This is me...

Okay, so this is the first time in a very long time that I’m sitting down and writing again. Ever since I’ve finished matric and gone to varsity I’ve experienced writer's block, (even though I’m studying Journalism.) It’s only recently that I have gathered the courage to put my thoughts on paper again. After thinking about the past two years I realised just how much I have grown (up) and changed into a person with responsibility, loyalty and big dreams for the future. Thus, it was impossible for me to write anything that made sense during this period because I, myself didn’t know what I wanted to do in life and who I really was. 

I’ve lost contact with most of my friends after school. A phone call here and there, yes, but everybody is too pre-occupied with their own plans for the future to really make an effort. Nothing is like it used to be and somehow, I’m okay with that. I’ve learned a lot about life, love and myself during the (now) two-year relationship with my boyfriend, Monre. He taught me what to expect from life and how to prepare for the good, the bad and the ugly. He supported me through all the changes and was there for me when everybody else went their separate ways. He picked me up and dusted me off several times when life threw me down and for that I’m forever grateful to him. 

Now, I wake up in the mornings with a goal in mind and it feels great being back on the path to my future. There are still many articles, blogs and great inspiration to come, so be sure to return regularly to see what life has to throw at me!


  1. Good luck girl!
    Don't forget to have loads of fun along the way. When you look back one day...it's all the bumps, falls, pick me ups, tears and laughs that make you who you are. Enjoy every minute and keep writing!!
    Remember...real girls aren't perfect and perfect girls aren't real.

  2. Looking forward to following your blog! I always find it difficult to get inspired...so now, I write whatever comes to mind :) Good luck!
