2017 is Your Year of …..?

thinking-girl-dreamstime-thebourgielife

I can almost swear that I get some of my best ideas while riding in buses. I know it is weird but over time, it is what I have noticed (although The Bourgie Life was not born in a bus). This can definitely qualify as one of them.

Since this is my first post of the year, I say welcome to 2017. I have just one prayer for you – that you achieve everything you set out to achieve last year but could not, due to some reason or the other.

From the title of the post you can guess where I am headed – What exactly is your personal theme for 2017. Not the one they said at your watch night service or that your pastor declared but what are YOU saying (based on what you have heard from God) about your year.

Let me simplify this, for me apart from the fact that the churches (you read that right) I attend declared 2017 as the year of Undeniable Exploits, Manifesting God’s glory, pleasant surprises and Light & shining, I took out time to do a reset and ask God what he was saying to me about the year.

Doing.

That is what 2017 is about for me. Simply put.

2017 is my year of Doing. No more sitting on my hands and going to conferences and coming back the same waiting for something, anything to happen to me. It is quite clear that if anything is to happen in/to my life, it is up to me by the power of the Holy Spirit.

That’s why I do not talk about how emotionally drained I “think” I am, I just do what I am led to do. That is why I started TheBourgieLife and by God’s grace, the end of the year will be better than the beginning for us. That is why I partnered with Tolulope Balogun of Travelotus to bring Lotus Tours, trust me guys, the next trip will blow your mind. That is why Kamari Luxe, our organic skincare company will not just grow, it will thrive.

I still have a number of things that he revealed to me that I will be doing and I know it will end in praise. Osheyyyy!

I implore you to find out what God wants you to do in the year 2017. Your personal word. That is all you need as an anchor for the times ahead because as they say, it will get worse before it gets better but then, we that wait upon the Lord shall have our stength renewed.

Now that you have come to the end of the article, don’t you think your friends should read this too? Why not share it with them as well!

Till next time.

What a Time to Be Alive!

The Year is ending and there is so much left undone. Your goals, your plans, your dreams, your aspirations, all that, just there. Where did the time go?

You watched everytime as each person started out on their dream or goal. Although, you were happy for them, you still asked yourself, When will it be my turn?

How Far are you Willing to Go in The Pursuit of Happiness

What are the things you can do to achieve some measure of happiness?

We are not even going deep, but how far can you go to ensure you go to bed at peace and wake up with a glow.

I’m on a journey to find true happiness and joy and at 23, I know I’m not even close to finding it yet.

I Learnt a New Word Today… SHAPE

I Learnt a New Word Today… SHAPE

I learnt a new word today.

SHAPE.

You read that right the first time, don’t second guess yourself. I do it so I know that’s what you just did. ☺

S.H.A.P.E.

I’ll tell you what it means in a bit.

Have you ever been at some sort of crossroad and everyone around you is telling you the “right” direction to turn. Some well-meaning people even do it a very unobtrusive way, they prod you along but you just don’t know they’re doing it.

Oh well, I’ve been there. Didn’t bite any heads off but now I know those to take advice from and those to just ignore.

Before I veer off the topic (Done that already), here’s what I found S. H. A. P. E. to mean. If you don’t agree, there’s nothing I can do. It’s my truth. Find yours.

S – Spiritual Gifts, Do you know yours?
H – Heart, what drives you, what’s your passion?
A- Abilities, leave paper, what can you really do?
P – Personality, what is my personality like? How do I relate with other types of personalities?
E – Experience, what are the things I’ve been through in life that makes my story unique

I’ll be explaining this in depth in a different post but please let this breathe in your mind.

Before you wonder what brought this on,  I’m just being my melancholic self. One thing that will help me get through this is knowing that I have Jesus Christ and therefore I have Joy!

I hope this helps you in some type of way.

Don’t forget to follow @thebourgielife on all social media platforms. I’ll also be sharing some of my new articles on www.thenakedconvos.com, be sure to check them out when I publish.

Thoughts are mine… Except if I say otherwise…

Been Long you Saw me… Did you Miss me?

Been Long you Saw me… Did you Miss me?

Hello you!

Yeah this is another “I’m sorry for not writing in a while” post but guess what this is me conquering my fears and getting my feet wet again.

I missed you reading and commenting on my posts and sharing too. I guess I’ve just been scared to come and tell you in sorry then run back into hiding but no more!

I’m going to blog in the bus, in the office, anywhere the inspiration hits me. I mean what’s the point of creating content for others and leaving my own business bereft like a blank canvas.

So this one is for you. For bothering to read this to the end. I promise to keep up the pace just for you.

I love you.

The spineless Blogger,
🙈🙈🙈
