Yes we turn one…
For the first time in like forever, I can fully account for all the months in the past year. I can describe each feeling that every month aroused, the thoughts I have battled with, the ghosts I have managed to face head on and the little moments that have been my happiest.
When I put up my second post which was actually meant to be my first , a friend asked me this: huu ni kama mwiba wa kujidunga na hakuna kutoka, uko tayari? Swahili for: this is like a thorn in the flesh and there is no turning back, are you ready? At this point anything that could go wrong flashed right in… I wasn’t sure I wanted to go on!
See, this was one last chat with the team before clicking on the go live button…then this got me on my feet; “it’s so new and unexplored, let’s do this”. Who doesn’t need such friends…I mean.
So as we mark the end of the first 12 months, here are my best lessons so far:
Truths : I have had to learn how to take in some of the most harsh truths and using them as tools of growth.
Gratitude: In every little way that it is delivered, goes a long way.
Bigger listening ears: Ideas have come from all the Tomboy conversations, with time the ears just know what to pick and that in turn increases their size.
Friends: having a good support system is very important. Days get rough, ideas don’t just come,necessary people to keep sane, moments need to be celebrated…that’s what good friends are for.
Faith: It doesn’t matter how small it is, you have to believe that God has got you covered.
Elated is how I feel and above all, I am grateful that you keep coming back.

Super glue it is 🙂 . Thank you for the support, love&love
Congrats on this milestone. And, keep in mind that success is 10% luck and 90% hard work. Of course, your mixed bag of lessons, criticisms, praise, hesitation, elation…. Its part of the journey. I like it that you recognise that the biggest journey is inside, where growth is sometimes a whisper to an attitude, or a fear gently caressed, or sometimes chord hummed where there was music before. Let’s await your next instalment. Happy birthday.
You are a great writer filled with humor and at least made me know how tom boys dress and think and when to spot one.lol
continue with your excellent work.
