Letting go

"You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore."
Christopher Columbus


“Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it.”

Monday moment

Today was one of those days, like most Monday's that were uber busy and a mishmash of everything is going on..

1. I have two newbies on my team at work. They're really awesome and now I manage 6 people! I never really saw myself as a career girl till I came to Joburg. I like it! And my team are awesome.

2. My blog got a facelift and new look ... what do you think?

3. I just had some delish hotchoc from our Nestle machine. I love my office space.

4. I've been invited to speak at a Marketing Analytics Conference. Wow! I'm a bit overwhelmed and happy at the same time. It's in November so I have plenty of time to prepare!

5. Very sad news that my cleaning lady passed away this weekend. She got very sick and she died within 3 weeks. She leaves behind 2 amazing children. Lots of love and compassion to them!

6. Friends make my world go round, and I feel blessed to have so many fabulous people in my life.

Things I learnt this week

You are where you are meant to be to experience what you need to, in order to learn, grow and create...

You are always on the right path, even when you think you have strayed completely off it
~ T. Salerno

Happiness is...

Happiness brings out the best in us :)

1 thing I learnt this weekend

We get what we settle for! What are you worthy of? If you want more then believe you deserve more!

a thought

Everything will be alright in the end - if its not alright, its not the end.

Sometimes I feel...

We all have days when we feel lonely, but the idea comes from the false notion that we are separate from each other.
everything is connected...

Take some time

How deep have you been digging if you're finding treasures that prove you're alive? I hope you've been been asking the questions and not expecting the answers. I hope you've been thinking and thriving, wondering, trusting, loving, crying, laughing, offering, anticipating, yearning, being, dancing!! I hope you've been taking risks, telling your special ones they're loved, been gentle with yourself and smiled at a stranger.

I hope that while discovering more about the world inside of you that you're discovering about the world around you. I hope that you know how amazing you are and that you are here for a purpose. I hope that you know that you are unique and that where you are right now is exactly where you need to be to do what you need to do.

I hope you know that you are loved beyond understanding and that your love shared is honoured and respected. I hope you know that without you this world would not be the same. I hope that you remember to put yourself first. I hope that you are being the best you, because there is no other like you, yesterday, today or tomorrow.

I hope you know that you are magnificence and that you take someone's breath away. I hope you know that someone dreams of you, of seeing you, speaking to you and hearing your voice. I hope you know that you are not alone. I hope you are enjoying life, that you are happy, playing, listening, exploring, smiling, singing, and remembering who you are and I hope you know that I'm blessed that you have crossed my path!

Feel alive!

Watch every thought, feeling... watch every desire, and doing... walking, talking, showering, eating, watch everything... smell, touch, feel the breeze on your face. Live in the moment. Be present. Take risks. Feel alive!

The ease of change, is directly proportional to one's willingness to reconsider what's best for themselves. (tut)

I'm so grateful that my kitty Gingi Jasmine returned home after being prowling round for 3 months!! It has reminded me that everything will come to you, or back to you at the right time, for the right reason, no matter what you do. Don't worry about "how" it will happen, just have faith and believe! Everything happens at the right time.

"Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen."
