Hi Darling Tribe,
How are y’all doing todayyyy? I hope you find answers this day, and as you look back on the past years, may you see several reasons for gratitude! May you birth the essence of your purpose in life, Amen.
I’m so excited about this day in particular. I don’t know exactly how to start but however it comes, just enjoy the read, tribe. Also, it’s a long post alert. I hope you’d stay through with me to the end.
Two years ago, as I sat down to write my first blog post, I found myself at a loss for where to start. I was clueless on how to begin, At that moment,I had a lot in my head that I just wanted to let out hence I seized the happening in Nigeria and I ended up releasing my first blog post.
Since then, I have written at least one blog post a week and sometimes more than once in a week for the past two years. I have found my rhythm and style, and blogging has become part of my routine. My original purpose in blogging still holds – To heal the broken hearted, To nurture, prune, build, and encourage people to strive for a purposeful life. To be honest, I still take a deep breath when I hit the publish button as it still feels a bit brazen sending my words off into the world.
Two years, 160 blog posts, 766 comments, 4,417 views, 2,625 visitors, 100 followers.A multitude of support flowing in and a BIG thank you to YOU. As you can tell from the title of this blog post, today marks the second year anniversary day of vive with kuye. I can’t believe how fast time has flown by and how much this blog has grown. None of this would have been possible without your constant support and encouragement. The past year has been a whirlwind of a rollercoaster — one that I actually enjoyed riding. To celebrate this day, I just want to express my gratitude to God for holding my hands and inspiring me to write to you. To Him alone be all the GLORY🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼. I will not go weary in showing up to this assignment, Amen.
Whether you’ve been following along for the full two years or for the past two minutes, thank you so much for your support! I can’t tell you how happy it makes me every time I get an email, message, or blog comment from you. It gives me the inspiration to keep going on the difficult days. I’ve found so much happiness from feeling like I can help others even just the tiniest bit through my blog posts. The best compliment I’ve ever received is that I made someone dealing with grief realize that they could one day be happy again and fulfill their God-given purpose. Comments like that are what inspires me to keep working hard on this blog. Thank you so much for being part of the journey with me!!!
I’ve learned so many lessons after starting vive with kuye. The first and most important is to push any and all doubts out of your mind. I doubted my own ability to start. When I gave God all the “whys”, He made me see reasons why I’m the best person for the assignment. Right then, I understood the saying God qualifies the called and He uses ordinary imperfect people like me to do amazing stuffs. But you truly never know if you don’t do it. It’s cliche, but so true. I knew who in my life supported this journey and believed in me enough to push me to go after my purpose. But I also had people who came up with every single possible reason why I can’t. In the end, I had to learn how to push those voices out and to let the positive ones in.
Secondly, I had to work really hard to stop comparing myself with others. In the beginning, growth was slow. It was also hard to see other bloggers in my position growing rapidly. In that season, I learned that everyone’s growth is different and that hard work is necessary. Instead of focusing on what others were doing, I started focusing on what God wanted me to do . I created better content, was more consistent and never lost the site of who I was or maybe tried to create content outside the theme to generate traffic. I want to always be true to who I am and to write about topics that would touch the hearts of my tribes.
I’ve loved making new connections with fellow bloggers who are just as passionate as I am. To be part of a community that builds each other up with words of support and encouragement is so inspirational. I’ve realized how many talented people exist out in the world and how there is a space on the internet for everyone. As long as you have a purpose, you can go after it and succeed. I’ve had incredible highs and people have shared testimonies about how different contents has met their needs. Every one of them holds a special place in my heart.
I am so glad I took the bull by the horn by yielding to the purpose of God for my life as regards what He wanted me to do. I want to thank every single one of you who have visited my site. The past years of encouragements, prayers,relationships and memories would have been impossible without YOU. I am forever grateful for the messages, emails and love flowing in every day. I saw a vision in what I wanted to do, and the people around me believed in me enough to support me, and there’s nothing more valuable in that. So thank you to my amazing tribe for continuously coming back to read and for always supporting my purpose in your little way. Those little are HUGE.BELIEVE ME!
LASTLY, I can’t wait to see what the next years of blogging would look like. I will now go into a corner and cry my eyeballs out because I am so emotional right now- I’m the crybaby God created😂😂!!Yeah, Trust God and believe that you can — because if I can do it, you can do it! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!
Thanks a million for reading — until my next vive with kuye drops on your timeline. Love and Light to you. 💙💡
Yours in purpose,
