“I’m just a Vintage Soul” Does anyone still use any of the above except for display? Postcards have been replaced with Social Media and Whatsapp, Typewriters replaced with your laptop keyboard, and the telephone replaced with the cellphone. These items have become vintage, something of wonderment, to look at and admire for being something useful from long time ago. Long Time Ago? I’ve never been a fan of writing by hand, simply because my handwriting is atrocious. At primary school when rulers weren’t used for drawing lines, they doubled up to give someone with my lack of handwriting skills a few whacks…

So sorry!  It’s been a while since I’ve written and by no means did I plan to stay away this long.  Writing to you requires a special space in my mind with no distractions. It gives me an opportunity to write to you and only you. HELLO WINTER Winter finally arrived with a big storm. While it left some unhindered, others homeless, displaced and mending their homes, it has also brought along the warmth of a community, who gives and comes to the aid of those who need it. #BlessOurCommunity RAMADAAN IN WINTER The best month of my year has to be Ramadaan.  I tend…

Hello Dreamers The title of this post is all about waiting for permission.  When you are ready to sore and yearning to fly – then why wait for someone to tell you , “You are ready”? We must learn to believe in our abilities and push ourselves to the extreme. If we fear moving forward then the fear will be a reality in everything we wish to do.  If we believe we have the ability regardless of the outcome we will push forward determined to fulfill that which we most desire ~ no matter how many brick walls we encounter. Determination…

Sometimes my day is quite blurred with no productive plan in sight, but a hope that the wind will blow me in the right direction.  I rely on prayer and guidance and the support of the people who surround me to keep me grounded.  On these days I am paying attention to signs, information and seeking the possibilities and opportunities the day may reveal. On otherdays I am goal driven and have productivity in sight and there is no stopping me. I’m like an arrow moving full speed ahead with no breaks to slow me down.  On these days I…

I walk this life with every step as a new beginning or an enhancement of who I was yesterday. Although their are thousands who’ve left their footprints before me, I see them, I’ve learned from them but my footprints are not the same as there’s. Our journey through life is one that can only be expeienced wholly through the doors we wish to open, the people we come into contact with and the treasures that are left only for us to find. It is a beautiful journey if we see the beauty. It can be a difficult journey if we see ourselves as…

I’ve grown to love the communications industry so much, that I took up a degree in communication science and loved it profusely. It granted me the opportunity to understand myself and the world around us, and how our interactions are built from a vast amount of our own life experiences.The knowledge and experience I gained over the years of working in various business sectors; small business enterprises, community organisations, corporate and entrepreneurial, has given me a substantial amount of insight in the do’s and dont’s of communication . e.tv department teambuilding – encouraging better communication between colleagues After landing in…

1 Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. KHALIL GIBRAN 4 He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.

I remember the day clearly. My 3year old daughter jumping on top of my back, while I was studying for an upcoming exam.  My husband decides to take her for a walk to my sister in laws house, not too far from where we lived.   The phone call that followed 20mins later, had my heart pumping louder than ever ….   Sound of the cell phone rings – My phone is on its last two bars –  My husband out of breath able to let out only a few words   – come now – dog – attack -…

Yes, I handled a rifle, wore the whole khaki outfit and crawled through mud….You may be thinking Why In The World would anyone sign up to join the army.  At the age of 16 I was quite the adrenaline seeker, so hiking, abseiling, netball, high jump, sprints and cycling activities was all good with me. High School was a reflection of who I became, As President of the Interact club, Director of the Drama Club, Vice President of TADA, Fundraiser of the Muslim Society, on the debate team, organiser of school events, it is no wonder my life today is as…

How are you feeling today?  My emotions tell me so much about myself and  how I view and interact with people around me.  Emotions control my performance, physical health, mental health and relationship with others. Understanding  how I fit in the world and what my role in it is, I’ve been able to learn how to deal with people and things around me much better.  It’s true, that most things come with experience, but you can also learn from others who’ve been through the mill and developed tools and mechanisms to cope with the daily grind, and more so, ourselves. …
