We are in the final week of this month and I look forward to more opportunities to grow in my thinking, learning and to finally commit to working out every morning- at least for 30 days.
July’s come with surprises for me; I bought more books this month than any other month of the year thus far. I traveled to Nairobi to spend some time with my absolute favorite humans. I had fun shopping for kiondos, bookmarks and brass earrings. I also came to appreciate freedom of movement when I got to stay out past 7pm without panicking that some police officer would hound me or clobber me for staying out past curfew time.
The other surprise was my patience when traveling back to Mbita and our bus had a flat tyre that took two hours to fix and I had to get to the house at 8:42pm which is way past the curfew time here.
So, I collected some snippets of things that I got, experienced and also look forward to courtesy of this month:
Stationery: I love buying pencils by the dozens and this month, I got a number of packs which I shared with some of my friends and neighbors while keeping some to myself.
I also enjoyed watching some awesome Korean Dramas on Netflix and let’s just say that of these three, I loved Healer and K2 the most!
I also came across a quote on the Instagram profile page of: BusinessMindset101 which had me stunned and I couldn’t help but jot it down:
“Jealousy can come in the form of jokes. Pay attention.”
Books: What would this month be without not one but two major bookhaul deliveries? Here are 4 titles I am reading next.
And when it comes to music, I would say that some of the songs that I have enjoyed listening to this month include:
- Million Little Miracles by Elevation Worship & Maverick City
- Butter by BTS
- Anti-Romantic by Tomorrow X Together
- Ex by Nikita Kerring
- We’re Already by Kimmuseum
I am looking forward to spending more time eating healthy, staying fit and writing more in August.
Have an awesome week ahead!
