Love greetings everyone! I decided to pick my fingers and type today. And I am super excited, more like super thankful! Why? Its the 7th of September! My birthday! The thing is today hit me differently. I mean I have an awesome feeling today. You know, instead of waking up all gloomy and sad about the things I don’t have that I have tirelessly prayed for, I find myself so happy and thankful to God for His Love, for all the awesome things He has done to and for me in the very recent years! Let me share one with you. He brought me out from dark places where the enemy would have been happy to keep me (tongue out at the enemy) into His marvelous light, a place of love, joy, peace and so much more! Hallelujah! So the ‘Mobolaji’writing this piece today, is a very very thankful one! Please join me in giving thanks to God Almighty. 

Therefore, instead of writing what I would if it were September 6 or 8, like “the I just wish that every idea I put down on my Evernote gets to be published” story; and I am always wishing this! I am beginning to sound like a bad CD even to myself. I am sorry about that! 
Today, I want to remind myself of why I did this? I mean why I got myself a blog. It is not to make money, it is not to gain popularity, it is not to be one of the fast growing list of ‘successful Nigerian bloggers’. It is a fact that I care less about driving traffic, though it would be nice to get the message out there. It would be great to have some quality, inspiring blogs sharing substance! It is not for these reasons and many others. 

It is simply to share with you the things I stand for, the causes I support, my beliefs, my thoughts, my interests, my faith in order to create a specific picture of who I am and what I am about, the things that are important to me! I have found that if you don’t show (by your way of life) and tell people (with whatever voice you have) where you stand, they are likely to be mistaken about these things. And maybe, just maybe I can inspire others to do the same. 

We are in a world where everyone is concerned about all sorts of things, where niches are being formed, focused on and blown out to become industries in their own right. I see a need for us to maintain sanity. A need to remind ourselves that the most important thing in life is Love! The Love of God, the love of ourselves and each other. Don’t ever forget it, God is Love! There is a lot of change we can bring to this world if we will just find a way to live a life of love. 

So, love hugs and kisses to everyone out there today. Thank you for reading my birthday post! I hope it makes some sense and I am able to pass my message across. It would really be nice to hear from you! Till the next time we see, chat or read about each other, stay blessed.
