What is your name and what do you do?
My name is Oluwaseeto. I’m a brand designer
What is your favorite time of day?
I think it depends. Personally, I enjoy Saturday mornings because I can slow down, make myself a really nice breakfast, and watch a show. I also enjoy weekday evenings because I get to unwind after finishing work.
How do you relax and unwind after a long day?
My self-care routine depends on the day and how I’m feeling. On most days, it involves cooking myself a nice meal (or getting really nice takeout) and settling down to watch a show while eating it, with candles lit. On other days, it’s all about settling in with a really good book and losing track of time.
What does self care mean to you?
Over the years, my definition of self-care has evolved as I have learned more about myself and how I view life. Currently, I believe that self-care means giving myself grace, prioritizing myself, and doing things that bring me joy. At other times, it means pushing myself out of my comfort zone to grow and challenge myself because I know what I’m capable of. Another way I practice self-care is by romanticizing my life. I now understand that no one is more responsible for my happiness than me, so I take that very personally.
My biggest achievement is building the life that I want. It’s still a work in progress but I’m
thankful to be able to do this.
“I will bless you with a future filled with hope—a future of success, not of suffering.” Jeremiah 29:11 CEVOluwaseeto
What is your affirmation for the month?
I don’t usually use affirmations, but I have a few Bible verses that I read to bring me comfort.
“I will bless you with a future filled with hope—a future of success, not of suffering.”
Jeremiah 29:11 CEV
“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Romans 8:31 NKJV
What makes you feel accomplished?
I find satisfaction in accomplishing tasks that I set my mind to, no matter how small. This can include trying out a new recipe, finishing a book, hitting a personal record at the gym, or completing work tasks and clearing my to-do list. Celebrating these accomplishments along the way has taught me to appreciate every step of the process.
Whats your favorite thing about 1964 ?
The clothes are extremely comfortable (and great value for money)
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
I’m not sure if it’s the best piece of advice ever, but one that has stuck with me recently is “No one knows what they’re doing.” It was said in response to my fear of taking on work that I have no experience in. A close second is “It’s okay not to have any grand goals sometimes. It’s okay to live in the moment and enjoy a season that you’ve been looking forward to.”
