Life isn’t always about winning | learn to accept your failures..

Hi y’all!! How’re you doing ? I really hope you’re fine. If you’re not, please remember that there’s always light at the end of a tunnel. Also, you can reach out to me and we’ll talk about it🤗

Alright, so how am I doing? I’m doing really okay, although I’m a little bit frustrated because my “girlfriend” is going through so much stuff right now and she’s not letting me in. I totally understand but I can’t help my worrying. Okay okay, TMI already, let’s get into today’s post.

So, today I just want to motivate you and provide you with comfort. So hopefully after reading today’s post, you feel motivated, gingered, and comforted.

So, one thing about so many people(maybe all of us) is that we expect to win at everything all the time. Not gonna lie, this used to be me before but I’ve learned now and I want y’all to learn as well. I’m sure you’ve heard that life’s all about ups and downs so many times before. Yeah but we don’t acknowledge it. We fail to understand that life was not designed for us to be winners all the time. In fact, life was designed for us to fail so many times. Believe or not, it’s so true🙃

From every failure comes a lesson. It’s now up to us to acknowledge it. Don’t get me wrong, please always be optimistic and be very positive in every situation but you still need to always prepare yourself for the worst and that’s where we all fail at. We forget that we’re not always winners and that’s completely okay. No matter what kind of life you live, you’ll have good times and bad times. We really all need to do better with acknowledging this.

Don’t blind your eyes and ignore the fact that something won’t always go as you expect. There are sometimes when we are extremely positive and we have so much faith in God and things will still go wrong. Trust me, this is God telling you that it’s not yet time, Him telling you that keep trusting me, I have a plan. Yes, God wants you to win always but God will also throw some failures in your way because He knows His plans for you and God knows best!

A lot of us are always so devastated when we experience failures and this is because we don’t prepare ourselves for it. See, once you accept and acknowledge the fact that life isn’t all about winning, you gain more insight into God’s plan for your life and you also react better to failure(s). Sometimes failure comes and it destroys us all because we aren’t prepared for it. When you are prepared to accept failure, because it’s a part of life, the damage of the failure won’t really affect you that much. Yes, it’s true.

Moral of my story is that we should all learn to accept the fact that we will experience some failures in this life and honestly these failures might not be representative of you as a person, they might be all part of God’s plans for your life. Experiencing failure doesn’t mean you’re a failure yourself, it just means that you’re human. What you now do is learn from that failure and let it motivate you and push you to always try to be the best version of yourself:)

One more thing, sometimes we plan and prepare so much for an amazing outcome but we are greeted with failure. This feeling has got to be one of the worst things in the world. Yea!! but don’t let your failure determine who you are and what you’re worth. Learn to accept that not every time would you be met with a good outcome. Once you learn to accept that failures are a part of life, you would be a stronger person with a growth mindset and you’ll be blessed with strength to face your worst days and all the bad outcomes of your life.

Whenever you face failures, always be very kind to yourself. Your failure doesn’t mean you’re a failure. Please still treat yourself with kindness, no matter what!!

So, someone said this to me , “But you know uncertainties still confront you even when you try to believe God can surpass your fears” Yes, those failures will bring you down and break you down, and it’s completely okay to grieve and even break down but that’s where FAITH comes in. This is where your faith is tested and it’s where your faith in God has to be very strong. So on days when your failures or uncertainties drag you down, your faith will drag you back up. That’s the amazing thing about living a life with God. He gives you strength when you’re weak and He fills you with hope. God is good y’all!!

That’s it for today. I hope you were comforted and motivated. I also pray that God will fill you with hope and give you strength to face any failures and the grace to get back up from your failures in Jesus name. Amen!!

The different photoediting apps I use to create “amazing” pictures

Hi y’all! How are y’all doing? I really hope you are doing fine. For me, I’ve been alright. There’s nothing major going on in my life at the moment. We just thank God for life. Okay okay, let’s move on:)

So, I am a photo editor as well. I edit different kinds of photos for different people and also for myself. I edit pictures to make them look better or to fit into a certain kind of aesthetic. To be honest, photo editing really is not easy but I love doing it, so I don’t find it that stressful. Anyway, let’s get into the different photoediting apps I use to create my amazing pictures.

1. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom( Lightroom in short)

This is really one of the best apps for photoediting. I use this app the most because it lets me do a lot of stuff and it is also pretty easy to use. I use Lightroom to create presets. Presets are a way of saving certain editing styles and adjustments so that you can use them on other pictures. Presets also make your photoediting work easier. For me, I think Lightroom is the best app to use to create presets. I use Lightroom to edit different kinds of pictures and I love that it also has many different editing tools. In short, you can do a lot to your picture or photo with Lightroom.

2.VSCO

I really love VSCO; it’s one of my go-to apps for photoediting. I use it to create subtle edits and they come out really nice. VSCO is another app that is amazing to use for photoediting. VSCO is really easy to use and you can edit your photos really fast with it. A lot of people use VSCO and this just even tells you that it is really good. VSCO is really good for creating gentle edits and aesthetically pleasing pictures. You can also copy your edits from one picture and paste them on another picture on VSCO. In short, VSCO is bae and the different tools on there will make your pictures look really nice.

3. PicsArt

This is one of the most used photoediting apps. PicsArt was actually the first photediting app I used and tried. PicsArt has a lot of stuff; it is like a whole package. There are so many editing tools on PicsArt to use to create different types of edits on your picture or photo. With PicsArt, you would never be bored because it has variety; different types of ways to edit just one picture. PicsArt is pretty easy to use and if you are just starting out with photoediting, I totally recommend PicsArt.

4. Snapseed

Someone recently told me about Snapseed and I really love it so far. To be honest, Snapseed really isn’t easy to use but as you keep using it, it gets easier to use. On Snapseed, there are also so many editing tools that allow you to create wonders with your pictures or photos. With Snapseed, you can create subtle or aggressive edits and it has even more tools than most photoediting apps. Snapseed is very common in the photoediting world because of how good and effective it is. If you want to try out a new photoediting app, I recommend trying out Snapseed.

5. Prequel

I don’t really use Prequel because I use the aforementioned apps mostly. However, Prequel is really good for editing photos too. On Prequel, you have so many options; so many ways to edit your pictures. With Prequel, you can edit one picture so many ways and it will still look really nice(well, if you know what you are doing). If you are someone who likes to have different options, then you need to have Prequel. Prequel is easy to use as well. I totally recommend Prequel to y’all for photoediting.


That’s all for today y’all. By the way, these are not only the apps I use for photoediting. I use a lot of apps but these are just some of the apps. Most of these apps are really easy to use, you just need to find the one that you really like and works for you best. If y’all didn’t already know, I also do videoediting, so I might write a blogpost on that soon.

Five different free apps that will make school so much easier for you..

Hello people! How are you doing? How is life going for y’all? I really hope everything is okay with y’all. For me, I have been pretty good. I have just been working so much harder, so as to do well in everything I am involved in. School just started and I am pretty excited because I really just want it to be over already. I have also been exercising patience in everything I am doing and I am also trusting God with everything. That is all about me, let’s get into today’s post.

If you are not sure how today’s post fits into what this blog is about, this post is a life tip. Life tips is one of the things that I will be writing about in this blog, just in case y’all did not already know. I think this blogpost is going to be really helpful, especially since school just started. For real now, let’s get into today’s post.

1. Quizlet

Quizlet is one app that I use every time for school. One of the really amazing things about Quizlet is that it can be used for almost all subjects/classes. Quizlet can be used to study or it can be used to do your homework. A lot of people use Quizlet already, so there are different things on there; like different questions and answers for different subjects, definitions of key words, and many more. Quizlet has really helped me with almost all of my homework. As a student, Quizlet is an app that is very very useful for you but you have to be careful on there, so as to not get wrong information. Although most of the things there are correct and true, some things there need to be crosschecked. In all, if you are finding it very difficult to do your assignments or to understand what you are learning in school, check out Quizlet .

2. Google Translate app

This app is a must have if you are taking a foreign language class. I can’t even count how many times I have used this app to translate different texts, passages, and readings for my Spanish class. This is the app that has helped me to do really well in all my Spanish assignments. With this free app, you can translate different languages in different ways. You can take a picture of the reading or passage you want to translate, amongst many other ways and this app translates correctly. With this app, you will be acing all your foreign language class assignments. Just try this app and you will never delete it from your phone or computer.

