4 reasons why I am excited about 2016 and why YOU should be too!!

  • New Mistakes (DOing MORE, sayING less)

I believe this year, well each day of this year will be a chance for YOU and I to build something new, to try something and of course to let ourselves make new mistakes. I am hoping to let go of all fears and just DO, so stay tuned. Remember “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” (it could leave you broke (but money is just money), it could leave you hurt (but hurt is temporary)…what we stand to accomplish is WAY much more) so LET GOOOOO.


  • To see more of Africa (and the world)

I spent a considerable amount of time and money in 2015 exploring destinations from the Maldives to Jordan, Singapore to Indonesia. Even though it seems to those around me that I have explored too many places but with each trip I made, I felt that I had much more to learn about the world (I remember laying on a cruise boat in Halong bay (Vietnam) and thinking “how the hell did I not know this existed”) and I am hoping to do more exploration this year starting with a trip in less than 2 weeks (yay!!). I am also looking to explore more of the African continent, it’s very easy to focus on what is elsewhere “over there”, not realising the beauty that lays right by our feet.


  • Learn more about one’s self

I used to think I knew who I was 100 percent but with new experiences, challenges, LIFE hitting me, I have realized that I had changed daily. Even though the core of my beliefs have stayed the same (sometimes tested), I realize that I unlocked new facets of who Sassy is with each experience. For me this is an exciting revelation and I am looking forward to getting to know ME (the good, the bad and the ugly).


  • Feeling settled in my home country

If you are a regular to my blog, you will know that I recently made the move back home to Nigeria (a country which I haven’t lived in for near 14 years) having being educated and living out in the west. I am looking forward to seeing how much I would have grown (both personally and professionally – hopefully positively) here. I have only being here 4 months and loving my move thus far but I think only after living for a year will I be able to have a better perspective of how I feel about uprooting myself from the west. (This reason is a more about me so may be less relevant to you lol)


Why are you excited about 2016? I would love to hear YOUR thoughts, visions and plans!!! You never know how you could inspire others so don’t be shy with your words. 🙂


Much love
