ONLINE HONESTY | INTERESTING PEOPLE YOU FIND ONLINE

I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I come across someone online who says something rather odd, ignorant, or extremely offensive I almost immediately giggle out of shock (my defense-slash-coping mechanism, I guess – hysterical laughter) then I think to myself : “Some people shouldn’t be allowed online, and shouldn’t be allowed to access the internet or wifi all together for the good of mankind. It’s not like I’m being trying to be rude, or judging the crazies out there – but I do question where has everyones common… Read More

KILLING THE LIE | YOU ARE NOT WORTHY

What is it that stops us from loving, accepting, and celebrating who we are? What stops us from dreaming and believing for better circumstances and situations?

Hence, the series: “Killing the lie” will feature every Monday –… Read More

The lies we believe as women

The lies we tell ourselves are often in secret, sometimes with or without our knowledge. The lies that we believe in secret often damage our self esteem, and cause us to assume, doubt and to fear. They start off as little lies, but soon root itself deep into our hearts, so much so, that it can completely consume and control us, and cause us to behave in an unhealthy manner. Over the years I have had to face certain lies that became internalized insecurities, which in turn stopped me from living… Read More
