When You Start

When You Start

By Rogers Wanambwa

When you start, it is an exciting time. The thrill of adventure into a new prospect. Be it business, school, relationships among other things.

However, life happens along the way and it reaches a time whereby you ask yourself what you are doing why you are doing it amongst other questions.

It is then that you need the most motivation. It is then that you need to revisit the reasons why you began in the first place.

Whatever happens, it is important to finish what you started. An aspect of life that many people of this generation seem to lack, for lack of a better word (pan intended).

Many are willing to jump ship at the slightest hint of inconvenience. But how do you expect to get far when you are restarting all the time?

Apart from birthday and graduation ceremonies, it is becoming increasingly rare to attend anniversary ceremonies.

If I’m wrong, when did you last attend one?

We seem to want to get there without moving. Ironic as it is.

You see, just as the Earth keeps rotating, so should we keep advancing. There’s something that you can do or add on. You just need to think outside the norm.

All in all, when you start, see things through.

Flowers and Apologies

Apology, Sorry

By Rogers Wanambwa

The past few days have been ridiculously busy for me. I am not exaggerating. I have been functioning on autopilot it appears.

Now, I could go into details on what exactly was happening but that’s not the topic for today.

Let’s rather see what happens when you simply don’t take a break and start doing things on impulse.

Things you would have otherwise not done when sane.

I ended up doing something that pissed off a close friend. They had implicitly expressed their dislike of the same to me sometime back.

Why did I do it? I also can’t say. It seems silly now.

So, here I was apologizing in the middle of the night. Lol. Anyway, good thing I was forgiven.

But hey, some people are not as forgiving.

Same night, I piss someone else off. This time I was lost for words. Up to now, only words were “I’m sorry.”

Yours truly is still waiting for forgiveness.

In hindsight, I could have just gone to sleep early. But I still had a few pending works to finish.

The dilemma.

Perhaps if we don’t make split second decisions on simple things as well as important matters when tired, and angry too or overexcited, we are better off.

Some lessons are simply learnt the hard way.

And that will be all for today. Unless you want to tell your story below.

On the Table

On the Table

By Rogers Wanambwa


So I am writing this while in a taxi at 8 pm heading back home and must tell you it is not fun. The traffic jam has been ridiculously terrible which makes me wonder where all these be coming from at this time!


Wait, I am one of those. Anyway, I digress.


Today, I am going to talk about how people from all walks of life find themselves on the same table in the most random (or not so random) of events.


Take, for example, last year throughout November and December, I happened to meet over 250 MPs and over 50 Judicial Officers (Justices, Judges, and Magistrates) and we discussed some crucial life-changing issues.


This event may seem random or very important or maybe not but it happened.


Perhaps one day I will talk about the situation I was in while all this was happening. Not today though.


Today, I am talking about how we find ourselves on the same table with the most random of people, sometimes in the most random of places.

Like how a boy who was told he would not be able to finish Ordinary Level, or High School for some, could be doing a Masters Degree, which is his third course at university.


It is crazy for example, that Peter would be in the same click as John! And that their leader was Jesus Christ. Odd alliances for sure.


As a believer, I fathom that these things are predestined to happen. That no matter what or how, if you were meant to be on the table of opportunities, you will find yourself there. It is only a time before it happens.


That’s all for today. Bit what do you think? Comment below.
