Taking Stock has become a ritual for me on the blog and in my journal.It keeps me sane and grateful. I am able to rediscover things I did in my month and pat myself on the back for a job well done. Plus it is so much fun. So join me for my May and June edition;
Making: time to binge watch series, praying, indoor workouts ,walking and journaling.
Eating: millet porridge with muesli. This is my own concoction and it is worth my breakfast time.
Drinking: ginger tea and water because the thirst is a constant with the sun high up in the sky.
Reading: The Farming of Bones, Breath, Eyes, Memory; Brother, I’m Dying all by Edwidge Danticat, and The Woman Next Door by Yewande Omotoso.
Wanting: more time away from social media. I have been intentional about being away from social media especially on weekends.
Wasting: no time in supporting my friends and their hustles. This is an unpaid for position that has no stress and the work environment is rewarding.
Creating: content now that the new site is up.
Wishing: I could write the novels in my head and never stop until every idea is on paper.
Wondering: how one writes like Edwidge Danticat and Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi. Have you read any of their works?
Hoping: for salons to open and I get my hair done.
Marvelling: at Edwidge Danticat`s writing. She is a good story teller and I want to be like her.
Smelling: change in the world. Thanks to COVID-19 nothing will ever be the same again.
Wearing: jeans and hweza tees.
Following: Afro bloggers for the #WinterABC. Bloggers are outdoing themselves and I`m here for it.
Noting: how online friends can open doors for others. I reached out to a certain Uncle of bloggers for help and he gave it-free of charge.
Knowing: that God is still in control amidst the uncertain times. He is the only thing that is keeping me sane.
Bookmarking: quotes from the books I am reading.
Feeling: happy, sad, worried. My feelings have dwindled like the weather. Some days bring happiness, others sadness and many times worrying.
Today,I leave you with God is Always Good by Covenant Worship,a song I have had on replay all June. As you step into July,remember that God is always good.
Love on Love

Yeeessss ,God is always good , even when our feelings dwindle , I like to encourage myself to go through the( e) motions , they’re God given & as & when to look to him to keep the negatives a bay ..
I love the perspective you have on emotions-they are God given. That’s amazing.
Your stock taking sessions are always refreshing and they encourage to also self reflect. Thanks for always sharing!
