So I’m sitting on my patio contemplating the world and my world when a quote pops up in my mail, “What you tolerate become your standard.” It’s a pretty powerful statement and certainly packed with lots of wisdom. I however wanted to take it one step further and say, “What you accept becomes your future”. […]
WINNING IN TOUGH TIMES
By Tracy Hutchins. Have you ever found yourself going through a tough patch in your life? It just feels like everything around you is caving in, all that was familiar, comfortable, fun, now seems foreign and scary. You may have found yourself there more than once, maybe after a relationship breakup or perhaps you have […]
How do you define success?
Success and what success means to people can really spark a debate. Success is different for different individuals. Success is personal. Success is controversial. What one deems as success another may frown upon. Sometimes success is equated to riches. We are judged by our title, the home we live in, the cars we drive and […]
Ingredients to create a blended family
So… we all remember the fairy tale that starts with “once upon a time”, and ends with “they all lived happily ever after.” What we often forget is what happens in between. Sometimes we simply choose to forget and other times it is easier to let bygones be bygones. When I met Martin, truth be […]
Change your thoughts, change your life.
If my best friend had to speak to me the way I speak to myself, I would probably punch them. What a silly statement but what a profound thought. Why do we give ourselves permission to say things to ourselves that we would never dream of saying to anyone else. I’m so fat, I’m useless, […]

You battle to think of the […]
Creatively avoiding conflict
I’m very passionate about a word and that word is, “Perception”. So often conflict in the home, at the office, on the school playground and almost anywhere else, could be avoided if we looked to understand each other as individuals, as opposed to finding fault, when we don’t share the same beliefs as others. I […]
The need for change
Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Tinder, WeChat, are words that could literally cause you to break out into a cold sweat. Everything today is done on an app or found online. We are living in such a fast paced world and we really need to find a way to keep up, hence these blogs. So, what’s […]
Have you made a real decision?
How often do you feel you have made a decision and for some reason you are not able to carry through on it? I think everyone, at some stage in their lives is familiar with this feeling. We make up our minds to go on diet and then someone offers us a slice of chocolate […]
Leadership by default
Leadership is a very spoken about word and it is safe to say we all need Leadership. The sad thing about Leadership is, that although the word implies good, there are so many ineffective leaders in our society today. Leaders with the wrong intentions. Leaders that lead for self gain, political leaders who lose their […]
