Era Of The Crazies

There exists a very thin line between passion and obsession. Recently, I stumbled upon a television series by Tyler Perry, If Loving You Is Wrong; and while there are many other things to point out from this particular show, some that make me extremely uncomfortable with the whole show, there is one particular character that…

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…

I Choose Happiness :)

  When we were younger, we were carefree; with absolutely no responsibilities besides performing well in school. A tiresome day was as a result of playing outside all day; or from being in school learning and playing. Basically, living. Enjoying ourselves. But we grow up; excited that we are finally eighteen and young adults; imagining that…

Strive To Be Compassionate.

I was at work yesterday and I decided to have one of those YouTube playlists playing in the background as I went about my business. Now, I am a true 90’s music fan so naturally that’s what I set it to. Somewhere in between I heard a very familiar song, “What Would You Do‘ by…

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…

Stay Woke!

2017 started on a high note; with so much activity that it has been nearly two months since and I have not made any posts here. However, I hope you’re having a fruitful time. As we all know, this is the year when we go to the polls as Kenyans, a situation that inevitably brings…

Are We There Yet? #WorldAidsDay

When Shuga first aired in 2009, I found it to be very intriguing. The movie concentrated on a group of youths who lived a sort of fast life, had fun and enjoyed the party life. I was barely eighteen at the time, and I genuinely could not relate to anything that was going on in…

When Tables Turn.

I talk about women and the youth a lot on my articles because I am a firm believer that these are the people who hold society together and are the keys to the successful future of our society. The presence of a huge void in mentor-ship and guidance is undoubtedly the reason why our generation…

The Bumpy Road To Success.

Growing up is probably one of the hardest things I had to do. And I’m not talking about age; I’m talking about the mastery of emotional maturity , financial maturity and learning to balance all aspects of life; conquering all the tides with grace. That’s growth. We all have dreams and visions of what we…

Quarter-Life Crisis.

I was going through my Facebook profile today and came across a post I made three years ago: “The good thing about hardship is this: Sometimes what makes people a success is not a clear vision of where they want to be. Sometimes it is the hard times, the heartbreak, the low moments aka rock…

Body Shaming Is A Shame!

Today, I woke up to an article by startupskenya.co.ke appreciating my work on my blog and I just want to say thank you for reading, and for the undying support. I was scrolling down my news feed on Facebook and I came across a picture of an old friend from high school by a page…

Girls, Not All Lumps Are Cancerous!

  It’s October, or Pink October as we love to call it. It is also the breast cancer awareness month, and I feel that it would not be right that the month goes by without a word from me. So, hey! Well, since there is no easier way to talk about this, I find it…

Thoughts Build Character

Every so often we are told to be careful what we choose to focus on. For what we set our minds on, occupy it and create our future. That what we think, we become. Thoughts are a powerful part of everyday life; there isn’t a time in our lives when we are not thinking. But…

The Power Of The Tongue: Part I

The tongue is a powerful tool. A boneless part of the body, but one with great power: power to kill, power to destroy, power to break; power! We are often told to be mindful of what we say; to choose our words wisely, and to hold our tongues if we have nothing good to say….

So Different, Yet So Similar!

You know, sometimes I sit and think about all the people who “have it all together”. Great career, great family, great upcoming family perhaps, great social life; great everything. These are the people we love to idolize. We look up to them and think that they automatically got there, or were born with such privileges….

You Can Do It!

It’s exam period, and my thoughts drift to the young girls that prefer shortcuts to personal achievements; living on the fast lane to working their way to success. A lot of young girls feel pressured to live up to their friends’ lifestyles, often comparing themselves with the elite and trying to get to the same…

All Lives Matter!

Watching the news and being on social media these past few days has been the most gruelling it’s ever been. Especially if you subscribe to Al Jazeera , where they air news from across the globe; indiscriminately. We’ve seen the situation in LA. We’ve seen the situation in Iraq. We’ve seen the situation in Texas….

Nothing But Faith.

  I used to think that you could simply write out how you want to spend your life; and with whom you wanna spend it with. I thought it was all about planning, and proper discipline; setting your priorities right. I was right, to an extent. But I realized that you can not really plan…

The Price.

In my life, during my interactions with people and without needlessly stating the obvious, I have come to understand that success is one of those things that we all desire in life. Whether you’re born poor, born rich, born physically fit or otherwise, you want to be successful. You want for people to remember you…

Dear Woman.

A few years back I wrote this article, and I find it relevant enough to share it now; especially in a world where women seem to have completely lost personal value and self respect. This post is bound to evoke mixed reactions from everyone who chooses to have a read, but remember, these are just…

As You Grow!

As you grow, you get to see most of the things you thought you knew in a different light. You realize that your life is your life. Period. It’s your personal business, and the decisions you make are investments. If you make a stupid decision, you reap terrible fruits. If you choose to make the…
