A drama telling a day in the life of a young fisherman who happens to make the biggest catch he has ever made in life with the help of his daughter. Continue reading “From Dawn till Dusk (A Radio Drama)”
The dreaded Sex Talk. The way people tiptoe around sex and anything sexual/sensual, you’d think it’s a landmine. Can we just stop already? Continue reading “Interactive post: How do you handle sexual desire as a single person?”
It’s been ages! Jeez!
I know the chasm I put between us has cost us a lot and even though I know you are tired of my apologies, I’ll still do it anyway. Continue reading ““Where Have You Been Jadesola?””
Wow! it feels so, so good to have ended the month of June on a very high note. Not like I started with a low points or something but I am just glad I found something that I did not even know I needed.
Over the last 30 days, I gladly participated in the Nathaniel Bassey #HallelujahChallenge on Instagram Live and I watched it grow from strength to strength. To think that some were criticizing the entire revival was totally baffling to me. There we were, worshiping with our hearts and someone even went as far as thinking it was a competition against Ramadan. I was so glad to see that that school of thought was shut down fast. Continue reading “My Name is Jadesola Odujole and I’m a Hallelujan!”
I can almost swear that I get some of my best ideas while riding in buses. I know it is weird but over time, it is what I have noticed (although The Bourgie Life was not born in a bus). This can definitely qualify as one of them.
Since this is my first post of the year, I say welcome to 2017. I have just one prayer for you – that you achieve everything you set out to achieve last year but could not, due to some reason or the other.
From the title of the post you can guess where I am headed – What exactly is your personal theme for 2017. Not the one they said at your watch night service or that your pastor declared but what are YOU saying (based on what you have heard from God) about your year.
Let me simplify this, for me apart from the fact that the churches (you read that right) I attend declared 2017 as the year of Undeniable Exploits, Manifesting God’s glory, pleasant surprises and Light & shining, I took out time to do a reset and ask God what he was saying to me about the year.
That is what 2017 is about for me. Simply put.
2017 is my year of Doing. No more sitting on my hands and going to conferences and coming back the same waiting for something, anything to happen to me. It is quite clear that if anything is to happen in/to my life, it is up to me by the power of the Holy Spirit.
That’s why I do not talk about how emotionally drained I “think” I am, I just do what I am led to do. That is why I started TheBourgieLife and by God’s grace, the end of the year will be better than the beginning for us. That is why I partnered with Tolulope Balogun of Travelotus to bring Lotus Tours, trust me guys, the next trip will blow your mind. That is why Kamari Luxe, our organic skincare company will not just grow, it will thrive.
I still have a number of things that he revealed to me that I will be doing and I know it will end in praise. Osheyyyy!
I implore you to find out what God wants you to do in the year 2017. Your personal word. That is all you need as an anchor for the times ahead because as they say, it will get worse before it gets better but then, we that wait upon the Lord shall have our stength renewed.
Now that you have come to the end of the article, don’t you think your friends should read this too? Why not share it with them as well!
Till next time.

What a Time to Be Alive!
The Year is ending and there is so much left undone. Your goals, your plans, your dreams, your aspirations, all that, just there. Where did the time go?
You watched everytime as each person started out on their dream or goal. Although, you were happy for them, you still asked yourself, When will it be my turn?
What are the things you can do to achieve some measure of happiness?
We are not even going deep, but how far can you go to ensure you go to bed at peace and wake up with a glow.
I’m on a journey to find true happiness and joy and at 23, I know I’m not even close to finding it yet.
