2017 Was a Roller-coaster but 2018 will be Great –Happy Holidays LD Readers!!!

Wow, it’s been two weeks since my last post. I’m so sorry guys, a lot have been going on – from some of my post you would know I’m mostly in control of things around the house and no! I am not married yet but I’m dealing with my mum and siblings. In other words, I give my mum a break during the festive seasons and take care of the cooking and things that needs to be fixed (hmmm, not just festive season for this one). Anyhow, I hope to make it up to you next year, yep! Just few hours to 2018 (started writing this post at 8:08pm -Nigerian time).

I just want to say 2017 have been a roller-coaster for me; from hooking up with my Jehovah witness ex to a guy that was crushing on me in school, to losing my job, starting a business, having a thing with my neighbor (why have I not written this post yet?), meeting perverts in the name of jobs, attending a make-up school where they were unprofessional to moving back to my mother’s house with no job or money. Yeah, it was something! But you know the funny thing? I am still every hopeful. Yes I know, I say that every year but I have a good feeling about this one. I’m not going to lie to you, losing my job twice was frustrating and demoralizing and it became worse when I moved to my mum’s house ( I don’t know if its cause to see a vehicle out of the estate was difficult or I wasn’t just motivated)  but I finally chose courage and determination and I’m working towards getting back in shape, writing more and applying for jobs.

Due to what I experienced this year, I gave up on a lot, including myself –my health precisely and its affecting how I work (from home of course) ,so what I hope to do next year is;

Exercise and eat right
You know I really let myself go this past few months and it took quite a toll on me; I’ve become so heavy and lazy, my clothes still fit surprisingly (maybe it’s because they were a little bigger when I got them, I don’t know) but my weighing scale is telling me otherwise, my knee hurts and when I climb up the stairs I pant a lot. This is not good for a young lady in her early thirties like me, so I have to do something about it. Therefore, I’ll be exercising for at least thirty minutes every day which is great if combined with a clean diet (but boy! are fruits expensive?! – I do my best on this part) ;vegetables ,fruits ,healthy snacks, lots of water, sleep well, no sugary drinks, more protein, less carbs and so on… you know the drill.

Wake up Early
This should be the first thing right since I have to get up early to exercise, lol. Anyways, I have to take this one really seriously. Though I am a night owl and it makes me sleep throughout the day, I have to find a way of being a morning person.  You know most successful people are morning people? And I want to be successful so I have to start acting like one. I’m sure y’all know waking up early have so many benefits; you get things done more when you wake up early and in my case that I share a room with my sister and she can be quite annoying and distracting, she sleeps through the morning sometimes and waking up early would enable me do more before she wakes up. Some of you might be your kids, spouse or what not. So trust me, if you don’t have any New Year resolution, if you can do this next year, a lot will change in your life – in a good way.

Be more spiritual

Yes I go to church, say my prayers and fast sometimes but it’s not enough. Everybody has what get them through their day and for me is having my peace – which involves my relationship with God. I’m not where I need to be spiritual and I let a lot of things get in my way; if it’s not my relationships with men, it’s friends, my job  or one thing or the other but in 2018 I hope that will change.  I hope to be closer to God because He is the author and finisher of my faith.

Write more/ publish often
Ah, this one cannot be overemphasized. You all missed me this few weeks right? I missed you all too and I felt sad that I could not share and post some stories with you. Next year would be different; I think my problem is I always want to publish long post and that’s why it takes like a week before I share a post. I guess what I would do know is post what I want to regardless of the length so y’all can hear from me more often. What do you think? Let me know if that is fine too.

Learn to let go
This is so me but I am leaving it behind this year. Not letting go have cost me a lot of time that I cannot take back. Whether it’s moving on from an ex, getting angry over silly things, seeing things that are wrong and always having something to say about it. Well, all that will stop this year… you know why? They take a lot of my time and energy which in the process I lose myself sometimes. So, I definitely need my sanity in 2018 to be able to become the successful entrepreneur I am meant to be.

Though I know I’ve been MIA for a while, it won’t be like that in 2018. I will try as much as I can to post as often as I should (everyday by God’s Grace). You know your girl needs a job? So I’m going to be very busy next year but it won’t stop me from sharing my ridiculous, funny and awkward stories that you enjoy from time to time. I just want to thank you all for reading this blog and staying true to it even with my disappearance. So this is me wishing you a belated Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. I pray that your great dreams come true and I wish your family well. Please no matter what challenges or trials and tribulations you are facing, just know that “THIS TOO SHALL PASS”. No matter what you do, don’t give up on yourself; if you fall, get back up, keep moving, keep pushing. Shot out the loud voices and listen to your heart. 2018 is looking bright, are YOU ready? I know I am.

How to leave a toxic job when you don't have another lined up

The indicators of a poisonous relationship are typically the same, whether it's with a partner, friend, or family member: your views and opinions are not valued, you're the only one ready to compromise or put in work to improve the connection, and you continuously feel like you're walking on eggshells. It may have a significant impact on your mental health and well-being, as I just discovered firsthand. My toxic connection, however, was not with a love partner or a friend; it was with my job.   The term "toxic jobs" refers to unfavourable work settings that put a burden on employees' mental health. These environments often feature abusive managers, discriminatory or harassing conduct, heavy office politics, and a climate of gossip or rivalry.   And these settings are more frequent than you would think: according to a 2020 Emtrain poll, 41% of employees do not believe their company would take a harassment report seriously, and 29% had left a job due to workplac

Happy New Year in Advance

Hello everyone, Incase I have not said happy New Year in advance. Happy New year!!! Ugh, a lot of things happened to me this year 2022; I lost my younger brother in January , quit my job in May and quit the new one in October. I met some cool people and lost some. I went through an emotional roller coaster and my blood pressure got really high. There is a lot to unpack here but I really don’t feel like writing about it. Yes that is another thing; I have not been feeling like writing anything since I started staying at home again. I don’t feel like seeing people or going out. Been thinking of how to make money without having to go to work six days a week every single morning, facing Lagos traffic and all the crazies that come with 9 to 5. I feel hung-over typing this - tried to write articles every day but that didn’t work out, keep questioning myself if I am a good writer and why is it taking me this long to write something.   Two days ago, I was really upset and just irritated. You kn

When you don't know what to do

Sometimes when we feel stuck and lost, we just assume that every other person is doing better than us. That is not true. Most times when we don't know what to do, it simply means that we are overwhelmed. First of all, what do you want to do? Because most times we don't have anything to do but we feel like we should be doing something. Therefore, make sure you stay away from social media; except you are watching comedy on YouTube, DO NOT check your social media! My simple and short answer for if you don’t know what to do would just be not to do anything at all. You can only do something that needs to be done. If there is nothing to do, you can’t do anything about it. Have you heard of the phrase, let go of what you can’t change? Then you should practice that, cause holding on to something you can’t do anything about will cause anxiety, depression and exhaustion. So why look for what is not there? You have to be specific about what it is you want to do, that is the only way you c
