Happy New Year Fabulous
It’s such a blessing for us to
step into 2024 in one piece.
As the calendar turns the page to a brand-new year, it's time for reflection, resolutions, and a fresh start. The new year brings not just the promise of new opportunities but the excitement of embarking on a new professional journey. In this blog post, I'll share my reflections of 2023 and aspirations for 2024 while navigating the challenges of job hunting.
Reflecting on the Past Year:
I won’t deny the fact that 2023
was a good year for me despite the challenges of being out of job for the longest
time, I enjoyed favour especially from strangers.
Last year, I took content creation serious and it was quite rewarding to an extent. Having to create
content for all my social media platforms, both written and visual content,
wasn’t a walk in the park but we achieved it.
The reward was growth and some
form of recognition though not to the extent anticipated but it was worth it. My visibility on social media got boosted and this also brought clients whom I handled
various projects for so I can boldly say ‘Mission
Let me confess, I wasn’t
as consistent as I hoped to be on my blog but I think I can be excused as I
have announced previously that I am working on my second book. Update on the
progress will be coming later in the month.
I also put in more energy on my Youtube channel as I have posted 90 videos so far and look forward to hitting
1k subscribers by the middle of the year.
Every challenge has been a
learning opportunity, and each success a reason for celebration.
Aspirations for 2024:
This year I plan to be more intentional about my passion, career, family, personal development, business and ministry. I’ll discuss more on this subsequently.
I will be exploring new career
opportunities, whether it's a shift from my current field or a foray into a
completely different industry, I'm excited about the prospect of growth and
learning. Fingers crossed.
To enhance my marketability in
the job market, I plan to invest time in skill development. Online courses,
workshops, and networking events will be valuable tools in expanding my skill
set. In the new year, I'll be implementing more robust time management
strategies to ensure that both my professional and personal spheres receive the
attention they deserve.
Job hunting while managing a
household can be demanding so I intend to cultivate a positive mindset,
celebrating small victories, and learning from setbacks will be crucial in
maintaining a healthy perspective.
Amidst the hustle and bustle, self-care is expedient. This year, I resolve to prioritize self-care – whether it's through regular exercise, moments of mindfulness, or indulging in hobbies that bring me joy. I pledge to pamper myself this year, so help me God.
As I step into the new year, I
embrace the journey ahead with optimism, determination, and a sense of
adventure. Here's to new beginnings, seizing opportunities, and crafting a
fulfilling life that seamlessly blends the professional and the personal.
Cheers to a year of growth, learning, and embracing the beauty of every moment!
