Dear Friend,

7 months ago, I had a specific dream to pursue an MBA in France
but there was a thousand and one challenges that made my dream seem like a joke and my worry meter was over board. nevertheless, I invested all I had - myself, my friends, money, time, faith… in August 2018, I quit my paying job and jumped into the programme. no income - only outcome. last week, I began worrying about finding a job after my programme. I had literally spent these past weeks jumping from one worry to another. but it dawned on me…

“who were you, Yesterday? Quit Worrying. Work it out!”

let’s talk about your future.

your Future is here, now, with you.

remember all those things you sat down and prayed about,

hoped for and worked hard for them.

Sometimes, you gave everything up just for it

see how you’re living in them right now...

but yet we forget to stop and take in the moment to be thankful

especially to yourself for the discipline and hard work

that brought you here. 

So keep at it, you’re already there

set an intention for this week

grab a sticky note if you find one ( you may write in your notebook or a list on your phone). write everything you hoped for in the past. set your timeline either for a year, 6 months, 2 years… depends. then write down all the achievements you have made so far in this time. cross the ones that tally with your “hoped-for” list. share this list with someone, anyone or me. and tell them,

“who were you, Yesterday? Quit Worrying. You can work it out!”

affirmation for week 9

“your name is in places your feet has not yet stepped into… quit worrying, work for it and”

breathe easy.
