"I had a car. And a nice house, and a business I’d worked for since 16. At 50 I lost everything and walked away with just a bag of clothes, my lipstick and a heart full of tears. I had to walk everywhere.
"So I did... every day, even when I had nowhere to go. But it healed my mind & I lost 7 stones in weight! My health improved and I encountered interesting people.
"And then I fell in love against all my protestations that I would never again. I still don’t own my home, and I haven’t replaced my car, and I don’t hope to.

"I have never been so happy or grateful to my somewhat chubby, imperfect little legs! Enjoy what you have worked for, drive with a big smile always, but promise me you will still walk with pride."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported how a young man bought his first car at 22, Nigerians tell him it's not about age.
Many Nigerians reacted in different ways to his photos. While some congratulated him, others wanted to know how he was able to make his money, asking him to show them.
There were a few who also showcased what they achieved before they were even his age. A man with the Twitter handle @Ominikells said he bought his first vehicle at 19.
