Let it burn…..

I have succumb to the bug that is…….the burn out. I confess I am a workaholic, perfectionist and proudly idealistic in my thinking. I want to save the world everyday but the only thing is that I am one person. In the space of trying to prove my worth I have done the unspeakable and subconsciously taken on the role of someone else as well as myself and now I am burnt ooouuut…say what?!

The littlest things…..

Let me just be real for a minute. Not everything is great but I am thankful for the short times I have to breathe.

Being an assistant is never easy; you are just high demand all the time so blood pressure is just elevated a little bit. I still have days when I go home and say God I am greatful because without you I wouldn’t have landed this job. For anything I lack I know the Great I AM can give me strength.

I still remember the very first day that I started this job and how unbelievably focused I was. I just didn’t want to screw up; I am still like that today but it’s good to laugh now and again. My boss took a post-it note and wrote something I will never forget.


I always appreciate the little things people do for me no matter how small like when my sister gave me a hug because she saw I was stressed out; my boss wrote an encouraging note to help me relax; my mum made me soup when I am sick; my friend prayed for me when I was down; a stranger smiled at me when I had the most horrendous face on. Little things can be healing to the soul and bring tears to the heart. Things may be bad but just remember that there is a God that cares for you. I am not sure if I am doing this for you or to remind myself, but I hope you take it to heart.




Slow down baby…..

It has been a minute since I’ve been back here. Inspiration came and went and I had no time to write it all down. That’s how life has been since. Amidst all that we do sometimes we have so much going on that we forget we have other commitments. We forget to look after our friends, check on our family and even spend time with ourselves and before we know it, life has happened to all. Your friend lost a friend and you were not there to comfort them, a family member was in a situation that you could’ve helped out in and your face has gained a few lines with the addition of a few pounds. India.Arie said it…slow down baby you’re going too fast. Continue reading “Slow down baby…..”
