You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
Hey there hope your well!!! Its my day two moving on normally now after posting day one.. Hahaha.. Let’s roll……..
Still the creatives week… And am choosing to talk about how to be creative. We all need to be creative since every aspect of life requires creativity….
These are some of the 5 key thing that keep me creative and I want to share with you….
1. Reading. Reading helps to widen your mind as an individual since different writers are from different societies and cultures they also write differently. When we read other people’s books we get to take away a thing or two that will help us be creative. And reading is not only for writers but for everyone since in literature all aspects of life are adressed.
2. Be Yourself. If your trying to be creative then you should definitely be you. Being yourself is original, creativity and originality are more or less the same. Once your trying to copy or imitate another person then your not original and thus lose of your creativity as well so friends be you, people want your version.
3. Hardwork. For a person to be creative they have to be hard working. It is rare for a lazy person to be creative since they are too lazy to even think about anything because they want people to do stuff for them. Hard work is innovative and creative.
4. Open Minded. This means that people are supposed to be open minded so as to be creative. And besides open minded people are able to be creative because they allow their minds to think outside the box and come up with something.
5. Good Listener. Listeners to mentors, leaders, peers, and above all people who are better than them in the different fields. Good Listeners learn a lot from people because they pay attention to when people speak.
Those are not the only things I consider but for now let’s roll with that. Being creative is not an option because it is so beneficial.
Remember creativity doesn’t come overnight, we teach ourselves to be creative……I encourage you to learn how to be creative.
Today I make one year since I started my blog site on WordPress, and though I haven’t been consistent in writing, I never deleted the app.. Hahaha… and I kept reading other people’s writing once in a while.
Hey my dear readers and fellow bloggers.How do you do?
Woow……. It has been a very long time since I last blogged am back for this month, I missed WinterABC 2020 because I had just joined the blogging site and everything I wasn’t sure how it works so I passed. Then I promised myself that I will definitely take part in the one for 2021, which I almost missed. Actually am a day behind and am trying to catch up, better late than never. Right!!
So this is the creatives week and apparently I don’t even know what to write about this…… But let me start this day by telling you my dear readers about the meaning of being creative…
According to Merriam Webster, creative means the ability to create something. I would say being creative means being able to come up with something original from a person’s own brain. Creativity comes with innovation. Creativity means coming out of your comfort zone and pushing harder.
I believe that each and everyone of us as human beings are creatives because we all have brains given to us free of charge by our creator. Just that the levels of creativity differs from person to person. In accordance to what we get exposed to.
In addition, different people can be creative in different aspects of life it doesn’t matter what. That is to say I may be a creative writer, and other person may be creative in marketing so it differs but there are people who are all around creative.
In conclusion, being creative comes with getting exposed to different views, using available resources and above all use of one’s brain to “think out side the box”
I encourage you to be creative dear readers. Don’t limit the capacity of your brain.
Thank God its a Weekend Right! After all the hardwork throughout the week, we deserve a little break! Hope it went on well beloved. So today am going to write about this lady that really inspires me! I actually started following her of recent during the COVID19 lock down, and I really fall in love with her love for God through watching her going beyond ministries episodes, reading her books and watching some of the movies she has featured in ( actually I got to know her after watching a movie called War Room which inspired me a lot). I think some of you may know her……..
Priscilla Shirer is an American author, motivational speaker, actress and a bible teacher. Through the expository teaching of the Word of God to women, her desire is to see women not only know the uncompromising truths of Scripture intellectually but experience them practically by the power of the Holy Spirit. And I think that is what I love most about her but honestly speaking, I love every thing she does.
I love the fact that she loves women and works towards making women better though exposing them to the word of God, it inspires me to love God. This is evident in the books that she has written, the movies that she has appeared in, it’s amazes that she encourages women to include God in there life and to make him apart of their life. Her love for God and her ministry also inspires me a great deal….. Whenever she preaches or just talks about God, it’s so evident that she has a relationship with God and this inspires me to want to work on my relationship with God. She still loves and involves her family in her ministry which is wonderful and to sum it all I just get so inspired by her especially spiritually.
