Aaaah ha! It’s here. It’s finally out of my head, darling.
This post has been nibbling on my brain for hours, days, weeks, should I say months? I’d rather not. Lol
How have you been? Really, I want to hear. Before I delve into the world of wonder that February has been, tell me, would you?
I’ll remind you to at the end of this read.
February holds record as my most delightful month so far and I intend to walk you through every bit of the amazing experience.
My month began with the release of my 2nd professional examination timetable. It was abruptly moved forward by about a week and I had 6 days to prepare for the examination to mark my exit from the class I’d been in since 2019.
By January I’d already started making gratitude notes every day. On those notes I wrote
“Today I am grateful for my 2/2 pass in Laboratory medicine and Pharmacology with no resit or repeat. Hallelujah.”
I made an affirmation of my expectations and used it as my home and lock screen (I shared to a few friends).
Then I created a playlist on Spotify for this period and I had it on repeat to remind me every moment of the possibilities I was creating with my words.
I’m blessed with the most amazing humans in my life as friends and family members. Every single day for the whole week leading up to the exam I received food deliveries. I got local delicacies, shawarma, small chops, food from home and my dad made a special arrangement with a local restaurant to ensure I have food every day.
Whilst my department is yet to release the results for the examination, I’m grateful for the entire process.
In this period I experienced the love of community. I have this close knit study group that met almost everyday from 31st December to study and yet another of about 22 persons that studied in the evenings. Most nights I’d have virtual revision sessions with some amazing doctors God blessed me with in this season
And cash flow! I received alerts in this season, enough to cater for all my needs.
My friends and school family (Nesisi, Stells, PP, Awase, Ansah, Serah, Nachi, Idee, Nwike, Ella, Dee, Bree, Nenita, Cece, Ojochegbe, Sheddy, Dorcy, Uteey and Mi), and my doctor community (Dr A, Dr AJ, Dr J for jollof, Dr Atox and Dr Li) and my nuclear family were beyond rock solid.
Post-exams, I returned home to tender love and care. My both parents got me gift items. You know, every day of last week I received a gift. Lol
I’ve been manifesting goodness and mercy this entire month of February and it’s almost overwhelming how much love God can give one human.
Theeen, there’s my hair. Lol. This dear baby is 8 months old. Drum roll, please. And she’s 12.5 inches stretched out fully. However, my locs beg to differ. 😂
Lastly and possibly most importantly, February saw me starting a podcast—the healthy ALian.
The first episode is published and available on Spotify, Anchor, Google/Apple podcast and wherever you listen from.
I will put out new episodes on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of every month and honestly? I can’t wait to share this month’s episodes with you.
I also did a course on digital storytelling and I’m pleased to use that knowledge to serve you better.
So then, now that you’re up to speed on what I’ve been about in the past month and viewed the gallery of my million little miracles I’d love to read yours
How was February for you, dear ALian? Tell me in the comment section.
May March bring Peace and health.
