There is definately no doubt in my mind that you would be living the best version of your life if you were confident.   1.Don’t compare yourself to anyone else I know this is easier said than done.

How to get rid of distractions

There are so many distractions in our lives. You don’t even have to go far, you open your eyes in the morning and your cellphone says ‘Hello’!, apps on the phone, whatsapp, email, sms, instagram. There’s the radio, tv, netflix, pinterest and lots of other little things that are helpful but hectic time wasters if you let them. Of course there will be people time wasters as well. It is overwhelming at times.   ...

Taking Charge of your day

I will admit, up until recently I was one of the people who didn’t have a morning routine. I was a regular get up and go girl. And 70% of the time it was more of a get up and run kinda situation. I would read or watch tv until late then wake up as late as I could possibly push it and that was how the rest of my day would go… unstructured and in a rush. Before I got married and had kids it kinda worked, I didn’t know any better so that ...

5 ways to fall in love with Monday

I used to dread Mondays. Like break down in a sweat have a tummy ache kinda dread. I didn’t know what to do. My weekend consisted of only one productive day as I spent the Sunday in bed or walking aimlessly around the house. I tried a lot of things. Exercise which helped a lot, reading, affirmations, cooking and baking. And they all worked…. when I was busy. The minute my head hit the pillow the restlessness and anxiety of the ...

Be powerful and Brave

Be unapologetically powerful and brave!   I saw this on Sarah Jakes Robert’s Instagram page the other day and was moved! The power of that statement hit me like a brick! It spoke to me. Like it was there just for me! Why? Because I am afraid of my own power!   Over the years I have been downing my power. I told myself it was so as to not make other people uncomfortable. But deep down I knew it was fear. It was easier and ...

Fear: Don’t let it run your life

I will admit, I used to be pretty afraid….of just about anything and everything. I have always had big dreams, (I still do), but I have only made a few of those big dreams happen.   Why you ask?   I shared a dream with a friend who was so skeptical and unenthusiastic she might as well have yawned at me. I was shattered, but I figured she was jealous. Just in case she wasn’t, I sat on my dreams a few more years and ...

Running your race – What to do when the road gets lonely?

If you have been following my blog then you know that this year I am advocating for self care and taking care you first before you take care of anyone else.  I mean, if you are tired, worn out and not recharged how are you going to be able to help anyone else? Like the instructions on the plane, in case of emergencies you get put your mask on first before helping anyone else.   Well, sometimes the road does get very lonely.   I ...

Thankful May

The book of Ecclesiastes talks about seasons. In Chapter 3. There is a season for everything. Not only did it ring true then, it rings true even now. There is a season for everything. A time to be sad and a time to be happy. A time to fail and a time to succeed.   We are almost halfway through 2018 and so much has happened and been achieved (and not achieved) that I thought I would take time to be thankful for the 2018 that has already ...

You are more than Enough

One of my favorite parts in the bible is after Adam and Eve have sinned and they try to hide from God when He comes to commune with them as was the norm. They then proceed to tell God that they are hiding from him because they are naked. Guess what God’s reply is? ‘Who told you?’! How powerful is that?   ‘Who told you that you were naked?’ ‘Who told you that you are not beautiful?’ ‘Who told you that you were not worthy?’ ‘Who told you ...

Tomorrow – Now or Never

James 4:14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.   We all know that elusive beast called tomorrow very well. At the getsmart Women in leadership programme I attended, the panelist were asked to share one thing they live by or that gets them motivated. One of them, said ‘If not now, then when!’. I absolutely loved it! She went on to ...
