Dusk: Abigail

El Oh El

I have started this post in so many different ways in my head but none seems to capture the essense of 2014. So I choose to Laugh Out Loud…

Because I’m happy…

That is my theme song for 2014. If you read my 2013 review here, you’d know that wasn’t exactly the kinda year I wanted for an enemy but hey sh*t happens yeah? And when it happens a woman’s got to become a night soil man and do some disposing.

Because I’m happy…

Like the biblical Job I got everything back this year. Well, everything that I wanted. Never did I think I had such a motherhood streak in me. I surprised even myself. The relationship with the boys is A Ok. Was scared that with them things would not be the same again. But here we are totally having fun.

Happy Happy Happy
Happy Happy Happy

My relationship with my God has greatly improved. I’m no longer upset with Him and I can feel His presence in my life daily. I make it a point to pray at least once a day 😀

Cos I’m happy

I accomplished a lot this year. So much that looking back I wonder where all the energy came from. I started #CommOnTheGo (twitter and YouTube) and #TheFloorNg with some friends. I was Project Manager for the Nigeria Agriculture Awards – the first of its kind in Nigeria. I started getting paid for writing articles (imagine getting paid for a hobby, I still find this funny). I wrote a book (soon to be published). Okay, let me stop there before I begin to feel awkward.

I maintained having just a few friends. Grew apart from some, forced myself to remain close to some. Generously used my mute button on Twitter for my own peace of mind because I’m a little more sensitive about people’s feelings and opinions.

It should have been my anniversary today. But, God has remained faithful.

I am still happy…


Is it OK for me to famz and say I share your happiness, dear friend? Is it OK? I’m so happy for you too. Dance into 2015 and have no thought for those things that might have been. Thank you for sharing.

See you all tomorrow 🙂


I love to learn. I love to teach. For me the two are the same.
