Conversations with The ImisiOluwa

By Imisioluwa Olalekan Owonikoko
There are conversations that are well beyond the boundaries of 'pen on paper'. Some heartfelt and straight-up words that provide context to concepts. That's what this podcast is about. Here are my musings on Love, Life, and Faith as I probe human thoughts and thoughts around these themes. Sometimes, I'm right. Sometimes, I way out of line. And at other times, I'm just as clueless. Trust me, It's going to be a funny, yet insightful, and inspiring ride. Buckle your seat belts.

Conversations with The ImisiOluwa

Labalábá and Barbecue Fires
Ever heard of that song that says it is impossible for a butterfly to extinguish a barbecue fire? Well, that's a true saying, but..... There are truly impossible things, but only within given contexts. Seasons change, miracles happen, content changes, change happens, discoveries are made, and what seems to be impossible becomes possible.

I should say I'm not a fan of BBN and may not be fully aware of the intricacies of the situation between Erica and Laycon, but I've followed on social media and asked a few questions from some ardent followers. Of a truth, more people than not, have been in a position where the one they want do not want them, and it hurts. And depending on our emotional maturity, our reaction will differ. I have been in his position, more than once, and I have learnt a few things.

The Peril of New Beginnings
We are often burdened by our failures, inadequacies, and inability to move past certain cycles. We are always looking for a way out-a way to beat our past records, a way to escape those evils that make our goals redundant. In our subconscious minds, we look forward to new beginnings-a new year, a new month, a new day, a new job, a new everything. It gives us hope that we can succeed this time. We even promise ourselves that we will not repeat it in this new chapter. Gradually, this becomes an addiction. We no longer focus on the specific steps to bring about our change, if we can achieve it or restrategize,  but on the euphoria that the new beginnings give. And with this, we begin the cycle again.
