Success without a struggle?


These past few weeks I have been reading a lot about life’s journey; our individual story and its unique plot. Let’s stop and think for a minute about a good story. It has a beginning, middle and end. Conflict. Whether all the conflict gets resolved is debateable. Physical conflict may be resolved but the lead character may still have some internal demons and issues.

What draws us into the story? The struggle right? Growing and addressing issues with the characters makes them relatable #real. So why in life do we get surprised and ‘put off’ life when God is crafting just as good a story with our lives? Why don’t we want to be real and relateable with our struggles. The road to our individual successes is an interesting and challenging one.

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: My literature blog: NMx
