Author: SCD Health Advocate

I didn't choose this life, it chose me, and by the grace of God, I have and continue to live a full life with my blessing that is sickle cell (SCD). I love to praise, I love to worship, I love God and I'm in the best place when I'm in his presence. He preordained my life way before I was even thought of, I live a testimonial life that I want to share with the world.

Shame Has Caught Me

*strolls in slowly with feet dragging, head down in shame*

It is I, the prodigal girl, I’m back again but this time shame dragged me back to blogville ūüĎÄ lol. It’s actually sad that it has gotten to the point where people have to call me out and bet your bottom dollar that they have on multiple occasions but shame, yes same one that has now brought me back to write, once stopped me. What are we going to do about me eh ūüôą

Anyway! Like always, let’s act like nothing happened, jest pray for your girl.

2016! It’s here just like that. It was like film trick but we’re here. I’m more than blessed to see it like you, it’s something I must not take for granted. We ask that God will lead us right this new year, He’ll order our steps and bring everything we desire/ask to fruition.

I’m loving this year already, more than the fact that I am currently basking in the hot sun in Nigeria *sips cold chapman*
The amount of time I have gotten to spend with family most especially my little cousins, most of whom were born after my family left Nigeria, it has been great. They are HILARIOUS! My family members are all clowns and I have had so many moments of deep laughter and that enough makes me happy! Also, I have done things I never thought I will do, most recent and memorable one being climbing Idanre Hills. Yo that alone needs its own post, in fact that’s what I’ll do.

For now, cheers to an awesome 2016 and eventful, blessed year ahead. And to more posts! Amen.

Tis The Season To Reflect

I made a conscious decision to write today and I am sticking to that no matter what, considering the fact that I just deleted my post mistakenly before it could upload, SMH. E don tay but I have finally gotten to the point where I forgiven myself for letting that happen. Today though, I’m in a reflecting mode, taking stocks. Despite the horror and violent events that looks to have clouded our world, we must celebrate the good however little they might seem.

To be witnessing yet another month is a blessing in itself, but even more humbling that we’re so close to closing this year out. That alone makes you ask where did the time go?! For me, the year started off good but took a dive right after I came back from Nigeria, I experienced a traumatic event where I sustained permanent injuries then there was that time SC showed up to bring me that much lower, but that too passed. I went back to the work force this year, which in itself was an amazing experience, boy did God ever showed up massively.

I could go on and on, but I won’t. Here is to a great start to another end. To a dream chasing, dream fulfilled rest of the year, it’s not over so don’t give up on those things you wished for, keep faith alive. To a safe rest of the year, especially to those of us that may be planning to travel, no evil will find us, we will not be at the wrong place at the right time. And last but not least, to a peaceful festive season with family and friends.
