Gosh | Life

This morning I woke up and thought: "What mood should I be in today?" It's pretty simple, we get to choose our attitude and outlook for the day. I chose to be happy and positive... This is not always the case though, to be honest. But for the most part, I am going to be making a concerted effort to choose a positive attitude and outlook.

So, besides going through another break up, and actually only being single for the first time in what? 4 or 5 years, so I am on a journey of self discovery! There are so many things to be grateful for, and really, we don't actually have THAT much time, so why waste it dwelling on the past and on negativity.

Other than that, I have some exciting things in the pipeline, my underwear brand should officially hit retailers in the next few months! So keep your eyes open, but you will be the first to know :0) The first range is going to be a limited range, so once it hits the stores, you better get cracking! Just saying ;) And as always, for those that do support, thank you! It is always appreciated!

I also recently landed a small gig on a new local television talk show called The Afternoon Express, its nothing too big, and am really just supporting cast for now, but the opportunity is great, and I am looking forward to seeing where that goes.

Work has also been amazing! I moved over to Platinumseed as senior digital strategist, and I am loving every moment of it! I went from feeling like I needed to change careers at my previous company, to knowing that this is what I love doing at this company! It just shows you how much a company has an effect on your personal life.

With all that said, I am looking forward to what the future holds! Life is great and is going to be great! We always have to deal with challenges and process things in order to learn from these challenges, but just always know that all it does is prep us for greater things in life!

Cropped Up Images

A different take on some of the images I already have!

Let me know what you think ;)

Ending Feb On A High Note | Nivea

Aaaah, and the weekend has finally arrived! Today also marks my last day at the company that I work for in Cape Town.

I start my new journey at a smaller ad agency as a digital strategist on Tuesday, and I have to admit that as sad as it is saying good bye to the great people I have worked with here, I am looking forward to the new challenge and ventures that await me.

Anyhow, I am ending off February on a high note and will be on set shooting for Nivea tomorrow in Cape Town. The season has been great to me this year in Cape Town, and if it is anything to go by, then the rest of the year is just going to be amazing! So looking very forward to the opportunities that may come.

Wishing you all the best for the weekend!

The Kid Inside You | The Goodness

I love surrounding myself with good people, who have similar values to me and similar outlooks on life, but I also enjoy surrounding myself with people who are different, you learn so much.

I have no one specific type of friend, and generally when I invite a group of people out it turns out to be a mix match of all different types of characters, love it!

I think having to move from one city to the next and change schools every year while growing up has also had an effect on how I make friends. Trust is one issue that I deal with, I would like to be able to trust everyone easily, but find it hard, I see it as a downfall, but at the same time as a good thing. I also never just have one group of friends, which is enjoyable and enriching, being able to get along with everyone from all different walks of life.

This morning after gym I took a walk on the promenade in Cape Town, and I have to admit it was probably one of the most relaxed mornings that I have had this year. I even took the time out to hit the swings. My mate Luke took the stroll with me and innitially I said to him, geez! I am too old for swings! His response, that is exactly the problem, your never too old for swings! We tend to loose touch of the kid inside us, our lives become so demanding that we forget to just be us and have fun.

Anyway, I hit the swings and even stood up and EVEN did that thing where you twist the swing and then spin around till it unwinds. For a moment my mind was clear, I wasn't worrying of all the things I needed to get to or what the next week holds for me, and quite honestly, it was a relief.

Take some time out to get in touch with that inner kid again, trust me! It helps!
