Hurt People Hurt People


I’ve come to the realisation that hurt people can be so toxic, especially if they haven’t truly let it go. You can outwardly proclaim that it’s all in the past, but if you don’t INWARDLY let it go, too, you risk exposing others to the same bitterness that you suppress. Now, I feel the need…

See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil


I’ve found that I’m prone to some rather peculiar life experiences that often leave me bamboozled. I’m not a cynic, neither do I believe strongly in conspiracies or anything like that. But I do believe in divine intervention. Towards the end of October last year, I developed an eye infection/allergy similar to conjunctivitis. My eyesight…

Vivid (from a collection of short stories)


Twenty missed calls, sixteen messages, eight from Augustus and the rest she couldn’t remember… She is powerful. She knows she is. She is a powerful, attractive and vivacious woman full of energy and light. Her presence lights up a room, her essence illuminates the world brighter than the sun. When she speaks, her words draw…

What Are You Saying?


Speak positivity upon your life. Your situation may seem dire right now, but confess greatness, confess victory and keep working hard and trusting that the Lord shall help you across this river Jordan you’re facing. Remember the last time you were in a bind, and you thought the world was about to end for you?…

Reaping What You Sow – Believe, Work hard and Yield


We have come to the long overdue conclusion of the “Reaping what you sow” series, and I must say it’s been quite a journey. To remind everyone, these are notes-to-self that I create for my own consumption, but why not share with the rest of the world in case someone is going through the same,…

Moment of Truth


I'm one of those people who think they know themselves very well (it took a long time to get here), so when something's wrong or I'm acting out of character, it's relatively easy for me to notice. I try hard to be in touch with myself so I stay on top of things. So it…

Would You Date You?


DISCLAIMER: Please, this is not an invitation to slide in the DMs, that couldn't be any farther from the purpose of this blog post.  The truth is that most of us only have good things to speak about ourselves when we analyse a crisis we find ourselves in, telling ourselves we're good people who don't…

Let us begin


Originally posted on The Revolutionary Girls of Zimbabwe:
What and if are two very distinct words. However, when they are put together, they form a sentence that many of us wish we wouldn’t be asking ourselves at this point in life. What If I had tried….. What if I tried harder…. What if I never…

What’s the Problem? 


The problem isn’t that a person isn’t perfect enough nor that they were “corrupted” by power, fame or whatever else we all quickly point to when a person “falls”. The problem is that we love putting people on a pedestal, so much so that we can’t imagine them killing a spider. Someone once made me…

My Weight Loss Journey – The Ups and the Downs


Since childhood, I’ve always had issues with my weight. You can say I was on a yoyo situation where I’d gain weight, lose it, gain it again and so on. Arguably, when I was young it was more of “Baby fat”, but that gave me a hard time at school. For goodness sake I tried…

Reaping What You Sow Series 5 – How Bad Do You Want It?


What have you done today to work towards your goals/purpose/ambitions? What have you invested your time, money and effort in, that shall reap a reward that’s related to something you claim you desperately want (to have or to achieve)?…

Reaping What You Sow Series 4 – Something’s got to give


Hello dear reader! If you’re new to my blog, you probably won’t know that what I share stems from “Notes to Self”. I’m yet to get it right, as a matter of fact, I’m growing as we speak, encouraged by my readers’ comments, discussions and suggestions. So this is for all of us, I’m not…
