PickOfTheWeek – Hope when it seems impossible

Medieval (4)

How do you feel when you have literally given up on something happening and in the midst of that dark cloud, a silver lining shows up?

How do you feel? Probably pure joy. 

That’s one of the feelings a writer described on today’s PickOfTheWeek . We hope you love this week’s articles. 

The first is by rockcalvary and we love this post because it captures the realities of our heart when people we term as important don’t see us the same way. Has this ever happened to you? 

farmto tableLove makes people say stuff though. When we saw this post we didn’t know what to make of it but then we understand that the promise of forever means a lot to people. What have you said or done in the name of love?

The next post is for those who usually wait for inspiration to do work that has to be done. It is easy to wait to feel like doing work but it is not ideal. We honestly have nothing else to add. Thank you Oluwadara for this. farmto table (2) The last piece for today struck a chord and if you read our introductory post, you’d understand what we mean. Sometimes all we need is a little light at the end of the tunnel. farmto table (1)

#PickOfTheWeek – The lies we tell ourselves

  Medieval

Hey Sparkle Writers! Our #PickOfTheWeek is back! We’re excited about the writers we are featuring today. We hope you learn a thing or two from this week’s pick.

Temi is speaking the absolute truth and everyone needs to read it.  There is no point living in regret. We have to move on. 

farmto table (2)

 Those ‘I am not enough’ ‘ I would do it tomorrow’ kinda lies. Be conscious of them, they are slow and silent killers. Gbolahan is one of our steady writers, there’s something about the way he writers.  farmto table (3)Oh if everyone could see the next post. Tomiwa hit the nail on the head Whether as writers or in our individual lives it is important that we remember this all the time. No forming, no pretense just be you. farmto table Desolape is one real writer! There are honestly some memories not worth remembering, the question is how do we erase them? Anyone with answers? farmto table (1)

#PickOfTheWeek – Is there anything like a perfect fit in love?

Medieval.png

We’ve discovered that Tuesday’s are one of the most popular days on the blog probably because that’s when we feature all the amazing writers we meet on social media. We figured that’s your way of saying thank you!👍👍👍

Four incredibly talented writers are on our Pick this week. 

Let’s start with Muhamad Gbolahan’s piece. 

farmto table There are a number of reasons we love this. Maybe its because he points out that we would not always have it easy or because he reminds us that even in those tough circumstances we need to find light at the end of the tunnel. 

The next piece is by WriterZues 

farmto table (3) We say this over and over but once in a while it is good you hear it from another source. Never be afraid to pour your heart out on paper. 

Victory goes on to give insight about love and finding the perfect fit. 

farmto table (2)What do you think about it?

The last piece on our #PickOfTheWeek is by Blessing

Hard work really isn’t a crime but even if it is Blessing thinks we should be ready to commit that crime over and over again. Thank you for reminding us of this truth Blessing!

farmto table (4) Michael Inioluwa sure explains the heart of many people who have ever gone through painful heart breaks. Those tears don’t stop coming.

farmto table (3)

Haha! This is so true. There are times your head tells your heart what to do but it just won’t listen. Who else has experienced it? Oluwadara we love this post. farmto table (1) We saw this and instantly knew we had to share. Who would have thought? Sometimes letting go doesn’t mean forgoing the relationship.  Who agrees?

farmto table (2)

When you know that going back to the past is not even an option.  The best you can do is move far away from it.

#PickOfTheWeek – On women and imperfections

Medieval (1).jpg

It’s another #PickOfTheWeek and we think it’s absolutely beautiful how our  picks are always (well most of the time) in sync. 

Today’s writers are talking about the sacrifices, struggles of women and imperfections. Let us know which one you could relate with. 

farmto table (1) 

Our first pick is by Gina. We love this because it describes how possible it is to pick up dreams that have long been forgotten and make something out of it. 

 

 

farmto table (2)  

As sad as this is, we know it is true!  Sometimes we try hard to win those battles against ourselves, habits and instead of getting better we usually go back to the same spot where we started off. 

 

farmto table (3)How many of us look at ourselves and complain about one thing or the other? Almost all of us! But the truth is that despite all our imperfections there’s still so much we have to offer. So much our world needs from us.  Okwuwoga Temitope nailed this one. 

