So, it’s been raining cats and dogs here in Zaria – Nigeria. How are you doing? Hope your day went well! Hey! Don’t go to bed yet. Day 3 of #BD30DaysOfCreativity is here. Find below, my entry.

3 Things I Wish to Improve About Myself

#1 – I take everything to heart: I am a highly sensitive being, therefore, any word said to me goes straight to my heart without any form of shield. Chai! Although it has its good side; I love easily / have compassion easily and so on. But the fact that hateful words get to me is enough reason to work on it. So, I am currently trying to curb this very bad side of me.

#2 – I shut down on people when I’m troubled: This is another part of me people have to put up with. I’m always in my feelings once in a while, where I don’t want to talk to anybody even if its my Inamorata. I wish i can learn to open up to the right people.

#3 – I have a subtle stubbornness: Once my mind is made about something, so be it. Sometimes, it works as a strength and other times as mere weakness. It can be a pain in the a**.

Thanks for reading…

Do make your entries below as usual… Cheers!!! I can’t wait to read them.

    • Not at all – not boring. I have a feeling this is written from deep within. The first step in changing anything at all, is by acknowledging it. I do hope that you become resilient and never give up easily. Gracias

      Cheers,

    First, I must commend you for sharing your other “self” which many might not have known until now, and this new knowledge will help many relate with you better.

    Second, I’m curious to know the meaning of “Inamorata?” Don’t think I have ever come across such an expression. Is it akin to the personal god AKA “chi” in Chinua Achebe’s ‘Things Fall Apart’. 🤣

    Hi guys, it’s lovely to swing by here tonight.
    We got an interesting talking point : 3 things to improve about one’s self.
    For me :
    1. I will love to improve in my book reading hobbit. Since I’m a filmmaker / filmeditor, I mostly spend my time on the computer and seldom read a book/ magazine / article
    2. I will like to improve in my financial management! I usually spend as it comes.
    3. I am always positive in every tough situation and I do not challenge some wrongs that people do. Well I think in some cases, I should try and address the situation to help better the life of the other party. Hopefully I would want to improve in handling such situations.

    Super thanks!!!!
