The Year That was

2015 has been a year like no other. Well, I know, no two years are the same but the emotional roller coaster I have experienced was beyond what I could have prepared for but, the Lord is faithful and here I am, almost at the finish line and I am every inch grateful.

I didn’t write much this year. I compared myself too much and forgot why I started writing in the first place and ended up losing my mojo. But it was a good break too. I got to read other blogs and enjoy other writers’ work and found inspiration. Bottom line is, I cannot write like anyone else and no one else can write like me. So when I stop myself from writing because I am afraid I will not be as good as… Then I am not doing myself and my words any justice. No wonder they just freeze.

Finding my voice was important and I think our paths crossed again so I will write more in this coming year. Freely. With no reservations and enjoy this beautiful gift.

I have also watched more series and movies this year than at any other time in my life I believe. I need rehab, lol. Or I just need to buy a music system so that I can substitute TV with music. I do love music. I think I have a good enough voice.I digress.

I was cast in an ad. And yes, it was on my bucket list. It was for an account I am working on but yeah, that happened. Next step is to be on a billboard. It surprises me every time you know, how God answers some of those requests I don’t necessarily make directly. I guess He does know the desired of my heart.

And that’s the other thing, God and I will need a number of Father-daughter bonding sessions come 2016. I walked away from Him somewhere. Yes, we are the ones who always move. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. We on the other hand… It’s a good thing He loves me anyway. Not to take His grace for granted, I need to make amends and go back home where love is waiting for me.

This post wouldn’t be complete without me talking about love. Well, I got engaged for like 3 months and then it ended. That was crazy. But then it happened and I’m back on the single lane. A few interests on the horizon but who knows and I don’t want to force anything. I think the thing about love is that it works best when two hearts meet and they want the same thing.

Wait, wait. Marketing, my other sweetheart. I am planning to pursue it fervently in 2016. To build my professional brand as a marketer and to do awesome things in that regard. In the same breadth, I need to jump start my project for sanitary towels and mentorship programs. A long time coming. I just need to start; take the first step and the rest will follow. ‘What is that in your hand?’ God will always use what you have not what you don’t have. Word.

Okay, I promise, now I’m winding down. I intend to do some travelling in 2016. Locally and internationally. I will become a backpacker; I think it’s the best way to experience a new place. Not staying at a five star hotel but by all means if that’s your poison, no judgements here.

I simply plan to take charge of my life in 2016 and not just sit back and wait for things to happen to me.
