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.

Test Before Trust

I once had a boss who used to tell me this, "Liz, it is good to trust but it is best to doubt". I never quite understood him them and I actually thought he was being mean, but many years down the line I now fully understand what he meant by that. I have to admit that this has not been one of my strengths, but as I keep learning from my mistakes, I now understand why it is important to test before trusting.

I think it’s time we acknowledged the fact that fatigue is an epidemic in our societies today, regardless of where in the world one is in. People seem to be having too much to do and very little time to do it. As a result, we have more people suffering from never ending tiredness than ever before. You must have heard (if not experienced it yourself) one or two people you know saying that they went to bed but woke up more tired than they were when they went to sleep.

If It's Going to Be, It's Up to You!

For the better part of last week, for some strange reason I found myself talking to people about taking responsibility for their health and not waiting for things to get to the point of no-return, then they start running all over the place seeking help. Actually I now remember a lot of these conversations were started by me asking the people I was talking to when they last went for a full body checkup.
