It feels like forever since i last posted. This year it was one of my goals to consistently upload content to my Blog/YouTube channel…a goal which i have successfully FLOPPED at to say the least. But anyways, i thought it was high time i break the silence and fill you all in with a little Life Update.
The truth is I’ve been on a little journey of self discovery, not exactly by choice mind you. This year, life has been majorly impacted by various events, leading to some serious soul searching, and a genuine desire to get my act together.
Dealing with a loss
Death. Life’s harsh reality in reminding us that nobody is promised tomorrow. I know this subject is quite bleak and that’s why i pretty much wanted to address it first and get it over with. As some of you may know from reading my last post, I’ve been dealing with the loss of my Nan. From frequent visits to my Nan’s care home in Milton Keynes to suddenly finding the words to pay tribute at her funeral…Life simply changed. It’s been a hard period in mine and my family’s life. I seem to have grasped the concept of death more over the past two years than ever before in my life! But still…we go on. No, I’ve not mastered how to ‘deal with it’ nor would i say ‘I’ve moved on’… i’m simply learning how to push on, despite the pain.
Hungry for Success
All i can say is that now, more than ever before…i am Hungry for Success. Every once and a while life has a funny way of reminding you that you really are stronger than you feel. Sometimes, it takes battling through a tough situation to reveal that inner strength…and i don’t know about you, but the more i’m coming to grips with my inner warrior… its pretty much game over for fear.
I Came to Win
No, i’m not bigging myself up. Nor am i saying that i’m about to take over the world (don’t doubt my abilities though okurr)… but what i am saying is that at this stage in my life, something great is generating in my journey. Power.
I’m making I Make a conscious effort to tap into my strengths daily. Whether it be as little as stating positive affirmations in the morning (stating positive facts about yourself, e.g ‘I am brave, i am powerful…etc) to facing fears and pushing past my anxiety. I am only as great as i allow myself to be…and who says that the limitations have to be capped so tightly?
Whether you are a ‘Faith without works is dead’ or ‘Hard work beats talent if talent doesn’t work hard’ type of person, know this…it still takes stepping out in order to reach your goals. And i don’t know about you, but i think i’d prefer to run towards mines!
How did this post turn into a little preachathon btw? I think it’s been brewing inside of me for quite some time now that i just need to Do Better. Not just speak it, not just advise it…but actually do better. You can call it having an epiphany, but at my big age of 24 (bruuuh) I’ve just got to the point where i’m ready to disrupt the norm.
Be your own Cheerleader
Sometimes, you really have got to be your own cheerleader in this life. Yes, i have supportive people around me and yes the motivational talks are laaavely, but i can’t depend on others to get me to the next stage. If you want to advance to your purpose in life, whatever it may be…then its time to Level up.
Procrastination and coasting were two of my biggest culprits, i’ll be honest. But being successful and making my Nan proud is a combined force not to be reckoned with. I dare you to go ahead and try though, just for lols.
