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.

The Frog-athon

I really don't like creepies of any kind, but this story here made me change my mind about frogs for a few minutes.... Read the story here.

 

A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants….

The race began…

Honestly..

No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower..

You heard statements such as..

“Oh, WAY too difficult!!”

If you do follow me on social media, then you must have noticed that I continued with the subject of procrastination, a subject that I started last week. Based on feedback I received from that article, I decided to delve deeper into the various reasons why people tend to procrastinate.

How To Stop Procrastination

This week I’d like us to address the issue of PROCRASTINATION.

We are in the 11th month of the year and someone is probably asking themselves where the other 10 months went because they are yet to achieve anything from the 2017 To-Do List they had created on 31st December 2016. 

Well, here’s a likely answer; The good looking, tall, dark chocolate, lean and handsome dude called PROCRASTINATION subtly stole your time while he was busy convincing you to ignore the unpleasant but very important tasks in favor of those easier and enjoyable tasks.

Who Moved My Cheese?

Book Cover: 

Who Moved My Cheese? is a simple parable that reveals profound truths.

It is the amusing and enlightening story of four characters who live in a maze and look for cheese to nourish them and make them happy.

Cheese is a metaphor for what you want to have in life, for example a good job, a loving relationship, money or possessions, health or spiritual peace of mind.

The maze is where you look for what you want, perhaps the organisation you work in, or the family or community you live in. The problem is that the cheese keeps moving.
