How has your year been? Great, abysmal or a 'let's not talk about it' kind of year. Either which way you're alive! At least you must be to be reading this so that counts for something right? As usual I am back again with my annual end of your blog post. I've been a bit quiet on this blog and that is because I have been discovering myself offline which will reflect in due time online. So, what were some of the lesson I learnt this year? Hmm. Quite a few but I will try to keep it short and sweet....

Another year another birthday. This time round I turned 24 on 1st December. Looking back on this past year and I am so grateful for everything. What a difference a year can make. I can honestly say that this year was my best so far and the lessons I have learnt have been pivotal. This was also the year that I graduated and travelled quite a bit too so all in all 23 was quite colourful. I really am excited about this new year and there will be changes- some that you will see on this blog in due...

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17 (NIV) Iron sharpens iron. If God is indeed our friend and our God, He should be able to sharpen us. Have you watched a video of a blacksmith beating iron into submission? The beating is not meant to cause pain or damage but rather to refine the object. Now, imagine that you are the iron and God is 'beating' you into submission. Painful, right? Thing is, we are not objects but beings with flesh and a heart that beats and...

I came across a verse recently that really resonated with me and it is one that I am still meditating on but I have some thoughts on it now which I will share below. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves. 4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Philippians 2:3-4(KJV) The first thing that caught my attention is that we are to see others better than ourselves. What if...

*This post may be a bit long so get comfortable* On Tuesday, 24th July I graduated from University with a First in Hospitality Management and Food Studies but let's take it all the way back, to the beginning. Before University I'd decided to take a gap year for a number of reason but also clarity about my next step in life. I was not happy with my A- Level results and I decided to scrap the initial path that I had initially thought I would tow. I also used the year to redo some modules (in my...

Hey everyone, it's been a while but for good reason which will be revealed in a much later blog post. This one however has been stewing for a while and was inspired by a conversation that I had with a friend over how certain behaviours can affect relationships-platonic or otherwise. Family, love them or hate them (hopefully not) they are filled with different characters that provide us with lessons very early on in life. If utilised properly one can learn quite a bit about society as a whole...

Hey everyone, I hope you're all well? This is kind of an 'unofficial' part two of my last post. I want to focus more on the mind this time round. So, whilst I was in this 'in between' stage with God I found it really hard to sleep, like really hard. Try as I might sleep wouldn't come and if it did, It'd be around 4/5am. Needless to say I was running on empty. Various thoughts plagued my mind and I was constantly troubled. I was gripped with fear about the future which seemed to always be on my...

I don't quite know how to start this post but here goes. I've had the priviledge (and sometimes disadadvantage) of being born into a religious family, Christian in particular. Of course a time comes when you have to know God for yourself and for me that was around the age of 15. Fast forward many years later *werwoejfsdj334* (My poor attempt at the fast forward sign). Age 23 Maybe it was growing up or just being more aware of certain things but I began to really think about church and more...

Happy New Year! Considering that I haven't blogged since last year I can say that right? I decided to take time off in January for some self reflection before coming back to write. How has this year been for you so far? So many of us begin with a bucketful of enthusiasm and then as the days pass on it unfortunately peters out. What happens then? Do we continue to muster up encouragement or feel as if it's too late and then wait for another new year before we implement the changes that we so...

So, we're in the last few hours of 2017 and my what a year it has been! I'd say that for me it has been a stabilising year; no fireworks but no downfalls either. I'm not complaining however because it was much needed after last year which was not the best for me. Below are some of the things I learnt. Honesty is always the best policy Really. It is. It does not matter how hard it may be to say it, if it is true and needed then it must be said. Delivery is of course important and one should...
