Hi amazing human,
I hope that you are well and so far, 2022 has been kind to you ❤️
I wanted my first post of 2022 to be meaningful and I also wanted to post at a time that I felt was right for me…
Investing in me, my success. The word ‘Intentional’ has quickly become my favourite word.
I have decided that I want to be Intentional this year so that at the end of this year, I can really say that I tried. By no means has every day been perfect however, I am dedicated to trying again the next day.
You know when people talk about light bulb moments? Well yeah, I think I’ve had one of them. One of those moments where you think I need this. Personally, spiritually, financially.
Have I felt like giving up? Yes. Have I wondered if I am wasting my time? Yes. Do I wish I could start again sometimes? Yes. There are times when I just think this is ‘long!’ However, I joined a business call the other day and the speaker said “the life that you are living now, is a reflection of the choices you have made!!!” If that isn’t word enough for you then I don’t know what is… 🤷🏽♀️
The issue of perfectionism is a big topic for me. The notion of being able to do everything and doing it very well. I’m slowly releasing my myself from this bondage and trying to understand that I have to give myself more grace. I have many hats but I can only do what I CAN DO each day and I am one person.
The things that I aim to be intentional about this year:
1. Taking care of myself
2. Prioritising my daughter and making memories with her/ family
3. Exploring ventures and giving myself a chance
4. Making working hard and enjoying life coincide
5. Building my relationship with God
6. Holding myself accountable for all my actions
7. Reading more
8. Speaking less, doing more
9. Genuinely being happy
What are you intentional about doing this year? Have you created a vision board or noted your goals down?
Remember, we will always find reasons why we can’t do something but barely find reasons to do something. ‘Doing’ is never easy but by us taking baby steps each day, we are a little bit closer to achieving what we want…
ANJ TALKS ♡

Well done Angela, lovely read. I am working on my goals being realistic, not overthinking and getting myself burnout. Learning to take it all one day at a time.
I got my ‘light bulb’ moment reading this, that I have to start ‘doing’, less thinking! Thank you for this!
So beautifully written and heart felt.
Totally relate with what you shared. This year I have decided to be more realistic with myself, when it comes to expectations and setting goals. Being a working mum and a wife is a lot and I have learnt over the years that it’s ok not to be able to do everything at once.
