Timeless advice From Gary Younge

I’ve been reflecting a lot lately; on where I have been, where I am and where I am going. One of the experiences that stands bright in my memory is my Masters graduation on 19th July 2017. It was wonderful being back in a city that I called home for 4

I love the idea of monthly blog reflection: Candids from the last month; from people to experiences to pictures to items. Favorites only, because good vibes are all the hype and should be celebrated. It’s a new year: I love new beginnings…especially when they come packaged as a different last digit

Best of 2017

It really is December. Christmas really is 3 weeks away. 2017 really is almost over!!! I thought I’d share this before you’re right in the thick of Drinkcember and all other Christmas festivities that don’t leave much room for serious reading. So, yes. While we should audit our lives regularly, nothing

Twenty Four, Twenty More (Reminders For Your Twenties)

I am officially 24 years old! I can’t quite remember the last time I was THIS excited for my birthday. It must have been my 7th. A lavish celebration at Intercontinental Hotel, Nairobi. Then there was 21. 21 felt close to God, recharged and more sure of myself. And then

It’s A Mess. It’s Beautiful.

I love it when I meet someone who reads and even more, loves my blog. My heart automatically breaks into a happy dance. Occasionally, I do come across one or two who presume, directly or allusively, that I am perfect. The truth is, I mess up a lot. I do.

30 Days Of Journaling

I have kept journals consistently since I was 13, and it has added more value to my life than my years. Besides how much I enjoy reading my entries in retrospect, it is a practice that has helped me remain introspective, accountable, inspired and has encouraged me to uncover life’s

Masters Graduation Week

She’s magic, this one Last week was certainly one of, if not my best of the year so far. I spent it in one of my favourite places, celebrating an exciting milestone and getting some much needed away time. I decided against vlogging mostly because I wanted to be as

Six months. Halfway into 2017. Where on earth is the time going? I love the idea of monthly blog reflection: Candids from the last month; from people to experiences to pictures to items. Favorites only, because good vibes are all the hype and should be celebrated. Madaraka Day Brunch: When your

Best Five: Self Affirmations

As you may have noticed, my posts have been a little sporadic. Once upon a time, I would post on here every Monday, religiously. Once upon a time, I did not have a full time job and wasn’t required to be a full time adult. No complaints, no excuses, just

A Reminder: When it gets difficult

It’s raining. I love the rain. Out here in these smart streets, they call me a pluviophile. I am a pluviophile. A pluviophile whose life is dealing a crash course on a number of lessons. I’m ultimately really grateful. Things could be worse. That, and there is hope tied to

Happy Is She Who Likes Herself

I have this pretty necklace with my name on it, in Arabic. I got it as a 19th birthday gift from one of my first friends in uni and immediately loved it! At the time though, there was a lot of building tension, with regard to national security.  So much

You Are Not For Everyone and You Cannot Do Everything

What do I know for sure? Other than this being the almost-title of my favourite book, it is a question that has recently lingered in my mind. More so, when I have found myself in a mental tag-of-war of sorts. Over the past few weeks, I have been reminded of
