Hahah, I’m running out of ingenious ways of greeting ya’ll. But I’ll look for different languages to greet you so that I practice, in preparation for my globe-trotting one day.
So, the last two prompts http://ugbloc.com/ugblogmonth-april-may-2020/ have been very personal to me because these are things, I wrote down about 6 years ago and it excites me to be in a position to share them with you. I never really share the details of what my dreams are except, I did once, with my boyfriend.
The header image is a graph I drew in 2014 laying out my whole life, well at least up to 70 years, and what I wanted to have achieved at different phases.
I attended a week long conference in my senor four vacation in 2013, that changed my life. I started making 5-3-year plans and having financial accountability for each cent I got. I even got a whole counter book in 2014 to document each step of the way. You’ll notice that at the end of each year, I follow up to see how much I achieved. ‘Don’t spend an African salary on a western lifestyle’ they told us. It was on that day that I developed a life vision, verse and mission statement.
Anyways, to cut the long story short, in ten years’ time, I see myself working for either the IMF, World Bank or EU as a consultant for viable African strategies toward boosting economic development from the legal perspective of international law; focusing on the domestic law of each state. I’ll probably have had my first son by then and will be fulfilling my bucket list dream of doing a world tour. I’ve always wanted to globe trot and appreciate the diverse cultures of different tribes and countries.
But all this is in vain my dear readers, if I don’t commit it to the Lord and live in accordance with His will. This year has taught me that ‘a man may make his plans but God has the final say!’ (Proverbs 16:9). I have surely told Him about the future I hope for because He alone knows the plans, He has for me. (Jeremiah 29:11 MSG version)
Nonetheless, 10 years from now, be sure to do a follow up on me and we shall see if we will be recapping this blog post. *wink*.
Have an amazing week ahead!
