Time Away

Sometimes I just need to get away from it all. The blinking cursor on my Excel spreadsheet, the four walls of my home, the same routine...routine can be beautiful, but only for as long as you can stand it. Then there are the same old thoughts that race through my mind. The questions...the what if's and ofcourse the why's!

Living in an Urban jungle is wonderful, but every so often I feel trapped by its concrete expanse. I feel towered over by familiar buildings, and that itch in my leg begs me to run wild, and I hear the African bush calling again.

There is always this tremendous longing in my heart to be lost, to be someplace else, to be far away from all this...There are some days when no matter what I say or do, it feels like I'm far away in another country and whoever is doing the translating has had far too much to drink!

Can I see Monday on the horison...absolutely...getting closer and closer just like a full moon rising! I need to go clear my head...

Bad Liar

...But still all we do is fear, oh oh...What could possibly happen next?...
Can we focus on the love?...
....Paint my kiss across your chest...
...If you're the art, I'll be the brush...

Yip...Guess I'm a f.a.b.ulous BAD LIAR...😜

Truth Is Like Water

The truth shall set you free. A phrase so commonly used. I like the analogy that truth is like water. There's no holding it back. You may be able to delay it, but eventually it seeps through the cracks, or creeps under the door. It's harder when we've been trying to keep it at bay. Why prolong the agony? It's better to be as honest as you can be as soon as possible at the moment, and that means candid conversations. Given the misconceptions and distrust swirling around, this might sound like challenging advice. But, if you approach the exchange with a positive attitude, you'll be surprised by the outcome.

It's Time

There comes a day, somewhere in the middle of every woman’s life, when Mother Nature herself stands behind us and wraps her arms around our shoulders, whispering

“It’s time.”

“You have taken enough now. It’s time to stop growing up, stop growing older, it's time to start growing wiser – and wilder.

There are adventures still waiting on you and this time, you will enjoy them with the vision of wisdom and the companionship of hindsight, and you will really let go.

It’s time to stop the madness of comparison and the ridicule of schedule and conformity and start experiencing the joys that a life, free of containment and guilt, can bring.”

She will shake your shoulders gently and remind you that you’ve done your bit. You’ve given too much, cared too much, you’ve suffered too much.

You’ve bought the book as it were and worn the t-shirt.

Worse, you’ve worn the chains and carried the weight of a burden far too heavy for your shoulders.

“It’s time” she will say.

“Let it go, really let it go and feel the freedom of the fresh, clean spaces within you. Fill them with discovery, love and laughter. Fill yourself so full you will no longer fear what is ahead and instead you will greet each day with the excitement of a child.”

She will remind you that if you choose to stop caring what other people think of you and instead of caring what you think of you, that you will experience a new era of your life you never dreamed possible.

‘It’s time’ she will say…

“to write the ending, or new beginning, of your own story.” ~ Donna Ashworth.

Hello there beautiful favourite time of year...the start of flowers blooming...sunshine days...barefeet...shorts...skimpy sun tops and long leisurely afternoons watching the sun go down...Question is - Am I going to be writing the ending or new beginning to my own story? Hmmm....I like the sound of a new beginning...
