There is a sense of vulnerability that comes with blogging. One bears bits and pieces of themselves even when they are blogging on fashion, social events etc. How one writes their piece is a glimpse into their mind, their character, their world and to me that is a lot. Now imagine being appreciated for showing the world a glimpse of your soul? Isn’t that just frigging amazing?
For me blogging was an outlet for some if not all of my “demons”. Blogging opened me up to accept criticism and love in equal measure. It made me associate with people I had never met before. It made me wholesome and beholden to human interaction; from being an introvert to being ME. The internet I have discovered can be a great place….it has decided to appreciate female bloggers and guess who was nominated….yeiiiiii (dancing***). Some of the finest female bloggers came up with the “sisterhood of the bloggers award” where once nominated you also get to recommend amazing female bloggers and appreciate them as well.
So I am to answer some questions to help y’all figure me out some more (how can you not know me by now though? ).Hehe 🙂 😉
1. If you could be an animal what would you be and why?
Wait aren’t we animals already? Hehe…my biology classified me as a mammal…were they wrong all along?? LOL…anyway if I was to be an animal I would want to be a leopard…it is beautiful, fast, lithe, wild, free & strong. It shows a brashness of defiance as if it recognizes just how significant it is. I like that. I WANT TO BE THAT. :-p
2. What legacy would you like to leave behind?
If you know me personally you know I’m a loud girl. My laughter is explosive and my reactions sometimes are wild. However when it comes to legacy and matters close to me, I don’t like them being flamboyant and marked. I would want to leave a legacy discernible by inspiration I have inculcated in one person….if I could touch one person’s life and make them have confidence in in their amazingness, beauty and strength then I am satisfied with that. But then again, God has a plan for me…my legacy is in His plan so I await to see the marvels He has in store for me.
3. One thing I love about myself and why?
It’s been a few months of my virtuous train (i.e. saying one good thing to myself about myself). If you’ve been reading my blog you read on the things I love about myself. I love a lot about myself now…. However the one thing I have come to love MOST about myself is my smile…does that makes me vain? /o\
4. What would you like to change about yourself and why?
My body definitely; on occasion I feel like I should be a certain way and other days I know I am beautiful…Like I said it’s a journey I am taking with myself to appreciate me and the faults I have. Sometimes it’s better to see the positive than the negative right?
5. If you could fly for a day where would you go?
Sadly I have never been on a plane before, all I have done is admire their architecture in books, magazines, and on seeing them up close the few times I am on Lang’ata road, So for now my dream would just be to board one that is actually going somewhere, like Madagascar.* my dreams are valid** 🙂 🙂
6. If you could have a supernatural power what would it be?
For a second I thought of mind reading but I figure hearing other peoples thoughts would be freaky on a daily basis. If I was to have a super power, I would want to have the capability to fly. Call me superwoman…hehehhe….
7. Where would you like to live and why?
Hey there Greece, I’m coming to you *wink wink**
Culture, scenery and the beauty of the place….
8. If you could meet anyone who would it be?
Past– I would love to meet Wangechi at 14…to tell her and reassure her that no one has the capacity to hurt her other than herself. I would have been saved a lot of anguish and tears in my teens if I knew that little fact.
Present- I’m going to be a little shady and say Cookie, no not Taraji; I WANT to hang out with the character cookie!!!
Future– I’d like to meet my teenage daughter and just see if she turned out as great as I imagine her to be.
9. Why do I blog?
Lately I’ve been asking myself this question. At first I started out so that I could have a way to exorcise my demons lightly putting it, but now I have grown to liking the experience of sharing something enlightening. Blogging to me is an adventure. It is a way to stir something in people, letting them know that some experience; however lonely it is to go through them; they actually aren’t alone. But then again not all my posts will be moving, some will be outright bizarre. I’m trying out a variety of things…who knows what I will land upon and like.
10. Would you consider yourself happy?
Happiness is a state of mind…if you believe you are pleased you will exude happiness. If you believe you are miserable and brokenhearted you will be sad and you will hurt…
Your mind is your most powerful weapon, both against yourself and against others.
My nominees are these outstanding ladies who have found ways of breathing life into words. They use words to uplift, encourage, bring laughter and just being incredible in general… Check them out…
And without further ado….****drum-rolls*******
