Year 27 came with praises, optimism and a reminder that I deserve a place in this world.
It’s my birthday today and I honestly did not plan to do a post. But I woke up this morning with Wizkid’s “What you wanna do” song in my head which was just so weird. I’m taking it that year 27 is the year I celebrate. This is also the first year prayers came easy for me. It was a prayer of praises to God for taking me through year 26. Last year, I had a panic attack on my birthday eve and was so scared. It was as if my body knew that was our last normal week in 2020 LOL.
Living life softly, working hard (as usual), enjoying the presence of friends and family (because life is so short), being in love and just working towards my goals. Last year, I was under a lot of pressure physically and mentally which led to my body breaking down. Now I know that life happens regardless of what we do so there is really nothing than to take it easy and trust the process.
This life na one ooo, God no go shame us. My health issues really gave me a wake-up call in December. I really can’t be stressing myself on things I cannot control. Even God said we should cast all our worries on Him and He will give me rest so who am I not to obey?
Sometime last week, I decided to have a shoot. I was discouraged because of my Instagram account that I lost. Then I realized that I should not let that affect my life so much, it’s painful but we move. So I reached out to my favorite photographer Seun (he is honestly the best guy). Luckily, one of my girls from high school reached out to do my makeup so we had a complete team! I only have good things to say about her work. I didn’t even look at the mirror throughout, she was fast and got my face perfectly.
I am really so grateful that God always raises helpers when I least expect it. Anyway, I channeled my inner Rihanna and recreated one of her Vogue covers for this shoot. Did I try? Say a prayer for the birthday girl today. Year 27, let’s go!
