Hey guys, lately I have been thinking of undergoing a life changing or should I say hair changing activity. I am trying to attain a full head of non relaxed hair for the next 2 years or till my wedding day whichever comes first.
As I was mapping out the ways I would achieve my goal, it suddenly dawned on me that I have not set any goals for myself in the past 3 years or more. I have just been floating. I have not achieved anything recently. Okay, so maybe I bought a TV and DVD but I should have gotten it a long time ago considering how much I am been paid.
I now fully understand the statement that ‘ he who fails to plan, plans to fail’. I have seriously failed to plan. A friend of mine recently travelled to the US to spend her leave and I felt bad for myself. Why? You might ask, I remembered that late last year/early this year I told someone that I would love to travel to Dubai for at least 7 days during my leave. And I don’t think I can even afford the visa to go.
And what even sucks the more is that the amount of money that has passed through my hands (in terms of my salary) since I was employed at my present position (I don’t even want to think of the amount I received as a corps member) is enough to go to dubai twice over (that means I could pay for 2 trips to dubai) and still have a lot to splurge on.
I don’t know when I lapsed into this mediocrity lifestyle. It is not me! I need to get back on the champion's bandwagon and plan for my future, the future of my husband and kids. I know that God is in control of my future and with his help I won’t screw things up. I would see every opportunity he puts in my way and take full advantage of it no matter what aspects of my life it shows up in.
So till I find my way back, I would start with baby steps. Baby steps? Well I talked about my hair challenge/goals, I intend to go full out on that and then I want to work on my skin. I want to tone down the amount of makeup I use. Actually it should be the extent or degree of makeup I apply because I don’t use that much. I want to apply nude makeup most of the time and to do that my skin has got to be fabulous.
Hopefully I won’t be lazy about achieving my goals and actually make it. And maybe I can add more goals and actually achieve them.
Well, that is all folks. Hope you enjoyed this piece. Gotta run.
