So, this guy on Facebook reminds me that I have a blog, and that I have not blogged in such a long time! I was shocked! Not because he noticed, but because I had forgoted about one of the most important things I do with my time, writing!

Trust that I have good reasons for being so scarce, I was going through very hard times. When they say life has seasons, trust that they are right! It was my season of suffering, I withstood the storm and found myself in sunshine again. After almost a year of challenges, trials, falls, pain, and tears back and forth.

If you think being unemployed is hard, try being unemployed and surviving in Joburg. With no income, no home, no family, no friends (except one) and no food. I went through it all! One will ask me, but why did you not just pack your bags and go home? The answer is: It was not time yet.

I knew it, my family knew it, my boyfriend and best friend knew it. They wondered everyday why I kept holding on to this idea, and I told them that I am no ordinary human being, failure does not make up part of my composition, and they best believe!

Out of that time, the biggest lesson that I learnt was that, God answers all our prayers! No question about it! I found strength that I did not know I possessed, I became focused, composed and hungry to be the best that I can be. I found friends, in the most unlikely of people, I found additional love in people who loved me anyway. I found this Angel, whom I have known for ten years, who wasnt my biggest friend, but she opened up her life for me. She gave me a home, she loved me, she gave me food, she gave me an emotional refuge, she gave me herself. My friend!

I have been re-awakened!

Come on this journey with me, a new journey...


  1. In the end we get to see how strong we are, m glad you never let go or gave up even wen it hurt n tings ddnt make sense ...m happy God sent 1of his angel to look after you alwys cherish yo frend and goodluck with your journey forward. blessed.

  2. awesome journey, see this, you totally reminded me of what she was saying... and thank you for sharing

  3. Bcoz of u I nw knw why they say dynamite comes in small packages...u dynamite dear! Inspiration personified. 2nd lesson I learnt from ur xperience; a friend in need is a friend in deed. Treasure her, love & respect her she is a rare breed. Lesson 3; whn all seems lost...carry on. Nothin can stop 1 who is determined 2 persever even in da midst of darkness. May da universe continue blessing u & ur frend.
