What better way to start the month then a reflection piece. Let’s just jump into it shall we?
Loving life again. I was more than overwhelmed. I was doing 4 jobs. I AM still doing four jobs. I do data entry for my father and for an accountant, I have inteco and my recent job (I shall share all this later ). There was a point I was running between jobs like a mad woman. It was the equivalent of someone playing all the positions in rounders (or baseball).
I started feeling detached and zombie like. Thinking about feelings and where I was mentally was never a factor. I just did not have time for that. Quickly, I became second priority.
I am learning a lot. Firstly, there is a lack of mental health conversation going on. We are so used to mental health referring to the abnormal but, what about ways to maintain your mental health? (actually I will write about it).
I am marvelling at the conversation I am having with my age mates. We now talk about paying taxes and been able to register a business. How we have grown.Speaking of adult conversations I am thinking about personal financial plans. I am getting bombarded with terms like financial goals. Learning about all this has been an eye opener. If you would like I will share that journey with you (who am I kidding I will still share that journey anyway).
I am going through a process of healing. I am for healing and getting resolution internally. If someone has hurt me I do not need to confront them instead I look within. April was a month of healing. I wrote down all the negativity I had and then burned the paper. It was so therapeutic and I am in such a better place because of that.
I am grateful for the blessings I have received in March and April. I am even more grateful I cultivated a sense of gratitude when I had nothing. It makes the blessings ten times better. I have been training myself when I pray to give thanks to God rather to ask for things.
I am currently planning my first holiday. I keep asking myself do I really need to spend x amount on a holiday? I am coming around to it. Although, I do not feel as if I need a holiday.
I am eagerly waiting for Akili Dada’s training this week. I get to learn something about my business from a different perspective and that is always a treat.
I want to start focussing on myself and making myself priority number one. I let that ball drop but, it is not to late.
I am very proud that I have been keeping up my new years resolution for the most part except for my personal health and education. Those will be my focus point in May.
