Currently listening To Folabi Nuel’s Everlasting and eating Eba and Ogbono soup.
How are you all doing? I have been doing good but I believe I could be better. Why did I say that?
Well, I began 2017 with high hopes, plans and dreams. Some of the things I said I would do for myself this year is to start a blog and also take my professional Exams in Public relations. I have started both of them but I still can’t find fulfilment. I’m totally enjoying my Public relations classes and I think this year is the best year for me to take this class because if I had taken it in 2013 or 2014, I wouldn’t have valued it like I do now.
On the blogging part, I started a blog because I wanted an avenue to pour my heart out and just write anything I would ordinaryly not write or talk about but I think the excitement is gradually drying up becasue I’m afraid of venturing deeper into the world I love so much.
Yes, I love fashion, style and beauty but I think I’m undermining myself. The fear of taking risks and what would people say has been stopping me from being the best I can be when it comes to these things. I grew up under a teaching that holds people’s view about you very high. So adventure in respect to clothe styling, travelling and beauty were things that lived only in my head. I dare not make so much fuss about what I love to be.
I thought studying theatre arts would be an escape route but I lived in fear even though I was far away from home. By the time I realised that nobody but me could decide what and Who I wanted to be I was already out Uni.
To stop making excuse as to why I can’t attain excellence,
To stop being afraid of failing/ falling
To stop being worried about people perspection of me
To stop seeking people’s approval
To stop looking at myself as inferior
Start embracing myself and all my flaws
Start utilising every opportunity that comes my way
Start accepting compliments and drop mediocrity in the valley so that I can move on to a Higher Ground like a QUEEN because EXCELLENCE is my HALLMARK
