It has already been a whole week and a day since 2021 began and I am making sure I begin with writing more often and getting back to doing things I love enjoy.
2020 began amazingly for me. I celebrated a milestone birthday and also my friends milestone birthdays too. I got to be where my heart is and that is London. The place of my birth and where majority of my UK fam still reside. I just always feel comfortable when down south especially South London where all the fam are. But over the years I have gotten to appreciate the East and North parts of London. I know some lovely people in those areas. They inspire me all the time and I just love how they vibe with each other.
Growing up it used to sadden me that I had no long term friends because my dearly departed mother city hopped and country hopped every few years. If she was still alive today only God knows what country or city she would be living in now. I miss her so much. But alas I can actually say I have friends I have known for 20 plus years and my kids know them or of them. Even better my kids have friends they have known since nursery and playgroup.
So we are in a global pandemic. The first national lockdown and curfew was in March. That first day going back into work into that building was so surreal. I was apprehensive but said a prayer and kept it moving. The news gradually became relentless to a point my anxiety levels were through the roof and I had to switch off from it all. My church family listened to my concerns and fears about work, they prayed with me and for me and it so has helped.
I have no idea what 2021 will be like overall. But I am hoping that I am able to achieve some dreams I have so desired for so long. Not just for myself but for my family too. I also plan to write more here as much as create video content.
I am surrounded by positive bright lovely people both online and offline. When conversations I am in start to go left I cut them off. My peace, my joy my faith matters more than making that point today or hearing it.
2021 shall we journey on….
