30 days down, 336 more to go. It is amazing how, just the other day it was all ‘New Year Resolutions’, new me, more gym, less carbs, more prayer, less clutter… and the list goes on and on. I have done resolutions, and didn’t quite feel like they worked for me, simply because changing the calendar does not necessarily mean my heart or attitude has changed. And so, against this backdrop, I made a decision to consciously live in the present, to make the most of every opportunity, to hog for opportunities for grace and to show up in the lives of the people that matter. Here’s the 6th installment of the Taking Stock series. You can check out the first one here and see where it all started 🙂
Making: the best of my coaching/personal development classes. This must be one of January’s most amazing gifts for myself.
Cooking: Ugali Cake. Who knew dusting ugali pieces dusted with flour, rolled in eggs, coated with breadcrumbs and deep fried could be so yummm? I should share that recipe sometime soon, Goes amazingly well with a cuppa tea 🙂
Drinking: Lots of water. Seems green tea takes some getting used to…
Reading: He-motions by Bishop Jakes.
Wanting: To live my God-given purpose, and a relationship with God. My heart aches for this.
Wasting: No cash. Hello budget tools, spreadsheets and percentages 🙂
Enjoying: Creating a weekly planner. Helps put so many things in perspective as well as figure out the energy sapping activities from my everyday activities.
Loving: My nuclear energy plant boy 🙂 Fourgoingonfourteen, and too witty.
Marveling: At how, some of the hardest seasons molded me in the best way possible. beauty for ashes.
Smelling: nothing really. I’d want to be smelling roses right about now…
Wearing: a hoodie.
Knowing: The truth that ‘bila Yesu ni vanity’. Plus the fact that we do not need to be looking for love in the wrong places.
Bookmarking: blogs on Postpartum Depression. The online community consists of resilient mommas and papas, who have beaten the odds to transcend this condition.
Giggling: at the ‘microscocope’ bit in this Bull’s Eye Clip 😀
Thinking: about all the amazing people who have impacted my life, from as far back as high school. It is amazing to have friendships that transcend seasons and life stages.
I want to be here so bad… freedom, exhilaration, life. Peace.
