we move: meaning to get things done; to go forth and prosper x

Hello, hi. Welcome back guys.

This post has been a long time coming but ya’ll? January exams had me by my neck and braids.


Anyhoo, we’ve hit 2019 so Happy New Year to all of you! I’m like a two weeks late but I hope you’ve all started to execute your New Year resolutions!

I remember having a conversation with my friend last year (I’m so sorry, I had to drop that line at least once) and we were just being very candid about our feelings going into the new year. I realised how terrified I was. I still am, so let’s not make this post about overcoming that fear because it’s still most definitely present.

I’m afraid because 2018 was a bloody fantastic one. Towards the end of 2017, I wanted to vomit. I was ready for that ugly year to end because it just wasn’t it for me. In hindsight? I can’t even remember why I thought it was so trash but I was just really ready for it to end. I decided to focus all my energy in ensuring 2018 didn’t fulfil that same fate.

It didn’t.

I travelled, I created memories, started my final year of undergrad and fell in love with myself all over again. This time, the right way. I have so many pictures on my camera roll this year, which doesn’t seem like an achievement but I’m smiling in pretty much all of them. I’m with friends, I’m with family and I’m just living.

So my fear now is that my 2019 won’t be that same way. I’m worried that “the universe needs to balance itself” and I can’t have another great year but y’all? The devil is a damn liar. I’m not about to start preaching but God has me and you, so 2019 is going to be bigger and better. Let the church say Amen.

In 2019, I turn 21. I become a graduate, I’m going to have this lovely space of mine to keep updating to my liking and of course, we’re gonna get this gym body on lock. I’m gonna be travelling all over the place, all over again and documenting that the whole way through. With more slays and achievements on the horizon, there is no reason for 2019 to not be lit. I pray I can come back at the end of this year and quote this post. This fear and bad energy I’m feeling right now? It better just stay far away.

In conclusion, if you’re like me and you have this big knot in your stomach with the new year? Inhale, exhale and understand we’ve got this. No weapon formed against any of us shall prosper, let the church say another Amen!

That’s all from me y’all, so I’ll see you in the next one.

p.s: you already know I got that January 2019 playlist ready for you to enjoy x

with all my love,
