Yaay!!! Arrived at 40! Let’s Luxuriate in it!!!


First off, I want to say a really big thank you for coming with me on my 40 days to 40 journey! Life is such a glorious gift but it’s the easiest thing to take for granted because the fact that you are here means you still have it.🤷🏽‍♀️

I had to dedicate that time to pausing, taking stock and self reflection… I wasn’t going to reach this milestone without acknowledging how far I had come, without going back to see what my hurts and mistakes have taught me… without evaluating because it’s through all this that I can lay strong, working, customised building block for the future! So thanks for your love, likes and comments as I journeyed through that!

I celebrated my 40th on the 3rd of December in a way that was authentic and honouring to me… I spent it in Mauritius (a country I have always wanted to visit! The reality trumped my best dreams!). I spent it on the ocean (my happiest happy place! My paternal Grandfather was a sailor, he died at sea as the captain of a ship. So I guess somewhere in my blood is the love and allure of the ocean!). I spent it with my friends and sister! I spent it trying new things (parasailing y’all) and everywhere I went, creation responded to me in love!

Enjoy some photos below:

Catholic Church in Mauritius… I am not Catholic but when I travel, it’s the one Church I am sure to find. And since there’s only 1 God, I take a moment to bow down and say a prayer! Everything good about me is God y’all! I am nothing without Him.

What’s not to love!
Parasailing… from a distance… it’s all quiet, it’s all calm and everything is figure-outable!
Nothing like friends who will pose with you!!! 💋💋💋

Friends who will “play” with you!

Friends who will laugh with you!!!

Ravishing Ronke! Power house!!!!
Aisha!!! I love you! Sister like no other!

Carol! Cool, Calm, Collected and ohhhh so adventurous! She wanted to go walking with the Lions! She’ll do it on her next trip! 😜
Everything about turning 40 was better than I had dreamed and hoped!

Cheers to 60 more years of love, joy, hope, impact and a life that is fully lived!!! I hope you enjoyed Mauritius with me! I will do a travel post for those willing to go soon!

Stay awesome people! May our lives count in amazing ways!

Ciao!

Hajel!
