As a wife and a working mum, it can be challenging sometimes to get everything done. From school run to making sure there is home cooked meals, 24 hours can seem like 2 hours in my eye if I am being truthful.
Even though getting everything done can be “crazy”, I am not that woman who make excuses not to achieve the things I want to achieve or do. My believe in life is if there is a will, there will always be a way.
I do my best to always find a balance between family, work, play and everything I do or I want to get done.
One of the ways I keep track of some of the things I do or would like to achieve is that I write them down.
I have always wanted to have a platform where I can influence women to dress well, look well and be who they want to be and I knew I wanted to do that through Fashion. When the season was right in my life, I started and that is WHY there is Moj in touch.
Before Moj in touch was birthed, it was on my to do LIST. If I didn’t write it down, I probably wouldn’t do it or follow it through if it was only in my thoughts.
Back in the day, I used to have a diary where I write my thoughts and feelings. Now I use a journal to document my thoughts, prayer requests, the things I hope to get done daily/weekly/monthly etc. I also document the things I am thankful for and I do not forget to give myself a pat on the back for the things I have achieved.
YES, it is important to celebrate your good works. Most of us beat ourselves when we don’t get things done but we forget to celebrate the ones we get done.
Please always give yourself a pat on the back when you need to. Trust me, I do it and it is my feel good factor.
Reasons WHY I use the journal or WHY I write things down.
1, For writing my thoughts and ideas down.
2, For self accountability.
3, For setting goals and checking back as a reminder to achieve them.
4, So I do not forget the things I am thinking. An idea comes to me in a flash, I write it down immediately.
5, For prayers, thanksgiving, aspirations, living intentionally and on purpose and more.
I consider journaling part of my me time. I enjoy it.
Do you use a journal or do you write things down? Would love to know what you do please.
I will encourage you to draw up a strategy where by you write things down and always go back to check them as a reminder to yourself of what you need to do and when you need to do them.
Last year, while working with some start ups / brands. I had to do some research to get information on people we were working with. While doing the research, I found out that one of the top bloggers; if you like one of the “most influential bloggers in Nigeria” wrote some of the things she has now achieved down. You may know her, you may not. She is Linda Ikeji.
Journaling or writing things down is not for mums only. It is for everyone who is passionate about goal setting and realising them. Perfect for Students, Working class women, Stay at home mums, Daddies and every one really.
The journal I use is one I would highly recommend to you. It has different section for different purposes. It also has personalised notes of encouragement from the amazing Author. The size is also perfect and would fit into even the smallest size bag.

Now unto my Look!
Lately, I have been loving the wide leg pants / trousers and I have been wearing them a lot. Today, I paired my grey wide leg pants with a white and grey high neck blouse and a coloured jumper to add some warmth to the neutral colours. To finish the look, I matched my shoes to my jumper and I also had my clutch and journal with me.
I brought the journal on set so I could share it with you just like I share any other things with you from Nude lipsticks to Skin care. Since today is Motivation for Monday, I thought to share my journaling story just to encourage you.
Always remember that when you write things down or Journal, you are more likely to do them and be thankful for them than when you are just thinking about them.
FASHION TIP TODAY ::::: HOW TO WEAR BAGGY ON BAGGY
Did you notice my jumper is a little baggy?
I wore this one because I wanted to experiment with pairing baggy on baggy.
The safest thing to do when wearing baggy pants or trousers is to pair them with fitted blouses like I did in this monochromatic look.
For petite ladies who want to create the illusion of a longer frame, the wide leg pants would do that magic for you. Flared pants will also do the same for you.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I am aways very happy to see you stop by. How was your weekend?
I love reading from you, do leave me a comment and tell me about your own journaling experience if you do.
And what do you think of my mix of wide leg pants on baggy jumper. Let me know below please.
Wishing you a fantastic day today and as always, God bless you with his love and peace now and forever, amen.
Much Love, Mojisola.
