Happy New Year!

I figured I’d better write this post before I get knee dip in work, school, business and whatever else life throws at me. I’d love to write my 2021 goals but I have a phobia for oversharing (if there is ever such a thing).

There are a few resolutions that we should make to better oneself and the world we live in. Resolution should be a tool for growth: mentally, physically and emotionally.

Mental health

Speaking of mental health used to be a taboo especially in Africa. Come 2021, we acknowledge the fact that like our body, our mind needs to be taken care of. Identify factors that trigger you. Tackle them. As you care for yourself makes sure your actions or words are not acting as a trigger for someone else’s mental health. It’s the least we can do for each other as humans. Take care of your mental health

Physical health

Forget losing weight. Are you healthy and fit?

I’d like to be physical healthy to keep numerous diseases and high-related problem at bay. I do not want lifestyle diseases to catch up with me. In addition, exercising and staying fit reduces stress, anxiety and prevent health problems. I think I’d be doing myself a favor.

Environment

This is a topic that is close to my heart. The number of plants and animals going extinct is alarming.

It is high time we acknowledge and understand the grave problem that mankind is facing. The environment takes care of us and it is our duty as human beings to take care of it. It’s with the little things like dumping your waste responsibly, planting of trees or reducing the use of plastics.

Accept

We need to be more accepting, tolerant and considerate. We need to learn and accept others, irrespective of their opinions, gender and class. We have witnessed the demeaning and war of words that happens in social media just because of different views and opinions. People kill because they belong to a society different from the another. We need to constantly remind ourselves that we are human first and the person next to them is as human as they are.

Talking about acceptance – The Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference.

Hoping that this year will be better than last year.

Always,

Authentically African!
