I clock 31 today and I cant help but think back at the last 30 years of my life.
i feel super grateful and I’ve developed a habit where every year, i take beautiful pictures and feel good about myself. (I’m not sure how or why I started this, but it gives me joy and I’m making a habit of whatever brings me joy).
In the first ten years of my life, I really do not remember much, except that my parents held the wheels and gave me a solid foundation in the best way they could afford.
in my second decade, by age 13, i started getting curious about a lot of things, still this decade was mostly influenced by my parents. i made a few decisions here and there but you know how it is as an african child (winks!)
By age 20, every decision was mine. I was already in the university and lived in a city really far from home so I could afford to do whatever I wanted. (Thank God for my foundations, I didnt stray too far off)
I got married in this decade, had kids, left my home country to a faraway land which is home now and started my fashion career too. very intense. this has been my most significant decade.
Now, I’m in my 30s. (I’m blushing) it’s all about fulfilment, I’m going to be very intentional with my life. I’m thankful for the first 30 years of my life, as i have evolved into a phenomenal woman that I am very proud of. I look forward to all the amazing blessings to come this decade and most importantly, I have my cup stretched out to heaven, for that is the source of every blessing.
Cheers to a blessed year and decade, Happy birthday to me!
Peace, love and hugs
