Here in Ireland, it is a bank holiday today. I believe it is the same in other parts of the world that celebrate “Halloween”. Although it is a bank holiday, someone like myself and many other online Entrepreneurs (Bloggers, Vloggers, Writers, Coaches etc) have to work. It is interesting when you live a lap top life because there is always something to do 🙂
Furthermore, even though I have to work, working today is one of those things I consider IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT! What do I mean? I will tell you that on Motivation for Monday, please stay with me.
October Blog Reviews (Look book, Beauty, Inspiration-“motifashion”)
For those of you who may be wondering what “motifashion” is, it is a word I coined together because I love Fashion a lot and I love to motivate so I decided I can have it all so I came up with “motifashion”. So motifashion is a mix of Motivation and Fashion and I have done that every Monday since the past 2 years +.

Motivation for Monday ::: Important BUT NOT Urgent or Urgent but NOT important
I suffered a set back last month. This one knocked me down. It was the loss of my nephew. If I am been honest, I have never been this down, I actually struggled a lot. I didn’t meet my goals for last month and this month too. It was one of the most challenging things I had to comprehend. All the same I am still grateful for the gift of life because I can still achieve more goals because I am alive.
That incident taught me a great lesson. It taught me what is really important and what is not. When we have our relatives, friends, distant family, we can relate with them but once they are gone, they are gone. This the reason why I wanted to share what is important and not with you today. Here are a few example.
Important BUT not Urgent:
These are things that can wait BUT has to be done. Example include:
1, Write this blog: if I don’t write it, I can always write it the next day.
2, Go to the shopping mail with a friend or have coffee with a friend : it is good to have a relationship with friends but grabbing a coffee with them is not urgent.
3, I love you son or I love you honey: although it is not urgent that you say to your son or husband that you love them daily, it is important to let them know so they can have the assurance that you truly love them. It is even more important to children, it gives them the reassurance that you will always be there for them.
4, Start exercising again: although exercise is important, it is not urgent. It is a lifestyle you can not rush.You have to get used to it.
And on and on and on.
Urgent & Important
These are things that can not wait. They are urgent and they are important as well. Examples include:
1, Having fellowship with the Lord daily: this is the most important thing any child of God should do daily. When you take care of this bit, every other thing is taken care of.
2, Enroll to take that new course before application closes.
3, Set up a standing order to start saving for the future.
4, Finish writing that book you have always wanted to finish.
And on and on. If it sounds urgent and important, it is urgent and important, so it shouldn’t have to wait.
All in all, we need to spend our lives and time on things that are important so we can live and achieve purposeful things. The truth is to be able to do any of the things listed above, we have to be INTENTIONAL about them. For example, it is not urgent to say you love your husband but it is important to say so, it is your reassurance to him that you do. Okay?
That is my quick motivation for today. It is important to live deliberately, intentionally and purposefully. It keeps you on track in life. What is important and urgent to me may not be important to you, these things are relative. So what is important to you now and what is urgent? Please share them with me in the comments below.
For Next Month (November)

2, I will be sharing more look books + impeccable styling tips, beauty and inspiration
3, VERY IMPORTANT : I will be sharing full details of my book. I have been working tirelessly on it for some time now but I suffered a little set back because of the loss of my nephew. I couldn’t focus so I stayed away a little bit. I am excited much and can’t wait to share this with you.
I do hope you had a fantastic October. Wishing you a favour filled November ahead and God bless you today and forever. Although I say it all the time, I sincerely want to thank you so much for going on this amazing journey with me. I love you all
