Looking Back 2019 Goals Reflection

Looking Back 2019 Goals Reflection. Hey guys, wow, it been a while since I have done a reflection. In this post, I am going to share my reflection of 2019. Before I set goals for 2020, I want to take a look at 2019 and have a reflection of how strong young woman I have grown into.

Looking Back 2019 Goals Reflection

My daughter 5th Birthday

The year started with my daughter’s 5th birthday. I was very proud that day. I hosted a party at our apartment and boy, the preparations were stress full and expensive, but seeing how happy she was and having fun with her friends, made it all worth it.

Dated for 7 months

So yes, I was in a relationship for the first time since 2013. I am not saying this was the first time dating since 2013, but it was my first relationship since then. It was smooth in the beginning, a little uncomfortable because I started getting jealous and a little paranoid because I didn’t want the honeymoon period to be over. However, the break up was completely unexpected. But I guess we were both not happy when feelings get in the way.

Got Accepted to HNC Administration at college – Dropped out

2019 was a great Academic year for me. For the first time, I completed and passed the 2nd year and made it to the Higher National Certificate. However, due to circumstances, I had to drop out.  I felt depressed that moment, but it was the biggest achievement in my life to get through to HNC level. I do have plans to go back to complete the course, but I don’t know when.

Went to Nigeria for the first time in 15 years

My family and I went home for the summer holidays. I was super excited to be back. The holiday was very special because this was my first time to see my family in 15 years. I enjoyed my time. Sasha-ann had a great time too. I am currently making plans for a holiday in 2020.

My daughter started Primary School

My daughter and I had come back to the U.K a little earlier because my daughter was starting school and I had to prepare her for it. I was so proud of my daughter. She has been doing great since she started. I can see her development and to be able to witness that, it just makes everything special.

I got My dream Job

Yes, baby, I got my dream job. After years and years of hard work, rejection after rejection, I finally found a company that found faith in me and decided to give me a chance. I couldn’t believe I got the job. I gave Sasha-Ann I huge hug when I picked her up from School.

Got A New Apartment

There was no better way to finish off such an amazing year than getting a new apartment to live. Everything was going so well, I just knew it was time to get a new apartment in a safer environment for my daughter and I. 2019 indeed a great year.

Did I fulfil my plans in 2019?

Well, you read my previous post ‘ My Goals and Plans for 2019’, I set a list down everything I wanted to do in 2019:

Save Money

I tried my hardest to save money, but that plan went off because we went on expensive trips and got a new apartment.

Study/Work Hard

Yes, I would say yes, I achieved this goal.

Hangout with friends and family more

Yes, I tried to hang out with family and friends. I attended parties and occasional events with family and friends.

Explore the world with a short break

Yes, apart from Nigeria trip. I did take a lot of short breaks across Scotland.

More me-time

Self-care was very important to me. However, there was a lot that went on this year and I felt there was not enough time to practice it but taking short breaks with my daughter was a great way to relax and refresh myself.

What lessons have I learned in 2019?

Do not take the people or things that matter to you for granted. I spoke about finding love in 2019. Love is hard, but you got to love yourself first before you can love someone else. If you love someone, tell them you love them. Do not leave it or think he or she might notice it or just magically know. I have also learned that life has its own way of doing things and there are somethings that nothing matter how hard we try, we can not control it. All we have to focus on is how we react to it. At the end of the day, we are all humans, with a different mindset and different goals.

Did you achieve your goal?
