I like the saying that Life is in session. I may have in the past wanted some changes in my life but they have taken some time before manifesting.
But now, I can feel it, I can feel the tension build up. Big things are happening to me right now.
And you guessed it right, I am ready. There are sometimes when we want something so bad but if it would be given to us at that time, we would not be ready.
I am ready to begin a new chapter of my life. I am ready for fun, play and laughter. Am ready for that car, for that job, am ready for THIS LIFE.
And again, am excited. One thing that makes me so excited about being ready is that everything is falling in place. We already found a house and the moving plans are underway. Everything i had imagined my life to be is finally coming into picture.
Thats the fun in being ready, you appreciate the things that come to you and the funny thing is that they are all the things I wanted.
The anxiety, the impatience and the disappointment is all gone. These are signs of my readiness and that letting go has taken over.
Am happy, excited and above all READY. I wish the same feeling for all of you and lots of love.
1. How in the world did I fall in love so deeply. I keep on thinking about how this happened but i like it.
2. A great future is all i can see in front of me.
3. Life’s Awesome.
4. Am planning a picnic lunch for Mr b/f’s Bday next week.
5. That was where we first kissed.
6. The bedroom is where I think of as “our place”.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to a quiet supper at my house, tomorrow my plans include seeing Mr b/f and Sunday, I want to start packing!
Two weeks and i cannot take it anymore, i miss Mr b/f. So instead of drowning myself in worry and tears, i decided to search Pinterest for images that represent what am feeling inside. So here we go and hope it relates to others who miss their loved ones.
Lastly, this is the image am holding in my mind so that when i see him, i do not forget to cherish him and all the great moments spent together.
Every waking moment i spend on this earth, one thing that i know for sure is that there is always something to be grateful for. That is why i love this link up so much hosted by Rebecca.
Am thankful for the greatest woman i know, my Mama. I know i say it very often but this can never be enough as compared to the goodness she has offered me. Am thankful coz she has always been there for me. Even when i did not realize i needed her, she has always been there. Even thru my teenage years where i was one very bad girl, she was there. I love her so much and am really grateful that she still talks to me and shares my life with me.
Am thankful for a man who has watched me grow and guided me thru life, my Dad. Am grateful for he has always provided for us and made sure we have whatever we need. His hard work has inspired me to make my own life better. I love you dad and am so grateful to you.
Am thankful for the one girl that knows a lot of stuff about me but still hold me close to her heart, my Sister. She is two years younger than me but i would do anything for this girl. She is more than a friend and more like a part of me. I love you baby sister and am grateful for every moment i spend with you.
Am thankful for our baby who has grown to be very tall and very handsome, my Brother. He is six years younger than me but way taller. I am grateful for the laughter and the opportunity to be an example for you to look upto. I love you very much and am thankful for you.
Am thankful for my whole extended family, my cousins, my grandparents, my aunties, uncles, nepwews, nieces, in-laws and everyone else. I love you all and today i appreciate you and am thankful for you.
May love always flow in this family as i hold it very close to my heart.
I know and i have read in many books and articles that letting go is one of the healthiest things that a human being can do. Letting go is a choice that more often than not we choose to ignore. Most of the times, i find myself holding onto things that only make my life more difficult. Instead of making the right and easier decision, i choose to stick with the past, one that only brings in more heartache and pain.
I know that we sometimes make the choice to stick with some things because they are the only thing we know. The familiar is sometimes the most comfortable for us even when it continues to hurt us. For example, people choose to stick with bad relationships because that is the only thing they know. Their partner, however bad, is the only person they know. In the end, one chooses to continue being hurt instead of moving to newer things.
I know that we sometimes stick with the old stuff because we feel that when we let go, we loose ourselves. For example, letting go of the pain of losing a loved one sometimes seems like letting go of that person. It seems like that pain is the only reminder we have of the person we love.
However, in the past few months, i have discovered that letting go does not necessarily mean abandoning certain things but releasing the tension and the pain in our hearts. It means that we are free to experience new things because we have created space in our lives. Our hearts become lighter and we can be able to laugh genuinely and love deeply.
I know, letting go is not easy but it is totally worth it. It gives us a chance to live our lives in a better way and with easier, freer days. So, i wish that we could all let go and feel the freedom and peace that comes with the ultimate letting go experience.
With love and Kisses.
As i wrote earlier on Friday, this weekend was supposed to be filled with all kinds of activities. So here is a way to document and share with my readers what happened during the weekend,
Friday: Ok, I know it was too early to start the weekend but i started mine then and i never stopped. I left my house at around midday and took the long ride home (my parent’s house). Its around a two and a half hours drive to my home town and i reached home at around 5.30 PM. I was welcomed by hugs from my family members, my mama, sis and very cute niece who is almost five years now. By the way, my mom and dad were busy preparing for a wedding the following day where they were the best couple. The evening was filled with laughter, lots of food and lots of fun. We slept at around 11 after a hearty evening.
Saturday: This was the long awaited day and my parents woke up very early since they were supposed to be at the bride’s home by 7.30. After they left, i slept a while longer and then woke up to get ready for the wedding. I decided to take my niece, Mercy so that i would not be lonely and that she would enjoy herself too. The wedding was absolutely beautiful. Simple but very entertaining and awesome. I loved it and felt a deeper longing for my wedding day. We danced, laughed and filled our stomachs and had a great time. And not forgetting that my mom and dad looked gorgeous and i loved how they played their part. Day well spent.
Sunday: Woke up at 8 and started getting ready for the journey back to the city. I left with my sister at around 11 and i decided to first go and visit Mr b/f since i had not seen him for a week. He is actually already at the city where we will be moving to next weekend. We decided to use the afternoon looking for a house. The search was long and tiring but we have some hope now. Otherwise i had a great time with him but i still miss him so much.
That much looks like my weekend but i can’t wait for this following one. I know it will be tiring but it will all be worth it. I hope to have a blissful week ahead and i hope you do too.
Kisses n love ya.
1. It’s fun to _dance.
2. Spaghetti is easy to make.
3. I like to be in love.
4. How does it feel to have a shaven head? Guess, I will never know!
5. Something I’m very much excited about is going to a wedding tomorrow.
6. Writing that letter was well worth it.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to seeing my mom, dad, siz n bro, can’t wait, tomorrow my plans include attending a beautiful wedding and Sunday, I want to spend the day with Mr b/f!
