If you’re reading this, it means 13th May is finally here and I eventually hit publish on this post(I wasn’t so sure I was going to publish it) .
It’s been an interesting year so far for me and even though I don’t feel like it sometimes, I know I’ve grown up quite a bit more. When I say grow up, I mean in all ramifications.
As a creative, I’ve worked with more brands than I did last year and with working with them, I’ve been able to learn a lot more on branding and public relations .
As a friend, I’ve learnt, and is still learning to reach out more to my friends and show them genuine care and affection. After all, love is in the “showing”.
My personal relationship with God has been such a journey that I won’t trade for anything.
My relationship with my family is still awesome thankfully and they keep supporting my actions and decisions.
This past year, I’ve had to learn, relearn and unlearn a lot of things. The unlearning part has been such a chore but one I have to do to move forward.
One thing I’m relearning is the act of using my gratitude jar. Each day, I write about something I’m grateful for and put it into my jar. This helps me in times I feel low and unmotivated. (Reading the things I’ve written helps bring me out of such mood.) It works for me so I’m sure it will work for you too when you start.
Having known the law of actions and consequences, I’m relearning to be more intentional about all decisions I take.
As I clock a new age today, I’m super grateful to everyone that has in one way supported or encouraged me to become better. I won’t say I’m overtly excited about today, it just reminds me that I’m growing older and I have dreams and aspirations that are yet to be fulfilled.
Over the past weeks, I’ve been trying to sober reflect on the journey so far. I’ve had to ask myself some deep questions about being on the right course (because really, as a creative, it’s easy to lose sight of where you’re headed and be lost in the crowd .. A lot of things can cause this, including the society).
My special gift to you reading this is a piece of advice. As individuals, we should always review our decisions career wise. Don’t leave anything to chance, have short term plans and long term goals. It helps keep you in check when you deviate into another track.
Also, don’t be too hard on yourself when you make mistakes, we’re human and mistakes are inevitable. Rather, learn from it and move on to the next phase.
The answers I’ve gotten so far from my sober reflecting moments haven’t been entirely all that i expected but thankfully, it will help shape this new year for me.
As everyone celebrates with me and send their sincere wishes, don’t forget to pray for me. I need your prayers the most.
Thank you all for loving me, thank you for all you do. I don’t take the care and love for granted. This new year, we’re making more money moves 🤸🏾♀️and growing all round.
