Be nice to yourself. Spoil yourself; pamper yourself and treat yourself to all the good things of life you can afford.

It is not a crime if you buy yourself a nice dress, the wig you’ve been eyeing on that Instagram page or the shoe you saw in Wuse Market.

You won’t get fat this one day you decide to lick ice cream, eat pizza or pounded yam and Egusi soup.

Some of us spend and dedicate our lives to the service of others that we forget or feel we can’t afford to do these things for ourselves.

We sacrifice to keep others happy while we exist for the greater good. Well done if this is what you’re about. But, remember to do you, be you, say you, act you, think you and love you.

Remember yourself.

  1. Nice piece. But for some of us, we just exist rather than live. Who told you will die if you take yourself out on a Sunday and get a nice cloth, buy yourself a roasted fish, and go see that movie. You no go die I swear, we should start living and stop existing. Remember ye self.

  2. Edima has spoken….! I’m treating myself to some nice puff puff and cold coke.
