Hey wonderful people. I was thinking on what to post before the year ends and a tug at my heart urged me to write on uplifting words from the dictionary in an alphabetical pattern. They might not be all the words there are in the universe to address the need to be uplifted but they are worth it… I love poring through the dictionary in my downtime and it’s befitting that I share with you what I found, in form of a prayer specially for you my amazing readers. So here goes:


May this year be of Auspicious realities to you and all you meet. May an avalanche of ideas and provisions surround you as the year progresses.
May you be Bright-eyed in all you do in brio and vim.
May you Create a moment to savor your surroundings, the cadence of life and the joys it brings.
May the Decisions you make give you a sense of direction and desire to do more than expected.
May you Emulate those that are wiser and of age before their ideas and efforts evanesce into oblivion.
May your Foresight through faith in God be the frosting on the cake as the year unfolds so that in hindsight you will have learnt more as you forge ahead.
May you Gravitate towards your passion, gifts, and strengths acknowledging and seeking God in all you do.
May whatever negative situations and people Hurl at you brush off not hindering you from your goals.
May your Invaluable services, ideas, and actions draw businesses to you.
May you have the Joie-de-vivre and a jocund mood as you deal with life’s daily demands.
May the Kindness in your heart and the enterprise in your work leave no room for kvetching.
May all that you Long for bring you lucrative opportunities and ideas as you lift those beneath you. Don’t forget to listen in love.
May you learn from the Moguls in your field and beyond as you build your own business as a magnate yourself.
May Nonexistent fears of the unknown and not doing anything as a result never cross you your mind!
May you be Open-minded as you encounter the opinions of others and your own.
May you be Prudent in your daily activities leaving out the presumptuous notion that money comes to they that are corrupt.
May your Quintessential goal in your quest for success be that of enriching others and leaving the place you are better than you found it.
May you Render the rarities about your journey from the critics, null as you realize the wild reveries in your heart of hearts.
May Surreal occurrences surround you as you remain in awe of what sheer belief and trust can do to they that surrender their all to the one Supreme being, creator and ruler of the universe.
May your Tomorrow’s bring sunshine to your struggles of today.
May your Ultimate goal and dream be rid of ulterior motives but rather for the utmost good to all and sundry.
May Vain and vague people in your life be exposed as your value for veritable friendships grows.
May your Worth be in who you are as a person and your wellbeing be in your awareness of your spirituality.
May all you deemed as X’s in your life yield in being the X-factor that propels you to higher heights.
May all you Yearn for be a yearlong fulfilment as you traverse the course of 2015.
May your Zeal to your passion and love for the good of all you do and encounter drive you to your zenith.
{Finally, may your tenacity give you a sense of satisfaction, as Pollyanna of this wish for me this is I sincerely hope that all will be hunky-dory when we tell 2015 adieu…}

• Blooper: Ha, hope you like this cliché sounding prayer of mine. I tried to make it as genuine as possible and that right there is what I conjured.
• Note: In the Finally segment above, those words in bold didn’t cut in the list so I decided to squeeze them in coz I loved their life in words…
• Honestly: My wish for you all is a great new year full of great lessons to learn and to grow from. No one has it together but don’t forget that joining hands with others gives you an upper hand in all you do. When all is said and done may your will to conquer be more than your fear for the unknown. May the odds be in your favor.

Happy New Year 2015!

