Odu Reflection: When Helter Isn't Skelter

Posted by 'Funlayo on Wednesday, July 28, 2010, In : Reflection 

Ever feel like life is spinning out of control? At one moment or another, I think we all have and it’s not a good feeling. But sometimes, we need that spin out, that commotion, that… raw energy to take us out of our comfort zone, to make us take a good look at our current situation and to help us muster the courage to make necessary changes.

Quote for the Day: Your Deeds Speak
