    Be your own bestfriend

    Mantra You cant pour from an empty cup… Love yourself first One of my favorite quotes that i use daily to affirm myself into a positive outlook. We worry ourselves a lot about what other people think of us, that we forget what is really significant is what you think of yourself. Take a moment and look into the mirror, ask yourself – if you were your best friend, what advice would you give to yourself about your greatest fear? i tried this one morning, and i realized that my biggest fear at that moment was failure. That has resulted in me doubting my abilities that i hid my ‘talents’…

    A feminist society : Hear the women’s cry!

    The recent outbreaks in the news and social media about women missing, women being murdered and or women being raped have been appalling. Although this is no new news, it has definitely sparked a lot of attention on activism and women led movements (feminism). I write in tears, my heart booming like a bomb. It is scary being a women in this current time. We need change in society. A change in the views of society. We need men to start respecting us for who we are. The time for objectifying women should come to an end. We need a society that understands that being a feminist needs not mean…

    It’s ok to be a work in progress

    Life gets to a point where you feel as if things aren’t going the way you had initially wished they would. It is as if what ever work you try to put in goes into vain. Most of us have been through such a period of time if we aren’t actually going through such. Which is why I though I should share some words of encouragement to keep you going. They say for you to appreciate the fruits of your labor you need to have worked really hard for them. Which is generally true, things that come easy often leave easy. Seemingly because we don’t nourish them as much as…

    Letter to my younger self

    “I used to think people were like lighthouses. That they were there to protect you. But they’re not. People are like whirlpools. They pull you in; they drag you under. You have to work so hard just to keep your head above water.” • Lang Leav, Sad Girls Looking back at how things used to be, at how you used to do things… looking back at how you used to see yourself and at how you used to take in what is given to you by the world… Many have so many regrets about their past lives and wish they could have done things differently. Of course, there’s nothing wrong…

    Peer pressure – Is it still prevalent in current times?

    The concept ‘peer pressure’ has been making waves back then when I was in high school. Unsurprisingly it still is in the current curriculum. Why are we still learning about it? The word peer pressure comes from or rather refers to the influences that our peers have on us that initially we didn’t desire. Having to engage into something merely because your friends are doing so and for the fact that you believe they will reject you or think you aren’t as cool if you don’t… that should be a red flag. Some even go to extreme lengths of ‘removing’ others from the squad because of their ability not to…

    Journals, are they still necessary in current times?

    Remember back in 2006 where we would turn a two quire book into a journal with a get to know me page and little messages. Those were the days, we would even write song lyrics and questionnaires. In the age of digital advancement, we went past those times. But journaling is still a thing. However in a different and productive way. We now call them ‘planners’. They look more advanced and are used to help up be more productive and professional in what we do. I’m not trying to bash anyone, but if you don’t have a planner, maybe try educating yourself on one. It doesn’t have to be physical…

    The viability of education and learning

    I had a very interesting conversation with my learners today. As a teacher I always try to encourage them to study and never stop studying. This is because this world we live in requires one to be educated for them to leap into success. One of them said to me, ‘school and studying isn’t for me, I’m a pretty young man I’ll become a model or actor’. As stunned as I was, I then asked him, ‘you’ll be an uneducated model all your life?’, with all these already successful models and actors who are constantly educating themselves in their industry. In essence what I was trying to explain to them…
