2017 has been one of those years I started and really didn’t know what to expect out of it. I’m poor at following New Year resolutions, so I decided to go with the flow. Well, not for long, because I still had to make decisions and follow them.
Never in a million years would I have imagined myself engaged at my age. I always had this ‘plan’ where I would take my undergraduate, get a job, take my masters, work for another two years, and then settle down. Anyway, things took a different turn along the way because ultimately, it’s all in God’s plan.
It was two days after my birthday, and my boyfriend, (C), surprised me. We were living in different towns then, and he made a deliberate effort to come see me. Just before he went back, he tried hiding something from me. Being the curious person I am, I kept on wondering what it was. Well, it happened so fast, the next thing I remember is him asking me to be his wife. I had all these emotions at once, and to date, I think of that day and smile. It was one of the best days of my life, surreal.
A few months later, we realized we were better off as friends, rather than as a couple. We are now close friends and our relationship is stronger now. We support each other, and cheer each other on.
For a long time, I felt unfulfilled. Like I was not growing. In order to grow, I decided to move. I wanted to go to a place of more opportunities. It was a huge risk for me especially because I was leaving the comfort of my parent’s house to be alone. I was not going to be financially supported by my parents. (Not because they didn’t want to, but because they couldn’t). It was one of the risks I took, and so far, I don’t regret it. There are times I want to go back home, but I remember why I actually moved and how far I’ve come. It’s all I’ve needed to keep me going.
There was a point this year where I felt like nothing was working out for me. Nothing was going well for me. Looking back however, I realize just how God was positioning me for greater things.
Summing it all up
I made a few changes like cutting my hair to go all natural and dyeing it.
Then came the birth of my baby. This blog. I have expressed myself here and talked just about anything. I always knew I would run a blog, I just kept on pushing it. It took two very important people to push me.
I once posted about God’s intentionality, and I am an example of just how He positioned everything I went through. They were all lessons, leading to something big.
Thank you guys so much for your support this far. Your likes, comments, and inboxes keep me going. Great things are coming in 2018. Watch this space.
2018, we are ready!!!
