Happy new year good people 🥳🥳🥳

December and November were my second favorite months of 2022 after September. God showed off in many fabulous ways and I was blessed. Three of my good friends got married! They have moved on to start families now and I thank God. These were the last months of the year 2022 and yo, a lot happened above all I lived the best life as much as I could. Challenges too were there but God saw me through all of them.

And to you my lovely people;

I hope you have had time to reflect on 2022 and plan for 2023 since we are halfway through January…

My dreads are growing!

Let`s dive into my Nov & Dec update;

I was ;

Making: More time for God and I … I was seeking His guidance on many things. I needed a vision for 2023.

Eating: A lot of chicken and fries. Thanks to my love for irish potatoes, fries always make it to the list

Drinking: A lot of water, Ribena juice, and African tea.

Reading: Mainly blogs and tweets. This was the best opportunity I could get to read.

Wanting: Money and more of it to make it easy for me to solve certain world problems.

Wasting: No time blaming myself for all the things that went bad.

Wishing: I can travel soon for holiday. I need to rest. Yes, December was a ‘holiday’ kind of month but I spent it on a sick bed thanks to the motor accident I was involved in on 3rd December 2023… It left me unable to move, talk, eat, smile…

My comfort drink

Wondering: Why people enjoy spreading wrong information… How can someone be that toxic?

Hoping: My healing continues to manifest quicker than I could ever imagine.

Marveling: At the healing and providential hand of God. Being sick in Uganda comes with pain and the need for money to afford healthcare and good food. Through it all, God has provided. I have not lacked. I even received milkshakes every week. I’m also getting better and better each day.

Wearing: My hair in dreadlocks and my feet in sneakers… I will wear sneakers on pretty much any type of cloth

Following: Tony Otoa for life hacks and growth ideas, Ps. Sarah Jakes Roberts for all encouragement, TMI Podcast KE for all the juice and drama and Georgie Ndirangu for content creation lessons.

Smelling: A great wave of healing upon Uganda, my family, and myself.

Noticing: How I am loved and that I have beautiful friends who show up for me at all times. Thank you for loving and caring for me.

Knowing: No matter what happens to me, God got me right in His palms.

Bookmarking: People’s inspirational tweets.

Feeling: Grateful. I’m glad I’m alive to be loved and watch God heal me. Nothing is as magical and glorious as watching the stitches dissolve into my skin.

Thankful: For Beautiful friends. These have taken care of me during the challenging times. I am slso thankful for my health, I can now talk, speak, eat and my body is pain free.

Making a toast to: Life.

Looking forward to A new me… An elevated version of me. One that is enjoying increase, peace, and rest.

Song dedication: We testify by Deborah Lukalu.

May this year (2023) be a fresh start and better win for you.

Happy New Year … 🥂 to more writing from me

Until then, may peace and joy be your portion!
