Colourful But Muted

Being a lover of anything colourful and bright does not mean that you have to shine bright like the African sun in people's faces.

Reflection 1: Importance Of Having Time To Yourself

Reflection and Solitude should be a part of every being seeking to be a better version of themselves. This year I am making it a habit to include reflection and solitude moments as I do a life and lifestyle audit. Finding time when juggling family, work and life is a challenge but I try to do this at least once a week or whenever I can. We are living in times where it is easy to lose focus of what is important due to the competitive nature of humans and the love for finer things. No one can honestly say that they have not looked at that one person next to them and wished if only some part of their life was like theirs. I am guilty of this because the more I feast on social media, the more I think of things and ways to change my life. Not that I do it with the intention of being like them, but doing it to make me feel good inside. Some of these things honestly are meaningless and don’t even hold any weight to what I have going well in my life.

It Is Continued...... What went down this weekend through pictures

First let me apologize for the sudden hiatus. Sometimes life happens and you have little to no time to sit down and to think or do even certain things. When this happens, it is a sign for me to take a break and just go and unwind, resting without influences of our social media etc. The only thing I or we do around this time is to just reconnect. Well at least that was the plan!

South Africa Today, What Is Your Take On It?

These are trying times for South Africa and the future looks bleak for some of us. You cannot ignore what is happening to our political landscape and hope that is will just disappear. The political and economic scene of our country is scary to say the least. We have a party which we elected in good faith that it will forever uphold the standards and needs of the people very high and also protect the constitution no matter what. For a very long time we have always believed that no man is bigger than the constitution of our beloved country but more and more as the days go past we see that it is not so. I am so disappointed that what we were once made to believe to be is not the case. On the other hand, we have our trusted MPs protecting one man and the image of a party which is said to be of the people. This brings a question of what will it take for our leaders to stand for what is right than saving their own face!

April Fool's Day Treat

Today is April Fool's Day. And with this day comes a look that not many will associate or picture me in. When I was planning this post, I wanted it to shock and get friends and family talking and wondering if this is an April Fool’s Day prank or not.
