This would be the second book I’ve finished reading this month and the second time I’m reading this particular book. Just like the first time, I closed the last page with a big heave. I mean, it’s just the story of a broken girl who found love in a man she didn’t deserve, or so I thought but reading it the second time opened my eyes to some messages I missed at first. Ignore that it’s a fictional story, these lessons are so real to me. They revolve around the theme of brokenness and finding purpose and today, I’d love to share them with you.
So for some of you who don’t know, I finally had my much-anticipated convocation from the Obafemi Awolowo University on the 7th of December, 2016. It was a day of mixed emotions for me. I was glad, proud, glad that my parents were proud, sad, tired, dissapointed and grateful. There was just too much to deal with. Now, I’m going to share the most of it with you guys, trailing it from the very beginning. If you are up for some story-story, hang in here. I’m very certain you are going to find some lessons to leave with.

We are officially in the first week of December 2016, guys. On social media today, I saw some people posting Christmas songs. Some have even started decorating. Like already??? Yaaaay! Even I recently made some ‘2017’ mistakes on my dates. It’s all so exciting or not. All of these send me one big message – The year is fast coming to an end.