3. Khan Academy

Khan Academy is probably the best that would be on my list and I am sure that a lot of students who already use this free app would affirm to this. Khan Academy is literally a life saver because you can use it for everything school related. You can use it to study for different exams, you can use it to study for your different classes/subjects, you can use it to prepare for a class that you are going to take in the future. You can use it to do your homework, you can use it to learn keywords for your different classes, and so much more. I really think Khan Academy is a necessity for every student because of how helpful it is. If you are struggling with a class, or you just need help preparing for exams, you need to download Khan Academy on your phone or computer right now. The only thing is that it is not available on Google Play but you can go to their website at khanacademy.org to use it.

4.Socratic

Ever since I found Socratic, I have been using it for a lot of my homework. Socratic is very helpful with doing your homework. Socratic allows you to take a picture or type in your assignment questions, and it shows you different websites that relate to the assignment question and can help you to answer the question. Socratic does not give you a particular answer to your questions but it helps you a lot in finding answers to your homework questions. I also think that students should have this app on their computers or phones because it helps you to see different ways to answer your assignment questions and it just is very very helpful no matter what grade you are in.

5. Kahoot

Kahoot is a great app for learning different things. Kahoot is also a really great app for studying and reviewing your notes. You can use Kahoot for different subjects/classes. An advantage of Kahoot is that it is very very easy to use, so you can quickly use it to review your notes before a test or an exam. Kahoot lets you create questions for different topics, so you can go over your notes this way. Kahoot is not totally free but most of the things on there are free. If you need help or are struggling with preparing for your exams or studying your notes, Kahoot would be really good for you.


In all, there are so much more free apps to use for school. I did not include note-taking apps here but you can research on that because there are a lot of free and nice note-taking apps. There are also other apps for studying and doing your homework, you just need to research and see what works best for you. Also, there are different websites that can help, maybe I will write a blogpost on this but in the mean time, you can do some research by yourself.

Three ways to stay productive as school starts again…

Hi people! How are you doing? How has your week been? If you haven’t already noticed, I made some changes to this blog. I know, I am always making changes:) It is all for the best anyway. I changed the name of this blog and I also changed the theme and that’s all. Anyway, my week has been okay so far. I have been very productive this week and I really thank God for that. In this blog post, I will be sharing three of my secrets to being productive with y’all. Stay on and keep reading!

Honestly, I really understand how being productive can be very difficult sometimes but no worries because we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Sometimes, we get very lazy or we just procrastinate everything we need to do out of habit. I hope these tips will help you to be more productive.

First, write a list of everything you have to do for the day( make a to-do list basically)

I know you’ve probably heard this one million times. I get it but the reason why it is being repeated every time is because it is actually really helpful. When you make a list of all the things you have to do, it motivates you to really do those things. You also remember that there are some things you need to do. There are some things you need to achieve. This moves you to get moving and start working. Also, the thing about making a to-do list is that, when you don’t do the things on that list, it makes you feel guilt. You feel guilty that you did not do what you were supposed to do. Y’all just really need to try it first. Just give it a trial and you’ll see that it is actually very helpful.

Second, keep your phone away from you for some time

This one works for me a lot and I am sure, it will work for you too. I know that our phones is one major reason why we never do the things we are supposed to do. The phone is a really big distraction and if you do not try to keep it away from you sometimes, I am afraid you’ll never get anything done. One thing I also know is that most of us are really addicted to our phones and we are worried about how we would keep it away from us. Don’t worry, you can definitely do it if I can do it. I can almost say that I am addicted to my phone as well but whenever I want to work or have work to do, I always make sure to put my phone where I cannot reach it. This has helped me to get a ton of work done. This method is so helpful, just give it a trial.

Lastly, think of your future and the dreams you badly want to achieve

This one is probably the best because it really motivates you to get up and do something. Please note that I am not telling y’all to start worrying too much about the future or start panicking, just put it all in God’s hand. What I am saying is that whenever you get lazy or start to procrastinate, just think of where you want to be in the future. This pushes you to start working and be productive because it helps you realize that in order to have that amazing future you desire, you have to work hard. Without hard work, you won’t achieve what you want. So, thinking of those dreams that you badly want to achieve moves you to be hard working. Just try it out and I know y’all will come back to give testimonies.

One last thing I want to mention is that you should always put God first in everything you do. Before carrying out any of these steps, make sure that you’ve already communicated with God first. God gives us guidance, so He helps us deal with any issues we have. He also has the answers to all our problems, hence why it is very important to always go to Him first.

I really hope y’all try out these things I have told y’all and I really hope it works for all of you. Thanks for reading! Bye:)
