What a day!
What a stressful day it's been! I arrived late to work, panting like shit! after climbing those agonising stairs.
But I always have the notion that whatever the circumstances everything finally turns out for the best as long as you believe.....

My Love

Did I ever mention how mesmerised am by our coastal beach?
Am in love with beaches....They are just so beautiful, so mysterious and romantic....
But again the best & most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor touched ....
but are felt in the heart...

True or False

Love is strong Yet delicate.. It can be broken
o trully Love is to understand this

be in Love is to respect this

My Life........

Three passions have governed my life
The longing for Love, the search for knowledge
and unbearable pity for the suffering of Humankind

Love brings ecstasy & relieves loneliness
In the union of Love I have seen
In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
Of heavens that saints & poets have imagined...

With equal passion I have sought knowledge
I have wished to understand the hearts of people
I have wished to know why stars shine....

Love & Knowledge led upwards to heavens
But always pity brought me back to earth
Cries of pain reverberated in my heart

Of children in famine, of victims tortured

And of old people left helpless......

I long to alleviate the evil But I cannot and I too suffer
This has been my life; I find it worthy living...

Failure is never the end........

Most things break, Including hearts! The lessons of life ammount not to wisdom but to scar tissue & awaken us.......
ove the moment, flowers grow out of dark moments....
Therefore each moment is vital..
It affects the whole life...
Life is a succession of such moments and to live each is to succeed....

Winston Churchill once said" Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm"

Growing up

Yesterday Nancy my bestfriend, I met her way back in college called with some, I can call them 'Terrific' news of her engagement to her long time other significant. I could only manage a simple wow! She left me thinking; how fast were we growing! Only recently we were 'care-free students' and now old enough to get to make such drastic Life changing desicions? She must have been surprised when I asked "Are you sure?" But even with my fears she still got my blessings.

I had always believed college relationships were a waste of time, but my friend's engagement got me by surprise, I was left thinking If I could have gotten serious even on one occasion would be now spotting a BIG smile on my face and a tiny beautiful diamond ring on my finger? But I then guessed It was'nt meant to happen that way anyway.....
They say 'You cannot find true Love where it does NOT truly exist and can not hide it where it truly exists....

College life was the real bomb, apart from the boring lessons there was nothing to worry about! How different it's from the life we get after college.....
Last week has been really hectic for me, I have been searching for an apartment and Its been hard work. I had no Idea it was that hard.....

One of the things I love is nature...No matter how bad our economy is ...Kenya still remains in many aspects stunning to me. Did you guess the name of this pretty bird....Its the Lamu King Fisher...

Love at it's best
when you Love someone and you love them with your heart. It never disappears when you're apart.
And when you love someone and you have done all you can do, You set them free....
And if that Love was true.....when you love someone sincerely it will all come to you.....

Love we must learn never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness & errors & betrayals....
It dies of illiness & wounds...
It dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings...........

Did you ever know that, When we love & show kindness towards others, It not only makes others feel loved & cared for but it also helps us to develop inner happiness & peace......

Thou' Shall Forgive!

Forgiveness is freeing up & putting to better use the energy once consumed by holding grudges, harbouring recentments and nursing unhealed wounds. Its rediscovering the strenghts we always had & relocating our limitless capacity to understand & accept other people & ourselves.

When we let go off hard feelings, we start living the life God intended us to live, its most important if you want to move and leave the past for the past. As we give the gift of forgiveness we ourselves are forgiven.
Did you know that if you hate someone you're disliking part of yourself? An old proverb advices us that '' you will keep your friends if forgive them but will lose your friends if you keep talking about what they did you wrong''
Even though I really, detest liars or sadists, I have come to learn that no matter how good a friend is they are going to hurt you once in a while and we must learn to forgive them for that.
