Out With The Old…


It’s strange that I’ve done some of my best writing this year, but have also had the worst blogging year. I almost want to apologise for being flaky. Almost. But I won’t because that would presume that things are going to change. I do not see that happening. Not here.

I was right the other time, I have outgrown this space. It was created for a purpose, and it’s safe to say it has done its work. For that, and for everyone who has been on this journey with me, I am grateful. Immensely. I am thankful that you stuck with me and my random musings as I tried to make sense of my life… As I grew into myself and became comfortable in my own skin. That you have stayed to share in my highs and lows, offered words of comfort on the bad days, virtually held my hand through the incredibly bad days, laughed at my terrible jokes, endured pitiful writing (even now), said an amen to my prayers, and released a sombre “I’ve been there, I understand” when I couldn’t find the words, I’m eternally grateful.

I can’t count the number of people who came into my life because of some of the rubbish I wrote here. The ones who found me even when I was hiding. The ones who emailed when I went MIA and stuck around after. For every, “Hi, Kov. Been a while. Are you okay?” My heart bursts with gratitude.

I will confess that I have tears in my eyes as I type this because I almost do not want to let go. Again, almost. But I must. For what is to come, the old has to be set free.

So this is goodbye (for now). I’ll be back with details of the new spaces (yes, spaces!!) when they are ready.

2014 has been quite a year. If you haven’t already, you can read my review here.

Ending the year with this verse ringing in my head:
Psalm 144:3-4 I wonder why you care, GOD— why do you bother with us at all? All we are is a puff of air; we’re like shadows in a campfire. (MSG)

Still amazed at how much He cares. 2014 was a wonderful year…

Love, light, and an abundance of sunshine,

Kov.

PS. I’m not deleting the contents here. Lord knows I’ll need to revisit often.

Feed Your Soul


I love the Lord, He heard my cry, and pitied every groan…

As I type this, I’m in bed listening to a collection of old hymns and smiling to myself in the dark.
Today wasn’t meant to be a busy day. I had the day off work and the plan was to get some much needed rest. But between doing a bit of laundry, catching up on TV shows, editing a couple of articles, social media runs, and preparing several meals, the day wasn’t exactly restful.
I remember reading something KB posted on Instagram about making an effort to do something good for the soul everyday, I know that I’ve been lacking seriously in that department lately. Too many things seem to be happening all at once and it does get quickly overwhelming. And I seem to be making a lot of mental notes to take care of my soul more… Mental notes that don’t turn into action often enough. Yet I wonder why I’m constantly feeling on edge, out of sorts, frazzled.

Since the move to Lagos, I haven’t been giving as much attention to this lady as I should. I can blame it on a lot of things, but the truth is that we will always make time for what is important to us. So right now I’m intentionally making an effort to feed this beautiful soul of mine… This is the rest she needs. We won’t allow the things around us determine how we behave anymore. We choose to live from within… There better be something healthy inside then.

This is a reminder to myself to give my soul something healthy to feed on everyday. And to live from within. There’s peace here, in this moment. This is how we grow through the process.

Hymns are so beautiful though…

Okay, enough writing. More feeding.

Peace, love, and light,
Kov.
