How are you, really? (Guest Post)

Hi, I’m Rachel. Welcome to my spontaneous talk (read) session. First of all, how are you? How are you doing and how are things going? Pretend there is a poll and you had the option of choosing either “great” or “hanging in there.” If you’re doing great, I hope you continue doing great and if […]

5 Things You Can Do in the Wait

Some few weeks ago, in the AM hours, I was up and struggling to find sleep. What better way to spend my time than to go on social media to do… well, I don’t know, check updates? I was only going to be a few minutes, but I ended up going through a lot of […]

Lessons From a Crying Baby

I have a three year-old niece who I’ve gotten so close to the past few months. She is the cutest, sweetest little darling. We usually sleep in the same room, and she wakes up every morning with a sleepy “good morning” before she goes into the kitchen, asking for some tea. Today, I was doing […]

My Struggle with Depression

Last year, I hit a low. It all started with a “we regret to inform you” email that crushed me. You know those opportunities you apply for and in your heart, you convince yourself you got it… I didn’t get any of them. So I didn’t take it very well. I spent my days in […]

Life Currently (February 2020)

A happy new year to you! (Is it too late? Pffft there are no rules to this, receive my new year greeting with glee please). I’m hoping 2020 has started with a great big bang. How are we doing with the resolutions? Kapena that’s an area we shouldn’t even talk about? Tiyamba za serious later? […]

Correction

I’ll make this as brief as I can, hoping it doesn’t sound preachy. This is all drawn from my own experience, and I thought it might help some Christian out there. OK, here goes: I was born and raised in the Message of the Hour. I have ever talked about how the devil convinced me […]

Your Mental Health Matters Too (Guest Post)

Each time I’ve thought of sharing about this I’ve stopped myself. I’ve thought, “there are real problems out there than just having low self-esteem. Anthu akuvutika kunjaku”. I find that telling someone they shouldn’t be upset about something because there are other bigger things to be upset about, is a bit like telling someone not […]

Things I was Never Told About Therapy (Guest Post)

Hie. I’m Faith. Not that Faith. A different Faith. I don’t know if I should introduce myself now or just keep writing and trust that there’s going to be an intro of sorts at the end of this. Anyways. I was asked to write about something and honestly I never know what to say or […]

Getting Unstuck

Some days ago, I received news that crashed me. It was something I had worked hard towards, something I believed with all my heart, and it all ended in one rejection letter. It was painful. Imagine my horror when I decided to share this bad news to a friend, and they kicked me whilst I […]

Withered Roses

So the past week has been another tough week for me. I was ill and didn’t leave the house for a couple of days (come to think of it, all my recent posts have been about sickness. I promise my life is much more than the illnesses that attack me *smiles shyly*). Anyway. I went […]
