Dear married man-You are ruining the perfect image of my future husband

Fun fact: married men who have their wives or whole family (nuclear family) as their social media profile pictures are the worst cheats; well most of them. I cannot begin to tell you the disgust I feel every time one of them is in my inbox professing their undying love, in fact, I throw up a little in my mouth every damn time, arrgghh! See why I still want to come back as a man in the next life; so that I can shamelessly hit on single women while badmouthing my wife and feel zilch about it!

Dear married man, just in case you hit your head on something hard when you fell in lust with me, had a serious concussion and suffered a mini amnesia, let me remind you that you are MARRIED! I am so sorry that you fell but I am sure the concussion is getting better now, so could you please leave me the hell alone! I am also sorry that your ears and in this case your eyes stopped functioning properly when you started getting better because I have continually reminded you that you are married and a respectable family man(I am sure you also forgot that part of being a family man). However, for some weird reason that part also keeps on escaping your mind.

Dear married man, telling me that you have never found yourself wanting to have a side babe because you are a church person, but you wouldn’t mind committing a sin with me this once does not make me feel special. It makes me roll my eyes so hard I just don’t know how I still have them intact. It makes me wonder just how committed are you to your God and your family.

Dear married man, bad mouthing your wife to me because you want to get laid just makes me feel sick! Yo, you made your bed, so could you please get into your jammies and lie on it without complaining. Telling me that she doesn’t shower properly, she’s abusive, she’s gloomy all the darn time and all the flimsy reasons that you give to get laid just make me feel like slapping the BS outta you. How did you get to that part of getting married if she wasn’t neat and jovial as per your standards? Besides, she’s getting gloomy and smells of baby puke because she has to deal with a colicky baby and a hyper toddler all day, but you can’t give a hand because you are shamelessly messaging other women. Don’t you feel an iota of shame though?

Dear married man, I don’t want your ‘listening ear’ because you think I am so lonely and you are the only one who can save me from this boredom. I am very much ok and if I wanted a listening ear and a shoulder to lean on, I have my friends to do that; if they can’t, I have my journal to pour my feelings into. Thanks but no thanks.

Dear married man, I don’t need your compliments to make me feel beautiful. I know I am beautiful and telling me I am beautiful is only confirming what I already know; sorry for my humble bragging J. It is ok to appreciate a God’s creation but don’t use it to try and get laid. Appreciate your wife more J

Dear married man, you are ruining the picture perfect image I have for my future husband. I would like to continue pretending that he will not be as disrespectful as y’all. I would like to pretend that he will not put me and our kids as his profile picture on Facebook or on WhatsApp then go ahead and shamelessly solicit for sex chats and sex on Messenger and the like. I would like to pretend that he will not go telling young single ladies that he is in the process of separation or divorce, so that he can get laid as many times as possible. I would also like to pretend that he will not ‘kill me’ in order to get laid and maybe even sire a baby or two just to show you single lady that he loves you. I would like to continue pretending that he will have his wedding band on all the time and that he will wax lyrical about me to anyone and everyone who cares to listen. Most of all, I would like to continue pretending that he will NEVER have eyes for another!

Dear married man, I just want to wait for my future husband without disturbance from you, is that too much to ask? I just want to be HAPPILY MARRIED when the time comes, just like you, please stop ruining the perfect image of that perfect marriage, please!

Please start having eyes for your wife and your wife only; betrayal is not a PRETTY THING, not at all! Guard your vows to her like your whole life depends on it; it’s the least you can do.

The best picnic park in Nairobi; Arboretum, Nairobi

Image result for nairobi arboretum

Remember that time when you were young and all you wanted was to go to Nairobi for holidays or whatever else that would make you go to Nairobi? I remember too. I loved Nairobi then and I still do but not as much I did then. I still love Uhuru Park decades down the line; I never get enough of it. I remember how I hated the hills and valleys I’d climb and descend every day on my way to and from school(true story!). There was no escape especially to my primary school where you had to go down one hill and go up one hill for you to get to school. I look back and realize that the involuntary hiking back then might be the reason why I never add weight decades down the line.

