Today I’m going to write about my city, and how grateful I am for it. Frankly, I have nothing in my head right now, we’re just going to see where my pen takes us to.
So… I’m a Nigerian, and I reside in Lagos State, the most popular of all states in the country. It’s the place where some people have dreams of coming to, because they believe once they can get to Lagos, a better life awaits them.
Lagos isn’t the best state, to me anyway. It’s just… The jungle of activities. It’s always bustling. People are everywhere, buildings are every where, there is rarely a breathing space, renting a house is as expensive as fuck…
Yeah well, that’s Lagos.
So what am I thankful for?
I’m thankful for the fact that I reside here, because I get to eat awesome burger, ice cream, and pizza. I gotta tell you, some states don’t have that because there are no too much activities there, and these restaurants wants to sell, so they are hardly there.
This is harder than I thought.
I’ll try this a bit differently. A poem.
Cause I’ve never had to think.
Never had to think of why
I am grateful.
Isn’t it funny?
How I’m grateful about restaurants?
But I’ve never counted my blessings
As regards to this place I live in.
This place I’ve lived all my life.
I think it’s something that happens
When you’re too familiar with something.
You don’t exactly feel thankful for it
Not because it’s so bad,
But because you’ve been there for so long,
And you want a better place.
Every time you compare the states
Of other countries,
Because you think yours is just terrible.
I’m going to be thankful about my state.
About burger and ice cream
To be precise.
Wouldn’t hurt to add pizza.
Is that something small?
No it isn’t.
My Father. Dad, was able
To build a life
For his family.
A life no one
Thought him capable of.
I think that.
I am most grateful for.
Well well. You just had to stop when things were getting interesting yeah?
So hello again✋✌. Nothing is too small for you to be grateful for. When in a whole state, it’s just the pastry🙈😰 (I promise more than that, but ideas are failing to come😤😩). Have you been in the situation when it just seems impossible for you to think of something you’re grateful for as regards to any topic? Please tell me topics where you believe you will face difficulties if asked to be thankful for them.
Now, everyone has to comment. Tell me the city you live in, and at least three things you are grateful about in that city you live in.
Also if you have any questions as regards to Nigeria, feel free to ask.
Now… Some appreciation photos…. Enjoy.
I may put up another post in the afternoon as I missed last weeks gratitude post, so I may have to post that of last week’s and this weeks today.
