Without further wahala, today I’m here to give a toast to life. I’m here to raise my glass up in the air in all words I can fumble on & scribble to make sense & be grateful for today & just how far I’ve come.
Most importantly, I don’t want today to be about myself and whatever it is today has taught me. Today I don’t want to make you read all these words without you being part of this story & Journey. I’d love to appreciate you for reading, following, critiquing, sharing, clapping and dropping by always. You matter, you’re special, you’re appreciated!
Here’s to us, here’s to who we are today and he’s to who were destined to be. Here’s to the strangers that turned friends, the friends that turned family. You’re the most important thing that has happened to us. Today is because you were, yesterday was because you were and tomorrow will be because you are!
For the times you always came through when I needed you, the money you always sent when I was strapped, the piece of advise you always threw my way when I seemed to be stuck at crossroads and the inspiration you offered even without having the slightest idea will forever be deeply rooted. It shall forever be cherished & appreciated.
We all came together, tolerated each other’s imperfections and together, we started something strong and promising. We’ve hired and shared opportunities with our fellows and we’re still going strong with so much energy. We’ve been selfless and tolerant and have done everything in our power to do good.
In our youthfulness, we’ve had our own ups & downs, we’ve been careless at some point and we’ve fallen terribly. On a sunny day, we’ve managed to pick ourselves up and carried on with the adulting journey.
In the same spirit, we’ve lived life to the fullest, eaten our money, worked equally hard to earn the lives we live now.
Here’s to us, here’s to great things that lie ahead, here’s to good health, here’s to seeing each other prosper and be where they aspire to be. Here’s to growing stronger together.
Friends, here’s to us!