Besides her inspiration to me, I also chose to talk about Priscilla because I think she has inspired alot of women spiritually and also motivated people especially women to do whatever they want to do by fighting on their knees which is the most important thing. She and her husband have a ministry called Going Beyond Ministries which is focused on the expository teaching of the Word of God. They say that; “We are committed to teaching the uncompromising truths of His Word. Our desire is not only for all to understand His written Word but for all to experience His Power!”
Priscilla Shirer has published numerous books, including A Jewel in His Crown, Discerning the Voice of God, The Resolution for Women, God is Able and Fervent, all these books are based on the scriptures and enougrages people to include God in their life. I have watched some of the movies she has featured in, two of which are Overcome and War Room which I love passionately and I have watched them over and over again. I love the stories of these movies, they are Christian movies and I really encourage you to watch them if you haven’t watched, am sure you will love and enjoy them.
These are some of her quotes that I love;
“Prayer is the portal that brings the power of heaven down to earth. It is kryptonite to the enemy and to all his ploys against you.”
“You write out your prayers so you “won’t forget” . . .won’t forget who the real enemy is, won’t forget the One in whom your hope lies, won’t forget your real need and dependencies are and later, won’t forget the record of how God responds.”
“Satan is nothing but a copycat, trying desperately to convince you he’s more powerful than he actually is.“
“Be ready to see your eyes opened as you close them in prayer. One day soon a whole new kind of woman is going to be emerging from that prayer closet. A free one. A rested one. A contented one.”
“The enemy works overtime to dismantle anything resembling peace.”
“You can’t play games with God and expect to win.”
“Make sure your life writes a story worth reading. Your story starts with God.”
“Every decision you need to make, every task you need to accomplish, every relationship you need to navigate, every element of daily life you need to traverse, God has already perfectly matched up with an equivalent-to-overflowing supply of His grace. “
As I conclude, I want to make a disclaimer, I am not a feminist, I actually advocate for gender equality since we are all human beings created in the image of God I believe that we are supposed to be given equal opportunities. So I repect both men and women, am just trying to celebrate women.
I greet you all from wherever you are thanks for passing by. I sincerely hope from the bottom of my heart that you are doing well my esteemed readers. So being that I have just resumed blogging, I have been deciding on what to be blogging about this month and as I was thinking, I realized that this is a month in which women’s day is celebrated. Therefore I decided to be writing about the different women that have made a great impact in my life and the world, but I will concentrate on the ones that I really look up to most. So if I happen to talk about the one that you also look up to Cheers, if I don’t no offense.
So today, am going to start with my wonderful mother who I greatly look up to, I want to be that kind of woman like my mother is…..Honestly I don’t even know where to start…. I love my mother so very much, she is the one person that am very sure loves me 100%, because I have witnessed her selflessly provide and do all the different things and more for me. Anytime, anyday, anywhere whenever anyone ask me who loves me unconditionally besides God she is my answer. This woman has been there for me through thick and thin, let me just say she is the strongest woman I know. I mean she never gives up, she fights every situation in life till she has won.
My mother inspires me to be better, in fact the best version of my self, though her actions, I don’t know of any hardworking woman than my mother. She is a woman of substance, she prays over everything, in other words she fights on her knees and that has rubed off on me. She has taught me that God is everything I ever need, she has provided for me and made sure I don’t luck anything, oh what a mother! She is a woman of dignity, she respects herself and she knows her worth, oh yes she does, she respects everyone regardless of the different aspects, she is so friendly to everyone.
My mother is so blessed, since she has God and also a blessing to everyone she gets to meet, when she gets a blessing she makes sure she shares it with everyone around her. She is beautiful, oh she is beautiful within her and also on the outer most part (beautiful inside-out), a very dependable and trustworthy person. She knows how to be a mother to everyone.
