Let It Go

I am not sure how long this poem has been in my life for or where I read it for the first time, but every time I read it is just when I need to. It's just when something is happening in my life...when I am feeling unsure about the people in my life or the relationships and space I share with them.It just pops up in my head! And when I read it, I know exactly what I need to do. I used to hold on to people in the fear of losing them. I used to do all I could with all my might just to have them in my life, but as I get older, I realise that when people want to be in your life, you don't have to fight to keep them there....they will just be there...because they want to be. Now I belive in the art of letting go!
I recently got out of a relationship because he simply fell in love with someone else, I was mad as hell, my heart was shattered, but because I loved him so much... I let him go.. I let him be.. I let him love her.. I let them be together...I let it go...It was not the easiet thing to do but it was very important that I do it for myself because I love myself that much...It was important that I do it for my own sanity... Letting go is one of the hardest lessons in life.It's easy to form an attachment to people and things. When you've formed an attachment to people and things, it can be a very painful experience and feeling when you realise that it's time to let go. Even the mere thought of not having that person or thing in your life just squeezes your heart in pain. But as hard as it is, it has to be done!
The poem that taught me about the art of letting go is by T.D Jakes. It's called Let It Go.


There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this!
When people can walk away from you: let them walk.
I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you.
I mean hang up the phone.

When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.

The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19]

People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay.

Let them go.

And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person, it just means that their part in the story is over and you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead. You've got to know when it's dead.

You've got to know when it's over.
Let me tell you something. I've got the gift of good-bye.
It's the tenth spiritual gift - I believe in good-bye.
It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me.
And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it.

Stop begging people to stay.

Let them go!!

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to......


If you are holding on to past hurts and pains .....


If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth.....


If someone has angered you ........


If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge......


If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction.....


If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents


If you have a bad attitude.......


If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better......


If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him......


If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship.......


If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves.....


If you're feeling depressed and stressed .........


If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it," then you need to......


Let the past be the past. Forget the former things. GOD is doing a new thing!


Get Right or Get Left .. think about it, and then.

Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are

It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives. Author - Unkown

Busy bee

Ok.. so it's been about 3 months since I've posted something on this blog! It's just so hard to keep up! There's always something distracting me. If it's not work (at the office), it's shoots in studio or it's radio! And if I'm not doing any one of these, I use the time to relax, be with the family, do some catching up with friends, read a book (currently reading The Secret - The Power), or sleep..hahaha

Sounds like I'm making excuses huh?
Ok, so I'm making a commitment now to blog once a week.
On Sunday mornings.
Yes, sounds like a plan!

I have so much that I want to share, but time is just not on my side.
I'll make time!

Angels Walking for Cancer

I'm one of the Angels Walking for Cancer on Sunday the 29th of August 2010. Together with media personalities, you can be an angel too and support this great cause. :-)

I'm Proud Of Me


Brand new day and it's freezing like.. like... like... something really cold..!!
Wishing for warmer days... hence the picture .

Ok,so I don't update as much as I'd like to and that's not cool. I feel like I'm failing at this.

This is my second post and I'm very excited as I write this.

Not because I won the lotto ,although I wish I had, the roll-over was a massive 75 million rands.. damn!
But I'm excited because I just am.. no I'm lying!

I'm excited because I bought a brand new car!! YES!!!
A little gift to myself because.... well...honestly...? I deserve it!

I've always dreamt of owning one and now that I have it, it really feels good.
I feel like I have worked towards something great!
I'm so proud of me! I did it by myself, all alone, with no one's help whatsoever!
Independence is so fulfilling.

My first car, like any other first car was a lil problematic but I didn't sell it!
I gave it to my sister... who was so happy to take it.(talk about loving freebies, lol)
It's still my baby though! My Champagne! (That's what I call it).

This new car will be a huge responsibility though, but I feel like it's purpose in my life is to push me to work even harder (in order to keep it.. he he he) and get more out of life...!!

Planning on moving outta home as well, baby steps...

I am ready for the take-over!!
I'm so proud of the woman I am becoming.

My new interest...blogging!

So a lot of people have been going on about this thing called blogging, so I thought hey.. it wouldn't hurt to try it out. I've always loved writing and what a great platform this is for me to just write what I like! It's my space, my expressions, my truths, my experiences, my life!

I'm still getting the hang of it, so far not too bad! Actually, not bad at all. No, it's actually great! I love blogging..
I do sometimes tend to get carried away though; with a little overshare here and there, but what the heck.. how harmful can it be...? lol

It's June 24,a Thursday night, the time is 21:47.
My first post on my blog!
This is so exciting....

Walk with me on my journey of growth, discovery, endless possibilities, heartbreaks, love,disappointments,good times and whatever else I'm yet to go through!
