50th Blog Post—The Journey so Far!!!!

“The purpose of challenges in life is to overcome them. You can climb over, dig deep or smash through, but never retreat; because when greater challenges arise in the future, you will have in your possession the tools attained in conquering the smaller challenges from the past”. Kabir Kareem-Bello

The Journey Begins

The Journey Begins

When I posted my first blog on the on the 18th September 2013, I was on the personal quest for meaning and I did not know the destination. This is now the 50th post, what a journey it has been. Firstly, I must thank the most important contributors to KILONSHELE-KKB, YOU MY READERS. If you have been following from the 1st post or just joined recently, I hope you have had a fruitful and enjoyable journey. Without your support, I would not have made the giant strides I have made over the past couple of years. I must acknowledge and thank my Chairman Tega (KKB VS THE CHAIRMAN) and my dear sister Alahaja Moshood (Change is Inevitable) for their enlightening contributions.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing this blog, which has contributed enormously to my intellectual growth. The earliest posts were the most enjoyable to write. They were the most intimate and funny because it was the beginning of a personal journey of finding myself. I was at a Crossroads in my life and this blog gave me a sense of purpose and direction. I was able to write about inspirational characters I met like Mathew the Rewirer; the Motor boys of Lagos and the guys for “The People You Meet” posts. Although I didn’t know it when I began, some of these early posts were the start of the Quest 4 Identity series.

I would say that my best pieces of writing were:

  • Google is God
  • I will not Apologise; and
  • Quest for Identity Series Part 2: Black History Month: Is it still relevant?

There were extremely important topics and I felt a sense of responsibility to share my thoughts.

The most difficult posts to write were those from the KKB in 9iaja part 2 blocs, in December 2014. The Poor Education vs. No Education piece was especially challenging. Although I still regret not sharing the experiences which prompted the “Freedom without Discipline=Chaos” post; I have learnt and grown from those experiences which itself requires a great deal of courage. My favourite character has to be the taxi driver from the “Fight at the pump” post; I still cannot believe that man’s audaciousness.

My greatest joy is making people laugh, I will be forever grateful that some of my posts has brought smiles to many faces. I hope that other posts have inspired you and enabled some critical thinking in this new age of populism and zombies. Writing these posts has given me the courage to face and overcome many challenges in my life. It has provided me with the opportunity to meet wide a range of individuals who have contributed to its success without even knowing. Kilonshele-KKB.COM has enabled me to evaluate and re-evaluate my viewpoints on many of life’s issues and has inspired me to continue my pursuit to change the world for the better.

Thank you again for being on this journey with me, I truly appreciate it and I hope we can continue together. Please share your thoughts on your favourite or most inspiring post(s) in the comments section below.

KKB SALUTES YOU ALL………..
