Day 9: The Happiness Challenge

I’ve been too tired to type anything. I’ve been looking at my screen for hours without actually coming up with a post. I’ve had this recurring headache and tiredness for about one week now and I think it’s about time I did something about it. I almost called in sick this morning but I remembered I manage the space and the repercussion won’t be pleasant. To worsen the case, Trump won guys, No, I’m not saying anything about that. We are still on the Happiness Challenge and Happy we will remain. The idea is looking at the positives regardless of whatever is happening anyways, hence, we uphold the positivity today and always. Today, we are giving out compliments, sincere ones o. Don’t just compliment someone because Omotolani said you should . Lol. Tell someone they are beautiful, comment about somebody’s beautiful style or demeanor, Tell a friend how smart she is, Appreciate someone’s kindness. Just hit someone up and compliment them about any positive attribute they have! You’d be amazed at how far this will go in making their day. Imagine someone just reaching across to tell you how amazing you are, or someone just finds a way to fuse into a discussion how much  better your beautiful smile makes them feel. I’ll always appreciate Jubril for how he compliments me all the time. He makes sure he tells me how impressed he is about my activities, how I write so well and how beautiful he thinks I am. These make me happy , no matter the mood I’m in when they come in and sincerely, Jubril is one friend I don’t ever want to lose.  This is to you Jay, I appreciate you a lot and your zeal is one thing that makes me very proud of you. Remember how you kept encouraging me to go back to Fashion school after I dropped out? To think you resumed learning it after me but look at how far you have come now. Your designs are so well cut and I am very happy for the headway you are making in the Fashion design world. You guys, Jubril runs Mr Jay Couture and he  is who you should contact for your Bespoke tailoring. He makes Agbada look so natural on its wearers and his formal wears aren’t anywhere near mediocre. Look at them for yourselves: 14322785_10153954468235745_2275237493414360672_n11781675_10153069131380745_874961216348023880_n14237520_10153935400905745_2641203800873330664_n14322183_10153935218555745_6965462548300744493_n13339439_10153698842925745_8633146615307040027_n13510823_10153738610630745_1602158288917978881_n13606722_10153758782315745_652927574692860231_n14192728_10153921846395745_6018757424986652529_n14222332_10153920353170745_3308377423069567907_n He made an outfit for me too and I also gifted someone with two amazing designs from his collection. Look at me: c360_2016-11-09-12-49-06-681c360_2016-11-09-12-49-54-383 His designs  are very affordable and he can help with styling you for your event. Check his website here and check him on Instagram and Facebook (@mrjay_couture). Oh, I almost forgot, He is giving a very nice bespoke top to one of our winners. I think I want that one too. Lol I’ll be back. BOS

    So my cheat has been reading from day 1 post via my email and I lazily just won’t press the link to the blog. My bad hope I’m pardoned. Today’s post is dedicated to my very special jay boy and I couldn’t help but drop a comment. Jay is sweet,homely,caring,intelligent,enterprising,responsible to mention a few. I remember subbing him as husband material once lol. Here’s me telling Jubril how special he is to me even if I hardly ever say it. And yea he was my chauffeur the first time ever I had physical contact with the amazing Omotolani. Jubril you remember that ride back home lol. Thank God we’ve seen more beautiful years . Cheers to a November filled with happiness.

    Since I’m just getting to read this at past midnight, suffice it to say there’s no one to be complimented at this hour. I’d just tell you “Omotolani” something I told you earlier this year here again, “I love the level of happiness you exude these days.” There’s this inner glow that just radiates effortlessly.

    • November 10, 2016

      Yaay it worked finally. Thanks my darling yummy mummy, I appreciate and cherish you a lot.

    Lovely design right there. Tolani, sorry if I haven’t been responding as often as I ought to. Proscrastination is no doubt a killer lol. Today’s challenge is an awesome one and funny enough I complemented my boss earlier today. He’s not on the big side. To top it all, lately he started visiting the gym, you can imagine the rest for yourself (oops hope I’m not deviating 😀). Anyway, it’s always a lovely gesture to complement people and it sure does go a long way.

    OmoTolani Ajike, as I fondly call you. I’ve known you to be a source of joy and happiness to many, and you just keep getting better at it. It’s unfortunate I’m just getting to repl this post, but I’m sure you know how it made me feel when I read it. I’ve shown several people, sent the link to a whole lot more to read. I’m so glad I followed you on twitter that very day in 2011; how I wish I remember the very day, I’d make sure I celebrate it every year, for your friendship since then has been of great positive influence to my life.

    I appreciate this post. I appreciate you. All of us at Mr JAY Couture say “thank you OmoTolani”.

    Stay cheerful. Keep touching lives positively.

    • November 14, 2016

      Awwn Thanks Jay, I’m glad you feel this way and I wish us many more years of beneficial friendship.
