Black and White

“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny”.

Currently barely three weeks into the year and I am already faced with a number of challenges. The past two weeks have particularly been tough because I have been trying to settle back into reality. I started school right away and I left one of my jobs – leaving me with a narrow source of income. Now although that has its own challenges, you just get to a place in your life when you are ready to move on and leave old things behind so you do not get too comfortable. Indeed, this has been a great strain on me, as I now have to spend my saving and don’t have a second source of income contributing to my savings account anymore. However, I am really trusting in God for a breakthrough. They say tough times do not break people – so I am really counting on that, because life itself is an expense. I hope this “hardship” is really preparing me for my extraordinary destiny.


With one job out of the way, I am really trying to maximize my time and make the most of my talents. These days, I am scheming and looking for ways to produce a better me. Life is for the living, so I am trying to do just that. I am stepping away from worries of how I am going to do things, to just doing them. This year is about me and living.

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist”


I want to eat out more often. I want to see shows more often. I definitely want to travel more often, starting with local locations. I want to experience the world and do things on my own terms and conditions without thinking about money as an obstacle or where my next bread is coming from.

This year is about growth as an individual and finding inner peace.


What are you doing different this year?


This year, I want to see the world in black and white and still experience colour.
