We are One!
If you’re Nigerian, did you get tempted to break into that song that says ‘We are one, we are the same, no matter where you come from we are one’. I mean that’s a good message behind that song, but that’s not the point.
The blog is one! Can you believe it? It feels so surreal. Not one year oh… One Month! *straight face*.
I know I know, you’ve rolled your eyes. Like only one month only and she’s jubilating.
But I’m learning to celebrate small successes. Every little step. Ok, maybe not with a huge cake, but just a little cupcake.
I know I promised here that I’ll keep blogging even if I had only one hypothetical reader. But you all definitely make it much more worth it.
As a Nigerian kid, growing up we’ll attend all these kid’s parties (especially one-year-old parties) and play lots of games, after which the MC (usually a clown with a multi-coloured wig and a red nose) will announce the winners. So acting as the MC Clown of this blog and in the spirit of celebrating firsts, I’ll like to call out the following people:
Don’t be shy, come and take your e-hug.
Once, as a member of a writing club in Uni, I complained to my roommate that I had writers’ block. She smirked and said ‘Who told who you are a writer’. I wrote an article on that, and that was the last I wrote as a member of that club.
So really, your encouragement is everything. Thank you. For reading, for sharing, for liking, for commenting.
Special Shout Out to Ike of PagesbyIke for being a strong supporter of this journey. It would not have happened without you. It’s her birthday guys. Check out her blog and wish her a happy birthday!
Maybe when the blog is one year, we can have an actual party. With a clown maybe? Yes? No?
Group Hug Everyone.
What small successes have you celebrated recently? Let us know!
Oh, and just some housekeeping stuff:

Why am I not being celebrated? Surely I should make this list somehow. You have offended the gods!

How shall we appease the gods?

The small success I recorded was getting my family to visit my blog for the first time after a year of doing it. It meant a lot to me. Not there yet but trudging on..*prayer posture

This your good juju just worked 😂😂. I stop by almost everyday to see if you have new posts and I don’t comment. But today, this juju worked… LolI’ve been hoping to celebrate a big success which is ‘getting lucrative employment’ in this foreign land I find myself. I almost got one after a rigorous hiring process but it slipped, was terribly broken. Took a while but I dusted myself and continued, was called up for another, phone interview was embarassingly short because I told the truth and I almost asked the recruiter, ‘would you have preferred if I lied? “. Anyway, I cried myself a river because I was really expecting something amazing to come out of that. Later that day, I found out ‘a perfectly structured and beautiful human being is growing in my tummy’. DH and I first went ‘ummph’, I had career goals not baby goals but then I remembered how being ungrateful can cost a major blessing.So that’s the little success I celebrate (ok I should be more grateful, It’s a big sucess and not a little one considering we weren’t even TTC)

A perfectly structured and beautiful human! That’s the biggest successes of them all!! Congratulations. Don’t worry about the job. It’ll come through soon. It’s really a difficult process in this ‘foreign land’ but it’ll come through. Thanks for always stopping by… *Now off to get some more good juju. Lol!! Xx

Well if ‘Thank you Jesus’ counts as a way of celebrating then yes! But there’s just so much I’m hopeful for right now. I need them to pull through so I can bust a move or two! 🙂 and yes to an actual party with clowns! hehehehehe X_X
