2021 was a firework…

Matriculation Day at the SPPG in March
First day at work at CATO
Session with Mr. Tonye Cole on MindSwap in October
  1. The first thing is that success can’t be quantified by what you do or how much you earn, but really, by who you are. I’ve learned you can have everything and yet have nothing.
  2. I’ve learned a little bit of humility regarding your perception of yourself and abilities would make your life a whole lot easier.
  3. I’ve learned to stay outside my comfort zone but just on the edge of it; not too far from it or I’d drown, and not too close or I won’t progress as much as God and my potential would allow.
  4. I’ve also learned that going at life alone isn’t brutally hard. It’s depressing (and yes, I’ve had my fair share of depression).
  5. I’ve learned that life loses meaning the more you achieve without satisfaction and purpose. I want to achieve more next year, but I don’t think I’m willing to trade my peace of mind for it.
  6. I’ve learned to live within my means.
  7. And finally, I’ve learned that the only way to life, love and happiness is living with a sense of purpose of God’s will, and even more, an awareness of His timing.
