The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

Twenty-seven­teen is of­fi­cially here and whether or not yuh ready, yuh betta fit up yuh­self fi tek it on! Life is not easy but we can try and make the best le­mon­ade from the limes thrown at us, and use stum­bling blocks to lift us higher. More time, it’s all a mat­ter of per­spec­tive. As mi granny woulda seh ev­ery­body have dem sore foot, but it’s about reach­ing down into the core of your soul to find your pas­sion, pur­pose, and drive so you can be the best ver­sion of your­self. The time some peo­ple tek fi chat, class, and bring down other peo­ple they could spend the time try­ing to bet­ter them­self! New Year’s res­o­lu­tions are not to just be writ­ten down and left to gather dust, but they should be at­tain­able goals for which you are pre­pared to put in the work and achieve.


Start off with that which is achiev­able and start where you are.

It is im­por­tant that you be­lieve in your­self and your abil­i­ties! Ja­maicans are blessed as be­ing ar­guably the most creative peo­ple on Earth!

We need to tap into our en­tre­pre­neur­ial am­bi­tions and step up we money game so that we can have mul­ti­ple sources of in­come!

Fi all who can cook, bake, sew, con­struc­tion, what­ever tal­ent yuh have or hobby fi di 2017, mek we see how we can mon­e­tise dem!

It is un­wise fi just a waste yuh tal­ent and a give it weh fi free and not ben­e­fit­ting from it!

Mi want en­cour­age unnu not to be afraid of suc­cess! Yuh have some peo­ple who want yuh fi al­ways deh a scratch. They will dis­cour­age you from do­ing any­thing to el­e­vate or up­lift your­self be­cause dem big an lazy and no have no am­bi­tion!

Check yuh cir­cle and see who yuh have inna yuh cor­ner be­cause your cir­cle can de­ter­mine your al­ti­tude in life. Don’t be afraid fi step out in faith.

Pray to Fadda God and beg him for guid­ance and pro­tec­tion as well as to send help along your jour­ney to ac­tu­alise your dreams!


Start use the In­ter­net and the smart­phone dem fi bet­ter unnu life, in­stead just fi fass pon peo­ple page and leave neg­a­tive com­ments.

Try and do some­thing pos­i­tive ev­ery­day to up­lift your­self and oth­ers, and yuh frighten fi see how yuh life can turn around care­less­ness cut out!

Mek we tek the time to de­sign the life we want and be true to our­selves about the things we need to change weh a hold we back from be­ing the best ver­sion of our­selves and fix them.

It won’t hap­pen overnight but the great­est thing is to start.

Let us live 2017 with pur­pose, and mek we go get ev­ery­thing they said we couldn’t have.

Love unnu, all the best! Lalalalalalalalalalalalala!!!!! if the
