Starve your fears

              Fear is the enemy of all our dreams and hopes.It is a virus that eats into our systems leaving messed up confidence levels.Fear is dramatically powerful and capable of ruining our lives.I know these questions sound familiar to us all..what if it does not work? what if he does not like me? what if i fail? what if I'm rejected?
           Well,that was my dilemma before starting this blog.Those little evil voices in my head telling me that I am not good enough to do a proper write-up.I literally felt like i would never fit in anywhere.It is hard to tell yourself to rise up when all odds are against you and when you feel defeated.
         When i was growing up,I had a lot of fear.My childhood basically involved television all day,all week which meant i had no social life outside school.We lived in a school where my dad was a teacher and i was apparently a student there too.It was located in the interior so after schools closed i was all alone given the fact that i am an only child.It was tough because i always wondered how i would fit in when i joined high school and eventually campus.Amazingly,i was no misfit but the fear was still haunting me because relating seemed quite difficult.I always felt the need to feel accepted and my fear was losing the few friends i had acquired over the years.
       I joined campus and reality hit me hard in my second year but let's just say i saw the light.I knew that i cannot continue to live in fear of the unknown and fear of rejection.The more i fed these fears,the more i starved my faith and now i fully comprehend that i can do anything through Christ who gives me strength.
     You may feel like you are too afraid to start or even move forward from where you are but i tell you today that those voices in your head can be conquered by a little faith.Don't feel the pressure to be someone you are not and certainly be not afraid of man who has the same breath as you do.Everyday reassure yourself that you are beautiful,wonderful and on this earth with a purpose.Fear comes from the devil who just wants to see you bitten and defeated but remember that your father in heaven loves you and he wants you to take on this world with all the confidence.He is your number one cheer leader.
   We have so many dreams in our hearts;stories unwritten,love untold,songs unheard,business ideas untapped and so much more.Living in a world where judgement easily befalls on us,we often bury away everything we had set out to do.The only opinion that will ever matter is that of God so fear is weakened by all means and if the world laughs at your ideas,do not be dismayed because God would be so proud of you having faced your fears.
     Girls,strut this world like it is your runway and look in the mirror and encourage your beautiful self.Guys,take a bible and know that all the promises in there are for you to claim and so you need not be afraid.Fear is just 'false evidence appearing real.'Once you realize that you are an awesome human being with a potential superpower called faith waiting for you to tap into then you my dear will take on the world with your head held high.
Keep smiling.You matter.

What I'm Learning From Quitting Social Media

I was lying on my bed one night feeling very fatigued. My head was aching, my back was in pain and my eyes were tired. I had spent all day on Instagram and Facebook and looking out for notifications from WhatsApp. Three weeks before this day, Someone had sent me my picture that had been posted on a famous Facebook group so I was curious to read the comments and to know why my picture was there (😂aki I was excited lol...cheap thrills). 
          The group membership is closed, so I sent a request to join and unknown to me that was the beginning of very late nights and tired mornings. I did find my picture but it was just someone who wanted to know where they could get their hair done like mine (😂which is literally just visitingthe barber). The Facebook group is an arena for all sorts of gossip and stories with a whooping 300,000 membership count (I know you've already filled the blanks😝). I remember reading the stories there and getting shocked to my stomach because t…

No to the return of The Toxic Ex-lover!

Pick up lines💭 Sigh! Boy oh boy!😃  I'm I the only one who receives very corny pick up lines? Like super corny I get hungry just thinking about it (see what I did there?😉) Once, a guy told me he thought I was so pretty I could make water come out of fossils👷. My oh wamae! Who even says that? 😒Can fossils and pretty co-exist in the same sentence, get married and live happily ever after? 💑❔The last time I heard about fossils was in History class when I was cramming that topic of Zinjanthropus and homo rhodensiensis (I'm not even sure that is academically correct but it makes me look like I earned that A in History KCSE👀...Heey Mr.Maido👋👋). Then someone reminds me of that horror experience through a pick up line? 😠There's another breed of homo sapiens sapiens(sorry I just had to do that😂😃) that somehow forgets most of the alphabets so their typical pick up line looks something like this (good luck decoding it)...''U R xo Dem kyute Jry.

Oops! I'm Too messed up!

Dear Abba, My Faithful God;

You said, "Go and sin no more!" Though my eyes could not meet Yours because of the shame that crippled me🙍. I started running the third time the cock crowed in denial of you yet You looked at me and said I was fit to be the rock upon which you would build your church😧. You threw a party just for me though I squandered everything😣. Swallowed by the sea to flee from You Yet you still wanted me to be your mouthpiece😲. You knew my history yet you still asked me for a drink from the well😭. Sold You for a little silver and a kiss yet even for me, you endured the cross😯. Killed a man to love his woman but you still looked at me and said I was a man after your own heart😧. How was it possible that losers like us would be the very people you chose to follow you and to spread your word?😕 I'd like to look in the mirror without hiding my eyes and I'd like to see what you see and why you think I am qualified? 🙇Why do fiery branches speak my nam…
