Happy new week world! My weekend was full of life. And by life, I mean it consisted of making lots of fish rolls, watching 3 epic movies, going to church, visiting a restaurant and eating the best salad of my life. Now that a new week is starting, I am all fired up to face all the things that make up my life. And I thought it would be great to pen down some of the things that keep me going.

1. Cooking

I can’t even begin to explain the kind of joy that feels my heart when I’m in the kitchen whipping up something. My kitchen is my happy place. I love it.

2. Books

Oh man, there are treasures in books. My plan is to unfold every treasure for me tucked away in books. Reading a book is one of my favourite things to do at the end of the day.

3. Teaching

I LOVE the fulfillment that comes from being able to teach my kids. It is priceless, I tell you.

4. Mr N

I love him. That’s all

5. Church

I love my church so much. I never enter that building and return the same. Praise God!

6. My Kids

I can never get over how cute they are and watching them grow is just one of the biggest blessings of life.

7. This Blog

I LOVE my work here. And the messages I get from people everyday telling me how much this blog has helped them. Those keep me going.

8. Food Photography

I’m in love! I’m learning new things about photographing food everyday. It is such a creative experience.

9. Food

I love to eat. Ha.

10. God

Without Him, I am nothing. He is my all in all.

Here are the top 10 things that keep my life going. What are yours?

Have a beautiful month of May, friends!

  1. I think we share some similarities in the things that keeps us going, just that have not been reading enough lately and photography is a big chore for me
    My job is a factor that keeps me going as well, though it can be draining, but the satisfaction I get when my patients are fit to go home is priceless and it takes me days to get over the loss of any of them.
    In all, God is a factor I can’t do without, He gave me all I have!

    1. Amen, Bola!
      I love how your job gives you satisfaction. There’s nothing like being able to do a job that you truly LOVE. You are blessed!
      And God… without Him we are nothing.
