An open letter to my future Husband

Now that I think about it, there are a million ways on how I can start this letter but first I will say am sorry and thank you. I know it sounds crazy but allow me to break it down.

Allow me to break it down!

Am sorry that you had a difficult past, I know that you have had and are working hard, to prove yourself and do better. I know that there are things that you possibly working through, addictions you are facing and trying to break, battles that you are preparing for and I know that with all this you are trying to still live up to the man that you want to be defined as. My love, it is still for these difficult situations that am thankful for. The resilience you building is not in vain. For when we face difficult phases in our life together we shall rise above it, we will be each other’s pillar of strength and we will always emerge stronger and thankful for the situation with a praise on God’s faithfulness in our lives.

 

Am sorry that your ‘exes’ will break your heart. Am sorry they will push you to a darkness that you never thought possible. Am sorry they will never treat you with the worth that you deserve, the value that you have set, the love that you crave for, the care that you show them and the respect that even our God commands. Though sorry am really thankful that by not doing all that, they will push you to me and they will give me the chance to do all that and more for you. They will push you to our life together, to our future, to our destiny.

With This Dress I could Wed!

A WOMAN’S DRESS

should be like a barbed -wire fence: serving it’s purpose without obstructing the view.

Life is a party, Dress Like it!

 If I could wed, I would like to think that this is what could be going through my mind, besides I have heard often enough that choosing a dress is like choosing a partner.

Yes to the dress.

I think of the day I first met you and I would never have known how much my life would change years later. Then I think of the first day I lay my eyes on you and saw that sparkle that would light fireworks and light us on to a deeper more intimate level and am overwhelmed. YES we made it.

OFF BEAT

 I Love my age. Old enough to know better. Young enough not to care. Experienced enough

to do it right.

– Anonymous

A little effort, a little more Witt just to be a little braver for a little bit longer

A peddle stone, rolling deep, the quick sand, even the stars seem to be aligning.

Did my song change or was I slow to change my moves?

I think off beat is more like it.

Is anyone out there? Does anyone care? Is anyone even listening?

The 20’s? Crazy how you believe you will never get old, maybe just experienced.

 

Early 20’s

Acquire a B.A, Make all the bad decisions. Date the ‘hot’ boy/girl.

Something about Y.O.L.O…. defining what fun is? And you choosing your best poison.

Keep the friends who turn it up because then, only up is the ultimate ambition.

Early 20’s, you dance to the beat rarely will you be off beat.

Happ Womens Day

Women Colour the World with so much Sunshine. You want constructive criticism, turn to a woman, you want support, turn to a woman, you want encouragement, turn to woman, you want love, turn to a woman, you need a prayer, turn to a woman,you want a friend, turn to a woman.We were created for so  much and we take on the responsibilities with so much grace even when we feel like almost quitting.

To all Women in the world;

Happy Happy International Women’s Day.

Shiko's XtraMile

Jennifer Hudson sung think like a man act like a lady, Steve Harvey wrote the book and it has had a run of two splendid movies. So much controversy on what a woman should be with hush tags such as #mwanamke ni trending in our social space. Being a woman is a full-time job, yes I said it. So much expectation from the society yet at the same time it is still underlined by some traditional aspect of what is expected from a woman. A woman needs to deal with the world’s concern, face her own personal insecurities and still rise to the occasion of what is expected from her. We juggle as we baffle at the amazing things we can take at a given moment. We truly are super woman.

Award-winning Book (My 1st Read for the Year)

We read to know we are not alone.

-C.S Lewis

read-and-the-more-places-you-will-go

 

If we could plan for the next minute, next hour, next day, next month or the next year we could come up with picture perfect ideas and resolutions. However despite the next unknown being void of mistakes and perfectly unstained there’s just so much that we never plan for but we get to deal with along the way. That said, earlier in the year I made a Time resolution that I have been very intentional in keeping. If you missed that you can check it out My One Resolution!

