Presenting Me!

Nothing is as scary as showing one’s scars for all to see!  I have always been inspired by, and had a lot of respect for, people who are open and honest about their struggles, hurts and failures.  Until a couple of years ago, my life did not make sense, I lost what I thought was…

I have somewhere to go

I was glued to the television set when the recent hurricanes and tropical storms hit the Atlantic, watching its devastating effects – the uprooted  trees, the blown-off roofs, the massive flooding.  As I was watching, trying to imagine the distraught those affected must have been going through, something remarkable caught my eye – a camera…

I’ll be back soon

Hello there, It’s been a minute since my last blog post.  Giving hope, encouraging and inspiring lives is what I live for.  I have a tight schedule to get a project done … but I’ll be back soon. Thanks once again for the views.  I see you! Blessings

Thank You

Indomitable Woman

I was going through my old journals and notebooks when I came across a notebook with notes I had taken during my note-taking days, about ten years ago.  As I paged through it, I saw something about two remarkable women.  One of these is Harriet Tubman.  What caught my eye was the comment written in…

What is your shape?

There’s something about someone who does not fit society’s set standards for what is attractive, yet oozes confidence.  More often than not, this individual is well aware of these standards but has made up their mind not to be defined by anyone but themselves. Some were blessed to be raised by parents who instilled self-love…

I agree with it.  Don’t BE beautiful because you already ARE beautiful!  Let’s…

Bone in my throat

Have you enjoyed a delicious meal only to be rudely interrupted by a bone stuck in your throat?  I’ve had my fair share of those and it’s a horrible situation to be in.  I’m not much of a meat eater but I do enjoy roast chicken now and again.  There’s nothing like it!  But those…

My name is Freedom.  Do you have a minute?

Today is Freedom Day in South Africa.  I won’t lie, over the years, I’ve kind of forgotten about the significance of this day.  Lately, I’ve been looking back over my life and I’m amazed at how I’ve grown.  For some reason, last night I found myself reflecting on the meaning of this day and noticed…

Set me free!

I do not remember how or when we met. Life must have introduced you to my innocent mind. You came in my life and occupied every muscle and every bone, from the top of my head to the soles of my feet! Your presence overwhelmed and left me paralyzed in the most critical times, sending…
