Officially out of the 5s and into the 6s!

As mentioned in my previous blog post, I hope you enjoy this special series of 10 episodes from my 25 days journey.

This day was exceptional because my Dad turned 60. We celebrated in style at his workplace. After cutting the cake, I gave him a birthday gift on behalf of all his children. You know what? The gift was something he actually wanted but was dissuaded from purchasing by his own boys. You see, my brothers are mischievous, hahaha!

Dad loved his gift and also enjoyed the celebration. It was a great honour to celebrate Dad’s birthday and witness all the good things that the Lord has done in his life. Like it’s sometimes said, 60 is the new 50. My dad is still very young and loves to live and have fun. Also during the celebrations, mum said “he just changed numbers and has moved from 5 to 6…59-60. Hence, more grace, blessing, accomplishments, battles etc. We trust God to continually fortify and strengthen him”.

After cutting the cake, popping champagne and opening his gift, we ate, drank and partied our way through the day.
To conclude, what a blessing this day was, and is forever stamped in my heart. Happy 60th bday Dad. May God continuously bless you always. We all love you!

Now stay tuned for the next episode of my 25 days adventure.

When the journey officially began!

What a wonderful 😊 flight I had. First time boarding Ethiopian airline and I can tell u that the service was impeccable. However, the flight was so long. Can you imagine flying for 13 hours non-stop? Hahah that was my fate, followed by a 6 hours flight to Cameroon with a stop in Gabon. It’s always fun to step foot in other countries, which I can now claim to have seen (although I just passed by during a layover, hahahah).
Hence, the joy of trying different airlines for every trip.

Although the service was impeccable, I had a bad (well maybe not so good) experience. You are probably wondering what happened! Unfortunately, I fainted during the flight and hurt my head and butt. As a result, I was very uncomfortable throughout the remainder of the flight.

The flight crew was very helpful and friendly, but I kept praying for us to land Asap. I can assure you that it wasn’t fun at all and I couldn’t wait to land. We finally landed in Cameroon after flying for 24 hours. Fun fun fun eh…

Now stay tuned for the next episode of my 25 days adventure.

It’s a new year!

If in 2017, our paths crossed, our paths diverged, or our paths merged, I am grateful.

It was a pleasure knowing you all in 2017 and I look forward to knowing you better in 2018.

For all those who supported me, my dreams, my family and my future I appreciate you. Our God will not forget your labour of love.

For all who believed, believe and will believe in my passion, mission and vision, I say thank you. You are the real MVPs.

I know and believe that this new year will be my (our) greatest and best year thus far, so let’s stay focus and true to ourselves, true to our beliefs, mission, passion and vision.

Stay blessed and keep soaring high. The sky isn’t the limit, so don’t let your thoughts limit you.

Cheers to increased success, love, peace, joy, grace, money, health, prosperity and much more ❤️!
Happy new year 2018!
Thank you note

The month of December!

A time of reflection
A time of evaluation;

A season of analysis
A season of synthesis;

A moment of truth
A moment of worth;

An opportunity to grow, so let’s not forget to blow.

A feeling of praise
A feeling of grace;

Let’s take the time to appreciate
Let’s take the time to celebrate;

Life is too short to worry
Life is to short to be weary;

So let’s pray for a better tomorrow with no more sorrow.

A simple definition of self!

I once heard it being said that the way you describe yourself either makes you or breaks you. Do you describe and define yourself with humility or with pride? By pride I am not referring to boasting, but joy and a sense of worth. A sense of worth, especially when thinking about what and how you have worked hard to achieve what you have and who you currently are.

When thinking about self-description, one other thing comes to my mind.
Do we describe ourselves based on what we have or who we are?
We always have to remember that we are human beings, mortal creatures who came into this world with nothing and will certainly leave with nothing.

So what is our identity? Is it within our titles? Our education? Our family status? Our environment? Our character? Our personality? Or our interior wellbeing?
Yes, definitely they all play a part in defining us as individuals.

Therefore, how will you describe yourself? I often like describing myself by my passion and lifestyle. For instance, a lover of nature, an Emcee, a helping hand and most of all a lover of all. Now, it’s your turn to say something. Describe yourself briefly…

Cheers and happy December!

The little things that make a difference!

Let me tell you a short and sweet story today.
On a faithful day, as I was heading to a BBQ, I received a call to go pick up a friend. I agreed and headed to pick up my friend. And guess what? Since I was tired of driving, my friend agreed to take on the wheel until we reached the BBQ’s location. But something extraordinary happened on our way to the BBQ. I received a text message from the host to stop by the grocery store and get some extra drinks and water, to which I agreed hesitatingly.

But you know what? God had planned it otherwise, because our stop at the grocery store was very fruitful.

As we were about to pack the car we ran into an old acquaintance; whom we hadn’t seen in a while. We greeted each other and headed our way. Some seconds later, she comes running towards us again stating that she had locked her car keys in the car. All frustrated and sad about her action, I looked at her and immediately asked my friend to assist her (as I recalled that my friend had previously been in a similar situation and managed to unlock the car). That being said, all 3 of us headed to the grocery store to pick up the items and back to the car. After picking up the items, the car was successfully unlocked. As soon as the car door got unlocked, she stared amazed with a grateful and joyful heart. At that very instant, I exclaimed that our meeting was indeed divinely ordained. Upon hearing that declaration, she brightened up even further and gave us hugs upon hugs.

The encounter made us realize that noting happens in vein, but all things happen for a purpose and are ordained. We laughed about it and thanked the Lord for the divine encounter. Finally, we headed our separate ways and considered the day to be a fruitful one.
