Take your time- There's no need to rush.

Updated: Apr 4

These days it seems that everyone is on a fast track.

People want to make as much money as they can in the least amount of time possible.

Some people want popularity,

And people like me just want a piece of mind.

2020 has been a crazy year already and we are only in the third month.

I am not even going to mention why it’s crazy, but I am sure you all know why.

This latest pandemic is creating major anxiety for a lot of people.

Personally, I am not too worried as I believe that as long as you take care of yourself, everything will be fine.

If you are not aware of the warning signs and ways to reduce the risk of catching the virus please refer here.

Although this issue seems to be a topic in everyone’s conversation, I try my best to avoid it for my mental wellbeing.

I try to focus on what I have control over and that is my health. I would like to think that I live a healthy lifestyle and I take great care of my hygiene so I am focused on that.

I am also focusing on my mental health. I am currently avoiding certain social media platforms and I rarely watch the news (don’t worry, I get information from other sources) as I believe the media can at times, create more hysteria.

It is important to be informed but try to remain as calm as possible.

Make sure you are consuming a lot of water, prioritizing your hygiene and eating a balanced diet.

Try to not let the thoughts and anxieties of others determine your thoughts.

As long as you take care of yourself both physically and psychologically, you will be ok.

Let us focus on things that we can control which is our happiness and the energy we want to be surrounded by.

I have made it a mission to focus solely on my path and not let the achievements of others distract me from my hopes and dreams.

There are people my age that are homeowners, have sports cars, graduated from university and have landed spectacular well-paid graduate jobs. Well done to those who have and are continuing to reach new heights.

As for me, I am not there yet but I am grateful for what I have achieved so far:

• At the age of 20, I moved to Canada for a year completely by myself! It was scary but I did it.

• I graduated from university with a bachelors’ degree in business and psychology and I am currently completing my master’s degree in Psychological Therapies.

• I am always making progress in the gym (honestly, I am pleased with myself! I can jog for 6 minutes without stopping which used to be difficult as I struggled to job for a minute without stopping).

I say all this to say, your path is unique and it will be filled with low and high points but do not let that stop you from overcoming all potential obstacles that you may face.

You are powerful beyond measure. Don’t let anyone dim your shine.

Thanks for reading.

Take care.
