Taking Stock: 11.

So it’s been a minute here and I’ve not had a ‘taking stock’ post since the end of last year but It’s all good because though this year so far has been challenging for me, I have started to practice ‘letting it go’ and looking after myself better.
Being gentle with myself is my new thing especially since over-thinking, doubts and worrying haven’t exactly done me good or given me positive results so far. It’s hard but I’m taking all the punches life is throwing at me now with a calm chilled spirit. For this I’m grateful.
Some things and people are helping me through this time so they feature a lot in this taking stock episode, I am:

Making: efforts to incorporate James Altucher's Daily Practice into my life. It's helped me a lot.

Eating: Guguru (popcorn) and groundnut now. My appetite is the pits nowadays, so these keep me filled for long periods.

Drinking: no soda and little to no alcohol of recent. I like it.

Reading: James Altucher’s website  everyday. Google and follow him on LinkedIn, if you haven't already. I am not into inspirational/self-help gurus, so trust that this guy is not one of those. From his ‘Daily practice’ to his writing style, he’s a gem. He’s a successful business man too, so there's much to learn from him, check him out.

Smelling: my Versace ‘Woman’ fragrance. It was recently gifted to me and I’m trying to learn to like it, so I wear it every other day now.

Fascinated: by beauty photography and retouching. It’s one key area that I want to master with my photography and editing.

Wanting: to learn how to make a new dish. I'm usually safe and regular with my food choices, now i'm bored and wish to learn other easy stuff. I've been following Woven Blends on her blog and Instagram, her meals seem delicious and very easy.

Learning: the dangers of procrastination. I almost lost something very important to me because I did not do what I was supposed to do on time. It was a close call that taught me a very hard lesson.
Off of this, during this close-call, I solved a big problem that came up, with diligent research and persistence.
Lesson learnt for me was that I can actually do anything if I put my mind to it. No really, I’m not just saying this. You literally can do anything (apart from create life) if you dedicate your time, effort and mind for as long as it might take to do it.

Annoyed: by the way my skin right now. Guys, stress break-out is a thing. As if the breakouts are not bad enough, my hands are peeling like that of a week-old baby! I have intensified my moisturizing but no dice. Anyone has any idea for what I can use? Please help!

Feeling: calm and pragmatic about the future, sometimes even optimistic.

Enjoying: ‘The Son I Never Knew’ on Telemundo. Mario Cimarro is such a dreamboat.. and who killed Ignacio?! 

Thanking: God for life. We lost my closest friend's mum earlier this month, after a long period of illness. It made me reflect of things and become more conscientious to the people i still have around me. I hope to do better by my family and friends going forward.

This is me now. How have y'all been? Hope good?

Peace & Happiness.
