Sankofa is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that translates to "Go back and get it".
It is often depicted by the two images on the side from the Asante Adinkra symbol which is either a stylized heart shape or by a bird with its head turned backwards while its feet face forward carrying a precious egg in its mouth.
Where I am from going back to reflect, recollect and evaluate one's life is so important.
Just like in the west, various anniversaries are set in place so one can remember when they started something. It could be a new job, a marriage , a new venture and what have you. For the purpose of this blog, Mine today is just revisiting why i started this blog in the first place.
In my Attempt to "go back and get it" , Ushering in this new year had its moments for me. My birthday and my Marriage anniversary both happen in December. Like every other birthday of mine, I reflect on the past year and see what I did, what I could improve on and where I grew. I reflect on events that happened over the year and how to approach it in the upcoming year.
I started becoming Mrs A as a means to share my journey with young girls all over the world. Almost as a look book for myself and my younger selves out there. This will include my journey as a Christian, a wife , a mother and a woman.
Its a learning curve for me, honestly. I dont think I am much of a writer but i know my experiences are relatable and I hope that it can be of help to people. To be honest and i mean this... if there is only one person out there that reads it and it helps, I will be more than delighted because then i would have paid it forward.
Please comment and like and check out my artistic journey as well. It is very appreciated.
What have you "gone back to get" this year and how do you plan to achieve your goals?
