Happy New Year!!! It’s not too late to say that though. January has been a rollercoaster but I landed safely and what better way to start the new month than to celebrate my birthday. At first, I was not excited at all. I just felt I am getting old and I still have a lot to achieve among other dilemmas. In the midst of all this, I came up with activities I can do.
As I was coming up with the activities I found the mantra for my 24th year. It is as simple as ‘Just Do It. I know that it is the Nike trademark but I want to apply it in my life. Those who know me can tell you that I am scared of everything. I always make calculated moves and tend to be careful. You will need more than it will be fun to convince me to go for an event or trip. Even as I work on my year of courage and confidence, I don’t want to hold back anymore. I am trying to be as outgoing as I can be, no more excuses and over analysing. I will just do it.
The second thing that has been on my mind is the word grateful. Weird I know, but when I woke up on the 1st of February that was the word I had in mind. I just sat in bed and started listing the things I am grateful for. It’s so easy to get caught up thinking about what I want and it ends up making everything else meaningless. I have a lot to be grateful for and will try not to overlook how great things have been for me because of one desire.
The third thing is the impact I want to have on people and the mark I will leave. There has been a lot of debate in this industry of blogging, vlogging and social media on how authentic a person really is or is it about the cheque they get when they tell you to buy something. Would you believe me if I told you that having this blog scares me sometimes? I always wonder what people feel or think after they read a post. I hope my posts resonate with someone.
I have been thinking about a lot of stuff but that is all for now.
Happy New Month
