Waking up with a sense of realization that half the year is nearly gone nearly put me in a state of panic. I started to take inventory, ask myself questions, what have I done with half of the year, what have I achieved, what have I gained, where am I going and on and on the questions came.
It's been an interesting year in some ways although I'm looking forward to a lot more in the second half. This year I've shed a few tears but it's been mostly laughter, happiness, thanksgiving, sighs of relief, dancing and more laughter.
Career wise things haven't been as fast paced as I'd hoped but because plans are already taking shape and actually being formed, I'm very optimistic. Also there's always something to keep me busy, something that not only keeps me busy but puts cash in the bank, food on my table, good clothes on my back and then some to save.
Finances could also always be better but then it's a lot better than it was last year and this year I've had no reason to want, I've not lacked and yes, I still remain the giver, which is something that's very important to me. I've not had to ask anyone for financial favours or a loan or anything of the sort. Instead, I thankfully have enough to take care of myself and help others.
My "love life" (in my mother's words) is super at the moment. I'm in love, have you heard? LOL. I call him Mr Amazing, among other things, because he simply is. I guess he's played a big part in me having a huge grin on my face for most of this year and last. I think of him and the words of Tina Turner play in my head; You're simply the best, better than all the rest, better than anyone-anyone I've ever met... Hehe. Enough of that. Suffice it to say I'm doing fine in that department too.
Health wise, things have been great. It's one of those things I can't stop thanking God for, the fact that my family is blessed with such great health that we rarely ever have cause to go to the hospital. I cannot thank God enough for that. I guess the only challenge I have now is that my weight yo-yos and it's super annoying. Why can't I just lose weight, eat any and every thing I want and remain that way? LOL. I wish... So in this department I could do a lot better, I should learn to start working out and stick to it, and stick to my diet as well.
My friends are doing great for the most part. Most of them are not in paid employment anymore and they have started businesses that are looking very promising. I'm so proud of the women we have become. The only downside, and one that hurt real bad, is that one of my dearest friends lost her spouse recently. I couldn't believe that we have come to an age where one could lose a husband. I continue to pray that she's comforted on all sides and blessed with the strength to carry on.
Generally it's been a pretty good year despite certain challenges, especially those we're facing as a nation. I'm very positive about June.
You know I love to chat, tell me how the first half of the year has been especially with regards to your job/business/career, finances, love life/relationship/marriage, physical and mental health and of course anything else about your year so far that you would like to share.
And what are your hopes for this month?
Happy new month guys.
