TAKING STOCK AUGUST 2018

If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more.”

Hello and happy Tuesday Friends, I hope you enjoyed your Holiday( for those in Kenya). It’s been a while since I  published an article here and I am grateful that I am able to do so today. As you may have noticed, my taking stock post is coming up  late. This has been quite a tough month for me but Better late than never.

I have been unwell for the most part( about two weeks or so).  I  lacked the energy to do stuff that i like to do, except the basics like work , eat and find something to eat. But I haven’t had an entire dull month.  I traveled upcountry to visit my folks. I always look forward  to travel back home when I am on leave.  I had an amazing time with my parents, siblings and a few friends I met up with.  I have since regained my health and I am grateful for the gift of health,life,family and friends.

One lesson I learnt this month is,it is important to have friends and  know who will be there for you when things go south . So take care of the people you love and people who have always been there for you.

Reading; Rich dad,poor dad by Robert Kiyosaki. I am loving the insights I am gaining from this book. It’s teaching me about money and the things you never learn about money in a classroom. I am also reading, The Moon also sets by Osi Ogbu. It is my kid sisters favourite now, and I want to understand why she loves this book. Also, I am reading The Subtle Ar of not giving a F***ck by Mark Manson. I never finished reading The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy.  I am multitasking and I know this means I am going to take time to finish all these books. And that’s fine. Speaking of reading, I would love to join a book club.

Drinking: Delmonte Apple juice right now and water most of the time because I need to stay hydrated.

Enjoying: The every moment of my life. I do it intentionally.

Waiting; Patiently for God to bless us with something I do not want to write about yet.

Loving: The fact that I am figuring what I want and working towards achieving it. Taking little steps while enjoying the journey.

Wearing: Gray pants, sky blue sleeves top, and a black sweater and red lipstick.

Cooking: My main dishes include rice and green grams or ugali eggs and kale.  Thinking about what I have to prepare for dinner exhausts me! And i have nothing to write home about my culinary skills. Hehe. But I do know how to prepare delicious meals.  Only when i feel like it.

Hoping: That this year will end with me accomplishing at least 40% of what I wanted to accomplish by end of year.

Playing: a little last weekend. Except that I spend my weekend indoors dancing ,listening to music and binge watching. If you told me seven years ago that one can be alone and still have fun and be happy, i would laugh at you!!

Listening: to nothing right now because I am easily distracted.

Watching; In contempt series.  Sometimes, When I am day dreaming,  I envision myself as a lawyer.  I think I love the prestige that coemes with being called a lawyer but I don’t think that I am willing to go through the trouble and hard work of becoming one. However, I do love what i do right now.  This series chas kept me glued on my bed… because I love to watch while lying in bed.

Needing: A vacation ,but I have not taken time to plan and execute. I would love to go for a group vacations, anyone whose done that? I need tips.

Wanting: To make a few changes here and there. I will let you know once I am done.

Marvelling: at my old photos. Photos I took ages ago. I am grateful for this far that i have come.
