Hey everyone, last month my life was boring. It took me by surprise that even though it was early on in the new year when everything should be exciting and buzzing, I found that my life was boring. It’s not that I didn’t have goals or plans, I was very expectant about what God is going to this year. However, I felt my life was … Continue reading My Life Is Boring
What I think it would be like and what it actually ends up like is very different. There is usually a large gap between the two points of expectation and experience. High expectations can produce an underwhelming experience; simply because your excitement had created something large in your mind and what was infront of you was fine in size, but not to the vastness you … Continue reading The Gap Between Expectations and Experience
This year I decided to get a little selfish about looking after myself. The step I have taken is to put boundaries in place in my life so I do not crash and burn suddenly. My mental and emotional stability is so important. I am constantly pushing it to the back and never really dealing with my needs which lead me to a slump. I … Continue reading Validation = Needed = Love
Have you ever felt the pressure from watching eyes? Family, friends and even strangers looking at your life; telling you their opinions and advice on what they think it should look like, but mostly just watching to see if you make it. Pressure can come from different sources, it can be good and bad so that’s why I don’t completely hate it, but I don’t … Continue reading If No One Was Looking Would You Still Feel The Pressure?
If I have to be someone else to get it then it’s not worth it. If the only way is through pretending and lying I will choose another option. I have lost myself before, accepting ways I did not believe. Emptiness and darkness consumed me. Selling my soul for status, Losing my peace for money. It cost too much to follow a road that is … Continue reading I Will Be Me
Comparison is a big issue that knocks me down. I could be feeling great, suddenly I think about someone and what they have then look back at my own and feel low about my situation. When I don’t leave the thought quickly and let it take room in my soul, I get filled with other negative emotions such as bitterness and jealously. I have even … Continue reading Who Are You Measuring Yourself Against?
Hey everyone, if you’ve read some of my pervious posts you will find that I have mentioned that last year did not end well for me. ‘Blind-sided and caught off guard’. When I talk about it, I describe it as a sudden attack; but it was not. I was knocked down unexpectedly because I did not look underneath the surface, I had false hope without … Continue reading I Didn’t See It Coming In 2017 and Who I Want To Be In 2018

Hey everyone, as the New Year is getting close I like some of you are reflecting on the past year. I do not want to keep taking the same lessons next year, so I decided to look back on what I learnt this year and make some notes. These notes will help me prepare for the future because it will act as a reminder when … Continue reading Notes From 2017
I thought I would live a life of just trying to get by, doing my best to make something out of every day; I did not expect much and would have been fine to live in my own little world. I did not want more; more seemed out of reach. Till one day I had a dream and I was exposed to something special … Continue reading Glimpse, I Thought I Saw A View Of Flowers
