I started writing this post on the 4th of January due to my increasing concern that, although I really really wanted to do this, I just couldn’t. You see, I fear that I’ve forgotten how to write. And as I write this, I remember that writing actually made me happy… and yet I can’t seem to make those words flow like I used to.
2016: My year of learning
How to write again
How to speak French
How to swim
How to travel (alone, if need be)
How to make consistently smart financial decisions
How to truly forgive myself and move on from my many regrets
I figure there are some things on my to-do list that are way overdue and there is no time like the present to get them done. After all, I’m not getting any younger. 😦
2016: My year of ticking off overdue goals.
Finally get my full UK drivers license
Finally qualify as a solicitor (I qualified as barrister/solicitor in Nigeria in 2006. I feel like a decade later is kind of a befitting time to become properly dual qualified, no?)
Finally actively get involved with volunteering/charity work (see it’s always been one of my dreams to own an NGO/run a soup-kitchen, how I have never actually actively done ANY charity work is beyond me. And this must change this year!)
2016: My year of getting it together
This is the year that I stop mucking about and finally get serious with Abba and my faith. Call me Jacob, cos I ain’t letting go till He blesses me. If I can’t trust my Abba then seriously WHO can I trust?! I have GOT to finally let go and just let Him.
You will seek me, and you will find me when you seek for me with all your heart – I’m taking massive liberties with the paraphrasing but yeah, this is how my soul remembers the verse so we’re all good.
This is also the year that I start attracting the right people into my life (I have a history of attracting emotionally/geographically unavailable men. Don’t ask. We could be here for weeks.) It ends now. When we know better, we (oughta) do better. N’est-ce pas?
And speaking of doing better, I gotta get my health and fitness back into gear. This is the year. Y’all gotta keep me accountable. We’ll work on specific goals later but a girl’s gotta drop at least 10kg by December. (Size 0 here we come, the runway will yet see my strut!!! Aluta continua!!!… I kid, I kid) But seriously, I gotta load that summer body by December peeps.
