I have to say that I am fortunate,
To be her today,
To have a laptop, electricity, and internet,
Knowing that there are millions of people who do not even know what a computer is leave alone owning one.
Am fortunate to be literate, to be able to express myself through writing and read what others say about themselves.

I am fortunate to have both my eyes working properly,
I know there are millions of blind people who keep enjoying life even when they cannot see.
Yet I sometimes take my eyesight for granted.
I am fortunate that I can hear,
Oh the sweet sounds of music which sometimes irritate me even when there are people who have never had the ability to hear anything.

I am fortunate that I can walk, jog and even run with both my legs,
There are people who cannot wake up from their beds or their seats.
I am fortunate that I can use both of my hands and yet sometimes I just want them to rest and I complain of how tired they are,
Yet there are people who wish they had them just to make tired for a day.

I am fortunate to be alive today,
knowing that thousands died today.
I am fortunate, Auspicious and favorable because I am a blessed girl and I appreciate it everyday.
This post is dedicated to all of you who are alive today because you are fortunate too and you should always cherish it, no matter what happens.
Love you all.

1. If a screenwriter turned you into a character in a movie,
a. What stock Hollywood character would it be most like? For example: best friend, ditzy blonde, absent-minded professor, captain of industry, etc.
I am more of  a bestfriend who sometimes hides the truth to protect the said friend.
b. What actor/actress would play you?
Recently, I have been watching brothers and sisters and i think, Kitty Waker would be a perfect role for me.

2. What genre of movie is your life most like? For example: romantic comedy, goofball comedy, spy, coming of age, action/adventure, sci-fi, etc
Ooooh, definitely, a Romantic Comedy because my life pretty much revolves around such stories and they are my favorite kind of movies.

3. What kind of scene in a movie would you like to play most? Why?
a. Argument
b. Love scene
c. Gun fight
d. High-speed car chase
Argument, where I get to throw expensive plates and cups on the wall. I always liked that but I have never done it.

4. Have you ever looked around you and thought “this is like a scene from a movie”? What were the circumstances?
Yes! During my housewarming party where everyone was having fun and getting drunk while I was bored and lonely.

5. Have you ever looked at a character in a movie and said, “Hey, that could be me”? Who/what was the character?
In he Back-Up Plan, the character that J-Lo plays. I could totally do that if am alone and old and wanting to have a baby.

Never.

Keep On Walking

Am walking,
Downhill, its really easy,
I walk smiling, laughing, giggling even,
There’s a sprint in my walk and i feel as if am flying,
People on this route are also smiling,
It seems that everyone is enjoying themselves.
Then I get to the bridge,
Some kind of fear grips me as I know the uphill walk will be difficult,
As I start the walk, I motivate myself,
A few smiles can be seen,
But it gets harder and harder,
Am thirsty, hungry even,
I contemplate going back and just enjoying the downhill walk,
But I can see the peak and my heart tells me that I must get up there.
So what do I do,
I keep on walking,
The muscle aches, the hunger and the thirst won’t stop me,
Finally, I reach the top and I breathe a sigh of relief.
Here, all the goodness I can imagine is handed to me,
I love the taste of vistory and that is why I will keep on walking,
No matter what.

I Choose to……

I have some really strong beliefs that guide me through everyday living. Though sometimes I go against what I believe in, I always try to find some inspiration and stay grounded. One of those beliefs is that in every situation, a person always has a Choice. It does not matter what kind of situation it is but we always have a choice to go one way or the other. I think I should just make this topic into another post but for now, this is what I had in mind.
I choose:

  • to Love rather than be right. Love should always come first.
  • to forgive rather than hold grudges.
  • to let go as opposed to creating unwanted resentment and carrying heavy burdens.
  • to laugh and smile all the time because there is always something to smile about.
  • to be grateful even for the smallest things because in the long run they are all that matters.
  • to Love without expectations
  • to play and take things easily with a light heart.
  • to choose where my life goes. 
  • to LIVE my life happily, it is the least I can do with this great gift that has been given to me.

Make a choice today because it is the only thing you can do to make your life better and more awesome.

Thankful Thursday- This Week

These days are flying but its all good and time for one of my favorite link-ups, Thankful Thursday at Southern Charm. Am a great fan of gratitude and this link-up gives me the opportunity to appreciate the things that am thankful for. So please join in.

First, am Thankful for am alive. This week in my country Kenya, there have been several disasters starting from fire to road accidents that have led to numerous deaths. However, I am still here and all my friends and family are. While other families are mourning, I have been given the opportunity to continue living. I am truly thankful for my life and the life of every person on this world.

Secondly, am thankful because i got the chance to donate blood and probably save the life of a person. Since the fire tragedy occurred on Monday, the Kenya Red Cross has organized blood donation drives and the turnout has been great. I know there are people who are willing to donate blood but they do not have enough, are pregnant or by any other means cannot donate blood. But I am grateful because I was healthy enough to donate blood and it surely felt good. You should try it sometime.

Am thankful for having the internet and this blog where I can talk and share my life with people. There are people who are so lonely and do not even have friends (both physical and virtual ones) to talk to. Am so thankful that I write things about my life and someone else can relate to it even when they are millions of miles away. Thank you to whoever discovered the internet, blogger and to my blog friends.

Lastly, am thankful for my mind and point of view that helps me retain sanity even when am so angry. I am an optimist and though some things happen and make me feel so low, I still have the strength to get up, suck it up and smile. I hope you can do the same and gratitude is definitely the way to start.

Love you all.

Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday– Deep, Deeper Emotions

Anger, Fighting and Ultimatums

Tuesday was a long day, infact the past two weeks have been long ones. If you have been reading my blog, then you know, me and MR b/f moved to a new town, new house and completely new environment. I took this as a positive thing and have been doing so all this time but lets say this is not exactly what he has seen is as.
The fight has been brewing all through last week and only blew up yesterday night. He has been all quiet on me, pretending to be happy, yet i know he is not. So everyday, I would try to talk to him and ask what is wrong but he would not speak to me. He was completely acting weird.
For us, talking has always been an easy thing. When we first started going out back in 2008, I was the one who was always afraid of opening up and sharing my feelings. But he taught me how to do that, he showed me how to let him in and thus we became very close. So for me, it is completely weird when he is the one who cannot share his thoughts and feelings.
The fight was all about sharing the deepest emotions and being able to reconnect at a deeper level. So we talked, argued and then talked some more. He said he needed time to figure out what he wants. The problem is we live together, so i decided to just stay out of his way, not speak about the issues we discussed and just give him space and time. I told him that I need to know how much time he needed and he said two weeks would be enough. I hope and pray that everything will be alright.
I understand that relationships are a lot of work and am willing to put in enough effort but i need to see him putting effort too.
Sorry for the whining and venting but i needed to and this blog provides the perfect opportunity to do so.
The following quote guides me through all this,

Thankful Thursday-Today's

Image Source,Photobucket Uploader Firefox Extension
Am generally a positive girl but i have not always been like this. In my early years, i was the kind of person that lived in fear, afraid of the future. So afraid of failing and also of the pain that i might face in future. But i soon met some people, read some literature and watched some movies and finally chnaged my life.
Am now the kind of person that is no longer afraid. Am excited about life and about the changes that are taking place in my life.
So today, am THANKFUL for Today’s. The many beautiful today’s that i have seen. The ones that have brought a smile to my face and me a better person. Am thankful for people who take their time to encourage me and others who need this encouragement.
Am Happy and Thankful for today was a beautiful day.
Link up at Southern Charm and share what you are thankful about.
