Blogmas Day 12: Hustle, Gratitude & Love – 2019 Reflections

Merry Christmas guys!! I have looked forward to this blog post since I don’t even know when. There was a time I was asking myself what I was gonna tell you about my year, but then when I started counting the number of things, it became clear that I have a lot to tell you guys.

How has your year been? If you were to summarize your year in three words, what would they be? Mine would be hustle, gratitude, love. I feel like this year I have grown tremendously – not just physically lol but emotionally and mentally.

This is how my year has been:

At the beginning of this year, I started serving in the church. Last year if you remember, I mentioned that I had found a church I could call home. Well, yes! I became an usher this year, and this has been the best thing by far. This pushed me on so many levels because I had to take myself to church, even on days I felt like I didn’t want to.

It is through serving that my relationship with God became stronger. Honestly, this year has been a year where I have had conversations with God, waited for Him to show up and simply just trusted Him for every single thing. There are times I have fallen and fallen so hard. I, however, made a conscious decision to do what is right and ask for God to help me stand in my faith. It’s still hard, but I’m standing here today!

Then guys, when I made up my mind to do right, I joined discipleship classes and a sis got baptized! Never in my life did I think I would get to a point of making this decision. I always told myself that I would get baptized when I felt ready. But then again, when is being ready ever going to be? It’s one of the things I am really proud of doing.

I’m thinking of my relationships, and well, some have grown, some have died, some have been born, and others remained constant. There were people I did not talk to in 2018, that I became closer to this year. For me, the best gift has been meeting people I now call friends, through serving in church, as well as at work. In it all, I have learned to be intentional in the friends I choose. Those who build me, and are genuinely happy for me (and I can do the same for them effortlessly).

When the year began, I had purposed to sort of spoil myself every other month, by purchasing something I had been eyeing for a while. I did this for a while until I realized some of the things I got, I didn’t really need. Also, a contract to one of my jobs was not renewed. This forced me to take up the #NoSpendChallenge which has helped me to spend money on only what I need to get. I must say that my savings have improved tremendously.

On my birthday week, I mentioned that I was making this year a year of taking risks, and my tagline was #ThisIsIt. This honestly just changed everything for me. I have been able to do stuff I didn’t think I would do, and more recently, even launch a podcast with the same tagline #ThisIsIt. This for me was something I was so scared to do, but the feedback keeps me going. I am eternally grateful to all my listeners.

Also, before I forget, remember my recap last year when I told you guys I had just gotten a new job towards the end of the year? Yes, that one. I actually got promoted. Yes! I wasn’t sure about it at first, but it turned out to be great for me! This is a true sign that everything happens for a reason, and even when we don’t understand, God’s got us.

Through it all, I have learned to trust God, take risks, and know that everything will always work out in the end.

And to you my faithful readers for being with me all year round, I am eternally grateful. You have kept me going.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! 🎊
