About (2019)


You probably already know who I am one way or the other, that’s why you are here. Welcome, and thank you for stopping by. For the first timers let me do a quick introduction, my name is OmoobaJesu Adetunji, but you can call me Omooba (meaning Princess, you can call me that too if you like). I am student doctor who enjoys good music, bible study, good food, good books, good movies and good times with family and friends. I like to believe I am funny.

For a long time I’ve known I’m pretty good at writing, and even though I dare say that now I haven’t always been as confident about this skill/gifting. I’ve always felt less than and incompetent to carry the writer tag and much less carry it all on my own. Hence why times when I thought to start something, like MisfitBants in 2016 or Elevate in 2017, I always did it with a bunch of people so that in some way I wouldn’t be the centre of attention, even when I ran personal blogs on WordPress, I often detached myself from the stuff I posted there; most times using pennames. I couldn’t imagine taking on the full responsibility (+ glory) for the things I put out.

That Marianne Williamson quote from Akeelah and the Bee articulates it all so well;

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are capable beyond measure. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually who are you not to be? We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people the ability to do the same.

I am capable and I guess that can be quite scary to come to terms but now that I have so entirely come to terms with all my wondrous capabilities, I am unashamed to let myself be.

This year (2019) I’m deciding to own who I am and take myself seriously. I have put my money (more like all my money/savings lol) where my mouth is, so trust me when I say I’m here to stay and for serious business. For some people that have been following my writing from the very beginning I want to take a moment and say thank you! Thank you for putting up with me and looking for me on social media and checking on me and sending me books and giving me feedback. I don’t deserve you all, but I am immensely grateful to God for you. You’ve shown me grace and love when I was needing. God bless you always.

Welcome again to my little apartment on the internet, it’s a pleasure to have you here. Most of what you will find here will revolve around God, medical school and God haha, because that’s pretty much what my life is about right now. Put on your seat beats though, it’s going to be quite a ride.

I would have asked you to drop your email, but let’s keep it all simple in the meantime. Stop by anytime you feel like, you’re always welcome. Just know that if you ever feeling alone, discouraged, helpless, lost, you can always come here. There will always be something here to encourage you, I promise.

Love & love –O

Spread the love
