Delicate Balance

Delicate Balance

Have you ever been in a situation where you have to tread carefully or the repercussions are dire?

Where you have to maintain a delicate balance in everything you do or touch?

It is curious how life brings such occasions into our lives or those around us.

You find that all of you have to look out or things will fall apart.

And yet, amidst all this, what is certain is that all things come and go. That is a definite fact.

Perhaps, this can be our comforter, knowing that nothing on Earth is permanent. Good or bad.

Yes, I know how that sounds too. But there’s a saying in Luganda that “Ekijja omanyi, kinyaga bitono.”

Loosely translated, “Trouble that comes with your knowledge destroys little.”

This can be applied to everything in life. The second, third, and fourth waves of #COVID19, the next economic downturn, the next death, and so on.

Even closer to home issues like losing a long-time friend over an argument. Or divorce.

It’s that thin line that we walk on, trying to maintain a semblance of sanity everyday. Even as the world burns literally, like the fires in Greece and other countries going on right now.

Arranged Marriage

Arranged Marriage: What do you think of it?

Did you know that arranged marriages remain the biggest form of marriage in the world?

They constitute 55% of marriages that happen across the globe today. In India, the rate of arranged marriage is 90%. However, in some countries, the man or the woman can reject the chosen spouse. 6.3% is the divorce rate of arranged marriages globally.

But how about you? Today I want to know what my readers think about arranged marriages and marriages in general.

The Time (Where Does it go to?

On time and time management

Of recent, and when I say recent, I mean the past couple of years, time seems to be moving faster than ever before.

Have you noticed how the past two months literally flew by?

It is scary to think of where we are headed! On second thought, as a believer, maybe not so much.

After all, wouldn’t that mean we’re nearing the rapture?

But I digress.

What I wanted to ponder about from here today is the fact that you have to work twice or even thrice as faster and more intentionally if you are to achieve anything in these seemingly shorter days.

If you don’t get moving, you may rudely be awakened one of these days and you are old!

I know, I know. We will all grow old one day. But, before then, what will. you have accomplished?

This question keeps popping up in my head at random moments and it keeps me at my toes.

In end, what really matters is how many we have impacted. How many lives we have changed for the better.

To me, that’s a legacy worth living behind. Something that can’t let you rest well considering how fast the time flies by, right?

Then again, this may just be me feeling insecure. What do you think? Comment below.

Imbalu (Rite to Manhood)

Fashion and Culture: On Imbalu, one of the last standing customary rites in Uganda

For some reason, I have spent the better part of this week castigating us as Africans for ditching something wonderful.

However, I wrote about something that one of my tribes holds dear and esteemed.

Please check out the article from last year’s #WinterABC2020 even as we come closer to finishing this year’s #WinterABC2021.
