Happy New Year!!

Well, it has been a hot minute but it’s the new year and we won’t dwell in the past. I think it’s best to say I won’t be able to keep up with the weekly blog posts anymore. Work, business and adult life has taken over and it’s been so hard trying to find that balance and any sense of consistency. I’ve decided that I’d prefer quality over quantity, hence the reason why in 2020 the aim will be to post a maximum of twice and a minimum of once a month.

Okay!! Today’s post, the real reason why you are here ‘Twenty Things I Won’t Do in Twenty Twenty’ 

1- I won’t allow the opinion of others define who I am or what I can achieve. I’ll value my own opinion of myself cause it matters!

2-I won’t prioritise accountability over responsibility. My responsibilities come first, which is something I have to admit I was not always good at in 2019.

3- I won’t be spending money senselessly. This ties a bit with the second point, sometimes I spend money out of pressure and trying to portray a certain lifestyle.

4- I won’t be sharing every aspect of my life on social media. I’ve always been selective and intentional about what and how much I share but 2020 is going to be even more specific and tailored to the right audience. 

5- I won’t avoid or restrict myself from sharing more about what I’m passionate such as music and my faith

6- I won’t waste time on regrets or dwelling in the past. In 2020, I want to live intentionally.

7- I won’t neglect my health and just assume I’ll achieve healthy habits I want. Because I’m an active person naturally, I’ve developed the notion that an active lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle which is clearly false!

8-I won’t be needing a lot of friends in 2020, I learnt this towards the end of 2019 and I have to say it’s one of the greatest lessons of the year. Read my post on the friends you need (click here)

9- I won’t expect too much from anyone in 2020. This is another great life lesson of the year 2019. In fact, it has to be one of the greatest because ultimately I can’t blame people for disappointing me when I’ve just expected too much from them. 

10- I won’t dismiss my achievements and things that are working well in my life. In 2019, I sometimes found it hard to accept compliments and just take time to appreciate the good things.

11- I won’t fall into the pressure of keeping up. There is definitely a pressure to be or act in a certain way and keep up with standards and if one is not careful, one could lose purpose.

12- I won’t be creating content for the sake of views, I will be creating content that is meaningful to me and my purpose. Towards the end of last year, I channelled all my energy towards my creativity and I was shocked at how inspired I was by my environment, especially during the festive season- the Christmas lights, Christmas trees, decorations, I could go on. I incorporated the beautiful season into videos especially for my brand @mio_prints  and worked out a promotion strategy for Christmas. I will be keeping this energy this year and stepping out of my comfort zone.

13- I won’t be impulsive. I will plan, think and be logical about situations.

14- I won’t take life for granted, I will spend time being more grateful for the gift of being alive. I remembered how fragile life can be after hearing the death of a father and his two children! So this year, I will spend more time being grateful and being practical about my gratitude.

15- I won’t be ignoring some of my toxic behaviours, I know what they are and I’m sure you know yours too.

16- I won’t be stingy, I would like to give even more than I did in 2019. We raised money towards the Crumlin children’s hospital @mio_prints for Christmas, this year I want to be able to contribute and give even more towards valuable causes. We also contributed towards making a shoebox filled with goodies and necessities for the homeless with @msk on Instagram, I joined the promotions team with my choir which required me to spend time running the social and other things like that even with my choir in chich. I just want to keep this energy to continue to give. Give without expectation which i think is even harder

17- I won’t let my blog go! So many times, I have contemplated stopping the blog to just focus on my business but I always that starting mouldedinsideout was a big stepping stone for me which extended into starting my own brand, ultimately they work hand in hand.

18-I won’t forget that I work to live and not live to work. Too many times last year I nearly had a nervous breakdown because I was focusing so much on work and I allowed it to affect my personal life. My job is challenging but also fulfilling! However, this year I would like to find some sort of a healthy balance and leave work at work once it’s 5 o’clock.

19- I won’t keep going back on my own words. Last year (I’m sure some of you can relate) I’d say I won’t talk to this person because I know where conversations always lead to but then something happens and I’m back in the same position, it has to stop. I want to trust my own instincts and do what’s best for me, even if it hurts now.

20- I won’t be naive in my thinking or approach things the way I did in 2019. I will develop a new mindset and approach situations in a new way

I’m sure you’ve been wondering about my make-up! I collaborated with one of my favourite makeup artists poisedbysuliat and we created an ‘Ankara- Print  Inspired Look’ with mio-prints. We also filmed for her Youtube channel, I will let you guys know when it’s out.

I hope you guys enjoyed this read, I guess these points summarise where my head’s at for 2020. Let’s make this decade count and live a meaningful and purposeful life

I want to wish us all a very happy new year. May 2020 bring us favour, blessings and joy on every side.
