    1. Hello, thanks for the kind words. I’m glad my writing made you think and wonder. That’s what I aim to achieve whenever I put my writing out here. I’ll definitely check your posts out and let you know what I think.

  1. Happiness is when wealth surrounds you. In my native tongue that would translate to #Olayinka. #lovelypeice

  2. Happiness is as a result of ones actions and efforts, it isn’t ready made. Happiness is being excited just about the thought of getting home after a long day,and face timing that one person who’s smile makes you smile. Happiness is that tingly stomach feeling you get when you meet someone for the first time and do something to them you always wanted to do, like pull their cheeks or shake their hands. #HappinessIsGold

  3. Happiness is driving home without traffic. Happiness is running on Lekki/Ikoyi bring on a cold night. Happiness is going for Sunday brunch at Southern Sun. Happiness is having a chilled Coke.

  4. Happiness is having a double strawberry blue bunny ice cream all to myself 😁😁💪

  5. Happiness is shopping online, happiness is travelling, happiness is cuddling up with los, happiness is eating junk, happiness is reading historical romance novels, happiness is doing me 😬😬😬
