An inspirational audio collection of the book, The Journey of a Higher Life by Onyinye Etoniru.
As the year draws closer to its end, I decided to look back at my life and share some of the exciting and adventurous things I did in 2015 and the lessons I learnt. First of all, I want to deeply than God for an amazing and supernatural year. I feel very spoilt by God. Everyday has been a miracle day for me, like seriously. God is the reason I am alive and I am where I am today, It's all because of Him and of course a big thank you to YOU for reading my blog and supporting me. I appreciate plenty plenty. I'll leave you to enjoy my pic story.
CANOEING WITH FRIENDS
I had a really amazing time at PGL in UK. it was my first time canoeing, My friends and I didn't take any practical class on canoeing. But as usual, I was determined to paddle all the way. After few times trying to get the trick behind it. I finally got it and my canoe partner and I won most of the games we played with other teams , like canoe racing, catching the ball. It was all fun and laughter but also learnt a lot about team work and the fact that if you're really determined, you can learn anything you want.*smiles.
THE MASSAGE OF A LIFE TIME
I've been pretty busy this year. I've always wanted to have a massage, but never had the time to do it. One day, when I knew I couldn't take it any longer, because of the stress. I booked a physiotherapy session with a lady, Ify at home and took a day off.
My conversations with her
Me: Ouch, this is so painful, i thought it was supposed to be soothing
Ify: You have a lot of stress lumps, that's why. I'll have to massage it so it can dissolve.
Me: Shocked, i managed to reply ''I guess it's because I used to be an athlete.''
Ify: It's necessary to have massage often as it helps in reducing stress and aging symptoms, relaxing the muscles, helps you to be more active physically and keeps you healthy.
Me: Thanks. wow! didn't know that. I'll consider doing it often.
I was glad I finally took out time to do the massage, Though it was painful at first but rewarding as I felt lighter and better after few days.It's almost like part of my #Dare2do for the year. I'll like to recommend that you take out some time and try out a massage. You can call Ify on 07034550768 for a refreshing massage, treat yourself or a loved one. I learnt that it's important to take out time to take care of your health, you'll reap the benefits now and in the future.
THE WEDDING ROAD TRIP
I've always been in love with road trips. It was a refreshing time for me on a road trip from Lagos to Akure in Ondo state. Nigeria; as I travelled to grace my dearest friend's wedding -kester. I met a lot of amazing people from Germany and Nigeria whom I'm still friends with till today. Dorcas, Domain, Vicky, Toba, Emeka, Glory, Angela,Was-nee, Toba and others.
One thing, that really surprised me about my friend, was that on His wedding night, he brought together all his friends and we had discussions on how we could play a part in solving the issues in Nigeria and we shared & prayed to wrap up the day's activities. What he did, not only inspired me but really got me thinking about how many people would do that on their wedding day. I knew it was a very selfless act and I believe it's one of the attributes of any great person.It pays to be live a selfless life. *Lovely coupl
Hello great ones,
It's being a while I wrote on my personal blog not because I don't have a lot of awesome things to share with you but because I have been pretty busy with work and a few projects. Okay, before I go right in on the juice for today, I would like to wish you a really happy new month. This year has been one great year, I won't forget in a hurry and God has been awesomely faithful. From enjoying more of God's goodness to exploring new businesses, finding love, contributing to lives and celebrating the gift of truly living.
Remember last year, I started the #Dare2do challenge; you know how people get all worked up with not been able to fulfill some of their goals. So this challenge is really about giving peope the push, the motivation, joining hands with them to find the courage and confidence to stop thinking or dreaming but doing that one thing they've always wanted to do before the year runs out but they actually have till 25th of December to do that.
Here are some of the #Dare2do stories from last year.
Layi: "So I took up the challenge #dare2do, I never knew I could paint...but hey I did it! The feeling is totally awesome, you dont need to hire a painter, do it yourself. #dare2do #justdoit"
Chinenye: She started a #7dayslessons about her life and the year 2015 and completed it in the process inspired a lot of people with her write ups and received numerous comments and great feedback.
Ukey Mary: My #Dare2do Challenge
I've always been known as one 'omo tailor' that doesn't even know how to use a sewing machine. It's not that I'm not interested o, maybe it's just laziness. *covers face...
Well, thanks to all, if you that have always been on my neck, I'm finally coming out if my laziness. I made this 'simple dress' as you may see it MYSELF! Although momsy came to my aid, but I did it!
What inspired me? Onyinye Etoniru's #Dare2do Challenge!!! I saw the post on facebook and I decided to do it. The dress was ready before 25th, but I didn't get the chance to post it. Thanks to y'all! I've started, there's no stopping. *winks
Onyinye Etoniru: My #Dare2do Challenge
For four years, I tried to learn how to sew. I enrolled for a sewing class during my NYSC for three months but only attended the class for about 3 days but never had a chance to even pedal. Doing the #Dare2do challenge, I achieved in four hours, what I could not achieve in four years. #ThankGod #IsewedtheSkirt.
Ruth Okoli: My #Dare2do Challenge
I found it super difficult to make my hair by myself. I always have to beg this Aunty- Grace Chinomso Okoli to help Me but recently She decided to be proud and refused my appeal.
I later decided to ask my younger sister- Okoli Peace (It was that bad). Unfortunately, she turned me down. Then I took the bold step to do it myself.... It wasn't easy but I did it.
Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.-Dale Carnegie
