    This last week I know some students were very overjoyed because they were going to have an extended weekend (at least for those who haven’t closed school yet). They are probably going to go back to school on Monday after closing school for a week. Now if their school is like mine was, then they must have gone home with “holiday homework” from their teachers to keep them busy during the short... [Read More]

    Everyone of us has a dream or a goal. But do you ever wonder why not everyone of us achieves that goal? The key to achieving any dream you have in life is to go out and work your dream. No dream will ever come to pass unless you work towards making sure it does. Want to see your dream coming true? Make a plan and work that plan every day until you realize your dream.

    Remember the story I shared with you last week about a boy called Monty Roberts and what he went through when he was a kid at the hands of his teacher? If you didn’t get a chance to read it, then you’d better look for last week’s Guardian on Sunday, or you can check out the story here.  The reason I’m telling you to look it up is because today’s post has a co-relation to that one and so if you...

    Be grateful for all the obstacles in your life. They have and will continue to strengthen you as you continue with your journey.
  • Sun, 8th May 2016
    There is no reward for finishing life first. However, there are many rewards for living life well. Something wonderful happens every day if you pay attention. But if you are zipping along life at breakneck speeds, how will you notice it? Life is a journey. Like every journey, you are bound to experience various obstacles along your path. Will you give up on reaching your destination because of... [Read More]

    It is 4:30 in the morning. Not so many cars are on the road yet but still quite a number of them considering it is still very early. I’m almost late for my flight but thankfully, I get to the airport just as the first boarding call is being announced. The girls at the counter are very helpful and they quickly process my ticket and I get my boarding pass. As I look around, I realize the airport is... [Read More]

    If you are in the region, then you must be experiencing the one season most people dread; the rainy season. It has been raining elephants and lions lately and the roads have taken a major beating owing to the frequency of the rains. But the worst hit areas are not even the main roads but the in-roads that lead to most residential areas, except of course if you leave in Masaki, Oysterbay and the... [Read More]

    It's been a while since I posted under this category. My bad for that. I promise you that from now on, I will be more regular in sharing the word of God as He lays it in my heart than ever before. I've been going through a certain season of transition in my life and as I have been spending time in God's presence one thing that has come out clearly is that no matter what I am going through, no...

    It’s unbelievable to think that we are in March already. Isn’t it just the other day we were sending messages of goodwill over Christmas and New Year? What happened to the days in between? It feels like the earth is rotating faster nowadays than it used to before. It is unbelievable that we are in the last month of the first quarter of this year that was new just the other day. Of course at this... [Read More]

    As we come to the end of February, I was just looking back at the month that was and I realized that even though it is a 29 day month, this month has literally flown. Lots of the stuff that I expected to accomplish in this month did not happen not because I didn’t initiate the process, but because there were third party inputs that needed to be made for me to accomplish them but unfortunately the...

    Why Focus? Because like Henry Ford said, "Obstacles are the frightful things you see when you shift your eyes from your goal..." Stay Focused.

    The internet is full of funny stuff, things that can cause one to laugh till your ribs hurt like someone gave you a kick. With the emergence of social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc., sharing of such stuff has become very easy especially now that almost every other person has a smartphone and internet bundles to compliment the phone. Besides, almost every office and up-... [Read More]

    February is normally a very special month to me, and before you start thinking its because of Valentine’s day, please be informed that this is not one of the reasons why the month is special. February is special to me because besides being the only month with inconsistent days, it also happens to be the month that I was born in. It also is the month my first born son, my only sister and my Mom... [Read More]

    When you see people walking on the streets, it is very easy to judge them based on how they look. It is very easy to rule them out based on how bad they are dressed, or to quickly accept them based on their ability to pack sentences. In short, it is very easy to quickly judge a person by their outward appearance as opposed spending time with them to try and really know who the person behind the... [Read More]

    The last few months have been a bit hectic for me. I took on an assignment that has literally topsy-turvied my life in the sense that I have been finding myself extremely busy lately. Sometimes too busy to even get time to have my nails done! I’m not complaining, just surprised that it is possible for someone to be that busy. I am trying to look for a workable work-around that allows me to... [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]

    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]

    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]

    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.