 

 

farmto tableMothers are truly precious.  They can give whatever they have just to make sure their children are doing well.  Thank you Kolade for this beautiful post.

#PickOfTheWeek – Setting 2018 on course

Medieval.png

It’s our first PickOfTheWeek for the year and we have selected some amazing pieces to kickstart 2018.

From a prayer to a candid advice and inspiration, 2018 is looking good already.

The first piece to be featured today is by Oluwadunsin Deinde-Sanya. Such apt prayers to start the year. We all know that we can’t afford to be fearful especially if we want better results this year.

 

farmto table(2)

 

There are times we get discouraged because of those people who keep reminding us of our shortcomings.  All we can say is this, it won’t be long! Hey Ella this is one beautiful piece.

farmto table(3)

 

Who else just gets excited thinking about the possibilities and opportunities 2018 has? Adigun Mide knows this too

farmto table(1)

 

Last and definitely not the least is this! Simple and straight to the point. In 2018, don’t get distracted.

#PickOfTheWeek – Success redefined

 

Medieval(1).jpgHey Sparkle Writers! Our #PickOfTheWeek focuses so much on success and we felt it would be good to define or maybe redefine what it means as we enter a new year.

We hope you learn a thing or two from this week’s pick.

Do you agree with us that Gbolahan always brings his A game on in this segment? Today isn’t any different. His take on success is true.

 

 

farmto table(1)

 

 

Sometimes we have to go through those ‘dark’ times to have victory because it is in those times we conquer our demons. We couldn’t have said it any better Victoria.

  farmto table(2)

Writers will know this so well. Sometimes you are writing a story or an article and by the time you are done you realize it isn’t the idea you started with that you ended with. It’s probably a better one.

farmto table(3)

When help is dong more harm than good, it is better to let go. Victory is right with this one.

#PickOfTheWeek – Life is in seasons

Medieval

Hey Sparkle Writers, it has been months since we started the #PickOfTheWeek  segment on the blog and it’s been amazing.

Like other Tuesday’s we have four amazing writers from instagram whose posts will be featured today.  Let us know what you think.

The first post is by Hannah and she strikes the right chords talking about one sided love.  It can be heart breaking when you are giving all you’ve got and you’re not getting any response.

farmto table(5)

 

 

True! Every thing that seems impossible and stressful will soon be in the past. All we’ve got to do is hold on. Thank you Mercy for this.   farmto table(4) 

Hussaynes gives us some much needed advice in this post. One of the reasons our relationships are not working is because we’ve not taken out time to understand people.

farmto table(3)  This post helps to buttress the previous one in a unique way. We don’t have to think alike to have fun. Do things your way and enjoy yourself while you’re at it.farmto table(2)

#PickOfTheWeek – Life as we know it

Meaning pf wpebegone (1).png

Social media has changed the way life is and the earlier we accept it the better. Today’s title is dedicated to one of the posts we selected. You will love this week’s pick. 

This is one great thing writing does. It helps to pass strong messages across without causing so much trouble. Thank you Fawaz for sharing. 

brunch (1)Sue Chioma touches a very important point with this post. Home is where the heart is but we all agree that home means different thins to different people. While some have family members who make life beautiful, others have found succor in the arms of friends. Whatever home means to you, you will agree with us that there’s no place like it. 

brunch (3)Your work goes before you and speaks clearly. Not just your words. We’re with Muhamad on this one. brunch (4)Tomiwa blew our minds away with this post. Social media has made it easy for you to know that you are not alone. Going through something and want to find out who else is going through the same thing? Hashtag it! brunch

The first post by Richard Dappa tells us the differnece between a man and a woman from a fresh perpective. Do you agree with him? brunch (4).pngMost times we are get upset when we feel like failed others but Muhamad Gbolahan reminds us that when we fail ourselves, fail to work on those big dreams, that is the biggest failure, although there is a way out of that too. 

brunch (1) 

We told you there was a solution! Adebisi Olaniyi brings the solution with her post. Even when you fail yourself or make mistakes, don’t dwell in them. It is not wise.

The last post for today is by Sue Chioma. If you are a recurrent procrastinator this is for you. Whateever you have to do, do quick.
