Married at 50

I met up with one of my old friends earlier this week and it was a breath of fresh air. Achieng' is her name. Now, our mums are the best friends in this story and because of their friendship, ours also grew. I can't quite explain it cos she is 21 years older than me…

Working From Home

Today I find myself asking why do we need to work from an office space? Okay, don't get me wrong, I'm all about teamwork and all but why not allow people to be flexible to work from wherever, as long as the job gets done? I have been called an idealist when it comes to…

Tribute to the Parents

I attended an event called Engage yesterday and it was their 8th edition and the title was Life. Love. Fathers. It was celebrating the fathers. It is a mixture of speakers and some of the most beautiful music you can ever listen to. The house band especially... Let's just say, I left there feeling that…

28 was a pretty good year

It is June 20th, that means the last day of one year and the beginning of a new one. I love my birthday. I love that it's smack in the middle of the year. I feel like I get a 2nd chance to do things again. Like I get to start another year, in the…

Happy Daddy’s Day

I am a daddy's girl through and through. I have always been close to my daddy. When I was younger, (cos I'm still young) lol, about 6 years old, Sundays were our days. We would always go together for a thorough car wash for his then white Datsun (that is a car brand, right? All…

Scoliosis – My Thorn in the Flesh.

Every day I wake up in pain, I wonder if things would have been different if it had been caught earlier? I mean, I do remember back pains when I was younger, but that was attributed to 844 and the many books we had to carry. And the pain came and went so no one…

Challenge Accepted

Yesterday was Sunday. I was at church. It was a good service. It was on finishing well. The pastor talked of how at times we start things with so much enthusiasm but as we go along, the fun kinda dies down and we start slowing down even to dragging ourselves and at times we stop…

LANES

My one and only sister is 12 years older than I am and so, no matter what amount of catching up I try to do, I'll never really reach her. She is one of my role models as she's an amazing human being. I remember a time in my life when I was trying to…

PRICE TAGS

When you walk into a clothing store, everything that's for sale has a price tag attached to it. Different designs cost differently and we know this so we can be able to tell at times, if the product has been over priced. There's once I saw a catalogue for Porsche cars. It only had the…

Today

If you are open and honest enough with yourself and the world, every day will be a learning curve for you, especially about you. I think it is most difficult to face ourselves. The truths, the failures, the weaknesses. Admitting stuff to oneself is most difficult yet the truth indeed sets you free. I am…
