People, Places, Things

We went to Umbrella Rock in Boti... it was such a long hike that I forgot to take a pic of the rock so I stole this from google. Still a cool sight:) And the rest of the pics were taken by me!

Me and my girl, Lois!

Believe You Can

I see myself as a positive, goal-oriented person but I get bouts of anxiety from time to time. I can see that since moving to Ghana, such crippling worry has greatly subsided and I am thankful that I had a year off to really learn how to breath, reflect, enjoy, and appreciate. Swapping the "go-go-move-move" lifestyle for "putting one foot in front of the other" has been something I have had to learn to practice and eventually adopt as a way of thinking. At times we can get so ahead of ourselves that we fail to savor the blessings that God has given us today. I was doing that in the beginning of my trip: obsession with over-planning everything. With time, I learned that it's okay to have a great time and travel but it's also okay to relax and observe. I've learned to pray because I want to talk to God and not because I need something soon...and fast. I've learned a lot more about myself in this past year and I have to say that today, I am happy to be me. There was a time way back in the day that I was so caught in trying to be what I thought others wanted me to be that I struggled to be truly happy, truly in love with myself.
Moving to Ghana was a huge deal for me, I shocked myself by even believing that I can go this far in life. I always dreamed about my goals but I had a way of waiting until "the right time" or feeling that that dream "wasn't for me". Whatever in the heck that means. Now, I have this eagerness to go higher in my professional career and set higher standards and goals in other aspects of my personal and spiritual life.
I've come a long way and I am so excited to see how God is going to continue to refine me. I just wanted to take this moment to say thanks to Him. It's the goodness of God that brings out the best of me.

I've been to paradise and back.

Nana and I treated ourselves to a blissful getaway a few weeks ago. We stayed at Fanta's Folly, a serene, perfect beach resort outside of Takoradi. It was perfection. The weather, the water, the resort itself: perfect. The water and the seclusion was just what I needed that weekend. I loved it.
Our canoe trip

That same weekend, we visited Nzulezo, a stilt villagen outside a town called Beyin. We took an hour long canoe trip to the village. We could not have chosen a better day, it was absolute bliss. I never realized how drawn I was to water until that canoe trip. I can't swim but I kept fighting the urge to jump in and try! It was amazing....
Some other pix:)

Ghana has started a huge dance craze that is sweeping over the world. It took an article form BBC for me to finally sit down and blog about it. Azonto. I’m still getting the hang of it but man, the dance dey be…. There’s a swag to doing the Azonto that makes it so versatile and fun to watch/do every time. This is not your “crip-walk” or “Harlem Shake”. I think it’s here to stay. I am glad to be in Ghana during the time of the Azonto.
Enjoy below and youtube for more!
