in the things that you can actually control.

Stop Making All These New Year Resolutions
There is nothing magical, spiritually significant, or special about the first day of January except the significance that we ourselves attach to it. I like to remind myself that the Gregorian calendar is man-made and was a reform of a previous calendar( the Julian calendar) which was itself a reform of the Roman calendar. There are also in use many different calendars( the lunar calendar, Igbo calendar, Hebrew calendar, the Chinese calendar, etc) in use, side by side with the Gregorian. The point I am making is that you do not have to “make new year resolutions”; you do not have to fall into despair at the end of the year, and you do not have to wait until the first of January to make the changes that you need to make in life. The first of January is, however, a convenient time to set goals, and, the span of a year is a good time to review those goals you set( depending on what they were). However, new year resolutions are a total waste of time.

Season 2: Episode 3: Back To The Basics- The Five Pillars Of A Balanced Life Part 2
When you live a Balanced Life, you are better equipped to handle what life throws at you. Why do I prefer to talk about the balanced life, instead of self-care. Self-care conjures up pictures of a spa day, Massage, exercise, and sometimes people throw in meditation. The balanced life, however prioritizes total care for your spirit soul and body. It is divided into five pillars, which I call the five pillars of balance. Physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and relational. When “self care” is seen from this perspective, it becomes more than just one spa day every few months. It is a way of life. It is realizing that unless you take care of yourself consistently, you are no good to anyone. Contrary to what seems to be popular belief, a balanced life does not mean giving equal amounts of time, energy, and focus to everything in your life. That is not possible to do. Somethings in your life are more important than others, and some things in your life are more important at certain times than others. Of course, true emergencies are most important, and most urgent. For example, a burst appendix, is always going to be more important than a  therapy session, simply because it is a life threatening emergency. I will now break down the five pillars of balance, and how to be practical about taking care of the whole you.

Episode 11: The Power Of A Personal Retreat
 Every three months I go on a one day personal retreat. I save up a few dollars each month, and I use this to book a hotel room within a 30-40 minute distance from my home and I take off. I usually stay for 10 to 12 hours and I have no agenda. As someone who plans out every single minute of her life, this is a refreshing change of pace. I pray, sleep, swim, exercise, eat, read, and do very little by way of work. Since I started taking these personal retreats, my life has moved to a new level. I have become more creative, more productive, more efficient and more peaceful. Here is the power of a personal retreat when done properly...

Episode 7: 5 Actionable Tips For A Thriving Marriage
In 2005, we tied the knot. Sealed the deal. Got hitched. Jumped the broom. A year later, we moved to Chicago. From then on, it was an endless cycle of offenses, silent treatment, outbursts, and make up sex. The next three years of our marriage were rather rocky. Fast forward to 2019, our marriage is thriving, we have helped many people’s marriages not only survive but thrive; we have counseled scores of people getting married, and we have our own marriage charity.
