Consistency

While work is still going good, I cannot hep but reflect on my own bravery. Yes, bravery! In short this week has been challenging but I handled it like a pro. If I did not have God on my side, I don’t know where I would be. So some people will totally disagree with me but, you know what, you are not me and you did not have to make the decision, I did.

So a new guy started in our office and he sits and waits for work to be handed to him, while I slave away from like an hour before he is set to start in the morning and he leaves at 3pm while I still have to stay until 4:45pm. So the thing is, he earns the same as I do and I thought that would completely irk the marrow out of my bones but I am quite okay with it.At the end of the day, whatever I do with my money is my business and if I overspend, it is also my own doing. To be mad at him for earning the same would be silly.

So I just brushed off the fact that he is here and earns more and moved on with my life not begrudging or hating him. God has everything to do with my attitude. I will be rewarded in another way!

Be consistent in life and expect to be blown away… by yourself LOL. Do not let the enemy make things seem bigger than they are. This is what I think happened!

Luke 14:13-14…

Luke 14:13-14
But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.”

Carousing in Favour!

My newest venture is something I am absolutely passionate about. I am feeding the poor and needy again this year and nothing will stop me. Together with 2 lovely ladies named Lesley and Leana, who will be  joining me on this magical journey to create smiles and laughter and fill bellies to the rafter LOL.

We doing a sit-down lunch with a main course meal and dessert. 40 lovely ladies and gents will each bring a child or 2 from their own communities to part take in this gesture. We are bubbling over from excitement as our dearest and nearest friends and family are sharing this glorious occasion with us.

The tinsel and trimmings are about to get dusted off as we prepare for the best Festive Season yet! Making kids happy has always been something I strive for and to have 2 other people who share my vision alongside me on this project is only but a Blessing from God.

So here’s to the best event ever under my belt. To the passion my partners exude and the love and laughter set to be put in motion on the 16th December 2012.

I drink to that (eggnog of course)!!!

Nestling in the realisation

I tried to make sense of recent events but to no avail so I have learned to live and let live on this one. On the bright side sitting all cosy under the wing of my dearly beloved, watching the latest installment of the Paranormal Activity franchise, as all the demonic activity in the movie makes you cringe, you look at your spouse who’s heavily in anticipation of what’s to come in the movie, and you realise that the mere fact that you can at least agree on one movie, (scary as hell) is enough to see drama in any shape or form through. 

I taught my one year and 10 month old daughter to play a game of snakes and ladders with my son and I the other night and right on cue she grabbed the dice and rolled it only for it to land on 6 . Shockingly my son and I watched on as she put her little read disc on the board where I pointed. So observant and eager. I took a leaf out of her book and reminded myself of a child of that ages’ attentiveness. How truly amazeballs they are at that age and how they can completely shift your frame of mind from the atrocities of your day to the total bliss of just laughter and fun. While my son made it to square 99 on the board game, I found my blue disc still off the board as I failed to roll the dice into a six. Did luck have anything to do with my kids kicking my butt in the game? Let’s leave that question hanging rhetorical. I loved spending time with my family, whether it was just by watching a movie or getting ‘played’ by 2 kids under the age of 6.

I am nestling in the things said and done to make me feel either adequate or inadequate. I will hold forth my faith and let my passion for life unfold in its everyday activities. I vow not to forget my P’s and Q’s and spend as much time laughing as I am breathing.

Que sera sera!

Messy Business

Why is it that once one thing in your life becomes stable, the other thing you actually had control over starts to plummet? In recent years, I have been appointed, demoted and promoted all at the same company. Cray cray…I know (0_0) I have learned and grown through it all.

Now this blog was inspired by all the daily drama I have been faced with and in light of all my good efforts and attempts to live a prosperous life.

I hope you enjoy this journey with me as we embark on the ups, the downs, the divorce proceedings, the substance abuse and the pure joy of motherhood and the likes; and in no particular order and by no means are all these my own situations…

Stay tuned 🙂
