Taking Stock: Three And 2017 Goals

Photography Arnold

In my last taking stock post, I began with “How is it already the 20th of April? Of 2016? The way time flies by thou, we just might see ourselves in November and have no clue how we got there.” This is exactly how I feel right now and here I go again, how is it already the 20th of January? Of 2017?

I am feeling super pumped and optimistic for the year ahead, and I am super conscious about time as this year seem to have zero chill. 2017 is definitely going to be an interesting year for me, with plans for the blog and starting up my fashion brand, JIDEKA, I am looking forward to an interesting and hardworking year.

Making: Sketches. Tech packs. Patterns. And repeat. All I see are papers these days.

Cooking: Lots of food. I am definitely going to try food prepping this weekend so I don’t spend all my time in the kitchen.

Drinking: Water, and considering starting a juice diet soon.

Reading: How To Make One Hell Of A Profit And Still Make Heaven. A dear friend told me about this ebook and I totally love it, I’ll recommend you get it too.

Wanting: To launch and start a very successful JIDEKA fashion brand. I will definitely keep you updated, on here, my instagram and the JIDEKA instagram, maybe you should follow us now to begin this join with me .

Playing: Youtube tutorials on video editing, I just might.

Wasting: No time getting things done, I’m slowing changing my bad habit of procrastinating.

Sewing: The first collection for JIDEKA. And yes I sew myself, although I would rather design and do a million patterns than sew.

Wishing: I can fast forward past this beginner entrepreneur stage.

Enjoying: Taking things easy like Easy E, lol. But really thou, these days I just take things as they come, no more stressing.

Liking: The turn life is taking.

Wondering: And plotting how I need to get myself a mentor, got ideas? Please let me know below.

Loving: Life, God, and everything in my life now.

Hoping: To do as much as I am capable of doing, and optimising my full potential.

Marvelling: At my throwback pictures, they are the worst!

Needing: A MENTOR.

Smelling: A mixture of Chanel Chance, Tom ford White Patchouli and Zara Sunrose.

Wearing: Less and going out more *in Drake’s voice*, lol. But seriously not serious 

Following: Trends. I plan to keep well ahead of trends this year.

Noticing: Time has ZERO chill!

Knowing: That in the end, everything will be fine.

Thinking: About business(es). As a real Igbo girl that I am nah! Hehehe.

Bookmarking: Articles on vlogging. I am considering going into that space, what do you think? And would you like to see?

Opening: Nothing really.

Giggling: At funny instagram posts.

Feeling: Alive, and on a directed path in life. I feel like I’ve been waiting to feel this way for a long while.

I am super excited and looking forward to the rest of 2017, the projects and businesses I will be working on (and I do hope you support me ). My 2017 goals below, trying to keep it simple;
