Wow

Wow.

It would be dishonest of me if I did not write about my feelings about my previous post. I have never had such an overwhelming response in terms of likes and shares. Ever. So that threw me off-balance, and I really didn’t know how to go about it the next time.

I feared that I would write something that wasn’t as ‘inspiring’ as that one, and I would disappoint people. I even consulted with an expert in the field.

No ID No Transaction

It was raining heavily this evening, and I needed to dash out to get something from the shop. I knew I wanted to make an Mpesa withdrawal, but I figured that I didn’t really have to have my ID, because, well, I have withdrawn from that particular shop many times.  

When I got there, I requested to withdraw a certain amount. He agreed. He asked whether I had my ID, I said I’d forgotten it in the rush to get out of the house. He said that he couldn’t let me withdraw because I didn’t have my ID and that he’d already had his account blocked for a month for allowing that to happen with someone else.

Tell Me No

Tell Me No

Gel Nail Polish. The new thing in town, way better than regular nail polish. There’s a way it sets and serves the wearer for a good, long time without chipping or fading. The first time I got this done on me, the nail expert said that it was better to start it off a little distance from the base. In my view, that made it look like my nails had stayed with the polish for a while. 🙁

Turn Off the Tap

Turn Off the Tap

Have you been in the process of washing dishes, and you begin to rinse, so you turn the tap on, rinse a few dishes, turn it off, and then continue washing using soap before needing to rinse again? Somehow, that process gets a bit mixed up, and sometimes, even when washing, we leave the tap on. So, as we wash, we are able to rinse one dish at a time.

Are you tired? Stay in your lane.

Let me tell you what exhausts us. It’s not what we do and then we get so physically tired. That can make us fatigued alright, but not as much as what I’m about to tell you.

What exhausts us is the thought of what we are yet to do. Imagine when you have a project at work or a term paper at school. You could stay up until 2 am and do all you can, but because you know the magnitude of what is yet to be done, you feel even worse. From the tiredness that you have from working, but even more, from what you know you are yet to do.

God is with You, yes He is.

When we go to the salon for a blow-dry, we often complain about pain or heat as the hairdresser works on our hair. Often, it is easy to think that there is malice in the process, especially if the hairdresser is a lady (yes, remember those stories told about lady hairdressers being jealous of our long locks, etc etc; anyway, that’s beside the point here). We’re generally usually not too happy during those moments.
