WRITING 101- ASSGN 1!

Hello everyone I am currently undertaking a bloggers challenge to scribbling anything that comes to mind and eventually post it and I must admit I am very blank. Many people think I am weird or strange or just plain quire, I think am just simply doing what everyone would love to do only I do it without thinking much about it at first. I love to dance strangely to songs simply because it feels really nice not to think so much about the rhythm or how your body looks while you’re doing it. I love to listen to people as they talk and just watch their entire body language and compare myself to them and see the differences and genuinely enjoy them. I love talking to animals because I know it is crazy and that makes me happy, to know that no matter how old I get I can still let the child inside out and believe that they can hear me they just don’t know my language so they don’t have the appropriate response. I love to look at art, it makes me feel proud to be human, that I am part of a species that has the ability to create and reinvent items at will. I also love gadgets, they fascinate me at how little I know of them, they are like puzzles to me and I love puzzles, taking long hours trying to figure out which piece goes where just makes me happy. I love sports, am not a wild fan but I like sports. I love playing the sports more than watching them because sports is basically learning a new skill and I love learning new skills, some of which I shall never use but I love them anyway. I love making funny faces there is no faster way to make yourself laugh than making funny faces, dancing weird and making strange noises like trying to imitate a bird or something. I talk to myself sometimes, and I think everyone should try this, it helps me understand a concept that is in my mind, helps me vent when no one is around and helps lighten up my mood which I think is a very healthy way of doing things. I now realize a lot of the strange habits and things that I love doing are all geared towards one common goal and that is to be happy, isn’t that what we all want. I am not sure but I think that a lot of people have strange or weird habits that they simply hide because they are afraid of what other people will think when they let this side of theirs out. I know what that is like, I was extremely closed up at one point of my life, and what I have learnt from letting the walls fall and simply do you makes life so much simpler and the people around you feel more comfortable to be around you and begin to understand you more which is really one of the greatest gifts to receive. Am slowly running out of words to say and I still have 6 more min on my clock so maybe I should say one of the greatest things that inspires as I close. My biggest motivation is being able to inspire and help others reach their true potential and see their dreams come true. If I could inspire just one person then I would have accomplished my life’s goal. I believe that everyone has amazing greatness in them just waiting for the right catalyst to ignite it. I am a strong believer in second chances and I believe that everyone as the potential to be great and wonderful, someone who the world will talk about generations after they are gone, and my life’s mission is to help other people realize this about themselves and about everyone around them. Parting words- think about it, at the end of the day when everyone’s titles and backgrounds are stripped off as if everyone in the world had amnesia at the exact same time, what would we be left with? We would be left with humanity, we are all human beings at the end of the day and that is the greatest bond we share we should cherish it and nature it in each other and see the gifts of each other flourish.

GOODBYE OCTOBER II

A year later after beginning my fashion and lifestyle blog (http://mkambalady.wordpress.com) and I mark it with a total of 1,055 views on the blog woohoo by Neil Armstrong’s words,  “That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind” hehehe.

It is so interesting that it is only the end of October that captures my eye guess October is my month. It’s currently raining very heavily and the drumming of the racing raindrops on the rooftop makes my mind drift off a little. Reminds me when I was about eight years old and I would stand by the window just to see the water fall as it formed streams on the ground. I would imagine all sorts of silly things, at the time I would imagine if I could go and play in the rain like the kids in movies. We would even manage to jump in slow motion like them and laugh like there is no care in the world. I love rain, it soothes me and always reminds me of one of the funniest days of my life, my saddest, as well as my most sober. Well it has been a year since the last October I said goodbye to and I feel it is time to reflect on what I have learnt so far. I am tempted to go to my last post (https://kalekyemuia.wordpress.com/2013/11/01/goodbye-october/) but for authenticity I will write this list first then you and I can compare and see have I grown or am I still where I was last October (that sound like a rock song in the making). Here goes nothing;

