I’ve been attending step and aerobics classes and finally got the message behind the 'Do you boo' cliché. I have now come full circle. #BackStory! In 1999 (20 years ago!) I was a first year Information Technology student at TNG (Technikon Northern Gauteng) in Soshanguve and I had to wait for my dad to pick… Continue reading The Cliché ‘Do you boo’
2016, Bloomsbury, Pages: 276 This book is fantastic!!! It has been quite a long time since I've since read a book, especially a self-help one at that which has affected me like this one has. Creativity is frustrating territory and Liz Gilbert has managed to tackle the subject with so much ease while hitting the… Continue reading Big Magic (Liz Gilbert)
I met a young lady on Saturday, 29 July named Kimberely Bhunu as we were clearing customs at the Harare International Airport. She greeted me with a lovely smile and asked where I had come from. I informed her Gaborone and I enquired about her huge 4 bags. She proceeded to tell me about her… Continue reading Kimberely Bhunu for Wimbledon!
Upon a cross they hung a man who redefined who I am! I have worn the label 'divorcee' with so much regret, shame, guilt, condemnation, and humiliation. I use the word 'worn' because that's exactly what I feel I did. I woke up each morning and put on the label as one would wear a… Continue reading I have a new name…
Pic source: http://www.123rf.com As Christians we love to quote scripture but not so much to live them out. We love to proclaim bold scriptures such as "In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us" although we often skip the 'in all these things' part. I don't know what we… Continue reading When God doesn’t remove the cup…
If there was one thing that made boot camp difficult apart from the pressures of training and little sleep, it would have to be personalities. We were a group of about 100 trainees, from all walks of life and all women. What an interesting experience! Sharing space isn't the easiest thing in the world to… Continue reading MYTH #3 – This is how I am
For the better part of my young school life I hated being tall. It was the ideal thing for nicknames. Giraffe was a favourite one. Having been skinny at the same time also didn't help matters as I'd be called names like skinny legs, mosquito, motsetserepa etc. For a long time I walked around with… Continue reading Myth #2 – Tall and slim = fit and healthy
Image source: symbols-n-emoticons.com I have just come back from a 3-months basic police training course and my,what a time I had. Apart from academics and musketry (firearm) training, I also needed to be competent in fitness in order to successfully complete the course. Now, I have a love and hate relationship with exercise. I… Continue reading MYTH #1 – I’m not a morning person
I generally do a book review after having finished a book but I have to make an exception with this one. I absolutely love auto/biographies. I find people and their stories fascinating so I'm very drawn to such books to hear what inspires people, what makes them who they are, and what goes on in… Continue reading LIRA – Making HERstory – A decade of achievement (Part 1)
My heart is still palpitating uncontrollably thanks to last week's episode of Dragon's Den South Africa where one of the Dragons, Lebo Gunguluza parted with R5 000 000. Perhaps I should write it in full just in case I've missed a zero. He parted with five million rands ON HIS OWN!!! When all the dragons… Continue reading R5 000 000??? What???
