The Perfect Life of a Housewife.

Did i just say perfect! Well, let me start by saying that you can only find perfection in your imperfections, if you search and work hard at it. Many years ago, if I was told, I would be a housewife, I would  have laughed out loud and said not a chance in hell”.

I had always dreamt of being the very one who would give orders in offices, have many staffs to work with, wake up early to go to work, dress very official and all that. I guess life has a way of restructuring whatever plans we sometimes set in place.

Here I am today, a housewife of over 14years. When I sometimes look back, I laugh at myself, shake my head and thank God for my life. So many people have their different perspectives and views when it comes to this very sensitive topic, yes, I say sensitive because there are lots of controversies surrounding it.

There are people who are of the opinion that housewives are women who have been stripped off their rights and integrity by their spouses. Whenever I hear or read these comments, I wonder and say to myself that people draw up conclusions from either what they’ve experienced, read, seen or from pure ignorance.

I believe the decision for a woman to be a housewife even with her great educational background/qualifications is solely a decision between her and spouse, which must come with a lot of understanding on the part of the woman and a lot of genuine convincing promises on the part of the man.

This is where the perfection comes in, a woman forced into being a housewife can never give her best, just as with any other profession. The man must be in a position to fulfill all understandings, reached and agreed upon by both parties and the woman, must also be ready to play her own part. Perfection starts creeping in if given a chance and usually in a gradual process. There are times when you ask yourself “how did I get into this” and there are times you say “I will never trade this for the whole world”.

I find being a housewife very interesting and fulfilling, though, there are times I get so bored purely out of the fact that i allow my mind to drift afar and think of other things i could have been doing with my life. I have learnt to be at peace with my decisions and this is also where your partner needs to come in every now and then, to reassure you, continuously show his support and unwavering love, which must be reciprocated.

Life in general isn’t rosy, so don’t expect yours to be, always try to draw up a plan for each new day, look at the brighter side of life and always learn to see positivity even in the face of adversary, because challenges will always knock at your door. Learning to be at peace within myself and facing all the challenges with wisdom and understanding, which can only be gotten through patience and perseverance by the special grace of God, is what has made me found perfection in being a housewife.

Are you a housewife like me? What are your perspectives and views on this topic? Let us rub minds on this and inspire one another.


Make Your Dreams Happen

Yes, I am referring to YOU! Yes, YOU! What is holding you back? Why do you think you can’t do it? Why are you scared? Why do you keep procrastinating? Why are you giving flimsy excuses on holding back on your dreams? There are so many “WHYS” that require an honest answer from you.

Sitting back and doing nothing about all the “whys” in your life will not answer the questions. As the saying goes ”a journey of a thousand mile starts with a single step”. That single step can make a big difference, do not think about the “what ifs” before you even take that step, because, those are the strings that you have allowed to define and control you for so long and such strings are called “SETBACKS” even before you start.

Tell yourself that enough is enough, you are going to stop making excuses and start make efforts, you are going to stop complaining and start complimenting yourself, you are going to stop whining and start winning. Your destiny lies in your hands, only you can decide what you wish to do with it.

Whenever you fail at something does not mean you are a failure, it only means that you can get better at it, if you try and try again. The number of times you fall does not matter, but how strongly you were able to stand up is all that counts. Don’t ever be scared to try again, because, you will encounter a lot of obstacles in the process, you will or may be told that you’re not good enough or that you can’t make it, all these should make you hunger for success the more, exert all that anger and energy into bettering yourself. What better revenge is there than to shut up your haters with your success. Where are you in your life today? Are you a whiner or a winner? Are you a sucker or a success? Remember, above all, it’s never too late to start.


What are those setbacks in my life?

How can i overcome them?

What are the efforts i am             making to resolve them?

It is time to get up and take the bull by the horn. You are in control of your destiny.
