2016 Year Review

2016 has been quite a year for everyone.
I graduated from Cooperative University with a Diploma in Public Relations and I feel like it’s the only course I needed to do regardless Journalism being my passion.

I celebrated my first year blog’s anniversary on 10th July 2016, having 52 posts and 4,440 views and 1,662 visitors. It’s not been easy to cope up with my blog and other things and to get people to view. Alot of people ignore my blog’s link but I keep on pushing. For those who’ve been real since day one, I appreciate the love and support. Come 2017 I’ll be posting regularly and having great content as well.

In the fashion industry at large, Evelyn Njambi  managed to make it to the top five in the contest for Miss World, she’s put Kenya on the world map and we’re totally proud of her.

Socially, Kenyans have suffered from drought and floods, building collapsing because of weak foundation. This is mainly because of the huge gap between the rich and the poor. The poor have been exploited by the rich who construct houses with weak foundations and once the building collapses, they’re nowhere to be found.
The common ‘Mwananchi’ has been robbed and our rights are no longer upheld. Billions are stolen day in day out and no action is ever taken. The rich are getting richer and the poor dominate in poverty. It’s so sad how these things happen and nobody cares to make a move or the right turn.
The common ‘Mwananchi’ has no say in a lot of happenings in the country but all we do is pray for a better nation and a better 2017.

Politically, Kenyans have been scattered all over trying to figure out who’s the best leader. In the political world, there’s no good leader, in one way or the other, they’ll still mess up. But it’s good to compare and contrast. That however, doesn’t give you a good leader either, it just shows you who’s less evil than the other.
But Kenyans never listen anyway.  They’ll complain of bad leadership but when it comes to voting, they’ll not cast a vote to determine their leaders.

Kenyans are easily influenced by different political ideologies and don’t take time to understand them but rather start rioting and fighting each other. We’re better than that. We should be united and live in peace, love and harmony. Let’s not allow the greed of political leaders to affect our togetherness. Next year go out there and cast your honest vote and determine your leaders. DO NOT complain of bad leadership if you’re not planning to cast your vote.

2016 hasn’t been an easy journey for many but it has come to an end. What do you want to do better than what you did in 2016?
How many lives do you want to transform in 2017?

It’s the festive season, who have you shared with the little or much you have?

Have you made someone smile?

Have you made someone feel loved?

Have you made someone feel appreciated and worth living life?

Well maybe you haven’t, but next year transform lives and be a better you than who you were this year.

As from me, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2017.

22 Things All Writers Have to Deal With At Some Point Because Writing Is Hard

Novelty Revisions

1. Writing for free.

2. Being approached to write for free. (Too often.)

3. Writing in a very uncomfortable position while on a train/bus/plane/in a car.

4. Trying to write while your fur children/tiny humans are battling for your attention.

5. Falling asleep on your keyboard because you procrastinated again why do you always do this.

6. Wanting to agree to do another writing thing but oops you can’t create more hours in the day. Sad…

7. Accepting a writing gig because you want to buy a thing but can’t justify doing so otherwise.

8. Accepting a writing gig because you need to adult, even though you don’t want another writing gig.

9. Pitching something you don’t really want to write because you know it’ll circulate well.

10. Being able to quit a job you don’t like because you found a writing thing you do like — that pays.

FAITH

I highly relate💯

Subliminal

I had Faith once, but logic got in the way of that.

Now I have lost Faith, and all the good things that come with.

Remember all the times I said logic gives you all the answers,

I lied. Lucidity gave me a sagacity of self-preservation.

But self-preservation comes with a cost.

Self-preservation made a choice for me,

and I put Faith at arm’s length. For a moment I felt safe.

Turns out rationality has cost me the whole enchilada.

Lucidity has cost me Faith, Hope, Love and Happiness.

Shrewdness for some time; Yes, stopped me from making some

bad verdicts, but this time Logic is costing me everything.

Logic kept me sane, from making the “measured” wrong choices

I scrupulously assumed Logic was the way to go, would keep me

in an orthodox state and that I wouldn’t have qualms.

This time, Remorse is knocking on my medulla

maybe…

Just how long should you wait!

Realest thing I’ve read today!

Subliminal

We are now in that time of the year where you wake up at 6am
in the morning, you pull up your bedroom curtain and the rays
of the sun hit your face; you know that time of the year where
mornings come quicker and the night too; it is 6pm and the moon
is already informing you to retire from the days work.

This morning I heard something interesting on the radio, they
were talking about how long one should one be in a dating
relationship before getting to the real thing; like
getting serious and all that. One thing that got me though,
was a woman who said she would need at-least 5 years or more
to be able to learn about all the shit about this guy;
Now that is shit! wtf!! 5 years? I mean are you going through
high or elementary school!!

As it turns…

SINS OF THE WHISTLE BLOWER

Amazing piece!

angagafelix23

With the blood that is spilled, the stones that are thrown, the business that make losses, the tears that are shed makes me weak,cautious and afraid
Before my time comes let me show you what we have made of the future

I walk home from a day of losses and before me they stood
You could tell from their face and poses that the argument got heated up as one moved back, picked up a stone while other held a thick branch ready to unleash his wrath

I observed for a second then the name calling started, one threw the stone and missed another ran after him with the cane to strike him but I couldn’t let it happen
I bought two lollipops and suddenly they are friends again
As they stand 40 inches tall
But before this I wonder what could transpire for them to know that a stone…

War

👌👌

Cristian Mihai

“The one perfectly divine thing, the one glimpse of God’s paradise given on earth, is to fight a losing battle – and not lose it.”

Life is a war.

You have to fight to get what you want, you have to fight to become the person you want to be. You have to fight to put food on the table, to be fit, to accomplish goals, to take care of your body.

The hustle, as they say, never ends.

Of course, you might be inclined to use one of lfie’s many crutches: to have someone else take care of your needs, to dream of retirement, to dream of winning the lottery or reaching Heaven.

Those are lazy ways of thinking and going about life.

Here and now. That’s life. It’s not about tomorrow, for it has yet to come.

Life is what happens right here, right now. And life is…
