Senya is my first and Christian name. An Ewe name meaning God knows, given to me by my Godmother. The necklace in the picture was a gift from her on my 30th birthday, so I took this picture just in case I ever part with the necklace.
I was at the lowest point in my life when this picture was taken. Nothing shows that I woke up in tears at midnight through to 3am, cooked plain rice and made kokonsa* stew then back to bed. The lady you see there is my little sister, who decided that we have a pre birthday lunch because I insisted on having a quiet birthday. Everyone needs a Maame Esi in their lives.
Here is a picture of me taken by a colleague in the office. I was literally sleeping on the job but my boss didn’t complain. Why do I like this?
1. I look so peaceful
2. It reminds that it’s okay to take a break whenever you feel the need to. I tend to worry a lot about anything and this is a reminder that when life feels like it’s going too fast, I can take a break. When I’m tired, it’s okay to take a break too. Besides, God rested on the seventh day.
Mummmyyyyy!! Do I really need to explain this? She’s my rock!!
My faithful companion. Anytime I hop on a bus or plane, she comes along. If she could talk, she would tell me to slow down on my spontaneous trips.
