5 days late, but Happy July everyone!!

It’s hard to believe we’re in the second half of the year. It seems like just a few days ago I was trying to write down my goals for the year 2016! One of them was actually starting a blog / YouTube channel and apparently, my blog kicked off in February. You can read about why I took the plunge here.

I’m trying to maintain that outlook of being afraid, but doing it anyway. Thank you to all of you who read the blog! It’s been unexpected and without you, I just may have shut down – even though I said in this funny post here that I’ll keep reading even if no one read it. I also got nominated for the Liebster award! I’ll get around to sharing that ASAP.

Personally and career-related, a few things seem to be in the pipeline and there are still six months to achieve all that needs doing. So, if you’re still hoping to get started on something, get on it already!

I’m also so excited we are holding the career workshop! The response was overwhelming and it was so hard picking just 20 candidates. But hopefully, soon the entire structure will take shape and we can get sponsorship for a much larger event. 

Again, I can’t really remember much of what happened in June. It seemed pretty much like the usual routine. Going forward I think I’ll start writing down the highlights as they happen so I don’t forget. 

However, in the past few weeks there’s been some life lessons: 

1. It’s sometimes okay to share your vision

I’d always wanted to host / have a platform to talk about career related stuff. But left to me alone, only God knows how long that will have taken to materialise. But Mariam and I talked about this and we realised how much of a good team we could make. Pushing and encouraging each other. You may be great with ideas but need to work with others to implement them. Share your vision and collaborate – with the right people. 

2. You never know who is watching

So, I tend to forget that this is not an anonymous blog and people could actually recognise me. So in the past few weeks I’d had a couple of people say to me “Hi are you KacheeTee?” To be honest, it was kind of surprising. Especially as on the second occasion, I was in a bit of a quiet mood and may not have been the best person to be around on that occasion. I shared this on my Instagram already but also, strive to do your best in whatever you do, as people are constantly watching – even when you’re unaware. An article about the workshop which we shared on BellaNaija here had just a few comments, and we assumed not a lot of people were interested. But we were surprised to get a response from the Commonwealth Trust team, asking us for a possible feature in the magazine. We definitely didn’t see that one coming. 

3. Focus on the positives and ignore the naysayers

They’d always be people who see things different from you and intend to belittle you. Don’t get sidelined. And you don’t need everyone to see things from your PoV. I shared an article on BellaNaija on tips to get a scholarship for foreign study and someone chose to focus on my bio which stated “Igbo Girl, Yoruba Wife” believing that I was being tribalist. An attempt to explain didn’t get better. I felt a bit bad initially, but got over it. Why should just one person’s opinion count?  Thankfully, a majority saw the good in the article and in my bio. 

How was June for you? Lessons? Goals achieved? Any plans for the 2nd half of the year? 

Wishing you all the very very best of July, and an awesome second half of the year. 

Love,

Kachee

pS: If you read this post here, you know I totally wanted to visit the Olumo Rock tourist attraction in Abeokuta, Ogun State. I was there yesterday and it was awesome! Blog post soon hopefully!

    Kachee, glad to know that you are faring well. Happy to hear about the workshop. You are doing great things girl!About people recognising you from the blog, it has happened to me and it felt awkward and somewhat scary. I love to be quiet and hidden in my shell. I think I speak more through my pen/keyboard.There will always be naysayers. Some people are skilled in seeing something negative even in the most harmless statement. That article on BN is so helpful. You are inspiring many and that is what makes life so fulfilling.Have an awesome new month and a very blessed rest of the year!PreciousCore.com

    Kachee, your heart seeks to do good and your drive is va-voom. Don’t mind all the negativity. Let the negative vibes draw out your positive. June was jaw-droppingly busy for me. I’m not sure how I survived. Lol. Congratulations on the feature!

    Great lessons KacheeTee. Happy for you. Life has been amazing. Abi na?!I’m a sucker for #1. I share my vision in every slightest opportunity. It’s been helping. I feel more committed to it when I do.I love #3. Positivity drives me. It is a lifestyle. There is no way to survive without it. IGNORE THE NEGATIVITY. Yes!Lol. I really can’t believe someone would have any issue with your bio. I’m intrigued by it as a matter of fact. *repeats it* “Igbo girl, Yoruba wife” amakamedia.com
