BLEH……

sad

Over the course of the last 3 weeks , I have been feeling rather down. At times I feel so fustrated , annoyed and demotivated.A handful of friends have noticed this change in me and have stood by me.

I havent blogged as I havent felt motivated enough to do so. I am sorry ! Over the last few months since my involvement in The Magnifying Glass http://themagnifyingglass.co.za , my life has been such a rollercoaster of excitement.So many opportunities have come my way and I have met some pretty amazing people.And then this brings me back to my day job, the one that pays the bills.For the last few weeks there has been so much uncertainity at work in terms of strikes.A job I once loved seems like such a chore these days.I literally drag myself to work each day and wish the hours away.

I am sure this is not how its meant to be.So last week at my lowest I sent my POUT sisters an email telling them how I felt instantly I had 5 replies of love , understanding and advice. You ladies rock !

This morning my inspirational friend Sue Levy called and whispered words to the wind of where my career is heading.Sue , I love you my friend for always knowing the right thing to tell me.

As I got off the phone with Sue, I had an email from a popular 5FM DJ about her new programme , it was a Press release and boy did I feel honoured.

“Dear Universe , I am putting out there what I want , my nearest and dearest know what my heart desires and have been whispering it in the wind.I am waiting for the wind of change and for new direction.”

So heres hoping there is light at the end of the tunnel and the Universe hears my plea.

Have an amazing week:)

sue

A few months ago , I was approached by Sue Levy from http://suelevy.co.za asking me if I would like to contribute to her amazing blog.

NOW for those of you who do not know who Sue Levy is ……Sue is an amazing inspirational and motivational speaker , blogger and writer who empowers women to harness their power and change their lives.Therefore been asked to contribute was a huge thing for me. If you havent go on go and check out my contributions http://suelevy.co.za .

Thus started my friendship with Sue.Sue and her lovely family moved from Cape Town to Pretoria fairly recently and I introduced my lovely cousin Karmani to Sue.

This weekend I was so blessed to meet Sue and her family. When I saw Sue it was instantly hugs and kissed and it was if I had met an old friend who I had not seen for ages. I felt so in awe of Sue , her achievements and how amazing she is as a person. Though Sue’s visit was very short , it has strengthened our bound and Sue is now part of my family.I got to spend time with Sue talking about my dreams, my blogging, my life and The Magnifying Glass.I truly feel so blessed an inspired to have met a soul like Sue on my life journey. Its so amazing the people God sends into your life when others walk out.

Thank you Sue, for coming into my life ! I totally love and adore you and feel this is just the start of our friendship.Its so amazing how we clicked from the first email and how everything just fell into place after that….To new memories, lots of laughs, lots of adventures and lots of tea and cupcakes along the way….

TMG

A few weeks ago my friend Kaveshan Chetty called me and we had a chat about creating a website for bloggers.Three weeks later this has become a reality.

So what is TMG ?

TMG is a magazine style blog which serves as a platform to showcase the work of bloggers thus giving them exposure to brands. I as a blogger know how difficult it is to get noticed by a brand.That is why TMG MAKES SENSE !

TMG launched 14 July 2013 with a Facebook page and a Twitter handle.

A week later we had over 33 blog posts and 5 guest bloggers busy sending in daily contributions. The site is updated daily with new blog posts and a daily picture of the day taken by a photo blogger.

TMG is going places watch this space:)
