ME LATELY, JUNE 2018



"Whatever you are, be a good one."


Its that time of the month again; Taking stock

Reading: Two books at the same time, because I am such a book "whore" but I can justify myself with Virginia Woolf's quote; “I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading; since, as you will agree, one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs ten others at the same time.” And as for me it is always an adventure.

Wanting:To continuously challenge myself, face my fears head on, ask and answer questions that I haven't asked myself before. Paving myself to the world of exploration!

Looking: At life from a different dimension and perspective.Because I am willing to grow and became the person I am meant to be. Letting go all the comfortable masks and saying yes to criticism and novel challenges

Playing:Sandra Brooks songs repeatedly I FOUND THE ANSWER DOWN ON MY KNEES. Because assurance is the fuel that keeps me going.

Deciding
: On how to declutter myself. I love to travel light


Wishing:That as human beings we are more reasonable and sensitive to our fellow human beings. Our actions, words and gestures could hurt people and kick them off balance; always evaluate them before you use them

Enjoying: My vivid and wild imagination, if only someone could read my mind...but then there is no such a thing as a view from nowhere.

Waiting: To go home soon; #I am homesick and it hurts

Liking: This quote, "Whatever you are, be a good one." Voila!

Wondering: What the future looks like, but I choose to live for today; one day at a time. The future will look after itself

Loving: How my small sister and mum check up on me regularly. I owe you guys big time. And I am grateful because through your acts, I have felt loved and cared for in a special way, I have felt the warm embrace of your words and acts of kindness in my lowest moments.

Pondering
:On how better the world would be if we stopped "arriving at the scene too late. " Honestly, I believe the world would be a better place if we offered our help while it can still save someone, but we have always waited until its too late


Hoping: I can go for a gateway or road trip soon. Each time I get away I return rejuvenated and centred. Plus a get to experience new places, people and ways of life

Marvelling: At how much I have learnt in the past five months. To me learning is more meaningful when I intentionally put into practice what I have learnt. Of the most fundamental lessons I have embraced is the art of saying no as a full answer to a question and not feeling the need to justify my no , initially, I felt guilty and the need to try and justify and put issues into perspective....This is called GROWTH

Needing: Either long walk in a forest or a visit to an animal park Wearing: More off shoulder tops and dresses, it is one of my obsessions lately, but as always it is a matter of time before the liking disappears.

Noticing: How quickly people change, forget and became indifferent. So scary but such is the reality of life

Knowing
: That I should be too big to take offence and too noble to give it out has tweaked my attitude on how I respond to hate and hurt. On the flip-side however, It doesn't mean I accept to be treated lowly and disrespectful.


Thinking: That I need to give some of my dreams life or a second lease of life,a reminder that it is time to execute some of the plans

Admiring
: Natural, thick and voluminous hair. I have been growing my natural "mane" and I am happy and content with the results so far...two years on; no heat and chemicals; am I allowed to say this is consistency? Actually I deserve a standing ovation,;LOL 


Disliking: Two things actually; 1.People wanting you to treat them with dignity, respect when they cant offer it back;. 2. People expecting you to read their minds and act appropriately, how now? 

Feeling: That I wax and wane too much with stuff I am passionate about. At first I considered it as very retrogressive but I have learnt that passions flare and change, we live in a fast paced world that changes with each passing moment and this affects what we do. So I am in that space where I embrace stuff that resonate with me, and I am willing to do them to the best of my ability; I am in that bandwagon that owns the credo "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might" 

Wishing:That I can continue to pursue ways that make me to be a deep person. That I can be more intentional, aware and present, savouring and being in each moment, wholeheartedly committing myself to be the seed that was planted in good soil and multiplied hundredfold. 

Happy new month


Share your thoughts on stuff you have learnt


Love and light