I could go on and on and on to speak all the good things about my mother since they are countless. And am not prasing her because she is my mother but beacuse she is the best human being that I know. Infact my father has always told me that “your mother is a wonderful woman” and I couldn’t agree more. Therefore in summary, my mother is a wonderful woman. She is my friend, my partner, my confidant, my hero, my pillar, my strong foundation, my mentor, my rebuker, my laughing partner, my sister……. but above all she is my mother, my lovely, amazing, wonderful mother.
Every single day when I kneel down to pray, I thank God for giving me such an amazing human being for a mother, I couldn’t ask for another. I also ask God to preserve her for me so that she sees me become everything she has ever prayed for her daughter because I know she prays for me. And being her only girl I want to make her proud and bring her all the joy that the Lord has to offer through me.
So my mother if you ever get to read this, these words are for you! “My mama I love you so very much. I carry you in my heart at all times. I pray for every good thing to be yours. I pray that God makes me whatever you ever need in a daughter. I pray that am your pride because you are mine and many more things……. I love you mama wange mulungi! ( in luganda acent..haha)
Thank you my dear readers for reading, you can delicate this to your beautiful mother if you like it!
How do you do my dear ones! It has really been long since I last wrote, my sincere apologies. Happy New Year 2021, and I thank God for enabling you survive till now, I also pray that he continues sustaining you beloved. As for me I am doing well just abit occupied. How have you all been!(feel free to tell me how you have been in the comment section I would really love to know).
So every month I make resolutions of the things I want to achive through out the month( yes I plan my month) and one of my resolution for this month was to resume blogging and to make my site active again effective 1st of march which is today.
But as I came back from campus after a very very hectic day I lied on my bed (actually I even dosed off)when my roommate came in its when I woke up and remember that its the first day of march(I had honestly forgotten) and that there is this one thing I have to do which y’all is blogging (Yiiy)
For a minute I almost postponed it for tomorrow (haha) but then I realised that once you postpone it becomes a habit. So as I resume blogging I just want to encourage you to do whatever you plan to do, don’t push it to the next day if you can do it today because tomorrow also as its own things to handle.
Just do whatever you have to do in it’s planned time, there is a reason as to why you fixed it there. I pray against the spirit of procrastination this month and the rest of the year(and all God’s people say Amen). Thank you for reading my blog. Remember to send in comments telling me how you have been!
For starters, I don’t know wheather I have been terribly busy, just inconsistent or if the spirit of laziness is catching up with me Not sure, Hahah. I need your prayers readers, I have taken quite long without indulging in writing, due to reasons am not sure I can explain, but I am truly sorry my dear readers, forgive my inconsistency.
Hope your Fine beloved! Am sending you my regards, I pray that your really doing well my readers. As for me, God is faithfully keeping me a life without me paying a single coin, isn’t he great, glory and honor back to him my creator.
Exercise not only changes your body, it changes your mind, your attitude and your mood.
So today am playing the role of a medical personal, due to the issue that I am talking about, please feel free to call me Dr. Kevin (While at it don’t forget to *wink* COVID 19 period) hahaha. Anyways, am very excited to share with you my thoughts and views as usual, and am basically talking about WorkOuts. Let’s dive in friends……….
He who has health has hope and he who has hope has everything.
Well I won’t say that am a star in the fitness field or that am consistent in my workouts but atleast I try to do my best. So my best kind of workout is jogging where by I usually wake up early in the morning like around 6:30am or 7am putting in mind the curfew, I also I chose early mornings for jogging because the sun isn’t yet out (I don’t like the sun), I get to start my day fresh and besides, at that time the business on the roads is less since I jog by the roadside. So that is the kind of exercise that I engage in,to keep fit and healthy but while at campus I do some aerobics, am not good at dancing (infact you don’t want to see me dance) but well, I really enjoy aerobics.
Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.
