Big Brother Naija 2017 Housemate, Ekemini Ekerete, a.k.a Kemen is grateful for the journey so far as he turns 30 today.
He shares how plans he had for himself didn’t turn out as expected and how depression, ill-health led him to keep fit which he feels is a blessing in disguise. He wrote this on his Instagram page:
10yrs ago when I was 20 and working in a multinational company, I thought @25 I would be married, have my last child @29 help my wife get her body back in a year @30 and start acting as new lovers ever after. Oh well, I guess I thought too loud and my yard people heard me. I lost my job 3yrs later after I turned 23.
25 met me at the darkest point in my life, depression & ill health led me to fitness but it was obviously designed by God that I go that route because HE placed everyone I needed to get me through the hard times.
5 years down the line, I can say that fitness changed my life, my person, my perspective, my ideology and my understanding of life.
In fitness, I found peace, love, satisfaction, hope and fulfilment.
I may not have all I want, but I certainly have what I need.
I’m the best of my kind
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME.
