Will-Power…

It’s Friday and among the things I have outlined to do this weekend is to spend some quality time, reading.

Read?

What you may ask?

Besides the many Blogs am following which I will take a peek at this weekend, I also have two Books that stare me in the face each time I enter my room. A gaze that seem to be begging me, to at least, open them and flip through. But my stubborn lazy self  (on lazy days), wouldn’t oblige them for a long time.

So, during a de-clutter exercise this New Year, I set these books aside at my priority corner and in the list of things to do urgently. Today is D-day and I am ready to tackle this weekend with a totally different attitude; and continue for the next 30 days.

Hmmn, that sounds nice…

I have resolved to spend my weekend doing the things I am passionate about which I derive pleasure from, and not necessarily things that seem important. You get me right, important and passionate are relative words here.

I am incredibly consistent in some things that seem important which I am really not passionate about. So, am hoping that the 30 days exercise will get me into a routine. And my fervent prayer now, is to deal with my attitude and ensure I keep to my plans.

Therefore, I hope I don’t run out of the will-power and self-discipline to complete this challenge.

Perhaps, I will finally, finish reading two books that occupy space in my mind as well as in my room. Haha!

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s, “Americanah”.

AND

Taiye Selasi’s, “Ghana Must Go”.

Wow! I guess a few chapters a day from these two amazing Authors, who are great story tellers will do the magic quickly.

Hey, it’s another Friday and am happy to be in your face, again. Maybe this is something for you, too.

Engage in things that you are more passionate about, more important things that you truly derive pleasure in.

Have a lovely weekend and keep smiling!

Peace and Love. 🙂

  1. You may enjoy African Delights by Siphiwo Mahala. I recently heard Taiye speak at a litfest and loved her thoughtfulness and word expressions. Somehow though I just couldn’t get through Ghana must go.
