Self potrait

“My thoughts are stars I could not fathom into constellations” – John Green

“I write because I do not know what I think until I read what I say” – Flannery O’Connor

“To be nobody but yourself in a world that’s doing its best to  make  you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting.” – e.e cummins

“First, I am very fascinated by how everyone  loves each other, but nobody really likes each other ” – John green

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go, my dear, and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)..” – e.e cummings

DSC_0454_FotorHopefully it will stop raining so I can do get out of the house. Today I really wanted to blog but had nothing to say ha!, so I decided to try do a self-potrait.. you like?

I also binge read other blogs I like, and hadn’t had a chance to read recently. It’s so  refreshing for me to read other people’s perspective on things related to daily boring everyday life, and I also like getting inspired in terms of food, style, working out etc, some of my faves are delightfully tacky by Elizabeth, twenty seven by Michelle and Curious Natalia. I find this ladies blogs “from the heart”  and very unique and personal. It’s obviously very brave for people to share their lives with the wide world web (the good and bad) and I respect such content, despite my disagree-ability  or agree-ability. I honestly hope my blog will go into a similar direction, something someone can relate to, not just nice photos/clothes.

New years resolutions ?

I feel like the ultimate way to jinx myself is by making new years resolutions, but I will go ahead and make declarations instead (insert harry potter voice)…

– I declare to be bolder this year (my mind is filled with ideas it’s about to explode, but yet I shy away from exploring this ideas)

– I declare to be less afraid of failure (this is how we learn)

– I declare to appreciate my friends and family a little bit more than i’ve done in the past

– I declare to not live by comparison, but through expression of who I am (we are all more beautiful in and out than we think we are)

– I declare to smile a little bit more to strangers (I am that person who gives back a look of horror when a stranger smiles at me) – ode to my Nairobi up-bringing where sass was rather important lol

– And last but not least…..I declare to learn how to code (I have always wanted to since high school days – as a hobby)

– love purejackie-
