1st Quarter

It has been a ride… 

Welcome to the 2nd quarter. 

Here are things I’ve picked up so far…

1. Falling in love with the ‘wrong’ person hurts. Learnt I could be really jealousy and bitter against another person. Learnt to identify the emotion I’m going through at the moment and try to deal with it appropriately(emotional intelligence) … I learnt that hurt hurts. I’m learning to ‘unlike’ again. 

And I’m learning to forgive… 

The only one who can satisfy the heart truly is the One who made it
2. God is forever with me. I might not ‘feel’ it but I’m thankful we don’t walk by our feelings if not it’s straight to the Lagoon. 

My Christian journey is that of faith. This life that I live now, I live by faith through Christ that loves me and gave Himself for me. 
3. It isn’t my works. I’ve been saved already. I should stop unconsciously relying on my works thinking that’s what saved me. 
4. I should rejoice more in the finished works of Christ. 
5. I learnt to give more. To stop holding on to material things. Learning to start doing things out of love. Freely have I received, freely I should give… 
6. I’m learning to be happy being a woman. An unashamed one, one proud of who she is knowing she’s the apple of His eyes. 
7. Resting in my Father’s love. It’s overwhelming and I think atimes(most times), who am I that you are this mindful even to the minute detail. 
I can’t wait for the plans Daddy has for me for this next season. Hopefully, I’ll post more often. ✌✌✌

Happy Birthday 👸

So I’m a year older today, +1, more years added! 

It’s my birthday! 

For years, I’ve dreaded my birthday. You know, Christmas, New Year and then Boom! It’s Sarah’s birthday. 

Everyone is still trying to settle in from the spendings over the holiday and get accustomed to the new year and its demands. 

Mehn, have I had some really weird birthdays!. We thank the Lord for His faithfulness! 

Well, well, well, this year seemed absolutely different right from the very beginning. 

Started off with #21Verses which made me think on the years gone by (I feel old already). 

So, I’ll put up my gift list /wants list /some needs in there too list /I can make a list cuz it’s my birthday list

1. A Braid wig. I’m tired of sitting down to make hair. 

2. Black and/or nude sandals heels. 

3. Love. I have Love. More love I mean… Sarah, you know you have more love. Hi, please skip this number. 

3. 5.0 GPA 

4. An already done project… It’s tiring and fun researching. 

5. Unlimited Internet 

6. Food. Good food. Snack food. Chewy food. Fun food. Fine food. Food. 

7. Constant light in my hostel. More like a revamp + new personality for my hostel. Live up to your name – Honours Hall. 

8. A new wardrobe. Iznor too much to ask. 

9. My Almighty Formula Hoodie.  I know you’re reading this.

Hmmm… Overtime ‘the list’ has matured and grown. Things have been changed, added, removed and modified.

1. I love love. ❤💙💜

2. I’m a Jesus lover!!! He’s Love.

3. I can be very indecisive. Ah… When I wanted to get a new phone.

4. I’m clingy. And due to knowing I’m clingy, I don’t like to trust people easily until I’m sure…. But most of the time, humans disappoint so I cling to Jesus and myself.

8. I loveeee reading.

9. I don’t think this list will reach 20.

13. I love sleeping

14.80% of the time I dont like taking pictures… (this means that on day 18 a picture of myself is 20% sure)

Wait. When I got my first job. Yeah. I was like a whole me employable? I felt good. 👌

Day 6
What are you afraid of?
I used to be afraid of failing,falling short, not living up to expectations. The thoughts still come atimes but then I know all things are working together for good. Everything’s gonna turn out fine so why worry right?

Day 16
Thoughts on Education
You learn everyday. And if you’re going to school to learn just what the teacher says, it’s not going to work out. You learn form everybody, anything.
Education is important. And I think everyone, the girl-child inclusive is entitled to one.