Now I look back and wonder how I pay my hard earned cash to go hiking! Or even pay cash to go enjoy a cool breeze, fresh air and butterflies at Arboretum, Nairobi. It just hit me how we are always looking forward to things that are yet to come (I hope I am making sense,lol!) instead of enjoying the moment. The chirping of birds in the morning or in the evening is something I yearn for every morning and not the honking of buses or very annoying motorbikes.

So the other day my bestie and I decided to go to Arboretum Nairobi after church; I almost bailed out at the thought of walking all the way cus it’s quite far. So we passed by a fast food joint and got fries ready to walk, and to walk we walked. I am sure we walked for more than 40 minutes from Nairobi CBD; we didn’t know we could take a Kileleshwa  matatu(no. 46) from Odeon terminus. To make the matters worse we took the longer route (the route Lavington folks use) instead of the usual one (State House road). In short, Nairobi Arboretum has two gates aka entrances.

Image result for nairobi arboretum

At some point I almost sat down in the middle of the road cus I was too hungry not to mention too tired. That walk was enough exercise to last me a whole week! We had asked for directions and when we walked for too long we thought we were misdirected, we almost went back only to meet the ones who had directed us and they told us they were also going there.

We got there and paid Kshs. 50 entrance fee; it has to be paid via MPESA paybill since they don’t handle cash. We couldn’t wait to get to the park, sit and enjoy our almost cold fries,haha!

Arboretum was started in 1907 by the then Conservator of forests Mr. Battiscombe as a site for exotic trees. This is because Kenya Railways depended on wood to power the trains and the trees were getting depleted real fast! So, this site was meant to be a safe place for the exotic and indigenous trees and shrubs incase they all got cut.

Arboretum was gazetted as protected Forest reserves in 1932; it is managed by the Kenya Forest Service. It hosts 300+ species of indigenous and exotic trees not to mention over 100 species of birds, monkeys and butterflies.

Charges in Kshs.

  • Kids- 20
  • Adults-50
  • Photography (professional Camera)-1,000
  • Videography (Professional camera)-2,500
  • Ground hire-50,000

Birthday Weekend at The Lord Erroll

Happy new month y’all..

So, a girl turned a year older the other day; on June 1st to be precise and if I say I have learnt to much the past one year, it might sound cliché from here to high heavens. They say you should strive to learn something from every situation and moreso learn something new every day. Every day I look back and literally ask myself what I have accomplished and however small it is; I always make sure I part myself on the back for it. Don’t worry though; I aint planning to bore you with the details of what I have learned in the past one year.

Y’all know I aint a birthday party person especially if it is my birthday but I always make sure to do something nice for yours truly cus self-love is the most important love ya know J. So, when the royal wedding was happening and The Lord Erroll was hosting a high tea party cum wedding watching, my girl Shi and I had an aha moment and thought we could make it my special treat for turning a year older. It’s quite an achievement to turn a year older these days ya know; with all the water accidents, stray bullets, irate spouses, huge national debts and stuff, be thankful for each day you wake up and go to bed alright.

To tell you the truth, I haven’t been so excited about anything in the near past and my every waking moment was spent looking forward to the day. My sister in-law had gifted me a dress that wouldn’t fit her cus it was too big for her; it was also too big for me and I needed it fixed so that it could fit me. Sometimes being small bodied comes at a price but hey; I aint complaining. We had bought fascinators cus being extra is our hobby, haha! Unfortunately, we couldn’t find gloves to finish the look but now that we look back, that extra extra wouldn’t have looked good ya know. It would have reeked shagmodoz vibes from here to kingdom comes.

