Musings of an almost 28 year old.

I am so happy and grateful for living to this day and age. This has been a great year.

It started with me recuperating from surgery , finding my self, realizing that not everyone who cheers with me on the front seat is my  friend to finding love. I found love within myself, from my family , from nature and in everything i do.

27 was a year of first times. I did a lot of stuff for the first time;

I Donated blood on the 2nd of December 2017 . I hadn’t planned for it but i felt fulfilled once i did it. It wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be.

Took a HIV test and yes ,for the first time ever. The nurse didn’t even counsel me. I walked into the clinic and asked for a test and there i was tested. No questions asked, no counselling!!!

Visited the dentist to have my teeth cleaned.

Had a full body check up- Thanks to my insurance cover.

Practiced solitude . There is a difference between solitude and loneliness,

Solitude, is a state of being alone without being lonely and can lead to self-awareness. … From the outside, solitude and loneliness look a lot alike. Both are characterized by solitariness. But all resemblance ends at the surface. Loneliness is a negative state, marked by a sense of isolation.

Did a professional photo shoot.

Became an auntie. yeey! My niece is so adorable. Awwh i love her.

Got my own wordpress domain.

Swam at the Indian ocean. I have never stepped into a swimming pool before, so this was a big deal for me.

Practiced kindness i.e pay a strangers fare, give someone food

Switched jds.

Worked night shifts and learned how to adjust sleeping hours.

Moved houses without help from immediate family. My parents and brother usually do the moving for me.

Bucket list 27

I traveled more alone.

I made decisions and actually stuck by them.

Read a couple of books i.e lean in by Sheryl Sandberg, the secret, the power, the four agreements, road less traveled e.t.c I read less than 15 books in 2017.

Experienced divine favor in my life. I felt Gods protection, favor and grace upon my life.

Became more self aware.

Craved peace and more peace.

Felt more beautiful, sexy, independent ,worthy of love, promotions, and everything good that happened in my life.

I danced a lot. alone. in the house.

Occasionally Prepared home made food for myself . ( This was quite an improvement) When i’m alone i am usually thinking of eating junk and binge watching.

This was my healthiest year so far. I thank God.

Became more appreciate of life in the country side. I have fallen in love in nature , Peace, quiet and calm.

Became more grateful.

Practiced positive thinking.

Lessons learnt

Don’t get mad at your friends when they don’t show up sometimes. There is a lot they could be going through to make them not be there for you too.

Always forgive and forgive. Its the first step to moving on.

Envisaging 28

I am looking forward to a more peaceful year in my life.A year where i am more relaxed and confident,.

To  lean in and try to get more out of my carrier and get to find out if i have any other hobbies or talents hidden. Getting to rediscover myself.

I look forward to leading a healthy lifestyle, keep fit and probably get rid of a least 4kgs.

To travel the world, be adventurous and have lots and lots of fun. I want to sky dive, raft, zip line, bungee jump, mountain climb , camp and so much more.

I want to get out of this beautiful country and travel; So help me God.

Make friends and acquaintances.

To be more spiritual and learn to depend on God more and live my life making Him happy.

An amazing life. Lots of love and laughter, Beautiful memories and growth.

 

Goodbye 27 you were awesome, heeeey 28…
