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.

Drinking: tea.

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.

Feeling: grateful.

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!
