Happy Holidays Rafikis!
Apologies for my silence, I took the last two months off to grow. I needed the time off to work on my craft. Going into the new year I would like to provide you with even greater content.
I’ve been putting in more effort, time and money to make this blog lit. I’ve also collaborated with other creatives both on the blog and on my YouTube channel to bring you amazing content.
Despite the breather, I hope you didn’t forget me and I promise to do better in 2018.
As for now I thought I’d share with you lessons that I’ll be carrying with me into the new year.
TRUST THE PROCESS
No one can rob you of what truly belongs to you. If something is meant to be for you it will be yours. If not, it wasn’t meant to be yours in the first place.
Whatever happened over this past year. Be thankful for where it brought you. Where you are is exactly where you are meant to be 🌴🌺
Disappointments are part and parcel of life. Don’t sweat the small stuff! Not every situation deserves a reaction from you. With regards to the big stuff, take time off to mourn and heal but thereafter pick yourself up and keep moving. If you are healthy and alive , you are better off than most people.
Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.
CARE FOR YOUR MENTAL
Every so often take time off to care for yourself. Be it taking a day off, disengaging from social media, taking a solo trip or even getting your nails done. Purpose to take time off to care for your mental health.
GUARD YOUR HEART & YOUR CRAFT
Above all else, guard your heart for everything you do flows from it.
Not every single person that pays you a compliment deserves a place in your heart, choose wisely!
Guard your craft too, as a creative , you must hold your work dear to your heart.
CHOOSE THOSE WHO CHOOSE YOU!
Sounds like common sense, but often we sacrifice for the wrong people and end up hurting the people who would actually ride for us, choose wisely! Be it a platonic or romantic relationship. Choose those who choose you!
BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF AND OTHERS
It’s important to be honest with yourself about how you feel, about what you need and what you feel you deserve. You must also be honest with others, if someone hurts you tell them how they hurt you! Communicate your emotions.
