HOW HAS LIFE BEEN IN AUGUST?
I think it is cliché to start by exclaiming how fast the year has been spent when we are here to talk about how life has been in August, rather I will enjoin you to grab a drink, join me on this table and let’s relate. Although it cannot be understated that it’s been a long time coming this year 2019, a lot of things have happened that call for a recap and review.
Let us ask those questions expected in this scenario. What have you been up to, what has changed, how has it been and what has been your share of the good, bad and the ugly so far?
I am writing this heartily to tell you how awesome the year has been especially now that it is my birth month, August. Although I had some slightly gloomy moments I found hard to get off my mind easily, this post is aimed at detailing my events thus far. It will be a nice ride along with me – then at the end, I will also love to read how life has been for you too. I hope that sounds like a nice plan?
Here we go:
I have never sat down with a pen and paper to write down this thing called ‘resolution’ and pin it on the wall. This is not to mean that I don’t make resolutions at the dawn of the year. How it happens in my case is that I note them by heart subconsciously, I bring them to my conscious state quietly and they start to manifest.
I have never been any proud of making resolutions like this year. These were thoughts I carried with me as I proceeded into the year and gradually they started blooming to reality. There were certain things about me that I yearned to see them change from how they were.
Funny but true, feeding myself well was top of my resolutions this year because I had an ugly feeding habit the previous year. I was amused at how I made it a priority and I could give myself a pass mark on that.
Another amazing thing in making resolutions is how one determination leads to another. Keeping a fit frame and paying more attention to my skincare became accessories to feeding well. I’m sure you can tell of the expectations that come with this practice.
Working multiple jobs is no longer new to me. That has been my way of life since I was serving as a national youth corp member. The trend has only continued for me and has exposed me to working on different platforms.
The photo-blogging job I started with Moments Ideal Concepts last year is experiencing a growth that I am happy about, same as the interior décor page I manage and the NightlifeNg job is taking a nice shape too. I recently jumped on content creation for the popular Date360 blog on the fashion and lifestyle category and I hope to do amazing on there too.
So far, work has been fantastic for me cos that’s the question I get to be asked most. I sometimes had a challenge with my work speed and I can say that nobody taught me how I learnt to switch things up. I have also had a span of unmotivated moments for tired reasons but I know how to fix things.
My unchanging routine in the past months has just been the thing bugging me. It has been the same old way of going to work and returning home but how I have been dealing with that is to make sure I have satisfactory weekends, go out sometimes during the week after work and making sure I don’t get overwhelmed by the routine to the point of wearing out or breaking down. All it takes is a balance.
I am still looking forward to my dream job of travelling around the world so I keep putting in effort to the ones at hand. I am sure that the way to it is the way through it. I have also been very happy about my craft in the past months.
My only option in this aspect is to live life as positive as possible. I do this by enjoying my current phase of life rather than enduring it because I am too sure it will pass on to greatness. I acknowledge my little wins this eighth month of the year and I embrace my pace by never found comparing. Thankfully I have also being a source of motivation onto others including my friends, families and even followers. I have expectations of good things yet to come and I am excited about them. As you all know, my energy is always on 💯.

I’m sorry this should have come first. I have never for a day in the whole year fallen sick. I only go for my eye checkups monthly, commit to my medications and hope for the best. I am enjoying the best of health, I thank God. (Life could be worse fam!)
Human relation has been a bit of challenge for me this year because of my nature. I am the very open-minded type who believes in what she is told first hand and expect to be taken seriously too. I never give myself a reason to doubt anyone until events force me to. Realizing people’s ugly intentions and apathy breaks my heart. As bad as it sounds, I am doing pretty fine sticking to my lane, not expecting anything from anyone and not chewing more than I can bite. I am nervous about my openness to friendship these days, I never stop praying to meet people with the light of God.
Who knows that song by Notorious BIG; “. . .the more money we come across, the more problems we see. . . .” or this other one by M.I Abaga; “money slow to enter, money quick to go, where money dey go I no know. . .” Those two songs explain my Lagos living earning versus spending but I am still thankful for what is coming in for me and how I can get my bits together. I am not on the high side neither on the low. I know a lot of people out there working under worse terms to make half of what I earn. My saving culture is not bad but I’m afraid I am not multiplying yet in business or investments. Since that has been pronounced, I know by the end of the year the story will be different.
“Fine girl like you, you no get boyfriend!!!” I and the next person to tell me that again will be in serious problem if the person cannot show me where I can get a boyfriend. (Lmao)
My people, I am single, trying to mingle right and ready for a meaningful romance. ( You know what I mean?) I still want a fairy tale love story with butterflies in my belly. Please don’t tell me it’s not possible or I want too much. This thing should not be hard nah ahaan!
ABOVE ALL, I am at peace with myself and the world. I am a growing young lady and I believe that more good things are bound to happen in the remaining part of the year.
I told you it is my birth month, so I am expecting my gift from y’all in cash and in kind. lol (30th August is the date)
Tell me about you, how has life been for you in August?
