2009:THE YEAR THAT WAS

I am sitting at Java, Yaya Centre, enjoying a hot mug of Lemon Ginger and honey, and a little spoil of mushroom chips, I am wondering If I really should be eating chips when I have engaged my mind lately with getting to work out in 2010.

It’s the 30th of December 2009 and I am supposed to be in Kitale, the little town in the Rift Valley where I grew up; to Usher in the new year with family; but I am not at the farm, I just got back to Nairobi this morning: It feels like the new year already, It feels like I am about to leap into a new phase of life, exploring new heights, that usually I would have ignored. ..Yes, I am not talking about it.

Anyway, 2009 has been breathtaking. Just when I felt like I knew almost all a 30 year old woman has to know, a whole new world opened up, with all its uncertainties, it became the year I actually truly began to mature, gracefully at that! I have learned to love life, live it to the fullest, and to appreciate that happiness is priceless.

Being young was a dance that I loved.

I tried to relive that in 2009, wasn’t always easy! But I happily broke the rules. ( That’s an on going agenda. I learnt to throw caution to the wind, and learnt to laugh and just be, in the presence of many awesome people, some that are movers and shakers, and some, that have to beg on Mombasa Road everyday to get a bite before nightfall.
In 2009, I learnt to be fearless. I broke the ranks, spoke to those I never thought I would,I strengthened my friendships, and I learned to forgive, and I opened my heart and mind to a whole new world, and It has been beautiful.
2009 will go down in History as one that I was proud to be in. and in 2010, I promise to take more risks! I just re read Think Big ( Ben Carson) and there’s no way I am thinking smaller! T challenged me to give my best in whatever I do, surely, that’s not too much to ask!
I made a resolution this year: I will read more! And I just got me a Robert Greene…( wink wink..)
Thanks for reading my little thoughts this year, and I hope in 2010 you will still be with me herein my blog journey!
