I can’t forget how I felt. My ObGyn had opted for a GA for my Cesarean section and what that meant was I was going to be knocked out through the entire process. Awesome medical team that were with me in that theatre. They gisted with me, asking me questions until the effect of the ketamine kicked in and I found myself in another world, oblivious of all the pain my brain would have felt as they cut open horizontally just above my bikini line were I conscious. The feeling you feel is one of highness. Similar to those who take those hard drugs. This was my second time feeling high. The same was the case with my first son, even though it was not a section, but things went south quickly right after I pushed out a 4.4kg baby and they sha had to knock me out to fix things.
If you haven’t had a baby, I am scaring you please. At the same time, preventing teenage and out-of-wedlock pregnancy. That shi* is HARD. A friend of mine who just had her first baby said she is having a hysterectomy, that is having her womb removed cos she no do again lol. I am almost tempted to join her. Lol
Ok back to my ‘highness’. With my first, hubby wasn’t with me as I came to myself again, but I still recall how very drowsy I felt. With my second, hubby was right there as the ketamine wore off and he still has not let me hear the last of it as I kept saying NO FOCUS NO FOCUS.
I was desperately trying hard to make out the face of my newborn but that drug was messing with me. Bolaji has even taught KingDaveed how to say NO FOCUS so even the 3year old teases me with it.
Well thankfully, I did gain focus but that was only after I heeded to my husband’s plea for me to rest my head, shut my mouth and sleep. The focus came after I woke, but don’t let me talk about the PAIN I felt when I woke. At least, I could now see my baby even through the pain, so let’s focus on that haha.
Speaking of focus and thinking of those stories, I am reminded once again that I NEVER want to leave life without a clear focus on the things that really matter.
As a business woman and CEO of a growing business who wants to make money, yes, but also make disciples for Christ and make JESUS famous in her field of work, I truly have to keep my focus clear and my vision 20-20. So easy to be distracted mehn. So easy that on many days, I need therapy/my therapist just to stay obedient to God and stay fighting satan and all the lies he throws down.
Which is why I love to hang out not just with colleagues but Christian colleagues. Christians in the corporate world and entrepreneurs.
I recall one time earlier this year someone accused me of being proud, anti-social and co meanwhile all the other fitness chicks in Nigeria interacted online and engaged with each other bla bla bla. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to. It was that I was working on making sure that my FOCUS game on HIM stayed clear. I just want to make sure that my interactions don’t further haze my vision.
That is also why I don’t just attend any and every program, both the spiritual and even the professional ones. Also why I don’t apply every principle no matter how I see it working for XYZ. I just like to sieve and filter it through my own purpose, vision and principal/Boss (Jesus). I don’t care who, I just fight to keep my vision clear and my focus on Jesus
Set your gaze on the path before you. With fixed purpose, looking straight ahead, ignore life’s distractions . Watch where you’re going! Stick to the path of truth, and the road will be safe and smooth before you. Don’t allow yourself to be sidetracked for even a moment or take the detour that leads to darkness.
Proverbs 4:25-27 TPT
Which is why I am here for any thing that helps me sharpen my professional skills in a Christian atmosphere
People who know how to do business with Jesus, or mix Corporate with Faith as they serve delicious, excellent, good and profitable work to the world.

Ok let me bless you all with a few of my recent pictures cos your girl has been SLAYING even though she has not been updating her blog.
Sorry I won’t be blogging like that cos I am winding down for the year and just trying to press into all God is saying to me as I plan for the next year. I will be taking in more than I will be giving out cos I will need some strength and depth for the heavy new year. I gained so much spiritual, professional and intellectual weight this year that it is time to go back to my notes, and find practical ways to apply and stuff. No time for frivolities.
Plus, you all remember I hinted about how the vision guides everything in this post. Yup. I am living through that and I hope I have a few hundred CRAZY women along for the ride.
Plus, whoop for POWWOW THIS DECEMBER.
I can’t even begin to tell yawl just how AWESOME it has been going. God bless my team. Love you ladies and I am thankful for you.
And I am super pumped for the Stay at home moms cos God has already done testimonies.
I am on a lot via @coachesquad @stayhomemoms.ng @savedfitpregnant
