Focus!

So what is focus?
By definition
fo·cus
ˈfōkəs/Submit
noun
1.the center of interest or activity.

2.the state or quality of having or producing clear visual definition.

1.(of a person or their eyes) adapt to the prevailing level of light and become able to see clearly.

2. pay particular attention to.

So my question to myself when 2017 started is what is my focus for the year? and where will I be focusing – Yes I may have some goals-a few but what will I be focusing on.
Well for me to answer this question I had to write down all my goals and then break them into monthly goals and then weekly goals so that I could see clearly what I wanted to do and if indeed fitted into the overall goal.

Why was this important for me to break down every thing down to the week? well for me to plan and then be able to focus to really be CLEAR on what that week is all about – day-to-day and what I will be able to achieve, accomplish.

So the question I want to ask you – What are you focusing on now and why?

I can’t wait to read from you and hear what your focus is!

This is my DARE Year 2017

Happy New Year 2017.

I have been away for the whole of last year. I had a shift. A major shift that made me learn and grow into a new normal. My Mum suffered a stroke early in 2016, and I had to start a new way of living. I had to go through so many emotions and stages.

In the beginning it was getting through the High Dependency Unit, and then when she passed that, it was getting through the ward. Soon she was given the go ahead to return home,and that started a new journey. I have been privileged to be staying home with Mum, and for the last few months we have moved through each phase, each challenge and now we are at a place of new growth.

For me to be able to be where I am, I have had to come through some difficult places on the journey; which way to turn left, right or to keep on going straight on. This has required wisdom, it has required understanding, it has required humility, and most importantly it has required me to reach out to those who are in a position higher than I am, in terms of lessons, experience and most importantly Spiritually.  There is a time in life I believe that one needs to re-examine their results, and question why ? why have I been here for one year, two years three years? why I am not where I know I should be? What is holding me back? Who is holding me back? and finally why????

Well, last year was that year to answer all these questions!  I am so happy that I have gone through what I have. I am stronger, more confident, more alive and more determined.

I am ready to live, I am ready to learn, I am ready to grow and I am determined not do this alone!

I hope you are ready, ready to DARE!

2017, this is my year to DARE and to SOAR. Because I am for Signs and Wonders!

True colors

Happy New Week!

The month is flying, well at least that is how I feel. I hope you all had a great Valentines day.  The day was awesome, I spent most of the time working, but the thing that just got me; was it rained.

I know for most of you, it is winter, for us here in Nairobi it has been a hot summer, with no rain, dry and dusty. So when the rain came down on Valentines day for me it was a sign. That the big guy upstairs has my back, not just mine but the whole country! What better way to show some love?

Today I wanted to “talk” about being true to self, I managed to watch my favorite movie – The matrix.

Honestly I love that movie, and one of the things I love is Neo learning himself. He learns he can be faster than what he thought he was, he learns that he made choices that most probably the Architect did not think he would do. He learns that to beat Smith – he needs to give up himself at that moment in order to get the peace that the human race need. There are like a billion things in the Matrix that I need to keep learning and reminding myself to do. The best one is the words written in the Oracles kitchen Know thy self.

This means to me – My true colors. Being true to me, in spite of what the world or the society would like me to believe is me. This process is not an easy one. I am learning that somethings that I thought were true to me, I picked them up because my circle of influence made them seem important.

Am also learning what I love or believe in, that resonates with me, does not resonate with others, and that’s just fine. Those things that resonate with me, make me unique, make me tick, they make me well Me.

My challenge right now is to show my true colors to the rest of the world. I must admit I have been hiding , mostly I guess out of fear, of what? I cannot even say.  Maybe am too loud, maybe am too colorful, or maybe am just too passionate about what I do…… so many maybe’s. But time has come for me to shine, to be my true self to show my true colors to the world, those who can’t handle me well they can just keep moving on.

So here is to my true colors and to yours too, let’s make sure that 2015, knows that we are here,  that we make sure that we light up the world up with our wit, our colors, our music, our novels, our lives!

Let Babyface and Phil Collins give you the picture with this song! and Be true to you, Show your true colors, because you are beautiful.
