When I signed up for this, I had it all written down in my mind. I just needed time to take a pen and scribble it down, but things changed. In fact a lot of things have changed since I signed up; in the midst of trying to decide whether to go ahead and write not I came on here to read olatoxic’s call about 30 days of hope and these sentences jumped at me…
#30DaysOfHope presents the opportunity… to document all that they want from the new year, that they may reflect upon it as they carry on. They grab the opportunity to speak/write what they desire into being. This is for people who realize the power of the spoken/written word and are willing to unleash it in their favour.
Write down your hopes and dreams, your aspirations and plans, ambitions and projections. Write your fears and challenges, your doubts and concerns, stumbling blocks and hurdles. Write the methods you will use to vanquish them, the paths you will take around them, the amount of time it may take. Write it all down. Write a hundred words. Or a thousand. Or in between. Write elaborately, or haphazardly. Write a story, or an article, or a letter to yourself. Write for the first time or the millionth. Write because you choose to. Write because you must.
Write because 2016 is yours for the taking.
And then when you’re done writing, speak it. Read it out loud. Share it with a friend. Read it to your family. Preach it to your walls. Whisper it to yourself. Speak your hopes and dreams and aspirations and plans and ambitions and projections into reality.
Then take action.
So here are my cluttered hopes, dreams, aspirations… in about 50 words.
God. Prayer addict. Bible lover!
Love! Bae! Wedding Bells!
Travels, hotel rooms, airports, lay overs, tired bones …because dream job.
Good financial year, investments…money cometh!
Healthy eating, Gym runs, new wardrobe … Size 12 loading
Writing, writing, writing. Deadlines. Articles.
Registrations. Seminars. Workshops.
I am excited. I am also afraid. Here’s to a deliberate 2016!
It’s almost funny how half of this post ended up being words written by me 😄😄😄
If there’s one thing I love about this project, it’s how diverse the writing styles come. And if there’s one thing I love about Eden’s entry, it’s how very specific and deliberate it is about what she hopes to achieve. And to those, I say “Amen”.
