Reflections

Day eighteen of social distancing and i could damn well be losing my mind. Who knew that staying in the house could be so excruciating? I can only imagine how difficult it must be for people living alone, or far from their loved ones. It is not an easy thing to do. But i like…

What About The Maldives?

If I was to describe the Maldivian Islands in one word, I would say “relaxing”. I know. So cliche, right? But for those of us in our late twenties, going through a million phases and working so tirelessly to keep our heads up, a break from the usual in such a splendid country is more…

A Little Bit Of Heart

Well, hello there. It has been yet another hiatus for me, and at this rate, I am beginning to believe that these phases are a part of life. I took some time off to focus on my studies again. Have you ever been so affected by a situation that pretty much has nothing to do…

Great, but not okay.

In the spirit of mental health awareness, I think it is safe to say that depression and other mental disorders have become a global catastrophe that demands everyone’s attention. Last week, I read, in great shock, articles online about a number of people that had committed suicide in a span of two days. Four of…

The Value Of Friendship

One of the best kept secrets in life, is the value of friendship. We’ve heard about this, but, do we really understand it? On many occasions, we’ve been told that, “You are the average sum of the five people closest to you”. I came to realise, a while back, that the people you have in…

It’s Pageant Season!

If anyone was to ask me now what i think about pageants, in one sentence I would say, “Pageants build character“. Most people would most likely beg to differ, but i have my reasons and insights.Having actively participated in pageants for the past five years, I could say a lot about it. I’ve had the…

Twelve Days Of Christmas.

Christmas time is one of the holidays that we mostly look forward to every year. And Christmas in 2017 has come quite sooner than expected, at least for me. It is a time to celebrate, to spend time with family, to meditate on the year that’s passed, and make resolutions for a better year ahead….

The Unspoken Truth: Mental Health

Mental health. Ever said it out loud? What is it? By definition, mental health is “a level of psychological well-being, or an absence of mental illness. It is the “psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment”.” I bet you already know this. One of the most unspoken truths has to…

Where Love Fails, Respect Prevails.

With just a few hours to the start of a brand new month, one with new chapters for most and a potential fresh start for some, I touch on the most important topic of all; RESPECT. Respect : “a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements” I…

The Company You Keep.

“Being a loner may seem like a tough choice to make, it may even sound a little crazy. But, it is better to walk alone, than to stand in the company of mediocrity.”

First Time Is A Charm!

  I have been benching this article for a while now, mostly because I am not the biggest fan of “full disclosure”, but oh well. In my twenty four years of living, my best kept secret has been quite simple: I had never been to Mombasa, Kenya, up until the 17th Day of April 2017….

Another Win For The Ego.

Have you ever had one of those personal sessions where you analyse past desicions and actions, and wonder exactly why you chose to go through with them? Like why you are no longer friends with someone? Or why you love to talk ill of your exes, despite having had some pretty bright days together? Or…

The Art Of Contentment.

A few days ago, I wrote an article touching on depression, anxiety and other forms of mental unrest, wherein I shared my thoughts on what really triggers us to emotional and mental instability. The most obvious one being COMPARISON. In a world where social media dominates every single sector, it would be a lie for…

Women: The Pillars of Society!

One of the greatest joys in life is to feel powerful; needed, and appreciated. Perhaps not to some, but definitely to most. Every so often I write and talk about how women impact society and carry with them the future of the human race. This is without a doubt one of the greatest gifts granted…

Reminiscing On Austria

When September checks in, then so does pageant season. I know it has been long overdue, but I wanted to make this post today, on Thanksgiving Day. And, while it is not a traditional holiday here in Kenya, I feel that it should be recognized. PS: I love holidays way too much. I’ve been going…
