What She Said Podcast

Hey people! It has been a while since I have actually written anything on my blog!
Shame on me…I have just been adapting to life in the UK after spending 6 months away in Ghana. I will soon do an update video; as I have so much to share!

In other news I have started a new podcast called ‘What She Said’ with my friend Nana. We discuss from relationships, work, sex and more but from the point of view of two black women from the UK.

We aim for the show to be light and fun, but also to educate. After all knowledge is power!

So far we have done four episodes and are quite proud of what we have done. You can listen anytime, whether it be on your commute, at your desk at work or whilst you are chilling at home.

We aim to release a new episode every Thursday.

With that said, don’t miss out! You can listen on SoundCloud or iTunes. Below are the links:

The Adventures of 9th Prophet

So my good friend Whitney Q and I ventured to Amsterdam. Can’t lie was pretty geeked about this since its another country I can cross of the list.

Keep in mind we had to take a train from Victoria, to London Southend Airport then take the dreaded EasyJet to Amsterdam and a train to the city. So you can imagine I got a couple naps in.

So basically we landed and got a 1 day pass which pretty much lets you ride all buses and trams around the city. People are so friendly, and are able to guide you anywhere.

One thing you notice about this country. Cyclists rule the world. “Who runs the world?” Cyclists!  Or at least girl cyclists.

Of course I’ve been binge eating pancakes as of late so I saw a spot Pancake Amsterdam and got me a strawberry and blueberry pancake, definitely something I would…

You could have a dream/goal; you could be scared to take steps in making them a reality. Below I have some tips that may help make that dream come true.

Perfect Timing
There is no such thing as perfect timing. If you are looking for the perfect time, it is now. You don’t have yesterday’s time or tomorrow’s time but you have now. Of course this theory is easier said than put into practice. One thing I can recommend is to give yourself a deadline. So you can say by 30th June I would have done XYZ. Deadlines are there for a reason, it helps motivate you to take some action. Imagine all those years in school, your school teacher asking you to do homework but not giving you a deadline. Would you have completed the homework? Doubt it. Give yourself a deadline and actively work towards it. This is how you can make sure you are moving forward and progressing.

Change
Embrace change – If I told you that you will be in the exact same position as you are in now in 10 years’ time would you be happy? Most likely your answer would be no (well I hope so!). In order to progress in life we need to embrace change. Without change you will not progress. Of course we can encounter change when we least expect it (life is very unpredictable), but it is all about how you handle the change and the outcome of it. Outside your comfort zone is where all the magic happens.  So go with the ride and take on any change that may come your way.

Limits
The only person stopping you is … you. You can come up with a million excuses as to why you shouldn’t chase your dreams; it is not the right time, no one will support you, it won’t work. But ultimately the person who is stopping you from achieving your dreams is you. Don’t be your own worst enemy but be your own best friend. Believe in your dreams. You are put on this Earth with a purpose. Believe in it and work towards it!

Ask
Ask. Just ask. You will need help on this journey. This could be someone to help you build your website, or just advice on how to handle a client. You may think you don’t need anyone to help you with what you want to achieve. But you would be surprised at who can help you. There is no such thing as a silly question. We can’t be an expert on every topic, so just ask!

Prepare for the bumpy ride
Chasing your dreams is not going to be easy. It is not a smooth journey. There will be times when you will doubt your decisions and why you chose this route. When this happens, see how far you have come and think of the reasons why you decided to do this. Anything worth having will not be easy and remember the bigger the risk, the bigger the rewards

Too late?
It is never too late to chase your dreams. You still have the gift of today, so use the time you have to make your dream become a reality. Vera Wang didn’t start her designing until she was the age of 40. Ray Kroc bought McDonalds at the age of 52! So whether you are in your teens or in your 50s it is never too late. Also no dream is too big; if your dream doesn’t scare you then it is most likely not big enough. Go in wholeheartedly and have a good support system around you. Use today and don’t think that you should have started earlier. Past experiences may have been needed to help you grow to get to this point.  The past is in the past, you have the gift of the future.

 

As you go on this journey your dreams may change along the way. Let’s say you do achieve your dreams/goals you will most likely have changed them aspiring for bigger and better things, the sky certainly isn’t your limit!

 

Enjoy the journey.
