Motivational Monday – Getting the balance in your life Right



Have you ever wanted to pack up your life and start over well life deals us some heavy curve balls we can never prepare for but starting over fresh in the figurative and literal sense can be done. I know we all wish we could run away from hardships and despair but running away never solves the problem it will be there staring you in the eye when you return. Starting over on the other hand is possible.

I am about to pack up my life and start over and the most common question I have received from me outing this decision to the public, (as if I am some Kardashion lol.) The reaction has been what are you running away from. If you could have a looking glass into my life you will find absolutely nothing worth running away from. I have the most amazing supportive family I could ever ask for, the best friends that are irreplaceable, the most awesome church I even have two churches each with its own uniqueness and sets of church family.  My support system here in Cape Town the place that I will always call home is pretty amazing.

I bet you all asking now why pack up and leave…. Sometimes you are called to do things you cannot explain. While most aspects of my life was really great I lacked a good sense of purpose, a purpose driven life if you would put it like that. I believe so many of us are faced with this same dilemma especially the younger generation finishing school and University.

The real world is a tough cookie to crack but only once you feel a great sense of purpose in what you do with your life will you feel complete in that sphere of your life. Like I mentioned before life is a balancing act of many spheres and as soon as one area is lacking it will out weigh the scale. My scale was out of balance my career, work life happiness factor wasn’t there.  I have decided to take a risk I have no idea if this is the right thing or the right career path for me but for this season in my life  I believe it is.

My advice to all of you is to find what makes you happy as early as possible I know it’s hard and pretty cliche to say; Do what makes you happy and you will never have to work a day in your life. It is so true though the happier you are with what you do the harder you will work at it in all aspects of your life. I hope people can start learning how to balance their lives so we can eliminate all this negativity in this world. I know its easier said than done but honestly hope that this post touches at least one persons heart and inspires you to truly live your dream.

My dream is to travel, inspire and continue writing in some form. I never for one second imagined my dream to take me to China but it is and with faith and alot of patience  i know i can do this. The journey up to now hasn’t been the easiest but I have learnt so much about myself and can’t even imagine what else I will learn in the coming future as I now pack up and start over.

This has been an emotional few weeks,saying goodbye to friends and trying to do travel admin and see as many people as possible hence the lack of posting. I have done some awesome things and visted some awsome places so keep an eye out for more explore Cape Town posts coming soon. I also helped my dear sister with another video and will post it as soon as soon as it is out.

Hope you are all well and enjoying the start of Spring or Autumn wherever you may be in the world.

Peace love and Happiness

One World and We all Connected


Over the last few days, I have visited the airport three times to say goodbye to friends and family all embarking on separate travels off to America and Europe. With my travels coming soon too I realised how small this world is a few hours and many borders may separate us but with the ever evolving technology at our finger tips it doesn’t feel like we that far apart at all.

I have always been fascinated by travel and meeting new people, experiencing different cultures and learning new things. The journey that lead me to this point in my life where I sit looking at my room I have had most of my life and waiting on boxes to start packing and throwing things out actually brings a sadness to my heart.

Life as I know it  is going to drastically change and I still don’t think it has really sunk in but I am so ready for this next season in my life and brave is what I need to be to endure the next few months as China becomes my new home.

The things I will miss the most is the comforts of the familiarity, being able to jump in my car and know where I am going is going to be a thing of the past. Missing out on special once off moments will be sad. The fact that I won’t be here to cheer Courteney on as she competes in her dance competitions not seeing her battle through her final year of school not being here for her Matric balls and family weddings I will miss those moments the most.

It’s strange to think this is my last two weeks in Cape Town for a while, and the journey that lies ahead is one scary, but exciting journey that has taught me to work hard have patience and see things through. The real test is yet to come, but that’s an entirely new post for another day.

Peace love and Happiness
