THE CHRONICLES BY AYO LAWRENCE – 2

At the beginning of this year, 2023, I did my Goal Scoring – named my Year – 2023, ENLARGEMENT, came up with my 11-Man Team and walked majestically into it.

Alas, as the year unfolded, I was re-introduced to ME all over again (it reminded me of 2019, but this time the awareness was more intense – my tendencies, triggers and areas of improvement became so apparent. I learnt to sit with my emotions and process them as against tucking them away like I used to, thinking they would just go away, even though as a coach, I knew they would not, hmmm…..

I knew something had to change again, and I leaned greatly on all my meaningful connections.

I am grateful for an amazing support system I have on the home front – my Babe Oluwafemi Lawrence, our children the 3 Ts – Tos Da Boss Oluwatosin, Lady T Oluwatoyin, and TamzB, my siblings Bratoks, Brazeg, Sis Adefunke Fola Oyinloye and Sis Sola – Thank you so much, I feel so blessed

A lot of CODE RED alarms, with “can I call?” messages to PF Praise Fowowe, my Coach, and Mentor.

Modupe Ehirim and Funke Akoni – my adopted Mums, Omotayo PrevailBunmi AdesiyanAameenah Yunus-AliTrustedSupport_Counselling, Ebun Fawole, Ifechukwu Adigwe, Foluso Kolawole, Ayokanmi Ayuba, FolaFayo. Thanks a zillion for hearing me out those times I was at my wits end this year.

Jo-Jean Imoh-ItaIfeoluwapo Aribisala, Michelle Emoghware, Egede Peace, Oluwatobiloba Olumide Ajayi (Coach Tobilobs), Jane Willie, Empowering Working Moms, Omoyemi Becky Olatunji, Lola Ajani – Thank you for believing in me to hold your hands as a mentor, our relationship kept me accountable even when I wanted to fall apart like a pack of cards.

Diyolakingsleyjames , thanks for the heavily discounted RTT sessions I had with you and Oluwayomi Nakpoberuo, your professional support during the sessions was highly appreciated. God bless you both real good – a therapist indeed needs a therapist. I believe in what I do, and it was worth it.

UBUNTU, I am because you are.

Who are the people in your cycle? Who can you call on when you are in a not-so-great space? Do you intentionally create meaningful connections?

Think about these things as you KEEP LIVING-LOVING-LAUGHING-THRIVING.???
