Taking Stock 50

Taking Stock 50

I existed in a sea of doubt in May! I sought the company of music and books. I had a tooth extraction that revealed that I have crazy teeth! These are teeth that stubbornly elude all extraction instruments for hours, sacrificing time at their altar. smh! I am excited about June and I am hoping for a great month.

Let`s dive into my May update:

Making: time to walk, rest, read, listen to music and Netflix. I recommend The Diplomat (The British Foreign Secretary is oozing sexy black man. I LOVE IT!!) and Queen Charlotte to all. The dialogue in Episode one of Queen Charlotte is why Shonda Rhymes is still in business!

Eating: mushroom soup. A cafe close to work place serves the most delicious mushroom soup. I eat it with salty bread from Carrefour. Heavenly pleasure!

Drinking: tea and water and minding my business.

Reading: The House of Rust by Khadija Abdalla Bajaber and Dust Child by Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai. Read both books on Scribd.

Listening: to music by Isaiah Katumwa-jazz has the capacity to drown out all the noise; Pompi`s Pole Pole and Wonderful Your Name by Worship Harvest.

Wanting: money, travel and more time. This will forever be consistent.

Wasting: time. I have given myself permission to waste time. Ever have those I don`t care moments? I had numerous this month blanketed in a sea of doubt.

Wishing: for ease and abundance.

Wondering: about adulting and the endless decision making process. I had to visit a dentistry after a tooth wreaked havoc in my mouth and body.

Hoping: for a life full of abundance, love, good health and positive vibes.

Marvelling: at how much work goes into achieving dreams.

Smelling: a new perfume! Oud scents have found their way to my heart. I want more.

Wearing: my hair in dreadlocks. I visited a government office to process some documents and the lady at the till complimented me : Has anyone ever told you that you look like LAURYN HILL? If I every doubted that I am gorgeous, I apologise to ME. The dreadlocks are not going anywhere anymore. We must keep Ms.Hill`s legacy intact!! LOL

Following: Lolwe and Isele Magazine. These are my sources of literary goodness right now.

Noticing: that transitions require patience with others and most importantly with yourself.

Knowing: that sunrises and sunsets have secrets they reveal each day.

Bookmarking: excerpts from the books I`m reading.

Feeling: grateful for the work I am doing in this season.

Song dedication: Weapon by Todd Dulaney.

May divine speed be your portion in June.

Happy new month!!

Cheers to new beginnings.
