I’m not in a happy place, something is unsettling and something half done, almost like a cake that didn’t rise in the oven or a cup of coffee turned cold. You know the feeling when you are all alone on a Friday evening and you start reflecting on things that are trivial ( or maybe not!) I’m not many years away from turning 30 so today in a moment of self proclaimed maturity (that comes with age) I’m writing a post full of thoughts that are strolling through my mind as my tea is brewing and the autumn sky is slowly getting darker!
- Don’t waste time!
The older I grow the more I realise how useless it is to waste time, on random people and on complicated emotions, because like time they’ll pass. The chase will soon be over, people will indulge and then go and the feelings will evaporate like alcohol! Yet I know it is inevitable, weeping n sulking on evenings that quickly roll into nights and before you realise you are in your pyjamas preparing for bed.Time is gone!
- Your Confidence
Confidence, is your biggest accessory and the most glamorous one ! She ( yes I believe she’s a female) needs pampering every now and again because people, they can be tiring, with comments in passing and unsolicited indifference ; and it happens to all of us! Wrestle quietly with such people and protect your confidence; trust me, giving up, running away or praying that it never happened, those feelings go away as you get older, because you know it’ll happen, all you need to do is walk through it!
- Know Yourself
Spend time with yourself , more time; and do creative things, take time to know who you are and how much better you can become!
My bedroom is always tidy, my wardrobe is an example of unparalleled organisation, but my handbag, I can never find a thing in it?
I’m confused one moment and determined the other. I sway between confidence and self doubt. My love for snuggling up with my husband on the couch, watching a movie on a Friday night, way surpasses the desire to glam up and go out! I like my quiet holidays on the beach with a book. I like planning things for my blog and my career, it’s safe to say I like planning! And all this is me! A simple humble person with fierce passion to do a lot of things! Someone who has occasional moments of frustration, genuine dissatisfaction, and some sudden surge of emotions but that’s all human.I realise that getting older means getting richer, richer with more accomplishments, more moments to cherish, some joys, some sorrows, more shoes bought, more books read, more marathons run, and more creativity unfolded; so I remind myself, what have we got to worry about? Let’s keep our head held high n let’s just keep hustling like we do!
