New Dawn

This is the post excerpt.



Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.

It is while you are patiently toiling at the little tasks of life that the meaning and shape of the great whole of life dawn on you.This happens  to be that dawn for me. Sometimes  things happen, things that make you forget who you are for a moment, things that derail you. When that happens, be sure to get up, dust yourself and remember who  you are.For it’s said, if you fall seven times, get up eight times.

Well, let me tell you all a little bit about myself. My name is Nelly Stella, forever 18yrs old๐Ÿ˜Š,fashion enthusiast and obviously a blogger. I have started this blog to write majorly about my personal style and other  topics revolving  around my daily endeavors. I am looking  forward to sharing much more with you all๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š cheers!

Did i mention that i love posing๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜

work hard play hard.
Untill next time,chao…

Let the dead bury themselves

Remember that one thing you loved and lost? That one pretty dress ,the best in your closet that you lost in the hanging lines? How did it feel? Deep inside you knew right there and then that it was gone but hoped that you somehow, could trace it and have it back.  
I remember  some years back, on   one of those idle sunday afternoons,my friend and i embarked on a journey to Ngara for some shopping. After going up and down the stores, we found pretty jumpsuits that were way off our budget. Back then, jumpsuits were the in thing and these ones were the mother of them all .The price was too high we had to make a few calls to buy them(yes they were that pretty and that expensive).We eventually  bought the matching jumpsuits and i couldn’t  wait to rock mine.

The following sunday, i wore mine and it true to my imagination, i looked magnificent in it. I was totally in love with it but guess what?I wore it only that once and lost it.All the effort i had made to buy it, i spent all my pocket money on it, all the imaginations i had of us *me and the friend* rocking it in one of our escapades, I felt so bad and stupidly hoped i would find it๐Ÿ˜ข.I say stupidly because anyone that has stayed in K. U hostels knows that it’s almost impossible. Once you lose an item there, its dead and gone. Well, after a few weeks of hoping, i came into terms with the fact that i wasn’t ever gonna find it. Me and my best friend were never going to rock the matching  outfits. 

That’s exactly how it should be with everything  else we lose.we fall in love so deep, and in the blink of an eye we lose ‘the one’.If you are a travel the world enthusiast  like me, you may have pictured yourself in the city of love with him/her. Watching the Eiffel Tower,locking down your love at Pont des Arts bridge,you may have already named your children, bought a pet in your mind ,all these dreams are shattered, you have to bury them and dream all over again. sometimes it gets hard to come into terms with the fact that all you ever imagined is dead and gone. We secretly hope that they come back. That one day, everything goes back to how it was and we get to live our dream, but more often than not, it’s never the case. It’s like that awesome  bracelet  that you lost, like that pet that died, its never coming  back.

The earlier you accept  the fact the better. The earlier you bury the dreams you had, and the feelings  that came with the relationship, the better. For its never coming back.And if it does, not in the same way that it was. So just forget that one and move on. Just the way you may lose a shirt, and replace it but not with exactly the same one you had. The same way you may lose a cat, and buy another one but it won’t be the same one that you had. 

Do not mourn for too long, accept  the fact that it is over, and that will be for your own good. Let the dead bury themselves, and move on with your life.

โ€œSome of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.โ€ โ€“ Hermann Hesse

A journey to a thousand miles starts with a single step.

Start where you are, Start with what you have, for Procrastination is the thief of time.

Today i look at so many things i have always  wanted to do, 

that i kept postponing, and wonder where i would be if i did them then,

So many times we come up with excuses as to why we can’t do it now, “i don’t  have this, i don’t have that,” 

But the thing is, as long as you are breathing, you  can do it if you want to. 

Everyone one has their humble beginnings. Even the most successful  people  in the world didn’t  have it all when they started.

I choose to do it now, for i do not know what tomorrow  holds. Join me and lets all do it. 

Chase your dreams, chase your goals, hold your head up high and look the world into the eye. 

I can do it, you can do it!

Watch the space…!
