Safe to say HAPPY YEAR 2020 and I pray this year brings us nothing but bliss, positivity and serenity.
I really miss doing this !! Looks like I’ve been gone for years
Currently listening to EMO Grae ft Buju – 0903
(The song is fire and you should listen. If you don’t like it, I’m buying you a MIFI instead of returning your mb)😏
2019 was a rollercoaster of emotions. I parted ways with things, old bad habits, and so many things that if mentioned, won’t fit into this blog post.
It was a great year because I grew, experienced life changing moments and became aware of certain things I’d normally not pay attention to.
Of course things majorly didn’t go as planned for me and that’s alright.
Describing my 2019 in a picture :
Picture is quite explanatory.
So far, 2020 has been puzzling. It’s like you don’t know what to expect because this adult phase is an insane phase and things will catch you by surprise so you either adapt to whatever situation or you don’t survive at all. (The real gbas gbos) . I’m sure we all have our resolutions set already so I’m not gonna be cliché.
Really optimistic and looking forward to what this year has to offer .
I’m also doing my best to make my blog post more about lifestyle and personal experiences so its relatable to everyone.
2020 is for self love, amen?
As regards to self love, I recently truly learnt that “THEY WILL LOVE YOU WHEN YOU LOVE YOU”
I’ve been seeing/hearing related quotes and all of that but this hits differently and I think it’s because the second half of last year I was terribly battling with my mental health and myself.
I allowed self doubt deal with me, I allow life take charge of me instead of the other way.
I watched motivational videos about self love discovery and read articles online just to make sure I get better and I’m here to share them with you. (Might not work for you because we are different individuals but regardless…)
No 1 for me would be understanding my MENTAL HEALTH because that was/is everything.
1. Learning more about your mental health
Mental health is a topic people barely want to discuss because it’s usually too personal but before you can love yourself, you have to identify/tackle things that can affect your mental health and try the very best to avoid them. Mental health is a very delicate but important issue because it defines every human behavior (good or bad).
Let’s take a break, did you know you can’t breathe and swallow at the same time?😟
2. Put yourself first in EVERYTHING
If you’re to make a decision, you come first. Sounds selfish but ask your self “would it favor me? What will I gain? Is this good for my health? “ If the situation favors the other party more than it did you, please walk away.
3. Do things that’ll make you happy
So many exciting things to do:
•start a craft or invest in something you’re really good at.
•go see a movie by yourself.
•learn a new language.
•go swimming. If you can’t swim like me, learn.
•if you can afford to travel around, please do.
•stop being hard on yourself, it’s okay to make mistakes.
•take a break, write down your feelings/thoughts.
•watch comedy videos on YouTube or videos relating to your niche.
•pamper yourself (buy new stuff, try new foods, just be free)
4.Be unapologetic about being yourself
I’m sorry I won’t be sorry about everything/anything that makes me feel good. Do it for you, stop thinking about what people would say. It’s hard but they’ll talk regardless so why not favor YOU?
There’s light at the end of the tunnel. 🤍🖤
Love always, xoxo🖤
