Viva, Progress


When I think of progress, I think of the way my perception of the world has changed, and how I treat myself as a person. A lot of my principles have evolved in the past year, and I’ve seen a genuine change even in the way I conduct myself and the things I accept from…

Musings of a Commuter – Rivalries and Adjusting Routine


I have an unspoken rivalry with this gentleman on my 6:35AM train to London. Believe it or not, this rivalry is over a seat. Yep, a seat. The window seat in the middle section of the quiet zone, to be precise. We’ve never verbally spoken about it, neither have we behaved maliciously towards each other…

An Encounter…


So, we both heaved deep sighs and in our eyes lay the unequivocal look of longing, reminiscing on the mutual gut-wrenching, heart breaking experiences we’d been through. Like grapes on a vine, our minds and hearts were wired the same way, intertwined by our shared emptiness, the gaps our former lovers had left where nothing…

Destiny


The story of Ruth On the 1st of January I had a revelation (I reckon it’s actually my very first revelation so I’m quite excited). Here goes: (Read all of the book of Ruth for full context.

Quick Monday Motivation


“Going through something” is tough, but it should actually bring hope You’re going “through”, meaning there’s an end out of which you are to emerge BUT you HAVE to go THROUGH it; not around it, not away from it. Face your giants with COURAGE and FAITH #FoodForThought Instead of praying or wishing for your problems…

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,…
