Halo Wonders…Happy New Year!!!
Huh??? Yesss…it’s a new year for me at least. What the …?

Well I decided why wait till January 1st to list out balloon new year resolutions that will shrink by end of first week of same month. Bleh…

So instead, I’m doing it the Nigerian Banks’ way. New Year (albeit financially) begins April or so for them. Mine began this November. And subconsciously my mind is already readjusting to setting new goals and plans for 2016.


I’m so grateful for the gift of life first of all. Secondly, I started this year broke as broke. Today, I’m an employer. :D No be beans oh..I decided to take responsibility. The light issue improved, roads are still bad, things are never cheap in the markets, traffic is worse, people are still looking for jobs, jobs are still looking for people, money no dey yet people dey make money daily. :|

My point: I learned the very bitter way that excuses are not for the successful. My mates were busy adding value to their family and society sef. I was irresponsibly busy collecting small chops from parents. Nevurrr again. Watch out for my post on taking responsibility. Will share my sad-now-happy story. ∗bats eyelashes∗

So have you taken stock of what you can do better for next year starting from now…or December? What “new year” goals to set and actually WORK on achieving. If you see excuses about to pop outta your mind or mouth…SWALLOW IT, my dear friend. No matter MUST deliver so much more henceforth.



What are your new year goals? Tell me small….:*

    Hi Duchess,

    Indeed, only you can make it happen.

    Very inspiring. Hmm, you’ve raised a good point, why wait till January to take stock of how to make next year better than this year? I am off to reflect. :-)

    Have a lovely weekend.

      Haha! Hi darling Nedoux… Yes oh. Why wait? I believe the day one decides to do/become better..then indeed that day becomes “the new year” for him/her.

      Enjoy your weekend too. Thanks for visiting. :*

    Just visited your blog today, got the link from Berry Dakara. I love your blog, and this got me thinking I have to state out my goals for 2016, have thought about them but haven’t outlined them yet, running to do so.
