To all those cynics who are critics of the concept of selflove; we may then together clarify that self-love is not being selfish - you cannot truly love another until you know how to love yourself. Falling in love with yourself doesn’t make you vain or selfish. It makes you endearing. Don't waste your energy trying to change opinions. Don’t seek validation. Do your thing, and don't care if they like it or not. Owning our story and loving ourselves through this process is the bravest thing that we'll ever do.

“When I accept myself just as I am, I am freed from the burden of needing others accept me.” the prestigious American Music Award in 2016 stands testimony to my narrative here.

TRANSCENDENCE DECODED Transcendence in simple words is the act of rising above something to a superior state. Transcendence comes from the Latin prefix trans-, meaning "beyond," and the word scandare, meaning "to climb." When you achieve transcendence, you have French is your delight in simply living your life. People who seem to enjoy life in a cheerful and spirited way are often

play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary” said Sir Cecil Beaton, the British photographer, an Academy Award winning costume and set designer, known primarily for his portraits of celebrated persons. You are free, you are powerful, you are good, you are love, you have value, you have a purpose. Eat like you love yourself. Move like you love yourself. Speak like you love yourself. Act like you love yourself.

THE LAST WORD Be yourself. Be your own. You were born to be real, not to be perfect. An original is so much better than a copy. You may have some limitations. You must strive to look and go beyond your “perceived limitations”. You created them and only you can dispel them. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does - that makes you a winner right here. So, since you are unique, why not celebrate that fact? Dare to be your own person and

The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Have the courage to accept yourself. When you accept and love yourself amazing things happen. You become more aware of who you are and you gain confidence. You know what you deserve and what kind of behavior you should and shouldn't accept, so you don't let people get away with manipulating you to suite their own agenda. Hold on to your own strings and let no one remote-control you!

It has become a buzzword because some say team, but they are working for their own best interest only!

The word “team” means: “Together Everyone Achieves More!” A team consists of a group of people who bring different skills for the common good. They come together; each team member has a different assignment! When we operate as a team, then we add value to the company, to the 18 AUGUST 2021 - 27TH ISSUE

YOUR BEDROOM Sleeping is a biological must. Without enough quantity and quality sleep we just simply cannot function and survive. When we are rested we feel more energetic, positive, more capable so we can focus better and accomplish more. Although we can rest and snooze off several times a day in different spaces, it is the bedroom where real quality sleep happens. So creating a bedroom that allows for deep, restorative sleep is essential for the sake of your physical and mental health.

Powerful Global Women Foundation (Powerhouse Charity) was founded in 20l6 in Nigeria, West Africa, by Lady Anita Duckworth-Bradshaw. The core objective of this organization is to transform the lives of women and children, through various projects centred around the need of the service group. In 20l6 Lady Anita single handedly fed over 400 children as part of “project feed l000 children globally”, and held an empowerment conference for the women. Through this project, so many women have gone to do great things with the knowledge they gained from the event. She recently held a life transforming event for women in Lagos, Nigeria as part of International women’s month celebration 20l8. The turnout was very encouraging. She is working towards supporting more families to keep their children and wards in school through” project back-to-school” starting in September 20l8.
