I woke up this morning being thankful for the gift of life, the strength in my body and in my soul to achieve what I want and what I am capable of achieving.
Life has an incredible talent of throwing shades on your way and making you feel weak when you most need strength and vigour, but I thank the Almighty for making my hand strong in his name, for not making me commit to misery, because that is what I knew and it felt better that way, but for pulling me up to complete my exams. This past week has been incredibly challenging and I almost lost faith in making it, but now I realise there’s nothing thrown on my path that I can’t handle, it is there because I can do it, because I am here to fulfil something bigger and mightier that what my mind can even think of. I am thankful for my mother, for her incommensurable love and care, for giving me a helping hand even when I turn her down and for being my shield in this struggle for life. I am thankful for my dear friends, my friend Sheila for being always caring and supportive of what I do, my friend Ibe for the love one feels to reach out to another, my friend Ami for opening my eyes to see a Faith she herself is searching for when I am about to close them out of distress because she knows the power of the word in my life.
I hope to always be able to raise above and see the grace in what I have and be grateful for the gift of life and never fall into the distress of ingratitude for what is not meant to be mine.
I challenge you to not commit to misery because of the comfort and the knowledge you have in that field, but always see the possibility of a chance of redemption in all you do, no matter how small that may be.
