I just turned 28—the big two-eight. Can you believe it? 😢😭😭I want to cry because that means I’m close to 30 but I’m also excited because I believe this is my best year yet. As I write this I’m in hospital waiting to see the doctor because I had this weird stomach ache that was very uncomfortable. Being in hospital reminds me how much I need to be grateful for health. I have never being admitted to hospital, never had anything serious and all that I give God all the glory. During this period of Coronavirus, I am grateful that I am healthy and alive. I really don’t take it for granted.
It’s so crazy to me because I’ve always wondered where I would be in my life at this age. And I’m not where I thought I was going to be by now, at all but I am thankful that I am not where I was last year.
27 was an amazing year, I learned how to love the person in the mirror despite my flaws, I rededicated my life to God and that is the best decision I ever made. I am not perfect, I keep falling short but His Grace is sufficient. I went back to school which was a good decision, you have to keep being better than you were. I let go of anger that I had held on for so long its said holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. I learnt who’s in my circle and I’m grateful for that because now I really don’t question who’s in and who’s out. Learning that not everyone will be in my life forever makes it easy to let go. I also learnt that you really don’t have to make yourself small for other people to shine, be your biggest cheerleader, most times you are the only one in your corner.I learnt how to buy and build assets. We can all build assets, it’s just a matter of sacrifice. 27 taught me to not apologize for being me, it doesn’t help anyone at all. I am happy that I got to travel quite a lot last year and I hope to do that more often. I loved that I didn’t take myself too seriously, thank you TikTok for that ☺.
I am so proud of the woman you have become, never doubt how strong you are, you are an amazing mother, friend, sibling and daughter. You have come such a long way and I’m so proud of you. Look at the things you thought would kill you? Who’s laughing now? 💪. Continue seeking God and His kingdom, He promises everything else will be added to you. Never stop striving to be the best you can be, it shall all work out in the end. It always does.
So 28, here’s my hope for you. That you get to travel the world, get married (God’s plan), start a family 👪, for God to use you for His Glory, for Reign Events to be a household name, finally work in media, and continue being the best friend, parent and child I can ever be. Also let’s be on Forbes top 30 under 30 ☺. I have so much hope for you, I know God has amazing plans for you (Jeremiah 29:11), don’t give up on yourself yet.
I pray that you never settle, not in your relationships, not at your work not at anything in life, always be the best you can be. Remember the world never remembers people who settled. Be the best you can be and that’s how the world will remember your name. The best is yet to come.
Happy birthday love. I love you forever ♥
