6 Days to Christmas 🎅. 6 Reasons to be thankful.

09:37 AM

An internalized discovery of Self is what Purpose means and the beginning of its fulfillment.
Over the years, the inclination towards Academics, its Research and application to solving societal problems – the Town and Gown nexus – has been my passion and this Purpose have been given expression in the words and encouragement of acquaintances, friends, colleagues and associates.
In the Spirit of the Christmas Season, I’m aligning my Purpose with the Birth of Christ that my Purpose speaks, births academic/professional excellence, scholarship, creates societal upliftment and produces a rewarding global recognition.

6th Reason to be thankful: Postgraduate Studies.
Upon completion of undergraduate studies, every Graduate’s dream is to hit the Industry and start making money. Mine wasn’t different especially having acquired professional caps in between undergrad studies, I just couldn’t wait to start making money and alleviate the burden of training my siblings off my wonderful parents.
And finally the opportunity to do a Postgraduate came and the best part of it was that it was fully paid for.
Dad Adegbeminiyi Abiodun Thomas , thanks Boss for been there as always. Delectable Mum-Aunt Feyi Adeyemi , I know I can always count on you Ma.
I appreciate the divine provision and I’m grateful for it. Thank you Daddy, let us do it again in 2017.

7 Days to Christmas 🎅. 7 Reasons to be Thankful.

7 Days to Christmas 🎅. 7 Reasons to be thankful.

12:02 AM

Christmas this year would hold for me a potpourri of mixed feelings – an assortment of nostalgia and euphoria.
The anticipation of Christmas has not been this exciting for me in the past decade and the reason for this is because the past few years of my life have been dedicated to attainment of academic and professional goals which leaves no room for “mundane” and “unproductive” activities like Xmas celebrations and its attendant conviviality.
The Journey to Self-Actualization is still work-in-progress but I feel this sense of fulfillment to be in the threshold of the fourth rung of Abraham Maslow’s Pyramidal Hierarchy of Needs.
The period of prime adulthood has robbed me of the joy and merriment of this beautiful season, but no more as I feel so young again – just like in my preteen and teenage years and Jay-Z’s “Forever Young” is calling encore in my head.
There’s a lot to be thankful for and for that I’ve taken cue from my bestie, Ikpe Kelechi Cindy to countdown to Christmas with a grateful heart.

7th Reason to be Thankful: A Lovely Apartment.
One of the checklist towards Manhood is Independence. Chief of which is Financial and Spatial (Housing). By privilege I have spaces I could call my own, but the element of Independence was still lacking; hence the challenge to get a space of my own.
I was able to achieve that with the encouragement and support of my amiable partner and January 2016 got me a lovely apartment of my own.
