Happy New Year people….I’m grinning ear to ear!
It’s been the most anticipated year. People arguing on social media as to whether its a new decade or not. A lot of people became motivational speakers on the 31st lol. It was interesting to see that a lot of people decided to make plans and resolutions for the new year. Let’s hope they really did and that it wasn’t only about making noise on social media.
Here’s what we are going to do, we are going to take everyone’s advice, take the ones that we really need and throw the rest away. Why? This year is a NO PRESSURE year. We do not live by anyone’s rules and we are going to live at our pace.
Why did I decide to live a no pressure year- you may be wondering?. I’ve learnt that living by other people’s pace and timeline distracts us and leaves us feeling constantly shortchanged. When we really evaluate ourselves and work from our current state, plan from our current state, we achieve more because we live truly and fully from the place that we really are.
We commit to reading one book this year if that’s where we are instead of committing to reading one book every month. We commit to exercising weekly than everyday because we didn’t even exercise last year(sadly). We take little steps instead of leaps and we do this at our current sate instead of jumping for the big guns as a result of the new decade pressure or hype as my YSB Queens call it.
I commit to blogging weekly and being consistent at it than planning to do two to three posts weekly. Even if it means putting my shy face in front of camera. My friend Tosin(SST) and I organised a No Pressure 2020 event on the 3rd and it was a success. We challenged people to alternative thinking and to question anything that society, culture, parents, fiends, social media seems to be self imposing on them.
What are you doing differently this year or decade as many say? Share your thoughts with me in the comments section. See you next week.
