I would normally want to say that this blog is about you. But that will be a big lie and probably put me in the category of bloggers who lie (whether implied, direct or omission) to their readers.
This blog is about me. But, beyond that, you will read;
Personal stories that INSPIRES..
Experiences (good or bad) that you will LEARN from…
Confusions and musings that will make you THINK…
Amateur fiction works that will make you KEEP COMING FOR MORE…
Amateur photographs (taken with phone) that will make you FALL IN LOVE with where I come from…
Personal growth tips, tricks and hacks that really WORKS…
and maybe more..
Hi! Welcome to this little space we’ll be sharing of mine.
I am Grace Esedeke (pronounced ee say day kay). The URL for this blog reads: creatingmfon. Where I come from (Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria) ‘Mfon’ means ‘GRACE’. It turned out ‘creatinggrace’ was already taken, so I had to go with replacing ‘Grace’ with ‘Mfon’
I love to bake, take photos, write, and read.
Because I love to bake, I also love to workout. This way, I keep fit and stay in shape while enjoying my treats. I am a sweet tooth at heart — always have been and always will be, from inception to today and this day forward– with a passion for Food, Food Science, Nutrition, Health, Fitness, Entrepreneurship, Personal Development, Photography and God.
Next year I will be turning 30.
I did an evaluation of my life so far, achievements, dreams, goals, failures, etc. I do this self-assessment every year, but this was more retrospective. And I discovered that;
I have failed more times than I would like to openly acknowledge and even in the tiniest little things that others might succeed at..
I have more regrets, missed opportunities..
I haven’t really dealt with my past and forgiven all that needs to be forgiven, even though I make myself believe I have…
My cake business failed because I ate my capital, and I haven’t been able to launch my other businesses… I deleted my other blogs, … which means no money, and I literally have to depend on my family(mostly younger sibling) for upkeep…
As a result, I am struggling/dealing with low self-esteem, low or nonexistence self-worth, depression, lack of trust or believe in me, negative self-talk among others..
I procrastinate a lot, I’m sure I could win a world championship for that..
My relationship with God and friends is going haywire and I’m almost not doing anything about it..
All in all, I am very unhappy and dissatisfied with my life right now.
It wasn’t always this bad. So,
I am giving myself a one year target to reinvent, recreate myself. To create the life I’ve always wanted. To get my business(es) started, launch my products and get out of this financial rut. To return to God. To get my life back on track before my 30th birthday.
I am using this blog as first my diary to keep track of my progress. To be held accountable. To share stuffs that works, my passions and many other random things I find interesting along the way. To learn.
