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

Making decisions

Inspiration/Motivation, Uncategorized

How can we maximise our time and get results quicker and get great outcomes?

I ask myself this question daily. We live in a world that changes quicker than a heartbeat… I have found that retreating into my sanctuary…God, Prayer and family- (the one God put me in and the one he hand-picked for my journey)….has brought me back to the place I left off and had no idea how to get back to. During the holidays I sit back and reflect on all the ups, downs, happy, tear-filled days of the year and take the time to thank God for all the good and bad. Everything is a life lesson and what we take from it and grow in ourselves helps build us to be the best versions of ourselves. I choose to be happy everyday, there is always something to smile about.

Decision making is a fine art. Find your happy place and retreat to it any time you feel the pressure of the world draining you.

Wishing you all happy holidays, time with family and prosperity in 2015.

I’m so thankful…

How many times do you wake up and thank the Lord you are alive?

At this time of the year I feel it more and more, I wake up thankful, spend my day thankful, go to bed thankful…

A few things i am grateful for…

  • I have a warm bed to get into every night
  • Meals whenever I want them
  • A home I love
  • Family, the love I get from people I have no blood connection too makes me see what God meant about loving thy neighbour
  • I have peace in my heart
  • God loves me and forgives me for all my foolery- he knows theres been some foolery (lol)
  • I see the light…my dreams are in reach
  • I am alive, healthy and have God’s blessings…what more could i ask for
  • and finally… I have Love

I have been blessed beyond words… I know there is more to come, but for now I am just thankful for an awesome 2013

What are you thankful for?

Happy thanksgiving

Love Ruby

1 Timothy 4:4-5

For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,  because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
