Now that we are well into the new years and gone back to our usual business, at least most of us. I wanted to share some of the things I have been up to. For starters I’m trying to get some type of routine with a newborn baby around it so different…… but also enjoying my maternity leave. Here in Canada, we have the option of taking a year or 2 years off work, I settled for a year, ask me how I feel in another 3 months.
With my mom around helping me with the baby I get to go out with friends, have some me time even if its an hour and just chill. I catch some new movies on Netflix last week. Lion Heart by Genevieve Nnaji and El Ganador by Nicky Jam. Listennnnnn, I don’t know if its the cold winter and a cup of hot chocolate that made me enjoy these movies more or the fact that they are actually really good movies. Let me start with Lion Heart.
Lion Heart was created by Nigerian actress and producer (Genevive) and trust me when I say the movie resonated with me in every way possible, The character Ada- I could relate with her struggles, her role as the 1st daughter and her ambition. I am trying not to give any spoilers but if after this post you take time out to watch the movie and don’t like it then I have failed you. The script was well acted out I thought, the transition was done nicely, I can go on and on but I see why Netflix bought the movie.
Now to Nicky Jam’s El Ganador, I find this doc-series informative as Reggaeton artist Nicky Jam takes us through his journey, growing up in the States and in Puerto Rico, his struggle with drugs and his rebirth. Its a 13 episode and features Nicky Jam himself. I particularly fall in love with this series because I lived in Colombia for 2 years plus and that was how I first found out about reggaeton music and artist such as J balvin, Daddy Yankee etc. from then on I fall in love with Nicky’s music hence why also because I have 1st hand seen what drug addiction does to people so I was particularly interested in his story. You might say who has time for a 13 episode series well that’s what I said initially but I got hooked after seeing 2 episodes and finished it overnight. Thankfully my baby was sound asleep.
Let me know what you think about these movies if you decide to see them please and what do you recommend on Netflix so I can Binge watch.
I remember going into 2018, I was at a friend’s house in Bogota Colombia, watching the New year’s countdown with my boyfriend and her husband. My vision board was packed with all I wanted to achieve since I was almost done with school not knowing I was gonna get pregnant in a few days and have my 1st baby in September 2018.
Moral of the story – I still don’t know, lol. All I can say is that trust God and your process. It will produce an incredible outcome even you wont be ready for. My son as opened so many doors in my life I cant even begin to imagine. I am indeed grateful to God for giving me my son.
2019 also as a vision board to appreciate all the little things most importantly.
It has been over 2 years I was last on any type of beach vacay or relaxation.
I was overly excited to go to the beach this time because I deserved it. Like for real! 2017 was some year, to say the least, and for me, a place like a beach draws me closer to my inner self and peace. Their is something supernatural about it, so here is to starting 2018 with huge dreams and _______________
Fill in the gap with whatever you like to achieve this year in the comment section.
For me – one of the many things I want to achieve is to create or be on a major broadcasting platform. Radio, Tv or Magazine.
I spent my new years eve reflecting on the year, my mistakes, achievements and a better 2018. I had arrived Colombia on the eve of Christmas. it doesn’t help that the celebration happens on the 24th rather than 25th but I digress. And what is Colombia with a cup of coffee? I’m not a coffee person but I had to indulge.
Reflecting and chit-chatting over Colombian coffee was a great way to clear and reinforce on the year ahead. I know it’s a cliche but as every passing year, we get older and hence have to redirect our life goals and wants. I wish you a very prosperous 2018 and let’s do more of what we desire and makes us happy rather than what makes people happy.
