QOTD: #77: Your purpose

There have been loads of discussions, all coincidental by the way, with some of my closest friends and some of my colleagues at my “9-5” regarding our passion and purpose. We been speaking about how and when does one find something they’re truelly passionate about and then how to start working on it, to pursue It.

One of my dearest friends sent this to me. She just knows my love for the written and spoken word and knew that this would be something I’d find profound and something I’d treasure. I had to share it with you. Please take heed.

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away

~ THE William Shakespeare

All of us are born unique with a set of strengths and weaknesses. We all are born with a gift, I call it a superpower, that we can choose to use, to make the world a better place and by that I mean, to touch and change the lives of even those just around us or choose to let it go to waste.

Most people, creatives, don’t believe in themselves enough. Fear of rejection and self-doubt always tend to win and I never understand why.

Personally? I believe that the world needs allll of our superpowers to make it a better place; to inspire each other and to bring out the best in each other.

Whilst we may have love for similar things, each of us are unique and therefore will always bring something unique to the craft. So don’t ever sell yourself short and don’t ever think that there’s never enough room for you. The world we’re in is always hungry for authenticity. Your time is now.

I really hope that this post will inspire and encourage you to tap into that superpower and to start sharing that with the rest of us. You need to fulfill your purpose (:

An affirmation for the ladies. Say: I am a queen

I | A M | A | Q U E E N

I don’t need anybody to tell me that because daily, I make conscious choices to try and better myself, for myself, for God and for my loved ones.

I am queen because I’ve overcome hurts and pain that was meant to break me. I turn pain into power!

I am a queen because God made me and because I know I can only do things with his will and permission and hey, I’m okay with that.

I’m a queen because when I do something I do it with love and all things positive. I don’t do it based on condition or because I have to. If it’s well within my soul, it’s the purest and most sincerest.

I am a queen because I treat people with honesty, love and respect, like the kings and queens that they are; Because what’s the use of identifying somebody as a king or queen but never treating them with the honour that they deserve…

I am a queen because I err. I am flaw-filled. But I wear those flaws confidently because we were not born to perfect, we were born to work towards being better than who we were yesterday.

I am a queen because I’m a warrior and not a worrier. Nothing can keep me down for too long. Call me my own knight in shining armor! I soldier on proudly in the constant wars that happen between self and I and those that continue around me. Forget justice, I am in the league of Hercules and Maximus Decimus Meridius

I am a queen because I choose to celebrate the best in people and not compete. Lol you can never compare me to you. Our struggles are different and therefore our battles are different.

I am a queen because I fight for what’s right, irrespective of race, colour or creed so best believe, if you coming for me, you better come correct.

I am a queen because I love to learn. I try different things to widen my perspective and self-growth and mastery is what I’m after.

And hell, I’m a queen coz I brush my hair some days and others I don’t, I listen to rap music one day and then jazz the next. I rock purple orange and green on somedays and black and grey on others.

Point is, I’m a queen in my own right and my soul is royalty! Rest assured, you and yours are too.

Love, light and supreme delight: from just an ordinary queen!

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss in life is what dies inside us while we live. 

~ Norman Cousins 


Death. A topic none of us, well atleast many of us don’t like to speak about, even though, to me, it should be discussed a lot more. 

With the world we live in, it’s so easy to get consumed and to forget that this life is temporary, it’s just a test. This life was never meant to be permanent. 

This quote resonated so well with me because death is something guaranteed, it’s something we should expect right? Therefore, it cannot be the greatest “loss” of life because in many cases when you lose something, it’s unexpected, you have no warning that you’re going to lose it.

The greatest loss is indeed one where we have the capacity to do what we love and what’s required of us but we don’t, for whatever reason that may be. The greatest loss is losing our heart, or our fire; that passion that we was once had. We lose our mark and become a thing just existing day after day. 

We lose sight of the career goals we once dreamed of. We lose sight of the essence of family and friends and true relations. We lose the kid in us, we forget how to see fun, colour and happiness in everything that we do. We forget the importance of God and our religious and spiritual obligation, we lose our humanity and moral obligations. We get consumed with things that really don’t matter. 

Why? Isn’t that the greatest loss because we have the time, we have the gift of life. We have the opportunity. 

It needs to all change. 


Let’s use our time on this earth to fulfill all of our religious and spiritual obligations and our hearts desires. So that one day when we pass, we would be remembered for just that. 

Life is all about balance, so whilst it’s ok to lose our spark sometime, it’s equally important to reignite that spark again. 

Don’t let that die whilst you’re still alive. If anything, help be the match that reignites the spark back in somebody else. Be purposeful.

May we all strive harder to reignite that spark within and to leave our mark on this earth.

Woman: which one are you? 

So today, I’m sharing a quote that came to me whilst I was writing this post. I’ve been seeing the behavior of some women outchea together with doing some self reflection and that got me 💭. So here it goes…

If you know me, you’d know that I am all about empowering people, women especially. I believe us women are Devine species, we have power. We birth nations. We subtle yet fierce. We are plan makers. We’re strong, both emotionally and physically. We endure with a smile and well the list of how awesome I think we are can go on for days.


We often are quick to call out men and deem them trash, some of whom rightly deserve such tags. But let me tell you about the two kinds of women on this earth because honestly, some of us are beneath trash!

