As the year winds up I, like everyone else I should hope, have had to look back and determine if it has been a successful year or not. I’ve come to the conclusion that all in all, bar a few achievements, it’s been as unaccomplished as every other before! Yes, I said it. Hell, I don’t even make resolutions and I still manage to eff it up.

I say this because I’m a very harsh critic of myself and I very well know what I’m capable of. Months have come and gone with no significant change. Little growth. Laughable bank account. Unnecessary friends. Unaccomplished goals etc etc. But all is not lost. I did meet some (two) amazing people this year, got rid of chaff, got my health and fitness back in check, my mental stability is just about perfect (lol), and above all else, I have become more aware of the world I live in. I have found pride in my African self, therefore I have began to love myself wholly and completely(I do love myself more in that make up though!Let’s not play! )

As 2016 approaches I plan to lace up my boots and continue this journey of self discovery, with the ultimate goal of being at peace, helping others find peace and happiness and generally making sure that what I choose to do with my time leaves this place better than I found it. I’ve had the realisation that the reason I’ve been stressed out and struggling is because the only thing in my mind was how to make this money! Instead I should have been focusing on how to solve problems, solutions to everyday obstacles. What do people need to make their lives easier? I feel with this sort of genius mindset, where it’s ultimately not about self gain, we could go very far.

This being my last post of 2015, I would like to wish you a happy, peaceful, year of growth. Keep challenging yourself or 2017 will find you just as you are right now, sitting there reading Lisa Gaitho’s posts.

Speaking of which, paired this DIY skirt with a gifted body suit, black pumps and a trench(purchased for all of Ksh500 from Toi Market).