 

Some aspects of my life are yet to feel my time resolution but other aspects have had the pleasure to see me try. Awhile back and by that I mean 2 years back I was better on my reading game. Unfortunately life got busy and this became a very luxurious thing to do. I know, don’t judge. Carried away by this resolution I decided to ship in a number of books for the year and they recently got here and got a home at my place. Super excited about this by the way.

Just Breathe

This town is beautiful. This town is where my dreams will come to life. Seated at the left side back sit and a quick thought of madam secretary feel dashes in and out of my mind so quick even a snap shot couldn’t even catch it. This town is most beautiful at night, the sky is dark; a hay of some dark navy blue clouds paint the sky, no stars but the moon is having a collaboration with the street lights. Cruising on the clear bypass and directly through the highway…. can it get any beautiful?

 

tough

 

 

I close my eyes and savor the night; the cold breeze blows through my quarter downed window. My cheeks get cold and I run my fingers on my face to warm the chill.  As soon as my face can balance the temperatures I remember tomorrow is Monday and just like that a daze fills my face but still; my eyes glued out of the window. I tell myself I have faced more Mondays than weekends, but this Monday at the back of my mind will always be different. It will take something out of me but it will also plant another chapter in my town. Ten….nine….eight… I count myself down all the way to one and I BREATH. In and out and just like that am back to this beautiful town.

The letter I wish I got.

The last couple of years have been bitter sweet. It has been characterized by a lot of unexpected, untimed situations that needed to be embraced as the waves tumbled my emotions around. It’s been intense, I wish I would have received a manual to get me through life or at least a letter from my younger self even if it just meant a heads up.

 

slide1 

 

To the girl who looks at life with so much colour,

I wish you knew that one day you will understand that life is complicated. That some people you expected to love you will not always come through. They will find you weak, imperfect and very stubborn. You will try live your life for them, you will drop things and put your life on hold all in the name of love and service but someone else will always be a better version of you. You will never measure up to the standards put forth.

My One Resolution!

Too many people miss the silver lining because they are expecting gold.

– Maurice Setter

 clarity-and-conviction

You can try think that some things may be as easy as 123, ABC or such as a tune of your favorite song. Sometimes we have to stand outside in order to look in. To see with much clarity, some times you have to separate yourself from your being. Sometimes you have to be a stranger to know better, to understand better and most of all to progress better.

 

Sometimes speed means delay. Sometimes happiness means knowing when to let go no matter how much it may hurt. Sometimes peace means change. Sometimes strength is not being afraid to walk alone. Sometimes in order to move on you need to deal with your insecurities. Sometimes in letting go we gain what was really meant for us. If you are full you can’t try a different cuisine or can you?

It’s enough, take a break!

Thank heavens it’s 5:00pm. I should be shutting down and shutting down I will do. What a long day. I need to get to my space really soon. I have been so mean to my place, late and my kitchen craves for my special delicacies projects.  Thinking about it, my house and I could definitely use a pick me up. Some good music, some chicken recipe, maybe a movie later and I can even try out the lavender candles I was recently gifted. Oh my, it’s a date.

 my-little-world

It’s just a little over 6 and I am just getting to my place. I put my handbag by the sofa at the door and find my way to the kitchen. If I could just pour myself a glass of something and put my legs up, it would mean everything. A sip of my drink and I close my eyes and reflect on the day that was. The CBD is getting crazier and crazier to maneuver and here I thought that with the festive season it meant more people in their rural homes, clearly I was mistaken.

 

I need to whip up something at some point. But first things first, I put my music on and my house is alive. On my playlist it’s a favorite, Write on me by Fifth Harmony (If you don’t know it please have a listen) and your welcome by the way. Soon my hips pick up on the rhythm and can’t help but move as I dance across the room and I swirl around as arms are raised to the roof in a wave. I think to myself, this is how a day should end….. Happy, free and taken away. I can get used to this.
