Khoelife Organic Soap

I started using a range of organic soap from Khoelife. That was until my daughter had a chemical burn from one of the baby soap products. The product was marketed for babies. The incident happened in July and I’m still waiting for a resolution! Yvette Abrahams kept giving me the run around. Initially, she accepted […]

Mind numbing

Look to this day, for it is life. The very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existance. The bliss of growth. The glory of action. The splendour of achievement. Are but experiences of time. For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow a vision. But today, […]

Newton's 3rd Law

For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. With this in mind, I’ve been monitoring my site statistics quite closely. I only have one listen for my brand new podcast. This is worrying. I was very strategic about posting this time around. I discovered that Sunday’s are the days when my site has […]

No Worries

One of the most important lessons I learnt in journalism was: “If you manage to piss off both sides of the story, then you know you did your job well!” Certainly, not the kind of thing that an insecure eager-beaver such as myself wanted to hear. But it also happens to be the toughest lesson […]

I know you are

This meme caught my eye on Facebook. “I am not what you think I am. You are what you think I am.” How profound. We do tend to reflect ourselves in others and then hate them for it. I parted ways with a friend recently. It was rather acrimonious. Sadly. They say, honesty broke no […]

Strategic Thinking

It’s time to stop feeling sorry for myself. This constant drive to seek out validation, is driving me batty. So, as I pull myself up by the bootstraps, my perspective shifts. Suddenly its rainbows and butterflies. So I have all these fancy analytics tools. I can track my audience, gauge as to their likes and […]

Ethics

Aldo Leopold said: “Ethical behavior is doing the right thing when no one else is watching- even when doing the wrong thing is legal.” Well, I’m not exactly sure who said it. Google was not much help in this regard.

A holiday from race

It would be so lovely to go on holiday to a place where the colour of my skin isn’t an issue. It’s not really about the colour of my skin, per se. I could pass for white. But I have been classified as coloured. This comes with a burden of stereotypes that has proven cumbersome, […]

Hope

I’m standing on the cusp of greatness. My destiny. The reason I was put on this earth. Wait…is that too much pressure? Probably! But how else will I aspire to keep stepping one foot forward?! I am building a repository of my life’s work. Stories that I have poured myself into. There aren’t that many. […]
