Things I Learnt In 2016

So 2016 is gone, but it left me with lots of wisdom packaged as lessons, a year that I truly loved!

It came with its challenges but as they say, what’s life without challenges? Challenges are what makes life interesting; overcoming them is what makes them meaningful.

That the purpose of life is to serve God, through serving others and that is best accomplished by knowing your gift/ passion and touching peoples’ lives through it. We all have gifts, if only we looked deeper.

That many times we get tangled and lost in ways of life (could be responsibilities, work, family etc) and forget who we are, we forget to appreciate and take care of ourselves.

That at times bad things happen to pave way to good things; don’t curse every bad situation that comes your way.

That inner peace is such an amazing experience that every human deserves a right to experience.

That the power of mind is a magical tool that we all have and can use it to shape our destiny. There are no limits to our dreams; a dream is the one thing that a prince and a pauper share. Stretch your mind, we call that FAITH.

That there is nothing too small or silly to pray about.

That you don’t have to beat yourself too much over failures; just raise up, dust yourself and keep walking-like Johny walker..

That reading books is actually interesting (not just for passing exams) and apart from making your vocabulary sound ‘intelligent’ , it opens up your mind.

That you need to be comfortable and complete, on your own. You are your own world.

That ‘ FRIENDS’ is a very relative term.

That in whatever you do, give it your best; you never know who is watching and drawing inspiration from you.

That you will never fly if you keep standing at the edge of the cliff; you’ve got to jump!

That admitting you need some help doesn’t make you weak in any way; we all need help at some point.

That being you, is a breath of fresh air in paradise!

All White Affair

All white affairs have become a fad in the recent times. From weddings, to dinners, bridal and baby showers, name them. The dress code is expected to be white, from head to toe. It is important to have several pieces of white in your wardrobe that can make several combinations of outfit. You don’t want to be wearing the same white outfit in all the events. White is best accessorized with gold or silver.

I attended Diner En Blanc last weekend which was quite a new experience for me. It is a worldwide event, a picnic sort of dinner under the moonlight with a strictly white dress code. You carry your own proper dinner food, all courses and proper dinning ware, not plastics and set up your own table. I was awed by the table settings; people went all out with flowers, candles,center pieces, table decorations and it was magnificent! The attires were jaw dropping! Everyone made an effort to look stunning and the men did not disappoint. I am looking forward to the next one.

Always have a white outfit ready, you never know when an all-white affair invitation will fly your way!

Retro

I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight,
I’ve never seen you shine so bright,
I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance,
They’re looking for a little romance, given half a chance,
And I have never seen that dress you’re wearing,
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes,
I have been blind;

The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek,
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me,
It’s where I want to be,
But I hardly know this beauty by my side,
I’ll never forget the way you look tonight;

……..

Found myself humming to this song over and over again as i uploaded these pics, never mind that the dress might be orange to some people and not red, and no, there was no dance at night we just did a photo shoot; or maybe i need that dance….

Going back to the 80’s with that super Afro look and a skater dress! SLAY-AGE!
