I have been thinking quite deeply about 2016 and how far I have come from last year. Last year, I was in a really different zone from where I am this year. I was on a “self-discovery” journey (yep, believe it or not). There was so much I wanted to become, things I didn’t like, habits formed, Knowledge to be gained, Organisational needs and the list goes on.
Believe me guys, that state of identifying all you want to change and things you want to achieve is the biggest progress ever!! If you are reading this post and you have a long list of things you want to do and things you want to change and things you want to learn more of : “Congratulations!! This state in itself is more progress than you even realise.Your journey is ready to begin”.
In my case, last year, following a critical assessment of my life, I was armed with the knowledge of where I wanted to implement changes and habits I wanted to form as well as what needed to be done to achieve this. I slowly began my journey, gearing my actions to align with my wants. “Was it hard?! Oh yes, how I struggled!”. Some days, I felt like I was making no progress. I fell back into old cycles and felt dejected and defeated.
Still, the next day always came with fresh possibilities and I started off once more in my journey towards becoming.Guess what guys?? It is still a struggle but today I can very happily say I am actually more than 60% better than I was last year! How awesome is that??It may be a slow and sometimes really difficult journey but you are making progress, shaping up slowly and steadily. Never give up, you are on the right path.
It all begins with a heartfelt critical self -assessment and a deep and burning need to be the best “you”, you can possibly be. In all areas of life, whilst staying prayerfully consistent!
I shall end this post with images of me very happily pictured in a dress by a Nigerian brand called Iamisigo. I love a legitimate neutral palette!

Have a fantastic weekend all!
