HAPPY AGAIN

I think it is quite obvious that I really like these pictures, I original shared them here and I also wrote another post on one of them here. It is absolutely one of my favourite pictures. The main aim of this blog post is to shared these words below SOLARSISTERSS. I hope it helps someone.
You know how in winter it gets so cold and you think you will never be hot again and in summer it gets so hot you think you will never be cold again I think that is how it is with your feelings like when you are sad you think you will never be happy and when you are happy you think you will never be sad. But you will be hot again and you will be cold again and you will be sad again but most of all you will be happy again. - SOLARSISTERSS
Hope you are all good? These are the last days of the Month of January 2016, I hope you have started working on something. Wishing you the very best life has to offer. Thank you so much for reading. Until next time...

DENIM HOODIE

 This week has been interesting and long. I really need to commit to faithfully keeping a daily diary tho.
But here is a question for you today, you can either answer or just reflect on it, Do you think you should give a 100 to someone who isn't giving you a 100? And I am talking about every human relationship. Personally I always expect a 100 from myself and everyone (I am kinda perfectionist - so that might be a reason), so it is no surprise that sometimes feel disappointed in myself or anyone I was expecting a 100 from but this is actually different from what I am asking.

How are you guys? How is this year going? It is sorta slow on my end but this is almost going to week three, so I am not really sure. My outfit for today features this beautiful denim hoodie, it is sort of a replica of this outfit here and I am wearing the same leggings. It is the perfect outfit for the weekend or any casual day.
This pose!!! :D
Thank you all so much for the love on my last post. I hope you enjoy this short post and I wish you a beautiful week ahead.

THE SCHOOL GIRL

 Thank you guys so much for the amount of love I received when I posted this picture above on my Instagram as a preview for this post. These kinds of things really warms my heart and makes me feel all jelly inside :)
I hope you are well? And I hope your day was fabulous?? 

We can officially say the first week of 2016 has ended.. Yes?!! How far those resolutions na. More importantly to me, how are those goals coming? I wrote a post on how I plan to achieve my goals for this year here, you can check it out if you want.
Onto the outfit, I have been wanting to do this post for a while but.... I am finally doing it. JK tho, I do not own a camera yet so I have to work with a (photographer) friend when they have the time, gerrit?
Today's outfit is a school girl inspired outfit, it feel more of a korean-schoolgirl-que What do you think? I am wearing these shoes from this post way back, can you remember? That prompted me to do a post on "How to make your shoes mores comfortable", one of my most viewed blog post I tell you. Ahhh.... how time flies!!

I always have fun when I shoot for the blog. There was so much more creative things we wanted to do with this outfit but time didn't permit. I think I should have worn a red lipstick tho but we had little time to shoot and it was almost dark, so we made do with what we've gat (light and lipsticks).
 Thank God for Jeff tho and Thank you, Jeff. I hope you enjoyed this post?

NEW YEAR GOALS AND HOW TO ACHIEVE THEM

 PC: Bobby from this post
I have heard about alot of people talk and write and even create memes for how people don't keep their new year resolutions or new year goal or how probably they wrote something down and nothing came to pass or whatever the case. Oh well, I have decided to do a post about this, HOW TO SET GOALS AND ACHIEVE THEM. This is a more detailed post on a former blog post I did here, you can check it out before you proceed.

Before we begin, here are some things you should have in mind -
  • I don't know that you have to write down your goals or create a vision board for you to achieve any thing you want in life. I mean who am I to say or not say
  • I am pretty sure there are lots of people who don't have list and who do pretty well for themselves
  • As long as I have remembered, I do not write down anyhing but then again I always loose focus of where I want to go or be or something like that, I mean I have a general idea but I was not specific aka I didn't have a CLEAR VISION. Plus I have heard so many beautiful things about writing stuffs down, so why not??!!!
Now let's get into how I plan to achieve my goals for 2016;


