F.O.C.U.S; Achieving the Most - (Guest)



For many people, jumping into new projects without finishing the other one is the way to go. They keep having things in their head they want to accomplish. They want to improve on their job, start a fashion business on the side, start a family, link up with a cousin abroad to start importation...They want to do it all so they get into all these and lack the ability to see anyone to completion. At the end of the year, they are left with unfinished goals. But they felt excited at the start; they were motivated at the beginning only for the motivation to wane over time. They move on to other new projects and then the cycle repeats itself.

Life Lessons 2.0 | What Growing Up is Teaching Me.

Peace Itimi, Why haven't you written in so long?  

''I don't have a good enough reason but allow me to try please? Thanks.

...because so much has been going on in my inside. Because I'm growing up and figuring out who I want to be, what I want to do, & why I should bother doing the things I do. Because I have written so much in my thoughts but haven't been able to pen them now; specifically for this blog. Because.... I have been focused on something else. Bla Bla Bla. 
Truth is, I have been too Lazy and a bit distracted but mostly lazy. Forgive me alright? 
To further redeem myself, I have decided not to let another month pass without writing something down; So here it is.'''

I have been reading alot Gosh; {the feeling of light filling your heart and mind as a new revelation, information comes to you. Awesome!!!}. Learning is fun... No matter the subject, learning is fun. 

Anyway, Moving on, this post is a list of some life lessons I have deliberately learnt in last months. Some I picked from books, some from experiences, some I heard in my spirit, some came as a result of deep introspection, some well... 





Enjoy!

Lesson one: Your life is Your Own.

Embrace the uncertain; Start Now (GUEST)

Peace itimi

As humans, we are uncertain about some things like when we may die, who we may meet on the way tomorrow.  Nonetheless, these things are the spice of life like surprises. Sometimes, you feel as though some people were giving a handbook for life, except you. Do you keep waiting for that special moment when you will finally say “yes I’ve made it” and you feel like you're on top of the world?

Why are you waiting? Start now and act. Most times when we keep on waiting for that special moment when we arrive, we may find out that those special moments may never come. Instead, we work to make them happen. If you want to be an excellent speaker or a prolific writer, you don’t have to wait for a special moment—you start writing, speaking and later that moment comes.

I Just want to rant and be vulnerable; Just this once!

I'm scared...
I'm constantly living with fear. Fear of what you may ask? Well, I can’t even explain it. All I know is everyday I leave my house, I'm scared... Every time I begin to work, I'm scared...

I constantly feel my heart beat racing... I'm constantly working to prove those thoughts wrong... I'm just trying not to let fear stop me.

What if I tell you I'm still trying to figure myself out... What if I say, I don't know what I want to do with myself yet. What if I say, I worry too much?

Lol!

Hi there! It’s been a long while... I apologize, I wasn’t consistent on here all year...and recently it got worse. I kept wanting to write but I just couldn’t, most articles got stuck in my head and I’m not one for forcing myself to write plus recently I have been dealing with me and wasn’t really settled enough to write something I felt was going to be good enough for you to read.. yes! I always like to ensure you have a good read. *winks*

Anyway, this post is about my 2015. It’s been my most eventful year YET, I have grown tremendously in all areas of my life and I had awesome and insightful experiences...

What Does Christmas Mean To You?

What does Christmas mean to you?

The quality of a tree is seen in its fruits...but without the planting of a seed, they would be no tree and thus, no fruit... Christmas is the seed planting day...The day Jesus was born into the world, the start of the tree of life, a life free of sin and death and so, Christmas for me its a reminder of the gift of Salvation. The day Christ was born, the day The Word became flesh. The beginning of the end of the rule of sin. The physical expression of the Love of God to humanity.

What does Christmas mean to you?
To me, it means

What to do when you are in The Waiting Period...

 Time waits for no one
There are times in life when the going gets hard. When you try and try but yet nothing is happening. Times when you feel stuck. You feel you should have passed through that phase but you are not moving yet. Recently I felt like that. I wrote my last undergraduate exam August 28, 2015 and almost three months after I haven’t defended my project, just because my department is slow and annoying.  I began to feel angry at a time, because I had things lined up that I wanted to do, and had had to pass out on opportunities just because I’m technically not done with school and so cant officially relocate yet. I was mad for awhile, but then I let it go because it was no use using up my energy for something I had no power over.  Anyway a friend called me one day and in a bit to console me, was saying how he strongly feels that this is a waiting period and that I’m strongly feeling stuck for a reason. At that time I didn’t want to agree because it was just project defense (which in my mind was my department fault and nothing else).  Fast forward to five days later,

To fall in love is the greatest of all

When I’m in love with someone, the person slowly becomes the most important person in my life. It makes me ‘stupid’ because I pay attention too much; making sure that nothing I do upsets him. He smiles, I smile. He gets moody, I get moody. There are lots of people I love in my life but when I’m in love, it’s different. I love you and may not want to spend all day with you or all night talking to you. I love you but if I piss you off, I may just run away until you get over it. I love you and I may not think about you when I’m making my plans or choices. But it’s different when I’m in love because for everything I do, I think of how it affects him.

What I want in a Man.

I want to crazy or intelligent long conversations - depending on the mood we are in.
I want to feel safe, I want to feel special.
I want to feel challenged and driven to do more, to be more everyday.
I want to get turned on by just seeing you.
I don't want drama, I don't normal.
