If you could spend one whole day alone with anyone in the world who is currently alive, who would you select?

Blessed, Inspiration/Motivation

Having a missing my mummy moment of late …well moments to be exact.

When I was asked this question I paused for 2 seconds and instantly thought of my mum.

My rock, motivator, inspiration and best friend….

Every chance I get to chat to her reminds me why God picked her to be my mum. When I feel like life is overwhelming me and I can’t possibly go on…her words {“Tomorrow is another day, smile, God has given you another day to make the most of it”} ring in my ears and I smile and know well tomorrow really is just a sleep away.  

When my sister and I decided to begin our little adventure, it was just that..us taking on the world and finding our paths. In that moment the thoughts of leaving the nest and ‘free flying’  were the last, if not non-existent, thoughts. We were on an adventure….

And now I miss the 3am pancakes when I had exams, the random trips to Randburg CBD in South Africa to watch people dance (you had to be there to fully grasp the pleasure my mum got from seeing people boogie in the middle of the afternoon on a Saturday), the goch goch (barbecue) weekends, random day trips planned in minutes…the list is endless…

I cherish every memory my mum created for us in that bubble we called home.

I miss you mummy

Already half way through January and still can’t wrap my head around 2015…

So many adventures in 2014 I got side-tracked from the blog, life as I knew it before and so I decided to live in the moment. Summer was amazing, brunches galore, trips, unexpected adventures. I can honestly say 2014 was a fantastically weird treat to acknowledging you can not truly control anything…you make choices and live in the now. I missed my heart and had to live with understanding how distance makes the heart grow fonder as well as how living in ones own world can also create a bigger distance than we don’t see coming until it’s too late. #sigh… I met some amazing women and got to know myself better being in their company…2014 would not have been 2014 without my ladies #ladieswhobrunch #champagnequeens #mimosasondeck #rooftoppools #packabag #isitabottomlessbrunchornah???

I’m in the best possible space I could be in and I didn’t even realise it until I fell into it. When I stopped obsessing about business, blogging, finding my purpose etc etc the list goes on and on…I just started living and praying. Things started shifting and happening, and it made me realise when I over think, worry, question…It doesn’t make me any better, I just fall into a pit of nothingness. The end of 2014 brought about big decisions, I went back and forth and changed my mind repeatedly (sorry to those close enough to constantly hear my mumbles of ‘I don’t know what to do’ ‘what do you think’ ‘ok, no now i’ve really made up my mind’ ‘yeah, I’m done’ (lol) forgive me….)

And now 2015 is here and things are changing so quickly…there’s no looking back. I’m gearing myself up for the challenges ahead of me and focusing on getting the things on my long-term goal list fulfilled. The little things I used to think I needed to make me happy don’t amount to the feeling of understanding myself enough to know I want so much more than to just wake up and be. This year I am going to check off a good amount from my goals list, purely by being committed and choosing to trust God.

Hooray to 2015

Stay blessed loves

Having one of those days thats blah and blue…I cant wait for tomorrow 😉 ready for a new day to focus on this hustle all over again…

Sometimes we get stuck in ‘I don’t know anymore’ but sure enough another day comes along and all is well the sun is shining and we have another chance to make our mark…

Don’t be discouraged if today wasn’t the day…just keep in mind tomorrow might just be…keep positive and keep pushing for your dreams…

Just be…..
