#BOTY2020 #AfroBloggers

BOTY commonly known as the Best Of The Year is that other way of helping us do write-ups as the year ends. All thanks to #Afrobloggers for putting this particular one together.
I love to say 2020 has interestingly turned out to be my unique year. As much as it came with lots of pain, God still gave me more joyful moments, memories and experiences.

Here are the #BOTY 2020 awards in my J World,

My #BOTY … Award goes to;

Best Movie: MULAN An American Adventure/action movies that lasts for two hours. It is my best mainly because of its creativity and display of many emotions. I could relate with Milan’s zeal and yes the fighting skills also kept me entertained. Niki Caro did an epic job even amidst all the criticism.

Best TV show: KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS. This family is just interesting. I love their drama. It gets me laughing on the few days I have watched TV.

Best book (non fiction): POWERFUL LIVING by Beatrice Byemanzi. The book has great wisdom and encouragement for most life challenges. It officially joined the books I read every year. I love her stories too, I felt like I was reading about myself all through.

Best Music/Track: PROMISES by Maverick City. This takes me to Heaven and back. A very timely track that has held me sober this whole year

Best Highlight Experience: PIERCING MY EARS for the first time. This has been one of my greatest fears in life. Generally, I hate anything that inflicts pain on my body and this was the reason as to why I feared piercing my ears. However, on 8th December 2020, I braved my heart and went to pierce my ears. I am in love with my new look. The boldness with which I went to the peircing shop just reminded me of the fact that I am a Lioness and therefore I should not let fear take hold of me. The girly look also keeps me laughing everyday when I see myself in the mirror.

Best Meal: WHITE RICE and some leafy vegetables called ‘NAKATI‘ in Luganda a language spoken in Uganda. I discovered this combination this year and it has done wonders for me. My stomach is always happy after consuming it. I will gladly do white boiled rice with Nakati anyday.

Best Customer Service: CJ’s that is CAFE JAVAS. This is a restaurant chain in Uganda and Kenya. Their customer care service is by far still the best for me in Uganda because each time I visit any of their branches, I get to enjoy great food, great coffee, beautiful ambiance,clean wash rooms, beautiful interior decorations, loving and courteous waiters and waitresses. Generally, I receive an experience that makes my time fabulous each time I visit any CJ’s branch in Uganda.

Best News Story: The News about the fact that Scotland had passed a bill that has made period products such as tampons and pads free to all who need them. This made my heart smile and pushed me to have hope for such laws to be passed and implemented in Africa.

Best Purchase: GREY BOOTS. This was a pair of shoes that I gifted my friend this December as she graduated from some mentoring program. I love its color in addition to the truth that the recipient loved it and it did fit her. It is a pair that matches with most kinds of attires.

Best Achievement: Being available and able to stand with my friend when she lost both her parents in different months of this year. Staying by her side to be of any help and encouragement was an opportunity I thank God for letting me serve in. I also was available and able to help my friend’s wife with house chores and company while at 8months pregnant. I also baby sat the baby for 1 month. Through it all, I have learned what it means to love practically and have faith in God.

Best Lesson learned: LOVE ALWAYS WINS and OBEDIENCE is better than sacrifice. God created me out of love and for love.

Best blog post: My LESSON SERIES and STOCK TAKINGS. These articles literally are me that is on one hand I shared what I have been learning throughout my life while on the other hand I get to evaluate how each month of 2020 was lived. This keeps me alive and healthy as I run the race to become better and help people perform better.

Watch out for part two…

It is also my earnest prayer that you finish strong in the remaining 18days to the end of 2020.
I love you!

I am the Lioness Arising!
