Living Life


As we approached the end of the year, it’s really a good time to reflect. I decided to reflect by looking at my 22 blogs posted previously.

Blog 1: Sanity During Lockdown – Sanity prevails and I continue to love myself in order to provide myself the opportunity to move through this time with deeper compassion for others.

Blog 2: You’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t! – We cannot escape the consequences of our decisions in whatever we do.

Blog 3: The show must go on! – I have to keep on pushing forward. The show must go on!

Blog 4: 20Plenty of Time – This year I have experienced plenty of time for introspection, evident in these blogs I have posted.

Blog 5: For the Love of the Arts – This blog brought attention to the challenges facing live events, music and performing art sectors.

Blog 6: Let’s create our own rhythm – For me it was important to allow life to gradually return to normal and to start creating my own rhythm, even if it was different than before.

Blog 7: The Story of Hansel and Gretel living with Covid-19 – I shared a personal story from someone that contracted the virus. This virus is real!

Blog 8: On a Lighter Note – I believe that humour can help us cope and can bring about clarity and calmness. We as a family often, through laughter, somehow see things on a lighter note that helps us get through life events.

Blog 9: Positive… – Follows on explaining how we can make sense of our world by living our lives to the best of our ability. I hope I can continue writing positive narratives that will help me focus on the good in any given situation.

Blog 10: Corona Stop – This was an article I shared written by Professor Theo van Wyk. It was interesting and wonderfully insightful.

Blog 11: You May Be as Different as the Sun and the Moon – I hope to remain open-minded, to respect and accommodate others for who they are. Between our differences and similarities lies an individual.

Blog 12: Health Matters Matter – In this blog I shared someone’s personal health journey. It is always good to take care of our health.

Blog13: Voices from the Margins – I wish that we all stop with the stigmatisation just because they are different from us and have their own beliefs.

Blog 14: Lessons Learned –  A lesson in care and consideration and a reminder that it’s never an inconvenience to care and be kind.

Blog 15: Blessed, Peaceful and Content – I also experienced anxiety and fear in this time, but to feel peaceful and content nurtures and nourishes my soul in a very satisfying way and it gives me a sense of peace.

Blog 16: I Believe… – To believe brings contentment and excitement, it encourages me to continue hoping for a better tomorrow!

Blog 17: What’s in a name…I say – How do you identify in this time or how do you prefer to identify to life?

Blog 18: The Mind and Possibilities – I must remind myself that an open mind produces positivity and generates plans with so many possibilities.

Blog 19: You Choose – ‘What do you choose?’ I hope to choose faith over fear consistently.

Blog 20: What Would Love Do? – I love this question and it’s a question to consider every time before I act or make decisions.

Blog 21: PersistenceI want to aspire to be more persistent, but always to be persistent in a positive way.

Blog 22: Is it my season to bloom? – Another pivotal question for me to consider in order to strive to be a better person.

What’s your reflections?

I believe in God, love and life! Married to my friend, mentor and rock. We have been blessed with two beautiful girls. My personal journey provides opportunities for me to empower individuals to lead better lives. I have had a real desire to work with people for a long time and have always been fascinated with human behaviour and understanding how the mind works.
I love the following quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. “Remember that children, marriages and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get”

Your post is lovely. To answer your ending question, I am reflecting on the opportunity that exist within the pain and loss of this year. The very tangible ways in which we are connected and impact each other and the love and care (individual and societal) that could come from this learning if we listen. My intention is to always listen. 🤍
