Dear future husband,

I often ponder about how we would spend New Year’s Eve.

I know prayer is important; so I’d want us to spend some part of it praying for the year behind and ahead of us.

But for the rest, would we be out with friends? Or at home, having the time of our lives with a two-man party, reflecting and having a meaningful convo, then cooking up a storm to some of our favorite jams 🎶 and then 💃🏻 🕺till we can’t anymore? Would we have our own “Idols” or “SA got talent” amongst us two 🎤 or with a couple of friends over just being cray cray.

Or would we jet set to Cape Town and parade on long street, taking in all of the people , Malay choirs and then get ready to watch the klopse over the next couple of days?

I’d imagine that anything with you by my side would be magical 🦄 ✨

Dear future husband, are you by any chance close by?

Awaiting your arrival

Your future wife 💋

Looking back at 2017

Last day of 2017… can you believe it!!!

I always take some time out to reflect during this time of year, reflect on the events, people, situations, lessons that year has brought and I have faced.

Some major milestones happened this year. But if I’m honest, it was a year wasted in terms of discipline.

  • I started studying and managed to pass with two distinctions.
  • I was awarded the opportunity to blog on a work platform.
  • I had my first relationship since my divorce.
  • I did more things I said I would do, like car pool karaokes, visiting new places in and around Durban, and through that even got to meet John Legend and Shekhinah.
  • I was more dedicated to my faith and my religion
  • I learnt how to create boundaries and the importance of having a circle of positive friends.

But most importantly I’ve learnt and accepted to be me even in situations where everyone else was against me. That for me was the highlight for This year:

Be you, even if it makes other people uncomfortable because mediocre minds were not made to comprehend great spirits.

It has also however, been a year of financial difficulty and that’s mainly because of me and my unhealthy spending habits, so rest assured 2018 we working on financial freedom. Watch out for more posts on that.

My friends and family have also achieved quite abit in this year and so it’s been a fulfilling year overall .

Over the holidays, my sister and the girls visited, we spent so much of quality time together, I’ll include some pics. I’m mentioning this though because when they left yesterday, my nieces displayed such bravery and are so resilient for their young souls that they’ve actually inspired me;

to always be brave and to always be resilient; to know that all happens for a reason and to trust that the almighty has a plan.

What amazing qualities to leave 2017 with? Whilst there was heartache , friends lost, horrible fights in between, we take the positive and keep moving forward.

We will make be making vision boards over the next few weeks and will be posting about it.

And all I can say is goodbye 2017, it’s been great. And tomorrow, we shall welcome 2018.

May this last day of 2017 be spent meaningfully, be filled with lots of love and light and reflection and be spent with those you love the most.

It’s time to be legendary fam.

Love and light always, from just an ordinary girl 🤟🏼

These messages mean the world to me! 

Thank you all for your kind words , posted here so when I reflect back on my blog and life itself, I will be reminded of just how blessed I am! 

Girl power, Love, life & everything's else in between, motivation and inspiration, personal

If you know me, you know that I thrive on authentic connections and moments in life. 

I believe in the little things; showing appreciation, saying thank you when somebody does something nice, smiling , lending a helping hand, ear or shoulder. Thank kinda thing. I also believe the world is lacking that and so I’ve made a conscious effort to do more of all of those things. 

I already started sending out my Messages of gratitude, nice and early before networks get jammed. 

The amazing thing with each message I sent back was an even more amazing response! This speaks volumes and validates what amazing connections I have with the people in my life. 

Know that I appreciate every single one of you. For always being ever ready to listen to me and Gawsh we know I can speak a lot! For encouraging me, supporting me, accepting me and my flaws, accommodating me at my lowest and highest moments. For Sharing your thoughts and advice, for never judging me even when I make the wrong choices or decisions. The list can go on for all the things I’m grateful for.

What a beautiful way to end 2016, spreading words of encouragement, well wishes and thank you’s to those who mean the most us? So I’m just gonna end this post with two words: 

THANK YOU and I love you all

…ok maybe that wasn’t two but oh well😁💋


A heartfelt gratitude from just an ordinary girl
