About Joseph And Joshua And The American Dream

The American Dream

You see, when I first came to America, the land of the brave and the mighty, full of opportunity and freedom!

I thought, I was going to have it all. The good lifestyle.

A big house by the beach. Fast cars. A fat bank account. Pretty women. Designer underwear.

You know, all the easy good stuff… I mean, is that not what the American dream is all about?

  • Freedom,
  • Equality and the,
  • Pursuit of happiness

Little did I know... that in as little as 10 years later,

I’ll be depressed. Broke – drowning in debt. Frustrated. Confused and barely able to keep that little flicker of hope that...everything is possible in America.

That if you work hard and smart, you can do it!

Land Of The Free And The Brave

Hi there! My name is Joseph and my last name is Nyamache, I know, that is a hard one. I hear it all the time.

That is why my friends call me Joe and if there happens to be another Joseph around, then by default they call me Little Joe. Of course, you’ve guessed why….I’m short and very cute (but do I say) Anyway, more about that later.

Let me tell you my story.

I will tell you little bit about my self, what I stand for and why we started this blog.

Hopefully, in the coming days, months or years...we may get to know each other well.

Coming to America 7 Fast Moving Days

  • Sunday

A long, long-time ago on a cold Sunday morning at about six o'clock, I received a call.

The call was from my little sister in America.  I thought to my self “this is so early in the morning. It must be an important call”. Well, spoiler alert! It was indeed an important call that changed the projection of my life.

The conversation was sweet and short. I had to take a bus to the city and proceed to the American embassy for my immigration interview. Back in the day, I was good at following instructions.

And so instructions, I followed!

  • Monday

I packed a few necessities and took the earliest bus to Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya.

  • Tuesday

Half of the day was spend putting together all the necessary documentation for the interview.

The other half of the day was spend dreaming, worrying and rehearsing. Do you really know how it is such a big deal to go to the U.S embassy? I'm telling you, one moment you're thrilled about the possibilities and a few minutes later, you're terrified and worried asking yourself what if your application is denied!

  • Wednesday

This is the day that changed my life. So young. Too innocent. Thrust out into a far, far-away land.

Outside the Embassy was a little chaotic, to say the least.

I had no idea, so many people want to go to America! Lucky for me, the stars were aligned and the beautiful lady sitting across the counter instructed me to come back the next day to pick up my visa.

  • Thursday

Picked up my visa and it was time to say a few goodbyes and cry like a little baby!

I know. A man is supposed to man up! Hold up emotions, put up a brave face and stand up tall. Even when you know deep down you are dying. Well, deep down I was dying and I cried like a little baby...

  • Friday

I packed and cried some more...And you think saying goodbye's to your loved one is that easy!

Wait until it hits you!

That you're going to a far-far away land that your ancestors knew nothing about! Until then, you tell me...

  • Saturday

Finally, I boarded a flight to America. I arrived on Sunday. It was summer time, but I knew nothing about summer time! So my life started in America, learning a new way of life and adjusting to a new everything.

Two weeks later September 2001. For millions of people living in American, life changed.

What is the meaning of life?

Say it! This life, this world is not just about money, politics, relationships...

Neither is it about power, success, failure or cut throat competition.

It’s not about worrying about tomorrow's problems and by passing today’s blessings.

This world is not about ...ah... and the list goes on and on...

For a moment forget about all that endless list...take a dip breath, relax... breath in...out ...easy, steady now, e-e-e-easy...Are we okay? Are we on the same page?

Alright then, hurry! Hurry! Buckle up and-on-your marks, get ready and let's go.

What Is The Meaning Of Life?
  • How To Be Happy With Yourself

How To Be Happy

This world, this life is about...

Finding yourself. Understanding yourself. Loving your self. And being content and happy within yourself.

For how can you love another, if you love not yourself? How can you relate and understand others, if you don't know yourself? And how can you genuinely make other people around you happy if you're not happy yourself.

And there my friend is what I call my revised Version of the dream.

Honesty, Integrity and Justice form part of and are embroiled in the Dream.

Otherwise, it's just a big fat lie...chasing the wind. Puffing and chasing the wind!
