It’s 7.00 am I have an aching back and a sore foot. My eyes are heavy but when I close them sleep is far away. What better time than this to talk about myself lately?
For a few days now I’ve been thinking a lot about my blog and noticed I actually haven’t written from my heart in a while. When I started The Black Writer, I wanted to be able to motivate and speak to my readers , I wanted to share my life with you and hoped it would be an example. Of course with a little bit of fun here and there. And now thinking back, since I started my final year I haven’t been able to do that. I don’t know if it’s the stress from school that’s distracting me or I’m just loosing it.
School went on break for two weeks, I spent my break sleeping, eating and thinking. Oh yh!!! I got a lot of thinking done, not just about my blog but my life generally. For a long time I had been blind to a lot of truths, my judgements had been clouded and I had made decisions on wrong basis.
Soon I’ll start writing again and I can’t wait to share them with you.

Have you been reflecting about your life and the direction it’s going, your blog or your business? How’s that coming for you ?
Have you seen
It is my usual tradition to come up with a to-do list at the beginning of the year. I write all the adventures, places I want to visit and things I want to do. Anyways, this year I didn’t feel like it so I just stuck to writing my goals of which I had just one goal.
This year has been a challenging one for me although I’ve been fighting my way through it. Things have happened that has made me change my perspective of life, change the way I see things, shift my focus and restrategize.
When it dawned on me that half of the year was gone already I was like , Oh Wow! I haven’t even had serious fun!!!!! I got inspired to come up with this, it’s never too late lol.

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
The past few months of my life is what I would call terribly hectic. I used to think I worked well under pressure but now mehn I love a stress free life. Anyway I was able to throw a bit of fun into it “I cannot come and die”
For a while now I’ve been struggling with myself, it felt like I was fighting a battle with me. Trying so hard to please myself and also not let down those that have put their trust in me. I’ve had to juggle being a leader, student, partner, friend and role model all at the same time. All these made me realize that you just have to find a center or a focal point, that thig that keeps you aligned and where you can always fall back to.
I’ve been pretty much up to the same things I mentioned in my last Myself Lately, they just got harder; Ehhhhnn and few additions here and there.
Today is all about my mummy, it’s her birthday today. I’m pretty excited, love my mummy too much and I am so glad to have her as my mother.
For years now, my mother has been my hero, my best friend, my pillar of support and my rock. Growing up as the last child I grew so fond of her, I was nicknamed “handbag” and “last card”.
I’ve been feeling really guilty for weeks now because I deprived you all of my awesome posts *winks* Mehn I’ve been busy!!!! Now I really admire people that blog, work and school at the same time, you guys are the real mvp’s
This is myself lately
There’s something about this date that gets everyone on their feet. There’s this second chance feeling we all get, like we’ve been given a blank book to start all over again. There’s a lot of reassessment and cutting off going on; New year resolution lists everywhere, prayer and fasting going on.
With this date comes a lot of ” initial gra gra ” but oh well *sipping my tea* when I was younger I was so into new year resolutions. I would have a list so long that it would fill up a foolscap sheet, take it to church on the 31st pray over it and then burn it. ( I always had 2 copies). Funny thing is how just few months later I would have forgotten about everything. Things I said I’d stop doing, I’d still see myself doing them and blah blah blah.
These things didn’t work for me then because I was just following the crowd. All I could hear around me was new year… New beginnings and a lot of other stuff like that. Most of the goals I was setting then were just very unrealistic and unnecessary. A lot of things on my lists then wouldn’t even have bettered my life in any way.
