Positivity is defined by the Merriam Webster online dictionary as the quality or state of being positive. … And That was my motto for 2015 . Positivity. I decided to challenge myself to always look at the glass half full no matter what situation I found myself in but damn I didn’t think it’d be this difficult! I’m turning 25 this year and I am not even excited about it. I feel like I had my sh*t together more when I was 21! I think I was more responsible, assertive and productive then.. But Now? Oh boy… You guys need to meet me lol I’m a hot mess! Or as they’ll say here in Ghana, ‘I have Blasted ruff!’ I didn’t think I’d have to start my life all over again at 25 but here I am and it has taken me a long time to accept that it’s okay.. I have decided to make it a point to try to forget all the truly trying experiences I’ve encountered over the past few years as a result of bad decision making and just focus on being the best version of myself that I can be… and also use myself as an example to others by sharing all my hopes, dreams, failures and triumphs in this online journal…. It’s time to stop making excuses and make a conscious effort to be a better daughter, sister and friend because I have truly been a selfish B*tch and I am ashamed of myself.
