Choosing positivity

It's a new week! (This post should have gone up since last week but procrastination got me) I know virtually everyone dreads Monday for one reason or the other. For most, it's because another weekend has come to an end. For students like me, it's because of all the lectures ahead even though we were longing for it during the holidays.

Well as for me, this week is going to be the beginning of something different so I've been looking forward to it. The past two weeks have been annoyingly terrible for me or should I put it as terribly annoying? Either one, I'm sure you get my point. I think if you're not yet settled down after two weeks of resumption and you have a choking timetable, you'd agree with me that 'terribly annoying' describes it all. As if going through all that stress was not enough, I had this very negative attitude towards everything. Where it came from, I don't know. I was just whining and beating myself up over things I couldn't change. I discovered this during my usual 'me' time.
Yes, acknowledging that there's something wrong is the first step towards making things better. Over the weekend, I managed to assure myself everything would be alright and I promised myself to be positive, positive, positive and believe me, it worked.
Enough about the past! It's a new week and I'm excited. No matter how tight my schedule might be, I'm going to smile through it all and stop being negative. And so because it's a new beginning for me, I kicked off the week with a very corporate look.
Of course I took pictures and I know I'm supposed to upload them but network is not too good here .My apologies.
Did I mention that I've been having trouble getting myself to read? Well, all that went with last week. I went to the library and tried to get some things done. It's a start even though I wasn't really concentrating. If you read About Me,you'll see I mentioned that I love reading .
I'm happier and I'm glad my 'fighting' spirit is back.
What about you? Any personal battle you won recently? Please share and remember, "Don't just go through it. Grow through it".
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to put God first and watch everything else fall into place. xxx

  2. I don't dread Monday's normally except I have to do something I don't really want to then I'll dread any day of the week, like going to the hospital for example. A day before seeing the doctor, I can't even bring myself to sleep. Anyway I enjoyed reading this post...X

A Literary Conversation | JANUARY

I love and enjoy reading and this year, I decided to read with more intent. Much more than the knowledge gained, the vocabulary that becomes expanded and the numerous places I travel to from reading books, I decided to actually journal about my reading activities this year and also write out lessons learnt from each book.

I read at a pace of one book a week so that should be about 4 books a month except when a book has too many pages and I have to go through it in two weeks. I actually belong to a book club but because I already had a book I wanted to start the year with, I couldn't follow the reading schedule from the onset of the month so I decided to just freestyle it for the month of January. The books I read are

1. You Have A Brain - Dr Ben Carson
2. Adored - Tilly Bagshawe
3. Small Great Things - Jodi Picoult
4. The Great Gatsby - - F. Scott Fitzgerald
To Kill A Mockingbird  - Harper Lee
    The Tumour - John Grisham

A Literary Conversation | FEBRUARY

Don't you just love how February flew by quickly? I definitely do and it came with lots of fun and of course, reading.. It feels just like yesterday when I published this POST  on the books I read in January and now it's time to write about the ones in February.
As there's only 28 days in February, I actually thought I'd be able to complete only 3 books but I'm typing this on the 26th day and I was able to go through 5 books! It however isn't in the numbers but in how each book eventually makes one a better person.

Enough digression, I initially planned to read mature romance novels because month of love but after the way the first book I read made me feel, I changed course immediately and went on to read other genres touching topics ranging from racism, colonialism to holocaust stories to a young adult medical fiction and even a children's storybook!

1. STILL ME - Jojo Moyes

If you've seen the movie 'Me Before You' or read the book, then you&#…

A Literary Conversation|MARCH

Unlike in February when I had a theme of books to read, in March, I did not. I just randomly compiled books I assumed I would enjoy and I enjoyed all 4.

1. THE KITE RUNNER - Khaled Hosseini
This book guys, would swallow you up. It's actually a very sad book and I expected this because I've read a book by the same author where I almost shed tears but this blew my imaginations. You know, at some point I just stopped mid sentence and wondered for the umpteenth time how one person could be so talented and make so many emotions come up with words! I actually felt like I've never read before. Lol.

PLOT: This book was set in Afghanistan and the protagonist is Amir who lost his mother immediately after she gave birth to him and who throughout his childhood tried hard to win his father's love while also having fun with his best friend, Hassan who is also the son of his father's servant. Amir watches Hassan being bullied and abuse…
