What is your take on passion?

As many of you are already aware, I am a strong believer in the power of passion. I am convinced that to be highly productive and find fulfillment, passion needs to be at the core. In cultivating our passion we remain inspired and motivated. As a result we could achieve great results.
Next Monday we will be returning to the Mentor of the Month interview. This week we are taking a slight detour to explore other as fun topics.

Follow the Glow

Follow the glow in your eyes
Wherever it leads, wherever it thrives,
Cause if you won’t, swift come your demise
Of endless strivings and restless butterflies;
That light that flickers when you do what you like
That passion ignited when you do what feels right;
So when life at times is pulling you here and there
Don’t forget to remember about what you care
For keep your eyes forward and straight on the goal
And then you won’t stop from staying aglow.

365 Days And Counting..

Yesterday, Memoirs of a Kenyan reached it’s one year mark. I am excited to share this moment with you.

I’ve always been a dreamer. And writing, for as long as I can remember, has been central to me.

Memoirs of a Kenyan is a dream. A dream that’s being realized. A dream that continues to explore its avenues and to expand.

At Memoirs of a Kenyan, we believe in dreaming, but we also encourage you to work on those dreams.

Stay tuned for a recap highlighting lots of the fun stuff we’ve been up to throughout the year!
