Celebrating another year of blogging

On August 1st of 2014, I braved all sentiments of fear and the unknown, mustered up my courage and hit “Publish” for the very first time on my blog. You can read all about it here. – It’s been a relatively long journey, but each year brought me closer to my dreams and goals.

There were times when I asked myself the million dollars question: Is it all worth it? The challenges, the hard work, the investments, the critics, the No’s, the late night sleep, etc… and every time the answer was a resounding “Yes!”. So here I am, celebrating another milestone.

If there’s one or maybe 2 things I will leave you with after reading this post, it’s to go after your dreams, no matter how hard, how little, or how ridiculous they seem. You will never know how far you can go if you give up or don’t give it a try.

There will be naysayers (read this post), but their opinions aren’t your business; Or you could be your very own demise (Read this post)… That been said, Be good and true to yourself, know what you want, work for it, and be consistent.

There’s no elevator to success, so yes you must do the work, whether it’s in the physical or the spiritual. Be prepared to do the work and most importantly, be prepared to face challenges. Oh and one more thing! Do not compare your journey to others’.

We are all on different paths and divine assignments. It may take one year for you to get to where you want to be, but it could take 10 years to the other person. A lot goes into it; and each person’s definition of success is different.

Be inspired by someone you like or whose journey you’re following. Heck! Reach out and ask for advice if you must, but remember that comparison is the thief of joy; and nothing good comes out of it.

Believe and do the work!

Cheers!🥂target-stripes-off-shouder-top

    Am I too late to say congratulations? I hope not!! You are doing such a great job and your posts are always such high quality. Here’s to another year!! I honestly thought this was a dress, it could certainly pass for one and you look really good in it too. Your shoulders look beautiful! I love the second picture, so so pretty and your dark hair really suits you. Where were these pics taken? looks like a sculpture park. Are you a fan of art? x x x
