I actually wrote this post on Sunday via my Blackberry only to discover it was saved as a draft smh. Anyhoosmu, read on…..
I have mentioned before how Alyssa Milano is the best celebrity to follow because she shares the most interesting things. Today she shared a link to this blog which had 20 questions one should ask themselves every sunday.
I found the questions quite insightful and I thought I’d answer them here..
What did I learn last week?
- Patience is a virtue, that I need, that I pray to acquire and that I pray for others to acquire as well.
- I have family and friends who really care about me. I pray I can be as good to them as they have been to me.
- Optimism is a scary concept, and so is pessimism.
- I have no idea what I want..
What was my greatest accomplishment over the past week?
I survived my first week post leave. It was hard, sucked big time, but I survived till the end.
Which moment from last week was the most memorable, and why?
Last week was a huge struggle for me. Most of it sucked, but Friday was not so bad. So I guess my most memorable moment was lunch on Friday, I enjoyed ugali and mukimo!!! Imagine!
What is the 1 thing I need to accomplish this week?
To make a decision about my future and the way forward.
What can I do right now to make the week less stressful?
There is nothing much I can do right now to prepare myself for the week, unless maybe just to mentally prepare myself for the week ahead.
What have I struggled with in the past that might also affect the upcoming week?
I’ve struggled with many things, acceptance, fear, sadness, hurt, hope and these things will still take a toll on me this coming week..
What was last week’s biggest time sink?
I know what it was, and there is no avoiding it this week…
Am I carrying excess baggage into the week that can be dropped?
Yes, but I doubt it can be dropped immediately…
What have I been avoiding that needs to get done?
I need to finish some things that have been pending.
What opportunities are still on the table?
I just have one, and I am just wondering whether it is one worth grabbing or I should just let it go all together..
Is there anyone I’ve been meaning to talk to?
There was someone and I already spoke to them 🙂
Is there anyone that deserves a big thank you?
I thanked them already but well, thank you once again 🙂
How can I help someone else this coming week?
I am trying to figure out who needs my help, do you?
what are my top 3 goals for the next 3 years?
I generally do not have specific goals, just those general ones like to be successful blah blah blah.
Setting proper goals can be my first goal.
Becoming a manager by next year is something I must somehow achieve.
Have any of my recent actions led me to closer to my goals?
What is the next step for each goal?
Now that I only seem to have 2 goals, the next steps are to get motivated and inspired to want to make more goals.
And to work harder to get to where I want to be careerwise.
What am I looking forward to during the upcoming week?
I really need something to look forward to. I cannot think of anything right now.
What are my fears?
- That I will be misused simply because of what my role is.
- I may never be the same again.
- I am loosing myself by compromising so much.
- That my efforts will go unrecognised.
What am I most grateful for?
- Family and friends who are amazing.
- Good health.
If I knew I only had one week to live, who would I spend my time with?
I think I would spend it with everyone who I hold dear to my heart. They are many but somehow it needs to be done.
I hope I can make it a weekly ritual to answer all these questions.
