29. Happy Birth Day. Things I have learned.

29. Happy Birthday to me. Today, 11/7/2021, I am in day one of 29 years on this grand universe. The greatest teaching that got triggered on 10/7/2021 is that if there is a person sleeping on me, is ME. Before 28, I never knew the potential that was dormant within my universal being. I thought of myself as unworthy, undeserving, and always thought knowing my worth was greed. Constantly, ...

There is no shame in Abuse

Children Survivors of Domestic Abuse

We sat almost in a circle, six women from different backgrounds, regions, and families. We felt like we belonged. Together, in each other, we found a purpose. We had a vision. We had a shared trauma. Every one of us had experienced parental trauma. Each one of us interpreted it differently. In that circle, we would talk about our stories and determine what we would abandon and the things we ...

She fits inside these words

WCW- Celine Njoki

Celine Njoki, a woman who made me resonate with the words written by R.H.Sin in his book, “She fits inside these words.” The first time Celine wrote to me her story privately on Bobodiaries, I was shaken. It was one of those stories that you read and by the time you are on the third paragraph, you are hoping it will be different. You look forward to the next paragraph ...

Welcome to my Diary.

I said my goodbyes on Facebook last week. Why? You might be curious. I was accepted for a programming course in Moringa. The program will be running for six months meaning I am not resuming Facebook until December after graduation. How has the program been? Honestly, it has shaken me from my comfort zone and pushed me towards being focused and determined. Was it mandatory that I leave Facebook? ...

Every day is Mother’s Day.

I am a little too late to the party, but they say, better late than never. I am the best at showing up late. However, being a better time-keeper was my resolution this year, but the universe did not think that was wise. COVID-19 just told me to project my desires probably next year because we are quarantined. What am I late for? Mother's Day. However, mine is different. My mother ...

Yes, I have been gang raped three times

Each person has a story worth sharing. When I posted about a worthy story, I didn’t think I would get more than I had bargained.

She left me and a brother who comes ...
