Change: How It Affects Our Decisions

All my academic life, I’ve been taught that the sole purpose of education was to discover that ONE career. That everything we did would eventually lead us onto a path that never strayed. This, I know now, is far from the truth. Since the birth of my 3 children, I have changed so much – […]

The Relevance of Change

Life often moves at such a fast pace, that we struggle to differentiate between what has changed and what has not. Sometimes we are so consumed with moving forward, we forget the importance of letting some things remain the same. Yesterday, I was watching a television series that I enjoyed when I was 16 years […]

The Anticipation of Change

Any day now, I will be embarking on a massive change to my life – the birth of my third daughter. Tomorrow, I would’ve reached the stage of pregnancy where I gave birth to my second daughter; and I am suddenly so overwhelmed with emotion. While my hubby worked a night shift and I cleaned […]

Change: For Better or For Worse?

I remember when I was younger; I used to recount all my experiences, note down all my emotions and express all my feelings through writing. By the time I was 19, I had accumulated at least 10 diaries, whose entries were reflective of all the things I was going through at the time. Why might […]

5 Years Ago Today

Today, I had the opportunity to reminisce on the past 5 years of my life. Tyler Ward, a talented musician on YouTube, asked his Facebook fans: “Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?” And I knew exactly what my answer would be. Five years ago, before I […]

New Beginnings

If I had told my former self 5 years ago that I would soon be married with 2 kids – I wouldn’t have believed it. In such a short space of time, my life has changed. I was always one of those people that wondered to themselves whether they would ever find The One, but as […]
