I was on the phone at midnight when my friend told me it was raining very heavily, the first rain of the year in his city. I looked at the clock and it was a few minutes past midnight, a few minutes into March, my birth month, and a smile spread across my face!
I know it might sound like a load of crap but it's ok, I speak what I want, and ridiculous, illogical or farfetched as it might sound, I believe that what I want comes to me. So I told him the heavy rains are a sign of how blessed and bountiful my month is going to be. I'm going to be hit all around with blessings, showered with love, gifted with grace and followed by favour. (Well not just this month, but year round).
So that's how it's going to be for me, just putting it out there. #HelloUniverse!
Meanwhile, in case you didn't know, my birthday is on the 16th... But I'm already accepting gifts, so hey you don't have to wait, start now. Haha!
I'm not sure what my birthday plans are yet, it's on a Wednesday so it's likely to be pretty lowkey and it's unlikely I'd be in Lagos. But wherever I am I'm certain it's going to be special.
...Does it bug you how fast the year is running? Guys, wasn't it just yesterday we celebrated Christmas and new year and made all those lofty plans and resolutions? I hope you're realized a few of those btw.
Anyhoo, I'm just super stoked this morning! I've never been excited about birthdays so I'm not sure that's why. Maybe it's because it's raining right now, some relief from this sweltering lagos heat, maybe it's because I'm getting older (weird, right? Well I'm just so grateful to be alive), maybe it's because I'm full of expectation, maybe because each day I get closer to my goals, or maybe I'm simply grateful for everything.
Any other March babies in the house?
Happy new month guys, may your March be everything you wish it to be.
