Back in Lagos

"Are you Kitten me right Meow", I'm on an Okada! As a cool kid you know B-)
But don't you just love my top?
Are you Kitten me right Meow?
I've been back in Lagos for over a month now and I took these pictures the 1st week I got in so this post is long over due. 
Forever 21 top, River Island pants, Zara sunglasses (I LOVE)
Lots more after the cut :)
I thought it would be tough moving back so I made sure I was ready to take on the Las Gidi life.
Las Gidi aka Lagos
The traffic, the headache, some of the people... My goodness it can be tough but still I thank God. Lol. There's aaaaaaalways something to be thankful for! Coming home from work and seeing all sorts of accidents and lifeless bodies, the recent plane crash that claimed about 14 lives (may their souls rest in peace, Amen), and not once have I had an accident or a case of someone stealing from me or my car in traffic! It's only God to be honest.
It's been fun being back home with the people I love the most, my family. Friends come and go and some even become as close as family, but nothing compares to the family God's given you especially when you are friends with them. Family by Chance, Friends by Choice. You have to love them but it is your choice to love who they are and want to be their friend. Speaking of family, I've got a new nephew! His name is Efe, he's the cutest and I thank God for him and the rest of my fambam.
Back to the matter, it's been great, it's been fun, I honestly don't want to go back to the UK but I will in a year. NYSC on my mind first and I'm still working so that's been taking most of my time but I must say I am enjoying it. I never really notice how tired I am until I leave the office/factory and everyone's said that's a sign that I'm having the time of my life Lol. There's nothing as good as doing what you love or what you know God has designed you to do, it's really a blessing honestly cuz not a lot of people can really do what they love. They are existing and just going on with life without enjoying it and living the life they really want to. Then again it takes the grace of God for one to take that bold step to venture into what it is you really want to do and sometimes it's very risky. But at the end of the day it's all a matter of Faith, Consistency and Hard Work
No one is saying you should leave your job if you are not sure what the future holds. Don't do something because you want to "hammer" and make millions or because you see everyone doing it and making money out of it, find your niche and meet a need. Most billionaires today started out doing what they loved and what they had a passion for and eventually their passion brought in the billions. You need to know your passion and for this reason you have to be in tune with God to know His plans for you and your purpose here on earth. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that He knows the plans He has for us and they are of good and not evil. Once you figure that out everything else will fall into place once you put in those three things I mentioned earlier. In the end "all things work out together for the good of those who love The Lord" Romans 8:28 and you can take that to the bank!
