Is this how you want to be remembered?

I still get chills. Every time I hear it. “All I want to do is trade this life for something new” Each time I get taken back to that Thursday night at Virgin Active Randburg. We were riding. We were sweating. Some of us were cursing, using whatever we had to just to get to […]

The truth of you

I’m going to keep this to the point. You might disagree with me. You might tell me to go fly a kite. You might unfollow me. As long as I trigger that ugly AF ego of yours, I’ve achieved my aim. Here’s why: I see people hurting. Badly. I see people walking around miserable. Fat. Depressed. […]

But what about the people??

I’m a little stumped. I’m a little sad. I’m really pissed! Last night I was invited to a local event for entrepreneurs around business continuity after natural disasters. Okay, in all honesty I was a tad hesitant as I’d had dealings with the hosting organisation before and let’s just say that a banana leaves me more satisfied […]

What is being murdered by sympathy?

Have you ever experienced the fury of a momma bear when her cubs are being threatened? Probably not. Yet that is how I felt yesterday. I don’t allow too many people into my central heart space. That space is normally reserved for my boys, my family, my close friends, my clients. Probably because the passion […]

What is the worst thing that could happen?

I’m freaking out. I’m feeling old today. I’m feeling like I’m not where I’m supposed to be at this stage of the fight. I’m feeling like I’m playing too small. I’m feeling chicken. What’s this about? What’s the fear? The real fear? Not the one that I say I don’t have. Aaaaaaaah – I’m still afraid […]

It’s happening whether you face it or not.

There’s this old saying “Be careful what you wish for” Since understanding the true creative power of my words I’ve been really conscious of this. I now realise that we truly receive EVERYTHING we ask for – sometimes we’re just not very aware of what we’re asking for. So when I asked to see that which I’ve […]

Will it matter when you’re ninety years old?

It’s my birthday next week. It’s a strange one for me. I was journaling earlier this week and I had this knowing inside that this is my halfway mark. This is it. I have lived half my life. Made my choices. Received incredible learning. It’s been… an interesting time of contradictions. Looking back though I feel […]

They don’t have to like you to follow you.

Today I’m writing to the leaders I’m writing to those who were born to bring change. Those who are here to create. The artists, the healers, the achievers. Those who look around and see the systems is broken, stuck together with sticky tape whilst deep cracks show up again and again. I’m writing to those who […]

Committed – either you are or you’re not

My arms are shaking. My chest is aching. I look at the load. Do I take some off? Do I reduce the reps? What to do? Oh fuck off, you and I both know that’s not even an option LOL. Yet as I eye out the weights stacked I can’t help but think how easy […]
