The Alphabet of my life

It’s my birthday
(No, it’s not)
But I still look good though

– Bruno Mars (Perm)

As I write this it is a day to my birthday. I have been listening to Adele’s music , all three albums. I am not recovering from a heart break but a hangover instead. I am still high be on Chimamanda Adicihie’s Americanah and Half A Yellow Sun. Stop judging for reading the books in 2018. I don’t do well with hype. A couple of years ago when she was recognized as a literary force to be reckoned with, I stayed away so as to enjoy the books and not hurry to the end. So since July I have been going through her collection and I am angry with Chimamanda. Why does she leave me empty, yet full? I want closure. She has a rare gift that leaves you laughing and crying at the same time.

Earlier in the morning, I walked the stretch to the office belting out Adele’s missing you. With no one in mind, I appreciated the each instrument and swayed to the melody. I still want to attend an Adele concert and have a front seat to her magic. As my birthday edged closer,  I had a grand idea on what to do. I had planned to resume Vlogging, have a photo shoot done and blog about what I am planning to do this year. Then a month ago, I changed my mind. This is exactly what I did last year. Everything I had planned for worked beyond my imagination. I prayed that God would stretch me above and beyond.  I wanted Him to be proud of me. Be careful what you pray for. God has openly corrected my faults and convicted me to work on them and for that I am eternally grateful. So this year, I choose to celebrate my birthday with thanksgiving.
