New years seems to be equivalent with new beginnings, opportunities, big dreams and potential.But this time around instead of feeling excited I feel unprepared, uncertain and unsure of myself. That same feeling you get when you are faced with a blank page without having an idea of what you want to create beforehand - overwhelmed.
What I learnt from reading a proverb a day. This July I am re-reading the book of proverbs. Join me in reading a chapter a day for the whole month of July.
If we were all created for a purpose, on purpose, why do so few people seem to be living out and pursuing our purpose. We can get so caught up on finding our purpose or what it is, but once we have ‘found it’ or more accurately caught a glimpse of what God has purposed for our lives why is it so hard to live it out?
Yes, God WANTS to share your purpose, His plans and desire for your life with you. But, he wants YOU to DESIRE it. Therefore He invites us to ask Him for insight and wisdom. But, once you catch a glimpse of your purpose how to you live it out and keep moving in the direction of your purpose, read more...
Have you ever taken a risk? It’s like taking a giant leap off the boat into the ocean water, terrifying and exhilarating all at the same time. That’s how I would describe the quest to finding your unique God-given purpose. And that is exactly what it is, a quest.
I find this word “purpose” to be so definitive. It’s like when you decide on it that’s it, no changing. But, at the same time it’s seems so elusive. Something that you catch by chance, if you are lucky you stumble upon it. Purpose is something people always seem to be searching for.But how can you find something if you don’t actually know what you are looking for? (This is the first of a 4 part series)
It’s definitely been a while. And I apologise for my absence. But, the most important thing is I am back! Writing this blog, like most things in my life, has been a bit of a tug of war with God.
I used to feel impending doom. Brene Brown refers to it as foreboding joy. This is when things are almost too perfect, and we want to lower our expectations to protect ourselves from being disappointed or hurt. So instead of enjoying the peaceful, good moment, we imagine what could go wrong.
‘You is kind, you is smart, you is important.’ Have you ever heard of the snowflake generation? It's a new term that is being used to refer to the generation that has entered into adulthood from 2010. The word snowflake once had positive connotation and was used to describe children with a unique personality and potential.
We start off the new year energised excited and motivated. As we approach the half way mark of the year, how do we cultivate a sustainable spiritual routine?
It’s that time of year where time starts stretching out, and the Christmas holidays seem just too far away. Everyone is tired and agitated, longing for some downtime to just rest and recuperate from the long year. What are the little things you can prioritise to help fill your tank and keep you sane ‘til the holidays?
I suddenly found myself constantly surrounded by a lot of girls, and as we know girls tend to be very critical of each other and even more so of themselves. If a girl I perceived are more beautiful than myself, thought she was fat or was unhappy with her hair or the size of her thighs, what did that make me?
Hmm... let's nudge it 8 pixels to the left, 1 pixel down, 7 pixels right, 2 pixels up, 1 pixel right, 1 pixel down. Perfection! And also precisely back where we started. We can get so caught up in the details so much so that I regularly catch myself striving for perfection, how about you?
As I sit down and allow myself to dream for the year ahead I am overwhelmed by the amount of things I want to do. Things I want to achieve, Places I want to go, New things I want to start, Relationships to maintain, And also to grow spiritually. I sat frozen, not sure where to even start. So, instead of setting goals for 2018 I got up and left my empty notebook on the table.
When it comes to the well known saying: “Sink or Swim”, I have always considered myself a swimming person. Swim no matter what.
There is this belief that artists can only create their best work when they are miserable.
We’ve all been there: You travel all the way to work only to discover that you have left your laptop at home. Sometimes it’s just as simple as that you have to wake up early because the weekend is over. And the day suddenly becomes a ‘blue Monday’.
Who or what restricts us from achieving our true potential? Oftentimes, I feel like I am being held back. Like there is this invisible line, and to chase my dreams I need to first cross this unseen boundary.
“Sometimes I need to stop and remember that you are God and I am not.”
Have you ever broken a bone? Do you still remember the pain, or have you managed to block it out? I broke my first bone at the age of 20 in a not-so-typical way...
When we step back and give God room to move in our lives, He will start unraveling you. But, along with unraveling comes discomfort and uncertainty and, as I have recently realised, unraveling is merely the beginning.
Here’s to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem” We all admire people with big dreams. We all want to be dreamers. We all want to achieve something so much bigger than ourselves, and dreams give us that hope
I am writing this post as I am about to launch my first blog. I have spent hours writing, editing and setting things up. Along the way I have had my doubts: “Is this really what I should be doing? Why not just write blog posts, but never publish them?”
Our lives are a collection of moments and situations that all contribute to us learning much-needed skills and forming our identity. I remember the much younger version of myself running around and dreaming big audacious dreams. Let's awaken some dreams!
