Dear WordPress and its inhabitants, I have missed you dearly. I have not posted in ages due to many silly excuses I kept giving myself.
But this is a new month, a new day, a new beginning, new challenges, new opportunities, and of course, a new post all in the same old Alluring n Young blog.
I must have disappointed a lot of people by my absence, I apologise. I pray I get the long lasting motivation, inspiration and zeal required to stay on the radar more.
It is good to be back again. A lot of things have been happening to me and in the world around me and topmost among them is still the issues facing women which seem to be escalating. take domestic violence for instance, it is becoming damn too rampant.
But on the other hand, I feel that more women are finding their voices, seeking freedom and happiness, individually and in groups, drawing strength and courage from each other, and that is commendable.
My country on its part has been going through so many storms that it is beginning to feel like we are gonna be stuck in it longer, but God forbid. What with the ill and absent President and the dwindling economy. The environment still suffers from various forms of degradation from oil exploration.
But We have hope, sometimes that is all we have, sometimes, it is what we need to survive.
On another level, sex education and sex related issues are coming up in public discussions more often than ever before in Nigeria. Who would have thought that Nigeria and Nigerians can one day begin to discuss sex openly and freely on the social media to the point of creating groups whose sole purpose is to discus sex. I did not know I would live to see that day, but alas, it is here upon us and I am glad.
On that note, I welcome me back and welcome you back. Please ride with me as we continue on this journey of finding our voice… finding happiness.
Nigerians are not safe in Nigeria, why would they be safe elsewhere? Nigerian government has no regards for its citizens, why should South Africans value Nigerian lives? Why are Nigerians even struggling to flee to other countries? It us because our Government has failed us in the first place. Otherwise, why would the Federal Government take such brutality as this calmly? Which is why it has become an annual event.
South Africans have so hastily forgotten their history, would they know their future?

The killings of Some African nationals especially Nigerians in south African has now become a yearly open season for committing genocide against them. Despite the FG sending feeble yearly messages to the South African government, this has only emboldened this murderous South Africans to carry out their evil act with impunity yet the FG can only send a message of condemnation.
Why is it that, at the slightest rumour of some alleged Nigerians or Africans misdemeanour all hell will break loose. True some immigrants have been carrying out various nefarious activities in the host nation but then South Africa is understood to have a rule of law that underpin its society but this seems to have disappeared in recent times and replaced with Isis like savagery except without the suicide bombers. Most indigenous black south Africans have low economic prospects which has resulted partly in resentment…

I raise a toast to a happy, successful and exciting 2017 to all of us.
Making it into the new year is a big feat, a big leap for all of us that made it thus far considering the number of people we personally know who did not make it.
That should give us enough reason to make every moment of everyday of 2017 count. At least I hope it will for me.
I am not one for new year resolutions because I do not keep them. But I have just two goals for 2017. No idea of how to go about them yet though. But they say that where there is a will, there is a way!
I do not want to bore us this early in the year. I just wanted to wish all of us the best of the year and encourage us to become better persons in 2017.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Love is very complicated. It’s such a complex thing yet so beautiful if one finds it – true love at that. A love that can withstand all the frictions that encroaches on the peace in most relationships. No two people are perfect but once you desire for a lasting relationship, then be ready to pay the price by being committed. This means that one must not allow the flaws to destroy the bond and friendship that exist with one’s partner.
