As I turn 27 within the next few days, I have been reflecting on how far I have come. I feel like as I get older I am a girl on a mission. I am more focus now more than over, I feel very centred in where I am in life and feel very content with it. Don’t get me wrong I continue to strive for so much more and my ambition is only growing. But I have come to understand that you really have to be ok with where you are now in life to prepare yourself for what is coming ahead of you.
26 has still been a fun age and I have grown so much, the wisdom that I have now makes me cherish any pain or misfortune that I have experienced in the past whether personally or professionally. I have come to realise It is all about of my journey.
As I go into my 27th year of life, I now know that as much as you plan your life it will never be linear and anything can happen. What I am sure of is the key goals I want to achieve. I am so sure of visualisation and verbally proclaiming your blessing ahead of time, as things really become what you speak. To give an example. I wrote in my journal at the beginning of 2017 that I would love to write for Marketing week, by November 2017 I was on Marketing Week as a marketing guest on tier podcast. And It didn’t even stop there. In March 2018 they reached out again and asked to contribute to an article and out of all the speaker my name and image was used as the main marketer for this article, giving me and my initiative so much coverage and awareness. This was all completely beyond what I thought I could achieve. And it all started with a ‘mustard seed’ approach by writing down one small goal.
Girl On A Mission – Entering Chapter 27
I really am a girl on a mission, my dreams are so big that it scares me! But I am so excited about it because it is exciting, daunting but all amazing. We have one life and I am committed and focused on assuring I fulfil my purpose and enjoy what I have been blessed with. I have amazing siblings and family, a strong solid friendship that are basically family and an amazing partner. Cheers to the 26 years and 27 I am ready for you!
