Proud to be a dreamer :)

Dream catcher,from Native Americans

                                                      I am a dreamer 🙂   

image

Yeap,I’m a proud dreamer 🙂 I dream a looot!!!! Any time,anywhere,about almost anything  😀 I’m sure I’m not the only one!!!! This world is full of dreamers just like me. We have big dreams,bigger than anybody can imagine…..we wanna change the world with these dreams of ours 🙂 Some think our dreams are too bizarre,crazy,impossible  o_O but the heck do they now???? We are proud dreamers 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

image

I’m proud to be a dreamer coz dreamers are great…..I mean think about it,all great people were dreamers check out Martin Luther King Jr.,Leonardo Da Vinci,Albert Einstein  😉 😀 (I loooooove history y’all 🙂 🙂 🙂 ) All the great achievements of all time started with a dream,a crazy dream,a dream that would change the world but seemed impossible to reach…..how the hell did man start thinking of flying???? Crazy,right??? 😀 lol

image

I can only imagine if I were the Wright brothers and I told my friends that I wanted to build a plane….they’d call me crazy!!!!!

image

But dreamers never give up on their dreams no matter what the world thinks 🙂 no dream is ever too big or too crazy or bizarre for a dreamer  🙂

image

Dreams make life more happy,more hopeful,more interesting 🙂 If we all just lived life without dreaming of what we’d want our future to be like….life would really   suck,right??? Life itself is short,soooo short that we cannot afford to not dream,to not chase these dreams till we catch them….
       We don’t have an eternity
        to realise our dreams
          only the time we are
             here -Susan L.Taylor
Dreamers are brave and courageous because they dare to dream the big dreams which  others are too afraid to!!!

image

        Dreams come in a size too
         big so we can grow into them
              -Josie Bisset 🙂

image

        The only place where your
         dream becomes impossible
          is in your own thinking
            -Robert H. Schuller.

Brave enough to get out of bed every morning and make those dreams come

image

true 🙂

     Don’t say you don’t have  
     enough time. You have exactly
     the same hours in a day given
     to Hellen Keller,Louis Pasteur,
     Michaelangelo,Mother Teresa,
     Leonardo da Vinci,Thomas
     Jefferson and Albert Einstein
        -H.Jackson Brown,jr.
Some of my big dreams are owning my own PR firm and being a big name,kinda like Olivia Pope from Scandal(OMG who else loves this series like me???? man I love that lady,but thats a story for another day 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 ) and I wake up everyday wanting to reach that dream 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 etc

image

Sometimes dreamers get carried away by their dreams and they end up forgetting their present.   Be careful not to forget your now while dreaming of your tomorrow(I just came up with that,future Einstein here,lol) 😀 😀

Keep on dreaming dreamers 🙂
Lovely day 🙂
Love Tess,the dreamer 🙂

Pursuit of happiness :) O_o

image

                    
Ever watched the movie Pursuit of happiness by Will Smith and his son??? I think I must have watched it like 20 times….and
I didn’t quite get it till I

image

Yeap,that's the one...

watched it the 3rd time 😀
So Will Smith and his son go through a whirlwind of hardship,in pursuit of happiness(meen I think I cried 3 times in each of the 20times I’ve watched it :D).
In the end,the guy ends up a millionaire after betting the right stocks(is that how they put it?? Somebody school me please) at Wallstreet…..what a happy ending right???? If only everybody had an ending like that…..but everybody’s happy ending depends on their view of happiness :):en

image

I swear aki!!! 😀

🙂 🙂 🙂
So man has been pursuing this alien called happiness since the beginning of time!!! All these years and he hasn’t

image

Watch out happiness,Im coming for you 🙂 🙂

found
it yet??
Makes it
look like
happiness is elusive 😦 😦
Does money guarantee happiness?? (Well,if you think about it,it kinda does,lol,but thats beside the point) Once you’re done with all your paper chasing,will you find happiness too???? Does it come automatically with money??
Are we chasing the wrong things to give us happiness??? Fame…..lots of friends….love,money,money and love o_O ????

image

Chase the right things...

Or maybe
we’re chasi
ng too hard,
looking too
hard,in the wrong places….when happiness is right under our noses????

Trying hard to copy someone else’s way of being happy yet we’re all different. For instance,I derive happiness from solitude…I just lock myself in a dark room,turn off the lights and meditate(weird I know but thats my way).

