So, this is the last episode for the year 2022. I’m super excited that we all made it through to this point. It’s not been easy. I know there’s been up and downs and things that you didn’t like that happened with you. But the truth is there are also things you didn’t expect that happened and then they were for good.

I think what I just want to butress for this last podcast is just gratitude. The truth is we may not have been able to get the car or the land or the house that we wanted to, but the fact that we survived in Nigeria is more than enough reason to be grateful. A lot of things happened, a lot of ups and downs, but we’re still here alive, surviving, like you are not blind.
You can lift your hands, you can talk, you can listen. All of that is more than enough reason to be grateful. I do realize that when a year is coming to an end, there’s always the need to, oh, I didn’t get to do this. Oh, I didn’t get to do this next year I’m going to … just calm down. Take a deep breath, and. Just let it out.
Yes, it’s a race. You have to get all these things. You need to improve. You need to give yourself time and dedication. All these things will happen, but don’t try to push yourself excessively. Be grateful for the things you have. That job you have, Yes, you’re not happy with what you’re being paid, but do you know how many people don’t have a job?
Do you know how many people. Are probably more qualified than you are but are jobless. You don’t like the circumstance you’re in. You know there are people who, their dream basically is to be where you are. I’ve traveled this past few months and I’ve seen people, I’ve seen things that just cos me to say, God, thank you.
I know I’m not where I would like to be. I’m not as maybe famous, do I even want to be famous? I don’t even know. There’s this heart of gratitude I’ve learned to have, and that is what I want you to go into the coming year with whatever comes your way. Of course you’re going to put in the work.
My name is Micheal “Mandrel Mykels” Olaniyi and I’ll see you next year.
