Earlier this week I sent an entry to wifey’s blog. I’m reposting it here cos I’m lazy like that. Enjoy 🙂
Today, my show case feature is on Bayo Owolabi. He shares his feat on overcoming his fear of water. Be inspired!!
I was born in Abeokuta, a sleepy town in the south west of Nigeria and lived there for the first five years of my life. I have very vague memories of the place and some of the lingering vivid ones are; the trip to the photographer’s on my fifth birthday, a fearful Santa Claus we visited, and the terror I felt any time we drove over the bridge that traversed the River Ogun. From Abeokuta, it was off to Ibadan – a landlocked city with little in the form of aquatic delights. I was very afraid of anything bigger than a swimming pool. It might be genetic (if fear can cross generations) seeing that my mum is terrified of the sea till today.
