Reading Time: 5 minutes It has long been a struggle for me to be honest about my shortcomings and failures. Whilst it is wise to have restrictions on what you share and to whom, it is dangerous to neglect your Christian community for the sake of keeping up appearances. I have been guilty of doing the latter far too often.
Reading Time: 5 minutes I never would have called myself an activist per se, but I have always strongly desired peace, stability and equality. But the truth is I care. I care enough to take a stand and therefore I am an activist.
Reading Time: 4 minutes Hello, I’m Paula Melissa. And I’m a recovering people-pleaser. I said No to an opportunity that I didn’t have the time, energy or particularly want to do today. And the earth didn’t open up and swallow me. For a recovering people pleaser like myself, that is a major accomplishment.
Reading Time: 4 minutes Gen Z is often referred to as the digital generation. Whilst this may seem like a very positive description because most of us are “gurus” within the field of technology, there are some significant disadvantages. Among these is the drastic decrease in reading among the younger population which can have an immense effect on us all in the future.
Reading Time: 2 minutes If you’ve been with my blog and I for a few years now, you’ll know I have a little obsession with being productive. And by little, I mean big. Huge. Gigantic. And another other synonyms you can think of.
Reading Time: 3 minutes But listen – and listen CAREFULLY – 2020 is still my year. Twenty twenty is still your year. It is still our year! It’s April. Until it is December 31st, there is still time to have a good year.
Reading Time: 5 minutes I’ve had multiple anxiety attacks over the last few days. I’m a little bit of a control freak so I don’t deal too well with uncertainty. With coronavirus (COVID-19), we are definitely in uncertain times. The great thing is it doesn’t end there. It ends like it begins, with GOD.
Reading Time: 3 minutes I spoke at Create Conference 2020 on Friday 21st February 2020 at Living Rock Church in Leicestershire, on the topic of Creating Visual, Written and Audio Content with a Gospel Message. YES I am so excited to shake the status quo and get invited in (and conquer) more of these kind of spaces.
Reading Time: 4 minutes This blog post is all about my first solo trip ever to Porto, Portugal and how I booked the entire trip via Airbnb. Here’s how it went and if I would recommend it.
Reading Time: 7 minutes How seriously do we take unity within the body of Christ? Are we guilty of holding steadfast to our interpretations of the truth rather than the Truth Himself? Are our friendship groups filled with people that agree with us at every point? Have we made idols out of our ideologies?
Reading Time: 7 minutes As we get to the end of 2019, I was reminiscing and I have noticed drastic changes in my diet and lifestyle. I think I am currently in my most happy, content place with my diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle so thought I would share some of the stuff I have learnt through my up-and-down continual battle with food and health.
Reading Time: < 1 minute It was a privilege to interview PR guru and Founder of Ariatu PR in London, Ronke Lawal (for the second time actually!) for the first (and only sadly!) episode of the New Narrative Magazine podcast. We discussed how Creatives can use social media as part of their personal branding and Ronke dropped so many amazing gems.
Reading Time: 4 minutes On Saturday 2nd November 2019, Premier Radio hosted the Premier Digital Awards. I was shortlisted, along with four other brilliant young bloggers. Huge thanks to Premier Digital for considering me! I am so grateful. This recognition means so much to me because it is a nod of approval to a platform in which so much of my youth-to-adulthood journey has been documented (hopefully for your entertainment and edification).
Reading Time: 2 minutes I used to mistake peace with everything in your life being okay, all of the time. If you require everything to always be working out for you, in order for you to have peace – that’s not peace.
