Believe in Yourself

What Does It Take to Believe in Yourself?

The other day I was just having these thoughts around what we attach our self-worth to. That must’ve probably been after watching Being Mary Jane and coming across this quote, ‘net worth is not equal to self-worth.’ And though I can’t remember at what point it was used, it’s something we tend to generally throw…

Story, Life Lessons

Who’s Telling Your Story?

This week has been an interesting one, even though nothing spectacular happened. I however think I’ve learnt such a big lesson from someone who doesn’t even have the slightest idea that I actually learnt something from them.

Guest Post: Never Taught in Class.

Post by Samuel Muthomi a.k.a Dj Somi. When Kawiria asked me to be a guest writer, I was gobsmacked because I’m a big fan of Kawi’Snippets (Stupendous Tidbits).  Her blog has been an inspiration to me and many others.

Meaghan Kausman, Curves

Curves and All.

I read this article on Bev’s blog. Like she had advised, I clicked on the original story, and I was touched by what I read. That’s what informed my post today. In our society, size is a weighty matter. See what I did there. But it is, for everyone really, regardless of your size. “You’ve…

You’ve Got To Start Somewhere.

The other day I bumped into one of my childhood friends and as we were catching up, we start talking about how it is living on our own. I’m slightly older than she is so I’d been out in the woods a little longer. This got me thinking of my journey, because I just didn’t…
