2014: In a happy place

It’s been over a year I posted anything on my blog. I have been pretty busy doing a whole lot of stuff but I don’t think that’s a good reason to ignore something I once loved and still love- my blog.

2014 was (and still is) a great year. I have had the most memorable times of my life. The year kicked off well and yes I have pictures to show for it which will be included in this post.

I am thinking that rather than post pictures about how amazing and fantastic this year has been, I should write about the lessons and experiences I gathered… on second thought, maybe not all but some.

Key lessons.
It’s never bad to say no- people will have their opinion of you anyway.
Always read between the line- things are not always what they appear to be.
Always say yes to opportunities- when you do, examine it properly and if it’s worth it, take it and if it’s not, let it go.
You owe yourself the best in life- nobody else does.
Be careful of the kind of friends you keep- some are just there to run you down.
Speak less: listen more- silence is golden and yeah, this works all the time.
Don’t ever think you don’t have a choice- it’s just the opposite of what you are planning to do.
Beware of the wrong decisions that pose like opportunities they look good very very good and glittering, some pose as the rich and influential person it seems you need to make all your dreams come true… all lies. There are no genies in this world, so wake up.
You made a mistake and goofed really bad? Get over it and continue moving or better still, stay again.
Dreams do come through… always!
If you can dream it, see it, imagine it, it can come to pass- that’s one truth that cannot be denied.
Depression is real. Get help if you notice the symptoms no I never suffered from one.
Have a passion- it will drive you.

Be a Christian- You need God in your life more than you think.
Learn to connect the rope backwards- it sometimes gives a better description of what the present is.
Enjoy every bit of your life- simple.
Your only confidant should be God- not man.
Be awesome at whatever you do- I mean you have to be the best.
Never compare your life with anyone- their life might just be so crappy.
The fact that someone else has something you wish you had does not mean you need it- if it’s meant to be yours, it will come…in it’s time.
If you are not comfortable about something, don’t go through with it- taking a few minutes to decide if it’s worth it or not is not bad at all.
Fulfillment is key- not all the stuff they parade on TV.
Social media can be a distraction- or should I say it is a distraction? you tell me.
If you don’t have a dream, create one- watch it come to pass.
Make the best out of every opportunity – don’t ever let one go to waste.

Ok am done….for now 🙂 Some of my favorite pictures of 2014 are on Instagram.
