The Family Unit

As a young child, you really do hold a lot of expectations. You believe in love. You believe in the family unit. You believe in growth. You believe in friendship. And you see a lot of potential in your own future; nothing can dare dim your shine. But the more you grow, the more the…

Step Into Your Own Persona

Now, I spent a lot of time toying around with this topic. I have also written numerous posts in the past about self comparison, feeling inadequate, knowing who you are and being true to yourself. In my observations, I’ve come to realise that most of us, at some point or another, have done things with…

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…

The Zig Zag Principle

We may be different people, given that no human being is like the other; but we all share a common goal: success. Success means different things to different people; some feel that having lots of wealth is being successful, some that having peace of mind is success, some that small but meaningful steps in the…

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.”

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…

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…
