This Bloganuary prompt could not have come at a better time! I’ve been wanting to write about this for a couple of days. We’ve been traveling since Tuesday, 3 January 2022 and have just arrived home. Knowing that I’ve missed out on the prompts for the past 3 days, and with so many stories to … Continue reading Time to pull up those big-girl panties!
Do you remember a time when you could switch on the news and BELIEVE what they say? I remember listening to the news as a child and I knew then that it was all true. OK, granted media has been controlled, censored and manipulated for as long as it's been around, but at least we … Continue reading Lost treasures
My earliest memory…
I grew up in a small town in the Goldfields of South Africa. The community consisted of half farming and half mine workers. Everyone knew everyones business. It was peaceful, quiet, and quaint. We attended church in the next town over, about 27km away. My dad, a deacon at the time, and my grandfather, an … Continue reading My earliest memory…
Brave? Me? Heck yes!
Thanks to Bloganuary for really making me think so early in the year 🙂 I've never considered myself to be brave. Early trauma taught me a lot about the difference between brave and stupid (you get to pick which is which in the age-old fight or flight question), so I adopted the fawn option. I … Continue reading Brave? Me? Heck yes!
A goal without a plan is just a dream
Apart from having a focus for the year, I also firmly believe in setting SMART goals for (almost) every area of my life. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound Working on the "SMART" formula, you make sure that you don't set yourself up for disappointment and it provides you with a very clear path to … Continue reading A goal without a plan is just a dream
Happy New Year!

Personally, I feel that these are just things that we trick ourselves with to feel like we are trying to better ourselves. Unfortunately, the … Continue reading Happy New Year!

It's been 4 721 days since I started this blog, and 694 since my last post. It's not that I've not written anything since then, it's just..... yes. Life happened. When my blog was at its prime, I wrote from a place of pain. In essence, it was a way to purge myself of everything … Continue reading 31 December 2022
The best kind of love
I am blessed with the best partner any girl could ask for, but today I'm inclined to think of a diffferent kind of love - the most important kind of love The Bible tells us ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and … Continue reading The best kind of love
Pain is a necessary evil. Embrace it. Allow it to wash over you and through your spirit. Cry, scream, punch a pillow, cry some more.... and then move on. Remember the pain, hold on to the memories, never forget the lesson, but let go. Ruin is the path that leads to transformation. For a diamond … Continue reading Rise….
It’s not my purpose…
As far as humanity and a purpose-filled life goes, there are in my opinion only one of two roads you can take:A - either you believe that we just happened to land here by some fluke of science or a big bang or some random atoms that just collided and by magic you came into … Continue reading It’s not my purpose…
