Its been a minute. Today is my birthday! Aging gracefully is a beautiful thing, not to mention the freedom that comes with maturity. I feel more peaceful and I am slowly getting out of my cocoon. I am definitely wiser, stronger and with a better view of life and people’s unique journey. I am more spiritually alive and at a place of peace.

I no longer chase after friends or walk on eggshells. That is not to say I am this perfect being, I have made mistakes but I am glad they made me wiser. About my age, let’s just say we are all as young or as old as we feel. My advice to my younger self will be to not put much pressure on myself. Live my life. Be happy. Pray.

Life begins when you choose to live for you and your purpose, have a good relationship with God or with any other supreme power you believe in, it’s good for your soul. Avoid toxic people and have a positive attitude. Don’t be tempted to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders.

Do everything at the right time.Life is in stages and if you skip a stage, you will be forced to go back. I am grateful for my strong support system, friends, and family. I love you all.

I am free, I am just doing me. No stress, no pressure!

About Author

I am a Medical Underwriter in arguably one of the largest insurance companies in East Africa. It’s during this period that I emerged from my cocoon, I discovered interesting things about myself that have continually nudged me to face life with renewed radiance. I discovered my hobbies were not just sleeping and reading but I had more to offer life than I possibly thought. It’s safe to say these days I run out of time ….I love swimming, dancing, blogging, modelling and watching movies. As far as my long-term career development goals are concerned.My career goal right now is to get a chance to work as Business Developer-Health division, take up a senior management position later on and in due time become a CEO with an aim of impacting positively in the insurance industry.I plan to also study a Diploma in Insurance to add to my actuarial degree, grow in the underwriting department and get to a management position.If you are an employee,you should be shortlisting me now. When free I run a personal blog, please subscribe and get inspired by my articles. In addition, I am actively pursuing modelling at my free time. I have found interest in this field as it has helped me refine my body language and brought out additional positive aspects in my personality. Follow me on Instagram and twitter as Dollypinky_chepngetich and get to read my interesting posts which more often than not are accompanied by some good images.
