Today is exactly a month since I started blogging. This is long lasting considering how awfully impatient I am as an individual; I knew full well that blogging would be a significant challenge and an enormous test to my level of my endurance. But am still here blogging and singing Rudimental’s ‘not giving in'( tune innit?)
Nevertheless, I am very proud of myself for having come this far and for having had the maturity to deal with the anxiety of what other people thought about my blog. I have also met some amazing people who took their time to encourage and support me with my endeavour.
I must admit that it knocks your confidence a bit when people completely ignore your efforts and even more hurtful is the lacklustre interest shown by some you have considered good friends. But it’s alright (saying in my Nigerian accent), you learn from every experience and the road to success is often rocky.

My children are amazing and very lovely but they excitedly announced to me that I am the softest mum in the world! Apparently I am nowhere near strict enough!
This is also a big blow to my reputation as a Nigerian mum. However, as long as they continue to be respectful, diligent and happy then I am ok with the ‘softest’ mum title.
I have now landed a new post as a Nurse Deputy Manager! My first ever managerial role and I am due to start in March. I thought to myself, ‘about
I am a good nurse and I absolutely love my job. With God by my side, I will definitely deliver as always.
Well done Jane! (I always pat myself on the back)
I hope you continue to be proud of yourself and never undermine your efforts.
Thanks and God bless.
