My Instagram account got hacked! It happened like a film trick!

I would have said hello there but this is not a sweet story at all.

I’m still here wondering why it had to be me this will happen to. I mean, who did I offend? How many followers do I even have? I’m not even popular on the streets of Instagram. I kept on thinking a whole lot of stuff in my head. I didn’t even want to believe at first until my username changed, my bio was deleted and then the person started deleting my pictures. At that point, I knew that ‘nkan ti se mi’ (something had happened to me). Lol

Wondering how I spent my 25th birthday? I’m glad to announce to you that corona got nothing on me! Hehehe

You should grab a seat because it’s going to be a long gist.

I won’t be wrong if I say my birthday this year is still the best. The reason is that I celebrated my birthday at home with all the members of my nuclear family present and because you showed me love. Much more because I get to finally launch my blog.

It’s my 25th birthday! Yaaayyyy!!

I’m literally dancing as I type this because my heart is so full of joy. What exactly is so exciting about being 25, you’ll ask? I actually might not know. All I know is that my own experience is different from every other 25 years old out there and mine is definitely thrilling.

Before now, the thought of turning 25 was scary. Growing up, I used to think by 25, I’ll have everything figured out. I had everything planned. Lol! Truth is I don’t have it figured out yet, but who cares?!  I won’t wallow in disappointment for things I’m yet to achieve. Rather I’ll celebrate my little wins. Whew…

I’m so thankful to God for sparing my life till this time. God’s grace and mercy kept me till now. Growing up, I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs but His grace brought me this far.

Do you know what’s more exciting?

What’s more exciting is the fact that I’m finally launching my blog after so many years of procrastination. If I’ll put a time to it, I had launched my blog since 2018 in my head. IKR!

It means so much to me that my baby is going live on my birthday. Just see it as my gift to you.

Now you see why I’m so pumped.

 

15 lessons I’ve learned over the years

I have sure learned more than 15 lessons and there’s still so much left for me to learn. Let me share with you the top 15 lessons that have helped me get to where I am today. 

  1. Whatever makes you happy, do it.
  2. Nobody has it figured out; everybody is just trying to get by.
  3. You can do anything, so far you set your mind to achieving it 
  4. Stop trying to impress people, they don’t even care
  5. Don’t compare yourself to others, there is no set definition of success
  6. It’s okay to fail, it’s part of the growth process as long as you learn from it.
  7. Invest in friendships, they sometimes worth more than money
  8. Sometimes all you need is a break to figure things out
  9. Live within your means
  10. Save! Save!! Save!!!
  11. Don’t stop learning, adding value makes you more valuable
  12. Success might take time, trust the process
  13. Never take God out of the equation
  14. It is okay to have mentors or people you are accountable to
  15. Worry less but don’t stop working

On a final note, I’ll love that you hold on to this. You still have many years ahead of you, don’t let anybody rush you. You are not too old!

If your family is like mine, you should already be getting questions like, when will you get married? Let nobody pressurize you into doing what you are not ready for. That your little achievement is also an achievement and there’s still time for more.

A step at a time and you’ll definitely get there.

Feel free to add your lessons in the comment section and don’t forget to wish me a happy birthday. 

With love,

Welcome to my blog! I finally launched

My name is Opeyemi Omidiji and I could be a whole lot of things. For your own consumption, I’m a demographer, data analyst, content writer/storyteller, a presenter/event host and a fashion enthusiast. Well I think it is safe to add BLOGGER to my long list since I’m here already.

Who would have thought I’ll be called a blogger one day? After years of procrastination, I’m finally here. I always knew I wanted to blog, I just didn’t trust my guts enough. I would think about it to a fault and conclude that everything is not for everyone. Imagine!!!

I got the push I needed when I attended an event. At that time I was already writing for some people but I wanted more. I wanted something original so I asked the question, what does it take to start a blog? That guy answered and said ‘It takes you’….. I left that event that day with so much adrenaline running through my veins and I decided I was gonna do this. 

I’m here now and I’m so pumped. It’s sure going to be a great time for me and you.

Wondering what this blog will be about? Call me a G.L.A.M Blogger. Basically my blog gives you a free pass into my thoughts as I am willing to share with you everything I know about Growth, Lifestyle and More. (You get the GLAM gist now right?)
