Today’s Inspirational Quote Is

Have  A Fabulous Friday!

Bonfire..

I blog because I enjoy writing out my thoughts, it helps to put things in perspective. It is important for me to document some of the things that I go through so that I can have a point of reference whenever I think about what I have learnt throughout the years. My memory is basically Garbage In Garbage Out GIGO  so it is definitely nice to have this blog to go through to remind myself about the mistakes I have made and the experiences I have been through.

I think I have somewhat grown/changed this year. I have always had the policy of doing unto others what I would like them to do unto me. But time and time again I keep realising that people do not give a damn! As a result, I do not give a damn about those who do not give two craps about me either.

I am done with putting the needs of others before mine, I said that before in an old post, but now I actually do it and it feels good. I do not see why I should suffer in order to please others, they do not feel a thing making me do something just to make THEM happy!

By bridges I do not mean people, more like habits. I like having the freedom to do what I want and feel good about it. If you treat me like an option, do not expect me to make you my priority, it is as simple as that.

Sadly, this year I have been disappointed by very many people that I never expected. This has made me wary, and conscious about the things I do, it is never easy loosing faith in people who you believed so much in.

But all hope is not lost..

 

 

Lovers, Friends and good music!

I am 100% sure that everyone has struggled maintaining a balance between their friends and their significant others SO.

Your friend gets into a new relationship and you have to grapple with the fact that you are not their top priority any more. You must accept the fact that there is a new addition to the group whether you like it or not, and make an effort to accommodate your friend’s SO because they are now a major part of their life.

You meet someone new and you are dying for your friends to like them, because their opinion matters and you want them to like your new SO.

Both sides of the coin are never easy, but it is important to maintain a healthy balance between your friends and your better half.

I am no expert on how to maintain this balance, in fact I always have trouble with this whenever I am in either of the above situations.

I lost myself in my last relationship and I really struggled to make my former SO and my friends happy because both parties sometimes felt neglected. Being the people pleaser that I am, I always used to feel so guilty because it is impossible to please everyone. Hopefully I learnt from my mistakes and will get it right in the future.

I have friends who are in relationships, and I really try and respect that fact, and try to adjust because things have to change. I cannot hog their attention any more or expect them to say ‘How high’ every time I ask them to jump. You have to watch what you say in case you out your friend’s indiscretions by mistake in the presence of their SO’s guilty.

If you manage to get your partner and your friends to get along, and better yet, to like each other, then you are definitely doing it right! Feel free to share how you managed to do this 🙂

ION I really need to share these two very awesome jams that I cannot stop listening to today.

And this banging joint by Taio Cruz. Love this dude’s music, but someone needs to tell him there are other colours in the spectrum, not just black :p

Stay toasty,

TGIFridays!!!

Thank God It’s Friday!!!

Today I Am Feeling

cold, like it is really freezing! Wish I could wear my gloves as socks! Ironically I was feeling this way last Friday. I am also feeling nonchalant, easy going..

My Funky Friday Theme Song Is

I hope

what I am afraid to hope for comes to pass.

Have A Fantastic Friday 🙂

1st of the month

The month of craziness is upon us, looking forward to fun times ahead 🙂

June Highlights

I  got to do things out of the ordinary this month, went to new places and it was definitely a very nice change.

I went to Crowne Plaza for the first time with my girls one random evening. It was a nice classy place, which is actually not too badly priced. Cocktails are the usual price of between 500 – 750 Kshs, Beers go for Kshs 250, and food ranges between Kshs 500 – 1500 depending on what meal you are having. They also give you complementary nuts and crisps 🙂

Chicken Wings

Mixed platter of sorts with chicken tikka skewers, fish fingers and samosas

I am definitely going back there some time soon 🙂

This past weekend I finally got a whiff of that fresh country air, my friends and I went to a country house in the Rift Valley. It was amazing, fun and relaxing, but really cold. I am so not feeling this Kenyan winter, my bones are not strong enough. There was a sauna and a jacuzzi which was quit relaxing. I had great company though, lots of food and drinks, I really think this should become a monthly regiment 🙂

Blankets, hammocks and wine 🙂

Another highlight of my year was the Fahrenheit concert, it was beyond phenomenal, I think people are now tired of me going on and on about it!

Miss Karun – Camp Mullah

Shappaman – Camp Mullah

K-Cous – Camp Mullah

Blinky Bill – Just A Band

Cleo’s friend

Cleo 🙂

Yes, I was this close 🙂

The Teddy Bears, extremely good dancers

The gig was very well organised, with dome tents and spectacular set up. The performances were amazing as well, really looking forward to the next gig.

I got to spend time with my family and Skype those abroad, I rarely get to Skype, think Iv done it only two other times prior lol but it was nice getting to chat with them and to see them.

I finally saw a silver lining in the clouds, and I really hope all this materialises.

I am an auntie again 🙂

June Downsides

I twisted my ankle and my calf is messed up, not a good time for my legs 😦

There were some people I could rely on, now not so much anymore.

Too many deaths, the gream ripper needs to take a break.

The frustration really escalated to phenomenal levels, but somehow I found a way to get through it by God’s grace.

June Discoveries

Kenya is such a beautiful country 🙂

This world is too small, it has reduced to 2 degrees of separation.

I may need to change my mind set, but right now I am too afraid, but we will see how it goes.

What I Look Forward To In July

The numerous birthday parties for the many July babies.

Change.

How was June for you? What do you look forward to in July?
