Maximising My Full Potential

Will I ever reach my full potential? I’m sure this is a question that a lot of us ponder on from time to time but avoid dwelling on. It can be very easy to get carried away when we are faced with life‘s challenges. The older we get, the more we realise everything isn’t as…

Sensual Playlists

Music really is medicine for the soul. There’s just something so serene about finding the perfect playlist, hitting shuffle and melting into vibes. I am a big music lover. A part of me doesn’t even trust people that claim to not love music- pardon my judgement. To be fair, I am not very picky about…

Self-Discipline: Battle of The Mind and The Soul

I know I said that I’d talk about my creative projects on this blog but I have been facing a creative block lately and I’m just going with the flow. The next post will hopefully be art related. Something that’s on my mind this morning though, is finding a balance for inner peace. Inner peace,…

The Beauty of Self Acceptance

I don’t know if you’ve heard the phrase “your vibe attracts your tribe”.

The Frustrations of Job-Hunting

Graduating from university is such an exciting milestone. You start to picture what life as an independent adult is going to be like and then you are tossed in into the hazy job market. The cycle I have noticed so far is this: Notice an opening for a position, edit your cv and cover letter…

Adulting… for Dummies

I found this piece I wrote in March 2017 when my journey of self-discovery started and decided to share it… When this year, started I felt optimistic, positive and ready to take on any obstacles.

What Jogging Three Times A Week Has Taught Me

Everyday, we hear about the benefits of exercise. But at what point exactly are you pushed to make it a lifestyle? Other than causal sit-ups when I feel fat and random squats to boost my self esteem, I have never been one to exercise a lot. Right from secondary school, I found any form of…
