Goal Setting|To-Do List For 2019

For the month of January, I’ve been in a reflective and planning mode. Goal setting for me is essential to having a fulfilling year. So far all my January posts have been geared towards analyzing last year and preparing for this new one.

24 Lessons I Learnt Being 24

2018 was a tumultuous year for me. I learnt a lot being 24. There were some ups and some downs. Looking back, I had way more ups than downs and I’m grateful.

There were times I felt I …

I can’t quite remember the words but the essence was that wasted time can never be regained. A lesson I think we all should learn. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m a devoted advocate for a balanced life filled with equal rest …

Blogmas???

It’s December! It feels surreal. I’ve become one of those people who talk about how fast the year went by. I have so much to tell you and reflect on as the year comes to a close and what better way to do that but to blog every day in December. It’s a tall order but I’m challenging myself in these last 31 days to accomplish a few more things …