I kept reminding Shi to make a reservation at The Lord Erroll for us cus if she would have forgotten I wouldn’t have forgiven her; the way her amnesia is set up, eeh, let’s not even talk about it. Yeah, you have to make a reservation atleast 12 hours prior. Tea is served between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. but outta excitement and stuff, we showed up 30 minutes earlier and we took the 30 minutes or so to take photos and stuff before the tea was served. Also, there’s no public transport, you have to take a taxi if you don’t have a car to get you there (it is Runda we are talking about, so yeah).

The portions (pastries) are quite generous and you can take as much tea or coffee but you can only take too much of it you know. I don’t know if its cus we’ve been having wheaty stuff all week as our snacks but let’s just day I took enough wheat (pastries) to last me a whole year, haha! I’m planning to ditch wheat for the next few weeks cus eeer, I just cant stand it now.

They say you should use money to get used to it (tumia pesa ikuzoee); I could get used to the ambience at The Lord Erroll. There’s just something about the calmness, the green plants, the small water ponds, the small fountain at the reception and the friendly staff that can make you forget all your troubles, LOL! I haven’t said so many ‘thank yous’ in such a long time he he. At some point they placed napkins on our laps and as Shi put it a few days later, she almost asked whether the extra service and politeness was going to cost us some extra money. In an era where good service is almost becoming rare, their service was quite baffling if I may say so. I am looking forward to going there one more time just to soak in the awesomeness.

Did I also say, we asked the manager to take a few photos of us and he was glad to do it? Yes, he was all glad to do it and although the lighting was kinda off, he took some awesome shots. However, I was just awkward with photos on this particular day and eeer, mine didn’t come out nicely. All the same; they are just meant for my eyes to show my grandkids that I used to have a life back then, haha! I wonder what apps they will have discovered by the time I am using a walking stick; I think we have seen pretty much everything in terms technology.

I guess I am getting rusty with my grammar; my writing hiatus is not doing me any good. Please bear with any grammatical errors you might encounter here.

Have a productive month

For Geminis, its a birthday month, so I am still celebrating until the month ends

The year is ending in a few days; I don’t know whether I am excited cus I’ll get to write down the same ol’ New Year resolutions or I am disappointed cus my last year’s resolutions never saw the light of day. Wait, did I even have New Year Resolutions? I honestly don’t remember, lame huh?! Anyway, for the longest time, I don’t do New Year resolutions cus let’s face it, consistency and I don’t appear on the same sentence. I struggle so much to do things consistently. Maybe that’s why I am a low-key failure in a lot of things. Anyway, they say you cant do the same thing over and over and keep expecting different results; cliché I now but I am hoping to try something new this coming new year.

I am going to write my goals aka aspirations in a ‘tablet’ aka a dream board and everyday I’ll look at them and see how far I am from achieving the goal. Even the Bible says we should write down our visions; there’s power in putting stuff down on paper. They make take time to happen but they’ll surely happen. Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

In the last few years I have come to learn that it is just not about writing your visions; it all depends with your commitment and your motivation towards the said goal(s). I have printed a few papers that contain something I want to accomplish in the long run but sometimes I look at them and feel nothing. Each of the fours printouts have been placed strategically such that when I am on my bed, I can look up and see one(its placed on the ‘ceiling’), one on the door, one on the wall and one inside my closet. I kid you not, sometimes I don’t see them other times I see them and feel nothing; yet other times I’ll see them and actually think about them but I’ll be too unbothered to do sh*t. So, yes, you can have a goal, put it down on paper and even print out the paper but without self motivation, you will do nothing.

