A New Beginning

A New Beginning

I’m not quite sure of how to express how I feel right now, I mean, today is my birthday and everyone would expect me to feel ecstatic. Truth is the word ‘ecstatic’ does not define how I feel; I am not overjoyed, but I am immensely thankful for being alive. Despite the desperation, frustration, and disappointments that the economy and nature breeds, I am still standing. The fact that I am not where I ought to be sucks, but not lying 6ft deep in the soil gives a glimpse of hope, shows me I still have a lot to live for; I am a hot prospect for the future. Nonetheless, today is not about me, it is about US; we have come a long way and we deserve to be celebrated.

So, it’s my birthday and I am very calm, but before I start accepting your congratulatory messages I think we should reminisce together, examine few reasons why we should be thankful. In Africa, thousands die from hunger and poverty each day; no shelter and good health care. The world is in chaos; plane crashes, auto crashes, nature’s anger (flood, tornado, hurricane, etc.), bomb blasts, child abuse, terrorism, street violence, etc. Depression creeps in chameleonic nature to wreak havoc on our self-esteems, some of us have survived, while some lost the battle to suicide and others to mental disorder. If you are reading this, then you are not displaced, be thankful.

After spending some quality time with the Almighty I have decided to mark my birthday by celebrating my friends and family, the ones whose presence in my life comes with a great significance. My mother, who understands my shortcomings and scolds my excesses without ever giving up on me, thank you for being my pathway to earth, you are the best that can ever be. To my siblings, thank you for exercising patience with me, the wait will be worth it. My parents/guardians, the Fajemirokuns and the Bankoles, without your impart and impact I would not be man enough, I love you unconditionally. I would not be a writer if I had no readers, thank YOU for always sticking around, there will be no femifragile without you. My editors, Niyi Adekanmbi and Bunmi Shona, you are my elastic backbone, I appreciate you.

Distinctive shout out goes out to friends who have clothed my shame and concealed my inadequacies over the years, sometimes I feel like I am not worthy of them. Hotsauce, Kelvin, Calliface, DippyK, Lechero, and Pricktor, I love you guys #omo and #nohomo. I love my girlfriends with all my life, Titisoge, Wandysnow, Jay, Pest, Shughar, Faith, Stacy and Oluwashile. I cheat on them with one another but they always remain loyal, I love you all. To my big brothers, the stakeholders of OBF (One Big Family), Phellaz, Segzy, Omojava, Osas, Ebube, T Baba, Ope NB, Mr. Derrick, you guys are a huge source of inspiration, I see OBF becoming a billionaire club.

Tofunmi Akinseye, thank you for identifying the potential in me, Savvy Magazine is a vital lifeline to my writing career. Bloggers whose works influence me include Toperants, Elsie, Praise, Kombo, and Walter, you guys are awesome. My dance family has always been awesome, thanks fellas (D.M.I); it was a privilege to serve you and be served by you. To everyone I may have offended, I humbly beg for your apologies, I am so sorry. Dear future wife, I have not met you, yet I love you so much. To all my birthday mates, we rock.

This year, I choose to press forward in my pursuit of happiness, it is a new beginning. I will remain a fighter and a lover. I will get a girlfriend and make my momma happy. I will take your birthday wishes for me now (in the comment box) or via any of the social media platforms I operate on. Happy birthday… I love you all.
