Tomorrow I turn 25 and I’m writing my birthday post today because tomorrow, I’m going to be in denial of the fact that I’m 25. I feel old(I know, silly) and I’m going to get my revenge on age by not acknowledging it (I know, even sillier. Lol).
But today I want to just soak in God’s faithfulness to me for the past 25 years. I mean, God has been really faithful. Especially on the road. I travel a lot and I never fly. The worst that has happened is my bus breaking down and me having to spend a day and two nights in the middle of nowhere. Wasn’t robbed or raped and I didn’t get any funny stories to tell except the ones that were actually funny.
I mean… This👇is gonna be me at midnight because I feel old but I am also grateful and thankful. Won’t be grooving to this Marissa song sha.
For the past 3 years, my birthday has been preceded by a week or two of intense, interstate travels. In 2017, I did Abia-Ondo-Oyo-Plateau-Abuja in 1 week. In 2018, I did Bauchi-Plateau-Ibadan-Abuja in a week. This year, I was supposed to do Abia-Plateau-Bauchi-Plateau-Abuja-Oyo in a week. However, I’m back from Bauchi and still in Plateau. And these are just the trips preceding my birthday, not counting all the many times I traveled throughout the year. No stories. Exhausting but great trips for different reasons and I always arrived safely. For me, I see God’s goodness so much when I’m on the road.
And it’s not just with the Ajala part of my life. It’s with health. I haven’t had a serious cold in months. Or any serious illness that would leave me weak or down. It’s with finances. This one is actually a story I can’t tell because I do not know how it happens. It’s with friendships and family. It’s with education. God has been faithful.
As I step into 25, I’m really looking forward to having my best year yet. 24 was good to me and I believe that greater things are in store for me.
This new year, I’m looking to trust God even more and have a better relationship with him. There is nothing like having a good relationship with God. I have been on both sides of the fence and I have sat on the fence, so I can tell you which one is truly better.
25 is going to see me start keeping my hair again. Hopefully it will see me start my Masters on a scholarship.
25 will see me get a job. Hopefully it will see me finally get comfortable enough to be in a relationship.
25 will see me do so many things. Hopefully it will see me mend some relationships that I lost in 24.
My colour for 25 is Mustard Yellow. I don’t know why but for the past 3 months, the colour has just been popping up everywhere. Even places where you would never see mustard yellow. I think it’s an omen of happiness and sunshine in my 25th year.😎
My songs for 25, in no particular order, are –
- Chasing the Sun, by my love, Sara Bareilles
- Chioma by Frank Edward
- Unto the King by Frank Edward ft. PITA
Please do find them and enjoy.
I read so many books in 24. I can’t begin to mention. Let me just say that my reading focus for the year was reading books that have been adapted to movies. I had fun with a lot of those.
The friends I made in 24, especially the ones from Bauchi! I feel so lucky to have met them. I lost some friends too but..
What does one do when they turn 25? I do not know how to act. My friend said I’ll have more sense 😂, whatever that means. Age is such a strange concept to me right now.
Enjoy your day!
