What no one tells you before you get married...

I used to think I had my stuff together. Then I got married....

Marriage is great, but it literally rocked everything I knew. I quickly realized my basic goal in life, prior to getting married, was to simply remain undisturbed.

This “disruption” came suddenly and was disguised as a 5-foot-nothing Swedish-Filipino woman. When I decided I’d rather not live without her, I proceeded to ask her to marry me - that is, to officially invite someone who wasn’t me to be in my personal space for the rest of my life.

Your Vote is Your Voice - Vote PK

I was in Nairobi recently and while I was there, besides registering as a voter, I got a chance to talk to many people and pick their brains on what they thought of the political scene in Kenya right now. Strangely enough though, most of them had no qualms whatsoever having an UhuRuto presidency. On following closely, I found out that most of the people I was talking to were older conservative folks who fear change. They would rather support the devil(s) they know than vote for new and fresh leadership.

Your Image Of You

Anyone (especially females) who rock short hair can tell you how traumatic it can be when one goes to the barber to get a hair cut only for the barber to cut the hair wrong. In most cases, to camouflage the bad hair cut, one goes looking for a headscarf, a bandana, a cap, a hat or whatever headgear they can place their hands on in order to hide the shame. Sometimes some people look like a badly sculptured image. The consolation is that eventually, the hair does grow back.

Time Flies

I had an opportunity to spend part of last week with Mum and as we were doing certain activities together, I realized how different things are now, and how much of our lives have been reversed so that what she used to do for me I am now doing for her.  It was a sad realization but one that I cannot ignore and so this just acted as a catalyst to strengthening my resolve to do as much as I can for my dear Mum while I still have the opportunity to do so.

Do those little things daily….

Is it just me or has this year hit the ground running, literally? It feels like the clock is ticking faster than usual, the minutes are shorter than usual and the days have less than 24 hours. It’s hard to believe we are already on the 2nd week of 2018. Week one is gone forever, never to be seen again; out of 52 weeks, we now have 51 remaining. If I may ask you, what did you achieve in that first week of 2018?

#52BooksIn52Weeks2018 Challenge - January Reads

One of the ways of ensuring you have a more productive year than the previous year is by reading as many books as possible. Books are not only a rich source of knowledge but also for inspiration and motivation. You might be going through a tough time in your life but when you read a certain book, the character in that book resonates with your situation, causing you to feel strangely calm and hopeful that if the character was able to turn his life around, then you too can.
