Keeping my promise

A few months ago, this community asked DreemPort to collaborate.

Immediately, I said, "Yes of course!" After getting to talk with the mods and founder of the community I had a special feeling about this upcoming month. At the time, it was still far off into the future, but I just had that special feeling. Why?

Because we have all kinds of challenges for DreemPort. Some focus on our skills, some focus on silliness, some focus on engagement, some focus on personal goals, some focus on pushing us beyond our limits.... but this one? This one had a special impact on my heart. This one made me think "how can we help to heal a nation?"

This nation is Nigeria, and dreemers are going to Hive Naija.

I know some of you are thinking - but... we aren't Nigerian! hehe That was one of my first questions to @belemo. And he assured me - Hive Naija isn't only for Nigerians. Hive Naija is a community that expresses the Nigerian experience to all- and all are welcome.

I bet there are a lot of people who didn't know that - so I'm thrilled to be able to tell you that you are invited to experience Nigeria! But I'll be brutally honest with you - because many Nigerians have been brutally honest with me! There are many who are struggling with their country. It is not what it once was, and there are a lot of hurting hearts, dashed hopes, and fractured futures.

But remember - the seed. The future orchard. The unity and the peace.

There are some who feel their only chance at a good future is to leave Nigeria. But I have spoken to some who believe that Nigeria is not a lost cause - and that they hope for a revival. A restoration of a better Nigeria. They still have hope, and they have said "Because what else can we do?"

And I thought... isn't this what so many of us are feeling right now? Isn't this uncertainty pervasive in so many minds today? Aren't we currently doubting our own governments and our own countries and wondering how things have slipped? If there is a way back? Is there something to bind us together?

The knee-jerk reaction is "LET'S CHANGE THE COUNTRY!" Let's rebel! Let's demand! Let's push back! And I'm here to say... hmmm. I think there is a better way. I think instead of focusing on the negative and drawing more attention to it by shouting at it, calling it out, knocking it back... there are better AND SAFER ways to achieve the same results.

Instead of inflaming the war - what if we attract like-minded game changers?

Instead of going on the offense for our needs - what if we looked for ways to lift others?

Instead of the war of words - what if we tried to #speekpeece?

Yes we are going to Hive Naija, and I believe that Nigeria needs this right now. I don't think that we are going to solve all the problems in Nigeria in 3 weeks. I'm not that naive. But I do think that a small seed can be planted for that future orchard. I think that we can all come with united hearts FOR Nigeria - but we also can be changed in the process. I think that when we have the intent to change a country - it needs to begin with us, inside our hearts and homes. When that happens, the change organically and naturally radiates outwards and becomes contagious.

It sounds like a lot. Maybe it sounds too idealistic for some. I say - don't let that prevent you from being a part of something special. Let's continue to get ready for October. I'm super excited!!! Let's do this together!

some focus on personal goals

Rather many. Probably most of us. This is understandable. This is a basic human trait. We really cannot blame anyone.

Wow 😳 so Thrilling to see this Let's hope for the Best 🙏

@dreemsteem , you have made my night. like seriously, cant wait for october.

@glorydee @jessicaossom @constanceitohan , lets get ready for these

I'm in total support with you when you said

I'm also a believer in the fact that there is always a better way out and I feel this way is helping one another. Believing in the idea that another person's success can also be yours, you reap from a person's happiness. So one does not have to be envious of another person but rather be glad for them and celebrate with them as well, cause as my daddy will always say

those you celebrate with today will also celebrate with you tomorrow.

Wow... This shows that the best is coming to Nigeria. I am happy to hear this

That is a great initiative. ❤️😎

Yes, it sounds like a lot, and I don't know what to spect but sure sounds fun! Looking forward to it, Dreemie!!! 🙂👍

First off, I said it in your post yesterday. Hivenaija. I guessed right.

I’m almost teary because as a Nigerian, it is warm to see that others can understand the plight of Nigerians and stand in solidarity. I will pray for the success of this. Let's do this.

