The Challenge

It’s my hundredth post!

Yes, you read that right, a blogger as lazy as myself made it to not 10, but 100 posts!

WARNING!! *Speech mode*

“I’d just like to start off by thanking God-thank you Jesus, my readers-you guys rock!! My family… I love you guys!!” Lol. Enough goofing around.

In honour of my hundredth post, I would like to set everyone a challenge which my sister, Wura, sent to our family chat this morning. For all of 5 minutes, it got me trying to be a better person, let’s hope it works out better for you guys. Here’s the Challenge…

The Challenge

My attempt at this challenge is in line with working on my Spirit. I’ll have to make a more conscious effort though, I’ve already said a truck load of horrible things to and about people today and it’s just 2pm. Like my Mum said “It might be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for me to make it through this challenge”.

Good luck with this one Bonitas!

Ps: I will be continuing my 5 days 5 blogs later this week. As I referenced Rosie Londoner, I realised I never actually completed that challenge. Lol

Pps: Beauty is on the inside.

New Year, New You?

I’ve always thought of that phrase as cliche… “New Year New You”! I refuse/d to believe there could/can be a new you every. single. year. But then upon discussion with a friend, I came to realize that there’s no need to knock anyone’s spirit. If the start of a new year signifies another attempt at being a better person, by all means spread your wings and fly!

On that note Happy New Year Everyone! This year, I’ve decided to hop on the bandwagon and get aligned some new year’s resolutions. Aside from the usual career aspirations, I’ve decided to try and live a little healthier. The aim is to look better, feel better and live better. This year, I’m working on my B.M.S- Body, Mind and Spirit.

Body–  I’m a lazy person if not intellectually, then at least physically. My idea of a good workout is heels on a Monday morning (gotta work those pins) and laughter on a Friday evening (so necessary for my abs). But it’s 2014 and so I’ve taken up tennis. So far I’ve been playing every other week and it must be said that I am a legend in the making. LOL.

I’ve also decided to work a little bit harder on my skin (my face in particular) and so I’m making it a habit to wash my face every evening and exfoliate or use a mask once a week. Slow but steady progress I say.

Mind– I believe in the power of positive thinking, I believe in self-development and I’m working on self-discipline. It’s all self explanatory really, but I’m going to start with the little things. Setting my alarm for 6:30 and actually getting up at 6:30 as opposed to 7:00 is an excellent start.

I also recently downloaded Lumosity and I’m loving it. It works on my brain performance particularly speed, memory and attention and it takes up little to no time every day.

Spirit– This year, the dream is to pray more, meditate on the word more and walk in faith. Heaven is the goal after all and so I will be dedicating some minutes to God everyday. Baby steps will eventually translate to a leap of faith!

P.S I had shellac nails done yesterday for the first time ever. I’m in Love!!! Perhaps I’ll add a little bit of pampering to my New Year’s Resolutions 🙂
