At the brink of A New Year, everyone expects the Incoming Year to bring in a New Beginning. When the Clock strikes at midnight, will everything indeed become New?

Most companies run an annual appraisal for their staff where their work output is reviewed. The most anticipated outcome of appraisals is an upward review of the salary package and promotion and In fact some people already make plans for the expected increase. I had my appraisals at the office recently and it was quite an experience. Appraisals are ‘Office Judgement day’, in split seconds your mind runs through your performance over the year, the […]
SUNDAY PLANNING + PREP Planning your week on Sunday can help make sure that you’re making the most of your time. When you plan for your week, you realise that, not only can you schedule items from your to-do list around important appointments and events, but you can make sure the most important things get done and that your priorities get done. Sunday is the day that works best for me. I usually sit down […]
“No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.” – Unknown It’s a new month already! And in fact this new month is already rolling by. If the fact that we’re in February doesn’t wake you up, what will?
It’s great to set goals as adults. It gives us a sense of purpose, and once we achieve them, a feeling of exhilarating accomplishment.

If you have never considered going through with this, it may be time to do that for your kids. They should be encouraged to set […]

It’s Monday again! Another week is here. Today, I recorded a video just to pour out my heart to you. In this video, I help you to dig a bit deeper into what is holding you back from fulfilling your dreams – your Limiting Beliefs. “There was a very cautious man Who never laughed or played He never risked, he never tried, He never sang or prayed. And when he on day passed away, […]
You often hear people talk about how to achieve work-life balance. In fact, people pay to attend seminars, workshops and courses on how to achieve this seemingly elusive work-life balance. What exactly is work-life balance? I see it as an attempt to give an equal measure of weight to both your life and your work. I have a slight problem with that definition though. What is my work, if not a part of my life? […]

“Step Out of Your Comfort zone”, everyone seems to be saying to you. We often think it’s in the big things – not at all. Stepping out of your comfort zone is doing anything that makes you uncomfortable, even in the slightest way. Your comfort zone is the place where you can do things without thinking about it! It’s normal for you, it’s routine and you’re just very comfortable. Your anxiety level is steady, and […]
It’s a brand new week! A New week is always another opportunity for new things. The greatest tragedy in life is to put in effort in the things that do not really matter.

Should my role as a woman only be limited to these portions of Scripture. By the way, these only address married women. So, what should a single woman do? Nothing? No wonder our society makes us feel like your life as a single […]

From reading a book, the bible, listening to someone speak, watching a movie, speaking with people, looking through a Blog…anywhere. And when I write down, it could be in any form. It could be the good old pen and paper. It could be on my phone writing app and better still, my text-on-image app. It […]
