Have you ever sat down to think about the things you think about? Do you know that what you see is what you saw? Wait, don’t be confused yet. I heard the phrase what you see is what you saw in a movie, Tijuana Jackson: Purpose Over Prison. I immediately began to sing this popular TikTok song, I see, I saw, lol. I didn’t give much thought to the phrase until later that evening. The movie that looked boring from the beginning to my surprise, began to make sense to me.
Hello twenty-six, it is a pleasure meeting you!
It is 11:55 pm and I have decided to write this post since sleep is here playing hide and seek with me. So many emotions are running through my mind. I mean, just like that a baby girl is twenty-six. I guess you can only be young forever by heart. You know what’s funny is that I never looked forward to this day as much as I’ve looked forward to my previous birthdays but still, this is the calmest I’ve been about my birthdays in recent times. I really do not know if it’s a good feeling or could it be old age, lol.
Feels good to finally be saying hello April. I mean, it’s my birth month and for the first time in a short while, I’m excited about my birthday. I’m actually screaming in my head right now, if it was not late yet, I would actually be shouting and dancing, lol. Before I get carried away with excitement, Happy New Month to you. I hope you can perceive it too because April smells like success on this end.
The events of these past days have left me feeling overwhelmed and I know I’m not alone in this. Just yesterday night, my siblings had to keep asking me what had happened to me in the space of going upstairs to charge my phone and coming back downstairs to eat dinner. I kept on telling them nothing was wrong when in fact, my attitude was saying otherwise.
I bring you words of encouragement after months of battling discouragement myself!
I know I owe you an explanation of where I went. A lot of things happened which I might not be able to share now but instead, I’ll apologize. I’m sorry. If you subscribed to my newsletter then you should have gotten my apology note. If you’re not, do well to subscribe now. I’ll share more stuff and it might be limited to my email list or they get to read it first.
Do you know how to deal with disappointment? Have you ever experienced disappointment? Would it be weird if I said disappointment is a normal thing to experience as long as there are expectations? If there’s one thing that is certain that a person would experience before death no matter how good life is to the person, I’ll say it’s disappointment. This could happen in several ways and at different phases of a person’s life.
Do you know that to change your life, you also need to change your environment?
This post is inspired by the fact that many people are willing to have a better life. In fairness to them, they try so hard but all their efforts are frustrated. They end up feeling like losers. Nobody deserves to feel that way. Not even when you are trying. What then could be the problem? Could they be doing something wrong?
This morning I woke up mumbling positive words to myself. It could be as a result of too much sleep or a not so good dream but it felt like a good way to wake up. So I thought, why not write about positive affirmations.
Everybody looks happy but not everybody is happy genuinely. This is not because they don’t feel like being happy. I mean, everyone wants to be happy but some don’t know that they are deliberately blocking happiness from getting into their lives. They are carrying about burden in their mind and heads so much that they have forgotten how to be happy.
It is painful that we find it very easy to lose our uniqueness and originality in a bid to find acceptance. Often time, we can’t take a stand outside what other people think because we are scared of losing them. Worse still, we go all the way to change what we look like, how we talk, how we dress, how we think to suit what other people think it should look like. It’s painful to watch this happen.
Since we love to relax things a bit on Fridays, I thought we should play the never have I ever game here. What do you say? Even if you say no, we are playing the game and you will participate. Yes, it is by force o.
So I thought I would come up with something else for today but then I saw a post on Instagram that triggered this post. You see all these things that some people refer to as basic, some of us have never experienced them in our lives. There’s no shame at all in this, it was before that I was not proud to say them but now ehn, no shame o. Maybe my anon will even read this post and help me, lol.
Wondering how to increase your level of productivity? I won’t even lie, it has not been easy. I’ve heard people say that blogging is easy because I publish three times a week. So many messages come in from people telling me that I must really have the passion and that’s why I’m really consistent. While some ask if I’m a robot, others ask if I use something to induce my productivity. Let me not deceive you, passion is not enough to keep you consistent. Some went as far as asking me if I’m chasing anything or if anything is chasing me. Lol… Nothing is chasing me, it was just a decision I made to show up for you every time that I need to show up.
So I wrote the topic as if I got these pieces of advice in a very nice way. Far from it guys. I won’t deceive you, they hit me in a very deep place and the normal me would rebel. You know that feeling when you hear something and it stings you? Or maybe you are talking to someone and he says something that slaps. That’s the feeling right there.
This month, we are on a journey to fully crushing procrastination.
Hello there, happy new month. I’m glad you have journeyed with me for three months. Thank you.
Please don’t stop.
We are taking the bull by the horn and smashing our goals this month, no holding back. Do I have a witness? To make the most of the post, you will need to read to the end. If you ever find a need to close this blog post at any point, then you need it more. I love the third point since it has worked for me.