I have also learnt that you don’t have to make a list of your goals/aspirations at the tick of the clock at 11:59 p.m. on that day. You can make them as need arises; when something shifts in your life and you decide, mmhh, I can fly with this one. Don’t limit your mind to making them at the start of the year; you can make them even on November, one month to the end of the year and still accomplish them.  If I told you I had not thought about going up Mt. Longonot at the start of the year, would you believe me? If I told you I had never thought of starting a YouTube channel all my life, would you believe me? If I told you I have never thought about affiliate marketing, would you believe me? Look at me now; with an experience of a lifetime; hiking Mt. Longonot.  Look at me now; with a YouTube Channel and an affiliate blog. They are not where I would love them to be in terms of content because inconsistency happens but I know I am getting there. You get the drift though; just start whenever the bug bites you. The most important thing is for you to get to the end result; it doesn’t matter when you start, what matters is the end result.

The good thing about this life is that every day, every week, every month, every year is a chance to make all the wrongs right. It is a chance to start afresh; easier said than done but for a person who’s still learning the power of positive thinking (read me), the possibilities are endless!

To tell you the truth I have learnt so many things in the last one year and specifically the last half of the year than I have learnt in my entire 30 years. Yes, I know it sounds cliché from here to Timbuktu but the good Lord knows I have gained so much wisdom.

Am I proud of my achievements? Yes of course, duuuuh! Am I mad at self cus I made a whole lot of stupid mistakes? No, cus guess what; I would not have learnt a thing if everything was all smooth. Sigh! This whole post sounds so cliché but every single sentence resonates with my situation right now it is ridiculous!

Happy New Year! Yes, I know its too early but I just want to be the first to wish you good tidings.

God has your back
A child jumping into their dad’s arms cus he will catch them

I don’t know how to make it sound like a sigh of ‘it’s been quite some time since we were here* but we are back here now. I know I need to up my consistency game cus lets face it, I cant be consistent to save my neck. Anyway, I trust you have been well and I’m going to try and be consistent for the next few weeks even if it is the only thing I’ll accomplish before the year ends. I will try and do two posts per week, so help me God!

So, sometimes back I went for a team building event never mind we don’t work in the same company; it was the first time I met some of those people, well, minus the event organizers. There were many activities but one event got me thinking the other day and it was the inspiration behind this post. We were grouped into three and two people were to stand facing each other while the middle one would have their back to one of the two..Does it make sense though   😀 ?

The catch was to have the middle one swing back and forth; completely letting themselves go hoping the person behind or the person in front would catch them lest they fall. The other catch was to have your eyes closed, your hands across your chest and not move your foot in front to act as a balance; just let yourself go and the other person will catch you.

I was my turn to be in the middle and no matter how much I tried to let myself go cus I knew the other person would be there to catch me, I just could not. I would either open my eyes or I will put my feet in such a way that I’ll still support myself by the time I am landing in their arms. For starters, this behavior is for a person with trust issues, hahaha! Secondly, this is a person who still wants to be in control even after being assured that there is a person or persons in control.

So the other day I remembered that team building event and I realized how we don’t trust God will work out things for us even after He has assured us over and over again He will not let out feet slip. He has told us over and over again not to be afraid but we will pray and still try to take control over things. We are all human and we will still want to have our hands on stuff just to make sure things go well but maybe its time we let go of our fears. Its time we let God take control and just wait for things to work out cus eventually they will work at some point.

So, trust God and lean not on your own understanding; God has your back, quite literally! Just surrender and let Him work out things for you. You prayed in faith that things will work out, just trust that your prayers were heard and at His appointed time, things will definitely work out.

It’s time to take my own advice cus I worry too much!

Cheers to Flowered Pants

How many times have you told yourself or anyone who cares to listen that you cant do A,B,C,D because of 1,2,3 reasons? How many times has that self limiting belief lost you a couple of life changing chances? A lot, right?

So, for the longest time I keep telling myself I cant wear multicolored pants or even skirts and what has that belief got me? Over 10 pairs of black pants and other dull colors like brown. Let’s not even get started on how I don’t have even one flowered dress. Lets not even talk about how I just recently started buying colored tops; my colors were black, brown and navy blue; never mind I tell everyone who cares to listen of how my favorite color is baby blue. Lets not even talk about of how I only have three baby blue outfits in my closet.

