Living Life

Dichotomies of Life

Holding onto right or wrong as no middle can be chosen

Dichotomous thinking, black and white, best and worst

Life experiences bringing on fight or flight

Irrational thinking, leading to war forgetting about peace

Hope forever blighted, feeling defeated

Seeing things, as either perfect or failure

Feeling bitter, disappointed and frustrated

Finding it hard to sustain life at those extremes

Time to choose the opposite of dichotomy

Reframing so needed, stop jumping to extremes

Embrace a new outlook by accepting, agreement and harmony

Hope in the Face of Humanity

I see the face of our dear beloved Madiba, the father of our nation, Nelson Mandela. As South Africans we celebrate the former late President Nelson Mandela’s birthday in July. 18 July has been declared Nelson Mandela International Day. This affords me the opportunity to heed the call to encourage us all to make a difference. As South Africans a call goes out to give 67 minutes of your time to any act of kindness on this day.

Blessed, Peaceful and Content

The global pandemic has caused mass trauma and rapidly transformed every aspect of our lives. This also led to many of us showing anxiety and fear because of the negative impacts stirring through all facet of society. The symptoms of trauma can manifest itself differently in individuals and will most probably continue to emerge long after the pandemic is under control. Whilst we are all experiencing the trauma and stress at certain periods, our levels of stress and reaction to the trauma also varies. Some people are wired to be more anxious and others to be more laissez-faire. Several people might also have difficulty accepting or understanding the change that has taken place.
