Life Appraisal


I find that sometimes we go through life without consciously taking stock of our current state or even evaluating how far we’ve come. I for one am guilty of this, so I’m doing a simple and fun self appraisal. I got this idea from my friend, Tola’s blog.

I am currently;

Making– important life changing decisions that I don’t feel ready for.

Cooking– nothing. I’ve been too busy to whip up anything although this blog has a food segment. As much as I hate eating out, that’s mainly what I’ve been doing. I apologize to my fellow foodies.

Drinking– lots & lots of coffee. Coffee is slowly replacing tea (can’t believe I said that).

Reading– ‘The fishermen.’ One of my mentors reviewed the book on his YouTube channel and a friend of mine loaned me hers.


Wanting– a vacation to one of those ‘instagramable’ islands.

Liking– my major more and more as the days go by.

Dress – Banana Republic

Playing– candy crush.

Praying– about everything that crosses my mind especially if it lingers for too long. Praying specifically for direction. Jer 33:3

Deciding– to take life slowly because there’s no rush.

Wishing– that wishes were real then proceeding to make a wish for at least 3 more wishes.

Enjoying– all that God has blessed me with. Absolutely no regrets or complaints.

Waiting– for the time in my life where I won’t need to check the price tag on something that I like.

Wondering– why the fundamentals of adulting aren’t taught in schools!

Listening– to nothing in particular.

Hoping– that everything would work out for my good.

Needing– a car!


Thinking– a little too much.

Knowing– and reminding myself daily that God will fulfil his promises to me because He is true to his word!


Disliking– the rain in Vancouver but loving fall.

Feeling– hopeful and positive about my future!


Celebrating– life (in good health), family and friends.

Embracing– myself, literally.


Learning– to be bold and unapologetic about my feelings. Learning to prioritize my mental health and deflect any and everything that could cause me discomfort.

Enjoy your week and take life easy  đŸŒ¸

Know thyself…

Why do we think the way we do? Why are we drawn to certain things? It’s not a coincidence that certain things seem to grab our attention repeatedly, at different times and in various forms. Most times, the things we are drawn to go a long way in defining who we are.

Pay attention to the things that make you take a second look.

The minute details of our lives like our favourite colours, preferred flowers & scents, sweet/savoury/sour foods are all building blocks that make up our persona. Dig deep, learn to brainstorm, meditate, don’t be afraid to talk to yourself if necessary. It all balls down to getting to know and understand yourself.

Pay attention to yourself because you are important.
