What do I want out of life?

Leaving school and moving on to discover what life has to offer is pretty exciting but at the same time nerve-racking. I’m open to so many opportunities but I feel a little muddled by them. At the end of it all, it’s about what I want out of life, this is not definite but at the moment here’s what I want

  • Happiness

To quench my self doubts and just get on with it so that my life doesn’t feel like it’s one step forward and two steps back. I want to be in touch with life, enjoy every moment in it, be myself and brave all odds while hoping this makes a positive difference for people close to me .

  • Love

The best feeling to me…and I know expressing or receiving love requires ACTION. I’ve learned this in 3 simple steps. Loving God, Loving myself and Loving others. Wonder why I put loving myself before loving others? Pretty simple, you cannot give away something you don’t have in you. I want to love in all ways possible and be loved back. Love to me is being part of the largest family you can imagine and yet find time to connect with everyone in a special way (I’m 100% african, everybody is family!lol), love to me is having lasting friendships that create never ending bonds, love to me is helping those in need, love to me is sharing my passion with others.


  • Peace of mind

I want to be free of worry or fear, maintain a calm head all through and work step by step to improve on my self-confidence. I want to erase the idea that I have to be in constant competition with anyone to make any progress in my life, the only person I’m competing against is the person I was yesterday. I want to let go and let GOD because then and only then can I have peace that surpasses all understanding.

  • To know Christ

I want to know Christ, to feel connected to Him at all times. I want to attain a level of spiritual maturity and endless joy, experiencing His love, goodness and faithfulness in my life.

  • To leave a legacy

I want to live a purposeful life with great intention and I want to be able to say I made a positive change that impacted the lives of all around me. I want to find my calling, live it out to the fullest and be remembered for it.


In the light of my thought, what I yearn for is to feel peaceful, to be relieved of self-doubts, and to engage in meaningful work.
