Be your own damn superhero.
We forget, sometimes, how important comfort is. . Not just external comfort - but that internal comfy feeling deep in your gut when things are aligned. . The feeling that instantly becomes a churning discomfort when something is inherently wrong for you or your joy. . Close doors. Say no. Remember the wellbeing of your inner child. . Your happiness depends on it. Your DREAMS depend on it. . And did you know, dear reader, that there are people out there who need your dreams to come true?#rippleeffect
Leona Lewis’ Bleeding Love plays; the theme song for a while during a relationship that led to engagement. I didn’t know heartbreak but I thought I did. A year later, an abusive man would demonstrate those words to me for two years, trapping me inside my mind as well as the home next door to the one I just said goodbye to. As I listened to the lyrics, I realized it was possibly the theme song for my entire life up until very recently. Perhaps it even symbolized my relationship with my country. . Just shared an old piece of writing, documenting my emotions related to my sudden departure from Kenya two years ago. Link in bio. . Image of @shereegildenhuys in Cape Town.
Sometimes I sit in chairs and I remember that I'm not as tall as I thought I was. . I'm currently in a hotel, and going to see the love of my life (Prince, my three-legged dog) in less than three days. I'm moving house and my website is finally out. All I can think is... it's finally happening! And yet, I'm not surprised. . My life is upside down and nothing like what I thought it would be a few days ago. . I am just filled with awe and gratitude. Some fear, too, of course. I'm human. . Onwards and upwards. Every day, in every way: I am getting better and better.
Whether it’s your career, your lover, your location, or your friends – it should never feel like an uphill battle. A challenge, sure. But a war that leaves you defeated and famished more than its flesh will leave you full, well…. that is not a life worth living, dear reader. . Don’t ignore the #whispers. . Link in bio to new blog post - When #alignment whispers its name. . 📷 somewhere in the Netherlands after I shot one of my favourite models. . . . . . . #dutchart #dutchsunset #dutchsummer #nederlandismooi #kenyanphotographer #kenyanblogger #dutchbloggeronthemove #dutchbloggers #dutchblogger #desiblogger #desibloggers #aligned #aligned #lawofattractionquotes #hermetics #hermeticism #sufism
