A better caretaker…

I opened my eyes this morning, facing the ceiling, I laid in my bed for a couple of minutes and just appreciated the sound of the chirping birds. We all know birds chirp every morning, but we hardly ever truly pause to appreciate this gift of nature. But today was different for me. Today, I […]

Up, Down, Left, Right, In and Out: An ex...

Growing up my dream was to become a professional soccer player. I started playing soccer from a very young age on the streets of Hambanathi township, in the North Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal. The only thing I wanted to do was to play soccer and represent my country at international competitions. I will never forget […]

Light cyber stalking- the unspoken thing...

These days when you meet someone and there is an attraction from either one or both parties, there is bound to be some light cyber stalking involved. In my unresearched definition, light cyber stalking is: “Going through someone’s social media platforms, sometimes saving their images without wanting the person to know. The aim is to satisfy your […]

Different valid forms of work- they all ...

My friend and I have been engaging in dialogue about redefining work and creating a meaningful life in today’s world. We are both independent consultants with very different lives from our peers who work a 9-5 in corporations.

I recently read an article that truly changed my life. The most mind and heart-blowing thing the author mentioned was: “You are joy. You are joy itself.

Dear 22-year-old me…

I stumbled across the above photo of myself in my social media archives a few days ago. I looked and smiled at the photo. This was 2011 and I was 22 years old in this photo. I recall that my older brother took this picture on our way to my honours graduation ceremony. It was […]

Life Lessons for the young and mature…

I had mistakenly thought that I had it all figured out because of knowledge acquired in blogs and books, but life has surprised me. I have realised that the saying “Experience is the best teacher” is indeed very true and below I list my 3 main life lessons. Lesson 1: Every man for himself The […]

iBanguwe! (Be yourself)

I was watching a show on YouTube and they were interviewing a famous singer. The singer shared interesting insights about the struggles of the music industry. She shared that though she had always been clear about what she believed God called her for in the industry, it hasn’t been an easy journey for her, particularly […]

In the quest for the spectacular don’t l

We are living in very interesting times with so much access to information and amazing progress by mankind. We witness this progress through technological advancements, human rights movements, business expansion, and so much more.
