Is it just me?

Sometimes it is so easy to fall back into the same traits of yesterday!

How many of us have said "yes when tomorrow comes I will do it…."

(My very good friend Aveedah is fond of this - Procrastination is Real!) We put off things till the very last minute. Many students today, know what I am talking about especially in relation to our assignment deadlines. We actually plan ahead to achieve the deadlines but we just put it off until we literally have one week left! I have decided that this year will be very different. As we speak I have already finished 3 assignments due in May and I have like 2 more assignments due then I am done! It was not easy but I am getting there. The struggle has been real.

I have made up my mind! I have decided that no longer will I leave things till the last minute! I will give my very best and my time! Nothing in life comes easy. You will have to put in the work if you really want it. Baby the choice is up to you! You can either work hard or give up! The question is how bad do you want it? Are you will to go to the battle front and fight the good fight? Are you determined to succeed? Do you want to make a name for yourself? Or Do you just want to be a mere statistic?

You will not believe that after all my hard work, I had some results back which was very heartbreaking. I put in all that work! I actually get deadlines done before 2 months in hand and yet I barely scrape a 50%!!

I ask myself over and over again! What is wrong with me! What am I doing wrong! This is totally unfair! I actually got to the point this week whereby I had enough of trying when all I do is get an average score! However that is life! Well it is my life! I will still not give up! I am going to give this all I can! I refuse to give up! Dyslexic or Dyspraxia is not my lord! I am going to excel! Not only for me but for those who feel like they cannot make it! I believe and I trust that God has my back! It does not matter if I cannot see results now! I will keep on going! I will not loose faith! Failure is not Defeat!

The moment you give up is when you loose the battle. I know right now in my life, things are not looking so good but I just have to believe that God will do it for me! He has not failed me yet so why doubt his ability now?

Today love, whatever you are faced with; do not loose hope!
God can do it!
He has showed up in my life over and over again and I know he will do the same for you!

For those who have deadlines and exams coming up - don't worry! What does worrying produce? Does it change anything?

No matter what your situation looks like;
Even if you feel overwhelmed;
He is saying " I am"!

Is there anything too difficult for him?
It may seem difficult;
But he is saying "I am"!

Today, learn how to put your trust in him and believe that "He is able to do more abundantly than you have ever asked for"!
