Well, hello Friday! So, if you’ve been keeping up with my words then you are probably wondering where the next installment of 10 Reasons Why is, and you are right. You’ll read about Joyce and Javans’ adventure tomorrow-I for one, would love to know what will happen in Kereita forest.
However, let’s take a look at my week and the events leading up to this weekend.
- I finally had my tooth extracted and what a joy it is to finally sleep without taking painkillers every four hours!
- I am currently working on this years “Christmas” Edition of Nilichoandika magazine and while at it, I am learning that there is a lot more that I could do to produce quality content.
On reading: I cannot wait to read these titles this weekend:
On writing: I have not done much save for 10 Reasons Why and even as I write it, it’s not lost on me that I am yet to reach out to my mentor and work on a couple of drafts. Writing the final chapter of Sifuna has also been a chore because for some reason- a character that I find futile keeps making it to the end and it scares me not being able to write her off without killing the story’s flow.
This year has seen me listen to various albums and my go to “go get ’em” album is Kamikaze by Eminem and after watching the movie Venom six times, let’s just say that my ringtone had Grumpy asking questions with his eyebrows. I have also had Hillsong’s “There is More” on replay, often starting my day by listening to “Valentine” and “So Will I (100 Billion X)”- and then there’s this group, Why Don’t We, and being a hopeless romantic, I happened to listen to “Hard” and I have never looked anywhere else for a #thathurts kinda feeling, you feel me?
What albums have you listened to this month or this year that you keep turning to?
On my truth: I am learning that it is okay to let go of what hurts me, to look within and be gentle with myself when things do not go as I planned.
I am learning that my kind of love is uniquely my own and to label it, or try and fashion it into what other people expect it to be, is to slowly dim my spark.
I am learning that not everyone will find me successful because they’ll measure my success based on their standards- and my, what a score I’ll get, and how exhausted I’ll be if I keep trying to meet their standards.
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you’ll drop by tomorrow to catch up with Joyce and Javans’ fun with nature challenge at Kereita forest!
