With Deepest Gratitude: THANK YOU!

“For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”…Luke 12:48

On December 1, 2010 when Quark Expeditions announced that it was looking for a blogger to follow its 20th anniversary expedition to the North Pole, my entry was the very first one submitted.

Submitted mostly out of disbelief that a statement I made to myself during my teenage years in Nigeria could potentially come true. Reason aside. Logic aside. This was my childhood dream and immediately, years of emotions came flooding to the surface.

And so I entered in faith and started asking for support – fair and honest votes – without gimmicks. It wasn’t until just two weeks into the competition did I begin to fully realize just how involved , risky, and taxing this was going to be, and even up until the very last minute, I stayed true to running a clean campaign to reach this childhood dream.

The competition ended today…and I missed the Top 5 by only 3 votes.

While my inner child is disappointed, my adult self is sincerely grateful. Truly, utterly, and humbly grateful for the massive generosity that came flooding in throughout this campaign up until the very last second, and for an amazing network of family, friends, colleagues, and hundreds of strangers who I now consider friends.

To all [ 2,521 ] people who took the time to vote, thank you so much.

Every single one of your votes was and will remain important to me.

Besides vowing never to put everyone through such an arduous process again, the three key lessons learned so far are these:

• Sometimes leaping out in absolute faith regardless of outcome is the answer; trusting that every risk taken is a natural selection process; unveiling true friends and those who are willing to go that extra mile on your behalf. And for every single one of you, I will be forever grateful.

• Hardwork will only get you so far and we truly can’t reach where we want to go in life without others. We need their support and love to carry us through those last few steps. We need to let go and be truly vulnerable.

• Follow your heart. While you may not be able to successfully communicate its importance (to you) to others sometimes, that doesn’t make it any less real or important to you.

Thank You so much! E se é pupô! Tack så mycket!

In addition to all 2,521 of you, I would specially like to thank the following people. Note, I will be adding to the lists below (including links to various websites). Wanted to get this out now…

[ First and Foremost ]

God and my savior, Jesus Christ – My hope, faith, and life.
Urban – My husband, love, and heart.
My parents & family – Your support and pride give me strength.
My siblings – The craziest lot on earth who also keep me grounded. Love you guys.

[ Special Shout-Outs ]
