Life is so short that one needs to get it right at the beginning,
so that one can make it a worthwhile venture
Lots of distractions come every now and then and if care is not taken,
one might lose focus and give in just when it is about to achieve a feat
Life is full of challenges but only the tough will get going
even when the going gets tough
Life is beautiful and should be enjoyed but one needs to dictate the pace,
or else things might not eventually turn right
Life needs to be carefully planned;
goals set, skills and knowledge acquired and shared,
friendship developed and sustained,
care given to those who need it,
laughing and planning to laugh more,
crying when it is necessary,
celebrating the good times,
accessing what caused the bad times and working to make it better next time
Life should be enjoyed
Life must be lived purposely--every day should count and be a step moving one closer to one’s destination.
The destination should be pre-determined so that there would not be a detour
Life may be short and yet purposeful while some may be long and worthless
The choice of a purposeful life is what everyone should consider.

Writer Profile

Hello there! I'm Yemisi, a Nigerian female with a passion for developmental initiatives.

I love writing because it's a way of adding value to other people's lives, i.e. sharing. We all are who we are today just because sometime in our lives we had opportunities to read what someone else had written.

I like advocating for the voiceless, especially the less-privileged ones. I love programs that focus on children, teens, youths and women. I also believe that we all can live lives worthy of emulation (by generations yet unborn) if we contribute positively - by putting in our best in whatever we are involved in.

My first degree is in Economics and I also have a Masters in Humanitarian & Refugee Studies. I'm currently in University of Jyväskylä, Finland studying for a Masters in Development and International Cooperation.

I'm interested in issues relating to children, youth and women empowerment, especially in developing countries like Nigeria.

I have authored 3 books titled - "Child Development: Whose Role", "Let's Help Nigeria", and "Charisma and Character".

I am a facilitator, trainer, business advisor/consultant and a motivational speaker. My goal is to contribute to socio-political and economic development through skills transfer, knowledge sharing, networking and policy advocacy.

Thanks to TIG for giving me a unique platform to share with and meet new friends!
