A vacation to me means getting away from social media, technology, the hustle and concerns of daily life for just a little bit. However, my darling sister Tosin won’t let me catch my breath.
The result of course is this post. Needless to say, I love this particular one and what it stands for. It’s a good way to reflect and I might as well do this while here on this beautiful beach, with an amazing view sipping on a mojito.
Tosin shared her version of this post here and it’s only right I share mine, i mean it’s life with two tees.
1. I’m currently ACCEPTING that there’s my plan and then there’s God. Drake captured it perfectly in his new song “God’s plan.” Not to go all spiritual on you guys, but for someone that plans her every move a little too much, Life sometimes fucks it all up and there’s really nothing much to do about it but move on. In the end, I do believe God’s plans are always for good.
2. READING the thing around your neck by Chimamanda Adichie. It’s not a full-on novel as every chapter is a different story. I initially loved the idea but not every story is as interesting which messes with my flow.
3. Not to sound cheesy, but I am LOVING my husband. He supports me with every damn thing – it’s almost unreal. Like think of the most basic random shit. My man is at the corner cheering. I love you babe.
4. PRACTICING how to edit pictures. I know Tosin will think i am copying her but I am really practicing this. Ufuoma taught me a lot of tricks and i can’t wait to master them. Y’all gonna learn. Lol
5. LISTENING to “Our fav things” podcast. I love that it’s so light and of course the presenters review some of my guilty pleasure shows. Plus they seem so cool. Lol I’m such a fan girl!
6. PRAYING to master how to manage my emotions. I need to be able to move on from issues better. Gotta figure this out.
7. FEELING thankful. Been going through a lot lately and i am super thankful i can afford to escape from it all for a while.
8. TRYING to accept people for who they are. Not everybody will treat me the way i will treat them and that is ok.
9. HOPING that everything i am working on finally clicks. It’s about time.
10. LEARNING how to take better pictures. Lol
11. INTERESTED in making new friends. I need more amazing girls in my corner. Looking back, I used to be so friendly and open-minded with people, but I quickly realized that it takes quite a lot of effort to balance adulting responsibilities with keeping up with my already existing friends. This might just be why I put in zero effort to make new ones. Also, collaborations! Very important. I’m really interested in collaborating.
