New Beginnings

A New Year is like a new baby, many changes will be necessary, some rewarding, exciting and some will be interrupting and challenging.

All new beginnings comes with challenges yet exciting.

Just as it’s another glorious year, God has seasons for each of us to have new beginnings during our lives. We need all new beginnings for change, to rethink, re-strategise, build, learn and grow.
The scripture also says much about new beginnings, and seasons.

Genesis 8:22(NIV): ”As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”

-After the flood, God set a rainbow in the sky to show that He’d given a new beginning.

– The establishment of Passover was a new beginning.

It’s not late to start that list you’ve written. You can achieve everything on that 2019 list. You just have to keep that fire and energy you had on the first day of the year.

“There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world, because you realize there’s so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.” — Zayn Malik

Keep pushing to achieve everything on your do-list this year and Make history.

Happy New Year and have a wonderful February everyone.

4 years of blogging | What I’ve Learned

I began this blog four years ago, on the 24th of December 2014

Can you believe it?

More accurately, I knew I wanted to be a successful blogger and maybe someday make a living from it. Honestly what pushed me into blogging was because I love to write. Four years ago, I’d write a poem or a short story or an article and send it to friends to read and most of them would be like “wow! Presh, I think you should own a blog”.
Well, At first I wasn’t sure about owning a blog, I was just used to the idea of writing for people on their pages but well, along the line I realised it’s actually better to own a blog and publish my articles.

As a young blogger in 2014, I really didn’t have much idea about blogging but having a large, engaged and loyal group of followers โ€“ that was my dream. And you know what? I’m getting there! Though I’ve been a little bit off and on here because of busy schedules but what matters is I keep going!

Today I wanted to share some of the things Iโ€™ve learned from blogging this far.

1) Everyone’s got their own magic

You’ve got your own magic! Don’t compare and don’t copy. Just do you! just write it, do what you’re good at and aim for the top.
Itโ€™s so easy to get stucked into the competition surrounding blogging. Just be yourself

2) Be consistent

It can be really hard to maintain things sometimes but you’ve got to keep blogging and keep writing. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just create that time and do it. And never forget that people are watching. You’ve got your loyalty followers and readers. You can’t disappoint them.

3) Be Creative

Make your blog a place that shares useful information, meaningful content and unique posts. Don’t just do what everyone is doing. Do something outstanding. Besides, you also need to make it prestigious enough for others to want to contribute to it.

Over to you

These are some of the things I’ve learned over the years. What are your blogging lessons or secrets? Share in the comment section.๐Ÿ˜Š

Middle East Travel: My flight to Cairo,Egypt

Egypt, a country linking northeast Africa with the Middle East, dates to the time of the pharaohs.
I flew Egyptair, though my flight was 2 hours delayed, I sat at Heathrow airport terminal 2 just scrolling through my phone patiently waiting before we finally boarded the plane.

The service offered to us on the plane was alright, the food was also okay.

Well, we finally arrived in Egypt. Before we landed, from my window, looking down, everything was totally different. Out the plane window the structure of houses were different and I saw desert. The view of sand sea was also exciting to see. Egypt’s deserts have little or no vegetation.

The plane was stopping over in Egypt so we couldn’t go outside the airport but the weather in Cairo was cool and not too hot. I had a safe flight, it was nice flying Egyptair.