You must be thinking this is one weirdo of a lady. I had started believing in that weirdness until a friend’s flowered pants couldn’t fit her and her being almost the same size as yours truly, the flowered pants ended up in my closet. Initially I had bought a top that would perfectly match with that flowered pants and its like the good Lord had directed me to buy that top, hahaha!

It however took me almost 2 months to put on that outfit cus I had reasons from here to kingdom comes as to why I could not put it on. For starters, I thought it was too flowered and too screaming for a ‘work’ outfit. Secondly, that Sunday that I purpose to put it on, I just don’t have the energy to strut in heels and that is how I end up in another outfit. I have put on an outfit two times in a week because of that shoes excuse, yeup! I kid you not!

So this last Sunday I purposed come rain come shine, I must put on this outfit! And that’s how I could not get enough of myself the whole day!

So, be open to change and ideas; you never know what you are missing out in these streets cus you cant put on a yellow and white polka dotted top.

Just for the record, everything in this look is thrifted J

How to be the other woman

So, the other day I stumbled on a video of two girls and according to the comments, one of the girls had ‘snatched’ the boyfriend of the other. So, they were fighting and for some weird reason I watched the video to the end something I normally don’t do. The ‘snatcher’ had braids and the other one had short hair so it was easy for her to overpower the snatcher cus she’d drag her on the floor by her hair. Y’all know how painful that can get. Let’s not even imagine the braids could have been freshly done, Issapainmygirls


At some point the snatcher was stabbed on her thighs with a pair of scissors that had been to cut her hair, Lord! The things I’ll see on this internet. So, it got me thinking, if I was that man these girls were fighting over and my girl stabbed or did evil things to the other girl, maaan, I would dump her like yesterday! For starters, that is a person capable of stabbing you in your sleep if you so much uttered another girl’s name. That’s a dangerous person, a person that won’t feel anything butchering you in cold blood and continue sleeping like nothing happened. Such are the kind that scald their husbands in their sleep and leave them for dead or those people from you know where (those that destroy the family jewels). That is not love, it is obsession and y’all know an obsessed psycho is worse than a wounded lion.


I might be one of those nice girls that finish the last but I’d never lift a finger to fight another woman cus he snatched my man. For starters, a man is never snatched; I mean, he is not a purse or a handbag or just something that can be wriggled out of your hand. The ‘snatchee’ agreed to get into the trap with his eyes wide open and at some point he might have told the snatcher that he is single. What do you do if he swears by his mother that he is single? Si you fall for him. Anyway, that is not reason enough to fall for a married, engaged or a dating man. Women have a 6th sense, cliché or not and if your gut tells you he’s hooked somewhere else, trust your instincts, he sure is hooked. In such a case, engage your Sherlock Holmes skills and dig every little detail you can get your hands on. This is not about nabbing that man in his shenanigans ; it is about how to be the other woman if you decide to go down that route;

Boyfriend Stealer Quotes | Your Ecards q. bitching, cheat, quotes, quote, boyfriend, ex, bad, guy ...

  1. Make sure your hair is short at all times in case the missus gets hold of you. Also, never wear dangling earring especially loops incase the missus shows up unexpectedly and you don’t have time to remove them.


  1. Make sure you are stronger than the missus just in case a fight ensues. You can’t be on the wrong and still not have the energy to defend you, pick a struggle girl!


  1. Never make your presence known to the missus. Don’t text or call the missus with an intention of taunting her. Maybe she even knows you exist and she’s strategizing on how to deal with the both of you. So, lie low like an envelope. You decided to put asunder what God has put together, live with the insignificance and live in the shadows like it was meant to be.


