  • This could be easier.

    How many times have you thought that life could have been easier?

  • Drink more coffee. Get more done.

    Productivity and the hustle are at an all-time high in society. Whether you’re trying to find your purpose, keeping busy at home or pushing through work, we’re often told to grab a cup of coffee and get more work done.

  • Selah.

    Raise your hand if you think that 2020 is the year that just keeps on giving! With all the activity going on in the world at large, it seems to be hard to find a moment to stop and gather your thoughts. If you’re anything like me, the last 6 months have been a blur, and finding a moment to pause and breathe has felt like grasping at straws.

  • Are you still watching?

    “Are you still watching?” My biggest issue with seeing this question pop up on Netflix is actually considering how many episodes I’ve actually been watching to warrant being asked this question. We’ve all been utilising our time at home differently.

  • Life in lockdown

    On the heels of the Covid-19 pandemic, South African leadership took the decision to enter into a lockdown period at 00:00 on the 26 March 2020.

  • I have a confession!

    Raise your hand if 2020 has already been a rough year! If that’s you, then you’re not alone. I stand firmly planted and eagerly awaiting the Christmas holiday again, because this year has been way too long.

  • The waiting room

    I’ve always been unsettled by hospitals. As a biological science student and an avid watcher of House MD, hospitals leave me unsettled to say the least

  • Bah humbug!

    Bah humbug! I know many people that fall into this category of humans.

  • When you least expect it

    Have you ever prayed about something with so much fervency that it started to feel less like prayer and more like harassment? I’m sure it’s not just me who spent months, I dare say years, praying and asking God for direction, purpose or answers to prayers and promises. Around a year ago, I wrote about waiting. Waiting on God for His answers in His timing is difficult because we’re human. We live in a time that wants things quicker than a microwave can turn out.

  • I’m just not that interesting

    I’m just not that interesting. I’ve never really thought of myself as being particularly interesting or special. Yes, I’ve managed to get by with VERY little effort on my part and I’ve been blessed to have a supportive family and friends around me to give me a nudge when I’ve needed it. In retrospect though, I’m probably just not that interesting.
