I’m always in my own head. When I’m awake, asleep, whatever. I’m always pondering over something or the other, asking questions. Why did that happen? Why did he do this? What should I have done differently? This mistake I made hurts so much, how would things have turned out if I had taken a different decision? The questions are endless. They are with in the car, they are with me at my desk. They are hovering around in my sleep, haunting me.
Usually, I find an issue to worry about per time, thinking and overthinking it. A lot of times, each matter gives way to another and other times, I draw lessons from them.
As a Creative Entrepreneur who never set out to be one, I started 2017 wondering what I was doing and how I was going to do it. I took the plunge anyway and I would like to share some of my most personal experiences and possibly encourage someone.
I love to work on brands I’m passionate about and recently, I added a striking start up to my Client base. It’s owned by an incredibly gifted 50-something mother who after decades of a successful corporate career came back to her first love, Floral Artistry and Art. I also love to tell inspiring stories, this is one of them. Enjoy.
I was confident. Fearless. Beautiful. Strong. Social. I was, I was a size 6 UK wearing lady. Life was amazing and colorful and nothing could, possibly, go wrong, or so I thought. To further convince me of this was the tall, dark and handsome gentleman whose attention I caught. No surprise when he put a ring on it.
It dawned on me in May, 2016 it was that strike season again; a time students always dread, a time when some students tend to lose focus, gain weight, get pregnant, start something new, take up new skills, make new friends and visit new places. Yes, it was about that time that my life changed for the better. It was during this time that I took a major decision in my life.I started my Instagram platform during the OAU strike in 2016.
I’m an unwitting people-watcher, I use the word “unwitting” because I really don’t care to put my nose in people’s business. Instead, I find that I look at random people in random situations and ask myself questions like: Why is this person like this? What has he been through? If his situation were different, would he do this? What is he really like, behind the façade? Why is the world like this on issues like this?
