Wellness over attention 

Over the last week I’ve had a terrible cold, my voice was gone and sometimes I would have coughing fits. At work my colleagues showed concern and kept checking on me and I must admit it was rather satisfying. Yesterday, I struggled with a non-stop cough and mum recommended to have some ginger.  Just the word[…]

…of overcoming rejection. 

You were 7 when you visited your cousin, your aunt locked your cousins in the house and gave them bacon, eggs and bread buttered on both sides. She gave you a stick times 4 your height and told you to look for mangoes in the tree if you are hungry. It was early December, you[…]

Are your dreams on life support? 

Last year I wrote a post called they are taking about you! (http://www.thescarletromance.com/they-are-talking-about-you/ ) Quick update after a year plus, we did take my cousin to a better school but she is back in the village again. She failed and wasted the opportunity. Everyone was angry, I was angry too but it was the beginning[…]

But where does food come from? Supermarket?? 

I was on video call with my sister when she asked Malachi (my 4 year old friend) what he wants from Zimbabwe. Since this little man likes roasted peanuts, I asked him if he wanted nyii. (That’s what he calls peanuts). He said ” No nyii is from Gogo’s house”  Language lessons first shall we[…]

He said he loved me too soon …

I wanted him to know me first, I mean like really know me. Some people had told him good things about me, some not so good. He said I was beautiful and that he loved me …. I guess we all want to hear these words, but I was offended. Insulted rather. One could not[…]

Dear mothers of the next generation. 

I have had pretty much the same friends since I was 13. And we had a pretty similar routine. Morning sirene used to make us all jump out of bed at 05:30 and at night we would giggle in the dark after 21:00hrs light outs. We had the same meals, same lessons, same teachers and[…]

Like a well watered garden.

End of May this year we moved into a new house, we were standing in the garden, my mother and I when she pointed where she intends to put her new vegetable garden. It was in the middle of the garden, the previous tenants had burnt their junk on that patch, consequently burning the lawn[…]

Like coconut oil! 

A couple of months back, while encouraging my cousin to use coconut oil for her 8 year old’s eczema, we started joking about how coconut oil literally solves all your problems. “Can even heal a heart break”, my other cousin joined in the banter. The 8 year old went back to her house and was[…]

Plan with the transfigured God.

I am the type of girl who loves planning. I know what i am going to do with my summer. I pretty much have my whole life planned haha, my heart skipped a bit when we were singing power of your love (by Hillsong) one Sunday. One phrase caught my attention, and actually caught me[…]
