Stay Strong and Stay Safe! 💕

There’s no better time than this when we need solidarity to fight this Corona Virus scourge presenting itself as a ‘common enemy’ of mankind.

Frequent washing with soap, sanitizing of the hands with alcohol-based sanitizers and disinfecting often touched-surfaces are necessary.
Keeping at least 1 metre apart from other people as advised by WHO is key.
Isolating oneself and subsequent calling of the NHS or relevant authorities if one feels the symptoms such as fever, dry cough and difficulty in breathing is equally important.

Many lives including ours and that of the frontline workers will be protected if we stay at home as this will limit the spread of this ‘common enemy’.

It’s easy to slip into depression at this time of lockdown but remember to always stay positive and devoid of negativities from people or otherwise.

This isolation isn’t good for everyone’s mental health so please take care of yourself ! You might just feel better by putting on some good music and dancing around for a bit ( I do that alot 🙈 😁)

Take advantage of this time to bond with your family; call your parents, family members and friends.
Take enough fruits and eat healthy in general; try catching up with some fun exercises; take a short walk while observing the social distancing.
Write a book, read a book for yourself or to the children; watch that film you’ve been longing to see.
Be creative as much as you can with this time.

It is a time to retrospect about things that are of value and that really matter in life such as being alive and also the family.
Be encouraged! This time will not last forever. Keep smiling in tough situations like this! Stay strong and stay safe! 💕

Covid-19 Season!

In times like this (Covid-19) Season; it’s just a reminder really that life is short and we don’t own the next minute.

We are coming to terms with the reality of the novel Coronavirus in our society as schools are now closed, people working from home, businesses shut down, banning of flights due to restrictions on movements and to say the least ‘selfish’ panic buying and so on…

Many lives have been lost to this pandemic while many lives are still being threatened.
A well deserved appreciation to the various health institutions, research firms, medical workers and other relevant bodies who are working tiredlessly and vigorously to salvage this situation and to end the alarming mortalities due to the Coronavirus. Our prayers are with you all 🙏

They have come out with timely and detailed safety measures even as the study of this deadly virus still continues.
They advised us to always keep our hands clean by washing with soap, using disinfectants such as alcohol-based hand sanitizers, not touching of the face with unsanitized hands, avoiding physical contact by social distancing, avoiding group gatherings and several more.
We were also advised on boosting the immune system by taking fruits and vitamin C.
We must also be warned not to use any ‘Kangaroo’ measure especially not given by relevant institutions.

Please only keep calm,
We shall beat this together!
By God’s special grace we shall soon come out victorious in fight against the novel Coronavirus. Amen 🙏

Lupita Amondi Nyong’o

I celebrate an amazing woman today. A woman who has inspired so many. Lupita Nyong’o is an actress. Lupita Nyong’o was born March 1st, 1983 in Mexico City. Raised in Kenya from the age of one. She attended college in the United States, earning a bachelor’s degree in film and theatre studies from Hampshire College.

Lupita began her career in Hollywood as a production assistant. In 2008, she made her acting debut with the short film East River and subsequently returned to Kenya to star in the television series Shuga (2009-2012). Also in 2009, she wrote, produced and directed the documentary In My Genes. She then pursued a master’s degree in acting from the Yale School of Drama. Soon after her graduation, she had her first feature film role as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s historical drama 12 Years a Slave (2013), for which she received critical acclaim and won several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, becoming the sixth black actress to win the award. She is the first African to win the award, the first Kenyan actress to win an Oscar.

In addition to acting, Lupita supports historic preservation. She is vocal about preventing sexual harassment and working for women’s and animal rights. In 2014, she was named the most beautiful woman by People. Lupita has also written a children’s book named Sulwe (2019), which became a number one New York Times Best-Seller. Sulwe is the story of a five year old Kenyan girl, who has the darkest complexion in her family, for which Lupita drew upon her own childhood experiences. Sulwe was selected for the 2020 Illustrator Honor at the Coretta Scott King Awards and won for Outstanding Literary Work- Children at the 2020 NAACP Image Awards.

In September 2019, Lupita became an Ambassador for Michael Kors. In October, Lupita and her mother were honoured at The Harlem School of the Arts’ Mask Ball with a “Visionary Lineage Award”. Lupita is involved in the organisation Mother Health International, which is dedicated to providing relief to women and children in Uganda by creating locally engaged birthing centres.

Have a lovely weekend guys.

You have to accept that everyone is not going to accept you!

“Your job is not to change people’s mind about you. Your job is not to try to make people like you.
Your job is to run your race to be who God called you to be and not worry about the critics and the naysayers. God will cause the right people to like you. One of the best things I have learned is everybody is not supposed to like you, everybody is not supposed to approve you.
Some people are ordained by God, not by the enemy, but by God to not be for you.
You have to accept that everyone is not going to accept you!”- Joel Osteen
