Food For Thought… Have you ever gone through a period in life where everything seems to be falling into place? Picture this… You’ve got a good job, personal business is going well and your main squeeze isn’t given you an headache. Life can’t get any better than this right? To watch things fall into place is one of the best feelings ever! ‘Life is good’ becomes your favourite slogan. However, things can change for the worst in a blink of an eye. How do you deal with life when it takes a toll on itself? Do you just complain about your problems? That’s where the quote ‘When life gives you lemons, make lemonade’ comes into play. Everyone knows that life’s a bitch. It isn’t scared to hand you some lemons when things are going well for you. Beyoncé’s album Lemonade touched on this quote. Her album was about a bunch…

Food For Thought… Earlier this week, I had a conversation with a friend about one of my blogs called ‘Birds Of A Feather Flock Together..’ If you haven’t had the chance to read this blog, make sure you click HERE to give it a read #ShamelessPlug. Anyways, he was telling me how he has different groups of friends that correspond to different aspects of his personality. He noticed that some friends are more ambitious than others and went on to asking me about my friendship circles. ‘Of course I have different groups of friends! Who doesn’t lol?’ was my response to him. The difference is obvious when you compare the banter and the conversations you have with all your friends. After going back and forth on this topic, we concluded that not everybody wants to be an entrepreneur. Self-employment is NOT for everyone and that’s perfectly fine! Please don’t mistake the message in ‘Birds Of A Feather Flock Together..’ for the wrong one. I’m…

Food For Thought… The weekend is nearly here. So before you head off to the pub to get a couple of cans in with your mates, let me share a quote with you: ‘Birds of a feather flock together’. What kind of people are you surrounded by? Positive people or people who just like to gossip and celebrate someone’s downfall? Do you surround yourself around go-getters or talkers who NEVER action what they say they are going to do? Whatever energy you are surrounded by will rub off on you! I’m a living proof of this. My friends always used to talk about starting their own business or brand in the WhatsApp group chat. I wasn’t interested in the conversation so I muted the chat. But ever since I started engaging in the conversation, my attitude towards life has changed. Now I want to run my own business one day and be successful too! What about you? If…

FOOD FOR THOUGHT FOR THE WEEKEND… Has there ever been a right time to say goodbye to your loved ones? Hmmm… A lot of people want to live forever and don’t think about death at all. Life can be taken away from you in a blink of an eye. No one’s promised tomorrow. So why do some of us still take people for granted? It didn’t hit me until my grand mum passed away a couple of weeks ago. She was in her late 70’s and didn’t have the greatest health. I still didn’t see it coming… She was the last one, the only grandparent I had left… She was immortal to me, just like my parents. Nobody likes to think about their parents dying, let alone other family members and friends. But a day will come where everyone’s time on earth will run out… I wish I made more of an effort when she was…
