EILEEN (Mwanyiky) Thugi

I may have a hard time focusing on my present roles, losing valuable time and often not catching a wink.

My Story

 We can be our worst critics and we will kick ourselves for missing the mark, no matter how hard we tried-choosing to overlook all the things we did well. Approval is a human need, that impacts our self esteem and motivation. Sometimes, I can get hung up on the things that I have not done so well. Replaying scenes of how I could have done better, how others reacted, and what impact I may have had on others. Consequently, I may have a hard time focusing on my present roles, losing valuable time and often not catching a wink. In practice, that’s not going to change the cycle of life, time isn’t going to wait for me, nor is it going to reverse the past. Morning is going to roll in whether I feel like it or not. I have to pluck up, haul myself out of bed and get with the program.

My name is Eileen Thugi formerly Mwanyiky. I’m the author of the book “You’re Up.” I live im Massachusetts, I’m married and have two children. Like many, we try to make an impression and it matters how we perform. Our kids, spouses, our daily hobnobbing and just about every time we speak or do, we leave an impression. I’m a Registered Dental Hygienist and as one can imagine I spend time with many people, from all walks of life, and age groups. It’s a part of my identity, but I’m not my profession as I’m my passion, values, struggles, relationships, and the character I choose to play routinely. I’m a born-again Christian who takes the Word of God to be more valuable than the wisdom, knowledge and skills any profession and education can offer me. My identity is found in The LORD Jesus Christ and is a working progress, with the help of the promptings of His Holy Spirit.

I have found one motivation, and one ultimate outcome, that can get me past my foibles,
humble me, and stimulate me to get up each morning and do it again. I’m living a lifetime
performance for the Highest Glory, not my own or anyone else’s. I choose to do better, think
higher, move forward, because I’m the very work of One who is high above everything I know.
Yet willing to admit my failures, He gives more grace, and the instructions on how to dust myself up and get back at it again. You’re up each day you draw a breath, and every moment you have an audience.You or those around you are the audience. My book gives hope and renewed thinking of viewing our daily lives, routines, our encounters as a performance for a glory that is beyond our own and others.
