Day 27: The Happiness Challenge
I feel like sleeping in all day but I can’t. I have this meet up with some amazing people and I already gave them my word that I’ll be there. And you know promise is a debt, I have to go. My consolation is that I will be having meaningful conversation with intelligent people and I’ll be learning a lot.
I’d like us to be mushy again today. Notice how I always want us to reach out to friends and loved ones? I have read too many stories and seen too many instances of people who are going through life with the thought that nobody cares about them and this might in turn lead to depression. No, we don’t want our loved ones to be depressed so we have to show them. So, today, we are going to let people know how much we care about them. Show love, appreciation and all the emosh you can muster to a friend, family or lover, tell them you care!
You could say it in few words, you could write an epistle, just make it explicitly known that you care and would always ride for them. This is different from when we told them everything will be alright or tried to encourage them, this time, we are being a bit more personal by letting them know that we care a great deal about them and they are appreciated.
My friends will be getting plenty emotional messages from me today because see ehn, I think I’m good at those. Not just because I want to weave words together and sound poetic, but also because I actually do care about my friends, I care about them a great deal.
To my readers, you all have become family to me over these past days and I want you to know that I care greatly about you. I care about your happiness, I care about the things that bring joy to your soul, I care about the wishes you have in your heart and I pray they come to pass, I care about those comments you drop day in and out, I care about the notifications I get on my phone showing that someone has liked a post I put up, I care about the fact that you appreciate me enough to stick by me from day 1 of this challenge to now, Day 27. I care so much about you, my darlings. I want to be there for you whenever you need me and I hope we always have sincere reasons to be happy.
I think I can boldly say that I know some of the best Entrepreneurs in Nigeria and I don’t only know them, they are my friends too. I know some people might have heard of Love and Fashion or seen his works around, oh yes, I know who runs it and He is my friend! (errm my before before Sweetheart actually). He has always been that lover of fashion and he sure pays attention to details with his designs. Look at some designs from his collection, and oh yes, he is the model too!
I know you are waiting for me to say I have one of his designs and I won’t dissapoint you. He gifted me this very pretty shirt among other things.
He is giving a special design to one of our winners too. You may check him on Instagram (@loveandfashion01), Tell him you are from me, I’m sure he will do you well. Lol
I’ll be back. BOS