I have just shared with you my workout secret, what about you, what do you do for you workout routine (just drop it in as a comment so that I can see if I will change mine and pick up yours). Anyways, Do you workout? If not better start thinking of a workout routine that is best for you, there are very many that you can pick out from, some people prefer to workout at the comfort of their homes, other people prefer going to the gym, while others like me rather go out and run or jog by the roadside, fields or even play grounds. It’s up to you to choose which one works best for you and take it up, it doesn’t hurt to exercise or workout rather you get to release some stress and fatigue which is very healthy. It also helps for “wine like aging” (age like sweet wine) have you had of it, people usually use it as birthday wishes.
Exercise should be regarded as a tribute to the heart.
During this lock down, some of us are just seated home with completely nothing to do that can help us burn those fats that we are letting into our bodies. Some of us wake, eat, sleep, eat and sleep again without doing anything, you will come out of that lock down when your overweight or even obsess so let’s get out of our “eat and sleep” routine and add working out on to the list, so that we keep healthy and in shape, such that we help our body system to function properly especially for the heart and brain which areimportant, for our healthy living.
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
For those that are working, you have to also spare just enough time to embark on your workouts, you can decide to wake up and do your some fitness exercise before you prepare to go for your work or you can decide to do it in the evenings when you return from work . It’s important to keep fit since it helps your body and mind function well and it’s also some sort of discipline that helps you as an individual keep in shape which is very healthy. I mean who doesn’t want to be healthy?
It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
And the other thing, as you eat and workout don’t forget to eat the right food, eat a balanced diet (protein, carbohydrates, vitamins e t.c). Don’t over eat junk food, eat healthy not plenty friends, even when you have a variety of food to eat. Choose to eat that which will keep you body health and strong. Watch what you take in as you exercise and keep physically fit.
As I conclude beloved, do whatever your doing, wheather working, reading, eating, sleeping during this lock down. But don’t forget that you also need to keep healthy and in shape, don’t over eat, eat healthy. Remember your health is very important. Why suffer with health diseases when you can avoid them through workingout. Instill in yourself the workout discipline if you don’t have it, if you do have it just be religious to it and keep it up.
Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.
As you ponder on everything written, feel free to send in your comments and share with me your thoughts. Thanks for reading my views, That was Dr. Kevin for you today *wrinks*
Till then estimated readers. Stay blessed! A bunch of love!

A & Q
1. What is your favourite thing about yourself?I love the whole of me so much. So I can’t really think of the favorite, every bit of me is important to me, in one way or the other. Yes! I can’t tell the favorite.
2. It’s late. You’ve had a crazy long day and you are super hungry. What is your go-to quick meal?Eggs and Irish or Eggs and Chapati, avocado and natural juice included either way. You got it right I love eggs, but they are quick right! Eggs is the way to gofor me.
3. List the best five books that you have read it he last 12 months.Well, am only talking about the ones close to my heart. 1. The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warrens. 2. I Kissed Dating Goodbye by Josh Harris. 3. Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. 4. Tell me your Dreams by Sidney Sheldon. 5. Discerning the voice of God by Priscilla Shirer. There you go.
4. Would you rather be an oak tree or a butterfly?🦋 Butterfly of course, haha who does want to fly? As for me I want to be able to move all around exploring nature and it’s beautiful sceneries. With the wings I would reach designations easily, I mean. Besides that, the butterfly is also beautiful, am a lady you know what it means hehe, let me run to the next question.
5. What book have you reread more than any other, or if you do not reread then why is that?I don’t reread books because it would be like revision, since I vividly remember whatever I read especially if it is interesting. Anyway the book I would reread is The Lion and the Jewel by Wole Soyinka. It’s aromantic comedywith African setting, I read it in my o’level in my literature classes. I just loved the characters basically Sidi who is the Jewel, Baroka the lion and the Lakunle the teacher haha. I love the plot, to be honest I love everything about the book, including the author. Infact look for it if you haven’t read it’s super nice.