You get the woman who knows her power, she knows that she can do what men can do, but chooses not to because she knows that her Devine purpose was not to be like men. She knows that her devine purpose is to be something more powerful; support, companionship, compassion, fierce, teachers of the home, of the nation!

What she does, she knows that nobody, not even men can do. She knows that men have a purpose and so do women and so she’s only concerned with being the best she can be in fulfilling that purpose. (I aspire to be just like this)

Then you get the woman who THINKS she knows her power and Inturn misuses it. The one who judges and looks down upon her fellow sisters, the one who is more consumed with being in competition for worldly things than actually getting her eish in order. The one who is arrogant and feels like the world owes her. The one who will encourage ruthless behavior just to prove a point to validate herself. ( I’m guilty of some of these things, I never encourage ruthless behavior and I don’t compete though!) 

Women can destroy, as easily as they can build nations. 

~ me


We will never be equal to men because then we’d need to be compared to them and really! There’s no comparison.
Men were put on this earth to carry out their own set of purposes; head their homes, provide for their families,  Protect their loved ones, Persue their person of honour etc. It really wouldn’t be fair to compare! 

If we can just go back to the basics (of understanding men and women were put on this earth for different purposes) for a second, lots of things can be changed. It’s effects can be powerful. 

If we can raise women who know their power as opposed to thinking they know their power or misusing it, things like affairs, divorces, broken homes etc. will minimize. If we go back to being okay with what our sole purpose is, and force men into fulfilling what they’ve been put on this earth to do (by not settling for less) we would not have the repercussions of kids acting out coz their fathers are nowhere to be seen. Abuse to women and children will minimize and the world will just be a more respectful place to live in.  Utopian you may say? I say say it starts with you and I. 

Imagine, all this lies in the power of a woman and the choice of how she will use her God-given power. 

And no honey, God will never send you somebody else’s husband. Having an affair should not give your airs and graces about yourself. You should not feel like you’ve “won” because men aren’t prizes, and your fellow women are not your enemies. Also, gaining anything in this world on anything but merit should not make you feel proud. 

Always think, if what you do to others were to be done unto you, how would you feel. If it’s not good, you know what to do.

|Love yourself |respect yourself |Own your power |Go!

#QOTD #18

Walk in purpose , even if it ruffles feathers. Generally those who mind don’t matter and those who matter won’t mind!

You were not born to just go with the flow or to be a puppet on strings. 

Stand for what’s right. Make a difference. Be different. Be you. Not them.

If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything 

~ Malcom X

This is the quote of my day, hope you guys relate to it too.

Are you trying to be like the world?

Absolutely! 

Whilst our world is leading to a point of no morals,values, ethics or beliefs it is important for us to find our own identity and stand tall and grounded. As time goes on, doesn’t it seem like this gets so much harder to do. 

We live in a world quick to critisize you when you don’t do what it wants you to do. You are deemed as less or non worthy or cool in the eyes of those who measure their successes in others. 

It’s quiet sad if you ask me but that’s all I’m going to say about it because personally I’m trying to stay in my own lane.

What I do believe though is that Nobody’s going to remember you if your sole purpose is to be like somebody else ; doing what they do, wearing what they wear, speaking how they speak, believing in what they believe or even driving what they drive and just cause! 

I think the most attractive and strongest people are those who remain true to themselves even when the world tells them they’re crap or not worthy; who are comfortable in their own skin even when the world sees but doesn’t acknowledge their sparkle and those who measure their successes on where they were yesterday and doesn’t see life as competition or race. 

Religion is important, morals, values, modesty and ethics is important! And it is okay if you don’t fit in…it means you’re doing something right.

Go out there and be the best version of yourself. You are BeYOUtiful, you are YOUnique and you are worthy! There is only one you…rock it 😎

I need help guys…

Having had one of the toughest emotional weeks last week. I have this constant urge, almost like a voice at the back of my head asking ” what are you doing?” ” what is your purpose?”. 

I feel as though I need to sit and think about what I have been put on this earth to do.

Growing up everybody knew I had the “brains” and had the ability to do and become literally anything because of my knack to catch onto things so quickly. 

What was sad in all of this is that I didn’t believe in myself! Today I sit as a Client Relationship Manager for the biggest medical aid company in South Africa yet I still feel as though I haven’t fulfilled my purpose. 

I started but didn’t finish my degree in Journalism and Media studies. And almost feel as though ” I just settled” and whilst iv accomplished a lot, I feel that I have the potential to do and be so much more…

Question is where does one start? How do I go back to the drawing board and decide what it is  supposed to be doing? I’m 26, surely by now I needed to have some sought of tertiary level certificate to my name.

Part of me believes that I am where God needs me to be and that I am grateful for but the other also feels that I could be so much more. 

I always see myself as somebody that would be making significant differences in the world. A radio or Tv personality or even an author. I love writing, I love people, I love making a difference but I’ve now learnt that you need more than just love. 

Where does one begin? How does one “get back up” how do you decide what you should be studying and leaving work to study isn’t an option because well of the bills to pay! 

Have any of you ever been where I am? Have you managed to find a way to answer the many questions? 

I need help guys…!
