I was sitting in a holding room at a Plaza, waiting to see my Doctor so that he could advise me on what the next nine months in my life would look like. I had just found out I was pregnant! I was giddy, overwhelmed, flustered. I could not stop grinning. I thought this would be me sometime in 2016, but as the saying goes, life is what happens when you are making other plans.
As I waited for the Doctor to read me my full test results, it dawned on me that the last eight years of my life have been such a roller coaster. Getting into media, working in Kenya then South Africa, moving back home, starting a Business, then a Foundation, reconnecting with someone who would later become my husband…a LOT! I was on a full on journey and just could not predict what the next few weeks, let alone months, would look like. I decided then and there that I was going to embark on something I had been holding off on doing for years…starting a Blog!
I have always been super guarded, that is just my nature. But I have decided to lift the lid on my fears, my aspirations, my passion, my life. By sharing my story, I hope I can empower someone out there to dream, to dare to be different and to embrace life's ups and downs, because they will always be there! One's journey is always their destination…I have no idea where it will lead me next. I have made my plans but I am leaving it all in God's hands, because He has His own plans for me.
Janet's Thoughts will offer you an insight into what I am thinking, whether it is my views on a topical issue or some of my poetry and prose or maybe just my thoughts that day.
Inua Dada will showcase the work my Foundation is doing to empower and uplift the lives of girls and children in Kenya.
My videos will chronicle the different projects I have embarked on and continue to pursue.
So thank you for being here and reading my blog! Please interact with me and let me know what's on your mind as well. Let's do this!
