I don’t know if I believe in resolutions anymore – I need to know if this is a milestone in life, where you become so cynical – having no faith in your own self.
Anyway, I found this taking stock template here and I’m doing one for the birthday/the month as per, closing out/rounding off.
Reading: Nothing. If Emails count, then I’m reading something. A dear colleague gave me this book as a birthday present – I’ll be reading it when I go on leave, I promise.
Enjoying: Little Escapes. The lover and I have been taking mini-staycations in the past week (maybe because it was our birthday week). Dealdey Local Hotel deals have been a blessing to us. You can actually do weekday Staycations – a few tips to help you. 1) Pick a hotel that’s close to your office or against the flow of traffic. 2) Turn off your work mail. It is just one night. 3) Off 👏ya👏phone 4) Take a shower 5) Sink into that comfy bed and just chill 6) Wake early enough to have breakfast 7) Use Uber to get to work 8) Be happy.
Listening: to Justin Bieber’s Purpose. I can’t believe I’m a Belieber now. 😢 I used to think he was cute now, I think he understands. My top 3 songs are Purpose, What Do You Mean and Every other song on the album!
Anticipating: 10 Work-free days before I collapse. I’m really drained. Honestly. My creativity is not on fleek at the moment.
Holding: on to this promise – He never fails.
Remembering: God’s faithfulness this year. Lol. Have you read my review on Stories.ng? Check it out here.

Preparing: for Christmasssssssssssssssssssssssssssss! Yasss!
Planning: a bomb 2016! After my phone call with Sisi on a Budget, I’m done with resolutions. There’s a better way to set goals and actually work towards achieving them.
Cooking: nothing. I miss cooking soups but we’ve been on a grilled chicken x complex carbs x veggies life. Recommend an ofe for me!
Wishing: I could afford all the things I want. Working on that!
Buying: Christmas presents/deals for my loved ones soon. I’ve been working in the heart of Lagos market so, I’m using this week to gather costs.
Liking: social media less and less. Scary. It’s not an outlet anymore. The world is always there to tell you that you are wrong – with bile and anger!
