Live your life

My absolute favourite song. That I don’t know what the rest of the song says, or that it may not go with what I have attributed to it or what I get from it is also irrelevant. It’s the first line that I just blows me away. Live your life. Such a simple and yet profound statement. Live your life. The very first time I heard it I asked myself, ‘Who’s life am I living?’ And I was surprised when I unpacked that ...

Sowing dreams

I honestly did not know what to title this one. I saw someone tweet that ‘Tshimo ga e lengwe ka loleme’ and I was intrigued. Loosely transalted, it says, You do not plant or sow a field with your tongue. Yep, you actually do not. Talking about it will not cause anything to happen.

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 ...
