On Perspective

Happy New Year!!! 🥳💜🎉

Dear reader, I want to say thank you from the depths of my heart. I hadn’t published in 7 months and when I came back, I was excited but really nervous. Thank you for welcoming me back like I wasn’t absent and thank you for sticking with me. I can’t wait to do this year with you.

You’re manifesting everything you desire this year, you know that right?


On Persepective

People can be quick to call someone an idiot because the person has a different opinion than theirs. They forget that people see things differently and just because a person’s perspective doesn’t align with theirs, it doesn’t make them wrong.

Some things are black and white to some people while others see those things in patches or in different shades of grey. I mean, a coin has two sides but what about the edges? Are they not part of the coin too?

What I’m saying is that we should try to accommodate people’s points of view. There are times when what is wrong is wrong and when what is right is right – no dispute there but there are other times when you’re required to be a walking confession booth, where you just listen without judging.

Allow people to show you how they see things. You don’t necessarily have to agree with what they’ve said but the fact that you’ve listened to them shows that you respect them. Not everyone conventionally sees things and it’s fine. If you must disagree, do so respectfully.

So, let’s kill the idea that there’s only one way to look at things. More often than not, it’s not true. Be open to other people’s opinions, without allowing them to influence you if you don’t want to be influenced and who knows, you may learn a thing or two.

Love,

‘Ruona ❤️

Do you agree that we should respect other people’s opinions even when we don’t agree?

There are respectful ways to disagree with someone. Yay or Nay?

Remember Me?

7 months. 7 months is a long time to go without publishing. How could I have stayed away for so long? Circumstances. Circumstances beyond my control. I wasn’t even gone for this long when my phone was stolen in 2017 before I published “Phone-Napped”.

I feel like I have to re-introduce myself and this space again so hi, I’m ‘Ruona. I love sharing my thoughts with you here on Ruonaahsculture. You’d find everything from my personal stories to why I think we should sell Nigeria on eBay – I know, I have weird thoughts sometimes.

‘Ruona until I change my name or something.

If you’re new here, welcome to my little corner of the Internet. This place is filled with positive vibes only. If you’re a regular reader of my blog and have been wondering where I’ve been, I’m back now, and I’ve missed sharing my thoughts with you. I was heartbroken at not being able to post for such a long time, but I had so many other things to attend to. I’m back, and I won’t leave you hanging, I promise.

A lot has happened and I’ll tell you about them in future posts, but here are some highlights:

  • I now live in Gombe State because the Federal Government of Nigeria felt that I should explore the North. Me that wanted to go to Lagos to chill with the big boys? Lol.
  • I’ve begun to find myself doing adult things like paying bills and planning. Nobody told me that it was this hard. God has been faithful.
  • I lost my Granny, the only Grandparent I ever knew. It still feels so unreal.
  • If you’re looking for someone to award “Best in traveling”, look no further except you know someone that has spent more than two days on the road.
  • I hosted my very first writing challenge on Instagram and it was a success.
  • I’ve made mistakes and learned lessons. I’m beginning to see life for what it really is.
  • I’ve met nice people and made friends. I don’t take them for granted.

Let’s just say that life happened and I’m not the same person I was 7 months ago. I hope you’re ready for Ruonaahsculture ‘cos she’s not going anywhere.

No seriously, are you ready?

Please subscribe to Ruonaahsculture if you’ve not (the box is below) and tell a friend to tell a friend that I’m back.

See you in a couple of days.

Love,

‘Ruona. ❤️

Special shout out to my sponsors, Alice (😉) & Davies + every other person that showed concern for my blog when it was down. I don’t take you guys for granted.
