Do you smell the jollof rice already?? Christmas is upon us and all i’m doing is enjoy my life…no holding back on all my cravings! Time to eat, relax and play Santa Sarah! haha.
So I will go straight to the point on today’s post as i’m pretty sure we all got christmassy stuffs to do lol.
I have been asked by several people what i want for Christmas so i thought to dignify that question with a blog post. My Beloved family and friends, please I do not really want your gifts so keep it or give it to the needy, its the season of giving after all!
…So, in a world full of so many “Hypocrites” and “Fake well wishers”, all I want from you this Christmas is your “genuine support”. I’d rather have 10 people I can count on than 100 people faking it…
As an extrovert and a very open minded person, I have been lucky enough to build friendships with quite a bunch of people around the world, unfortunately this attribute comes with so many setbacks as I end up trusting people so much with the intent that they are just like me. Having made/still making sacrifices, rooted for friends/families and supported people in countless ways that cannot be measured, sadly in the real world sometimes the same people your were cheering for will not be the ones to cheer you when its your turn.
Suffice it to say that whatever good deeds or sacrifices made for family/friends has been with absolutely no expectation in return so it doesn’t take me by surprise when the people I expect the most to support me do not.
I started my blog exactly 2 months ago from today, It’s been such an eye opener seeing how I literally have to plead with some friends to support me. Little things that I took for granted now serve as lessons to me that people will only support & encourage you when they have something to gain from you!!!
This post is not a call out to anyone as I am also not perfect, but just a subtle reminder that we are all in this together…we will all succeed and WIN together provided we genuinely support each other in this thing called LIFE! So on that note, make that decision today to sincerely support me or any other person you know that is taking baby steps to pursue their dreams.
Breaking news is that even if you don’t encourage them, their destiny will still be fulfilled as nothing depends on you and your negative energy…😊.
Guys, as we wrap up the year, I urge you to be a better friend, cousin, parent, sister, spouse, colleague & brother. Let your smiles, prayers/wishes be real and your heart be joyful for others, spread love and openly support YOUR OWN! it cost NOTHING to celebrate people while they are alive rather than in death!
P/S Thank you to all those strangers around the 18 countries I see reading my blog post each week and supporting me…y’all are the real MVP!!! 💗
Cheers to a New Year ahead! And yes the winner of the free trip to Malaga, Spain will be announced on the 31st dec.
