What I Learned From 2017

Happy New Year everyone!๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ

2017 was indeed a very interesting year and so will 2018 be. I started this blog last year and personally, I was really impressed by the progress it had made and for sure there is more along the way. Writing has always been my passion since I was a child and for me to actually start my own blog and display my creativity for people to see has made me realize a lot of things. One of those things I’ve realized is that there are people out there who have the same interests as you who you can share and exchange your ideas with which has been amazing. Starting this blog has also made me realize my true talent which I truly thank God for blessing me with and how I shouldn’t take it for granted because opportunities come once in a lifetime.

Aside from my blog, I wanted to take this chance to also thank God for allowing me to see a brand new year and the plans that He has ahead for not just only me but for everyone. As I mentioned earlier, 2017 was indeed an interesting year. I got to learn a few things about life that I never imagined myself. One of the things that I learned was that we should enjoy life while we can. Yes…..there are times when things get hard, you go through ups and downs and a few challenges here and there. It’s normal and that’s life. But what I leaned was that if you spend most of your time grieving, some of the good things in life will pass you without even you knowing. Life is now and live it while you can.๐Ÿ˜

2017 also taught me to live my own life and by this I mean doing what you love the most and staying true to yourself. That’s what matters the most. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I see 2018 being another interesting and marvelous year. What about you?

Happy New Year once again!๐Ÿ˜Š

We Need To Move On!

A thought just came to my mind….

You know….it really sucks seeing our country take an ugly turn in terms of elections. Personally, I don’t understand the reason as to why we should be having unnecessary riots that won’t help us at all. I don’t understand the reason as to why we should be having the police armed with guns strolling through the town prepared to senselessly beat those who will cause havoc in the streets. Just because a certain political candidate didn’t win the first election means that we should act like hooligans making loud noises with our shirts off while holding branches of trees running through the streets saying this guy should have won instead of the other guy. Seriously….we need to style up and move on people! I’m not a political person but I do know that as a country, we are supposed to have free and fair elections without any fuss. These guys who run after politicians’ cars so that they can be given money….you’re being lied to. Do you know that guy who you’re running after won’t help you pay your rent when the landlord tries to kick you out? Do you know that politician you’re running after won’t help you to put food on your table? Do you know that the same politician you’re running after won’t to get you employed when you’re jobless? That guy will lure you into voting for him and at the end of the day, you will watch him slowly eating his money and will have forgotten you. I don’t really think if most people reason in that perspective and it’s really sad whenever I see such things happening. I’m sorry to say, but these are one of the reasons why country will always be the way it is right now.

We believe in many things. I might not know what you believe in but personally, I believe in peace and harmony. I believe in a peaceful country where every citizen is entitled to their opinion but we can still stay together as a nation. We may all come from different backgrounds and tribes or we may be of a different gender or race. But one thing that binds us together is that we all live in the same country.

We really need to change as a country and stop bringing up these petty issues which will lead us nowhere. As I said earlier, we need to style up and move on. Think about it….

The Streets Of Nairobiย 

I was with a friend of mine in town at a certain building where we usually go chilling. I then decided to take a photo of the streets of the town.

 After I took the photo, I observed the picture and it made me realize how beautiful our streets in Nairobi are.The tall buildings we see everyday, the gigantic billboards that light up the night and the nature surrounding us is simply amazing. They say a picture means a thousand words but for me, it meant more than that. To me it meant that we pay less attention to the beauty of our streets and how magnificent they actually are. Some of us see negative side of it but if we just take time to see the bigger picture of our streets, we can start embracing their beauty.

Fuck Racismย 

Over the past few years, there have been many cases of racism throughout in some parts of the world. Racism isn’t just something that came up the other day, it’s been there for years since the days of our ancestors. Before we dive in, let’s ask ourselves what exactly is racism. Racism is form of discrimination towards a person due to his or her skin colour or origin. Personally, I think this shit is just fucked up and it needs to stop.

Racism isn’t something that just came out the other day, it’s been there for years since the day of our ancestors. I don’t really understand why a black person should be treated differently from a white person. Just because we’re black and they’re white??? ๐Ÿ˜• But do people really consider the effects racism brings along. Here are some of them:

1) Racism causes violence. Racism causes a strong rivalry between people (the blacks and the whites). People’s hearts are filled war that they want to keep fighting until one wins, which is not the solution.

2) Racism causes hatred. Hatred is filled all over the world when racism is being practised. People start to see each other as enemies and not friends.

3) Racism causes suffering. Many people suffer in the black community including both adults and children.

4) Racism causes loss of lives. Due to the pain caused by the oppression of black individuals, some people tend to commit suicide and sometimes are even shot dead. 

This should not be the case.๐Ÿ˜ข

In my perspective, racism is a vice that keeps on tearing people apart. However, I believe that racism can surely end by just doing one thing. Living together in harmony regardless of our race, gender, origin, occupation, background and religion. 

I stand up against racism and so should you.

Stop the hate, stop the violence and the let’s start living in harmony.

๐ŸŽถLet’s get together and feel alright๐ŸŽถ

Our Lives Are Driven By The Choices We Make

Since this being my first post, I wanted to write something inspirational to those young people out there who are chasing their dreams. Many people don’t know that the choices we make today will determine our future. Lupita Nyong’o said that dreams are valid and indeed they are. Some of us have dreams of becoming successful doctors, lawyers, engineers, pilots, name them. If we instill moral values in ourselves such as discipline and hard work it becomes easier for us to achieve our goals in life. Some of these choices I’m talking about are the friends you choose, the career you want to pursue, the lifestyle you live and others but a few. The world we live in today is full of challenges but if you yourself decide to get your shit together and make the right moves, trust me, those challenges are dead gone.

So make sure you start making the right decisions today so as to better yourself and the lives of those around you. It can make a huge impact in your life. Remember, your life is driven by the choices you make.

Hope you’re inspired by this.
