Because of the cross...

Hey lovelies
Easter represents the price that Jesus had to pay for us Christians. Christians generally celebrate this season casting their minds back to the cross.
When I think of the cross, so many things come to mind

What is physiotherapy?

Hey Lovelies
What's up with Nigerians and the way they see physiotherapy?
Once they ask me about my profession and I mention physiotherapy, everyone starts asking for a massage. Physiotherapists are not massage therapists #takenote
Fine, we all took a course in massage as one of the techniques that can be used in certain situations. It is a very very minute part of the overall curricula.

Read more on physiotherapy here
I hope that goes a long way in clearing the box physiotherapy has been put into in Nigeria.

Ebola now in Nigeria

Hey lovelies
I'm just sad.
I read some reports on the progress of the Ebola outbreak and I found out Nigerians are now at risk.
Don't we have enough problems already as it is?  We are still trying to battle HIV, maternal and child mortalities ... and now this?! Please we can't let it settle. Quarantine fast!
Dear health minister, we are not a rich country so we cannot battle the consequences of Ebola, our best bet now is preventive measures.  So every one all hands on deck, sit up!!!

Facts about Ebola
It is deadly
There is no vaccine  which is really bad
It spreads like wild fire

Something to get us really worried!

Dear Beyonce...

Hey lovelies
Some people shock the hell out of my bones.
I'm sure by now you are well acquainted with the story of the Knowles' dilemma
I remember when Tina and Matthew Knowles used to rock everywhere like the perfect couple.
I mean you could see a great family with a  really strong bond.
The father was their manager, the mum was somewhere there as the background support and sometimes, stylist.
And then boom! We heard Matthew was having an affair.

Ebola outbreak in Guinea

Hey lovelies
There's an Ebola outbreak in Guinea that has claimed the lives of many.
The cause has been traced to a special delicacy made from bats. These bats were reported to have carried the Ebola virus which were then transmitted to the victims when they ate them.

The World Health Organization reports that this virus kills about 25% - 95% of its victims.
Symptoms include bleeding, diarrhea and vomiting.

A few interventions have been put in place to manage the situation. However, 62 people have already been reported dead in Guinea while neighboring places like Liberia and Sierra  Leone have also been seen to have a few reported cases of Ebola.

Have you heard of the Ebola virus before?

Love always

Style my way: The power of imagination

Hey lovelies

Now that is beyond sexy, and it's all about utilizing the power of the mind.

Painless

Have you ever experienced pain until it becomes painless?
Sometimes, I want to decipher if what I feel is withdrawal to pain or resilience
I had so much pain that it meant nothing
I hurt so much that I started to feel a physical cramp on my chest
But I'm done crying, mourning and everything that brings pain, because I said so.

I've paid my dues, it was long overdue
I know how it feels to feel pain
I needed it,  I learnt empathy
I know what it feels to hope, I needed it, now I can tell you about being hopeful
I have had a taste of fear, I needed it, I understood exactly why the opposite of it is courage.

I promise I understand when you cry, when you hurt, when you are afraid, when you are hungry, when you hope till hope is all you have
I have been there. I have felt it all
I know how it feels to have everything, then lose it all
I've been on that road so many times.

So believe me when I say, I know exactly how you feel when the feeling you feel becomes so intense until all you feel is the feeling you feel


Have a lovely weekend

Love always
JB

On Lupita and Dencia

Hey lovelies
I know by now everyone has heard of the heated feud between Lupita and Dencia.
So a few days back Lupita had to give a speech at the essence black women in Hollywood luncheon like everyone else that has won an award in the past had to, but of course without any name dropping.
And this is an excerpt of her speech
I want to take this opportunity to talk about beauty, black beauty, dark beauty. I received a letter from a girl and I’d like to share just a small part of it with you: "Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.
Watch the video instead, if you may





Was all that necessary? 
Ok guys, before you jump into calling me a hater, here is my opinion of Lupita:
She is talented. She is beautiful. 
I was one of the first people to jump on the Lupita love train and I even blogged about it
Read it here

Do you want to know what I thought of that speech? Keep reading!