  1. I have learnt that God is number one and everybody else including me falls after. This is a lesson that I keep re-learning over and over with each lesson stronger than the last. The reason I say this is because He has always remained a constant in my life even when I had made a mess of things. He remains the strong pillar I can rely without fear of being turned away and finding someone so mighty who can love me the way He does is a blessing I am yet to fully grasp, thank you Lord for always being there.
  2. I have learnt that your family will always be the people who have known you since you were in diapers so respect their advice and seek their guidance. Being the last born comes with the blessing of seeing your siblings trials and errors and learning from them. I am very grateful to God for my loving family, I don’t know a more caring, understanding bunch than these 4 people in my life.
  3. I have learnt that my mother actually knows a thing or two about life, not just my mum but all my elders. It’s not that I never knew this, I just never appreciated this fact more than now.
  4. I have learnt that character is more important than all other human qualities. This has truly helped me gauge who are going into my close nit community and those who will stay back a little, with no apologies btw.
  5. I have learnt that there are lessons in life everywhere we look we just have to open our minds to see them and actually learn from them.
  6. I have learnt that I am the holder of my destiny, where I choose to throw my dice is where they will fall. Life doesn’t happen to you, life only responds to you.
  7. I have learnt that the saying ‘ show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are’ is very true, so look around at the friends you keep, they say a lot about you. Also watch how you feel around them, trust your intuition if something is amiss do not ignore it.
  8. The best test to any relationship is the test of time , true friends remain true no matter the time apart and the distance between you.
  9. The glass is always half full because in life there is always room for improvement.
  10. Last but definitely not least, puis will remain my favorite pet in the world hehehe. Yes he had to show up in here somewhere, I have learnt so much about life from him you would think he is a professorJ.

I will leave it at ten because anything else I add will either be a repetition or as silly as no. 10, thanks for reading and feel free to share what you have learnt this October or what you have learnt since the last. See you soon lovely people.

What Am I Doing Wrong?????

That was a refreshing read on such a beautiful Sunday, let us love ourselves today, happy Sunday everyone!

Linda Lange's Blog

Have you ever asked yourself (or God) that question? What am I doing wrong? Why am I not getting well? Why are all these things happening to me?

I had asked that same question this week after having another thee-day headache! I know what headaches are from… several things actually… but the main thing is self-conflict.
So, what was I doing wrong? What was my self-conflict? I began praying for forgiveness and cleansing of all sin, defilement, etc. I even forgave everyone involved in my day. But still no relief… Then as I asked God, truly from my heart, “What is it I’m doing wrong?” He immediately said, “Ask yourself, what are you NOT doing?”
As I thought on that… I realized what I wasn’t doing was loving myself!!! I knew that was right because I began tearing up. I was so busy “trying” to appease others, trying to make…

LIFE LESSONS

I have been going through archives of some of the stuff I have written and never posted and I must say I am very proud of myself hehehe. Sometimes we forget to look in the mirror and see the beauty that truly lies within us, we sometimes forget to celebrate ourselves for who we are. Today I will share a short post I wrote a year ago and yet it is so interesting how am still learning this things, guess my mum was right learning never stops, dumn it! Well here goes nothing hope you enjoy.

I have learnt (and still learning);

That friendship is only as good as the friends you have

That hanging out with someone the whole day is healthy (this is for all  the introverts in the house)

That being yourself is so much more rewarding

That wearing short skirts does not mean am feeling cold (freez and shine syndrome)

That change is as good as a rest

That being honest is more important than being nice

That life has a lot of unexpected twists

That you need to plan for tomorrow today

That being prepared is essential to being successful

That being happy is my responsibility and no one else

That being a go getter is a good quality in life

That working hard comes from understanding what you want first

That a goal is just a dream with a deadline #drake

That everyone has there own life and we should not judge them for it

Don’t judge a book by its cover and don’t judge a family/ person by there payslip (think i read this somewhere)

That I am my own best friend

That you can learn alot about life from children and those younger than you

That you can also learn alot about life from nature (just look hard enough you’ll see it)

That there is no other me in the world so be happy and proud of that

That even cold rainy days can make you feel warm inside so smile about them

That you can not hold on to what is not yours

That everyday has worries of its own so only worry about today (Jesus talk-Matthew 6:34)

That in the end all that really matters is my relationship with God

For today this is all I have , please share some of the things you have learnt I would love to hear your story and if you resonated with anything feel free to give a virtual high five we are in this together.

