Life’s Seesaw

Life’s Seesaw

Posted on Location: 5 min read 1188 views

Life’s seesaw propels us off the ground and allows us to oversee the playground of life; in the blink of an eye, we are down on the ground, and the next, we are up enjoying the high. It is important to know that the highs and lows of life are not always easy to adjust between; if you are anything like me, you know, a human being, then at least one point in your life you have secretly wished that you could be hidden and protected from the world by an invisible cloak like Harry Potter, but it just doesn’t work like that in the real world.

Is It Really Ok Not To Be Ok?

Is It Really Ok Not To Be Ok?

Ok, so how many times do we hear people say “it is ok not to be ok”—frequently, right? The thing is, many people will religiously recite this very encouraging statement, and then judge you for doing so. I know right, hypocritical.

Unfortunately, there will always be people who will not understand and of course, those that will judge you. You have no power over them so try not to take it on. Your life is yours.

COVID-19: The Struggle, Emotions And Overall Uncertainty Of How To Feel.

Posted on Location: 9 min read 1241 views

It was the best of times and the worst of times. Are we not currently living in these times? COVID-19 has me feeling the struggle, emotions and to be honest, an overall uncertainty of how to feel. IS it the best of times? Well, think about it. We live in the Digital Age—technology has granted us access to just about everything available on the WWW. Mobile phones have connected us in ways many of us never thought of, and this only increases as more apps are created. Granted, a large portion of the information that can be found on Aunt Google, Youtube Academy and other sources such as social media will not be accurate. In fact, during this pandemic, personally, I have seen countless altered “news” that has been shared and used to cause further panic. However, despite this, if you know what you are looking for coupled with common sense, you can find a wealth of information (in my opinion).

8 Things 2019 Taught Me About Life, People And Myself.

And just that, 2019 is drawing to a close, and it’s time to pack away the fine china used for Christmas for reuse next year. Everyone will be shifting their focus from gifting to others to buying for themselves as the stores announce their sales, and of course, the excitement that the New Year brings. As we steadily approach 2020, our timelines will be filled with posts emphasising how 2019 was filled with moments that made 2019 everyone’s best year thus far.  Meanwhile, some of us are flicking through our photo gallery and saved Snapchat memories trying to find an ‘Insta/Facebook-worthy’ post with a creative caption solidifying how great 2019 was for us. However, it doesn’t exist, or we feel like it doesn’t add up to everyone else’s posts.

Surviving The First Year Of Marriage: 7 Tips To Survive

Surviving The First Year Of Marriage: 7 Tips To Survive

Posted on 7 min read 1849 views

“We have to recognise that there cannot be relationships unless there is commitment, unless there is loyalty, unless there is love, patience, persistence.”
Cornel West

Surving the first year of marriage has been a journey. Today, 8th of November 2019, I celebrate my first year of marriage!! #WeMadeIt. “If you can make it through your first year of marriage, you two can get through anything.” These were the words that were said to me from a married friend of mine near the time of our wedding last year. At the time, I didn’t understand why the first year of marriage would be the hardest. I mean, we have been living together for our entire relationship, what difference would marriage make to our relationship?

Hit The Reset The Button

Hit The Reset The Button

Posted on 5 min read 788 views

“All through my life, I have been tested. My will has been tested, my courage has been tested, my strength has been tested. Now my patience and endurance are being tested.”
Muhammad Ali

Although life has no option to actually restart the day, week, month or year over like we can to our favourite song or movie, we still have the power to hit the reset button. Starting over fresh doesn’t confirm that you failed, it merely shows that you have reached a point of realisation where you realised that it is time to start over fresh.

Situationships -vs- Relationships

Situationships -vs- Relationships

Posted on 4 min read 977 views

A placement holder until they find the “one”. A placebo, disguising itself as the real thing—situationship.

All the signs are there, staring you in the face; you know what you are in. Yearning and wanting more, knowing in your heart that they cannot give you what you want and need, yet still, you stay.

 “Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it can. And just when you think it can’t get any better, it can.” 

― Nicholas Sparks

There are lessons to be learned and knowledge to be gained in everything we encounter.

In just about every episode of The Cleveland Show, Cleveland has some battle to overcome; something is always going wrong. No matter what the situation is, he remains optimistic and doesn’t treat it as if it is life or death.
