I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I promised to write this post after Fanzaku had put it up on her blog. She’s a new and amazing blogger. She won my heart and I’m sure she’d win yours too. 😃
Now this is a different post, it’s real time and it gives you a glimpse into what my daily life kinda looks like. So here we go! 🕺🏼🕺🏼
Wearing: My school T-shirt and purple jeans 😏
Wishing: I could have a million dollars to travel the world this year 😏😏
Determined to: to add value to people I meet daily, because life is short and we may not have tomorrow. 💕💕
Crushing on/Admiring: One amazing lady who isn’t afraid to do what she wants. She’s godly, career and family focused and she drinks tea a lot. ☕️🐸
Grateful: for the gift of life these past 25 years. For the friends and family I have who have contributed in making the journey of life sweeter.
Practicing: the art of being more assertive and being open about how I feel instead of bottling stuff up as I would normally do. 🌚
Happy: about my upcoming birthday! Less than 10 days to go! 🕺🏼🕺🏼 Something about birthdays excites me 😁
Craving: really fluffy pancakes and eggs or maple syrup 😍 Kinda the type my friend and I used to make while in school.
Loving: the woman I’m becoming. Every new year freaks me out at first. But I’m becoming more deliberate about the story I want to tell this year. I’m exploring new places, new food, new outfits, and I’m making new new friends. I’m growing, even though sometimes my growth rate feels too slow. I’m however absolutely loving this mid 20s gal that I’m becoming- proud to be different, weird even, sensitive, goofy, and daring (the snake picture says it all).
Worried about: my career life. I find uncertainty a little unsettling. Some days I can see clearly, other days, I’m flying blind. Anxiety oftentimes gets the best of me, but I’m constantly reminded to trust in God and stop leaning on my own understanding (or on reality).
I’m gonna talk a little more about this.
You know faith is a seed that can grow and can also die if not watered properly. I’ve gone through seasons where my faith has been so alive and I’ve gotten lots of things I hoped for. But lately I’ve found myself in situations where the faith thing becomes completely alien to me. Like how do you even start hoping for stuff when the reality is crystal clear. How do you believe there’s a way when the forest is so dense?
I tell you, those are the lowest points a person can reach. Points where one stops hoping or believing.
Little by little I’ve started watering that tinee tiny bit of faith I still have. And the Bible already says that with faith like a mustard seed, we can get mountains to move and they’ll move. So here’s to believing! 🙌🏽🙌🏽
Praying: for the things I’m expecting God to do. For the health of a loved one, and for the lives of many to be saved.❤️
Listening to: the sound of silence. Have you ever noticed how refreshing it could be when all around you is so quiet? It helps me think clearly and recharge my social batteries even faster.😁
Anticipating: asides my birthday of course, I’m kinda anticipating Marvel’s ‘Avengers:End Game’ movie. I didn’t get any closure from Infinity Wars 😂
Reading: “The Defining Decade: why your twenties matter and how to make the most of them now” by Meg Jay. The title kinda tells it all. In order to stop myself from freaking out about my mid 20s, I have decided to read more on how to make the most of it. Interestingly, the movie Mamma Mia 2 also inspired me to take a more exploratory approach this year. So fingers crossed on all I learn from this defining decade 😁
Proud: of the journeys I’ve taken alone and the ones I’ve taken with people. Also proud of how far I’ve come for a 25 year old. I’m also proud of where God is taking me in the next 25years if Christ tarries. Proud of my blog and the consistent readers who believe in me. You guys are the best! ❤️👏🏽
And it’s a wrap!
So tell me, what are you currently doing? Let’s catch up!
PS: I’ve started accepting birthday presents 😂
