If I said I made it through the year because I didn’t snooze, would you doubt me?
I woke up almost every morning and hit the road, first a morning ritual; a 15 minutes run and a tummy trim workout (the tummy is still hanging on, smh) but I’m not about that life of giving up too soon. I tried to hit the gym for 2 weeks but my crazy schedule took away my hours, Zumba was my favorite part of the gym workout plan and still is. Have you ever had such a heavy schedule that even your girlfriends take offense when you can’t sneak a day for a hangout plan? You have an 8 to 5 job (definitely not what I’m doing right now, I love it!) that you really wasn’t so excited to wake up to and then very interesting classes that you can’t afford to skip from 5.30 to 8.30pm, there is just something about Daystar University that is irresistible. Sitting in class waiting on learning something new from what you want to pursue all your life, I so love that.
It’s been a great year! I know it’s so freaking cliché to write down new year resolutions but that’s just exactly what I did when 2016 began. First I said a very brief prayer but I asked God for so many things, he promised to deliver, we hit a fist bump and I got off my knees with a big smile. For sure most of these things we agreed on were dropped right at my doorstep. God has been exceedingly abundantly faithful which explains how grateful I am to have reached this day, the 29th day of December, 2341 hours.
I’m still up deep in thought, strategies left right and center. I rarely go to bed before midnight, but then again I have this sleeping disorder that cannot allow me to peacefully rest throughout the night. In a previous post, you all met my bed-mate, my phone has got lots of tasks to juggle for a whole certain random wee hour of the night – the sleeping disorder. (I’m working on finding out why I can’t go a whole night without losing sleep at some point, it sucks!!). Well, it’s different tonight, this is me trying to list down the kind of people to leave behind in 2016. I have given it too much thought, I have analyzed your life my dear reader, lol. I have analyzed the kind of relationships be it situationships, friendships.. I started this year. I obviously have thought about all the frustrations that brought tears to my eyes, as in the people who frustrated me. I have been disappointed a couple of times but I forgave and amnesia has refused to check in so if you disappointed me, I’m thinking about you right now. I’m thinking about the people I have lost in 2016, I am so angry at death, he or she robbed me off my grandfather, my aunties and just the other day my favorite uncle. So death, I am definitely leaving you in 2016, go away!!!!! And then back to thoughts of people who wronged me in 2016 but I just remembered that I forgave them. So who or what I’m I leaving here?!! on the verge of giving up, can’t figure this out. Perhaps life is such a beautiful thing that there is no point of holding grudges and shutting people out but instead gather the good and count the blessings. What made you happy? What did you achieve? Who did you wrong and what if you didn’t apologize? Simply positive thoughts. Think on these things people.
Just as I’m about to sign out, my eyes are so heavy, dry lips – I need to grab a soda from the crates in the kitchen store – festive season things! But just before I tip toe to the kitchen, my little phone vibrates and startles half of my people who had dozed off on the sofas; hahahaha and then this lady goes like; “sasa mrembo, nitakua around kesho, utakam?” End end of this story. I am leaving her behind, who is mrembo?! If you have ever addressed me as mrembo in the past 11 months, we are done. Baki 2016!! Some of these uncourteous words cannot accompany your beautiful resolutions, drop them!
And now there is no more soda left, I laughed so hard at finally getting a person to drop in 2016 after hours of brainstorming and eventually losing it. Just at that right time to disrupt the entire community and get them thirsty all of a sudden. Happy new year Warembo.
2017, Olaaaaa….I see you 🙂
