Move Over 2016! New Year Resolutions: What's the Big Deal?

I can't believe the year has gone by so quickly just as I also struggle to believe I haven't put up any content on my blog for God knows how long. I can assure you though that for the latter  I have got an  acceptable reason (haha) which I will share in due course. For the former, am afraid am just as surprised as you are! "Time does indeed fly... when you are having fun"
Whatever the case may be, I am so looking forward to fresh beginnings.
I mean come  on 2017!!!
Speaking of fresh beginnings, I have been thinking long and hard about new year resolutions and how I struggled over the years and I had an epiphany(hmm!) .
Share my thoughts below and feel free to share yours with me.

I am not a big fan of New Year resolutions as I never really follow them through. Matter of fact it vanishes like a mist before the first 24 hours into the new year has ended.
But you see, I mean I can't even commit to 5 mins of exercise and diet without succumbing to a sudden craving! How weak is that?!

But you see that is me, a weakness I have lived with over years ,my inability to follow through on my ideas, live my dreams, make up my mind on so many things, severe unprofitable liaisons etc.
My inability to stick to my guns when I need to say NO to people but rather say yes so I  PLEASE rather than OFFEND.
Today I choose to put myself out here, warts and all.

I choose to put out what people might think is the vulnerability of most and as such not unusual but there is a reason.
This might sound like another resolution but perhaps seeing it as a duty to self being thrown out in the open might make it more desirable to achieve.

I need to self-detox, rediscover self again and learn other life lessons as they come along.
I want to sleep and wake up with just my own burdens on my chest, I want to be able to say NO NO HELL FREAKING NO to a lot of things without feeling sorry and displeasing myself for the selfish benefit of others.

I want to take baby steps again and grow into something I have dreamt to always be for a while now.
I have heard, shared and lived the physical and emotional pain of so many and in the process unconsciously become an emotional wreck myself.
Bloody hell, why does my own Agony Aunt go MIA when I need her? As I unconsciously set up myself to be that for others.
Well, I choose to understand what self love is and live it for me.

I have sacrificed  blindly , trusted in faith and without bias , wholeheartedly laid myself down like the proverbial "doormat " to be walked over because am all about selflessness and sacrifice and perhaps kind hearted like that !
P.S This device is now officially out of storage,look elsewhere.

There is perhaps a lot I could learn from my toddler ; zero worries,undeterred and cheering only for self.

Perhaps this might not go down well with some but who cares? it's always been about others now it's about me!
                                                          * so help me God*
I have always been happy to keep whatever concerned me at the back burner but I guess it's time a detour happened, it's about pruning the irrelevancies and sticking to what really matters .
Am grateful for the few genuine at heart God blessed me with, they are like the needle in the haystack ,hard to find but worth the effort.
In all, I refuse to let this musings of mine end up being confined to the bin of history .
I should indeed practise more self love because Life is too short to gloat over memories which reminds us of the past.
Its time to live the dreams which gives a glimpse of the future.
I choose to Live Love and Laugh -for self
I choose Self Love
Yes to Self Love
I plea allegiance to Self
2017 in a few.

See you in a bit x


Breakfast just got better ! Introducing : Freedom Cereal's ''Keep me Going''

Freedom Cereal Limited is a new company put together by a  few individuals who came together to develop a simple but health conscious idea of creating a really tasty and healthy wholegrain cereal, low in sugar and salt but high in fibre and packed with all the right goodness to keep me going through my day... and you  too!

Definitely keeps me going and tastes Yummy!

''Keep me going'' cereal is the first in the Freedom Cereal's ''Keep Me'' range  and it was developed after the husband and wife duo behind Freedom Cereal Limited  noticed how much salt and sugar were in the cereals their kids were eating. The whole idea was to create and develop healthy nutritional products with very functional benefits too but which could be just as competitively priced as  other top selling cereal brands.
As you would have come to realise, nothing good comes easy and this proved to be a very challenging feat that's taken over two years to finally get right!


Keeping your child safe and secure in their high chairs,buggies and the likes? Here's how you can with BeltupKidzchild safety strap

I am going to start off this post by offering my very sincere apologies to  the very inspiring mumpreneur, Una Driscoll the brain behind the very fantastic child safety seat restraint buckle- Beltupkidz. I received a complimentary sample of beltupkidz about two months ago but somehow life happened and I could not finish the draft I had started to write but thank goodness am back and am just as pleased that you are finally able to read my review on Beltupkidz.
