A ROUGH START TO 2021
2020 didn’t end with so much a bang as I anticipated! With so much positivism, I was so sure I was going to end 2020 with a bang…lol!!
The pandemic completely changed everything, as in everything , suddenly we couldn’t attend parties or go out as we would love to.
In Dec 2019 we had fun going from one Christmas party to the other, menh we had mad fun, 2020 came with virtual parties, that I didn’t border to join…virtual Whatt???
So finally I received an invite to attend a wedding just before Christmas…voila I glowed up and looked really pretty because I had not worn make-up for months and guess what I had so much fun at the wedding, mind you we observed every laid down Covid protocol! I prepared my mind to end the year 2020 with a bang.
Fast forward to the last week in Dec 2020, I felt pains all over my body, I just thought it was the regular stress from working for long hours and sitting in traffic in Lagos Nigeria. I completely ignored the signs my body gave, took pain killers & hoped everything will be fine. I continued with my plan to end the year with a ‘bang’, travelled to see my family in Delta state and there i broke down.With so much hope & expectation for a great year regardless of the situation in the world i strolled into 2021!!! I couldn’t do much for myself I ended up in the hospital with injections & drips.2020 didn’t end well, neither did 2021start well, two weeks into the new year I had not written my goals because I couldn’t!I realised that in life the pace for every individual is different. Almost on every social platform I clicked on was one coache or regular individual shouting ‘write your goals’ or ‘get goal setting workbook’ etc and here i am two weeks into January no goals written.My dear reader goal setting is great but if you can’t write your goals early enough as the Internet points it, write it when you can or when you’re fit enough to write it, however do not let it skip your radar.2021 started for me on the 15th of January precisely and its up to me to make a great year regardless of how slow it started. One will say; you entered 2021 sick do you think the year holds much? Or do you think the year will be good to you? My answer is YESSSS I do! I think the year will be great!!!Let me say something, even if Covid wears a back pack and is walking in the streets of the world wrecking havoc ( which i pray against), I OVERILAYE will do my best to work out my plans, maintaining a positive mindset and rely solely on God for help, protection & support.Most times what befalls us is what we think & believe in our head. I urge you all to purge your mind, Live cautiously and expect the best to happen to you and your loved ones.
- My plan is to work on 1 goal at a time
