I write this post with so many thoughts in my head. Am I really 19? Am I still young? Am I already old? What have I achieved with 18 years of my life? Have I forgotten that 18 is the new 30?( okay that last line is pressure 😂😂).
With all these questions and more in my head, all I can really do is thank God for life and make my remaining years on earth worth living.
While I was 18 (lol was, feels good ah) and before, I got into the university, I started this blog, I started making conscious efforts to become a better person and build my future (and not just only make it a prayer point that my Tomorrow will be alright – I have to consciously make it alright) and I got serious with my relationship with God cause I got the perfect understanding of the rudiments of life.
Now I’m 19.
These are my goals (not pressure goals)
Start a thriving business
Be more consistent on the blog
Read at least one new book every month, starting with – “The purpose driven life” by Rick Warren which I’ll be starting as soon as my exams are over (Follow me on the gram to follow this up- it’ll help you too @derinmama)
Expose my mind and broaden my horizon
Be more open minded and less judgmental
Start a diary session on my blog where I rant my life (may not be so interesting but we’ll be teaching each other – you may be wondering what this freshly 19 year old knows or wants to teach but it’s okay to wonder)
Spend more time with people that matter – few good friends, close family and very wise people.
Be more outgoing – network, mix with people of like and more experienced minds.
I’ll also be
Intentionally surrounding myself with people who are positive, vibrant and life loving.
Finding more ways to have fun.
Doing more things that scare me.
Celebrating the little wins here and there and constantly giving myself the accolades I deserve (only after paying my dues anyway).
I will not be the girl who cannot see the good. Who cannot see her successes before she sees her failures.
I will seek to see myself more clearly. See the whole, forgive the broken, try everyday and give grace everyday.
And with THAT, and in those ways, it is my intention to age well, age gracefully, age abundantly, age positively, and age youthfully. Fingers crossed.
Happy 19th to me!
I’m adulting and it feels good (trying not to believe it’s a scam lmao!).
Thanks for stopping by x
