Goal Setting|To-Do List For 2019

So far all my January posts have been geared towards analyzing last year and preparing for this new one. To close out the first month of the year it only makes sense that I share with you some of the goals I’ve set for the year …

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. All the challenges, failures and triumphs taught me something. I started this post last year with the plan to write a post a day in honour of a lesson I learnt as a 24-year-old in 2018. I hung …

24 Things I Learnt Being 24: Day 8

Disappointment is God’s guidance. I write this one with a heavy heart. I had big plans to ring in my 25 year. After settling on plans months ago it had all fallen apart in a few days.

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 …

Self Care: The Unwind

So you’ve had a long week. Meetings, deadlines and everything else. The two days you have off seemed to be consumed by chores. Adulting is in full swing. But there’s one thing we should always make time for and that’s time to care for our self. Personally, my self care routine consists of a facial featuring a sheet mask or clay mask, quiet Netflix or YouTube session and some yoga …

Adulting Pro Tips: How To Adult Like A Boss

For most millennials adulting is a commonplace term used to define our coming of age journey. As we are immersed into adulthood with the tales of our parents only now coming back to memory because of our present experiences. Thinking to ourselves that if only I had not wished to be older, I’d have enjoyed those workless summers more. Nevertheless we’re here and adulthood is here to stay and while …

How To Handle Being In A Slump

Slump: (as defined by me for the purpose of this blog post) is a difficult period in an individual’s life where all seems to be going wrong and happiness is a far off. Last week I had a chat with a co-worker over lunch and he shared how stressed and anxious he felt because his ambitions weren’t manifesting themselves as quickly as he hoped. As he spoke I couldn’t help …
