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. Talking to the field will not make anything happen. So why do you think that talking about your dreams will make things magically happen for you? Without working ...

Finding Passion @Work

Passion! I have been harping on and on about this for a while now. Because I believe it really is important. I see people going through life daily as if it is a chore, as if the life they are living is it, as if they have been dealt a bad card. And it saddens me greatly. I believe life is a beautiful gift.

    I have been struggling lately. I ended the last year on such a high, I honestly thought it would carry through to the new year. But nope, I am struggling to get back to form. Even gym hasn’t really seen me much this year. But you made such good time on the 15km Bay to Bay you say? Well, that’s Bay to Bay. It seems to be the one thing I do ever since I started.

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.   ...

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 ...

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 ...
