It’s A New Year


It’s been a hectic journey all through 2015. A lot has happened some which I wished for, some which I didn’t. I may not be where I thought I would be by the end of 2015 but I’m happy. Happy that I made it to 2016, healthy and strong. Thankful to God for his continued mercies and blessings. Grateful to my friends and family for their support and love.

2015 has been a good year full of lessons, which I’m going to be sharing in a few. The lessons are meant to set us off in embarking the 2016 journey.

1. Patience.
Things don’t work out in a blink of an eye, Rome was not built in one day. Have some patience as you start doing something. If it’s a business you plan to start this year, be patient don’t expect it to pick up in two days.

2. Live.
Unwind from work and worries, spend more time with family and friends. Take time to appreciate the people in your life. Live a life with no regrets. While you are used to taking care of others, treat yourself once in a while. What’s the point of working so hard and not creating time for enjoying the fruits of your labour.

3. Learn.
Don’t assume you know everything. Give yourself room for learning new things and even trying them out. We live to learn and to upgrade.

4. Love.
Love more hate less.
Be passionate about what you do. Love your job, love your body, love yourself and the good people around you.

5. Forgive.
As you move to 2016, make peace with yourself, make peace with those you’ve hurt, forgive those who have hurt you. Holding onto grudges will only eat you up like ulcers. Let’s have a year full of joy and peace.

6. Pray.
At the end of the day we all have a belief. I believe in prayers. I believe in God. I find comfort in prayers. Pray for God’s strength, guidance and blessings. You are not in control, God is. Always remember to thank Him for his goodness.




7. Discipline.
If there’s one thing I’ve  come to learn since I started blogging is how to discipline myself on how I should spend my time and money. Being discipline is having self-control over feelings, desires and emotions.
If you don’t need it, don’t buy it. Respect your schedule, if you’ve set your alarm @6a.m wake up at 6a.m. Avoid procrastinating. Avoid overspending on things that don’t matter. Make time for those who deserve it. Only make sacrifices for something that is worth it.

8. Perception.
It all starts with our mindset. “Never say that you can’t do something, or that something can’t be done, no matter how discouraging or harrowing it may be; human beings are limited only by what we allow ourselves to be limited by: our own minds. We are each the masters of our own reality; when we became self aware to this; absolutely anything in the world is possible.”

Allow yourself to grow, grow yourself to be better than you were last year. Take risks nothing comes easy. If there’s one thing you should fear is being stagnant.

10. Time.
Set some time aside for relaxation and meditation. If things are not working right, take some time out, retrace your steps and think of new ideas.

Failing to plan is planning to fail. Set out plans, write them down and give yourself a target, something to work for. Targets will give you that push and drive.

Instead of waiting, let it find you when you are ready. Sharpen the iron while still hot.
