    Are you reading enough books?

    One of my 2019 resolutions was to read books like never before. I kept it at a book a month. I must say, if reading isn’t for you, this commitment is a little bit extreme if you’re studying or working, or doing both like I am. However, for myself I’m enjoying it so far. Reading books is essential especially if you want to grow in certain aspects of life. It could be a personal thing or a professional growth strategy. I’m sure you can tell the difference between a person who reads and one who doesn’t. If you haven’t read any book in the last three months, hmm. Maybe try…

    Know your worth

    As young women in this new Era, it is very easy to get caught up into what society deems we need to be like. Only forgetting that after all we are our own persons. Many young people are prone to falling into depression, anxiety and or committing suicide than ever before. Have you ever asked yourself why? The answer is simple, we set standards that we ourselves can’t follow. Then expect everyone else to. When they don’t, we start labeling them into failures or rather not enough for us. For numerous years pear pressure has led to many young people doing things they are not so comfortable in doing all…

    Self made fortunes, can you do it?

    It has been making the rounds on social media that our very own Rihanna took it on her own hands to become a self made millionaire. From rags to riches, she is now a renowned successful musician and entrepreneur. Sources say musical guru is now worth $600M, 10 years post bankruptcy. Although some things may be questionable. The real question at hand is, can ordinary joe do it himself? Rihanna has set the bar here, and with that she has proven that hard work is paramount for any success. Especially for black folks. She really is representing. I’m going to put it out there, anything worth celebrating never comes easy.…

    LIFE LESSONS | Be at peace

    Today I just wanted to be a little off topic and talk about peace. Very few people are at peace. Be it about who they are, where they are in life and their capabilities. That is what kills us. Especially the young generation. What does being at peace mean? Differing concepts have a plurality of meaning to different people. That’s nothing new. I hear a lot of people say they are content or caption their pictures with the word ‘content’. It takes a lot of spiral turns to reach that point in your life and once you’re there, there’s no turning back. contentment kənˈtɛntm(ə)nt/ noun 1. a state of happiness…

    LIFE UPDATE : Career edition

    Those who know me know that I have recently graduated for my bachelor of Education degree at the University of Johannesburg. I have been at this for about four years and I must say, university life is not a joke. Many of us are not prepared for it. Which explains why there are a number of dropouts/exclusion yearly, and those who make it out then struggle to get jobs. Sad reality. So I’ve been job hunting from last year around May, that was when I was still in my final year. Doing so to prepare for 2018. Unfortunately with no luck which then I decided why not continue with my…
