STOCK TAKING 32

#2022 #Glory #Afroblogger

Hello Hello
February was a month to remember!!

It started on a good note with beautiful reminders of how I am loved. This was mainly from my friends.
One major thing that I was awoken to in February was the beauty of friendship, how I need to treasure my friends more and remain loyal. Loyalty goes a long way and it is one of the best gifts you can give to and receive from your friends. Are you a loyal friend? Myself, I value truthfulness and loyalty in my friendships and daily I ask God to make me available for my friends.
I spent half of February with one of my best friends and it is one of the best things that have happened to me this year. The love, pain, and future we shared will forever be a memory we cherish. I love you, my love.

To tell more of the Feb story, here is how it unfolded;

Moments with Kuc My love

I was;

Loving: My conversations with my closest circle of friends. One thing that helps me decompress and stay sane is having conversations with my close friends. I am the kind that talks to them for over hours on phone or has those long meetups. And February blessed me with such opportunities and my heart is glad. From breakfast dates with them to phone conversations and long WhatsApp chats, it was so liberating and I am forever grateful for God specifically picked the right friends for me.

Making: More time for God. One of my instructions from Him was to spend more and more time with Him. I obeyed and still do. I have no option about things to do with God. One thing I can say is that there is nothing sweeter than spending time with God, try it.

Eating: Healthy food that resonates with my heart’s desires. I was blessed to enjoy more fruits and vegetables as a way of adding color to my plate. Apparently, the more color of foods the better and it is fruits that are colored. Specifically, I enjoyed eating sweet bananas and pineapples. The pineapple is my favorite fruit.

Drinking: Lots of green tea and specifically I did basil tea to help clean my body. I took lots of water and other fluids to help clear the cough and flu that attacked me last month. I also drank lots of concoctions prepared by my mother, the woman always has a herb for most minor illnesses and she does this with guidance from our family doctor who is a qualified herbalist.

Some of my February reads

Reading: My normal books, this year I am reading one book per week and my best book last month was WILL by Mark Manson and Will Smith. Will’s life story got me thinking about my dad, childhood, the journey of self-discovery, and the life lessons I have gathered along the way. It’s a book I would gladly recommend any day any time. I also read some blogs and continuously read my bible – the best book for me

Listening: To lots of music and podcasts. These have overtime proved to be meditation and learning moments beyond just being therapy. It is interesting how certain mysteries have been made clear or explained to me while listening to songs. As for the podcasts, these are heavenly, listening to people share their minds has opened me to many worlds of thinking and enriched my knowledge.

Bookmarking: Quotes and stories from the books I am reading. I am also noting instructions from my devotions.

Thankful: To God for my twin’s wedding to his beautiful wife, the now Mr. & Mrs. Kajibwami. Micheal and Dorothy made beautiful bagole. I thank God for making the preparations smooth, providing abundantly that is 150% and more, and also making it colorful and memorable. 12.02.2022 will always be a landmark. The couple was also blessed with two extra wedding receptions and my heart was wowed. This wedding was another successful event that I have organized all by God’s grace. My twin is now married and I thank God for their marriage will exhibit the culture of heaven here on earth, it shall reign till we are no more. Dorothy and Micheal, nimbakunda munonga.

Following: Lydia K and Murugi Munyi of the TMI podcast. These women are a powerhouse. I am also following Dr. Eunice Adubango for her wisdom and Flavia K. Tumusiime for her dope content.

Watching: Some Nigerian movies and lots of music videos to calm me down. Music has a way of making me laugh, viewing life with more positivity, and also helps me relax from lots of stress. I have also been watching the actions of people around my life plus the words they say.

Creating: Content for my blog, social media handles, and journal. Last month, I wrote the Money Matters Series and you can read part one, two and three 👈there.

Wanting: To go on vacation to a far destination with phones off and without my work laptop. Just so that I can fully rest. I am still waiting on God for this… Oh how sweet it shall be, a memory I shall forever hold dear in my heart.

I am so ready for vacation cc: looks and shoes😂

Wasting: No time on unavailable people and naysayers. People who intentionally put me on the side, those I am letting go of. This is mainly because relationships that are not growing give me anxiety.
So I usually let go after trying all I could to grow them.

Hoping: That I shall be debt-free by the time I make 30. May is soon and I am trusting God to help me stay focused, give me favor, and more opportunities to create wealth so that I clear the remaining few debts. Financial freedom is one of my goals for this my personal life.

Wondering: Why do people promise things they never do or deliver on. Especially when there is no genuine explanation for the failure. Not keeping one’s word is something that bothers me about humans.

Making a Toast: To the present and intentional men in my life. These guys love me fully, challenge me greatly, look out for me intentionally and protect me wholly. I cannot trade them for anything. My lovely fathers, male besties, mentors, adopted sons, and brothers, cheers to doing more life with you. Thanks for providing shoulders for me to lean on.

The ❤️ necklace and watch❤️

Marveling: At the loving hand of God. God has loved me and on me. I am surrounded by love and I can feel it vividly. I am confident and assured that I am loved and this has made my calling clear and clearer every day. God has showered me with overwhelming love. I received a beautiful necklace and watch as gifts last month and these communicate to me the love of God for me and the glory He has crowned me with.

Noticing: That I am of great value. I possess greatness within me and am called to greatness. I bring value to every place that I step into and add value to every life I encounter.

Knowing: That I should Empower myself enough to speak how I want to be loved / what I want, my life is a sum of my decisions hence I should make better ones and the truth that this is the youngest I will ever be.
So I should enjoy this season!

Smelling: Better money-making opportunities, more love, beautiful gifts, lovely celebrating moments, purposeful relationships, and transformation come my way.

Living healthy as I secure the bag

Asking God: For knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. I am also asking Him for strength to let go of what is not right for my physical, mental, financial, intellectual, and spiritual health.

Looking forward to: My upcoming blogs on the lessons from the women in my life. This is something I am doing to celebrate women since March 8th is International Women’s Day. I also look forward to making better choices each day and living out my fullest potential.

March

… Is here and surely the Lord, is the portion of my inheritance and my cup; He maintains my lot. The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Yes, I have a good inheritance. Amen.
I am blessed in this month, I attract good tidings, love, money, and great minds. I will sore on wings like eagles and my cup of unending peace will overflow.

To you my friend

I pray for you to smile more and receive love and honor in their purest form this month. May you live to taste of the Lord’s goodness

How we are smiling through March. 📸s taken at the couple’s third reception.

Remember that;

You are;
• Chosen
• Loved &
• Enough

Happy New Month!


Just to Note:
You’re better off starting a relationship with Jesus Christ.

I LOVE YOU!
