Me, Myself and I

Hello my lovely peeps!! Hope your week is going well and you are being the best you can.
I hope your lives are flowing, smoothly, with no hitches.
Anyway, the blogosphere is a huge place and we sometimes get caught up in the process of blogging that we forget to make the most basic of human needs: connection.
We all want to connect with others and this is why blogging seems so appealing.
This is also the reason why I love the Me, Myself & I link-up. It helps us get to know the human side of bloggers.
So lovely people, this is an opportunity for you to get to know me a little bit better..

1. When you are feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?
 When am feeling down, I usually shut down and keep to myself. So, to pick myself up I might cook, clean, go for a walk, run, write, cry a little, tell myself that I will be ok, call my bff, eat a lot of food…dance a little, some yoga also helps
2.If you had to live in a different time period, which would you prefer?
I would love to live in the 1920’s. The Gatsby era, so pompous and life seemed so full. I’d have loved to see the prosperity in the world at that time.

3. What is the most creative Halloween costume you’ve ever worn?
There is nothing like Halloween in Kenya so I cannot answer this. However, I will let you in on a secret, in High school I was always part of the music festivals and we used to wear sisal skirts to enhance the dance movements. #loved it.
4. Five weird things we wouldn’t know without being told?
a)Am always first on the dance floor and I haven’t been on it for at-least five months now.#sad
b)I hate cats. More like, I fear cats. Well, I like their photos but in real life…..don’t come near me.
c)Am a mum’s girl.
d)I think I need fashion help. Jeans and t-shirts are getting boring.
e)I love new things but I loooove my old, familiar things. For example, I can’t seem to let go of my phone which does not even have a camera.
5. What would you tell your 16-year-old self?
To take it easy. To focus more on studies and take time to just be young and enjoy high school.

If You Really Knew Me

First, thank you to all the ladies who have written such posts. The idea is awesome and makes it easier for us to get to know each other on a more personal level.

Here we go….
If you really knew me:
…you would know that I was a very quiet and shy girl while growing up. However, that has changed dramatically over the past few years. I can now easily speak up and mingle with people from anywhere.

…you would know that I am sometimes afraid of letting people into my real life issues. I fear that I may be overburdening them.

…you would know that I love family so much. All kinds of families, to be clear, and I want to start mine asap.

..you would know that I love kids a lot and they seem to love me as well. It is very difficult to find a child that hates me!!!{mainly because I love running around and making fun} 

…you would know that am very easy going. I am the first on the dance floor and my friends usually count on me to shake up a party.
…you would know that I try to be charming though I think I fail in most attempts. My love {L} is very charming and I try to copy his skills but I can’t.
…you would know that I can never let go of things and people am attached to. I have a phone I bought four years ago and I cannot seem to let it go. I just want to hold onto what I know, what feels comfortable, you know???I hope you do know, because if you don’t, then I don’t know where this world is headed. {I digress}
…you would know that I fall in love very easily. I trust easily too and I always think that everyone is good until proven otherwise .
…you would know that I am 100% optimist. I feel bad when people are negative, I wanna beat sense into them but that wouldn’t be too good, would it?.
…you would know that I never, ever give up. Ever! I always know that things will fall into place perfectly and they always have. {Even when it doesn’t look too good}

I want to Remember

I want to remember each day as it comes,
That I am here for a reason
That my life is a precious gift,
That I should cherish it

I want to remember, the little moments that take my breath away,
Little moments that I recount at the end of each day,
Moments that make me smile,
Moments that I hold close to my heart

I want to remember that am here to enjoy my life,
To remember that life is too short,
To know there is no time for holding grudges,
Only time for finding things that make me happy

I want to remember that today is the only time I have,
That yesterday is gone, whatever happened is now in the past,
Tomorrow is only but a dream, a promise that I cannot be sure of,
This hour, this minute, this second, is what I have!

I want to remember this when am angry,
When am feeling down, when it is dark,
When I think that am at the end of the road,
I want to remember!

I want to remember so I can take it easy,
So, I can choose to smile,
To love and to laugh with an open heart
And to cherish this remembrance.

I hope you remember too!
