2020. That's the word. We can all agree that 2020 has been a year like no other! The running theme has been Covid and lockdowns on a global scale. On a personal scale it differs for each individual. I'll share some of my thoughts on this year and what it meant to me. Highlights of 2020 The biggest highlight for me has been growing in confidence and demolishing my comfort zone. After completing my masters I said I want to be doing instagram Lives more. I've mentioned it before (I think) but I...
I’m no Peter but I am walking on water. Some days I’m afloat and other days I am drowning. Taking it a day at a time is a stretch that I cannot reach out for so I take it hour by hour. I need to find my point of focus, but the sky is foggy from my tears coming down like a downpour. My vision is misty but I can just about make out the man far ahead of me beckoning me to come. So close and yet so far. A battle of the mind. Tug of war between my faith and my reality. I am sinking. Faith 0....

Hey, how's it going? One thing that I am learning is the importance of being there for yourself. I'm not talking about self love but something else. Even when friends or family are there for you it is still important to be there for yourself. You cannot outsource it. But, why is it important to do it? It minimises offence. People have all the best intentions in the world but sometimes when push comes to shove they are nowhere to be found. Instead of being offended, try to focus on what you can...
Seeing that I did a Mothers Day version on Mothers Day it’s only natural that I do one for the Fathers on Father's Day right?Well, here goes! There are many fathers in the Bible but whether some are good or not is left for interpretation. I will share what I learnt studying some of the fathers in the Bible. Jethro Exodus 18: 9- 25 Jethro was a good father in law who saw Moses as one of his own. He brought his daughter and grandchildren to Moses and it was during this visit that he observed...

Another day with another friend Sending words of encouragement That it won’t last forever Except forever is here and refuses to leave I want a refund, I never signed up for this Please redirect the mail to someone else Because, Why me? It has been 11 long years, Not that I am counting of course. But at least I am counting something Even if it’s not my blessings And no, I am not surprised...
How has your year been? Great, abysmal or a 'let's not talk about it' kind of year. Either which way you're alive! At least you must be to be reading this so that counts for something right? As usual I am back again with my annual end of your blog post. I've been a bit quiet on this blog and that is because I have been discovering myself offline which will reflect in due time online. So, what were some of the lesson I learnt this year? Hmm. Quite a few but I will try to keep it short and sweet....

Another year another birthday. This time round I turned 24 on 1st December. Looking back on this past year and I am so grateful for everything. What a difference a year can make. I can honestly say that this year was my best so far and the lessons I have learnt have been pivotal. This was also the year that I graduated and travelled quite a bit too so all in all 23 was quite colourful. I really am excited about this new year and there will be changes- some that you will see on this blog in due...
As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17 (NIV) Iron sharpens iron. If God is indeed our friend and our God, He should be able to sharpen us. Have you watched a video of a blacksmith beating iron into submission? The beating is not meant to cause pain or damage but rather to refine the object. Now, imagine that you are the iron and God is 'beating' you into submission. Painful, right? Thing is, we are not objects but beings with flesh and a heart that beats and...

I came across a verse recently that really resonated with me and it is one that I am still meditating on but I have some thoughts on it now which I will share below. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves. 4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Philippians 2:3-4(KJV) The first thing that caught my attention is that we are to see others better than ourselves. What if...
*This post may be a bit long so get comfortable* On Tuesday, 24th July I graduated from University with a First in Hospitality Management and Food Studies but let's take it all the way back, to the beginning. Before University I'd decided to take a gap year for a number of reason but also clarity about my next step in life. I was not happy with my A- Level results and I decided to scrap the initial path that I had initially thought I would tow. I also used the year to redo some modules (in my...
