Mid-Year Review. :D

*Whooop!!! It’s June baby!!

Hiya people!

Welcome to the last month in the first half of the year. 😀 (Is that even correct?!). Moving on, erm okay i was supposed to say something. *sigh. Ok lemme go straight to the subject matter. (Yeah sorry i was distracted)

From time to time i think it’s neecessary to sit down and carry out a sort of self-appraisal. You know. Were basically in the middle of the year. It won’t be a bad idea to take note of those important/not-so-important things that have taken place. It could be anything. Absolutely anything. ( Random me ^_^). If you’re very familiar with this blog,you’ll notice i’m very meticulous. Nothing ever passes without me noticing. I always like to re-evaluate myself and take note of changes as well as differences.

*Enough of the Intro*

Over a few months now (Not necessarily from January) i noticed a couple of ”changes” (i’m short of a better word now) that have occured.

Note that this blog is absolutely about ME (Ebunoluwanimi Adekemi Oluwole ^_^) so don’t get it twisted.

*Yeah i’m really playful today. Get used to it :p*

1. I’m terrible @ keeping in touch. (Yeah who doesn’t know buh now it’s sort of an affirmation -__-).

2. I may have finally taken writing seriously. I see a future in freelance. Remember when i said,my writings were all bout my expressions and something bout my blog being my comfort zone?! Lately i’ve realised i enjoy writing (typing actually) and its kinda become part of me. Well i’d really love to take this further;beyond the borders of this blog.

Moving on…

3. I’ve decided to try my hands on poetry. I know i know what i said before. Well it’s safe to say i’ve had a change of heart even though i haven’t been inspired to try it out. Maybe when i fall in love or something cheesy like that. -__-. I need some kind of drive buh until then….

4. I’m FINALLY supporting a cause – Natural Hair Activism. (Don’t Laugh). I know. I promised a post on that.

5. This past few months i’ve realised i could actually survive been a loner. Don’t get me wrong,i love my friends to bits. I just feel i can live without them as long as there is internet. 🙂 ^_^.

6. I’ve also been able to survive without a bestie. Not very pleasant i tell ya. 😦 😦

7. I’ve suddenly become very emotional. Ugh! I’ve just always been good @ hiding them. *sigh. Very annoying something e.g actually crying because of a movie or song. Smh.

Well this is all i’ve been able to take note of. I tried sheii?! LOL.

x.

P.S: i’ve been nominated for the 2013 Christian Bloggers Award! *whoop! *shakes tamborine*. I’ll fill y’all in later. :* :*:*

Where are you going?

where-are-you-going_2577276

 

Church was awesome today as usual! It was particularly special because I could relate to the sermon. It was like God was speaking to me through Pastor Norrison.It was lovely.

He spoke on ”Where are you going?”. The Bible reference was taken from Genesis 1v26-28. I’m just gonna try and summarize my notes and then explain afterwards

  • God does not encourage us to be stagnant rather he expects an upward movement in our lives.
  • God expects us to be productive.
  • Life starts with an understanding that there is an upward movement i.e Growth
  • During that growth and development, there is a period of isolation,insignificance,confinement in which you have an understanding of where you are and where you are going. i.e Desert Experience
  • It’s a time of reflection and evaluation.
  • There’s always a pattern/process in the things of God.
  • Whatever you are going through is only for a period,God is preparing something for you.
  • Everyday you wake up is an opportunity given by God.
  • Vision, Desire, Determination, Discipline and Dedication takes us out of the desert experience.
  • Vision is a mental picture of a desired goal inspired by God himself.

to be continued…

Towards the end of last year i blogged about the fact that i was gradually becoming a loner. (Where’s Everybody?). I felt my friends had all deserted me due to new priorities. Unknowingly, i had dropped them. Last year was my own desert experience or rather still is. It was/is a period of isolation,insignificance and confinement. I realized i preferred being alone. I didn’t have friends that had the same vision as me and so unconsciously i began to withdraw. It was /is a period of reflection and evaluation. A period to get closer to God so that His plans for you becomes clear.  A period to reflect on your life and make corrections and changes where necessary.

Trust me, I know what i want now. I know that I’m supposed to live my life for Him. Everything i will do should align with His plan/will.

It feels so good and re-assuring because you know God is in control of your life. Because you know He wants the best for you, obeying Him wouldn’t be a problem. Everyday i pray God gives me the grace to continually live under His guidance and directions.
