Getting Unstuck

Some days ago, I received news that crashed me. It was something I had worked hard towards, something I believed with all my heart, and it all ended in one rejection letter. It was painful. Imagine my horror when I decided to share this bad news to a friend, and they kicked me whilst I […]

Modesty Inspiration – Sister Tariro

My favorite thing about social media is how it connects us to people all over the globe; especially ones with the same interests and values like yours. Instagram has helped me gain some really beautiful friends. One of them is Sister Tariro, a bright, cheerful sister from Zambia 🙂 We started talking when we found […]

Withered Roses

So the past week has been another tough week for me. I was ill and didn’t leave the house for a couple of days (come to think of it, all my recent posts have been about sickness. I promise my life is much more than the illnesses that attack me *smiles shyly*). Anyway. I went […]

The Bathroom Floor

I wrote this piece some weeks back and debated whether I should post it or not but I’ve been told to talk about these kind of experiences more, because that will somehow disempower some fears we have, such as death and dying. This is me at my most vulnerable, trying time. I know a lot […]

Journey to “Chikondi” Album

2018: Yearly Round-up

If you asked me to describe 2018 in the shortest way possible, I would say it was slow, but it went by so fast. Do I even make sense? Anyway, here’s a round-up of all things 2018. Top 5 places I visited: One January morning, mom woke me up to drive her to Jokala because […]

My path as a Message Believer

I’ve thought about writing on this topic for a while – actually, years – and I’ve fought it for so long. This is because this is something very personal and I worried that some people may misunderstand me or call me a fanatic… ongozitengela or okokomeza. But I am finally writing about this simply because […]

Leadership

I wrote a thread on leadership on Twitter some weeks back, and it got the attention that I wasn’t expecting. Several people said it was insightful, so I thought of sharing it here. So a friend of mine and I were talking and we happened to get into the topic of some harmful leadership habits. […]

The Grass was Fine

Some few weeks back, there was a day I was supposed to attend two events. I was excited and had worked hard towards the day. It finally arrived, and I had a grand time. The pictures I posted on social media that day got the attention of one of my friends, “wow Faith, I really […]