  • WRITE IT DOWN
The first thing I have done is to write it down. You don't necessary have to do the whole 'pen and paper' thing but you might want to, just so you can see all the things you plan to achieve in one place. You can also write it in your phone or create a vision board (google baby) if you like. The most important thing is to have it somewhere you can see it everyday or atleast every other day. Probably write it on your planner or keep it as a daily reminder on your phone or save it on your desktop, whatever works for you!
  • BE SPECIFIC, BE CLEAR AND PRIORITIZE
The second thing I did is to be specific as much as I can, this just shows I know what I want. You can not just say I want shoes - it has to be I want a Christian Louboutin Pigalle Plato 120mm Nude Shoes (this is an example, hehe! )
http://us.christianlouboutin.com
In being specific, your goals also has to answer the questions- WHAT -WHY- HOW - WHEN, to help clarity. And also prioritize your goals and give them a yardstick for better result and so you know you are working towards something.
  • DIVIDE YOUR GOALS INTO SECTIONS
Some major aspects of our lives are career, business, finance, health, relationship etc. What I do is to group my already written clear and prioritized goals into this sections. Well, mine I use -MONEY MAKERS - NEW ADVENTURE - LEARNING - ETC, now this is me, You can totally do it however way you please.

Another thing is setting small goals to achieve the big/main goals. Using the Christian Louboutin Pigalle Plato 120mm Nude Shoes as an example again, I can decide to save 10% of every money that I get or save N1,000 as contribution or whatever everyday towards this goal. What I am saying is I have to do something everyday and cross off list everyday for my big goal.

You need smaller goals to achieve those big goal. Under each goal, you list all the small goals/steps that it could take to achieve the big one and also prioritize them.
  • FORM NEW HABITS
This is one of the major reasons why nothing work. I am sorry to tell you this but if you continue with the same habit as the one you had when you had no clear goal, you might really not go anywhere, this isn't written on stone or is it a commandment, but it is just something you need to think about to see it is true.

For you to move forward, you need to change your old habits or form new ones.You need to move away from your comfort zone (cliche but true) and take that leap of faith in the direction of your goal.
                                                                      sheleadsafrica.com
Also, Identify your behaviour pattern. Take a really good look at your life pattern and identify what you think might prevent you from achieving your goal and find a way to tackle and overcome it/them..
One of mine is the act of procrastination (I still wonder how I do any thing in life), but some of the ways I am learning to overcome this problem is by doing exactly what I am suppose to be doing at the time I am suppose to be doing it. My To-Do list is not even smiling and I have to mentally reminder myself whenever I try to put off work (because there is always tomorrow, innit?) that I am procrastinating and that tomorrow doesn't exist. You have to be REALLY ready for change - isn't it the era. lol. (no be beans- pidgin for - it isn't easy).

Surrounding yourself with positive people is always a plus. Create the kind of environment that will generate your creative juice and positivity and that would eventually lead you to your goal.




  • MINDSET
This is the most important. In 17:6, - The Lord replied, "If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you! (International Standard Version Via biblehub.com) This is how small a mustard seed is, for those that don't know
                                                                        google.com
Work on your mindset, feed it with love, positivity and beauty and watch what happens to your life. Make it believe what you want it to believe. This is totally one my goals for this year, because we have seen what happens when the mind is fed with negativity and hate, think about what is happening in the world. There are beautiful examples as well (google baby)

Your mind is a powerful, powerful tool. Use it to create what you want to be and BE IT.

  • ACTION
Because you already put it out there to the Universe, to God Almighty and you are probably already working on it or towards it and you believe. Everything would start to work around for your good. BELIEVE!!!
So there you have it, how I plan to achieve my goals for 2016. I hope you come with me.


This post is already too long, I would have loved to share some tips I got from the online vision party hosted by Steph Obi that I shared it on my INSTAGRAM. I would probably share that some other time.

My theme for this year is BEING AWARE which Sisiyemmie did a video on and rightly titled LIVING INTENTIONALLY. So in order words, my theme for 2016 is LIVING INTENTIONALLY.



Thank you so much for reading. Until next time.
