Ordinary People


The world is made up of all sorts of people . In our journey of life we meet some really amazing people who inspire us ,care for us and most of all appreciate us.

And then we meet some monsters , people who are fake , self absorbed and just want to hurt us. These people use us emotionally , drain us and then toss us to the kerb like a used can after fulfilling their needs at that point in time. Its awful that these people have no heart and think nothing of hurting others. I have had my experience with many of these monsters who started off as Ordinary normal people but then mutate once we let our guard down and let them into our inner circle. They then show their true self once we let them in and this is very scary. I am so glad to have gotten rid off several of these monsters from my life .They drained me emotionally drained and sucked away all my positive energy. One monster I met in London really was one of note she always put me down, passed negative comments and used me luckily I escaped from her clutches and kinda disappeared into almost thin air where she could not get hold of me. She has befriended me of Facebook and tries to fish me for information on my life .But I have become wiser and I aint afraid of this monster no more , I offer very little information and often give her the silent treatment. Monsters however dont come in the female form only but male as well. The male ones are very damaged , looking to hurt and use others then turn their backs and walk away without turning back on the damage and destruction they have left behind. I had the pleasure of meeting one male monster last year and boy was he a work of art damaged and fake to the core. I was saved from his clutches and refuse to let him emotionally drain me again.

I firmly believe that we meet these monsters on our life journey to teach us lessons. Sometimes we feel so betrayed and hurt by these monsters that we cant see the true reason they are set on our journey.Life has taught me to be positive , be happy and rid these monsters from my life . I cant fix all these monsters with their damaged pasts cause some people are not meant to be fixed ……So instead I thank them for their life lessons and appreciate the amazings friends I have all over the world, friends who love, care ,inspire and support me .I AINT AFRAID OF NO MONSTER (sung in the Ghostbusters theme song lol)

So in the words of John Legend…..We just Ordinary People……we dont know which way to go …..

My new hobby


This long weekend I went up to Pretoria to visit my amazing cousins and to go to the John Legend concert. So during dinner on Thursday night at the great Tasha’s in Brooklyn, the topic of my blogging became dinner table conversation.

My aunt and uncle were both pretty interested in this new hobby of mine and were asking lots of questions. This was such a great feeling I felt like I was been interviewed. I was asked so what do I write about , to this my cousins who have been reading my blogs filled in the parentals.

This convo continued for awhile and went on to the fact this could be the start of a new career/ field for me. The parentals did ask for my links as well so that they could also read my online thoughts.

Then on Friday while waiting to get into the John Legend concert at the Sandton convenction centre , I was asked which media house I was from . I was gobsmacked and said no i was not from a media house. But this got me thinking , do i have the look of a person in media/PR , do i give off the impression I am a writer. I recalled a Twitter conversation with an editor of a popular South African Magazine Kojo Baffoe on blogging and how his hobby became his now career.

So I chatted away to cousins about this on the way home after another amazing day out and came to the conclusion that they both see me changing careers going into the Media/ PR fields and that they see me just so suited for this. This convo is still playing in my head as a possibility for the future.

The world is indeed my oyster will a million possibilities , blogging is my first step in the world of Media . Who knows where this new hobby of mine will lead to but so far I am loving every moment …..

Ciao for now my techno loving people ……Till later have an amazing week filled with endless possibilities……….
