HAPPINESS…. (The most important part of life)

So my girl Simi writes this beautiful piece about happiness on her blog and I just had to get her permission to share it with you all. The write-up reminds me a lot about my new year resolution which is based on “My happiness”.

Many times we find ourselves completely forgetting about us while trying to please people around us. I remember sitting down to actual reflect on my life, mistakes I had made, friends I had lost through silly fights and the cruel hands of death. I thought about the plan I had for myself that had gone so opposite from what I was facing, I concluded God had a better plan for me, I just had to keep believing in him. I also thought about relationships I had entered, friends I had tried to force myself on that ended up hitting me in the face. I thank God everyday cause those experiences was more an eye opener helping me  know more about life and how to become stronger through every disappointments and setbacks. So when I came across Simi’s post I was like “Hey why not share this beautiful post with you all”. Below is what she wrote;


“Happiness is a mood not a destination”
This is a sentence I use a lot. and it makes a whole lot of sense to me..
Happiness is a skill you can build with consistent practice, you have the ability to control how fulfilling your life is.
Happiness should not be tied to a person other than yourself, sadly, most times we cant help it, especially when it comes to someone you love, or things you love, which is only natural.
someone once said to me” since I met you your always happy, even when you are not happy your happy” and I thought to myself ” It took a while for me to get here and hearing this about me makes me happy”
The mistake a lot of people make, most especially women is tie their happiness to a particular person OTHER than themselves: boyfriend! husband! (this is not a sub lol), it comes somewhat natural but its totally wrong. whatever the person does to you affects you, physically, emotionally, even mentally. It changes you.
If your going to tie your happiness to someone else, keep some for yourself. this keeps you sane lol. Trust me. Self Happiness,  from within is very important, keeps you balanced to every situation that comes your way.
Also never stop doing what you love even if its mutual, this is wrong in a lot of ways. keep doing what you love, this ensures you still have a lil bit of you in what ever situation your in.( Relationship)
My Point is Happiness has a lot to do with you than anybody else, don’t waste your time being grumpy when you can be happy.
Also Positive thoughts is key, DO NOT try to compare yourself to anyone else, we are all different and that makes us special in different ways.
“Happiness is a Choice not a Result, Nothing would make you happy unless you choose to be Happy”
Remember not to blame feelings on others. Your feelings are by definition “what you choose to feel.” So next time someone hurts you, let go of their careless words and choose to be HAPPY.

This beautiful piece was written by Simileoluwa Onagoruwa, you could read more wonderful articles on her blog ” http://cicisimie.blogspot.com/“.

A friend once wrote “You can’t put a price-tag on peace of mind”, your happiness is all that matters, the fact we wake up everyday is enough reason to be happy, So start today doing things that make you happy and stay positive, pray and be rest assured, God got us all covered.





Many times we find ourselves in a fix thinking of where to get that breathtaking shot that will have everyone wowing at the sight. Sometimes we get lucky and find a very good photographer but the price for just a shot not to mention a whole coverage has you at “on looking”. Some times its affordable, the photographer is good but the whole design and creativity is completely lacking.

Be it Fashion shoots, weddings, birthdays, events, Learning, creativity, designs, graphics etc. BANTU STUDIO got you covered and guess what?!

Life is full of surprises and difficulties. A twist of fate can make your life miserable or blooming as the spring flower. Some people know how to handle the miseries, some don’t but instead let the inner fights surpass and resulting to pushing the people around them away.

Everyone has their struggle in life, you think you have the greatest of problems till you hear the next persons and then you realize yours is even better. No Struggle is not worth the concern but I personally feel what every struggle or problem we face, trying to look at the brighter side of it helps in over coming it, It makes us stronger in every way. 

Last year September I watched a movie called “The fault in our stars” If you haven’t seen it, I recommend you do but make sure you have you hankie with you. This movie had me crying like a little child, I didn’t even care people were around me. It was a story about a girl called Hazel who had terminal thyroid cancer that had spread to her lungs, she became really depressed and was encouraged to join a cancer group where she met Augustus who was so full of life even after losing one leg from bone cancer. Augustus made Hazel see that life was beautiful and worth living every single day to perfection in good health or not. Long story short, Augustus had a relapse, the cancer spread all over his body and was terminal. This didn’t stop him, he was stronger and even had a pre burial done for him so he could be in attendance before the burial when he would be no more. He died eight (8) days later. 

This movie made me realize that Life is beautiful and worth a lot more than worrying and feeling downcast most of the time. People have struggles more challenging than you and they still stay strong and fight to overcome them. At times, I think the world around me is crumbling to the ground, but it never does. Like most people, I face the crunches of deadlines and endless demands on my time, but I have never encountered the type of adversity that can crush people, that can drive people crazy, that can drive them to suicide. 

So in the spirit of Easter, I urge you to stay strong, pray, have faith and believe that God has you covered and what ever situation we find ourselves in it’s just God testing us and preparing us for greater things.
