    We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called opportunity and its first chapter is New Years Day ~ Edith Pierce

    Happy Holidays to you my valued reader. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and Boxing Day, and you are looking forward to a great 2015. I can’t complain about my Christmas experience this year but I have to admit it was very different. This year we didn’t do BBQs or eat ourselves to constipation like we almost always do every other year, but we had a lovely time together as a family; yes, that... [Read More]

    It's that time of year again. December has come and with it all the joys of Christmas. This year somehow feels different in the sense that the Christmas mood somehow feels dampened. Actually it seems like as years go by, or as we grow older the excitement about Christmas reduces. I don’t know exactly why but I guess the pressure that comes with the season could be part of the reason. I think... [Read More]

    The word “Ebola” has been on almost everyone’s lips in the last few months especially after it started affecting people in parts of the world where it was never expected to touch. I have to admit that when I first heard of the disease a few years ago, I never thought it would be such a serious threat to the rest of the world since it was just in West Africa. After all, I lived (still do) in East... [Read More]

    If there is anything that is challenging, it is losing fat, especially belly fat after you have accumulated enough of it. It reaches a point where you get disgusted by the image you see in the mirror when you look at yourself because you just can’t believe how much fat you have accumulated around you. Well, I guess not everyone feels this way but I have to admit this is something I have been... [Read More]

    There is a difference between giving up and knowing when you have had enough.

    Technology and specifically gadgets seem to have taken over our lives nowadays. Majority of the human race either has a smartphone, a tab/pad, a smart-watch, a laptop or a desktop computer. We have become so dependent on these gadgets that should they fail for whatever reason, that becomes a great reason for us to suffer major frustrations. For those of us who understand gadgets, we do know that... [Read More]

    Every so often we are faced with moments when we have to make very tough decisions in life. During such times, it is normal to feel lost, sometimes you feel confused, other times you feel heavily disoriented, other times you feel unusure, afraid, etc - amid other very many unsettling emotions. The one thing I have learnt is that if your "why" is solid enough, then the "how" will fall in place.... [Read More]

    Wednesday was really not my day.  No, wait a minute, as a motivational speaker I cannot be negative, so let me rephrase that. Wednesday was a very trying day in the sense that by 3pm in the afternoon, nothing had worked as it should have. All the same I chose to stay positive since I was taught that a day has 24 hours and so far only 15 of those had  passed by the time I started writing this... [Read More]

    If you allow people to make more withdrawals than deposits in your life, you will be out of balance and in the negative. Know when to close the account ~ Christie Williams

    There’s nothing I hate as much as being on the road driving behind a driver who is driving at the speed of 10 Km/h on a stretch where he could do 200 Km/h if he wanted to. Worse still, you realize that the said driver is doing this on a segment of road where there’s no one else in front of him, meaning there’s enough road up ahead but he just won’t take advantage of it! To add insult to injury,... [Read More]

    For the last one week I've been learning a major lesson in adapting to change. I have to admit that at no point in my life had I ever imagined that simple things such as which side of the road one should drive on would ever be a problem for me. Until I stepped out of my usual sphere of operation (read comfort zone) and travelled to the Horn of Africa. Well, let's just say everything about this... [Read More]

    Your past mistakes are meant to guide you, not define you. Learn to separate your who from your do!
  • Mon, 13th Oct 2014
    Forgetting the past and moving on is easier said than done. Enough times I have struggled with many elements of my past but thankfully with prayer and trust in God, I have been able to let go. Maybe you are in such a place right now, a place of being unable to let go. If you can say this prayer and mean it, I believe you will get the strength to let go and let God. Heavenly Father, It is time for... [Read More]

    People do odd things when they are bored. Say for instance the guy I saw the other day trying to run backwards on a treadmill. I don’t really know what he wanted to achieve but if you ask me, that’s more like courting disaster, but like I said, guys do some really odd things when they are bored. Of course seeing this guy doing what he was doing on the treadmill got my ever active mind wandering.... [Read More]

    You never know how much “clutter” you’ve accumulated over the years until the day you are moving houses or for whatever reason you decide to re-organize your house or just one of the rooms, say your bedroom for example. In the bedroom, you have your wardrobe full of clothes, but if you are just starting out in life, maybe you don’t have a big house with a designated bedroom and a wardrobe just... [Read More]

    Earlier this week I had the rare opportunity of going through a few things basketball. Actually, I have to admit it all started when I went looking for some inspiring and motivating video clips on youtube. I had no specific category in mind but then somehow I landed on sportsmen. There were quite a number of them but the one that really inspired me was one about a 6-6 sized basketball legend who... [Read More]

    I think this image says it all and so I will not water down it's message by saying much. I'll only say this, if you spend time planning, then situations like this will be limited.

    I'm not sure but my guess is that when Martin Cooper, (a Motorola employee then) stood in midtown Manhattan in 1973 and placed a call to the headquarters of Bell Labs in New Jersey he probably didn't have a clue as to what he had just invented. I mean if the mobile phone was a human being, by now that baby (mobile phone) that was born on 3rd April, 1973 would be 41 years and 4 months old and as... [Read More]

    They say mentally disturbed people are found in mental hospitals but from what I’ve been seeing lately, it seems like most of them are on the roads openly displaying their level of madness. Yes, I am talking about the many insane drivers we encounter every day we are on these roads. Interestingly enough, it doesn’t matter whether you are in Dar Es Salaam, Arusha, Nairobi or Kampala. It seems like... [Read More]

    Who discovered that a cow can produce milk? I mean, what made him (I’m assuming it must have been a he) think that if he pulled on those four hanging pink things they would produce a liquid that can be drank? I don’t know and I have not researched on this but my guess is that this discovery was made by accident, just like most of the inventions we enjoy today were accidental discoveries. Did you...

    As we all know, this last week there were lots of power outages in Tanzania which I hear affected the entire country. Unfortunately those who did not have alternative power sources suffered the most in that not even their phones were charged. As a result, I got quite a few requests from strangers to charge their phones for them while they were waiting to get service at our shop. Not that we did... [Read More]
