Just woke up. I have for the last week tried to wake up before 0600hours which has had me wake up between 0445hrs and 0600hrs which is impressive. I’m having a cup of tea while catching up on updating the vlog. Have you noticed site changes? Now you can support my work by donating while I also work on a few exciting projects that I can’t wait to bring to you. Funny enough I am still excited about this year… the discomfort has really pushed me. It’s difficult though make no mistake.
One of the things that I love very much is to read biographies and auto biographies…in fact its most of what formed my read list this year. I like how personal stories break down some of the people I admire to chunks that I can relate with.
So B and I sat down on the channel this week to give some little stories of some of our encounters in a video of answering personal questions. Hope you enjoy it.
love and love,
When you set resolutions, the plan is usually to keep them. its almost a declaration of steps you want to take to make your life a little better. Basically to become a better human being. As the year progresses, life deals you a number… issues get in the way and you slowly forgot what you had set your mind to. taking that into account, I have found it important and extremely necessary to have mini reviews quarterly and a mid year review to center yourself and slowly return your eyes on the goal.

So last weekend was mother’s day. My time line, as you would expect was full of sweet and amazing mother’s day messages outlining how great everyone’s mother is and how they are irreplaceable. Which is a great thing..
So voting day is tomorrow and there is so much tension in the country. We all are praying that we remain as peaceful as we are right now… and perhaps screaming from the top of our social media platforms on how peace is a good thing, but we can’t deny the fact that we are scared, and tired and totally fed up with the election and tribalism talk. So in a spirit to distract myself for the next few minutes and also to engage you …. I jotted down these 7 things that I am truly grateful for/ reasons why I am happy. I would love to hear what you are grateful for as well because there is at least one thing to be grateful for.
So here we go:
I am happy because I have a best friend who has truly blessed me in many levels. I am grateful because I didn’t do anything to deserve him but I have him and he makes me so happy and sad and makes me think about my life in many diverse manners. I have learnt the real meaning of value addition through him. I am grateful for presence… because absence really showed me the importance of resent presence.
I am happy because I have a support system… my friends, #lecrew. I am thankful that they looked beyond our differences in beliefs, and tribe and religion and we came together and formed our own super culture that is friendship that has been enriched by our different views and experiences in life. I am grateful that I can call them at any time and I will get help in whatever way they can give me. I am also grateful for presence… just getting time to chill with these people is super refreshing!
I am happy because I have a family that I share life with. My folks and siblings. It would be lovely to say that we are the same but nope we are similar. Our experiences in life and our perspectives are different but I am grateful that we don’t have pressure to be the same.
I am happy because I have opportunities and I can use them to make someone’s life a little bit better… even if it means adding a level of idiocy in your life.
I am happy because I am healthy and I get to have something to eat, a place to sleep and facilities that enable me to express myself… and people to listen to my rants.
I am happy because my hair has grown… the struggle is real by the way…. Really looking into your lifestyle does pay off (of course with few cheat days). Health is one of those things I am not taking for granted this year… and having hair grow (healthy hair) goes on to indicate how well your insides are doing.
I am happy because I have you on board in my online family as well! Its super encouraging when you jot down stuff and people write back to say how helpful it has been to them. I also love that the family is growing, I see you on social media: twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Thanks for being around a lot, and asking questions or just saying hello.
I hope we can still be around after the whole elections hullabaloo is over… life must really go on and we can’t afford to hate each other because we have different opinions.
Love and love