  1. In case the missus gets hold of your a** and you think fighting back is the best option, think twice. For starters, if you are the tiny type like yours truly, run for dear life; you cant win that battle. If there’s no way of running away and of course she’s overpowering you, just play dead and trust me she’ll leave alone cus she’ll think you are unconscious or even dead. Fighting back will only get yo a** whooped a proper one and you’ll be left feeling like a tractor run you over.
  2. Make sure there’s something unique about you and thats why the man wants you and not her. You cant be basic and expect me(missus)  not to feel wounded. Even if you are a few extras, it’ll still hurt but it’ll hurt more if you are just basic.
  3. Make sure you are not friends with the missus; the betrayal is even worse if you are friends or acquaintances


As for the missus;

Let them know that you know what they are up to. Then sit back and strategize on how to deal with them. Beating her up or scalding her shouldn’t be some of the strategies though; be smart. Besides, how many women will you fight in the name of protecting your man? ME: I love myself too much, that might man might as well fight for me by zipping up, emotionally or otherwise. In case you are wondering, there’s physical and emotional cheating or even both; story for another day.


Have a cheat free week 😉

Hear this, White Fairy stories start with once upon a time. Black Fairy stories start with, yo, you are not going to believe this. True or false? Anyway, I am starting mine the white way though its a Kenyan/Worldwide story. So, sometimes back someone asked for my help and after I slept on it, I offered to help. Few days after, they needed the same help to be constant; twice or thrice a week. I was taken aback and my money loving self got an idea…Why dont I charge for this help? Can you believe that?! We haggled over this help and out of frustration they asked me to keep money out of it.

At the back of my mind I told myself, fair enough, no more money is going to be mentioned anywhere. However in my physical self *chuckles*, I asked them, whats in it for me? So we(I) came up with a plan where both of us would benefit from each other and at the end of the day, everyone goes home happy. We are yet to make use of the devised plan and to tell you the truth, I dont even know if I want to go through with it.


The weeks that followed had me thinking how we have been accustomed to scratch my back I scratch yours it is ridiculous. Sometimes back I helped someone in their time of need and I didnt even charge them a cent for whatever. Few years later, I was in the same predicament they were in previously and of course I expected them to help me as a way of returning the favor. They did come through but it was short lived; it came with a few conditions that I religiously followed but it didnt end well. Needless to say *Chuckles*(I have always wanted to use this phrase), yes we see eye to eye but the relationship is obviously strained.

Where were we? We all know that part of the Bible(sorry for y’all who dont subscribe to this school of thought though I know, you have a similar one) where we are supposed to help but our right hand should not know what our left hand is doing. However, it is human nature to want to get help(returning favor) from someone we had helped. Trust you me most people help because they know at some point they’ll need this same person to chip in when needed. It is alright to want help from them but it is not alright to make it sound like its your right.


We’ll lend money to our friends cus at some point, they should come through for us. We babysit because at sometime, they should babysit for us. We do practically everything because the same help should come through for us at some point. Is it ok to expect the help right back? Yes and No. Yes because we are humans and we wont mind the help(favor) if it comes through. No because, they might not be in a position to help at that particular time. Unless of course this person is used to asking for favors all the time and when it is time to return them even once they vanish into the thin air. There’s only a thin line between being nice and being carried for a fool. Some people are users and they’ll exploit your good nature to the last drop of your blood.

I know I have said that we should learn to expect less from humans but we can only do so for so long. We all need affection and kindness from our fellow humans at some point. All I am saying is, be open to everything; that the help might come from your buddies or family, or it might come from a complete stranger. Either way, dont hold grudges that it didnt come from where you expected; just forgive them. Easier said than done, HUH?!

