About Me

Chatty, mischievous and evolving over with time. I am trying to make sense of everything around me and having loads of fun along the way! Oh, I want to be a better person along the way.

I believe.

It must be a good week for me to post twice!
The fuel situation is getting my goat literally. But I remain strong. I am running low but I should be thankful because several people do not have at all. It's the long queue inducing traffic that I hate. Plus the rain in Lagos. It is veeeerrrrrrryyyyyyy annoying.

How has your week been? Mine is still busy but I am sneaking off to blog and more. I am also hungry got to go eat.

A friend sent me this to lift up my spirits in these trying times. It helped. I hope you find it as inspiring as I did.

I Believe...
That just because two people argue,
it doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
it doesn't mean they do love each other.

I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends
if we understand that friends change.

I Believe...
That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.

I Believe...
That it's taking me a long time
to become the person I want to be.

I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones
with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe...
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe...
That we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done
when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I Believe...
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I Believe...
That my best friend and I,
can do anything,
or nothing and have the best time.

I Believe...
That sometimes the people you expect
to kick you when you're down,
will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry
I have the right to be angry,
but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe...
That maturity has more to do
with what types of experiences you've had
and what you've learned from them
and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe...
That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe...
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are,
but, we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager
to find out a secret.
It could change your life Forever.

I Believe...
Two people can look at
the exact same thing
and see something totally different.

I Believe...
That your life can be changed
in a matter of hours
by people who don't even know you.

I Believe...
That even when you think
you have no more to give,
when a friend cries out to you -
you will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
That credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe...
That you should send this
to all of the people that you believe in,
I just did.

I Believe...
The happiest of people
don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything.

Tomorrow is Friday! TGIF coming on. Enjoy the rest of the week people.

I strongly believe this.

The rain + fuel scarcity isnt a good combination in lagos.

Afrobabe said...

Yes, no matter how true friends are they will hurt you once in a while…most times unknowingly…But what makes you friends is your ability to forgive them and let it go...Have a lovely weekend..
