#30Letters II



I trust that this meets you well.

It’s the 2nd cycle of the writing series  #30Letters!!! Yay!!!

It starts on the 1st of April and runs through the #30 days in April.

What is #30Letters about?  

The idea is for ‘writers’ to write a letter addressed to a person or group of persons, organization, something or anything they are passionate about. Click here to read letters from last season.(Be warned, you may cry some and laugh some…lol)

Who qualifies as a ‘writer’?

Anyone who can string a few words together, expressing his/her thoughts about a  subject matter qualifies as a writer in this context. So, don’t be an onlooker.

It can be good, it can be bad, it can be ugly, it can be funny, anything that comes to mind. For example;

A Letter to My Next

A Letter to My Future Wife (or Wife -as the case may be)

A Letter to Women

A Letter to Men

A Letter to God

A Letter to My Kids/Children

A letter to Ngozi

A Letter to my Crush

A Letter to Rice & Beans

A Letter to Nigeria

A Letter to My Ex

A Letter to Love

The list, however; is inexhaustive, so, you are free to choose anything you want to write about. One Letter will be published a day for 30 days.

Dive in, dig deep and start writing your letter(s).

You can start sending your letters today.

The deadline for submission is the 3rd of April, 2018.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe- God Always Has a Plan



As a firm believer in the God of the Christian faith, I have made my way through my journey in life always with the assurance that I am never alone and that one way or the other, all things will always work out for my good. It is one of the most reassuring feelings honestly, having faith in Someone you cannot see but whose essence is captured quite easily in a lot of the things you see around you. That is not to say that there will not be moments of doubt. I have just learned over time to feed my faith and starve my doubts.

2017 is only halfway through yet I believe I already have my biggest lesson for the year. Continue reading

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – There will be Storms…


Life has taught me that people can turn against you so easily. Even those with the best intentions. Even those you least expect. This is one lesson that gets me scared. I remember instances where this lesson has been forcefully crushed into my brain and sometimes I am numb. I have learnt that best friends might become sworn enemies. People you trust can betray you in a split second. And so I am naturally wary when it comes to making new friends or keeping friends. Because I figure, they might leave eventually. Don’t get me wrong- I am not bitter. People who know me would tell you that. But now I understand that people can just up and leave. It happens. This has helped me stay strong when that happens or when I have been hurt by people. Continue reading

On Moving On!

Moving on

It was supposed to be easy. After all, it was always easy. But it is not the case right now.

What have you done to me? Why I’m I the one dragging my feet in the emotional ocean that ‘Love’ has cascaded over my soul?

I was the best at walking away and leaving them hanging. How did I get undone? The chess champion has been doused. It was all in the name of Love – Now blindsided, no more playing seven moves ahead. Continue reading




I know you all have been wondering what happened as you kept coming to check if a new story has come up just yet – I’m so sorry.

I had some personal things I had to deal with. Never knew it would take me this long to sort out.

But I am back!

Spread the word that #LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe is back on. Yasss!




#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe: Society Can’t Be Pleased


Growing up I was a plump child; of course, that’s not what the other kids would call it. This was caused by my love for food and not knowing the effect that too much of it can have. Insecurities began to mount but not as much as when I entered secondary school. I didn’t worry as much because my mother assured me that my chubbiness was mere baby fat and would wear off in my teenage days. Continue reading

Count Down to #LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe


Hello all,

It’s #8 days to our August series! #LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe… Yaaay!!!!

I am super excited and looking forward to this. I hope you all are as well.

Please, kindly share with us your story today if you haven’t done that already.

I’m organizing a series for the month of August which is slated to run through the 5th of August to the 3rd of September 2017.

The title is #LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe

The big idea: For writers (you) to write based on the life experiences and belief system that has shaped the outcome of their everyday life. It will be based on lessons they have gleaned from life. I believe that in doing this, in sharing our lessons with the world, others can learn from our stories or find inspiration to take stock of their own lessons.

What can you write about?  Anything.

It can be something you are passionate about or something you regret…

It can be good or bad or funny or ugly

Anything at all

Here are some sample topics below:

#LessonLifeHasTaughtMe – Beauty is not vain.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Music is Life

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Marriage is not the ultimate goal in Life.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – God is real.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Technology is the new high.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Garri and Beans is overrated.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – To be stupid is not stupid.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Family is everything.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Suicide is the easy way out.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Failure does not define me.

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Integrity is King

#LessonsLifeHasTaughtMe – Hard work is relative.


This list is non-exhaustive so you can choose anything you want to write about.

So, Dive in and start sharing what #LessonsLifeHasTaught – You!.

I will deeply appreciate if you could be a part of this.

If yes, please email me at ekpenyongcaleb@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Deadline for submission is 3rd of August, 2017. After which one article per day will be published for #30 days.
