ASSYMETRIC OFF-SHOULDER DRESS X THREE (3) THINGS I AM THANKFUL FOR

What are you genuinely thankful for? I have learnt the more grateful we are, the more grace follows. What you appreciate in life appreciates, what if the only thing in your life tomorrow are the things you express gratitude for today? You may not be where you want to be in life, finances may not be in the right place, relationships maybe in shambles but you woke up today, so start your day by counting your blessings no matter how little because, what you deem meaningless might be someone else’s prayer.

In the spirit of thanksgiving there are a lot of things I am thankful for, however I am particular about these three(3) things listed below. Do check out Eleven things I'm Thankful for


FAMILY AND FRIENDS – I know it sounds cliché but truly what else do we have to be grateful for if friends and family do not come first. I am truly grateful for my family who has been with me through soft and hard moments and for the new group of friends I made during my service year. I speak a lot about friendship and rightful so, I appreciate my friends and new friends for their support and standing by my side. I could go on and on about each of them, how wonderful they complement me in various ways. Check out Get to know me through my Friends



HEALTH – I am thankful for health especially during this pandemic of COVID-19, despite me being up and about with work and life, I never caught the virus. It hit me middle of the year when I had a heart episode, called my Boss Madam and took a week to rest, I am really grateful to God the situation did not escalate and it was permanently contained. Health is wealth.


PROVISION – I do not think I can Emphasize more on this, if you have not experienced lack (and God forbid you do not) at some point you would not understand the important of constant provision in your household, being able to provide food, get water, pay the light bill, gas bill, school fees, rent bill etc in an economy that is depreciating as the year goes by. I am truly thankful for provision


Moving on to this look, remember when I mentioned on HERE I was gifted Ankara prints which I was yet to sew and style? Well, this is one of them, the picture didn’t really do justice to the outfit but it is indeed a beautiful print in reality. So, I used a different tailor for this style, she executed, however, I wished she did put more attention to details.


Talk to you in my next post, be you, be safe, be kind, stay blessed and remain humble.

  3. That quote is fabulous, and I couldn't agree more. We have so much in our life, and it's better to concentrate on that instead of what we don't have.
