LIFE UPDATE: What it’s like being a blogger

I decided to start blogging as an hobby. but I’m starting to realise how it is changing my life.

Blogging can be additive. Sometimes, I spend more time writing for my blog rather than working on something I consider much worthwhile. Don’t get me wrong, my blog is just as important to me as every other thing in my life, but not my number one priority. Well, at the moment it’s not.

Since starting my blog, I have experienced some type of growth. I’ve gotten into the habit of writing so much unlike before. Though, there’s been time I just stare at my screen with no idea of what to write and give up in frustration and sometimes, I am just not in the mood to write. However, the good thing is that once you feel motivated, ideas come easily and the words just flow. For me, knowing that people actually read what I write is a huge motivation. Whenever I feel uninspired, the thought of my readers changes everything.

Blogging as helped keep my mind active. Majority of the time, I am thinking of ideas and things to write about.

One thing I have come to conclusion with since starting my blog is that blogging requires time, discipline and devotion.


LOVE and BREAK Ups ……. PART 1

You meet someone, you find them attractive, you speak to each other every day, they become your crush, you go on dates, you get committed, and your bittersweet relationship starts. This is what tends to happen in everyone’s love life. Some get lucky that their relationship gets to the point where they are able to give it a name while some just end up leaving it behind after realising that the individual, they have chosen was the wrong one. Which is absolutely alright. I am in no way a relationship expert, but I do know that we are allowed to pick and choose until we know for a fact, we have chosen the right one. we know the potentials our ideal partner must hold. So therefore, when we come across one without these qualities, we should know not to take anything further. In this generation where everyone wants to be in a relationship just to say they are in one, letting go of someone who has shown an interest in you might be the hardest thing to do. however, in the long run it will save you a lot. Especially if they were never your type to begin with.

if you think you have met the right person, stick with them and be nice to them always and if you haven’t, wait until you do and never settle for anything less than you deserve!!!

CONFESSION: I have not been enjoying my natural hair journey!!!

Don’t get me wrong, I fully love and embrace my natural hair. I love that it’s so massive and thick compare to permed hair. I love the fact that it goes curly when wet and soaked in leave-in conditional. Oh, and let’s not talk about shrinkage. it feels like magic when my hair goes smaller after washing it. However, maintaining a natural hair requires lots of patient. from having to make sure its moisturised, making sure you section it in other to prevent it from tangling and having migraines from combing and detangling it was just not sitting well with me. Also, I’ve not really enjoyed my natural hair because I am not too good in styling, which always leaves me with a boring hair look.  let’s not mention hairdressers that always wants to complain about how your hair is too thick and how it makes their back hurt lol. Although, having an afro is a lot of pain and stress to both the customer and the hairdresser. However, no one should be made to feel like it’s their fault for the type of hair they have.
