I’m having an awesome moment right now!
I’m really thrilled and enthused about life right now..No, I didn’t get a promotion and I haven’t got my car yet or my fancy condo or stumbled unto some sweet molar deal. All it took to feel this estactic was to reminisce on my last 2 years and I just bursted out in praise and gratitude…when life hands us challenges and difficulties, its often hard to be of good cheer and recollect the seeming “little miracles” that has been delivered to you. Today, I stopped in my tracks to give thanks for an amazing last 2years.
As I began to fill my gratitude diary, I realized I had covered well over 3 pages. The more I wrote, the more I recollected.
I recalled the big moments and the small miracles and it just felt good to know even though I’m not where I want to be YET, I am certainly NOT where I used to be.
I have a lot to be thankful for so I’m not supplicating today just appreciating.
I am thankful for 134Elitz Magazine…even though I do not publish that magazine anymore, the doors that have opened to me as a result of that position have been mind blowing!
I am thankful for that night Tosin and I had no place to sleep, like we were BROKE BUSTED n HOMELESS we walked into a club and she uttered "i wish someone would just offer us a hotel now" Literally 2mins later, God brought a gentleman by the name of Bobby..he asked "Do you mind if i booked a hotel for you girls" hah!! Not only did we get a hotel, the offer came with meal and full tank of gas! and no, he didnt want anything..we havent seen him since then!
I am thankful for that moment I thought it was O-V-E-R for me on my way to Detroit with Nike and Tosin-Phew! That one defies human comprehension..verrry close call!
I am thankful for the instant bail out when I got an eviction notice on my door and literally hours later, God sent me rent for 4months!
I am thankful for when I had immigration complications and God once again came through for me. An immigration officer called me and said ‘Ehi, what do you want’..Blank cheque!!!!
