““Artists can have greater access to reality; they can see patterns and details and connections that other people, distracted by the blur of life, might miss. Just sharing that truth can be a very powerful thing.”
― Shawn Carter
It’s been a difficult year so far – hard to believe we are barely three months in. Nigeria is in a state of flux and …Uncertainty breeds desperation and despair. In spite of this, my aim this year is to have a good year regardless of the macro environment – My 2016 goal is closely linked to my hashtag this year (lol yup, I have an official hashtag, judge me all you want!) – call it a visual mantra.
I decided to start blogging again, despite many stops and starts – as one of my challenges to myself. In a conversation with my mentor TFD, I managed to articulate exactly why, I started blogging.
I’ve always believed in next level personal style and I miss the sense of freedom and ‘who do I want to be today’ craziness I had in England. Getting dressed was an adventure #onlyfashiongirlsunderstand. Lagos stifles that – and I let it.
Whether it’s drinking tea from a really nice tea set or taking a class just to learn something new.
So I guess its first of all a clarion call to myself, not to wallow in the past, but to endeavour to live well, to be myself, to re-learn celebrating life as the occasion. And in the hope that in doing this, I’ll give people inspiration to do the same.
