It's A New Year

2011 came and went by so fast. The last half of the year especially went by like a flash of lightening! At the beginning of 2011, I wrote down my goals for the year and by God's grace, I achieved almost everything. The only thing I didn't do was get a boyfriend/husband. I have given that one a special extension :-D

All in all, it was a very fulfilling year for me. A year of focus. A year devoid of emotional distractions, for the most part!

Spiritually though, I have to honestly confess that I went down the scale....thank God I have realised/identified that. That's the first step to making it better.

I thank God for the gift of life, for good health, for family, for friends, for favours that left me wide-eyed for months. Too much to thank Him for.

I spent Xmas and New Year with my family and took  3 days in between to attend a carnival. And I had sooooooo much fun! It was a good holiday, summarily.

Sometime in between my holiday, I ran into my ex-boyfriend. I hadn't seen him in over a year. We had a looooong discussion and I was all the happier for it. And all the while we were talking, I couldn't stop looking at him and wondering why l had loved him so much. And then it hit me - it was the way he loved me. There was something about the way he loved me. It was too special. Unfortunately, the love wasn't true because during the storms, a monster came out. I was happy to realise that I didn't love him anymore but that l'll always value what we had together and will always see it as a great lesson in love and life.

So, I'm back to my spinster's life. Hello Fuel Subsidy! You have been on my mind all week. The only times I didn't think of you, I was thinking of Boko Haram.

I have had so many discussions and arguments about the Govt's decision to remove fuel subsidy. Let me not start. I'll dedicate a full post to that.

Hello 2012, I pray you bring better days for Nigerians.
