My “Silly Season” is over!

December is kind of here and I can already feel the buzz in the air as schools start to close, parents start to schedule their last few play dates and shops just become just a little bit more unbearable than usual. Yip, and our city becomes this little honey pot that all of the other South African bees rush to. The roads become silly and everything in general becomes silly. Bank accounts get siphoned for all things Christmas and school stuff for next year. Continue reading “My “Silly Season” is over!”

Comparison will eat you up

It’s Monday – whoop dee doo! Once again I find myself looking forward into my week and I’m slapping the side of my face asking myself – “what do I write about?” There is so much happening in our life right now, that to actually zone in and write about it, is proving to be extremely difficult – why? I hear you ask. Wouldn’t it be just brain-dead easy to document everything and share it with the world…… oh my dear friends – if only it were that simple.

10 things I’ve learned and am grateful for, after turning 35

I’m feeling so bone lazy about this blog thing that it’s getting seriously annoying. Note: this is myself talking to myself here. Lol. Anyway, the day came and went and as we always know – nothing’s changed except the number in the “age” box. 

I was chatting to a friend when she called and said, “I may be 35 on paper but I’m seriously stuck at 22”. She’s like, “don’t push it, 28 is more realistic!”. Continue reading “10 things I’ve learned and am grateful for, after turning 35”

Don’t you wish you could just go back?

Ok, I’m probably going to be like, majorly nostalgic in this one. This week builds up to the day I turn 35. Plus I’ve had one of those weekends of rehashing memories and just facing my “younger” self, all over again. Birthday’s do this to me, I honestly don’t know why. This whole process might explain why I don’t really like to make a big deal about them for myself. It’s weird, since I’m an extrovert. Continue reading “Don’t you wish you could just go back?”

Good choices vs Bad choices – How they make me feel……

Its fascinating to me, just how being human is such hard work. You know when you want to do things right? I find it fascinating because, as much as it feels so good to do things right, doing things the “wrong” way also has the other type of “good feeling”. I say this in light of what I wrote about here. You know when you hit a slump and become sluggish and lazy – It’s kind of an awesome feeling in itself, BUT getting things right and achieving is harder work but a way better feeling than the “bummed out” one. Continue reading “Good choices vs Bad choices – How they make me feel……”

What I’ve learned from Transition Blues…..

It’s been about 3-4 weeks that I’ve been wrestling with the fact that I am totally unmotivated to do much. I kinda wrote about it here and it’s funny because over the last few days, I’ve been chatting to a few people in different forums and it’s amazing how so many people are feeling the same way? It isn’t necessarily in the same way but it’s happening in at least one area of their lives. Continue reading “What I’ve learned from Transition Blues…..”