Wahoo 🤭🤭🤭🤭
This is absolutely awesome
My own Country? Awwwnnn....I hope for this planting season to yield a positive result.
Many thanks for this Dreemie
We love 💕 and love 💕 and love 💕 you biggggggggg😂👍

This summarized what I could have said. !hiqvote

Great community Great country Great people

This is huge and I can tell how much positivity the collaboration will spread in the heart of many Nigerians. There is still good left in the country and I am sure this hard time will pass, I can't wait for October to set in.

This is so awesome 🙌 I am curious, what will the challenges be???

That is way better than the sounds and rounds of war. HiveNaija is very honored and feels blessed with this Collaboration. If we can create hope in the hearts of the people, the seed has already bee planted!

NO MORE VAWULENCE, 9JA

Wow Dreemie, this is really so amazing really, I'm so happy we are ready to help the Nigeria brethren among us to be more positive about our country.

Let's #speekpeece, I'm all in captain Dreemie.

This is great news. Thanks ma'am Tiger Lily for accepting this collaboration with my country's community. I have a feeling a lot can happen in 3 weeks and it will be positive happenings. 🥰🥰

It is always honor for me to be able to interact with Nigerian writers on Hive. Somehow Hive makes the world seem so much smaller and personal. !LUV

The honor goes both ways sir...Hive has been a good way to connect with different folks all around the world ❤️

Hahahaha,

You know I couldn't mention any names, but you could read my thoughts.

I have a lot of !LUV to go around... just not much time. Maybe we should get a time token or does someone have one already !LOL

These are also very handy to have around:

Hive definitely does bring people together 🙌

!PIZZA

Every day seems to be a !PIZZA party at Hive. Honestly it's the place I feel most comfortable with even though more of my friends are on Instagram and the crypto market is not would I's like it to be some people in Hive are just fun to interact with for the sake of interaction. It's almost like a game

!BEER

It should be this way :) ... When it feels like work, what's the point? Isn't it more important to have fun and grow?

I think I'm out of tokens for a few hours 😂

"I think I'm out of tokens for a few hours"

You are excellent in interaction and sharing hive-engine tokens

I woke up very early just to see this! I am so excited and glad that we get to do something. The planting has started...the rest? The Lord would see to.

So much has happened...and as I'll wish not to have been born Nigerian...I'll have never been any happier if I wasn't Nigerian...the thrills..the challenges...the happy moments..the fight for a better future ..that's part of what builds us...that's why a Nigerian naturally stands out whenever he goes... we're going to have that change soon and I believe it...
Its great to have people like you who've welcomed us with open arms and without having to travel we've connected and found a home away from hope..
You're really doin a lot to push Dreemport and Hive...Keep going my dear ❤️❤️

The battle to save Nigeria has to start from the heart and not on the field. The only way we can effect positive change is through individual values.

I believe we can still get our country back and I can't wait to see what you have in store for us.

Three weeks are not enough to grow the tree but they are pretty enough to plant the seed and give it care to nurture in the future.

With love and support we would #speekpeece together 🤞

Well this is exciting.. Can't wait to see what you guys have planned for all of us.

The Nigerian dream is like Coming To America and I believe so much that we would get there. Speaking and acting this dream is achievable with concerted effort.
To have said this much, @dreemsteem, you must have read and heard much about our beloved Nigeria.
For me, Nigeria is a phenomenon. A case study for many things (good, bad and ugly). But beyond all that, Nigeria is a place to be. A place where all nations of the world are resident.
Sacrificing October for Nigeria in the #HiveNaija community is definitely going to raise the bar. I mean, it would be the first of its kind in the history of engagement on Hive. You will be glad you drove in.

This is an awesome idea...I haven't been around for a while now but I will get myself prepared for October.

Aye captain. Amazing stuff! Hive Naija community needs all the light, support and hope it can get from all the wonderful dreemers. #speekpeece sounds about right.
