“Good morning sweets. I’m grateful for so much. At the end of 2013 I was in a very dark place, toxic relationship, wanted to quit music and was worried about my weight, health issues and actually believed everyone around me was balling except me lol, but This year!!! I’ve grown a very thick skin, so things that will usually hurt are now refreshment when my friends and I are gisting lol (bad belle is allowed), my daughter graduated, moved into a bigger house with everything I want in it, I invested more in business and God gave me more, can afford to take care of my parents, I no longer give excuses for my failures, I just get up and ask the Holy Spirit to help, discernment is my best friend and even when it’s far from me I retrace my steps. I’m more mature, not quick to anger like I was in the past and my year is ending in the most beautiful way, My whole family is here with me. I ve you guys. There’s so much to be thankful for. 2015 will be a better year, I know this cos I know my father, he loves me enough to ensure that my testimonies never end. What’s your testimony? Let’s rejoice with u #merrychristmas#spreadlove #leavehate.”

    As much as I like Waje, I have to admit that she sounds so materialistic in this piece. All that worry about having this and not having that. Now she feels fulfilled by material wealth. If I was in a relationship with her, I'd behave toxic manner, too. That's a huge turn-off in a woman.
