I have not been posting as often as I used to due to the nature of my job, but I will try to keep to a more consistent schedule and that will be twice in a week for now. Mondays and Thursdays would be my upload days and if time permits I might post thrice a week so fingers crossed.
I celebrated my birthday on the 26th of September, yes I know its far gone but its never too late to write and let you guys in on the things I have learnt so far.
As I approached 25 a lot began to change about me and I began to need more, I just got to a place in my life where being transparent, open and clear about my needs became a topmost priority for me (not like I have never been a transparent person).
I would highlight few of the changes that have happened so I don’t bore you guys.
- I have learnt to differentiate my needs from my wants
I don’t know why it took this long for me to get my act together lol but so far am enjoying the place I am at… learning to separate my needs from my wants has helped and saved me a lot of stress. its like a soul surgery where I get to ask myself tons of questions and making a decision to let the “Wants” go and stick to the needs. Bear in mind that some of the wants seemed like needs few years ago but with Gods wisdom I have been able to see things more clearly..
2. Defining things for what they truly are
This one is somewhat similar to the first point but also different in the sense that it had to do with a very delicate aspect of my life… I honestly had the courage just few days ago to encourage myself and tell myself that it is ok to define things especially when it comes to our emotions. There is no point wasting time over something which you obviously know wasn’t/isn’t going anywhere. if you are at this place in your life Currently I just want to let you know you will be fine, take that bold step few days/months/years from now I bet you, you would be glad you did what you did.
This is not being Rude, and I will always apologize when am wrong…. when I say unapologetic I am saying
- I choose to live in my truth
- we all deserve to be happy and to embrace life to the fullest, so I am going to explore and reach deep into those things which I would not do normally, not minding what someone somewhere has to say.
- I would only explain my choices when I really need to.
- I choose to be me
4. Being open (life can take you by surprise)
My dad once said to me do not put yourself in a box, you can fall in love with someone you never thought in your wildest dream you would, you can travel to a place you never pictured yourself travelling to, you can learn something you never had interest in, there is always something better don’t limit yourself…. Thank you Daddy I love you. I am definitely open and am not scared of failing it can only get better.
5. Asking a lot of why’s
Asking myself why has helped me to do things for the right reasons and not just because I have to do them. Never be scared to ask why, you would be shocked at how one answer can change your perspective on how you previously saw something.
