My Third Blog Anniversary




Hello, friends from the internet!

Today’s post is a celebratory post, yes, I am celebrating a very special occasion.

My Third Blogversary!!

This year has been crazy, challenging and overwhelming. But hey, it’s a process, a way towards becoming my best self, right? I took a break from every social media platform, every single one. Utilised all my energy towards getting better.

This year I decided to seek help for my mental health, it was both a very scary and the bravest thing. I also decided to speak about my struggles and that’s when I realised the beauty of this community. I am truly blessed and I don’t know what good karma is paying off, you guys are amazing! The support and love that you guys have given me are precious to me, I am indebted forever.

If I look back to the happy memories of this year, nothing tops the relief I felt after my first session at the therapist office. I also learnt how to swim, I went from sitting on the edge of the swimming pool to diving into the deep end, it was a very empowering experience. I saw the beaches for the first time ever, I was mesmerised.

I met so many special people this year, who gave nothing but love to me. I also made some really good friends, people who get me, who want the best for me.

Let’s take a look at my favourite posts that I made this year.

  1. Hi Specscladeyes, I must commend your creativity and the evergreen words you bring up each time you publish on your blog. You made my 2018 incredible and I always look forward to your next publications. In the same light, I have received a good number of likes from you on my blogs as well. It really gladdens my heart each time I notice your likes and comments.
    More importantly, I have a forthcoming publication titled ‘Voices’ and I am in need of contributing poets on this one. I am hoping you will be interested in contributing to this effort. ‘Voices’ as titled is meant to discuss about the different visage of love – sweet love and sour love. In this publication, each contributing poets will come up with two poems; one perfect love story and the other, a sad love story.
    I was studying at your blog and I discover you have done so much on this subject matter, if given the permission I will go ahead to pick from the poems on your blog. I am hoping to have (15) fifteen contributing poets; among these poets are: Robert Okaji, Ragazza Triste, Vinz-Double-O, Luna, Frank Solanki, Baffy Basics, Cubby, Shefali among others. Your contribution and support will be well acknowledged and preached.
    Thanks for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon.
