We grow through what we go through

This is the first time I use any of my own pictures for this blog. That’s me and my son Angenathi, recently turned 2. This post is not about that picture though. It is about how I learnt through challenges I face everyday in my life, some of which I would love to share on…

Dance woman!

Picture: from pinterest ​Free spirited and worry-free. She throws her energy around it’s contagious, she sways her round buttocks like she doesn’t give shit! Driven by her sensations, She does nothing to please anyone.worries escaped her mind the minute she stood up to dance. Notice the wind dry up  tears  from her eyes as she…

She died for love

A lot of things do happen in my life and usually I write about those moments which affected me the most, be it beautifully or painfully. However, it is so strange how I never wrote anything about my sister’s death. It was unfortunate that her life was taken on Valentine’s day of 2014 by the…

I found closure visiting my former high school

Today I visited my former high school. I had been dreading to for many years and this time I had no choice but to go as I needed a testimonial for a job.  As I’m heading towards the end of my internship, I applied to a few retail stores for jobs that could help me…

I Ask

I ask for a little help For advice For a penny Or even a grain of rice The answer could be a promising Yes, Or a denying No. I wish a Yes, a big one, could push itself out of your mouth This would make my heart pound joyfully In a rhythm that is more…

How I always worry about saying the right thing in comments

What I have recently learnt is that blogging is not only about reading some great inspirational work written by your favourite blogger; taking out something useful from what is written. It is also about engaging with them, thus putting something  in, in return. What I actually mean is  that blogging should also be fun as…

A nation proud of itself

What came to my mind today is how determined I am and have been for a while, about changing my life and those of others not just from where I’m from, but even globally.  I understand that we all have some kind of power within us to change someone else while we need the change…

Finding my lost self

I have imagined this day in my mind before, But never really thought it would ever come, I’ve cried and laughed I’ve walked away and returned again Each walk away felt like giving up On something I’ve worked so hard at building Like it was a part of me How do you get so attached,…

Lessons on radio

Having started working at Mdantsane FM, I’ve had the most amazing time working within a vibrant yet supportive team of people who love their jobs. It is an environment of Love for the community and it is never about self- dissipation where most of us get the foundation to learn about this industry. There are…

Job hunting

2016 has been one of the toughest years of my life. As a current final year student in Journalism, I am required to do 6 months of internship which I should have started in July. With no luck from emails and word of mouth proving no success, I spent most of my days and nights…

The importance of gratitude

Great things could be happening in your life or you might be at your lowest at this moment. When we are faced with problems, that we feel are too big to handle we forget some important things, like realising how blessed we are. You forget what you have and focus more on what you don’t…
