    I don’t think i will ever own a pet , i get way too attached to things,people and animals and i never take it well when anything bad happens to what i am attached to. I get very emotional and it seems that is my current state of emotions , it’s either i am very attached where i cry so much over the smallest of things or i am just numb. I am not sure it is a good thing or a bad thing.

    Few weeks back we were in Arusha with the family and my Mom got two chickens from a friend and so fast forward to last week in Dar with the chickens already part of the family, i was hanging clothes and one of the chickens happened to be near by and i think it was scared of me and it flew past me ( Yes it flew i never knew chickens could fly until we got these two.)
     So i think while it was landing it tripped and hurt its leg and *couldn’t walk , it was just lying there for two to three days doing nothing. I was so sad about it not being able to walk more than I should have been i mean one minute it was just fine and the next thing it can’t walk anymore it didn’t make sense to me but i guess that is what life really is you never know what will happen next.

    I watched Me Before You last night ( this morning since it was 4 AM) i was once again feeling like i needed to cry or get emotional . Has anyone read the book or watched the movie ? i suggest you read the book first ( read it twice and i am thinking of doing a third round soon) although the movie was good not great like the books i think you should watch it too it is a nice movie if you haven’t read the book but in all honesty movies tend to eliminate a lot and are generally underwhelming when they are based off a book for example Harry Potter, Fifty shades of Grey , Hunger Games, to mention a few. But still,watch it with your girls or alone on a Friday night and maybe **Sam Claflin’s beautiful face will make it worth the watch and maybe you are not like me but having tissues nearby won’t hurt a soul.

    You’ve done nothing, been nowhere. How do you have the faintest idea what kind of person you are? - JoJo Moyes Click To Tweet

    The movie and the book has amazing inspiring quotes and generally in one way or another you may learn a few things from the movie, this is what i learnt;

    “Some mistakes just have greater consequences than others. But you don’t have to let the result of one mistake be the thing that defines you. You, have the choice not to let that happen” ― Jojo Moyes

    *Since the chicken couldn’t do anything they had to eat him yesterday and i swore i woudnt eat the meat and i stood by my word i mean how can you ? ( i think i need to see a psychiatrist )

    ** Sam Claflin is the only Man i know who looks way better without a beard.

    Ha! this post was not supposed to be a book/movie review but i just wanted to say that we should all Live  a Life with No Regrets. Thank You for reading , have an amazing week and stay blessed.

      I watched the movie. I had seen the trailers and reviews and immediately felt that i need to watch it. I didn’t cry am glad, not that it wasn’t sad but that i was strong..i am very emotional too..i did not like the ending that he died ..somehow i wished he would stay longer n not die the way he did. I will look fr the book. This is one of the most inspiring movies i have watched so far in 2016.

        I thought so too but I guess him dying was necessary for the book to be how it was. Thank you for reading the blog,Stay blessed. Xx
