I remember as a young 12 year old girl, I couldn't wait to grow a pair of huge BREAST as big as the ones I saw on adult women. I would stuff some tissue paper in my school socks and tuck them in the nice bikini top, I wore under my uniform, the pink one with the blue stripes, my Aunt Joy bought me from Italy. That's how much I wanted my breasts to grow...the same breasts, I now wish...20 years after, would go down a cup size, just because of the amount of EFFORT it takes to keep them firm and beautiful even after one child. (See, why you need to be careful what you wish for) Hahaha. I now realise that fixating on it was pointless...especially since I have learned that Growing old takes time...And Growing up takes WORK. Darn! But I have also learned that you don't GROW by just ageing. You actually grow WISE by feeding and nurturing your MIND...as you do your body. As Albert Einstein said, “The more I learn, the more I realize how little I know.”
This year I have read 52 books (45 EBooks and 7 Physical books). I have visited 270 Blogs & Websites, Bought Online Products (From Membership Subscription to Widgets and Plug-ins), Attended 8 Webinars Online, 5 Tele-Summits, Listened to 16 different Kinds of Podcast on Acting, Marketing, Business, Blogging, World Politics, Spirituality, Entertainment and Self Development...I have Participated in 8 Online Workshops and taken 5 Different Online Courses...I have met Influencers and Networked with them...(Plus I have loads of events, I somehow couldn't make). Now somewhere between all of these, I have to create my Own ORIGINAL Content for My Blog, Radio, Book, Podcast, Talk Therapy et all (plus promote them)... And I still have to Feature in Movies as an Actor, whenever I can or Attend Collaboration Meetings... And oh, I have to raise my son too. (So about that excuse you're planning to spring up) Honestly, You are not more BUSY than I am.
Do you remember when I first designed this blog...and then my Official website?...What it looked like then? And what it looks like now? (You should visit www.AlexOkoroji.me) Have you seen the recent changes? The GROWTH? Aren't you surprised that a woman with no computer background or Web Knowledge can Configure, Design and Manage her own websites herself, 100% and I'm loving it. What's the point I'm trying to make? See, I am NOT the same person I was, when I started the year (I'm sure you too have changed as well)...But I'm referring to the Metamorphosis that culminates from Mental Achievements. Something I have derived from challenging myself and understanding the use of the internet.
The Internet and Social Media are Valuable Learning Tools if used properly. It's for so much more than just reading Gossip or Posting Instagram Pictures and seeking for 'Likes' and Validation that add no tangible value. Use it for what it can really offer You. It has made information GLOBAL and put the world in your palms. If you want to Grow, you will have to seek it out. For you are not going to live long enough to EXPERIENCE everything yourself. So its beneficial to feed off the Wisdom and Experience of other people from around the world...because you can NEVER know it all. Take what you can and GROW with it...and don't stop GROWING! Because to be Adult is way different from being GROWN. So even though my breasts sprung out at 16 and by 21, I was already an adult. I can't compare the woman I was 10 years ago, to the Woman, I am now. Not because I am ageing but because everyday, I am not afraid to invest in myself. I am not ashamed to keep building my emotional intelligence and seek for any valuable information that can make me a better person. I am consistently learning something NEW daily and growing wiser.
