The last couple of months have been quite the ride. When the year began, I promised myself that I’d make this year a year of change for myself emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically more like getting out of what I’ve been accustomed to over the years and daring to be different. What I didn’t know was that it was going to be really scary, painful and above all uncomfortable. So many times I broke down, so many times I wanted to give up and said fuck it, so many times I thought I’d had enough until the last two months where I decided to LET GO AND LET GOD. I had a woosah type of moment.
Howdy howdy! Isn’t it crazy that the year is almost coming to a close? I still can’t wrap my head around this fact cause that year has flown whaaatttt. It’s just the other day we we’re sending new year messages and making resolutions and setting our goals for 2017. Damn! Amazing things have happened this year I must say but also came a few challenges like loosing a loved one and experiencing the most craziest ridiculous encounters EVER. But that’s what life is about. It can’t always be perfect. Actually it’ll never be perfect. Sigh!
I’ve ditched them heels, body con dresses and gowns for a minute until this weather decides to behave. 🙁 One day is hot one day it’s cold. This is basically how I’ve been dressing up the last couple of months given how the weather has been so brutal on us. I’ve never been a fan of casual wear but I think the cold weather has made me appreciate cool hoodies, sneakers and denim even more. Half the time I’ve been showing up at the office dressed like an eskimo with NO makeup on. My!
The other day I was having a very raw and honest conversation with one of my friends. I was telling her how I have come to realize that I hold a very high expectation of people in my life, almost as though people ‘owe’ me. I imagine that since I have been there for them, then they should be there for me. Or since I have invested in a friendship or a relationship then it ought to last for ever. But the harsh reality that has finally dawned on me is that I am entitled to nothing.
Mamamia, this weather though! Eishhhh! Is this where we now pack my bags and go to Canaan? And wait, I’m the only one who wasn’t getting this joke? Haha...Well, that aside, I think I’ve talked versatility before and there is nothing as comforting as having different pieces in your wardrobe that you can switch up every now and then to achieve a different look.
Howdy-howdy! This is another series of my #TembeaKenya posts that I’m super excited to be sharing with you guys. Let me start by saying that Kenya is amazingly beautiful guys and I probably had one of the best weekends. It’s been a while since I went out of town and let loose a little bit. Sometimes Nairobi can be so crazy and you almost get lost in all the pressure and forget to live a little.
There is no greater feeling than giving to meet the needs of someone else’s life. Not giving because of what you want in return or because of a sense of obligation, but freely giving your time, talents and treasures to be a blessing to someone else. It’s incredible how we managed to raise KSH80,000 in less than a month and honestly this really made my heart melt and couldn’t stop but think of how amazing and giving the CCS Kenya team is. Getting a group of guys across every age group who have so much passion in changing lives is extremely commendable. 🙂
It’s been a week since the Annual OLX SoMA awards event was held and I’ve taken a step back the last few days to just sit and think about the whole experience, what I’ve learned so far in regards to blogging and with that said, I have a few tips to share with you. If you are an aspiring blogger out there who is perhaps wondering how to maneuver through this blogging streets, this article is for you.
Live a life full of color, they said. I had a blast this past weekend with two of my friends at the Kenya Color Run that took place on Sunday at Uhuru gardens. The event involved lot’s of color, music, running and dancing despite looking a hot mess thereafter but this didn’t really come as surprise cause what do you expect from a mini holi festival? You know, when it comes to giving back to the community, I’m always sold. Messy or not. I’m down for it any day, any time. However, the main goal for this years run was to promote peace awareness in midst of this election year as we celebrate Kenya’s rich ethnic diversity.
Howdy howdy! Oh yes, I made the cut and got shortlisted under the New Blogger category for this years 5th Annual OLX SOMA Awards. SOMA Awards Recognizes & Rewards Brands That Use Social Media To Transform Lives and to be recognized by SOMA is like a dream come true. I’m still in awe and to be honest, it came as a surprise to me. Being nominated has just raised the bar even higher for me and motivated me to continue creating great and impactful content.
