In this article, we let the sounds of inspiring content previously published on Qazini (content you may have forgotten about) echo and reverberate in your mind with renewed power to inspire you, challenge you, and empower you to be your absolute best.
How has your childhood impacted your adult life?
For Brian Khavalaji, the impact has been quite significant. It shaped his interests, what he does, how he relates with his parents, especially his dad, and his view of the place he is now learning to call home. His is a story of healing and forgiveness that you can read here.
You need to read more
When did you last read a book? Which book was it? Do you think reading that book added value to your life? In what ways does reading add value you your life? Mourine Odongo answers that question, giving you ten reasons why you should take reading seriously, and maybe even make it a daily habit.
Did you know…
That people are willing to do anything as long as someone else does it? For example, have you ever joined a queue not knowing its purpose just because other people were there? Well, if you have, you are not the only one. We imitate each other, from individuals to groups of people and even countries. How does this mimetic nature of human beings affect different areas of our lives? What are its pros and cons? And what do you need to learn to be bold in who you are rather than follow the leader? Eric Rugara explains it well here.
Is it really true that you have no one to talk to?
Have you had instances where you have felt that you had absolutely no one to talk to? While that is a sad thought, it is based on a lie – and maybe pride. That is the realisation that Verah Omwocha came to. And since realising that, she has changed her way of approaching and building relationships. Read the pointers she swears by here.
Good or evil?
When it comes to human beings, we try to classify ourselves as either good or evil. But from our history – with executions, genocides and other forms of violence – could we be more evil than we would like to think? What makes us commit such evils? Why would we be easily influenced to be evil? Read as Stephen Kimani expounds on this using Miligram's experiment.
Have you heard that everybody else is advancing and getting better? Don’t be left out. Even vampires evolved; the things and people that hurt us the most no longer suck blood, they suck attention. May your attention be attentive to stuff that’s lifting you. See you again next Tuesday when we run it back to more inspirational stories!
