A PERSONAL NOTE:WHAT IS  CURRENTLY GOING THROUGH MY MIND

Dear awesome women….

I’m glad that my blog is now exactly a year old and I must confess it has been a rather rough Road to get to where we are today. I remember hosting a seminar last year 2017 with the hopes of gathering women from different backgrounds to come and mingle with other women and learn from each other. The event did not really go as planned but I’m just really greatful to those who showed up.

I know that a lot of people might think that all of this is just a crazy idea but what my heart tells me is that there’s someone out there who needs to be in an environment where women share their stories and inspire one another. If only people knew how refreshing it is to attend such events we could probably pack a 5000 seater theatre full of awesome women who are confident in themselves and are seeking to divinely and genuinely work, help and empower one another.

Since 2018 started, I myself have been through quite a few steep hills but that didn’t stop me from trying hard to come back and revive my blog because I know that somewhere in the world there is a lovely woman who is inspired by everything I share on this blog.

As a matter of fact on this day I am so glad that I am writing this piece which is just a genuine expression of how I am currently feeling and I just thought I should share what’s going on in my mind just to get up close and personal with my lovely awesome readers.

Actually this year I would like to broaden my blog and the “awesome women initiative” from just being a creative space but also a home and platform that deals with issues of abuse and violence against women in our society. Things have been happening and I’ve come across a lot of tweets where young and older women have been missing, due to human trafficking and others have been abused and all of these things have triggered something in me that makes me want to take action and create a platform which will be a safe space for women to come through and share their experiences and even get help and protection.

Alright here’s to a new fresh year of blessings and more blog posts and hopefully some women empowerment seminars.

it’s time to take action and make sure we create a global community of awesome women who will Change the world and regain their power and have a voice.

A short letter of dedication:

A special shout out to an amazing awesome woman known as Masechaba Ndlovu who has done something amazing by becoming a Voice and a pillar to a young lady who was in an abusive relationship. Regardless of the negative responses and opinions on twitter and social meadia I believe you meant well and regard you
as a hero. Masechaba this should not be the end…. Continue fighting for women and God in heaven will reward you for your courage, strength, devotion and service.

Much love and blessings

HOW TO GRAB THE BULL BY THE HORNS

 It is not so  often that  opportunities present themselves to you but in life you need to train yourself to be ready for the right opportunities that are in line with your vision and life goals. Most of the time we miss what could have been our breakthrough simply because we are not prepared for a change and that’s what kills most dreams. As an awesome woman it is of vital importance to always know what you want so that when you get a chance to do something that will help you reach your goals, you are able to go fo it and not mess up.

Darling you need to bear in mind that if you are going to do it,  you need to do it well or not at all, the reason being that you do not want to end up using up all your energy on things that will not help you move foward in life. So we are not testing the waters but we are going in with full force with all that we have because we care about our dreams and goals.

Here are some tips that will help you take charge of your life and avoid missing life changing opportunites.


HOW TO GRAB THE BULL BY THE HORNS


1  ALWAYS BE PREPARED

The thing about life is that it is so unpredictable and opportunies often come when we least expect them. The best thing you can do is to always hone your craft and be ready for anything that comes.


2  PUT  PRIDE  ASIDE

Sometimes our breakthough comes in somewhat weird or mysterious ways that we had not imagined but when this happens  we need to look on the bright side of life. Never ever care about what people will think because wether they are thinking or not thinking, if they can’t help you then why should you care?


3 NEVER SAY NO TO AN OPPORTUNITY

By this I mean that, if you are presented with something that is sort of foreign to you and what you know, just say yes and then learn how to do it. It’s as simple as that.


4  BE OPEN MINDED

This is one of the most important aspects that any successful person will tell you about. Never ever be focused on one way of doing something because sometimes things don’t turn out the way they are supposed to, so If there is a mountain infront of you and you cannot climb it, why not try going around it?


5 GRAB IT AND DONT LET GO

Just jump into the unknown and believe that  you can do it. A positive mind leads to a positive life and this means that when you realise that everything in life happens for a reason then you will not worry about how to get about doing stuff  but you will eventually learn and master it.

I hope these tips will help you to stop being hesitant when opportunities come your way and please do not dispair but always be prepared.

BE STILL YOUNG WOMAN

Honey I know that right now you are probably thinking¸ why am I not where I want to be in life?. Well thing is, we are all travelling on different roads and your journey cannot be the same as another person’s journey because our lives were created to be different so that we may share our experiences with others and that is the beauty of life. Someone might have gotten everything at the same age as you are but what if God has something huge coming your way and the only way to reach to that level you have to go through stormy weather and stumble across huge rocks and cracked roads and climb mountains and hills. What I love about hardships is that they do not last forever and that is why most of the worlds successful people have a story to tell about how they got to where they are today.

I always emphasize on the fact that you need to have a higher power which you are accountable to, you know, something that you believe in, so that you can always ask that higher power to guide you on your journey. God says that ‘ I know the plans I have for you, Plans to prosper you and not to harm you’. If you can just believe in Gods perfect plan for your life then you won’t have to worry about your current situation and why you are going through those hardships. See God is the creator of the Universe so nothing is impossible for him and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts and so are his ways.

Oh darling please be still and understand that tough times never last but tough people do and this is just something that is moulding you to become that awesome woman you have always dreamt of becoming. Well in the meantime be that woman who goes after what she wants without contradicting and compromising her morals. Remember that success doesn’t happen overnight but through hardwork, commitment and always going the extra mile when doing the things you love.

You will get there, but for now baby girl, just hang in there.

