I can’t believe it’s the last day of 2018!!! Came across this video which I made in June just around the time I got intense with blogging. The irony is, the space in which I sat was my office space I got at Osu R.E.(one of the most robust areas in Ghana) for my web and digital marketing business. It was difficult starting it. Broke my piggy bank and sold a few things including my car to get it running. I was determined! I was excited! I literally could smell success! When Host Gold Co.Ltd officially started in November 2017 as a registered company, I had clients including government organizations. I was happy, I thought I was there. I poured so much of myself into that business . Didn’t have time for anything else but for some reason, blogging was not one of them. However, I was stressed most of the time despite the ‘success’ especially dealing with the government. And probably by beginners lack , things were great with the business until it wasn’t too great. I wish I could explain but really , I can’t. The business wasn’t doing too well..needed clients to keep it running but they weren’t coming in. Was running at a loss and was getting difficult keeping the place. Had to move out of that office space to work at home. It was then that I got even more serious with blogging. But within these few months that I’ve been serious with my blogging and being consistent with it, it has opened me up to a beautiful world I didn’t know existed before. Has given me the opportunity to meet you awesome people. Because of the ‘failing’ of my business I devoted more time to you and to my one true passion. Even though it’s been a tough year, I’m grateful for how far God has brought me. I’m by far happier now than I was running the business. And’ve learnt big lessons which I want to share with you this year.
- Sometimes, God shuts the door to places we exert our efforts so that he can open doors where our efforts will be more meaningful and purposed to be.
- Chasing success is not life but chasing passion will bring you success while all you wanted was to smile.
- It’s important to listen to your heart because your heart could stop beating any day.
But in entirety, this year has been good. I got relief from anxiety I had for 6years. I tear up at this moment because I know that this is not just a goodbye to 2018, but it’s a goodbye to a big part of myself. I realize that I can’t keep holding on with my fists clinched when I’m destined to embrace in LOVE; the only true weapon that can change my world. I can’t keep thinking the same way….I can’t keep believing in the same things….I can’t be afraid…I can’t continue to want….I can’t continue to live in 2018. I need to wave goodbye at a big part of me to make room for a bigger part of me. The new ‘me’ that can actually make a change.
