2020 has opened my eyes to so many things, good and bad, regarding all facets of life. These are three I feel are the most positive to share.

Am I More Than A Disability?
I’ve been disabled for over seven years now. It’s been hard but it’s been amazing. Sometimes I feel like it’s all too much to handle, sometimes I feel like I might be the luckiest guy on the planet. Today I don’t feel so lucky. I know I have it quite good considering, I know thingsContinue reading “Am I More Than A Disability?”
The Boy With A Hole In His Chest
I’m not everyone’s cup of tea. Some people just prefer coffee I guess. But I have noticed a bit of a trend. A lot of people seem to like tea. My tea. I get told a lot about how I’m this and that, how people like me and how I make them happy… and IContinue reading “The Boy With A Hole In His Chest”
In Him I See Myself

We all have the power to create joy and happiness from nothing just byContinue reading “Musings: Love Is An Enigma”
You Are Awesome, Embrace It.
I am Ifeanyi Nwokoro and I am awesome. Why? I’ll tell you why. I am awesome because I am a young black man, born and bred in Lagos, Nigeria. I am a proud member of a loving family. I am the son of a great man and a wonderful woman. I am the brother, cousin,Continue reading “You Are Awesome, Embrace It.”
Family Over Everything
Family has always been arguably the most important part of my life and indeed every life. Not because it is the accepted “norm” to value ones family highly; not because I was raised in a Christian home; and definitely not because I feel I have, or indeed believe in the existence of, the ideal family.Continue reading “Family Over Everything”
I recently stumbled across this short piece containing some of my early thoughts soon after becoming disabled. I thought I’d share it as my emotions and thoughts were still quite raw at the time.
