Men - I thank God for the two men in my life; life partner and my new interest aka aspiring boo (I don’t kiss and tell)
Marks - What I can kiss and tell though is this campaign on stretch marks #loveyourlines…many would love to do anything and everything to hide or get rid of stretch marks. #loveyourlines is out to get people head over heels what others consider a weakness, it is about being vulnerable and finding strength in that vulnerability...I love my lines. (follow on Tumblr and IG)
2. Things I am looking forward to: Traffic, Treats and Tattoo 3
Traffic - I'd said it over and over, I work from home because I can’t be in traffic for an hour morning and evening 5 days a week and remain sane but since I moved my organization to Kirichwa Rd, I have done a whole lemonade spin on that vibe and traffic is my new bestie. I leave the house at 6.15a every morning and for the next 1 hour 15 mins, I get lost in whatever book I am reading…same thing in the evening.
Treats – I was treated to the Shawarma place in Adams by one of my best people this week, their chilli is to die for and so that’s been checked off my list, now looking for treats to The Juniper Kitchen, I also owe my best girlfriend a treat to DusitD2 (not sure how i got myself to make that promise) and aspiring boo; Ocean Basket and Mama Ashanti who reconnected me to shito, an amazing chilli I discovered while in Ghana…when is restaurant week again?
Tattoo #3 - I want to get a third but I can’t decide where I want it to be, pinterest is sorting me out though...here are my first two.
3. Things I am reading: Online and Offline
Offline - My 2 hours 30 mins in traffic are all about me and James Frey’s A million little pieces, will do a review on it when I am done. (See the comments on my instagram below)
4. Things I am watching: Music Videos and TV Series
TV Series - I know I am late but I am recently discovered Tyrant and WayWard Pines which FOX is airing on Wednesday and Thursday respectively and I am trying very hard not to download them off torrent as a way to work on my time management.
5. Things I am planning: My June Calendar
From 2nd June to 30th June, I will be travelling a lot (within our borders), speaking in schools, corporate spaces and I am totally excited about that; sharing about my journey and giving hope to others. As I have said here before, I will keep telling my story because every day there is a man, a woman, a child somewhere who get diagnosed with a mental health condition or gets sexually assaulted and they need information and support and most of all to know that someone else has walked that path, that they are not alone…that this is not the end, there is something to look forward to.
It is the long weekend, I have previously blogged about howone can regulate during such times and also talked about how extreme conditionscan cause/worsen your mental health condition…be safe, make a list of things that will keep you grounded. If you need to talk, email My Mind, My Funk on firstname.lastname@example.org
