My birth month is here!!
The first nine months of the year were a whirlwind. I was exhausted, fatigued and burnt out. But I still showed up for work, family, friends and myself. Things changed in October. I started feeling settled, an inner peace took over. The chaos on the inside halted. I feel like myself again after nine months of being at war.
November is my favourite month of the year for the obvious reasons-birth month. I am thrilled to be celebrating a new age during what has been the toughest year of my life.
Let`s dive into my October update:
Making: salads and having them for dinner because I have quality sleep. I visited my mum and we spent the day sprawled across her bed and giving life updates.
Eating: muesli, bananas and yoghurt.
Reading: Tropical Fish (Stories out of Entebbe) by Doreen Baingana and Uganda: An Indian Colony 1897-1972 by Samwiri Lwanga Lunyiigo. I read only books authored by Ugandans in October to celebrate Uganda at 60!!
Wanting: money and travel.
Wasting: no time on things that don`t bring me joy.
Wishing: for a fancy November full of celebration.
Wondering: about my upcoming birthday.
Hoping: for a November full of good news.
Marvelling: at how much work can be done when one puts their mind to it.
Smelling: sweet fragrances of Dark Velvet and Rose Gold.
Wearing: my hair in dreadlocks.
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: God Can by Victoria Orenze. This song has carried me through October.😭😭
May November come with a quickening and a refreshing.
Cheers to new beginnings.
Happy New month!
