Choosing positivity

It's a new week! (This post should have gone up since last week but procrastination got me) I know virtually everyone dreads Monday for one reason or the other. For most, it's because another weekend has come to an end. For students like me, it's because of all the lectures ahead even though we were longing for it during the holidays.

Well as for me, this week is going to be the beginning of something different so I've been looking forward to it. The past two weeks have been annoyingly terrible for me or should I put it as terribly annoying? Either one, I'm sure you get my point. I think if you're not yet settled down after two weeks of resumption and you have a choking timetable, you'd agree with me that 'terribly annoying' describes it all. As if going through all that stress was not enough, I had this very negative attitude towards everything. Where it came from, I don't know. I was just whining and beating myself up over things I couldn't change. I discovered this during my usual 'me' time.
Yes, acknowledging that there's something wrong is the first step towards making things better. Over the weekend, I managed to assure myself everything would be alright and I promised myself to be positive, positive, positive and believe me, it worked.
Enough about the past! It's a new week and I'm excited. No matter how tight my schedule might be, I'm going to smile through it all and stop being negative. And so because it's a new beginning for me, I kicked off the week with a very corporate look.
Of course I took pictures and I know I'm supposed to upload them but network is not too good here .My apologies.
Did I mention that I've been having trouble getting myself to read? Well, all that went with last week. I went to the library and tried to get some things done. It's a start even though I wasn't really concentrating. If you read About Me,you'll see I mentioned that I love reading .
I'm happier and I'm glad my 'fighting' spirit is back.
What about you? Any personal battle you won recently? Please share and remember, "Don't just go through it. Grow through it".
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to put God first and watch everything else fall into place. xxx

  2. I don't dread Monday's normally except I have to do something I don't really want to then I'll dread any day of the week, like going to the hospital for example. A day before seeing the doctor, I can't even bring myself to sleep. Anyway I enjoyed reading this post...X

The Packing Series: Books

As I'm rounding off my undergraduate study, one thing I'm definitely not looking forward to is having to pack my stuff back home. I honestly don't know which I dread more, whether packing or unpacking but I sure do not enjoy either activity. I defended my final year project yesterday. See photos on myInstagram and the single most important thing I had to do next was to start packing. I decided to take it a day at a time and also start out simple. I started with books.


 Packing my books wasn't as simple as you might imagine it would be because I get attached to things a lot. For example, I still have notes from my first year for reasons I can't explain (oh, I just explained it- attachment) and I didn't end up disposing many of my other books even after giving myself the pep talk on how taking 'garbage' back home is counterproductive. The aim is to keep my load as minimal as possible but with the way I still held on to class notes and jotters alike, I kn…

The Packing Series: Clothes And Everything in between..

I'm here picturing myself on the receiving end of this content and wondering if I would prefer it as a written or visual content. I'm tilting towards visual but nevertheless, I'm still putting together a written one.
Packing is stressful guys. Oh, I already said that in my last post but I just have to state it again, for the culture.

Clothes

This was not as boring as I had anticipated. Probably because I did it at night and many boxes were checked (pun unintended!). It was 10pm, I had just finished seeing a movie, there was light, I'm naturally a night owl. Check, check. I'm definitely not here to talk about folding and categorizing clothes so, there's not much to talk about. What lesson(s) did I learn? Well, bracing the odds of going ahead with packing my clothes instead of lazing in bed and on social media that night made me realize and relearn that if you ever get the urge to do something in a particular moment, then you should do it. Someone pops into your…

My NYSC Orientation Camp Experience in Lagos State

For someone who spent hours reading about the camp experience of other people, it would be super selfish of me not to pay it forward. There was literally no way I wouldn't write this post and so, here I am, doing just that. I'd try to keep it simple though, not like there's much to talk about.
For those who aren't familiar with NYSC, here's how it works. After graduating from a tertiary institution, Nigerian youths have to undergo this compulsory 'National Youth Service Corps' for one year. The scheme is in 4 phases and is kicked off by the 21 days orientation camp in whatever state you get posted to.
Let me start by saying getting posted to Lagos was nothing short of a miracle. One minute I was mentally planning a diet suitable for a very long distance travel and reducing my load and the next minute, all was fine with the world.

Going into full details would be TMI but I'd be happy to share if anyone asks. Remember I said I read many people's camp…
