Lately, I have been reading my blog posts from two years ago (back when my blog first started). I remember the day so well. I was thinking about my country Nigeria, and what I could do to help in my own little way. I thought about reaching out to people by writing about current issues that faced Nigeria, often proffering solutions hoping that it would start dialogue. With so much to talk about and so much on my mind, I began to write. Shortly after finishing my first ‘blurb’ I thought about starting a blog. It has been an amazing experience writing articles and getting my opinions out there, but most importantly hearing people talk about issues I raised. It was the dream and it has been incredibly humbling.
You might be wondering why I have decided to read my old posts. I am thinking about revamping my blog to come up with brand new concepts that can hopefully get more of you involved. I am already bursting with ideas and as a person, who moves quickly and by passion; I am quite surprised at myself.
A) That I haven’t told you everything I have planned (I’m trying hard not to) and
B) The new site wasn’t up yesterday.
I am learning to take my time; there is no real rush… I hope you are as excited as I am! In order to make sure the content I put out there is what you will enjoy, please comment below telling me what you would like to see on the blog. E.g. Lifestyle posts, interviews, vlogs etc.
Lastly, it is amazing how much we grow and evolve as human beings. There was a time in my life when I could not write a letter without a million mistakes, using the wrong word or phrase. No letter was ever sent off without my mama cross checking everything. However, so much changed at University, and I can thank the Law for that. So when looking back at my old posts, it was a crazy feeling, because some of them I would never publish now! My writing style has changed, my opinions have changed, and at the end of the day it is testament to my growth.
P.S. Sometimes in life, you need to learn to appreciate yourself for where you are in your life now, look at how far you have gone. You have gained new skills, experience, talent or emotional strength.
I think we are sometimes our own biggest critic, learn to appreciate yourself - #selfappreciationday
