Today’s affirmation: cherish what you have right now because you don’t know what tomorrow is going to be like.
Eli you meant so much to, I can never think about you without crying. You was such a great person who inspired me to be the best version of myself. You made me learn about myself more, you were there for me when nobody else was, but you stayed in my life like you was obliged to, that I will for ever cherish. Thank you so much for showing up in my life, may you continue to rest in perfect peace.
R.I.P (it hurts so much)
Even though my Social Media & Entrepreneurship lecturer told me to start a blog back at university, I wasn’t motivated enough to start a blog until Eli stepped in and persuaded me to do so. This is how Lizzy Lozzo blog started, even thou prior to starting the blog, I had always thought about creating a platform where all the frequently asked questions about my skincare, makeup, healthy lifestyle, style etc by my friends, family strangers can be answered.
After being inspired to write my 1st post which ended up getting so much positive reactions, which made me feel like there was a gap for a blog that focuses on real life situations and experiences unlike the usual popular gossip blogs. I began writing often about my personal experiences, but often times, I will get distracted and neglect the blog.
Eli religiously checked the blog, he will read through it and tell me if I’ve made a grammatical error (winks I always do, I don’t care for English grammar tbh, it’s all about ‘issa, issa’ haha) or if there isn’t a new post to ensure that I write one. Even though I had a lot of people reading my blogs, I felt like Eli was my only reader that’s why everything stop when Eli stopped.
So in the summer of 2015, Eli has gone away to America for holidays, we constantly spoke and he constantly kept me on my toes. When he returned, we met for lunch and he told me the news. I was so upset, I wanted to start crying here and there but I wanted to be strong for Eli, so I held it in. I cried for 2 days and couldn’t go to work. Ever since that meeting, Eli kept of getting worst until his last day on earth (sad).
Eli is genuinely the nicest human I’ve met till date, my happiness and success meant so much to him. Even thou I stopped writing, I knew that is not what Eli wanted but I was just in denial which is why I have been away for so long. But I’m back, I’m back, I’m back my lovelies.
You can read this blog to see when I shaved my hair in support of Eli.
Thank you so much for reading my lovelies for your constant support. Please stay connected with me on my other social media pages as follows:
Rest In Peace, you will forever be in my heart.
