Reaping What You Sow Series 4 – Something’s got to give


Hello dear reader! If you’re new to my blog, you probably won’t know that what I share stems from “Notes to Self”. I’m yet to get it right, as a matter of fact, I’m growing as we speak, encouraged by my readers’ comments, discussions and suggestions. So this is for all of us, I’m not…

Reaping What You Sow Series 3 – Renewing The Mind (Part 2)


This is a continuation from my previous post, and, hopefully, I will be able to break some things down a little bit deeper.  You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude…

Reaping What You Sow Series 3 – Renewing The Mind (Part 1)


In this series, I’ve decided to break it down into two parts, simply because there’s a lot to be covered, and unfortunately my time is very limited these days due to exams.  “You must begin to understand, therefore, that the present state of your bank account, your sales, your health, your social life, your position…

Reaping What You Sow Series 5 – How Bad Do You Want It?


What have you done today to work towards your goals/purpose/ambitions? What have you invested your time, money and effort in, that shall reap a reward that’s related to something you claim you desperately want (to have or to achieve)?…

Who Are You?


There’s so much danger in not knowing who you are. And by this, I don’t mean knowing your name and having no identification on you, so people refer to you as John/Jane Doe. No, I mean, knowing who you truly are inside, what you want to achieve out of your life and what you want…

Reaping What You Sow Series 2 – Reflections


In my previous post in this series, I wrote about the concept of input and output, and I mentioned how important it is (as I’ve grown to discover) to put in the most effort where we expect the highest returns. I also mentioned how in business, the riskiest investments typically have the highest returns. Of…

Taking Charge!


Goodness knows this post has been a long time coming! Now that I’m in a much better place, I’ve decided to share my counselling journey with you all, hoping that somebody out there who may be going through something similar may know they’re not alone and find the inspiration to take charge. DISCLAIMER: this is…

Reaping What You Sow Series 1 – Introductions


NOTE: This is an ongoing series that I aim to publish on a monthly basis, as I go through each month learning new lessons and reflecting on how I’ve done so far this year. Please, feel free to leave your thoughts and input in the comments section below 🙏🏾 The concept of “reaping what you…

New Year’s Resolutions


As we come to the end of 2016, it’s wise to take the time to reflect on the year, seeing what went well (and taking note of the reasons behind the success), what didn’t go so well (and taking note of what went wrong, what can be learnt from it and how that can be…

The Comparison Trap


“The most crippling thing you can do to yourself is to compare yourself to others. Your journey is unique, YOU are unique. Your story is unique. As a matter of fact, you should be PROUD that you’re not “regular”. You should be proud to be different from others. Don’t rush yourself simply because others are…

Let It Shine


My future truly excites me, and sometimes it scares me to the point where I feel overwhelmed. But then I remember a quote I once read, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens…

Why on earth should I “grow up”? 


In exactly 6 months from this day, I’m going to be 21 again. I must say, I’m extremely nervous about all the things awaiting me in the future: the added responsibilities, moving out, kickstarting a career, the possibility of looking after another human being besides myself, accomplishing my dreams, goals and all that jazz 😖 To…
