One Thing At A Time

One Thing At A Time

Multi-tasking and I? Let’s just say we’re not the best of pals, okay? I’m the kind of person who can either do one thing at a time very well or many things at once not very well – at all.

Oh sure, I can paint my nails while watching a video in the background, but recently, as a slew of bigger priorities came my way, I dropped the ball here and there. Also, I’m very bad at painting my own nails so maybe I really shouldn’t be watching renovation videos while doing it. Gorgeous decor can be very distracting.

I don’t know how people are able to keep multiple plates spinning at once. I mean, kudos to working parents, man. The only living beings I’m responsible for are my cat, my plants and myself and it feels like a lot.

I’m pretty sure to anyone looking at me from the outside, I kind of look like I’m a houseplant myself because I don’t seem to be doing much at all. It’s because my brain has taken a holiday without me. It took one look at my To-Do list, felt overwhelmed and ran away. You know that feeling though, right? You have so many things to do and end up doing nothing at all because you’re overwhelmed? Yep, same.

I was distracting myself by looking at pretty things on Pinterest when I came across a quote that said: “Focus on the step in front of you, not the whole staircase.” I don’t know about you, but that was free wisdom right there so I took it and ran with it.

One step, one thing at a time. That’s all I can do right now. That’s all anyone can do, really, according to this article on The Atlantic on why some people are better at multi-tasking than others. If you’re one of them, send me some tips, eh?

Until next time, have a good week, lovelies.

Life Update: A Season of Changes

Life Update: A Season of Changes

Hello lovelies, it’s been a while hasn’t it? I couldn’t believe it myself when I saw that the last I’d posted to my Instagram was about a month ago!

Honestly, I didn’t even realize how much time had passed because these last four weeks have been quite the ride, let me tell you. From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, the shift in seasons has stirred up the beginnings of many changes to my life, personally.

Basically my uniform these last few weeks.
Denim Jacket and Top – Forever 21
Trousers and Slip-ons – H&M

The first of many of those changes is that I have officially begun the process of changing my name – well, truncating it to be more precise. In my mind and heart, I have always been Aimesha Kurbah – no more, no less – and I have mostly referred to myself as such, including on my socials. There is much history behind it all, but I won’t go into it further. At least, not for now.

The second is a change to my state of employment. A new job, a new chapter awaits me and I am very much looking forward to it. I’ll forever be grateful to my friend and lou, Boo Boo, for sending the ad for it my way because I had completely missed it by myself. What I did to be blessed with the best friends I have, I’ll never know.

As for the rest, I’ll keep those to myself. I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m good; and that the happiest moments I’ve had these last few weeks were the simplest: just me, my loved ones, my boyfriend and my cat just chilling and enjoying some lovely sunshine and great food (of course).

My love goes to all of you who have stuck by me while I was taking a much needed break. Thank you, my lovelies.

A snapshot of one of my many simple, happy moments this past month. I think Mavis may not have seen my intrusion into her personal space the same way though.
