Life update

I haven’t posted on here since 2020 and I just realised that my profile, for me anyway, is a bit like a diary. A collection of things on my mind over the years.

Life has taken a turn in some good and bad ways.

My business survived Covid, I guess that’s the biggest achievement to date - it was a real struggle at first, we lost a lot of recurring income as clients had begun to stop their spending all at once. Can’t really blame them, the whole world economy had just come to a halt. But I gotta count my blessings, four months into Covid life we pretty much doubled the team, revenue shot up and life was good. Hated working remotely though. My office was definitely more of a home than my own home.

My younger sister got married and move out and they’re happy.

My older sister and her son finally got their own place and moved out too!

I felt quite relieved that I didn’t need to take care of them anymore. I felt like a proud ‘dad’ watching them finally step up and take responsibility of their own individual lives and I’m grateful that I was able to support them for as long as I did.

The little brothers been in and out hospital most of 2022 so far. His overall health is diminishing day but day. We had quite the scare when he had to be put into an induced coma and connected to a ventilator, with all his disabilities, the doctors assumed he wouldn’t come out of the coma at all but through Gods will, he did! Forget grateful for all the time I have left with this dude. He truly is the glue in my life and I wish I could care for him more.

Mums been a bit all over the place, she’s beginning to acknowledge the limited time we have with the little brother and it’s taken a toll on her, both mentally and physically. I guess, I’m just trying to ensure I can facilitate the ultimate retirement plan for mum - probably relocate to another country where she can rest, enjoy a different culture, away from all the negativity that’s affected her life.

Me? I’m just surviving one day at a time. Just a life full of responsibilities. I’ll rest once I’m in the next life… 🙃
