HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Boy boy boy, 2017 was a year of goals and expectations for me. I had hoped 2017 would be better than 2016 and made my routine new year resolutions.
One year later, I can proudly say that even though I didn’t attain all my goals, many things didnt work out as I had hoped, I lost some friends and family and had my fair share of crying, I still came out better and stronger.
I refuse to view 2017 as a bad year because a lot of good things happened in my life. I made amazing memories with new friends at my IT place such Joy who introduced me to Jamie Grace , then there’s Nnamkere our MMA feminist and the girl who made me fall in love with Joy Isi Bewaji ( I always look forward to her rants on Facebook).
I went for TedxDiscoveryParkWomen which was amazing –I wrote about my experience HERE and I wouldn’t have known Ekettite Edinma who is a terrific writer and she also has a blog which is full of humor, you won’t be able to stop laughing( Link to her blog HERE ).
It was my year of Freedom and Growth. I perfected my hair dressing and culinary skills, I learnt positivity even in bad situations , my spirituality was popping and my walk with God grew to another dimension, I practiced writing my vision down ( don’t forget Octavia Butler wrote her dreams into existence)
That 2017 I attended a celebrity wedding..yes o..#BAAD2017( LOL I attended it through Instagram o).
It was still this same 2017 that I heard that there was still slavery in Africa precisely at Libya…this was so disheartening to hear.
*Raises glass to 2017: A year that changed me and gave me passion This was the first quote I saw 2018 that helped me start the new year👇
2018 won’t be better than 2017 if you don’t do things differently- Joy Isi Bewaji
The power to make 2018 a good year lies solely in my hands and I plan to fully exercise that power. Sure there’d be ups and downs but thats’s just life and it’d serve as a learning experience for me.
P.S: I didnt take any personal pictures to insert here. Don’t worry I plan on getting better at my pishure taking to create memories this year. Happy new year!
