a broken heart, rejection mails and a growing faith.
Self-reflection has become a part of my adult life. I…
My blog knows now that I’m not dead 😂. It’s been 6 whole months in 2020 and sometime in March I almost canceled this year. What was there not to cancel? I had my heart broken by Mr X (LIFE LATELY: January Edition) and then the pandemic that had me super paranoid and imagining the worst. Faves! March was a lot believe me and I followed people to shout “cancelled” not knowing that God had something else planned for me. I haven’t written here in forever and it really is a good time to reflect and show off my amazing pictures 😂.
LOVE & RELATIONSHIP: I know I can be extra but this 2020 is the last time I would say “love did me shege” because I’ve learned to hold God closer than ever, I mean my big man didn’t die on the cross for me to cry over someone’s son. It’s safe to say that my last relationship opened my eyes to a lot of things. I’m just laughing at my mother who is asking to see the man in my life, little does she know she introduced him to me, MASTER JESUS. I think the only thing canceled about 2020 is this Mr. X. Also I’ve started reading plans out of my YOUVERSION Bible app, has to be one of my best decisions so far. If you’re my friend and you’ve been using the app effectively without telling me, please go to the window and explain yourself.
CURRENTLY READING: If anyone had told me i’d leave cheesy romance novels or high school teen fiction for self-growth books, I’d have slapped the person hard. If this doesn’t define growth then I don’t know what. The other night I caught myself awake trying to finish Austin Kleon’s “Steal Like An Artist” and this has to be one of my best reads for the year. Most of the books in my phone library was gotten from my Instagram community. I never even pictured myself as someone who would choose e-books over hard copies? Who is this new person abeg, when did I even become so serious? I’m currently reading “Atomic Habits” by James Clear and it’s been a good read so far.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Have I ever been more dedicated to Instagram the way I am now? Uncle Mark has to run me my money!!!! Imagine feeling guilty because I haven’t made a post on Instagram? 😂. It all started after the class I took with Salem Kinging and I stopped searching for my soul mate online and started doing it differently on the gram. Sometimes I read comments there or see people gassing me up in the dm and I’m like so this is how it feels when people love you for being you? I’ve learned to be shameless with my creativity. I put everything out there as long as it makes sense to me. I even started a creative bant on my instastory and I’m writing my first book too 😌. It’s been a long time coming jare. I know you’re excited too. SURVIVING THE NORTH 2: This is the longest I’ve stayed from home and before the interstate travel ban I made a quick dash from Niger State to Abuja. It wasn’t planned but I’ve had the most 3 months here. There’s so much to this 2020 that I just might write a book about. Strange but true, I miss being a teacher and having to go to the radio station. I mean it was always an excuse for me to eat a lot of dates and coconut and have people hype me on air. I have a few months left of my service year and I’m even ready to say I’m done! I need a long hug from my mother because I’ve been through it all. Not eating her food for 6 months? Someone needs to give me an award please.
My 2020 is not even near cancelled because did I add that I can officially say I’ve gained money and experience from being a freelance writer? What’s there not to be grateful about this year, I’m also very paranoid about the virus and I hope you’re keeping very safe?
This is me officially welcoming you to the last half of 2020. What has the first half been like for you?
