Empower - Love Yourself




Happy New Year!

How I have missed you all so much. I know it’s already February but I feel like the year has just started for me and I am finally getting it together. Anyone feel that way?

Hope you all had a beautiful holiday and an amazing month of January (which felt like 7 weeks) Lol... Let me catch you all up on what I’ve been up to. I traveled back home to Nigeria in October of 2017 and was there for 3 months (I know) but I loved it because I was able to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday, spend time with family, which is so important to me and rekindle friendships. Most importantly, this trip helped me press the reset button on life and my purpose.

How you ask?

Growing up in Nigeria all I wanted to do was see the world and inspire women to be unapologetically themselves but somehow I lost that along the way. I got carried away with trying to fit in, trying to follow trends as opposed to just being myself (my truest self).

So, if you’re like me who sometimes feels like you’re losing grip on what’s important, because I know we can’t always travel home. Take a minute to breathe easy and stop yourself from falling. Then get a piece of paper and write down the things you want to accomplish, what’s the dream? What’s the end game? When you have an end game it’s easier to stay on track and not get distracted. Then ask yourself, does this contribute to that? If it doesn’t, then it’s time to let it go. You will gradually begin to see yourself weed through the not so important stuff to get to what’s key. Prioritize.

Another thing that has worked for me is at the beginning of this year I decided not to have any new year’s resolutions because they pressure you into wanting to accomplish everything at the same time (because there’s a timeline) which can be a good thing for some people but if you’re like me it becomes overwhelming.  And when I get overwhelmed I am less productive. So, I decided to stick with setting monthly goals. Focusing on one thing at a time and not doing too much which then results in having so many unfinished projects.

This month I am challenging us to set one goal and accomplish it without fear or doubts. Like my uncle used to tell me fear is,

F = False
E = Experience that
A = Appears
R = Real

Let’s go crush these monthly goals!

Written with compassion.

  5. Beautiful post! I also struggle with focus on my purpose/vision. This year will be challenging for me because I am trying to seize a lot of opportunities so I hope I don't get lost in the process. I am trying to set up a positive morning routine and I hope it can help me stay on track mentally.
    Good luck! :)

  6. I seriously feel exactly the same! I had a tough time getting it together throughout January! It's so amazing how a trip can really reset things for you. A similar thing happened to me this past month, and it really helped me get myself in gear. I know I want to write, so I have been trying to work hard on that so I can live the life I want and inspire others. You have a great voice though, and I'm sure that you'll be able to do what you dreamed of too. <3
