On Kissing and Telling... The Joy In Telling!






15:03:15 I had a perfect evening. It didn’t matter anymore, the fact that I had to fight back tears and a ton of anger and feelings of betrayal from someone I held dear hours before. It didn’t matter, because once I got into my dress, I felt like a princess, and I knew the world was mine to conquer. I held back tears at different times when I heard people speak. I saw the pride in the eyes of my loved ones, and the excitement in the eyes of my friends.

I lost a lot of weight recently and people have given me their opinions on my weight loss. As good as I felt with my body, I began to worry and get a little self-conscious. But on this day, I owned my body… Away from their opinions and away from the self-consciousness. This day was me, stepping into the path of royalty that has been set before me from the beginning of time in my Style by Cecil and Virgos lounge dresses.
I really can’t explain the feeling. But have you ever felt so free? Like you could just spin and dance and fly away from all the lightness in you? I felt that way. I danced like I had never danced before… in public. I felt drunk and I was aptly so in my spirit.

People wondered why I would have my launch in Makurdi, why not Lagos? But I told myself, why not Makurdi? I grew up there. My family is there and for now, why deny your roots because it doesn't look as glamorous as where you want to be? I'm glad in the end I proved them wrong. You can have a wonderful occasion, wherever you are, and you can thrive even in a seemingly dry land. Looking forward to the Kiss and Tell Lagos event though!

15:03:15 was one of the happiest days of my life. I don't feel like I just launched a book, I feel like I launched out. God has been so good. It felt good to be celebrated! What wows me is this truth I know within, that I haven't seen anything yet... the path of the righteous shines brighter and brighter. That day may have been bright for me, but it's so dim compared to what's coming.
Enjoy the pictures… I had to cut down on the number of pictures to post, so i just showed me off with the pictures I chose :) :(

Mr. William Anyebe did an awesome job reviewing my book. I got schooled on my work.
