Overwhelmed...



Do you know when I said 2020 will be the year I would achieve big things? Well its happening. It’s the 20th February 2020 (20.02.20) 22:22 (my angel numbers at the moment by the way, i’ll explain later) and I am totally Overwhelmed. In the good sense of the word. 

Today, my managers informed me that they were nominating me for the hospitality’s 30 under 30s. It’s an award which recognises managers under 30 for their hard work and dedication to the sector. 
I don’t know if I mentioned before but I began my hospitality journey in the Richardson Suite at WBA I actually hated it there because of the manager. Then I moved to the boxes and absolutely loved it. The crazy thing is, my Grandad supported WBA, he said he got off the plane from Jamaica into the Hawthorns. I’ll explain later lol. My bae played for them at the time but at reserve level I believe. For it to then be the birthplace of my whole career and I didn’t even know it, is wild to me. 
So today, being an Operations Manager of thee best hotel full service hotel in Birmingham makes me so proud. Yes we have stats to prove it ;). 

Sorry for the digression but It wouldn’t be my blog without a side story lol. 

This nomination has really overwhelmed me. I listened to my role models say such lovely, heart warming things about me. So lovely that when I got home I just cried. Real tears of joy. I’m not even an emotional person. I just cried because I couldn’t believe the person they were writing about was me. Another tear dropped writing this. It’s just that its second nature to me to look after people and have fun whilst doing it, so to be recognised not only for my hard work but because of the person I am,  really overwhelmed me. 
Honestly, the managers I have around me and that got me to this point are the very reason why I am the way I am. I owe them so much. Most of which are STRONG women who I truly admire. 

Truly. 
I am Grateful. 
Thank you. 

Those that know me, know how much I genuinely love my job. It’s true what they say do something you love and never work a day in your life. That is how I feel, even when my alarm goes off at 5:30am and when I get home after midnight some nights. I could not even be shortlisted but to even be considered is a huge win for me. 

22 
My angel number that I keep seeing. 22 is a powerful sign from your angels that you are on purpose in life and about to turn your dreams into reality.  Coincidence? I think not. Lol. 
Pay attention to numbers guys! I’m not sure my nan would have approved but they mean something lol. I know my guardian angel would be so proud of me right now. 

I miss you...

Thank You ...

Woman to Woman with... Tita!!!

missltj_ Bonjour amies sœurs You may be wondering ‘why the french hun’, well its because my sis speaks french and its probably the only words I know from GCSE french and she hasn’t taught me much lol.  Now I am soooooo freaking excited about this. My bestie has come through for an exclusive on my blog. Eeeek! You will love reading what she has to say because she is wise beyond her years. As a sister, I respect the way she politely checks me when I attempt to come to her with my unreasonable foolishness (I say this begrudgingly *CoversFace*). Out of all of my interviewee recordings Tita's was the longest, she talkkkkkkks this will be a long read kids lol.  Lets get into it... So Tita tell us about you... So im Tita, I'm 26 and from Burundi, Africa. I was raised in both Burundi and Belgium and currently live in Belgium. Yeah Belgium and Burundi Stand UP! lol. I was raised by a single mom, a very loving hard working single mom and I am her only child. I also have

Fearless

The Mighty Women of Wakanda /ˈfɪəlɪs/ Adjective;  Showing a lack of fear. You may be wondering why I’ve chosen this picture so let me explain. These women scream fearless to me. They stood and faught for their King and didn’t really know the extent of the battle they were facing but did it anyway for the greater good. Kind of like me this week minus the physical aspect.  This is one word I truly battle with.  Growing up I was taught to fear nothing but God and then came a spider in the bath, sharks, swimming in deep water where I cant see my feet. These are my three of my biggest fears and public speaking being my fourth. So what did I have to face on Tuesday? PUBLIC SPEAKING!!!!  My public speaking fear stems from a summer club we used to attend as kids at my nan’s church. I was maybe 7/8 years old. We all had to stand and read a passage from what I think was the bible. I cant really remember. I just remember practicing loads and then when I g

Three Little Words...

Flowers bloom when they have everything they need... Don’t Force It! Three very important words. More important than the infamous ILY words. Ha! Yeah you thought this was those words didnt you. Nah. Not this blog ;) So why a blog about these words. Ive realised that good things truly come to those who wait. I’ve realised that as time goes by i’m not as patient as I use to be. Sometimes its good and at others its like sh!t Chess your impatience is going to get you into shit. Like for example; For the drivers out there, have you ever driven fast or cut someone up for no reason and then there you both are at the same traffic lights together. Lol. It’s just unnecessary you’ve not gained anything for that dumb decision. Yh this is the dumbness I do. Sometimes! Like chill.  In 2020 I need to have faith in Gods timing. Wow. Thinking about it actually makes me cringe. Sorry this is my anxiety kicking in. Why have I lost that patience. Oh wait I know. The fact that 30 is cree
