I hung out with a couple of amazing women at the end of last year, one of them looked at me as said “You look like you’ve had a chilled year” and I couldn’t help but laugh. There are so many things that happened in 2018 but I just chose not to “carry on my head” because if I did I probably won’t be able to look “chilled”  When I look back at the beginning of the year and everything that went down, I can only say taking one day at a time is what helped. I started this year …

Clichés and fake deep instagram posts – 2018 in review by Moyo

Lessons Learned in 2018 I know I have a lot to write about 2018 but I have thought about the best way to pen it down without overwhelming my readers with a wealth of information. My usual metaphoric representations or theme- based soliloquies? Raw emotions or filtered psalms? Since this is a post about 2018 lessons learned, I’ll stick to the conventional. If you know me, you know how much I do not like clichés but because God has a sense of humor, my year was like a mesh of fake deep Instagram quotes woven together to make an actual …

With each passing day and watching the events happening around politics in our nation, one cannot but conclude that we are indeed in a big mess as a nation.

Nothing is out of his loop, I never fully understand his sovereignty but I know we get what we need according to his divine plan. The race for 2019; Not too young …

The Beauty and Curse of an Audience

An audience can make or break a person. From studying popular people and using social media as a case study, you will see that no matter what you are doing as an individual, you will always have supporters and critics.  When we then look at it critically, we see that there are advantages and disavantages of each of the sides. The advantages of always having supporters is that you build a community, the impact your are making on people because they are receptive to you and it just feels good to have supporters and that is also the disadvantage of …

Bound by words

Someone gave me his word to fulfil an obligation by a certain time. The time passed and he didn’t say a word. I then reached out to him and he apologised and gave me another date.

If for whatever reason you won’t be able to keep your word then let the person know what has changed. You will indeed be respected for it.  In the world we live in Integrity is key. If anyone cannot rely on the words that …

Seth Godin: Lessons I learnt from binge watching him speak

Where have you been all my life, Mr Seth?  I have heard the name and seen some thumbnails on Youtube with the yellow frames but never really been interested until yesterday. I clicked on one video and I literally binged watched everything Godin before I screamed “Enough”!  I love his perspective and outlook to life. Listening to him resonated with me so much, it is so refreshing to see people that stand out, go against the norm not because they just want to be rebel or be different but because of freedom and the ability to think things through. When …
