#QOTD 51

Amongst the chaos, a friend of mine and I were working on our Mandela bags for a community service initiative that we decided to be apart of. It’s a collaboration of organizations whereby we fill 2000 bags that will be handed out to disabled and disadvantaged kids on Mandela Day

The idea is to fill the bag with 8 or more non-perishable items. The bag itself, is white and we were encouraged to decorate it.

The front and back of our bags ♥️

Anyway, so I came across this quote that , together with the initiative, served as my life line for today! 

Nelson Mandela once said:

A winner is a dreamer who never gives up

Pretty self explanatory and I’m sure you can understand why I considered it my life line!

Let this be YOUR sign that you should keep on pushing your passion. Even when things seem like they’re falling apart…let those dreams of success fuel you to push on and keep on going. 

We’re on this journey and winning is our set destination 🙂

#QOTD #49

Been having a particularly tough time managing my stresses, especially at work. Generally, positive thinking is what I do, it’s my natural approach to anything I face. 

However, of late it’s becoming more and more difficult for me to do. This is a very dangerous space to be in, especially for me because I’ve worked so hard to get out of a verg negative era of my life. 

So amongst other things, I’ve been perusing online in hope to come across something that would spark some sought of positivity within… 

Bubblegum characters always lighten up my soul

… to shed some light in what seems to be a very dark space, I came across these bubblegum figures and this quote: (God bless the written word and the writers who write them)

” The darkest hour has only 60 minutes “

~ Morris Mandel 


This quote got me pondering instantly. It reassured me that nothing in this life time is ever permanent and that even dark times have their expiry dates. #aameen

I remember reading that actions derive from thoughts. This stuck with me and will continue to stick with me as I journey through this thing called life. 

This is why, when I think about more negative than positive things, I frantically search for something, anything, just to change my thought process.

I think it’s essential that we do this before we get consumed. Seems like this quote and my bubble gang are  my life lines for today, tomorrow shall see for itself.