Family and friends make me happy too. You don’t have to go out pursuing happiness when you got family,or friends as tight as family. That feeling of being at home is happiness for sure 🙂 🙂 🙂

Happiness should not be pursued far and wide,its easy to find it. Its t

he little thing
s in life that
make us happy.

You don’t have to have everything in life to be happy 🙂 I think that when we’re busy pursuing happiness,we tend to miss the things that give us true hap

piness in life,the
people who make u
s truly happy….

But if you feel that you actually do need to pursue happiness in order to be happy,then chase it with all you got and let nobody get in your way 🙂 🙂
To me,the ultimate happiness is living your dream 🙂 that great feeling of satisfaction you get when you’ve made your drea

So why don’t you go out there and pursue your happi

Mums and Dads are gods :)

image

     
Parents are gods…..I mean seriously think about it (they can even create life,right?? But lets not take away the credits from  the Most High) Mums and dads are gods to us kids. We idolize them,we think highly of them,in our eyes,they can do no wrong right??? They are super powerful and they hold all the cards don’t they??? Yeap,all of us have felt that way about our mums and dads at one point in our lives,whether at tender ages,or in our teens(though some might disagree) or later in life….but we do idolize our pare

image

nts
Gods are powerfull!!!! And so are parents. They got the power,whether we like it or not. Ever heard the phrase ” as long as its my house you’re living in,you’ll do what I say” ?? I know I have,one two many times!!!! They always have the upper hand and thats ju

image

Zeus,greek god of the sky and head of Olympus.

st how it is

O_o
Im obsessed with greek mythology,its crazy!!!!! 😀

They punish us too,like gods,and booooy are they good at it!!!!! 😦 ;( Once in a while we become naughty or just decide to bend some rules here and there just for the heck of it…..end result = trouble!!! Growing up,my mum was the typical African mum….she beat the crap out us and knocked some sense it us as well 😀 we couldn’t stay mad at her because she is mum and mum is god. In the end,we love her still and boy have we grown to be proper.

image

When I was a kid,I believed that my dad was the coolest guy ever!!!! Like he was superman and batman and all superheroes!!!

image

Superdad!!!

combined!!!

image

Batdad!!!

Okay,Im a geek,I looove superhero flicks 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

😀
Im sure this line is quite familiar “my dad is stronger than yours,my dad can beat your dad with a blindfold” sigh,childhood naivety,lol 😀 😀 😀 And when you’re scared you hold your dad’s  hand because you know he’s gonna protect you….because he is a god 🙂 🙂 🙂

image

Poseidon,greek god of the seas!

And when mums and dads fall sick,its unbelievable because how can they??? They are gods!!!! They can’t be sick.

And when they disappoint us….we wonder …how?? And when they actually do wrong….we question again,how??
And when they leave us unfortunately,we get angry because gods don’t leave,they stay forever 😦  😦  😦
Then we remember,they are human…they have feelings…they make mistakes….they leave us too!!!
But we still love them and idolize them and hold them highly because they are our gods 🙂 🙂 🙂

Let your mums and dads know that you love them,atleast once in a while. Remember their birthdays even if they can’t. Do something nice for them on mothers and fathers day 🙂 Make them feel like gods 😉 🙂

My gods 🙂

Here’s an old photo of my mummy and daddy 🙂

Don’t hide the madness o_O

    “Follow your inner moonlight,don’t hide the madness” -Allen Ginsberg.  

Through all my years of studying people(okay Im not a professor or anything),I have come to realise that everybody is crazy o_O  Yeap,mad,insane,loco,kookoo,bananas lol

image

To some degree,everybody is crazy somehow. Crazy in different ways. Weird,insane,abnormal,you name it!!!! But not everybody is proud of their madness. They hide it from the world because they are ashamed of it 😦 😦 😦  or worse,afraid of what others will say about them….but Dr.Tess says that crazy is actually good for you 🙂 🙂 🙂 there’s nothing shameful about pure madness

image

Cha cha cha!!!!

