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?…

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…

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)?…

New Year’s Resolutions


As we come to the end of 2016, it’s wise to take the time to reflect on the year, seeing what went well (and taking note of the reasons behind the success), what didn’t go so well (and taking note of what went wrong, what can be learnt from it and how that can be…

The Comparison Trap


“The most crippling thing you can do to yourself is to compare yourself to others. Your journey is unique, YOU are unique. Your story is unique. As a matter of fact, you should be PROUD that you’re not “regular”. You should be proud to be different from others. Don’t rush yourself simply because others are…

Let It Shine


My future truly excites me, and sometimes it scares me to the point where I feel overwhelmed. But then I remember a quote I once read, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens…

Why on earth should I “grow up”? 


In exactly 6 months from this day, I’m going to be 21 again. I must say, I’m extremely nervous about all the things awaiting me in the future: the added responsibilities, moving out, kickstarting a career, the possibility of looking after another human being besides myself, accomplishing my dreams, goals and all that jazz 😖 To…

Let It Go (again)


About 2 years ago, I shared my thoughts on letting go. I touched on forgiveness, letting go of grudges and any negativity etc. The thing about life is that we constantly have to revisit so many things we’ve told ourselves to do. So today, I’m back again, urging myself and anybody else in a similar…

Bare necessities of Happiness


   When I literally created my own happiness. (I’m a chocoholic 🙋🏾) Happiness is such a simple thing, yet we all struggle to find it, and sometimes we try to find it in all the wrong places. Just like any other emotions like sadness and fear, I personally believe that happiness is within our control….