6. If you were a kitchen appliance which one would you be?Is it okay if I choose two of them, a frying pan and a blender. A frying pan due to my love for Eggs, I promise if I where a frying pan I would jump for joy every time someone would drop an egg inside me hahahahah it sounds so funny, I wouldn’t mind the fire just for the egg. And a blender due to my love for natural juice, I don’t mind the mixture as long as it’s fresh and natural, my heart would gladly jump at the sound of that, I would make sure I don’t break down as a blender because well, my services would be very much needed by people like Kevin who need the juice, but that electric current scares me honestly hehehe.
7. Would you rather win an Oscar (award for acting) or a Grammy (award for music)?Definitely Grammy, music is just so part of me, and I love singing so much too. I don’t know which one I love more, but just know anything music is my deal. Infact music is always in the background as I do whatever, even now as I type music is playing in the background. So yes! music, it puts my soul, heart and mind at peace.

I have taken quite some time off writing and I was really missing it, since it’s basically my hobby. I have been up and down handling some issues which have really kept me so occupied. Well, they aren’t done yet but I just decided, I must write something today so here I am. Am always thrilled to write plus share with you. Let’s get started…….
Hope you had a good weekend my dear readers and fellow Bloggers, I pray that your all doing well, wherever you may be. As for me am doing great, happy New week you’ll.
You don’t have to be good to start…… you just have to start to be good!
I have been having these words “Just Start….” on my heart so I just decided today that I have to share it with You’ll, since I believe it’s necessary to most of us. Am here to tell you just start, whatever it is just start it and just wait and watch the course it will lead to. Often times we fear starting on different things in our lives because we don’t ever know where it may lead us to, some of us are just so afraid of taking risks. So we just sit back and watch opportunities, jobs and other things being taken from us because we couldn’t make out minds to start. So Just start and see where that thing your think of doing leads you to, take the risk and go straight ahead to do whatever you want to do, talk yourself into doing it, put your mind to it and start.
You cannot begin, until you begin.
Sometimes we just think of the different things we want to pursue and just don’t want to indulge or some of us are just to afraid of doing it. For instance you want to build a house, apply for a job, get married, enter into ministry, apply for a particular program, set up a business, or start a relationship with this person you think is right for you, mention it. But you very much scared to start because you don’t know how it will turn out. Quick question, How will you know how it will turn out if you don’t start? We all go into things without having a clear picture of how it will turn out exactly, but we still indulge, with just faith and trust hoping it turns out great.
Don’t let perfectionism become an excuse for never getting started.
Just start whatever you want to do as long as it’s from your heart, and if your willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goal. I can’t promise that you won’t find challenges along the way, because you sure will, but trust me you will always be glad you tried it out rather than when you just give up before you even start. Take up the risk and start you business, relationship, apply for that job. To try and error is better than not trying at all, nothing is predictable, since we are not foretellers.
Grab every opportunity you have to start whatever it is you want to start. Believe in yourself, set your mind to do it, and put your heart to it. Just start and leave the rest to your creator, give it your all and watch it work out beyond your expectations. Have you ever realised that whenever we are hesitant about doing something, when we actually get that courage to embark on it, it turns out greater than we ever anticipated.
The secrets of success are getting started and being persistent
Don’t allow fear of not knowing the out come of a situation, or an event stop you from pursuing it. Sometimes it’s your destiny your shying away from, don’t allow fear to keep you from your destiny. Whenever your hesitant about something, tell yourself you will do just perfect, you can, you got this, you can make it. Be your personal motivator, if you see it’s what you really want go for it. After all just a try doesn’t hurt, does it?
Motivation is what gets you started, but persistence is the only thing that guarantees your success.
So beloved, I encourage you, plus please encourage yourself, motivation yourself and don’t for get to just start whatever it is, and allow the Creator figure out how it will all turn out. Don’t do his work for him, worry not give it to him and trust me he has got your back. You can do it Just Start. Just Start.
Start before you’re ready.
