Week 9: Happy Belated Anniversary

Hello my lovely guys&dolls, firstly I would like to apologise to my readers for being MIA for the last two weeks and not really putting my heart and soul into my blogs. So many things have happened in my life that I can not share with you my readers but do not despair as God is looking after me.

Embracing the afro in 2014

Anyway back to today's post, my partner and I celebrated 6 years on sunday 19th and let me tell you it has been the best 6 years of my life and I cant wait to see what God has got planned for us for our future. Most of you know our story but if not check it out here, I can not believe how far we have come because we still treat each other and feel like we still in our honeymoon phase which is a wonderful feeling.

Cambride, UK
Before I met my partner I had dated some guys who made me feel bad about my self and I didnt appreciate myself enough, it took a while before I was comfortable in my own skin. I am so grateful that I had a chance to kiss a few frogs before I found my partner because I appreciate my partner more. I think he came into my life at the right time not too late or too early just at the right time.

I am blessed to have what I have and to be where I am right now in my life, I am so excited about the next phase Marriage...Kids...etc and I pray I will get to experience this with my partner who has brought so much into my life and I am eternally grateful.

Do not get me wrong not everyday is perfect but its what we do about it and how hard we fight to get together that makes all the difference in the world. My advice to anyone is pray for you,your family/partner then your relationship. Always get God's opinion on this in your life, on sunday when we were at church the priest mentioned in the semmon that we all need "salt" in our lives to give us "flavour" and "tasteful" and God is the right kind of salt. This word stayed with me and my partner so much that  we were able to reflect on this for our relationship and I am happy we started our anniversary with a visit to the good lord's house.

we spent the rest of the beautiful day walking around cambridge then dined at a Brazilian resturant to sit, eat, drink and reflect on where we've come from and plan where we going.

I finished the day off by inviting Bruno mars to my eyes and replayed "Treasure".

Thank you for reading my post, see youin my next one.

Week 8: Moving on....and back!!!


So have moved back home with my parents, it's certainly nice but it's weird as well because it feels like once you leave you can not come back unless visiting. I feel like I am on holiday every time I am back near.

It's less than 20 days since we started 2014 and you wouldn't believe how much has changed and happened in my life. It's scary to think it's less than a month and I have experienced this much, how am I gonna cope with the rest of the 11 months The Lord has in store for me? Then I reminded myself  on one of the beautiful songs we sing at my church, me and my sis used to sing this to our faces it was fun (aaah good times).

"Trust and obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey"

If someone was to ask my guide for this year, I would direct them to the line above. I don't think I would be where I am right now if I did not trust in The Lord. I got through so many things in my life but I never fear because I know The Lord wouldn't give me anything I couldn't handle, no evil cast against me shall prosper.

Looking back.... so much I enjoyed and wouldn't change for the world

Looking forward... I can not wait to see what God has in store for me

That's all I wanted to share with you guys, till my next post. Ciao.

Week 8: when what you thought isn't actually

In this post I aim to be as cryptic as I can possibly be. I just experienced a life changing event and I will not try and blame anybody because I really should have known better. My faults I take full responsibility and I have learnt my lesson and apologise to those either directly or indirectly affected.

My disappointment and hurt arises from what I thought was which actually isn't or should I say wasn't. You come to a point in life where you think yes I have mastered this part of daily life and it turns now that what you have in front of you is the version of life that your prefer not what is actually there. You would have spent years learning and mastering things in life only to find out you actually haven't mastered nothing. 

So how am I doing so far in being cryptic!!!!

What I feel and what I have learnt are so invaluable to me now that I shan't be making that mistake or assumption ever again not in a million years. My errors in judgment have led me to this point which upon reflection has both good and bad outcomes but at this point I feel the bad outcome might just outshine the good outcome but I will not be detered and I shan't give up on trying, the important thing here is lesson learnt. 

Word of advice and warning, you were born alone even triplets come out one at a time so remember you only have one you.

Week 7: working together for together

Hello my lovelies? So today I wanted to share with you something that both equally annoys me and makes me laugh.

Since the day we met I have always been the planner and he has always been the last minute kinda man. I am one of those people who likes to plan way way in advance to the last detail because I don't like having to rush at the last minute and start regretting not planning in advance. Him on the other hand hates to plan in advance because their is always that chance that the plan might get cancelled and he hates it when his done all the work only to see them go to waste. I get that and I understand it totally but I keep saying to him that should really not stop us from living our lives and planning for the  future because there is also a chance that all the good plans done will come to flourish and will rejoice because we put in the effort. 

I will not lie and say last minute planning has never worked for me because it has but I will also admit on more than one occasion I have sat back and just wished I had started planning a little earlier. I remember one of my friends saying you guys are the last minute couple you probably end up planning your wedding the weekend before the wedding date and that is most likely true enough but I think because it's my wedding I would put in more time and effort. I remember in uni I had a friend who worked best when it was last minute and I was always amazed but I will say I preferred to plan way in advance all my assignments, my work schedule, my partying days and even days when I saw my man. That's me madam planner to the last underwear. 

Which one are you, planner or last minute?

Week 7: Back to the Gym ~ Exercise Routine

New year New You they tell me! Well I am thinking New Year Old me but improved, as I stated in my previous post (found HERE) I refuse to set myself up to fail by setting resolutions. I started going to the gym last year October and though I relapsed during the festive holidays I only knew I was not giving up the gym because this year is a year of reckoning and I need to stay at my best.

{Off-Sunday} You are not baptised!!!

Hello peeps happy Sunday! During the closing of the year service at my church I made a decision to change, this change is aimed towards going to church more often. I mentioned in one of my posts about how have become a part time church gower and that did not seat well with me nor my family and friends so that day I promised The Lord to try my hardest to go to church on Sunday and it didn't necessarily have to be New Apostolic but had to be a Christian church.

Last night I asked my housemate if I could go to church with her as her church is 2 minutes from the house we live in. She accepted and she was so happy I had finally decided to go to church with her. I went to a Catholic Church today for the first time in over 20 years, the last time I went I was a kid in zambia and the priest at the church refused me holy communion because he said I was not baptised in their church. I must say from the day on wards I refused to set foot into a Catholic Church I just remember being a kid and being so embarrassed after walking a long way from my seat to the front only to be denied the only communion. I was hurt to say the least, that was the last day I set for into a Catholic Church until today. 

I was nervous and anxious because old feelings started to resurface so I just prayed hard and concentrated on the word that was being preached today. I enjoyed the service I enjoyed being in the presence of The Lord and worshiping but I will say I missed my church but since we all pray to the same God my heart and are soul are equally nourished. 

After the service my friends and I went about town and had Sunday roast, good chat and shopping then home to reflect on the days happenings and being thankful for what The Lord has done for me in my life and what he continues to do for me daily.

Thanks for reading my post, I hope you enjoyed it please comment below.
