Embracing Consistency & Passion

Hey Friends!

I hope 2017 is treating you all well. I have to
say that  during this fairly long winter break that I am on,  I have been embracing more of the importance of Consistency & Passion. Especially  since I have been pursuing a certain job position in which requires a lot of interviews and training.

There has been a huge amount of reflecting on my part because I want to make sure that when I start school in about 6 days I am well prepared & not dwelling in the past or lacking any motivation.

My aunt and mom once told me to find something that you are really good at and passionate about and roll with it, be the best you can be in it, whether that is;  writing, teaching, I don't know maybe even dancing! Grab a hold of it, be consistent & claim it as yours. Be the expert in it.

I write this because  I am going to be in my last year in college and honestly it hasnt been easy at all, and it will not get any easier because that is the way life is. I have been failing and getting back up and failing and getting back up again.. But I am still staying focused on the path that will lead me to where I want to go.

So I challenge you to find that one thing you are passionate about and good at, let us stay focused on that path and see where life takes us!

P.S: I want to do a Q&A really soon! I have NEVER done one and I really enjoy reading Q&A' s. So if you have any questions about Me, you can send them through my Twitter,
Instagram , or Email me at   nickki.opara1@gmail.com :)

Okay, Carry on!

  1. This is such a great post! Consistency and passion are so important, but we can loose sight of these in modern day life. I pursued music performance. I loved it an got into one of the top colleges in the country with a scholarship. Unfortunately, my health has meant that I had to take some time out from playing and I've not been able to become a performer like I once hoped. Despite this, I've focussed my energy on what I can do and am now teaching and learning a new instrument for enjoyment and personal development. It's been a bumpy road, but I'm glad I've rekindled my passion for playing. Good luck, I know you'll find the right path for you. Xx

  4. I hope your final year of college can run smoothly for you, life is definitely tough and remains tough with challenges as we go through it so learning to get back up and brush it off, as you've said, is a very good skill to have!

  5. Reading this just inspired me a lot! I agree, being consistent is so important when it comes to following your passion but it's something I need to work on. I have this quote next to my desk which says 'what defines you, is how you rise after falling' and I think that's true. There will always be times where we get discouraged but we need to stay focused on our passion and keep going :) I'm wishing you all the best for your final year at college x

"Don't Let Fear Stop You From Living" 

Someone retweeted this quote on twitter and I immediately opened my computer to start writing. I typed it out like three times because it really stood out to me. I have been thinking a lot about the concept of fear lately, especially with all the chaos going on in our world today. After the unfortunate event at Manchester I knew that I wanted to write a post revolving around fear because lets be honest I and I am pretty sure everyone reading this is or has been carrying a inner feeling of fear in their spirit.



What thing/s are you scared of at the moment? Maybe school, losing friends, the future, death, violence, making sacrifices, new job, losing a job, the list can go on. I think so many times we are focused on putting on this face as if we are invincible and have tough skin that we totally forget that hey, you are human and it i…

To The Student Who Is Taking Longer Than Four Years To Graduate...

I have not written a college related post in a long time so I figured why not, especially since this particular one has been on my mind lately. As it seems a lot of people have graduated this month I want to start by saying CONGRATS! to you all. It has been so exciting to hear about all of your post college grad life and your plans for the future.

With that being said, I want to speak in particularly to the student who has not graduated yet, maybe you have one more year and you will not be graduating in that expected four year mark.. or maybe you are still in community college and feel stuck among the waiting lists and endless GE requirements. I'm writing to that student who is scrolling through Instagram looking at all those grad photos of your classmates from high school and your thinking "that could of been me" "that should of been me" "Maybe if I had.." " Maybe I should of.." I want you to pause with those thoughts and the scrolling and …

Family Violence. // We Have Lost Love In Our Homes.

There was a recent report from TheGailyGrind that I came across on Facebook, in which broke my heart. A mother admitted to ambushing and killing her gay son because she could not accept his sexual orientation..




I was filled with a flood of emotions and thoughts and  just ranting a little paragraph on Facebook about it was not enough. I had to go deeper.

No, I will not be discussing whether I am for or against gay marriage. Although that topic of gay rights is crucial and needs attention, that is not my main focus of this post.

Love. Family: Your Flesh And Blood.
Those words are most likely going to be repeated in this post more than once.

Correct me if I am wrong, but when you decide to have a family you are committing to going through peaks and valleys with these people in your life. They are the ones you see when you wake up and before you go to bed, they are the people that are suppose to display the first example of Love.

I think we all know first hand that being a teen/young adul…
