Hello from the year 2023!!
I hear that it is October 2022 where you are! Are you well? Is the adulting cycle more lenient this time of year? I can assure you that 2023 is sunny and bright. You are who you say you are. You`re killing it!
Let`s dive into my September update:
Making: time to host events and author interviews. I was in conversation with Ibua`s author, Michelle Ivy Alwedo at the launch of her poetry collection, Still Blossoming. I hosted the September Edition of Story Mic. I also shared a platform with amazing women: Patricia Kahilll, Samantha Vazhure and Lena Mirembe Pira during the Afrobloggers Meet-up on Zoom whose theme was the post-publication journey of an author.
Eating: muesli, bananas, pineapples, apples and yoghurt.
Drinking: tea with mujaja aka holy basil/African basil, a herbal tea spice with a sweet aroma. It is said to be medicinal in nature.
Reading: The Nothing Man by Catherine Ryan Howard and A General Theory of Oblivion by Jose Eduardo Agualusa.
Listening: to The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid And Woman Evolve by Sarah Jakes Roberts on Scribd. (As of this update, I am yet to finish both books.) Use my Scribd link to listen to both books and more free for 30 days.
Wanting: money and travel. With the hardships of 2022, I need to chop money in the last quarter.
Wasting: no time on things that don`t bring me joy.
Wishing: for a restful October filled with money-making opportunities.
Wondering: about life.
Hoping: for an October full of good news.
Marvelling: at the energy, we have as humans to get up each day no matter how hard yesterday was. What are we high on? I found a tweet that shares my sentiments.
Smelling: sweet fragrances of Dark Velvet and Rose Gold. I deeply love perfumes and sweet scents.
Wearing: my hair in dreadlocks. The current length makes styling them so much easier.
Following: writers. The best thing I have done in a long time.
Noticing: how God has been showing up for me in moments when I wanted to give up.
Knowing: all things will fall into place and make sense.
Bookmarking: excerpts from the books I`m reading.
Song dedication: every song by Victoria Orenze. I failed to pick one. I`m obsessed with her!!
May you experience a shift and ease this October.
