Hallo 2012! You Look Gorgeous…

2012 is finally here!!! Yaaay!!! I am so EXCITED about 2012!!! Ahh 2012, what took you so long? I love how the digits in 2012 are even numbers. 2012 just has a good ring to it, a huuuuuge contrast from last year. I have told everybody that this will be the year that I win the lottery. If I were you, I’d pick now to befriend me. Neh, I’m just kidding. I bet I’m coming across as chatty, loquacious, jumpy and stuff but I just want y’all to pick on the excitement I’m feeling for this new year, and I hope that it’s infectious. Happy New Year friends.

Life’s Little Tests… Of (Wo)men, Apples & Serpents

God created man in his own image. The garden of Eden became man’s abode. God allowed him to eat anything he wanted. Anything. Except to eat from the tree of knowledge (of good and evil). Man met a shrewd serpent. Serpent convinced man that he could be like God, if he ate from the tree of knowledge. Man loved the idea. Man tried to outshine God. Then God decided to remind man, that HE (God) was God. And man has tried to outshine God ever since. And God has reminded man that He is God ever since. Philosophical much? Continue reading

I got down on one knee, and…

I don’t know about you, but I am one person that hates, detests, dreads, fears conflicts. Supremely. But I heard that every relationship whether parent-child, sibling-sibling, friend-friend, colleague-colleague, lover-lover has these. Conflicts come with a lot of baggage. The awful sunk feeling that sits in the pit of one’s stomach. The puffed pride that manifests itself everytime you think to apologise and make things right. Nothing makes bleurgh so bleurgh than a conflict. If you ask me, conflicts are things the devil invented.

Last year in this post I shared with you how I fell out with some people in my life. So, there was this very special lady in my life who was among those. We kosanad. There was no confrontation, I walked out very quietly. A day turned into a week and before I knew it we hadn’t spoken to each other in over a year. Now this lady was so close to my heart, she was like a mother. That plus she is a close relative. Continue reading

Private Party

The other day, I had a life defining moment. An epiphany, if you like. I was just about tired of seeking for validation from everyone around me (don’t give me that look as if you don’t get such days). Then I asked myself a brutally honest question, “What if I break (myself), and still don’t fit?”

On this day, the world was spinning wildly. It’s as if I was losing my sanity. Everything in my life was looking bleak. I have felt like a failure many times. But on this day, I felt like the queen of fail-ville. My mind seemed to have this very high-end magnifying glass, the kind that only picks the negative stuff in your life, and makes it a million times worse. And I quickly add, its resolution makes that picture crystal clear. Almost like a reality. Continue reading
