I Am Who I Am.

Mid May already.........Time really does fly.

I had no plans of abandoning my "safe place" here for this, Life and some Very Demanding clients deemed it fit to take over my time and sleep......can I have a witness please(raise your right hand).
I took it upon myself to take my life back, and you should too!

Found myself reflecting over the weekend. I went to visit my childhood friend whom I hadn't seen in a while, and met another friend of ours there.

We all got chit chatting, weight, dress size, hair (I'm sure I'm the only girl in Lagos who hasn't bought into the whole brazillian/perusian/ mexican, shoes, weddings, etc......for some odd reason men weren't part of the discussion. Hehehehe

Apparently to them I am now a full fledged "
weirdo" why? Because I am undeniably "unsentimental" to things girls/ladies would normally care about. *shrug* Well, that's just who I am, and I Love me....(They still love me too, So.)

I have evolved........for the only reason that I was always meant to.

It's crazy the paths and people life let's you encounter, and we are all given a fair chance to make the best of it by making choices.
I've met the most amazing people in my tiny little world, and I'm glad I met them all...........the good, the bad and the ugly.

So I stumbled unto this note;

I tried to put myself in the unknown writers shoes.

God knows I've repeated this a thousand times in my head, but I also know I won't get it out right if I were to try and tell you how I really feel. (Either I forget some parts or ramble on)

We met. Became friend. Then Lovers. We laughed. We cried. We fought. We made wrong choices. We made right chioces from the wrong ones. We made Love......We decided " Us against the world"

Nothing's perfect. But we are perfect for each other :-)

Yes to the outside world, we look like quiet a pair ,because we share our joys, pains, pressure and tears together.

We have come a mighty long way from when we started out. We have grown in ways I didn't even imagine. We love "us" so much that we work so hard at keeping "us" together .....Our Love is like Old wine......better with each passing day

I get it when you say you look at yourself and you see me, because when I look at myself I see you too.

You are indeed my best friend.

And I wouldn't have it any other way.

3 simple word will never be enough to describe how I feel about you, but I will say them all the same.

I Love You.
(Thank You For Loving Me)

It made me feel warm and fuzzy inside......

Off to play catch up...........I've really missed this spot.

Adios Amigos!
