Welcome to 2020! Welcome to a new decade! This year, we will experience unlimited manifestation of God’s goodness and favour. May we accomplish more this year. May every pending blessings reach us fast. May this year favour us. Every promises of God in our lives shall be fulfilled 🙏❤

Smile more & show more gratitude!

I’m grateful for all the ups and downs. I had experiences I never thought I would have and learned so much more…I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life goes on.

I will like to say to someone out there, Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there’s also lots of beauty so please think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive; to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Grow through what you go through. You can’t keep whats not yours & you can’t hold on to something that doesnt want to stay.

Always remember there’s a blessing in the storm! So please smile more and show more gratitude! Stay positive! May we accomplish more in the new year 🙏❤
