Is it just me, or has this year started to fly unnecessarily?
What is remaining for December to come again gan naa sef? 😂😂
It’s been an intentional year for me already and I have taken up new things; thoughts, mindset, perspectives. This is what led to this post as I have garnered enough liver to write down a few things that I am letting go starting right now.
1. Playing with my health
No more! Nada! Nope! I am not even doing again. My skin, my stomach, my face, my body, my health – Y’all are getting 5- star attention henceforth.
The other day, I went to greet doctor because of certificate, the man now asked me question;
Sister, what is on your mind?
Sir, which mind? Mine? Nothing ooo.
He now said; you need to take things easy oo.
Ahhh! That’s that end.
I am not even going to let anybody get into my headspace, no more stressing myself oo biko. It is Alaye (alive person) that will be looking for trouble upandan. Please remind me to book that spa visit one day oo.
Anybody know a pocket friendly spa I can start with?
2. Spending My Money on Everybody else but Myself.
My money – babes!!🤑🤑
I buy stuff, don’t get me wrong , but I don’t BUY stuff; the kind of stuff that you can look at and say YES! you deserve it.
I am not going to allow the price tag scare me away any more. If it means one quality investment per month so be it. I am starting this train and nothing is stopping it.
3. Not paying attention to My hair
For the love of all things beautiful, Christy Of God. Let’s rock this beauty to a whole new level of badassery. I know it is not as long as all these mammy water own, but let’s still find creative ways to take care of it.
4. Caring About What Other People Will Say ! –No comment
If I had a dollar for every time I considered this phrase – “what will this person say, what will that person say -” I would have taken two trips to Dubai and the Bahamas.
Sadly, I always let it happen.
After careful deliberation, I have identified the people whose words matter to me. Going forward, I am not sorry to every and anyone whose opinion no longer counts. You cannot be building tent in my head for nothing.
5. Saying I don’t know!
Raise your hands if I’ve said this in the middle of a conversation to you before. #sigh.
I really don’t like it but I end up saying it. After saying it, I will now start thinking of other things I could have said rather than IDK. 😒
Fam, I need your help on this one. How do I completely cut off the word from my vocabulary.
6. Assuming God gives Report-cards and does Prize-giving day.
Am I the only perosn who does this – Thinking God will bless me or be happy with me based on how morally sound I have been in the last few weeks?
Girlfriend,why ya lying!!!!!!!!
God doesn’t need you to “ACT” he doesn’t need you to put on a show or throw a few good days in the basket.
He needs you to live everyday knowing fully well that you will falter, but still gleaning on his mercy because that’s whats up.
7. Selling Myself Short.
No more. Never again.
I want to make this a point of duty to emphasize myself when I am doing introduction.
I am a super romantic and energetic young woman with a sense of humour that is peculiar to me and God. I am A ROCKSTAR. I do a lot of things together and I always do them with 100%attention. Some of these things don’t have job titles or descriptions yet.
E.g. I have been a comedian since childhood- take a look at my side eye game.
Breaking News to all who cares to listen.
My name is Christiana Ojo Oluwayimika.
I am a Content creator, that means that I don’t just write articles or Blog post, practical interview questions, quick emails, letters or awesome IG captions( yes, it’s a thing), I also develop ways to build engagement and brand imagery.
I am an IDEATOR
(I plan, imagine, visualize and birth new ideas) I have amazing friends that are business tycoons in the making and I bless them with ideas whenever wherever because that’s who God made me; a helper, an Idea-bank. And I do it without reserve.
If you need someone to give fresh perspective to your business or to give a killer idea to your current line of work. Well you have the comment section and my email address.
I am an administrator, I am pretty good at talking to every and anyone ( this includes negotiating quotations and carrying my market to sell wherever leg fit reach😂😂.
I would rather give a presentation than write an exam. Don’t take my word for it, try me. I am the most fun addition to any group you could ever have.
I have been privileged to serve with different people and every time. I have been blessed to put on many hats and I always delivered with a “FULL DOSE OF CHRISTY” (Want to know what that means – hire me to work with you, you’ll see. 😉
8. Procrastination / Laziness /Lack of Follow through.
This has got to be the one comma on my profile that makes me “TIRED”.
I start something with such excitement and anticipation. A few weeks or months into it; I lose interest, I lose any passion to continue.
I recently took a test and I realized the reason behind my indomie-patience level is because I am a dreamer. This means I don’t have the continuity to see it through for a long time. This is where I need builders, cultivators; they are the ones that will do the follow-through, follow-up, continuity. They are the ones that help with actualizing and implementation.
I only have the birthing strength.
9. Doing eyi je eyi o je.
I apologize to non- Yoruba speakers, in fact, no apology, it is simple Yorubanglish.
It means doing (eenie meeni minnie moo)
That one is self explanatory. I am stopping it asap.
+1 Being overserious in this life.
Overseriousness is a bad thing
No more doing my face like Franklin or someone else that came in the 16th century. It is time to LIVE! This word is a revelation to me, me alone. I realized that I have a personality that doesn’t correlate with my outward appearance, expression, composure, my style.
This is the kind of LIVING I want to be doing by the way. This woman right here is my inspiration😍. This is what BADASSERY looks like.
So, my Darling Sugar Plum!
What do you plan to cut off totally this coming quarter, let’s get on this accountability and self-discipline train together.
