I’m I the only who guilts over the awful amount of time I waste staring at a screen!?
It’s been a while since I wrote a new blog and I genuinely don’t even have a good reason just been off for a minute. Filling my time with a lot of unnecessary stuff.
It’s like in 2019 you blink it’s already the next day. You close your eyes for two minutes and wake up in June. I know a certain someone who can’t wait for June. People have been tweeting this “In Nairobi you snooze, you loose.” We all know this “time waits for no man.” I honestly feel like I could just sleep one night and will wake up at 25 by a five am alarm thinking I have to get to work.
I honestly want to go back to the days all I worried about was missing an episode of Penny Proud, Kim Possible and Winx. Life was easy. Problems were small. Those problem didn’t even bother us. No wonder the Bible teaches us to be like kids ; innocent and meek. But some of today’s kids is a story for another day.
The worst part is life is not going to get any easier. So you just need to adapt, be an adult and handle it. You need to keep in mind though that some days are better than others. It will seem like you are in the deepest pit at times but the light is there at the end of the tunnel. You just need to get the courage to get to the end of the tunnel.
If you come to think of it. If there were no challenges or hardships, there wouldn’t be happiness in some way. Getting through a hurdle gives a sense of happiness and one feels like they can take on the next challenge. If school wasn’t challenging, no one would be excited to graduate. If dating was easy, why would we celebrate engagements or weddings. If marriages were easy,why celebrate anniversaries.
See my point, beyond every hardship is a celebration of success. You graduate, we have a party, we are happy for a while, we forget and start stressing why you don’t have a job, you get a job, we celebrate again, we forget till you get a promotion, we celebrate again.
Okay, I think you see my point now. We need to be excited for the small wins. The ones we can’t post on Twitter or tell a friend cause its personal. You need to be okay with applauding yourself and not waiting for people to validate you.
Time is moving too fast to just be stuck behind screens and not appreciating people around us or life in it’s whole. If you can travel, do so, meet strangers. Make friends. Read books. Create playlists. Write books. Create art. Fail exams. Pass tests. Go out. Try out that new outfit. Go to that restaurant. Talk to that guy.
Life happens everyday. It fucks us over. It brings amazing people in our life. It takes away people we thought we need. The beauty of it is you can start a new each day.
Yes one day it will all be over and we will join the maker, but every other day we’ll live.
I think I should start saying happy new month already. March has gone by fast. My exams are here already. I bet every student dreads this time of the semester.
I’ll stop whining now. By the end of April exam pressure will be over. See, that’s just how things work. Today it’s this tomorrow the other.
Thanks for reading loves 🙂