BE UNSTOPPABLE

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

Yes we all go through some rough patches in life and it almost seems like it never ends, like it is bound to happen every now and then. What I have realised is that all those hardships occur when we least expect them  and besides who would expect to go through a downfall,?we all just want to be happy all the time…but infortunately life happens.

You might find yourself confused  and stressed because your life just throws you a curve ball  while you are busy trying to keep up and improve yourself by pursuing your goals and following your dreams. When all of these things happen, be strong. Don’t let life’s hardships take your joy away from you.
I think that most often,it is through pain where we actually find our strength and purpose in life.


unstoppable /ʌnˈstɒpəb(ə)l/
adjective
impossible to stop or prevent.

Lifes troubles will always be there, but are you going to let them weigh you down?..oh darling I want to encourage you to keep going,keep moving, you need to reach for the stars because you know the sky is’nt the limit right? when you are an awesome woman you push through  even on your worst day because success is what you are all about. Awesome women don’t quit. Be that type of a woman who fights and protects her dreams. Be obsessively passionate about yourself and about what you do and what you stand for. That’s the true definition of a woman who is unstoppable.
Remember that success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.

Be unstoppable babe,be that bossbabe, ladyboss and dance to the beat of your success. There is greatness in you and through persistance  and consistance, honey the whole world will witness the great work that God will reveal through you.

Say this with me ….’GOD LET THEM SEE YOU IN ME.’

SAY YES TO YOU

Ever considered giving yourself everything you want?. By this, I don’t mean things such as a brand new car and a huge mansion …right away..(well but if you ca afford , then why not?…Go get it sister girl). I am talking about  matters of the heart.Your inner cravings,such as a road trip by your self or your girlfriends.I’m talking about writing that book you’ve always wanted to write…or even writing that book you have always wanted to read. Most often than not, we tend to search for things that we desire , on the outside. 


Have you considered that maybe what you are looking for is already within you and just waiting for you to release it? If you want to read a book that talks about a powerhouse type of woman,…why don’t you write yourself and be inspired by your own work and also be an inspiration to other women.

What I have realised about us humans is that we are so creative,morethan we could ever imagine, but the thing is we are also very ignorant. We tend to shy away from things that actually make us happy. Saying Yes to you, is basically releasing all those happy feelings you get when you think about the goals you want to achieve.

I know that most of the time you just feel so reluctant when thinking of taking action yo pursue your goals. Let me tell you something sweet darling. Ever since I started blogging, I felt this abundant Joy in my heart, and that’s because I decided to say yes to me and finally do something that I have been holding back on for years, due to fear and self-doubt. This year I am saying Yes to me and following my heart. There are  still a handful of things that I want to pursue and I am saying yes. Only the Universe will tell me when it is time. But for now, I am just preparing myself.


Sweetheart, yes you awesome woman,take that first step, go out there and get some fresh air, take some time out and listen to your inner voice. Once you have heard the message clearly, SAY YES TO YOU


SAY THESE DECLARATIONS WITH ME

#1  I declare God’s marvelous favour upon my life as I pursue my goals.

#2 I am the head and not the tail,therefore I will make it to the end point.

#3 I will start following the path that God will guide me to for I know he will not mislead me

#4 I am a Queen and I reign supreme.

#5 Today I say Yes to me.

HOW TO OVERCOME FEAR

​One of our biggest enemies we always encounter on the journey to success is FEAR. This is something we cannot run away from, but we can overcome it.I have come to realise that the thing with fear is that it begins in your mind, just like anything else. When we feed it, we actually channel our minds to be fearful of things that might not even occur because we are sort of dillusional when we are overpowered by this stigma.

FACE THAT GOLIATH

Fear makes us to be doubtful, and as inevitable as it is? we need to fight it by gaining courage to pursue our goals with the fear. As a awesome woman with goals, you will always encouter fear wether you like it or not. But what are we so afraid of? Some might say, fear of the unknown, fear of success, the fear of being good enough and the fear of exposing your talents. Well ofcourse there are factors that encourage us to be fearful and those are things such as; self-doubt, seeking validation, lack of commitment, low self-esteem and unreadiness.

I have outlined a few basics steps which I believe will help you overcome fear.


HOW TO OVERCOME FEAR


#1BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
S
elf-belief is tge catalyst of success and freedom. Like they always say, if yiu don’t believe in yourself who will?. You need to convince yourself before you can convince anyone. Be free from self-doubt. Be liberal in your thinking.


#2 TAKE YOUR DREAMS SERIOUSLY

Whatever you do, never put yourself in a position where people doubt what you are doing simply because you downtalk yourself and you only talk about your dreams and goals jokingly.Now if you want to overcome fear, you must yake yourself seriously and that way you won’t be intimidated by anyone.


#3 BE CONFIDENT

I cannot stress enough on the importance of being confident. Confidence includes being positive and speaking about your dreams and goals with a bright smile. Be confident in your own skin, be proud of how far you have come. Nothing will tear down a woman with confidence, Not even fear.

#4 KNOW WHAT YOU ARE ALL ABOUT
Knowing what you are all about will definately lead you to being proud of your brand and wgat you stand for. When you know what you stand for, you will not be afraid of rejection because yiu know that the universe will ultimately place you at your perfect position, right where you belong.


#5BE SURE OF YOUR STORY

When you are sure of your story, there won’t be any need for you to be afraid of pursuing your goals. Be sure that woman who is sure that she will be successful. Be sure that you are sure that you are sure. Yes….be that sure.

Many thanks, Stay awesome.
