Wow… My 20’s have been an emotional roller-coaster! For the first time in my life I know the value of a “decade” and how fast it can fly by…
10 years ago aged 19 I expected to follow the tradition of the average (Ghanaian) girl; finish university, get a stable job, get married, have kids – all by the age of 29 – or at least 3 out of 4 and my aunties would talk less! 10 years later I’ve accomplishhed none of those – yet accomplished so much more in other ways!
Now I’m blessed with a third chance at being a student (see the light at the end of the tunnel finally!) and for the first time I’m loving it! Being UAL African Caribbean Society President was probably my calling all along. I’m a self-employed writer/blogger/freelancer. 9-5? I make my own hours! And marriage? When men are less afraid of an independent woman I’d happily consider it… But for now I’m married to life and intend to work on building a lasting, healthy relationship with la dolce vita!
I thought my Facebook life was amazing… But the truth is, my reality ain’t half so bad! So here’s to making every moment count as I journey into the last of my 20’s!
Thank you for all the lovely bday wishes. I read them and remember that I’m not this earth by coincidence – but by a PURPOSE which will be fulfilled#feelingblessed #itsmybirthday #29andPround #GodisGoodALLthetime
