The Right Path.

How often do you regret past decisions? Or, do you ever sit down and wish that your life took a different path? The thing about life is that we often look at what happens in other people’s lives and somehow wish that ours were just like that. We imagine what things would be like if…

Being Woman.

The other day, I was talking to one of my friends about random things, and we started discussing modern day “dating” and how hard it really is being a woman. Have you ever had someone approach you and say that they have seen how you operate and feel that you are a perfect fit for…

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…

Matters Education

As a keen observer of current affairs, I find it extremely hard to ignore situations wherein human rights are violated and thrown out the window. Over the past few months, I have noted with great concern the rising cases of school negligence when it comes to the health of the students. Remember the lady from…

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.”

What’s Passed Is Past.

Have you ever sat down to think about your past and some of the things you have been through; and just say, “Thank God I don’t look a thing like what I have been through”? I do. Each and every single person on this planet has a story. And in the same way, each person’s…

First, Take Care Of Yourself.

When you think about it, is your glass half full or half empty? Or is it not even a glass, and what you have in your hand is a cup? I don’t know, I’m just trying to bring perspective into this. You see, over time, depending on how you were raised or basically who you…

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…
