Dance Into The Light

What are your plans for today? Will you be cooking? Chilling in bed or hanging out with your friends? The days go by so quickly that sometimes I can’t help but ask myself where it all went? Even though the days go by so quickly, its always a joy for me when the weekend arrives. There’s just something so amazing about the weekend. I don’t have any exciting plans set for this week but I do plan to complete some assignments for school, do laundry, write in my journal, go to the grocery store and make it to church. I love going to church and being around a community of believers. There’s always something to learn in the presence of God. If you are looking for a church to attend, check out Hillsong Church. There are many different locations for their church. You can search for more information on their website. http://hillsong.com/

Set A Goal

Notebook Set | NYLON SHOP:

For many of us, before the year started we made a list of things we wanted to do. And for others, a new years resolutions list was made. I wonder how’s that coming along? Have you accomplished any of your goals? What is hindering you from starting or even continuing?

So as the year started, I made a new years resolution which was (consistency). Consistency in every area in my life. From reading/studying the Bible more, writing on my blog, reading a book every month. How’s that going so far for me? It’s actually going well. If I can rate how consistent I am from a scale of 1-10, I would say 8.5 out of 10. I am trying. Where credit is due, I’ll give it. It’s not always but having a small notebook to take notes has been extremely helpful.

On January 16th, I started a “set a goal every week challenge”. I told my sister and one of my friends about it. They joined my challenge. So what exactly is the challenge? So every week on Sunday, you must set one or two goals for yourself for that week. When Sunday arrives, we have to report to each other on how the challenge went about for us. Were we able to accomplish the goal we wanted to accomplish? Why didn’t we accomplish us? What were some of the hindrances that set us back? What can we do the next time, for this not to be a repetitive behavior?

Feel free to join this challenge.

Challenge Rules:

1. Get a notebook/writing utensil.

2. Every Sunday, you must write a new goal for the week.

3. Get a friend to participate in this challenge. Tell your friends and their friends.

Tips on seriously accomplishing your goals

1.  Be focused.

2. Check your notebook on what needs to be accomplished. Check off what you have accomplished. Be consistent. If you can’t accomplish last weeks goal, for the following week, instead of creating a new list, you can write in your notebook “Complete last week’s goals.”

3. Let your goals be realistic.

Examples of Goals:

1. Start reading/studying a book in the Bible.

2. Cook a new meal

3. Write for an hour

4. Spend time to listen to worship (no distraction)

5. Drink 5-6 cups of water

6. Read three chapters in a book

7. Take a walk for 30 minutes every day

8. Speak to your mother/father more often.

9. Start working on your book.

10. Start a Youtube channel.

Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day to my homeland Ghana. Today we have turned 60 years old. For the first time, I actually didn’t do anything to celebrate. I didn’t eat any African food. I wasn’t home. It was a beautiful feeling seeing the amount of posts that people shared online on how they were celebrating this day. I miss Ghana very much. I haven’t been there in 16 years. Soon and very soon, I will go. I’m telling you the plane ticket is like someone’s breakfast, lunch and dinner. To think of it, if we allow money to get in the way of going somewhere, we will never travel. Tell me, how did you celebrate this Independence Day? What did you chop today? Fufu & Light Soup, Banku & Okra or straight Ghana jollof rice?

Here are a few pictures I came across online on Ghana.

Picture Credit: All photos were found on Tumblr. P.S. Happy two years to my blog. (March 6,2015). We are in 2017 and we will continue to flourish 🙂
