Flavia Tumusiime continues to share inspiring stories from her life and career in the “30 days of Flavia Tumusiime” series. On day 28, she posted:
“I have observed in my years of working and dealing with challenges, that there are 2 kinds of people. The ones who focus on what they see now and cater to routine and eventually life happens to them or the ones who do so much with their time and opportunity that life has no choice but to happen to them. Am not sure where I fall, some days I feel I can conquer the world and other days I just dont have the zeal to even try.
But lets look at it this way…are you the person who does your job and sticks to routine every day…every year and you have the same resolutions and ambitions for everyday…such people still succeed but to the level of their effort.
You have the ones who wont just watch, they will do. The colleague at work who does their job and almost yours, the one with ideas all the time to change this and that and always thinking on their feet. Such people get success in bulk.
You have to choose depending on where you want to be in life, its easier to be in the comfort zone and I am a victim of this sometimes. But are you the kind that watches others do more and achieve more? Or you would rather be the one doing more and achieving more?”

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.”
