Looking Back...

Hello World,
Long time no write on here... lol...

I did mention that I'd be posting more on my other blog, so those of you following me there know that I've not been MIA. However, I chose to write on here today because, March 23rd marks 7 years since I had the car accident. I don't think I've ever said anything on the anniversary of that day but today, I felt the need to because I think that  I am FINALLY at a stage where I can fully say I celebrate March 23rd. It was the day before my Dad's birthday that I got in an accident that affected my spinal cord and left me to be in use of a wheelchair, so I generally always felt somewhat sad on March 23rd. BUT not no more! Shame on the devil.

Today I bless God for the gift of life and for all the wonderful things he's done for me.

This morning, I was drawn to go read this article I wrote for Bella Naija​. After reading it, I was inspired by what the me of back then wrote. I am forever THANKFUL to God for giving me another chance at life. It's amazing how much a near death experience can change us. I have been living a life full or purpose and meaning and God has truly been wonderful despite all the challenges of life.

As I said in that article I wrote, "Physical disability does not mean mental disability and it’s not a plague. That a person is disabled physically, does not make them less important or condemned". A BIG THANK YOU to everyone in my life that has never made me feel less of an human being. Thanks to friends and well wishers.

Today is not one for mushiness or tears because I celebrate my life. I am not writing this for any other reason than to remind us all (yes myself included) of this bible verse: 1st Corinthians 10:13 – “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it”.

It didn't look as though I'd ever get to a point where I talk about March 23rd with complete happiness, but here I am y'all. Today is March 23rd and I can happily think about how my amazing father is getting a year older tomorrow. I now declare March 23rd as my second birthday, because on that day 7 years ago, I was given another chance at a life full of purpose. I'm not where I want to be, and I know God is not done with me, but so far, I can say it's been GOOD! 

I look forward to everything else God has in store for me, and I want to tell the world... GET READY, GET READY, GET READY!!!!!!!