Country Love


Nzoia River

Dry lips from the endless wind blowing on her face, for a second you think she has had nothing to eat in a long while. Dirt fills her shoes as she walks past the majestic tower that is viewed by many as a shelter from the hot scorching sun. Today she had no worries of that ruthless sun glare… She just walked as if she was possessed with a good spirit full of joy despite her setting. Her skirt flowing freely and dancing to the medley of her meticulous sway and the constant whiffs of the wind causing a crescendo of unprepared melodies as she walks.
She walks past a group of boys and steadily does a flippant stare at the ground so none of them sees her face. A quick shiver runs through her spine when she hears her name from the boys, “Katrina!”  They hollered and catcalled as usual. She ignored them and continued to walk as gracefully as she could. Trying not to meet any of their gaze, she made it past the whippersnappers of her small hamlet. At the corner of her road she met up with Vance, her longtime admirer-who was too shy to tell her.
“Today I have to talk to Katy!” Voices in his head clouded his mind she almost passed him by. Gathering his courage, he stepped out to the dirt road leading to the river. The river where Katrina went there to cool herself off especially on a parching day like this one… Vance met up with her and gave his best shot at wooing Katy, who seemingly fixated on going to the fresh misty untainted atmosphere,  gave little thought in talking to him. Acquainted from the fact they lived in the same village they had little facts about each other so miss Katy sauntered on leaving the bruised Vance cursing at his lack of words to express his emotions to Katy. Oh well, there’s a next time. He thought. Meanwhile Katy was at her most serene place to be, enchanted by the aura of beauty in a chaotic neighborhood. For awhile she had a utopia-esque escape from reality. She knew she and the river, dirt road, hot sun and the sheer chance of living in this sweet old boonies she had grown to endear so much was her way to bond with mother nature. She felt royal whenever she hit the road to the river. She felt revived. Like she was in a fairytale or a dream. Who knows what magic lay beyond her dreams and fantasies.
As for dear Vance he knew she was special and wanted to show that to her, though he put his foot in his mouth every time he tried to.
At least he tried.
He continued his mission to love this sphinxlike lady… Admittedly he was flustered whenever he wanted to talk to her, it felt like he was in a space different from her but that didn’t deter his mission. In his mind she loved him and was scared to reciprocate it. You know how people are, rumors spread, and he wouldn’t love Katy’s name tainted. He consoled himself… His was a Knight in shining armor love to this country princess. He had a special connection to her unfathomable by mere denizens of their back country.

{{Hey guys! Hope you love this piece I just wrote. Initially intended to title this story “Of Frogs and Princesses” in allusion to the classic Princess and the Frog but changed it later because I felt that it didn’t quite fit well… Anyways hope you like it. If you do, inbox me on social media, comment below or whatever you wish to do, tell me if it’s what you guys like or give any suggestions (I love them, they keep me going☺)
So tell me what you think… And don’t forget to share if you like it.
Peace ⭐

I squeezed my last


If you have met me or stayed with me for awhile now you must know I have a problem with pimples. I love to squeeze them… But for a clearer skin sake I have stopped, hard as it is so far I am making progress. It’s taking so much self-will to make it happen but the fruits will show in a few months.
Ok, away from me and my tiny pathetic little problem, a few days ago a friend of mine and I had a candid chat. Sort of intimate chat if you may. It’s not a rare thing to do when am with her because we are that kind of girls who never tire of telling and retelling our dreams and thoughts. Her fears like mine are not to fail at doing what she loves most, not to hide her pain even if it is the most appropriate thing to do and to never miss her chance at fulfilling all she has ever dreamt of achieving by shining more light to as many people she meets.
Sure as a blink, she has had her share of ugly black paths to walk through and not so blissful encounters with people, who she thought were friends but turned out into lifelong foes. Foes that really to her were a hidden disguises of her mistakes… So tonight she squeezed her last ounce of hate to any of them. As we gazed at the stars and the moon in the seemingly cold grass she screamed(Gladly we had our coats on) “I hate you no more!” Naming all those that hurt her she yelled at the top of her lungs. The good thing about living in the boons you are at liberty to do all you want, the only thing you might attract are the roaming wild hyenas in the vast Maasai country. Oh, and the passersby or angry neighbors miles away trying to catch up with their favorite T.V shows.
This was just a silly exercise we decided to do to make our night spontaneous…
Many people have struggles with people, your best way may not appeal to others but if that exercise makes you free from that snag then by all means do it!
Share it below too; I’d love to do another exercise with my friend some other time. We will appreciate it ☺
Peace friends 👋
