I woke up with my legs aching guys, I woke up tired and fatigued on Monday morning. Hmmm! Hope you all still remember I promised to share exclusive gist about my weekend? If you did not remember still read on with all enthusiasm and gusto.
My tiredness was as a result of a busy Friday, a restless Friday night and a quick travel to Leeds over the weekend which turned out to be a recipe for knackeredness if there is such a word. My people, a dear friend in whom I am well pleased decided to return to Nigeria from the UK for a reason I will mention much later in this gist and I and a few friends decided to plan a surprise party just so she knows she will be missed. She can’t just decide to stop paying taxes to the queen just like that and we will not make sure she misses us. She didn’t see it coming as I kept my cool and avoided her which was no mean feat. I guess she felt alone and abandoned by the people she called friends but i’m glad to know she felt different by the end of Saturday evening.
Anyways we the committee members (her close pals) made it happen. She was surprised to her bones that she cried all night and for hours Unended, but I refused to join the league, lol. I did the best I could do to cheer her up and stop her from crying, I let her know she still got me as a friend regardless how far we are from each other and I was a call or text away.
Guys, she traveled to get married oh. My friend is moving from the singles and content club to the association of married women. I am happy for her and I wish her well. I know she will make a good wife to her husband and vice versa.
Her decision to leave the UK was not the easiest decision to make as she had built a family here, it was quite hard accepting and coming to terms with the decision she had made. Given that the Nigerian economy is not a bed of roses at the moment it felt like she was not making the right choice and I hoped this would have discouraged her from leaving. Right now the rich in Nigeria are crying like the soup opera we saw in those days ‘the rich also Cry’.
Amidst all, my friend shines in all things as she makes difficult situations look undaunting. So the minute she told me she was ready to leave I was not scared for her at all. I usually pick out morals of the lesson from each situation. Lessons learned from this is, never ever be too scared of the unknown. That means asking how will I survive, how will I adjust, how this, and how that. Those precious moments used in debating in your heart, just say to yourself ‘ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR MY GOOD’. This, I tell you works.
So I am proud of my friend and can’t wait to visit Nigeria to see her again, and for all those who she directly or indirectly made impacts in their lives all I can say is take a cue and make more impacts in other people’s lives like she did.
In order not to bore you with this, I will like to place a kind and humble reminder for you all to read and comment on any of my recent posts(any post In July) as I will select winners at the end of July for the cash price.
I love you all and so have a lovely week ahead
