It’s been over 3 years since I last saw my family and I feel a deep sense of regret that it’s taken so long for me to visit again. All the reasons I had for why I couldn’t leave feel ridiculous after my father’s passing. Yes, I couldn’t have predicted the future but what I wouldn’t give to see him once again and hear him call me by his pet name for me.

I’m excited to see the rest of my family again and I will hug everyone a little tighter. My in-laws have been amazingly supportive especially in trying to be culturally sensitive to Nigerian grieving rituals and I remain incredibly thankful that I married into M’s family. ♥️

On the work front, things have been in so much flux that it makes my head spin. We’ve had several departures and most recently, have announced that we’ve gotten acquired by a pretty big name.

All in all, I’m getting a message from the universe that 2020 will be a year of flux. The question now is how I can harness this chaotic energy in a way that helps me stay true to myself.
