๐ŸŽต Guess who’s back, back again….๐ŸŽต

It feels good to be writing again. The last time I wrote on my blog was over a month ago and since that time, life has thrown me some curveballs that made me hit pause on my weekly Life as I go updates. Logging into my blog after a few weeks to write today felt very surreal and I realized how much I had missed this … writing and connecting.

Over the last few weeks, I have been reminded that life happens in twos – good/bad; faith/doubt; hope /despair ; happy/ sad … and whilst we would all rather choose the positives, the negatives sometimes hit us with equal measure and yes, it sucks.

Life is amazing. Even when it sucks, it is amazing, and we should be grateful for every moment.โ€ โ€“ Hal Elrod

I have also been reminded that the people in your life are your best assets. I had always known that you cannot place a price on people and learnt to approach all relationships with gratitude; but to know that people can literally save you – that was a new level of awareness. I am in awe of how people can make your sad days beautiful and whilst they may not be able to take away your pain, they definitely can soothe it. More than ever, I have a huge gratitude for the people in my life …. who build a bridge of support and hold my hand as I put one foot in front of the other.

Life may suck , but we all deserve people in our lives that make it suck less – Nifemi ๐Ÿ™‚

I am also extra thankful for people who have shared their stories with me. I have always been a firm believer in the power of sharing our stories and that they have the ability to cause monumental transformation for ourselves and others. I believe our stories connect us and remind us that we are not alone.

โ€œYour heartache is someone elseโ€™s hope. If you make it through, somebody else is going to make it through. Tell your story.โ€ โ€” Kim McManus

So today I am writing to remind you that you are here and that is all that matters.…and that when life throws you some curveballs, take a deep breath, chin up and put one foot in front of the other.

On a final note, even though the lyrics to the classic song “With a little help from my friends” I quoted in the title says “I get by with a little help from my friends” , I think there should be a remix that changes the little to a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

Wishing you a love-filled week.
