A Letter to My Future Self

Dear Self

 

So…you’re older now (or is it I’m older now?).  I don’t even know what to tell you…me…You know what I mean… I’ll keep this short.

 

You have found your voice. Don’t ever lose it.

You are fire and ice – nothing wrong with that. Continue reading “A Letter to My Future Self”

You Are Worthy

That’s right.  You are worthy.

 

So often we walk through life feeling less-than.  We crutch along on that inferiority complex we hold so dear.  We beat ourselves down to a pulp and allow others to do the same.  We deny ourselves freedom to be.

35…Moving Along Swiftly

Yesterday I celebrated my thirty-fifth birthday.  It was quite subdued (not that I ever do wild parties and such).  I can tell that I’m growing older….and it’s not necessarily a bad thing (not counting tripping over my own two feet and still recovering three weeks later).  I can remember my thirtieth birthday like it was yesterday.  I just could not stop crying.  It was one of the saddest happy days of my life simply because I could not believe I was no longer 20-something.  I remember a time when my little cousin told me I was old when I was only 23-years-old (she was just 7-years-old at the time).  That was a time when I thought thirty was so far off.  Yet, here I am…five years shy of forty.

I’m not sorry

Sorry…not sorry.

I am Woman fashioned by God’s own hand. I will walk with my head held high and stand tall.

This is a powerful piece by Lee from Love, strongHer. Lee, I hear you roar. ❤

love, strongHER

It’s #WCW. You gotta love these hashtags 😉 I’m a woman and I’m crushing hard – on myself.

The bible says in Songs of Solomon 4:7“you are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.”

No further validation needed. I am flawless! Today I choose to own this, wholeheartedly.

“It takes years as a woman to unlearn what you have been taught to be sorry about.” Amy Poehler​

This quote though, “…unlearn what you have been taught to be sorry about.”

Conditioned by society, shaped in our beliefs by whatever influences, always believing that as a girl you are just a little bit less than.But God created us both, man and woman. Fashioned her in her mother’s womb. Intricately woven together, stitch by beautiful stitch. He made her and then He called her good.

So here goes.

I’m not sorry

I am not sorry thatI…

Please Allow Me To Be Honest For A Minute…

So…it’s been a while since I posted anything.  In fact, the last time I posted was July 2nd 2016.  How sad is that?

 

Our internet connection has been down in all that time.  It was only restored yesterday (thanks and no thanks to Telkom whom we have now cancelled as a service provider).  It was painful.  Mobile data costs makes one really appreciate having ADSL installed at home.  It is possible to use one’s mobile device as a hotspot…but why should it be necessary?  So, anyway…line restored.  This after being told that we needed a new router, R800 later it was an external issue with Telkom’s lines and, of course, no compensation for the router and they still expect to be paid.  Sadly, we still need to rent the line…Sucks. So. Bad.
