Don't Just Settle For Potential

Today’s post is a little encouragement that I have for my sisters and brothers because I know what happens every year around this time. Even though this is a joyous time to be with loved ones and family alike, people do become the true versions of themselves.  I say so because a person will always be consistent with everything they do. If all of a sudden they have behaviors or mannerisms you are not used to, they were just hiding them. Only certain situations can bring that side of theirs out and this time may be one of those situations. Don’t despair, weigh your options and make a decision that you will be able to live with for the rest of your life because this sets the tone of what your future may look like.

Thee Day: Happy Anniversary 1

A year today, I opened the doors of sindisosdiary and published my first post. I can’t believe that I stuck to this journey for 12 consecutive months. A year is a long time especially in terms of what can be done or achieved. Honestly I am in awe of the growth and the amount of learning that has taken place within this year. Ever so often one has to delve into reflection mode and acknowledge what they are grateful for. I for sure am grateful for good health, family, having a career and a passion (blogging) that is booming into something to look forward to everyday. A lot could have gone haywire but to God’s grace, mercy and compassion; things have been more positive.

Anniversary Giveaway: Year One Closed

Sindiso’s Lifestyle Diary is turning one in exactly 4 days’ time and I must say this is so surreal. I started this blog as a way of sharing my love for fashion, writing and reading with anyone willing to indulge in those things. What started as a pastime is definitely flourishing into a passion. This has been a year of many first times and unearthing of potential I never thought I had in me. As I reflect on the past year, I am seeing growth, maturity and confidence that the blog has afforded me to experience. I am still echoing the words that I said in a reflection post here that blogging, being the creative behind your blog and staying consistent is really hard. Many times I found myself doubting every look or post I put together wondering if people will enjoy it. And I must say that your support and encouragement in this regard is unparalleled; THANK YOU!

25 Get To Know Me Questions Tag 2016

When I decided to start this blog, one of the few tags I wanted to do was the “25 Get To Know Me Questions Tag”. I wrote this piece almost a year ago to-date. It was meant to be a part of the first few posts I published but somehow I felt I wanted my readers to know me from the way I present myself in my posts than me just telling them that this is who I am. Now I think some of the things I will be saying will have meaning and you can actually “see it” in me. The 1(one) year anniversary of sindisosdiary is almost here, and what better day to publish this post than today. Whilst talking about that, I have been putting together a small token of appreciation (gift) which will be awarded to one lucky follower of sindisosdiary. The details of the giveaway will be in my next post, so be on the lookout for that.
