Monthly recap 02, Bennymakachi blog, monthly recap post ideas

Hey loves!

We made it to the end of June. Who’s excited for July? I am. I am!! I am!!

I love monthly recap posts. It’s basically me summing up my month in words. Brief, yes! But, still you get the idea.


Some of you are probably wondering why I’m so excited about July, yea? It’s because June was an absolutely horrible month for me and I can’t wait to chuck the deuces.✌🏾 let’s just go right into it shall we?

 Monthly recap, Bennymakachi, June monthly recap 02

Blogging: I didn’t in any way plan to be lax with blogging month but it just kind of happened. I told you guys here and here why. I lost some of my readers as a result of this but, there’s only so much I can do. I still love you guys. This month was probably the most stressful time for me blog wise since I became a blogger. I’m just glad that I have a little idea about how to navigate some of these challenges now. Thank you, so much to those of you that reached out to me with help and suggestions. Y’all are amazing! On another note I’ve got some ideas I’d be working to make my blog more exciting for you guys and all. However, this month is gonna be a busy one for me guys. I’d try as much as possible to update at least once a week. Until I get what I need to do out of the way. Then, it will be a jolly ride all the way! Stay with me, please! 🌸

Fitness: Boy, I started out really well. You know… better posture, double the weight size I used to train with, more endurance and stamina until life happened and I began to miss 4-5 days straight out of a week. For someone who works out 5- 6 days a week. I don’t need to tell you how terrible that is now, do I?

Emotions: Phewww! Where do I start? I had a roller coaster of emotions to last me two years this month. Ha! Joke? I kid you not. From the frustration of my blog getting hacked to regressing on personal journeys that I’ve made so well and come so far on. It was a mess. Have you ever found yourself in a spot where you almost feel stuck. You know… you don’t know what next? It’s a bad bad place to find yourself in. Especially, if you someone that always has things in control. You find that you’ll put so much pressure on yourself because you believe in yourself and you’re probably mad at yourself for slacking. I tell you what I did. I paused. I’m still on pause as I write this. I’ll be on pause for a while till I organically become fluid enough to flow to the next chapter.

Lessons: The most important thing I learned this month is that sometimes the past is just what it is. The past! Let that memory of it linger, enjoy the thoughts and what it felt like. Because, trying to recreate or relive it might be the biggest mistake you make. Imagine, enjoying a bomb ass,soft, hot freshly baked bread, then you hear the door bell, go check who’s at the door and come back to a cold, unappetizing chuck of bread afterwards. You seee?? It just won’t be the same. Of course there are exceptions to these things. There’s no blueprint as to whether going back to a career, friendship, business partnership or bread, even would be a win or lose. But, there’s a reason why it’s called a ‘past’. Thread with caution. ⚠️

Be strong but kind to yourself: A lot of times I end my blog post with the saying “Be kind to yourself and others”. It’s because I mean it. If you’re someone who is naturally a strong person. You know… the one who friends and loved ones can always count on or go to for advice and stuffs. You get so used to giving and they get so used to taking that you start to forget that you need a shoulder to lean on too, someone to talk to, someone to listen to you, someone to make you laugh. and you burn out. Still, you put on a brave face and you keep on giving anyway. They forget to really enquire about your wellbeing and continue to take. Guess what? It’s bad for you and you’re being unkind to yourself. Because, the minute you find the second or person to vent to or let it all out to/with. It might be too much for the time or person to handle. So, while being kind to others is a great thing to do. Do not forget yourself. Be strong but kind to yourself. You deserve it.

There’s fun in letting go: I swear there is. Just might wanna be mindful of the particular thing you’re letting go of but, still. You’ve been wanting to upgrade that laptop of yours but your new saving habit is giving you the side eye. Blindfold yourself and get it. Been liking that guy on Instagram and you’re about to explode? Tell him how you feel. Are you a side chic in love with the guy? Tell him… boy bye! Control freak? Let go… even Wonder Woman has off days! You’re in a long distance relationship and you miss your babe so much you can’t wait to suck face. Make the move, travel down there! The world won’t fall apart because you let go for once in your life.

Live life. Enjoy the moment!: Finally, if there’s anything I can boldly say I did this horrible month of June. It’s the fact that that I enjoyed the moment. At the back of my mind I probably was going berserk at a decision I was making at some point but, if it felt good and I knew I would enjoy it… be it a minute, I went all in. I tell you what? I don’t regret a thing. You know why because, I’m human and I’ll never always get it right. Heck, the great people we admire today had and still have their moments of turmoil. But, most of them had their turning point as a result of a ‘ live in the moment’ type risk or decision. Nobody’s life goes 💯 as planned. Nobody! So, while I’m alive… I’m gonna live my life and enjoy the moment.
