l’m blessed ,there is no need to be stressed.

As the year begins most of us have New year resolutions and wishes for the New year. As humans we tend to focus more on what we don’t have than what we have. We need to count our blessings and name them one by one. A man was walking down the street wearing shoes and he looked up and said thank you God I have shoes. Down the street there was a man walking without shoes, he looked up and said thank you God I have legs. A homeless man saw an ambulance and he looked up and said thank you God Iam alive.

In all they all appreciated what they had instead of what was missing in their lives. We tend to stress ourselves by focusing on what we don’t have. This is a New year, we should refuse to stress ourselves by trying to keep up with the Joneses. We are all blessed we just need to count our blessings and name them one by one.

Always remember that you are blessed and there no need to be stressed.


Going green in your home

I feel alive to have some house plants in my home. There is something about them. They are a breath of fresh air. It’s not easy to explain to someone who does not like plants the feeling. Everyday l experience a wonderful feeling when l inspect the plants and see how they are doing.

This is Misty my peace lily l rescued from a flower shop.

When I rescued the peace lily it was sad and droopy  but with some love it became alive. More like giving a plant a lease of life instead of it being dumped in the gabbage.

Peace lilies are very easy plants to take care of. You just need to remember not to drench it with lots of water. They are not sun loving plants. They thrive more with less light and they will reward you with beautiful white flowers.

This is my aglaonema plant also known as the chinese evergreen. I love the colours of the leaves it just shines without doing much. It loves some light which gives the leaves a nice colour. Easy to maintain, loves to dry out between watering.
Just love the christmas cactus/ thanksgiving cactus people say the christmas cactus is not easy to find.The blooms makes me almost forget that it is winter.


Plants are an amazing additions in our homes. They clean the air for us and makes us have a restful day and night. Hurry up and pick up one plant for your home.

Swedish death cleaning

I know most of our cultures hate to talk about the D word. Unfortunately death is inevitable. When l heard of the term swedish death cleaning my mind went haywire. Swedish death cleaning is just decluttering. We all have things which we think we might use but never do. When we are moving that is when we get a wake up call and realise that we have been carrying junk. Swedish death cleaning is more like get rid of your junk to leave less load for your family when you decide to kick a bucket.

 Next time when you chat with friends just say l have been doing swedish death cleaning, l assure you it a great conversation start.  


Child abuse

My heart was left in pain when l had a story about a 9 year old who turned to prostitution to make a living. My head was spinning imagining the kid of men who go to her and sleep with a 9 year old. Many questions, what kind of men are these abusing a child for sex? What goes in their mind?  Iam sure some of them have children. Do they ever imagine that this child was their or they think with their manhood.  Child sexual abuse is very common in society. The unfortunate truth is that those who are supposed to protect these kids are the abusers. What can be done to end this circle of abuse? My eyes are filled with tears. We all need to act to end this. United we conquer the world.

The 9 year goes on to say she gets paid $2 per night to sleep with man. Oh my God what is this life for her. She also takes care of her 5 year old sister. What is going on in their lives. They are kids living like adults and there are shameless adults involved. This is a major stolen innocence.