Enthusiasts of Raila Odinga

I have always told everyone who cares to listen of how I want to become a man-Raila Odinga in my next life. Well, that keeps changing depending on the circumstances at hand. Why do I want to become a man in my next life? There are so many reasons if I start listing them now I might take the rest of this post just explaining. One thing that stands out though is the fact that men get away with a lot of shenanigans and well; I could get away with some of them. A few things however make me re-think my wish; one of them being how a man can woo a girl for eons and every darn time he gets rejected he tries harder. Me: I cant put up with that sh*t for whatever reason. If that person has already told you in not so many words they don’t want you in their life, why do you feel the need to try a third and a fourth time? Call me a quitter but I love myself too much; rejection aint my cuppa

Anyway, we are talking about the just concluded elections. Yes, I know you are already rolling your eyes so hard cus you wanna put elections in the past. However, before your eyes see the part where your hair follicles start, lets try and learn a few things from Raila Amollo Odinga or rather the Odingas. For starters, Raila is my latest role model; not like I have many of them. Do I even have role models? Story for another day.  Anyway, Raila Odinga was in politics even before some of you knew how to clean their noses. Yes, he’s been in politics for more that 30 years. A kid was born; they grew up, schooled, graduated, got a job, and got married and now they have a baby or babies of their own and Raila is still in politics. I am not going to dwell on the gory details of his wins and his losses cus we all know them; however, we have a few lessons we can learn from him.


Let’s start by saying consistency is something the good Lord denied me when I was being created. I can’t be consistent to safe my neck. You know the way you are supposed to do something for at least 21 days to see results, if I do it for more than three days; I pat myself on the back. Thanks heavens for my fast metabolism otherwise this eating clean and keeping fit won’t cut it for me. I’d be looking like a baby hippo all the darn time. Anywho, matters Raila Odinga; he’s been consistently vied for a political seat every time there’s an election regardless of whether he’ll win or not. Even when all odds show that he’s headed for a loss, he still goes for it. As I said, my quitter self would have given up on the third time; I just don’t know how to take rejection. That consistency is what some of us lack and I guess I am the biggest culprit. We try the first and the second time and if we fail in both times, we hang our boots. They say the last key is the one that opens the door; well, I guess that’s why I have been out there more often than not cus I try two or three keys and call it quits.


Quitting is a word that does not appear in Raila’s dictionary. He has tried his hands on presidency for three times and he has lost on all three of them. Never did it occur to him that since he has lost twice, maybe he should have quit on the third one. Regardless of all the ridicule and supposed injustices that came his way, he still soldiered on and every time he was sure he’d clinch it. Well, lets just say we all need to have Raila Odinga as our spirit man or is it spirit animal. His resilience is something we should all admire.

However, and I know I am contradicting myself; it is good to know when to quit; to save yourself the humiliation, to re-strategize, to come up with something new. He just doesn’t know when to quit!

Need for Change

We all know doing the same thing over and over again and expecting something different is quite unreasonable. Well, he has changed political parties more times than we can count but there’s something about his strategy that doesn’t auger well with his bid for presidency. I don’t know whether it is his choice of political buddies aka advisors or it is his implementation of his party policies that doesn’t favor Raila Odinga, there’s just something that fails him. But if you ask me, his choice of political buddies might have been his greatest undoing. They say if you hang out with eagles you’ll become like them, same as hanging out with chicken (sorry chicken lovers; I love chicken just as much). If the people you hang out with do not seem to be developing in anyway, it is time to call it quits with them.

Spousal support (Ida Odinga)

Marriage is for till death do you apart; but some of y’all wont wait until then. When your spouse needs you the most is when you realize how you had not signed up for it. Ida has been RAOs support since we can remember. She’ll always show up in almost all his public political meetings. Never have we read in the blogs how she left RAO and called him unprintable names like how some of y’all clean your dirty laundry in the public. This woman is the proverbial woman in the good book; she’s ‘the good thing’ RAO found. Embracing her man even when he fails; hugs him and encourages him to try next time. I’d hate to imagine the many times she’s had to be the strength he desperately needed. How she had to go out of her way to make him feel better after all the ridicule and stuff. Raila Odinga might be strong but let’s just say Ida Odinga is stronger. It needs a different kind of strength to be the strength that the other person needs.
