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.
