As I celebrate another year in my life today.I remember where I come from. I remember the days of hopelessness and those doubts and also embarrassments. I remember thinking that it only happens to people who come from big houses. I thought good life and success is fixed for those who had better houses and good clothing.
As I celebrate my birthday today. I reflect on the journey I walked. I reflect on the days I thought of giving up. I reflect on those days when things didn’t make sense to me. I reflect on those days when rain comes I know I won’t be able to sleep because the blankets would be wet cos the shack got many holes on the roof and that can’t be fixed or closed . I reflect on walking barefoot every day. I reflect on sleeping on the floor with my siblings with no space.
As I celebrate another year in my life today. I see the power of God. I see the power of obeying your parents before the Lord. I see the power of humility. I see the power of humbleness. I see the power of faith, hope and PRAYER. I see the power of contentment. I see the power of patience.
As I celebrate my birthday today. I learned that accept who you are. I learned that don’t be ashamed of your family, household, shack, life or your background. I learned that no one cares about your feelings. I learned life doesn’t know the difference between rich and poverty it gives advantages to those who work hard and persist.
I learned that some people are toxic and they want to gain from your light. Learned life doesn’t owe anyone apology. I learned that in life we lose parents, siblings, friends, things that we love the most of that we thought we do. And I learned that even after losing those things God is still greater than any loss. He restores and gives life.
As I celebrate another in my life I genuinely and wholeheartedly like to thank each and everyone of you who supported my journey since day 1. People who voted for me to win all the awards I have today. People who bought tickets to my shows. Those who are rooting for me while I don’t know. Those who see me funny.
I LOVE YOU ALL. I APPRECIATE YOU.