When I confessed to my EX’s questioning of my fidelity over a year ago, all she could say was “wow”. She seemed very taken aback by my answer. So today, when I was asked ‘why men cheat’ by a young lady during a Public Speaking event, I was initial hesitant to share the full conversation me and my EX had about her suspicion of my lack of loyalty.

“Can you tell me why all men cheat on loyal Women?” a curly haired PreMed student asked me today, during my public speak to a room full of 300 Women. My response to her question was,

“Males cheat on loyal women to boost their ego. A woman can be perfect for him. Beautiful, career minded, own money, cooks, does whatever he wants her to do in bed, loyal, intelligent, educated, faithful and…

THINGS AVE LEARNT FROM MY PET II

I always find it so interesting the simple lessons that our cat keeps teaching us without even trying to.Two days ago my sister and I were having fish and ugali for lunch and after serving my plate I heard Pius meowing from the back door and instinctively ran outside through the front door where my sister was sand papering her bed. She obviously looked at me with that strange look of ‘what are you doing’ so I explained that I was running away from Pius, we all know how he gets crazy eyes the minute he smells fish and I wasn’t in the mood to start fighting with him over my meal. She of course thought I was crazy and got up to serve herself only to be running to where I was saying the exact same thing. Unlucky for us Pius is not stupid he knows when he has smelled fish and simply followed that smell and found us outside hiding like the cowards that we were. I could almost see the look of shame in his face going tsktsktsk oh how we let him down. Now that we were caught and the scorching sun was becoming unbearable, we went back into the house to face the dreaded Pius.
As usual he kept insisting with those fake huge- ‘am an extremely good cat’- eyes he likes to put on only when he knows u have something he wants, and we kept telling him to relax we will feed him(eventually). The sweet eyes tend to only last a few minutes before he starts to go wild like one of those tantrum children who cry in the supermarket coz they want some damn expensive chocolate( why don’t they just go for the cheep stuff, it always has to be something that will really pinch your pocket!). Anyway, as we were trying to explain to him why we had to remove the bones first because we dint want him to chock to death, saying that we were only protecting him and if he could just be a little more patient he would have his fish, it hit me how in that moment we were the higher beings understanding something little Pius could not. My mind spiraled out of control thinking of how if there are aliens out the(or other higher beings) then maybe that is how they look at us, like some idiots who just like Pius don’t understand how they are really helping rather than hurting us. That is when the big revelation came up; maybe that is how God see things too!
Just like Pius we approach God in prayer when we see something we want; we put on those sweet eyes and ask so politely while stating our case. When we don’t get it, just like Pius we go CRAZY meowing all over the place calling for as much attention as possible hoping that will work. Then we change tactic, just like Pius when we don’t get what we want when we want it, we go to the next extreme and keep quite, sit down and pretend we don’t want it anymore, in fact we don’t need it, we were fine without it so you can keep it! However just like him once again we go crazy the minute someone dangles that meat in our faces and start asking for it again. However the same way we don’t give Pius fish without first looking through the meat to make sure it is safe for him, which actually takes some time, God also has to ensure that whatever we ask for is given to us at the right time when it is safe for us to have it.
You have probably asked and prayed for something- for years even- and just like Pius u don’t understand why God isn’t gracious enough to give it to you knowing how much you love it or even need it. The truth is He, just like us, is probably sifting through it making sure it is safe for you and it takes time to remove those tinny bones. So don’t pretend not to want it anymore, because the same way we know when Pius is acting nice just to get something from us is the same way God knows you. Instead be patient and trust that just like us, God would never selfishly ignore your needs and wants but at the same time He will always have your best interests at heart first.
And there you have it, once again Pius gives us sound life lessons which left my sister and me with more faith that God will always come through for us, we just need to be patient when He is removing the tiny little bones from the fish.
