Hey, so lately, there is this wave of change that has sort of maxed, jazzed and most definitely thrown a curveball at me lately and words can’t seem to be enough.
Today, I write this blog not because I feel the most happiest, saddest or confused as yet but because despite it all, I am taking each situation coming my way with grace, hope, peace and joy knowing that God’s got me. Hence the courage to say, Bring it on!
You may notice I have changed the theme of the blog as well. So much change is happening to me and I’d really love to document it all as much as I can and any moment
These two quotes have spoken volumes to me. This one;
I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. –Jimmy Dean
And this one by a very influential writer to my growing up days after high school;
Every human has four endowments – self-awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change. –Stephen Covey
Enjoy my happy pictures taken by my friend Denis and le bro Japh as well some selfies from my Snapchat account tuyidee and other friends of mine…
There you have it, thank you for reading to the end. It’s people like you who make me want to do it more. Make sure to follow the page, comment below on how you intend to embrace change if you are going through one.
Ever start the week with high hopes only to have them thwarted because life has a funny way of being itself?
So this #ThankfulThursday I just wanted to put my best foot forward by beating disappointment to its rightful place, the moving on corner!
Yeah I said it. The moving on corner is where disappointment belongs and I’ll add ‘swiftly’ because the moment you linger on longer the more it’ll try to creep in because again, life.
So yeah, move on swiftly, with the right attitude and heart contentment. If you’re strong you can do that on your own like the super human you are. But if you are like the rest of us, have those friends who hold you high in the midst of trying times.
It’s okay to evaluate yourself but don’t beat yourself up. Ask questions like; ‘was I living to my passion’, ‘was I manisfesting/walking within my passion’ or ‘did I disregard my passion in pursuit of a temporary fill?’
Such and other questions ought to help you heal from the let down but also stir you up towards your true passion whereby you are your true self.
The beauty of life is that, even though it can suck the living daylights out of you… it equally brings a new day with it, to start fresh and to be whole again. Try again even if it fails—your passion, knit together and firmly with your faith, is always going to get you to your ultimate destination in this journey called life.
Here are some of the images that my brother Japh took during the disappointment, and after as I radiated peace and joy.
I am curious, how do you beat a disappointing time/phase/period?
First of all, #happynewmonth to each of you my readers. May your #March bring you joy untold and lots of beautiful experiences that build longlasting memories.
That said, over the month of February I went back home after a rather long time. Almost after like 11 months. The point however is that I got to be with the closest people to me. People who make me whole. People who make me feel alive. People who accept my silly self and allow me to live my truth. I could go on, you know, I love being at home because I feel alive.
I get to be with them, enjoy endless cheer, quality time and great food by mama.
I had a great time for sure. I got to soak on all that and take lots and lots of photos.
We decided to go ham on them eggs because breakfast
With a full stomach comes my other love for posing and what better way that to have my brother The Japh (favorite photographer thus far — he gets me) take pictures of me.
You’d say it’s because my papa loved taking photos of us when growing up that we turned into these photogenic individuals but the element of being free infront of the camera has become one of my favorite things to do and I’m so glad I get to share this with people I love.
But most of all I got to be part of mama’s golden birthday. She joined the big five-oh gang y’all! And happy, blessed, proud and prayerful for her life am I as I reminisce the way God has been so good to us through her.
Someone we miss definitely has to be my equally favorite brother DiTiEm.
So, I’m curious, do you guys love being at home after a longtime? What are your favorite things to do together?
PS: I didn’t post last week as I was recouperating and to that I say, sorry.
Over the past month I spent my days at home. April for those who don’t know yet, happens to be my birth month, hello fellow Aries birthmates 👋
While there my little brother turned my official photographer took the pain of taking my oh-so many poses.
I am a hill billy, country raised girl and so taking pictures where my heart beats for and with the people it beats for the most was well worth it.
Besides, what’s a girl to do than #CarpeDiem all the single moments God, favor, time and good fortune had bestowed me 😊
So here are some of the many pictures I thought to share as I seriously take this blogging gift I have to a more consistent level. (Not an easy feat but hey, I’ll try it just because I have readers like you 😍)
So there you have it friends, that was my at home style during my birthday month as I experienced the vibrations of where I am from 💕
You can be stylish and not rob a bank while you are at it.
Well at least that’s what I am trying to showcase with
various outfit posts I will be posting in the coming days.
This series is something I am lately inclined to. It’s going to focus on thrifty ways to dress up and not feel like the clothes are poking holes at your whole being for being a spendthrift.
So without further ado, let’s go posing.
So there you have it folks. You don’t need a lot to make your style impeccable.
All you need is bargaining power and a keen eye for what your body looks like in them.
All the photos were taken using the camera Phone by my colleague Andrew Kazibwe who gets my ideas and captures them occasionally seasoning them with his brilliant ideas.
