Happy new month my sugar pies:-):-):-)
We are halfway done with 2016...can you believe it?
How was the first half?
Are you happy with how life is?
Was it quite the struggle? Do you wish you could fast forward to when things will be okay?
Whichever way it has been, I hope you will learn from it and keep growing.
Life is too short to stagnate.
Let yourself take the baby steps towards progress.
If it is healing you need, allow yourself to be whole again by opening up yourself to forgiveness.
If it is a dream you are chasing, keep at it.
Do one thing every day, even a little thing that will take you closer to your ultimate vision.
On my end, things have been pretty beautiful.
Your girl graduated and got a job... So we can say that is one dream down:-):-)
And in celebration of that I am thinking it's about time our little home over here got an upgrade so we will be moving to Wordpress soon. The site is already up....
But I am still working on it but when we do move I will make it pretty grand... So until then please stay here.
Another reason for the wordpress move is for some of you who find commenting on this space a bit hard. With Wordpress you can comment whichever way you like even anonymously so to my ghost followers you can continue ghost following only now you can comment anonymously too... *yaay*. :))
But while we wait for all that.. Here is what I have been upto lately... enjoy!
Making: My Wordpress site. Our official move will be marked by a post about what achieving one dream has taught me.... A major milestone so subscribe!!!! You won't regret it that much.
Drinking: Tea. Because in Kenyan offices it is almost like a law to drink a hundred cups a day...
Reading: Nothing new. But as I type this it is less than 24 hours till the Caine Prize winner for this year is announced and I am excited. I read the stories and every review and author interview about them I could get and they are all such stunning pieces of fiction. I am rooting for Bongani Kona's At Your Requiem. It was the kind of story which is simple but the author's narration style had me hooked. Although I do admit that Lesley Nneka Arima's When A Man Falls from the Sky is the kind of different which should also not go uncelebrated. I am honestly torn. (read all the other masterpieces here).
Wanting: A tablet so bad. My excuse...it will make reading and blogging on the go so much easier.
Playing: Make that about to uninstall Candy Crush. I am stuck on a level and have been for a month now...sigh.
Deciding: That this month I am going to set goals and achieve them. I work hard but I feel like I am not achieving anything concrete so that is going to change. All those things I have been meaning to do but get lazy to, I am determined to start again and reach them.
Wishing: For world peace and for people to stop hurting each other. News is so scary these days. *Prayers up for the world*
Enjoying: My job. It gets hard. It gets scary. It gets frustrating. But I thank God that this is where I have been put to serve.
Waiting: For the weekend. Because sleep. That is all.
Wondering: If it's normal to love my cats the way I do. I was feeling lazy this morning until I heard one of my kitties meow loudly. Then I got my ass up to see what the problem was.
Loving: On my superman. Happy 7 months you beautiful soul ♡♡
Watching: Black.ish. I think it is the funniest black comedy I have seen in a while. And Diane is totally family black sheep goals.
Wearing: My pyjamas. It is bed time!!!
Sorting: umm pass...
Buying: Lipstick. Fashiolleta is my hero!!! I bought a Colorpop liquid lipstick in the shade Creeper from them and I am impressed by the products and their effiecency. I am definitely getting more.
Bookmarking: Alex Elle's social media pages. I find her writing healing. And so emotionally and spiritually encouraging.
Hope you enjoyed my musings.
Have a beautiful month and keep shining.
