I recently changed location and while at my former place, ooh I made some badass friends. I met people. I loved this city. I let my inner diva show.
I grew up in a village everyone calls a small town, and my parents were a ‘small town’ themselves: in that they didn’t let us mix up much. I grew up being indoor all the time and always running back to the four walls of my house- there I felt safe.
As a young adult, I didn’t know how to ‘go out’- hang out. I simply stayed in. I turned down dates and….the worse thing is, I didn’t even let people come visit. It was a messed up way of living.
I’m glad I finally got cracked after university, while in This City I love and will miss. I met some brown haired, free-spirited young man that showed me the way to have fun, city style.
Then he had to leave and I was my own girl. Boy, did I hang out! I went out with myself a lot. It was refreshing. I didn’t hesitate, I even blew a whooping sum(my house rent)in a short time on hang out. Lol.
It took a while of chilling solo, but eventually I found my pack.
I met them in my last month in This City, but it was ‘mad fun’ as they say.
Its amazing how bonds form.
Basically, I clicked off with these guys n girls the first time we met. It wasn’t a struggle. We just saw and the rest was adventurous history. And every moment shared with them was epic- how’s that even possible! There wasn’t a dull moment. I found myself hanging with them late into the night- and I would usually not give up my early sleeping habit for anything.
Here’s the thing…
Yesterday, I came back to my ‘small town’ and for a moment I did feel small again. That’s when I heard The Holy spirit say,
It’s not about the place, it’s about the mindset of the person.
Oh, I got it. I’ve always confessed,
Put me in any place and I will excel!
Once, again it didn’t matter so much anymore because the word of God came rising up in me when I needed it.
I’m going to miss my guys( n girls) so much. I going to miss The City. Will definitely miss KFC and shoprite. Will miss Christ Embassy , Ilorin…..the list is endless, trust me. Well, I’ll miss these. My consolation is the world is small and round ( err…spherical), so definitely we’ll magnetise ourselves to each other again some day.
This is one of those posts that breaks out from status quo. Its 4:11AM right now and it’s not a new week but I gotta send this out before I change my mind and before it becomes meaningless from over editing. 😉
