Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru is celebrating her 50th birthday today.
She shared five lessons she has learn in life.
One she says is to have an anchor. Her’s is God, she says on a social media post.
“ Life will throw you twists and turns and in those moments of turbulence the anchor holds!” she said.
The second lesson she says is to build a strong support system.
“ Family and friends who stay true and remind you of what life is truly about are invaluable. They will keep you grounded,” the second Kirinyaga governor says.
Third is to live, laugh and love. She advises you to try new things often.
“Some of my most enjoyable moments have been driving across this country, stopping at nyama joints, chats with ordinary Kenyans…all this in great company.
She said she has with her husband, Kamotho Waiganjo, they have driven to 37 counties and are hoping to cover the remaining 10 “soonest”.
Fourthly, she says she has learnt to think about generational impact.
“Make your footprint extremely clear where you are for two reasons: One for legacy and two, so that those who come after you never have to guess where to step,” she says.
Finally, she tells women and young girls: “We have lesser excuses and greater opportunities than those before us to make our voices heard. Let’s make them and future generations proud”.
