Every now and then its good to take time……listen to your heart and the humming….
Take risk,an opportunity and decide no matter what comes out… you gave it a second chance.
The year 2014 has been exceptional…phenomenal,inspiring and life changing..to me.
Given another chance for the same year i wouldn’t change anything at all…from the challenges to the opportunities i have had.

ATHOUSAND QUESTIONS

At times I sit and wonder,
Ponder about some hard life questions,
Who am i? Am I really in the right place?
Am I proud of the life I’m living?
What have I tried this month that ‘s newPhoto0134?
How has the past week impacted me?
What’s the new thing I have learned today?
How is my today? Am I living life fully or sleepwalking?
Where does my tomorrow lie?
Am I doing what I love to do?
What’s my passion?
Do I wake up with a purpose everyday?
Is what I do my passion
What if I wake up one day and am told..
We no longer need your services?
Am I ready to move on with my life?
Can I shrug off my shoulders and say..
Yeah I looked forward to this moment…
What if I don’t get a paycheck at end month?

ooh this rose

ooh this rose


Will I continue to do what I love?
What parts of my childhood faith am I leaving behind,?
And what parts am I choosing to keep?
Do the people I’m spending time with give me life, or make me feel small?
Is there something in my life that’s keeping me from moving forward?
What have I learned about God this year?
This and many more questions are my tomorrow’s fears….
These are hard questions that range in my mind day in day out.
When I sit down and listen to my conversations the answers range from No to maybe or Yes and a reason to move on with life.
I will not sit down and assume all is well with me. There are lots of changes and things that need to be done not by anyone else but just me.
I am not where I want to be, but am on my way there. My career my life needs TOTAL transformation.
The big question is am I moving towards that direction clearly?
The answer is NO. what do I do? A lot is what I need to?

My prayer today

The accident-how I survived

Of late,A few of my friends have come across this message from my social networks
‘BIG Thank you to u all my family, ma pals & colleagues at work for your concern and support endless calls, visits & messages to check on my progress after the accident. My God loves me so big.

I’m a living example that miracles still happen to-date. May His favor be upon you all.’
This has been my song since 21st March, 2012 when I had an accident in town.
We are all happy about the newly constructed Thika superhighway lest we are careful, with the same Kenyan drivers then it’s a pity that precious lives will continue to be lost.
It was a Wednesday like any other day and I woke up, prepared myself to go to work.
Since the super highway was opened I only need 15-20minutes to be in town. I went to stage took PSV to town. By 10 minutes to 8am I was in town.
There was a jam from Ngara and the Matatu decided to drop us there so we alighted.
I was feeling energetic, decided to walk because the flyover was closed and no vehicle was allowed to pass from Ngara to town leaving only vehicles from town to use it. We walked as a group towards town.
As I approached Meridian Hotel i wanted to cross .I checked from town to confirm no vehicle was coming but Alas, a car hit me from sides of Ngara. I felt my world come to an end. I saw a blackout, it was traumatic experience .In a fraction of few seconds, there was a small crowd gathering watching and pitying me for what had happened.
I had been hit by a personal car, thrown to bumper, hit the windscreen with my head, my hands, legs, knees were bleeding because of bruises sustained .My left hand shoe was thrown far away, there I lay at the ground speechless and motionless. A Good Samaritan from the crowd named Geoffrey came to my rescue. The first words were to tell the driver of the car to take me to hospital and it turned out to be Mater Hospital.
He took care of my personal things; my bag not a thing was lost. The distance to the hospital was the longest I ever had in my life. I was crying bitterly, and hate towards the lady who hit me, only that I was not in a position to talk. He asked me where my phone was reached for it called my relatives informed them of the incident . I got to Mater casualty,
I was given first aid for the injuries sustained and done scan for my head that was terribly aching. I thank my God no brain injuries sustained, I nursed severe headache for three days and I was relieved. I was not admitted, was told to go home and have one week bed rest.
My peak was at the rate which my family, friends, my colleagues at work; my bosses were so much concerned and rushed to check me. Some had to call me everyday to check how I was fairing, sending sms and visits. I was very happy and I recovered very well in one and half week I was back to work very energetic.
It has been more than three weeks now, I am recovering well the scars are healing pretty fast when I look at them they remind me how my God loves me, I still got life to live, he has given me chance to review, revisit my life and live according to his purpose. Yes I have got so much to share with the world before he calls me home to rest.
I have learnt not to be angry to anyone even those who never checked on me,infact am happy and I know for real my parents are there for me. My dad had to travel from far to come and see me before anyone else.
To the lady who hit me Hellen,thank you for not running, accepting you did a mistake, taking the courage after hitting me to drive me all the way to the hospital, paying my bills, checking on my progress, accompanying me to write police statements. Oh! I have to thank DTO-police headquarters Wanjala you are lovely and charming person thank you for helping me get through this, your assistance was highly appreciated.
Hellen this is to let you know from the bottom of my heart I have forgiven you, everyone does a mistake. I only wanted my health back, peace of mind and ability to work as I did before which I did. I know you can never pay me enough for what you did to me as I can not pay my God who protected me that time and saying thank you is infact understatement.
I have left this to God, I don’t want any single cent from you,and my health is back am happy for that.

Oh and I forgot to tell you I have a neighbor who had accident like me. She was not badly injured instead of being grateful she went for money, built a shop which was doing well until one day, when fate happened that everything she had totally burnt up to today she is still recovering. Why do I tell you this? I know the God we serve is JUST TO ALL..

Things that annoy me

1. Failure to keep time-There is discipline in keeping time and I would appreciate it when people tell me that they won’t make it in time rather than dragging and showing up late after one hour. Over the weekend I invited a friend of mine to catch up in town. We were to meet at 2pm ended up showing at 3.15pm. I contemplated leaving but I held my patience unlike me but I was so pissed.Later on shows up with a group and no apologies but thanks have learnt a lesson
2. Complaining
– I decided to be a positive person and I hate being around pessimistic people. Those who decided never to see anything positive in life. I hate when someone keeps on comparing how life was yester years to todays’. There is inflation, cost of living is going up day after day, so when you keep on telling me this was kshs.2 and now its 20shs sorry I won’t look at you because we can do nothing to go back to what it used to be. Life is changing and the faster we accept the better. For God’s sake please even appreciate the free air you are using to talk ….its in appreciating the little we have and being content that God blesses us. Look around you and appreciate what you have and say THANK YOU.
3. Over reliance– I have many friends but AT TIMES its good to be on your own.
I hate it when you tell someone to meet you then later shows up with a group simply because he/she is afraid to walk alone. Yes that might be the reason but somewhere along the line in this life we have to discover that there comes a point when we have to do some things alone because human beings are prone to error and will always disappoint you no matter what. When I arrange with my friends to meet we catch up in town ,some minutes before the meeting I receive texts ‘I am sorry I cannot make it’ and you wonder if all along they knew they will never show up why didn’t they tell you. I don’t give it a damn so I meet one or two who have showed up. If we where to go for shopping and no one shows up I happily go alone because I will not be told how this cloth looks so bad when I know I like it.
4. Littering– I don’t know if it’s me or what I cant stand people who throw dirt, garbage and litter everywhere. It pains me because the responsibility of keeping environment clean lies between me and you. If we had had an account of responsibility litters and all sorts of dirt would be past tense. Thanks to my former University because if you had to litter then you were fined kshs 2,000 .it has taught me discipline
5. Pride– I don’t like people who show off no matter what. I always tell them the better if you ain’t noticed at all in the wrong motives by pinching peoples ‘nose’ and telling them ‘know people’ .Its been said pride goes before a great fall.
