Day 5 : The Happiness Challenge

I’m actually in a car right ow on a road trip to Ibadan with a friend and I’m borrowing his laptop to do this, because my readers matter and I wouldn’t want to disappoint them. Okay I’m writing this second paragraph in our living  room because I could barely see the screen during the journey. The roads are so bad and it was a very rough journey. We spent a little over 5 hours from Lagos to Ibadan. Ridiculous right? I thought so too. Anyways, back to the challenge, Have you guys noticed how the theme for this week has been Appreciation? Yes, from Day 1 when we made a list of our blessings to day 2 when we appreciated our strengths to Day 3 when we appreciated our friends , then to Day 4 when we appreciated our parents. this is because of how important appreciation is and how i want us to imbibe it as a culture. Always be thankful for a host of things, and trust me, It will be beautiful. Today, we are going to appreciate our husbands/wives, fiances/Fiancees , lovers or future lovers.  I believe that a large percentage of us are either Christians or Muslims and I know how important the institution of marriage and procreation is in both religions. I also know that Good men are for Good women and through the grace of god, out heart desires are met by the Spouses provided for us. In a world where people are barely good to one another, it is imperative to point that one has to appreciate one’s lover, especially if he or she always strives to put  a smile on one’s face.Yes, they would sure have their flaws, just like we all do, but we have to appreciate them for how they don’t cease to try making us happy. Please send them a text or give them a call to show how much you cherish them being in your lives. Tell them how their mere existence and presence in your life wont be traded for anything and how you are glad you met them. Be mushy guys, Be very mushy.  Tolani is very romantic you know, Be like Tolani! For the single ones among us, it is a beautiful day to smile because you are certain that finishing touches are being put to deliver your perfection to you. Just make  a wish for the kind of person you want and say a prayer to that effect,you could drop comments to tell us what your wish is and we can pray for it together,  I’m certain that you would have wonderful testimonies soon. Pending that time, enjoy the freedom(lol) and soak yourself in the beauty of your own awesomeness. I’ll be back guys, let me suck momma’s breast a little. BOS

    Since I’ve been single since forever literally. I pray the one my heart’s been waiting for is worth the wait, that the one I love loves me even more and we compliment each other in shaa Allah🙏🏾

    I think of myself as romantic, I surprise him with gifts no matter how small it is, prepare delicacies for him and Alhamdulillah he appreciates it every time. Even though he isn’t as romantic as I want him to be, (we all know some men ain’t good in that area) but he tries, all I need to do is ask and it’s granted. He is making me a better person, a better Muslim. He isn’t perfect, no he is far from perfect, and so am I. I love his imperfections, and I know we can be better together if we try. He can also act silly at times, I would be sitting jeje and he would just come and pour water on someone looking for my trouble. And a lot of other pranks. I love him, and I pray he loves me more than I deserve. May Almighty Allah grow us in love and the strength to accept each other as we are. He is a wonderful man, may Allah be pleased with him always. Ameen. Looking forward to tomorrow’s challenge. I’m excited, tanku dear

    Praying for you wherever you are now and to Allah to grant my inner most prayers in shaa Allah.

    Alhamdulilah for blessing me with an amazing man, with whom I plan, hope and pray to spend the rest of my life with and be friends and lovers till Jannah bi qudratillah. I can’t wait to call him “husband” like the previous commenters…soon. I sent an appreciation message which was received and acknowledged with lots of love and prayers.

    P.S. I’m lowkey waiting for Shona and her Bibi.
