Why I blog...
Blogging has become so commonplace in this day and age that it’s almost impossible to find someone who isn’t doing it so, what makes this blog unique?
I am fiercely proud of every blog post that I write and that is because I wholeheartedly invest in each post. I feel deeply and passionately about each topic that I address and hope that you can sense that as you read these posts. Now, proud of every post though I am, there are still some posts that I have written that really stand out to me because of the background story that they have.
Some posts were written during periods of great suffering and sorrow and grief.
Some posts were born from a period of transition in my life that I go back and reflect on.
Other posts were born out of sincere and deep moments of connections with loved ones which left me feeling energised, motivated and inspired.
And then there are other posts that seem to be “epiphanies” that just pop into my brain while I’m making dinner or folding laundry and as I begin fleshing my thoughts, it feels like the blog post takes on a life of its own. Those are the best kind of posts to write because it feels like the thoughts and words just flow and it’s pure magic! And it’s these moments of pure magic that I want to share with you in this section!
Below this paragraph you will find a slideshow of my top five “magical moments” that I have called “Must Reads.” It was hard to pick just five blogs to showcase but I thought to myself that if I had just one chance to show you either something that I wanted you to know about me or share with you something that is really close to my heart, what would that be? Asking these questions is what guided me in picking my “must reads.”
Now, let me say that there are more blog posts below the “must reads” and that you can find my latest post in the sidebar on the right, but the blog posts in this section are really some of the things that are near and dear to me that I would love to share with you. I hope that as you read my thoughts, you will sometimes catch yourself smiling and laughing at what I have to say; that you will sometimes be challenged to consider a viewpoint that is perhaps vastly different to your own and that you will occasionally learn a thing or two.
P.S. Don’t forget to comment with your thoughts at the end of each post because I would love to hear from you!

Let's create something beautiful together!
Collaborations interest me. I think part of the reason they rouse my attention is because I’m pretty interested and open to the idea of collaborating with people from all over because sometimes – if not most times – more can be achieved when working together with people as a part of a team as opposed to “flying solo.”
The other part is because I think that collaborations can be a fun, interesting, enriching and wonderful learning experience for all involved.
So, if you reckon that we could work well together on one of your upcoming projects and the idea of teamwork appeals to you, then I want to hear from you!
