Meet the brutally honest blogger ‘2bechosen’.
About Me: I am 2bechosen, a confident, strong, 28 years old, single lady with a lot of persistence.I want to be a teacher in economics. I haven’t reached my goal yet. I will soon get there. I have Ghanaian roots and was born and raised in the Netherlands.
Being a woman: For me, the most important thing of being a woman is the gift I possess to care and nurture others. In the end, I want to be remembered for my love, care and help. Not the clothes I wore, not the nice make up I had on, not the fancy job I had, not the money that I would have left behind. I want to be remembered for the good things I did. At least, that is what I want.
Managing work and home: Me-time! I make sure that I have enough me-time. I am a single lady with no children. So you might think: what is there to manage? Well, I have a very needy family. I combine my free time with getting my house in order, visiting friends/family and having me-time. I get a lot of energy from me-time. This what I insist myself to do:
– take a long bath
– have a high-tea
– paint my nails
– put an facial mask on
– watch a movie/tv-show
– go for a walk
– go the gym
– read a book/magazine
– count my blessings
Coping with stress: When I am in stress, I normally hide in my house, which, I know is not a good strategy. I hide because I don’t want people to see me weak or in need. The best thing that I can do is: trust people around me to help get through this. Make an plan of attack and move forward. That is the best approach for me. I also tell myself that: this stressful/hard time is not going to last forever. There will come a time that all things will be peaceful again.
Mantra for Happiness: Everyone can create their happiness. For me happiness is a mindset. Trust me, I have been in a very dark place, I have had my share of low phases. One day I said: enough is enough: I am worthy of being happy, I am worthy of being a positive minded person. The next question to myself was: How can I be this person. How can I feel the opposite of what I am feeling right now? Guess what? I just needed to change my way of thinking. Which resulted to a positive way of behaving. A good way of looking, dressing, interacting with others. Everything will change if you change your mindset. Think positive and positive things will come to you. Its a process. Do not think things will change overnight. You have to be patient. It works!!
A tip that you would like to share: Women are unique and blessed. God gives the hardest battles to his strongest soldiers. I believe we are the strongest. We are built to carry a baby for 9 months. We are built to nurture our kids. They all say, there is no harder job than being a mother. Its a 24/7, 365 days a year job. If He has given us such important responsibilities, then there is nothing that we can’t achieve. We have to keep in mind when you face obstacles on the road. Keep in mind when you need to climb a wall you never climbed before.
Whatever you need to do, you CAN do!
