APRIL AND MAY RECAP : ON THRIVING

Hey hey!!!
I bring you greetings and hugs from the “mountains of the moon” (Mountain Rwenzori in Western Uganda) if you have plans of visiting Uganda add it to your list as soon as now.
That’s my way of saying I have been very lost on the blog and for a moment I started feeling like a myth. Talk about the Bachwezi or pinnocio. I felt like a secret agent for the CIA or one of those so many security agencies who had been forced to abandon you my family to take on a job (lol😂).
Before we get too comfortable drinking this juice I am serving in this blog post, do allow me say Happy New month, may happiness over ride and over take you my beautiful blog family.

April and May are that cousin you are not allowed to talk about over dinner or family meetings because she brings back all those memories. Like I mentioned I have been through one of the craziest sets of exams which had me chained to the desk all month. You are probably tired of this my exam excuse for inconsistency on the blog… well I am tired too. I have been through all those questions from whether education is life, to giving examples of how “gundi” did not go to school but he is successful. Then that thing about Uganda importing Cuban doctors just gave me so many alternative job ideas which I will not be sharing on the blog for security reasons.
Throughout this marathon of exams I learnt to focus on the finish line and not the process because once I understood that all this was worth it, I naturally had to keep on keeping on.

anything that costs you your peace and joy is too expensive

I have also had to fall off the fence these past months. I must admit that living on the fence is like sleeping on a fluffy bed with soft pillows and teddies and having Alejandro and his band play you soothing music. Choosing sides on the other hand is like the Sahara, for the first few days your lungs can barely take in the hot air. I have been learning to make difficult choices and stand by them in the face of popular opinion. I have also learnt to accept the fact that some days, maybe most, you will be an anomaly, you will choose things people flee from ,so choose them unapologetically.
I have also learnt that when people ask you to be more open minded they are usually asking that you put aside your own opinions and take on theirs.

When I adopted my May tag line “May you thrive” I probably wasn’t prepared for what I was signing up for. May dashed in like a hurricane that stripped me naked. On so many days I found myself very vulnerable something non of us is comfortable with. May forced me to embrace change, to look death and life in the face and above on to move on from the storm.
I had to learn how to get comfortable being uncomfortable. Talking about things I’d usually rather leave unsaid because well “what’s the use of having a voice if you are going to remain silent in those moments when you shouldn’t.”

June, the sky is too close to limit me

For June I am ecstatic, the sky is too close to limit me. The joy that comes with being on holiday is already taking its glow on my skin and “Kaweke” (4C natural hair). Also the number of books lined up on my To Read list is bomb. I will be sharing a post on here every week (pray for me and my consistency) and I have something for you on our first edition on the life series this year.

This new month, I pray that happiness fills the chambers of your soul. That strength and courage to do the things your soul craves find themselves your way. That your purpose in this life is confirmed to you with Crystal clarity. That you learn to accept kindness and give it easily. I pray that you thrive this June. Happy New month.

Otherwise,
How was May for you? Also share with me on whichever lesson you found yourself nodding. I’d love to know how you got through yours.

  1. “I have also learnt that when people ask you to be more open minded they are usually asking that you put aside your own opinions and take on theirs.”

    Haha, that’s so true! Very few people seem to be comfortable with allowing others to form opinions of their own. In any case, it’s wonderful to see you and your friends looking so happy! I hope that June is a great month for you 🙂

    1. I think it’s because we don’t want anything that challenges our preconceived ideas on a matter.

      Otherwise

I pray to the Most High that you grab that strength and use it max, gurl! We need your articles….that includes I, for one. In case you need help on that, just ask away. 50 big hugs for you.
