There is nothing like a bad life. We only have bad days (Unknown)
Reading: Lightning by Sydney Sheldon. I had recently cut back on how much fiction I read. This book is however taking me back to my “novel addiction” years. Yup! I was an addict. I used to read a novel during preps on an exam night in high school. (Hi, am Judith and am a novelholic – That’s how bad it was)
Watching: Vampire Diaries Season 7. I love sci-fi shows and I love Ian Somerhalder(“Damon Salvatore”). I have to admit it saddens me that this TV series ended but am happy I have one more season to go before saying goodbye. (Sniff sniff 😦 😦 )
Spending: more time reading and subscribing to online Prayer and Bible study websites. You learn so much from these sites and on the upside you get to read Bible verses which is very hard for most of us to do with our busy schedules. Having Bible verses delivered to your Email every day is a good way to go if you are too busy to go to church and want to stay close to God.
Trying: to wear my natural hair more often. Am a braids person. You see me going to the salon, it is to undo my hair, get it washed and treated and then plaited again. I haven’t had a weekend to myself recently so not time to braid. Apart from the combing and styling hustle in the morning, I have to say I enjoy wearing my natural hair.
Back to: taking aimless selfies when alone. I used to do that a lot then I stopped for a bit. I might be going back again. Oh well, we all have those guilty pleasures. I guess now I told mine.
Compiling: a motivation challenge series dubbed #30 days of motivation on my Instagram. I feel motivated, do you? Check out my posts and one of them might just touch you. Plus I really needed some motivation this month.
Improving: On my eating habits. I’ve actually started cooking in my house and I’ve kinda reduced my junk food intake. (You should be clapping right now!!- I never cook) Plus, am trying out something new every day. Fun, right?
Remembering: to pray every day. Prayer works miracles. I have been dealing with a lot in the past few months and though the struggle is still there, prayer gives me comfort. Knowing that the most powerful being on the planet has got your back is a light in the darkest hours and I am slowly learning that you can completely let go and leave everything to him and you will be just fine.
Loving: Formal dresses. I think official dresses are the coolest thing ever. This has a lot to do with the fact that my job requires of it. Still, formal dresses can be quite fashionable to say the least! If you find the right size and pair with the right shoes.
Wanting: a new car. This is long overdue. Ideas?? Please don’t say Vitz (don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against the car. I actually think it is really cute. But really!!??)
Admiring: my boss. The woman is young, really nice and very stylish. She drives a Jaguar!! Yes. A JAGUAR. I literally want to be her when I grow up.
Knowing: “like” is not enough for me. I am not going to be with someone because I like them. I want to be in love, to be addicted, to feel like I cannot live without him. I want to be with someone who rocks my world, who makes my heart skip a bit when he walks in to the room, who brings a smile to my face when I see his call, someone I will cry over. I want passion, I want to be head over heels in love. I don’t want to just LIKE! It’s not good enough.
Following: Janet Mbugua’s blog. This woman is inspiring. I can relate to her posts and I always look forward to reading new items on her site.
Also following: all the African blogger websites I can find. I have discovered so many in the past few months. Some are motivational bloggers, others talk about clothes, style, make up, cooking and home making among other things. A love to read and learn new things so this is really an exciting thing for me.
Curious: about career photographers. Lyra Aoko, Ben Omwaka of #Twenderaundi- You might also know him from the recent SGR Photography Competition among many others; what they do seems so cool. Am not really an outdoor person but in another life, I would have definitely been a photographer.
Yearning: for a weekend gate away. It has been like forever since I had a fun weekend. With work and a lot of other things to worry about and take care of, I can’t remember the last time I had weekend full of fun.
Sipping: on my second cup of lemon green tea. Helps to clear skin and many other things that I’ll talk about on a future post.
Signing: off since tomorrow is a work day and the start of a long weekend. A girl’s gotta have her beauty sleep. Right?
Have a beautiful Labor Day Weekend.
Much Love 🙂 🙂
