Welcome back to my blog lovelies ❤
I feel like it has been a while! This month has been very busy for me and as some of you know I celebrated my silver jubilee a few weeks ago 🎉. So as usual, I am here to drop a few nuggets of wisdom, ’25 things I have learned in the last 25 years’. I have learned a lot but will share a few important things that you can take and can hopefully apply to your life.
1💫True beauty comes from within ~ I have realised that you cannot buy good character. You can do a number of things to change your outward appearance but a beautiful person is someone who is genuine from the inside out.
2💫 I am unique, you are unique. We don’t need to try to be like anyone else ~ Over the years I have realised that we have all been made uniquely and that is what makes us who we are.
3💫 I can’t live this life without God ~ Yes, I cannot even imagine a life without God. Not even just to help through the hard times, but He is literally the reason that I live.
4💫 We all face hard times, but it is a part of life ~ It is not easy going through the storms of life but I have come to accept that it is a part of life and is also an opportunity to grow and be strengthened.
5💫 Not everyone will like you & that’s okay ~ I used to want to be liked by everyone but then I realised that not everyone will like me. This has made me appreciate those who do genuinely love me.
6💫 Some people are only in your life for a season & a reason ~ It may be to build you up or even to teach you a lesson, It doesn’t mean they are bad.
7💫 Family are important and so are the right friends ~ I have learned to appreciate my family as they were given to me by God. You cannot choose your family but you can choose your friends. I have learned to choose wisely.
8💫 Spending time alone once in a while is important ~ I have grown to be a big advocate of self love and genuinely loving myself so that I can love others.
9💫 Life is short, live your best life ~ Life is actually short and I have learned the importance of enjoying each day as time flies and cannot be regained.
10💫 Comparison is the thief of joy ~ Don’t compare yourself to others, just stay in your lane and enjoy the journey.
11💫 There is a time for everything ~ My time may be different from your time, but it doesn’t make me a failure. I have realised that just because I have not achieved certain things now, this does not mean I will never achieve them.
12💫 Rejection is not the end ~ As they say many successful people have been rejected many times before they got to where they are today.
13💫 We are all on earth for a purpose ~ Be you, do you and slay with what God has given you.
14💫 People will disappoint you! ~ It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man – Psalms 118:8
15💫 Where we are today is not where we will be this time next year ~ By the Grace of God we will move forward IJN! Can I get an Amen!
16 💫 It is vital to keep your business to yourself, especially when things are still in the process of being birthed ~ Things born prematurely do not last! It is also important to mind your business.
17 💫 Everything happens for a reason and there is a season for everything in this life ~ It is important to know which season you are in at each point of your life.
18 💫 Time waits for no man ~ My mum used to always say this to me when I was younger, but it is so true. Time is one thing that cannot be recovered. Spend your time wisely.
19 💫 People’s opinions do not really matter when you know that you are doing what God has told you to do ~ Are you trying to win the approval of people, or of God? – Galatians 1:10
20 💫 It is important to be nice to everyone you come across ~ You don’t know when you may meet them again.
21 💫 Prayer is key and Faith is like a force that can create miraculous changes ~ Stay prayed up and faithed up!
22 💫 Aim to Do Better Everyday ~ As you all know, this is my motto in life as it is what was laid on my heart when starting this blogging journey. Life is a journey and we should work towards improving in each area of our life as we progress in life.
23 💫 It is important to be grateful in life ~ There is someone who is crying and praying to God for some of the things we are not grateful for. Appreciate what you have!
24 💫 Help others and God will send you your own helpers ~ I used to get frustrated when I would help others, but when I needed help they were nowhere to be found, but God had to teach me that I should not help others just so I can receive from them in return.
25 💫 As long as there is life there is still hope 😁
Final words of encouragement
This life is a journey full of blessings and lessons. Do not ignore the lessons of life, they can truly take you to the next level. Reflect once in a while on what life has taught you and hopefully this will prevent some of us making the same mistakes over and over again. Keep PRAYING, Keep SLAYING and keep making a difference that will leave a positive footprint on the earth. Xxx
