    Dear Me 🧡

    Dear Me,

    Thank you for taking the time to sit with yourself and process your thoughts and feelings. This year, you really took yourself & your ideas seriously. Your perseverance through rejection is admirable and I appreciate you, even when others don’t.

    When you lost your job in January- you didn’t beat yourself up.

    When the bank funds were low- you leaned on your family for support while pushing through to find a new job.

    When you felt broke, busted, and disgusted- you sought wisdom in books, the Bible, and your family.

    You manifested cool opportunities & got creative with the tools at your disposal.

    To me, you may not be exactly where you want to be, however, you’ve come farther than you expected. You could’ve chosen to listen to well- meaning advice, but you listened to your gut & for that I respect you!

    Thank you for being you- which is the hardest thing to do.

    Love you for life,

    Me (V) 🧡

    Victoria Makanjuola

          You’re very welcome Victoria. Glad I could help a little bit. An yes the unknown. It’s certainly one of my biggest obstacles. I’m sure for many. But persevering seems like the only choice right?
          Thank you. Hope yours is a nice one 🙂