First of all,crazy people enjoy life more. Once you’re crazy or a weirdo,you simply don’t care….you can unleash your crazy anywhere and simply be yourself…a restaurant,a queue,a bus or public transportation you name it!!!

image

Crazies are everywhere : D

Crazy people make the world a better place. Heck,they save lives everyday,prevent genocide and  World War lll from taking place……okay maybe I went a bit overboard there 😀 but imagine if everybody was normal and we had no weird friends who dance in the streets when then hear their favourite song….tragedy!!!

image

I just can't with this pic,lol

Well,not everybody can fully embrace their crazy and show the whole world. Thats why I like to think that Crazy is a gift. That weird friend who cracks everybody up. Who is just weird and comfortable its scary. But without them we’d probably die of stress from our daily lives….

image

Embrace your crazy,be confident with your weirdness because its unique,its different,its awesome!!!

image

🙂
I’m proud to be one of the crazies coz it makes me kinda mysterious. …like it keeps people guessing “when will she turn on her crazy?” Or “OMG she doesn’t look like the crazy type.” Mystery is intriguing,but thats a story for another day 😉
If you aren’t comfortable letting your crazy out,hang out with friends who are,then you’ll feel more comfortable being crazy with them 🙂

image

Go out there and turn on your crazy today,be weird,be yourself : ) 😉 😀
I’m crazy and I love it!!!!         
Happy day beautiful people : )

Let’s be brave :)

I had been constantly wanting to try out something new,either alone or with my friends but something had always been getting in my way
image

….fear o_O

What if I fail? What if I don’t like it? What if I get hurt? What if……soooo many what ifs instead of trying it out first. Just putting myself out there and having fun. Not letting fear get the best of me

And limiting my fun…

image

What if I drown??

So I decided to go ahead and try out new stuff. I got to discover a side to myself I’ve never known and maaaan do I love it 🙂  🙂  🙂
I had wanted to start a blog but I was afraid that maybe I wouldn’t get even a single reader but so what???? I did it anyway and Im glad,Im a blogger now yeeeeeey 🙂 🙂 🙂 just step outta your comfort zone and do it’
Whatever it is you’ve always wanted to do 🙂

image

My workstation 😉

Is it cycling or just a simple bike ride??? (Coz I seriously want a bicycle for my
next
Birthday,hint hint Bae 🙂 🙂 🙂

Wh

image

Ain't she a beauty???

y not??? You think you’ll look funny on a bike?? Or people will think you’re weird or something??? I say do it anyway,its about your happiness not theirs…

Is it camping you wanna try out?? Coz I really do!! Try it out with your friends. Are you afraid of bears or snakes or…..okay,I’d be scared of snakes too o_O  There are no bears in Africa right?? But imagine the fun you’re missing out on because of your comfort zone…just look for a camping ground that has been declared safe by

the authoritiesa and you’ll be fine 🙂
Bae,are you reimage

ading this??? Lol

Next time your friends go hiking,why not tag alongimage

and have fun?

Or maybe you have been trying out something new but you’re already tired?? If you’re really into what you are doing,you won’t quit that easily. But if you did it because others were doing it,honey just stop before you waste yourself.

Perhaps you decided to start eating right or working out,but your motivation is running out?? Why did you start in the first place?? Did you want those abs that are absolutely(yeap,pun intended) irresistible?? Or that flat tummy so you can rock that crop top you bought three months ago??? Ladies y’all know what I mean

image

ABsolutely!!

Did you used to dance,paint,sing,play a certain instrument or sport and you absolutely loved doing it but now you “can’t ” because maybe your friends think its lame?? Be BRAVE!!!! Be lame then,but atleast you’ll be happy. In anycase,true friends support you no matter what!!!! Go out there and try something new,that way,you’ll have something awesome to tell your future grandkids,lol 🙂 🙂 🙂

I’ll tell them I hiked to the very top of Mount Kenya,among other things on my loooong bucket list.

image

Spectacular right????

Im giving myself a specific time limit to achieve this,you can do the same  🙂  Get  out there and be brave…..you might be amazed with what or who you’ll meet outside of your comfort zone

image

Go make some magic!!

What have you always wanted to try out or are thinking of trying out??? Leave me a comment of this great activity 🙂 🙂

Blessed Sunday beautiful people 🙂

Okay,ignore the Monday part and focus on thw cute cat 😀

Africa……oh my beautiful continent,Kenya,my wonderful motherland…..what can I say,Im in love with Africa 🙂  🙂  🙂

I am a bookie…..yeap,I read anything and everything because you can’t have too much knowledge now can you???  I’m a writer myself,though a bit of a beginner,but atleast Im trying,right???

My worst fear in life is to die having not done what I’ve always wanted to do…..travel the world,fulfill my dreams,sing my heart out etc,its a tragedy to die regreting….

Come with me through this journey as I give my perspective of life,love,music,hopes and dreams,facing our fears and living life to the fullest 🙂 🙂 :image
