The hourglass keeps turning!

01 Feb

Time does fly!

Yes I’m older again!

No I haven’t figured out life completely yet.

Work is going on well.

Some goals I have achieved others I am yet to start working on them.

I have lost 5 kilos since January (Alex don’t slap me[On our very first meeting I know you had this idea I was a totally round character, shock on you] but I got to do this, a six-pack that doesn’t come in cans is all I want). Yes I joined a gym.

Yes there is a lady with a lovely behind in the gym, my motivation to attend 5 days workout sessions from the initial plan of 3 days sessions a week! Motivation!

I am more confident.

If I see a lady I like I approach her and the conversation ends with me asking for a phone number.

Rejection doesn’t hurt like it did before, I move on haraka upesi.

I am trying to de-clutter my life. Sometimes we hold onto baggage that holds us back for moving and seeing new paths/ opportunities/ possibilities.

I need to start dreaming big again. At some point I think I repressed this side of me. Big crazy ideas! Like my grandfather keeps telling me, ‘Think Big!’ I should.

Comfort zone seems to have given me a bear hug. Race of rats? Carrot on sticks? Maybe maybe not.

I see more work as a blessing, means I’ll earn my keep!

Yes, lady struggles, form a sizeable part, of the things I think about every 24 hours apportioned to me in a day.

I hope the struggle ends soon. That time could be spent on thinking how to make that first million ey?

I’m somewhat scared of what the future holds for me.

Uncertainty scares the shit out of me!

I like to plan my things. I can tell you what I will be doing on February 14th at 11 am.

I need to stop procrastinating!

I like to have a small circle of friends.

It takes time to make friends and it takes time to lose them. I like making friends for the long haul.

I still love food.

Seems my friends have learned how to bait me when they want to catch up…. That reminds me, someone owes me samosas. T-Tot samosas, best samosas in the country man. I have been around and no other place make samosas so good. When my cousin was expecting and craving them, her husband had to drive 58km at night to go get them no alternative was accepted lol. I hope when I am ready to cross that bridge the future mother of my kids wont have such cravings, though my friend used to crave papers I may as well pray the cravings will be favorable hehe.

My extended family seems to have quite a number of January babies! I don’t even want to delve into that.

My friends Moriaso and his girlfriend Christine organised a birthday party for ME man at their place. Bev, Dio, Pauline, Loise, Tony, Kev, Jose, Deno, Mwendwa, Zeph and everyone else who made it worthwhile I am grateful. Thank you. January babies learn with time how times are hard during the beginning of the year after Christmas merry making and lower their expectations on what they get for birthdays. We tend to appreciate what we get no matter how small, the thought and effort put into it is sufficient. I won’t write about who blacked out or did what, you can relax guys, Vegas ey? No mwaaing and telling yes?

I have a more optimistic outlook on the future.

I count my blessings every single day.

I am grateful for how far I have come and give my thanks.

May the hourglass keep turning many more turns.

The End! Of my monologue 😀

    Happy belated birthday Mackel9. The beauty of being a January baby – get the birthday celebrations out of the way early in the year and have all year to achieve your dreams, aspirations and resolutions.

    With hard work and dedication,(tools that you already own) a man can achieve big things and accomplish greatness over a lifetime. Understanding the fair sex, however, takes a miracle. 🙂

      Thank you Woolie :-).
      You reminded me the five hundred paged books with blank pages about what men understand about women hehehe. Indeed a miracle is needed

        Now you two…

        First things first, this friend zone storo you need to let go of in your 26th year, it’s counter productive, and it makes you look bad. If a woman you like doesn’t want to date you, move on. If you’re looking for a friend, find a friend, who happens to be a woman. But talking about how a woman ‘put’ you, an individual of very sound mind and 5kg less body (really? hahaha), a woman ‘put’ you in the friendzone? How now? No. Just, no.

        Second, happy birthday Mr M. 🙂

        Third…I have no third. Apologies.

        Makes me look bad how? Friendzone is what people who have done a thesis would call a platonic relationship. I dont see nothing wrong with that,only that if it happens it needs to be pure no adulterations… For ones i like i think i mentioned i move on, plus there is no “we can just be friends” with people i want, no middle ground there hehe.
        Yes i have a flatter belly watch out for it on my instagram lol. I wont talk about my anatomy any further!
        Thank you for the wishes.
        Can I take it on the third you sipped some red wine and forgot? 😂

        Now I get you on the friendzone. So you mean I should stop making moves on my platonic friends friends? There is no rule against that in the relationship rule book. I mean I can make a move on one of your friends and you will be okay with it right? It will be like a referral of some sorts… Only the work involved has different description from the earn your keep type ey?

    The problem with that friendzone tag, it sounds like you’re, umm, whining. Hahaha. There’s no other way to describe it. If you’re only friends, this term never comes up, it only comes up when a girl you like doesn’t like you back, like that, and instead treats you like a friend (which to her you may very well be).

    You make a move and get knocked back, that story dies. You go back to being friends, if you were before, or you attempt to become friends if you think she’s a friend you want to have, but not because you’re waiting for her to come around. If you don’t want to be her friend, move on, more fish in the sea and what not, yes? If you stick around hoping, don’t turn it around on her and start saying friendzone, that’s a punk move, You are not a punk. You’re not, are you? 😀

    PS. You can hit on any of my friends, I don’t mind. I expect a commission though, of a size and value commensurate to said friend. For real. hahaha..

      About your friends hehehe, that sounds like a plan 😀
