Person in Process...




First of all, I need to give props to Alicia Keys for making these three words touch me in ways I never knew words could. She’s recently released her own autobiography called More Myself. I downloaded the audiobook and honestly it’s amazing. She is a force! Check it out! 

Its been a while since I last blogged but at least I left you with the abundance of positivity that Kizzy gave to us all. 
Leading up to and before that blog I don’t know why but I just entered this writers block. Yes its real guys. I had it. I just couldn’t think of anything to write. Well its not that I couldn't think of anything to write but i just couldn’t articulate anything that I was feeling. It’s been a really weird time I'm sure some of you have felt the same way too. How can something I we cant see cause so much hurt and pain. You know who I’m talking about. Covid-19 aka Coronavirus.   

Oh and guys can we just acknowledge how the weather has been flirting with us since we've all been in quarantine 😳 Don’t cheat on your health guys! Stay Home! 

It has shaken me. Like for real, this is something which is going to be taught in history lessons. 😳
You guys already know I work in the hospitality industry and let me tell you, the beginning of this nonsense was horrible to watch play out. The thought of people not having jobs just made me enter this realm of anxiety on another level. I absorbed peoples worries as well as my own. Then the announcement of furlough came and literally washed the worries away. 🙌🏾


So now thats sorted, I’ve been using this time to really self assess and meditate. Getting myself ready for this, now “new normal” for God knows how long. The saying ‘The devil makes work for Idle hands’ constantly playing over my head. It took a lot of adjusting to get into a routine and to keep my mind going. Thankfully I still work four days a week but the intensity is no where near the buzz I get from my normal days, especially without the complainers I always moan about. Lol. Wow do I miss them or something 🤦🏾‍♀️

During this self-reflecting time I’ve come to realise that I need to explore more and really jump for things. Why is it that now I am in semi-quarantine that I’m thinking about moving house, planning holidays and literally creating mood boards for my wedding? Why didn’t I do this before? Then I remembered. I’m Human. I let other things take precedence for whatever reason. Usually to please someone else. Sometimes we need to just stop and be pushed or tripped into to remembering what gravity feels like and what we need to proactively do. 
On the other hand, I thought it could possibly be that I’ve been so engrossed in work that these things, which I believed were important to me, such as the wedding and purchasing my home, were just put second and third. Its laughable that they were 1st and second on my goals list. 

Although 2020 now seems to be a write off, well I hope its just going to give us back some parts of normality at some point. I really think we should take the time to put everything into perspective and work on yourself. Take this time to take the step back and realign ourselves with who we are and who we want to be. We have been given, for the first time ever, TIME. I, just like you, am person in process just trying to work life out. 

Make you a priority! 

Finish the things on our personal to do lists.

Start learning that skill you had on your new year’s resolution goals.

 Keep physically and mentally fit. Its fun in the beginning and then your mind will play tricks on you. 
Go for a walk! Honestly this is so therapeutic, driving everywhere made me forget how calming walking was.

Organise your wardrobe. 
Get rid of those shoes and dresses you have never worn.

Spring clean that kitchen. Get Your Hinch on! A small tip, start on the cupboards and work your way up to the oven. Trust me the oven is a whole other task that will help burn those cals. 

Don’t be shy to have that glass of wine when you have achieved something that day. But please don’t start binge drinking. It really isn’t healthy. Believe it or not drinking daily is a form of addiction. Yep. I heard it on the news. Your health is your wealth and as fun as it may be now its not a habit you want to have or depend on for your sanity. Your mental health is important! 

So now with that being said, stay safe and stay positive. 

Read, Eat, Move. 

With love...

Woman to Woman with... Tita!!!

missltj_ Bonjour amies sœurs You may be wondering ‘why the french hun’, well its because my sis speaks french and its probably the only words I know from GCSE french and she hasn’t taught me much lol.  Now I am soooooo freaking excited about this. My bestie has come through for an exclusive on my blog. Eeeek! You will love reading what she has to say because she is wise beyond her years. As a sister, I respect the way she politely checks me when I attempt to come to her with my unreasonable foolishness (I say this begrudgingly *CoversFace*). Out of all of my interviewee recordings Tita's was the longest, she talkkkkkkks this will be a long read kids lol.  Lets get into it... So Tita tell us about you... So im Tita, I'm 26 and from Burundi, Africa. I was raised in both Burundi and Belgium and currently live in Belgium. Yeah Belgium and Burundi Stand UP! lol. I was raised by a single mom, a very loving hard working single mom and I am her only child. I also have

Fearless

The Mighty Women of Wakanda /ˈfɪəlɪs/ Adjective;  Showing a lack of fear. You may be wondering why I’ve chosen this picture so let me explain. These women scream fearless to me. They stood and faught for their King and didn’t really know the extent of the battle they were facing but did it anyway for the greater good. Kind of like me this week minus the physical aspect.  This is one word I truly battle with.  Growing up I was taught to fear nothing but God and then came a spider in the bath, sharks, swimming in deep water where I cant see my feet. These are my three of my biggest fears and public speaking being my fourth. So what did I have to face on Tuesday? PUBLIC SPEAKING!!!!  My public speaking fear stems from a summer club we used to attend as kids at my nan’s church. I was maybe 7/8 years old. We all had to stand and read a passage from what I think was the bible. I cant really remember. I just remember practicing loads and then when I g

Three Little Words...

Flowers bloom when they have everything they need... Don’t Force It! Three very important words. More important than the infamous ILY words. Ha! Yeah you thought this was those words didnt you. Nah. Not this blog ;) So why a blog about these words. Ive realised that good things truly come to those who wait. I’ve realised that as time goes by i’m not as patient as I use to be. Sometimes its good and at others its like sh!t Chess your impatience is going to get you into shit. Like for example; For the drivers out there, have you ever driven fast or cut someone up for no reason and then there you both are at the same traffic lights together. Lol. It’s just unnecessary you’ve not gained anything for that dumb decision. Yh this is the dumbness I do. Sometimes! Like chill.  In 2020 I need to have faith in Gods timing. Wow. Thinking about it actually makes me cringe. Sorry this is my anxiety kicking in. Why have I lost that patience. Oh wait I know. The fact that 30 is cree
