RE-INVENTING THE WHEEL?


If you've been bruised, broke a nail, fell into a drain,into tall itchy grass,got a driver angry they had to get out of  their car and shout at you, then you understand the struggle in learning how to ride a bike and will appreciate this post. 
Over the weekend, I had a talk with a good friend of mine, I'll be her bridesmaid type of friend. We discussed about life after uni,moving home and adulting stuff. Funny thing is we had some similar views such that we agreed random people's attitudes towards the idea of moving home from where ever country you've been can influence your subconscious mind negatively. 
It's one thing to be advised then it's a different ball game when you make decisions based on what was said,most times by people who haven't done what you're about to do. Everyone needs navigation but sometimes figuring life out is a personal thing, just like riding a bicycle. You can only be pushed but individually, you balance and paddle at your own pace. Drops mic 
Till next time, be mindful of who and what influences you and...

PEEKTURE PERFECT


Sometimes I look like my mum,most times I look like my dad.Chubby cheeks,a big nose and lips.I have his discolored toes and flat fingers. I don't remember if it's my siblings or a friend who once told me my fingers look like a hammer fell on them haha. It's funny now but it used to bother me. I didn't wear lipstick or smile because I thought I have big lips already. Boy did I almost miss out! Sometimes I look in the mirror and see my siblings or my aunt. It's crazy to know you can be a shadow of something bigger or something already known,you can conform and be the look-alike,the think-alike,the do-alike,the copy cat. Maybe copy cat is too far fetched but you catch my drift right? Its amazing what happens when you find yourself and be 'the rebel'. I found my smile,found my style and still am on the journey. My birthday was on the 2nd and my little sisters asked if I was going to blog about 'things I've learnt so far'. I told them no but I guess this is what I've learnt in summation. Faith and Raviro, this is for you.On my next birthday remember to sing 'how young are you' old does not exist in my vocabulary xx
                                                                   Till next time..

Taking Stock Twenty-One


Making :Serious packing decisions. It's one thing to love a piece of furniture or clothes,it's another thing to sacrifice space for it.It's not that deep but it's imperative decision making 

Drinking :I wonder why I haven't removed or replaced this 'segment'. I feel you already know 

Reading :The power of positive thinking  

Wanting :A vacation.With beachy vibes and pastel outfits

Grateful for:Another birthday celebration.It has been God all the way. I'm growing daily into someone I'm proud to point at from a corner in a room full of people  if I wasn't me .A bit twisted but I'm sure you get it


Smelling:Green tea air freshener  

Excited: That Game of Thrones and Being Mary-Jane are back.I can now be a couch potato and feel no shame

Knowing:Group chats are not that serious haha 

Bookmarking:August the 2nd It's my birthday!

Watching: A lot of movies and reality TV. Sometimes I have to hold back because the drama is a lot!

Giggling: Because of how I take scenarios personal.I was asked hypothetically about situationships and I went all in with my opinions.I laughed it off later but boy was I in my feelings lol. I don't think I can make a good lawyer 

Feeling:Excited but uncertain about what the future holds. However,I'm open to whatever's about to be served 

Cooking:Anything that comes to mind as long as the ingredients are accessible. I'm inspired by a girl,cookingbycaz  she cooks unconventional meals  

Playing:Nhema by Exq, I loove the song 

Enjoying:Late nights and late mornings.Had almost missed chilled days where tea is a first thing on my mind when I wake up  

Liking:I can be advised but do the complete opposite!It all comes down to what I believe is right for me right?

Till next time...
