Well hello guys? It’s been a minute! :0 The year is almost coming to a close and my oh my, didn’t that year just go by so quickly? If you sit back an re-look at the life you’ve lived in 2017, Is it a life that you are proud of? Would you change anything? What are the mistakes you’ve made? Have they made you wiser? What have you learnt so far that completely changed your way of thinking and your life? Have you forgiven people who hurt you? We all have someone/ people who broke us at some point in our lives, key for me this year was to let go of that anger and despise I felt towards them. Letting go off that load and letting God has made me a much happier person.
Truth be told, the year has been full of so many growing pains. I’ve learnt how to invest in things I love  and continue to persue my dreams no matter how brutal the road may be sometimes. I’ve become more smarter with my money. I literally budget for every penny nowadays.  I’ve learnt to appreciate the value of friendships and also seen the great importance of giving back to the community. Well, It’s been a minute since we did our  charity visits, but we definitely have something cooking for Christmas.

I’m I proud of the decisions I’ve made this year? Yes, absolutely. I don’t think I’d change anything. Key to growing as a person is making the most uncomfortable decisions in life because that’s when you know how resilient you are. Career-wise? At the beginning of the year, I was in a very very unhappy place with my job. I felt redundant, I felt like I wasn’t maximizing my full potential. I mean I’ve worked in the advertising industry for over 4 years now, I needed a good challenge and God did answer my prayers; With it came a couple of sleepless nights for months which if I look back, I don’t think I’d trade them for anything given how much I’ve grown, learnt and networked over this period.

Last but not least, we have a BABY IN THE CARRIAGE! Wohoo! No I’m not the one preggers, so relax. 😀  I won’t get into the details but I’m super excited for this new chapter of my life where my auntie role will be put to the test 😀  I don’t know if this is where I now throw in my love life status update 😀 well so far so good, I’m loving life. I’m feeling extra confident. I feel sexier. I’m embracing womanhood more than ever especially now that I finally clocked 2…. come on. I ain’t about to reveal my age here guys. Like seriously? 

Anyways, I hope you’ve had a great year and if not, stay positive. Things may tend to take longer but it’s the constant drive, resilience, patoence and motivation to continue reaching for your dreams that will get you to that amazing place you desire to be.

Thanks for reading guys! XO! Love&Lights as always! 🙂
