Flavia Tumusiime continues to share inspiring stories from her life and career in the “30 days of Flavia Tumusiime” series. On day 26, she posted:
“I want to share about my faith in God. When I was in high school, I had these group of girls I was close to. They were Christians and they always took a moment to preach in school and led church projects. But I had not yet grown in faith and was looking to them to see how I can get close to God, I tried to copy their ways of faith and actions because I thought they were living right. But I didn’t like how they behaved outside of church environments, they were selfish and always treated people who were below them in a bad way. That made me doubt God and the kind of people that claimed to know him. Yet really, I should have looked to learning their faith not their actions, to err is human.
Then my next experience came when one of my colleagues passed on (the late Dj Roni of Capital fm) I was so hurt and torn by his death, yes he was like a brother to me but really hurt because life ended so fast I realised how we are not guaranteed tomorrow.
I tried to have a relationship with God after that, but still went off the rails. I only believed in God in the good times and when something good happened to me and my family I praised and thanked. Equally, when something bad happened I would be so negative and blame God, admit it that most of us do that.
I dont remember how I became so prayerful and faithful to God because my faith has changed so much and stronger, I guess over time, challenges and blessings have shaped my life and faith. We all believe in something or someone.
Some say Allah, God, Jehovah and well honestly some people believe in themselves, that’s okay too. Beacuse faith to me, starts with believing in yourself, that you are great and that you are worth every good that happens to you and that you deserve all the things and people in your life. I think that only when you start your faith within you, can you be confident and free to accept faith on another level.”

30 Days of Flavia Tumusiime: A complicated personal life and health scare inspired the series.
Flavia Tumusiime has finally concluded the “30 days of Flavia Tumusiime” series. Here’s her last piece of advice on day 30:
“I can almost recall in detail, the morning I wrote the first post of #30daysofflavia. I had woken up with so much determination nothing could hold me back. See, the reason for it started last year December, I had just had a tremendous year, my work life was great, family healthy, personal life good and friendships growing. Then I entered 2015 with a plan…I have always shared how am such a planner.
I had it all figured out but you know God always laughs at our plans. I went through a tough start of the year, a complicated personal life and a health scare. I thought nothing could get worse from here. And after all the frustration and complaining, I prayed as much as I could and still no answer.
I was thriving in my workspace but because in my mind I wanted so much more in every aspect of my life, I didnt stop to appreciate what I had now. So I decided to practise what I always tell people..”count your blessings.”
Its true we always say that but not practise it. I decided to share pieces of my experiences that atleast one person out there would know they are not alone and that no matter the situation…it shall pass. I have been overwhelmed with the love and stories of appreciation and inspiration shared in my inbox.
God bless each of you for changing my life in someway too, what started as me inspiring others to have a reason to try and be their best turned out to be people helping me as well and we have lifted each others spirits throughout each day.
My last word of advice is..the bigger the burden/challenge, the bigger the blessing so hold on.”
30 Days of Flavia Tumusiime: How a ‘helper’ almost wrecked her radio dream.
Flavia Tumusiime continues to share inspiring stories from her life and career in the “30 days of Flavia Tumusiime” series. On day 29, she posted:
“It was a Saturday afternoon, my first day on Capital Fm(not first day on radio though, since I had done 6 months with Hot 100). I was so nervous, maybe because I wasn’t sure of the audience or myself.
I turn on the mic for my first voicebreak and as I begin to talk, a guy walks in(I had seen him many times very close to the boss and imagined he was one of the managers) he switched off the mic in the middle of my talk and said to me “you introduce the station name, the show then your name, not how you did it, now try again” and he switched on my mic again…I was in shock and wasn’t sure what had just happened but I thought, if this is a manager, I should just take the advice. I did the show till the end but that disruption had broken me down, I didn’t think I was good or would manage the job, I thought I had screwed up on the very first day so why would they keep me around.
When I came back for my next show, I spoke to the programms manager and told him about his fellow manager who had scared me on the first day…his reaction was priceless. He laughed so hard and told me that guy is not a manager, he just helps out where I need him to, he is not permanently with the station.
I was in shock, my boss also said it was my fault for not knowing everyone and their role at the workplace and in my life and work. He said, that if I had taken the time to know who and where they mattered, I wouldn’t have been that broken up about a situation like that and would have handled it better.
In life, don’t let those who don’t see your vision drive you from it or pull you into their direction. Know who is who on your journey and their pourpose.”
