The TV sensation cum mother/ wife/ Fashionista and philanthropist Janet Mbugua proclaimed that she’s tired, jaded and discouraged proving to us mortals that she’s one of us.
Not tired of her husband of course ( look at you!) but of her many roles.
She made this realization when she was called upon to do a presentation at the Karen Country Club on women empowerment and she realized she couldn’t do it.(something most of us go through)
“A FEW DAYS BEFORE THIS PRESENTATION I TOOK A MOMENT TO REFLECT. I REALIZED THAT I WANTED TO START OVER, TO RE-ALIGN MYSELF SO THAT I CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH MY PROJECTS WITH CLARITY. I REALIZED I’M TIRED, JADED AND DISCOURAGED, FEELING LIKE I’VE BEEN TAKING ON TOO MUCH AT THE SAME TIME. TO TOP IT ALL OF, I’M RAISING A NEW FAMILY AND RUNNING A HOME. I’M BURNT OUT. BUT I’M GLAD I KNOW, SO THAT I CAN FIX IT. AND FIXING IT FOR ME BEGINS WITH GOING BACK TO MY PASSION PROJECTS, WHERE MY FIRE BURNS MOST. THAT AND TAKING A BREAK WITH BABY HURU AND BABA HURU, WHICH IS IN THE WORKS ” She narrated in her blog.
“I’VE REALIZED THAT SOMETIMES IT’S OK TO GO BACK TO BASICS. IT’S OK TO FEEL FRUSTRATED AND JADED AS LONG AS YOU CAN GET TO THE ROOT CAUSE AND BEGIN WORKING IT OUT. IT’S OK NOT TO BE OK…SOMETIMES. AS LONG AS YOU’RE WILLING TO FIX IT. PEOPLE AROUND YOU MAY NOT UNDERSTAND IT BUT THAT’S FINE, BECAUSE YOU NEED TO BE HEALTHY FOR YOU BEFORE YOU CAN BE HEALTHY FOR OTHERS.”
