On my life, sharing insights into 12 areas of my life. What it has been like for 2018
Health and fitness –I finally started working out lightly in October after over 2 years hiatus. I am also retracting on junk food and really enjoying my kitchen again. One thing that has been consistent this year is water intake. On average, I do at least two litres in a day though more or less on select days. Major would be doing 10KM during stanchart marathon and I had zero muscle pains after.
Intellectual life – I have read less books than I anticipated mainly because I have read more journals and academic books than I thought I would have. Excel has become my friend and so glad of the new things I am hacking. I also did 40 hours of Mathematics this year and I finally enjoyed differentiation, a topic I NEVER attempted a single question on in high school because I just refused to like and learn it well. Looking forward to learning more about data and its uses on customers a well as digital branding
Emotional life – Growth is all that I can scream. I have been very keen on my feelings, a bit more expressive and intentionally pursuing happiness in all aspects of my life. Trying to find a balance is not easy but honestly working out helps a lot as much as some episodes of PMS throw me off cliff completely.
Character – This is an interesting one. I like it a lot when I see people work together, people succeed and some counting on me and I deliver. However, at some point this year, I started to heed my pastor’s advice. That we cannot always give and never receive. You need to replenish by accepting. Choose what you can give, where you can be a pillar and what to run away from. It is draining at times . Though it all, I am for the truth and justice.
Spiritual life – I have not read the bible as much I did last year. The best part of spiritual life this year has been that I have found listening to sermons so enriching either at church, radio, Telly, online or podcasts. I have a bit more perspectives on many issues.
Love relationships – I fell in love. I got scared and ran. That is a very good space to be at. Love is beautiful. Someone who shares your values and makes you happy. I have learned not to underestimate the power of having someone you can talk to everything and anything. I think I would like to experience it again soon, without reservations.
Parenting vision – I still have very big doubts about me as a parent. But I think I will make a very good guardian
Social life – Going to events solo can be very interesting. Easy to make friends . Going with your friends and/or family is awesome because of the memories you make. I am hoping Ruth & I will actualize some traveling soon
Financial life – Has had a good one on me in a not so good way. No new intentional saving. May not happen for a while as I try to stabilize a few aspects. But I think I have super cut down on impulse buying
Career – I did not anticipate how my career turned out in 2018. Roller-coaster is an understatement. I am looking forward to seeing my ROI for marketing in 2019.Coca Cola Marketing department remains my dream place to work at .
Quality of life – Live on a farm , in an expansive cabin , driving an off-road preferably double cabin and be able to frequently do road trips . It would be nice to wake up and get everything for my breakfast for the day from the farm . When the sky is clear at night, I want to lie on the grass and stare at the sky.
Life vision – Continuously grow and be the best version of me than I was the previous day , to make a difference to those around me and be a blessing to someone who did not ask for me to do anything for them
