Drink tea, eat good food and climb a tree once in a while. And always brush your teeth twice a day, every day. And you'll never go wrong. ✞

To have streams of living water flow from deep within us.
Are we allowing God to bring us out of captivity twice the people we were before? Or are we settling for this shallow sense of spirituality that’s all about us and what God can do for us? Are we growing into the truest sense of purpose? That is to glorify and honor God with our entire being, not to sink back into comfort. To live out the divine not the mediocre. Are we just settling for a “I went to church on Sunday” kind of Christianity or are we striving for the “I am the church every single second of every single day and everything I do is to strive to be more like Jesus in a world that wants to be more like themselves” kind of living?
I must say these are some tough questions I’m asking myself. When I reflect over this week, this month, this year, I can definitely say that there’s a long, yet beautiful road ahead of me. It’s not easy, but God never promised easy. He promises grace, mercy and eternal Love beyond our comprehension. He promises Himself. ~ “But I will never stop loving him nor fail to keep my promise to him. No, I will not break my covenant; I will not take back a single word I said.”
Psalms 89:33-34 ~
“I’ve got a plan for you. It’s gonna be great. It’s gonna be wild. It’s gonna be full of Me.” Love fulfills the Law. ~ Romans 13:10.

This beautiful view can be found from the 9th floor of @africanpenthouses, a beautiful getaway spot in the Jozi CBD for those who either want to be a tourist in their own city or those tourists who dare to go #beyondsafaris. I was fortunate enough to be invited to the #mysideofjozi event hosted by the game-changers in African tourism, @tstmkrsafrica. Tastemakers Africa is an experience platform that aims to change the narrative of the African story by going beyond the average tourist experiences, and inviting people into the real African culture. Yes, certain spots like the apartheid museum and #vilakazistreet are parts of our history that should be known but they don’t make up the whole story. We have so much more to offer than the standard story media like to dish out to the international public.
We are rich in diversity, art, creativity and entrepreneurship. Our story goes beyond the minuscule image that is so often portrayed. #LoveFromAJoziGirl at Commissioner Street

"Luckily we serve a God who has everything under control and He LOVES US! He knows us better than we know ourselves and that means He knows what's best for us.
Take time to listen to Him and hear where He wants you to go. He will lead you and guide you and provide along the way. Be open. Be vulnerable. Be available." - @amy_alz’s blog giving me life today.
Hope you guys are having an inspiring week :) at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

“Don’t mimic the confident people. Find out what makes them confident instead. Do not copy those you admire or envy. Learn about what grounds them. If you get to the root of it and find your own confidence & self-worth, it all falls into place. Don’t ignore your insecurities, they have something to teach you. Once you learn the lesson they have to teach, they fade away. It has never been about being the best. It’s about being yourself.” - so grateful for having such a wise brother, @awinhayden.
Blessed to have such strong family and friends around me that can lift me up when I’m face down on the ground in my own struggles with depression, insecurity and anxiety. Thank you for the phone call last night, ma. @leemerrickholmes ❤️ The journey of healing is one that has no shortcuts, something I’m only just learning.
Thank you, @kiran_ru, for your patience and strength❤️ Thank you, my Leela (@leela.and.stick), for always being the big sister I can always look up to. ❤️ Thank you, @dan.lun, for always pushing me out of my own comfort zone and getting me to exercise. It’s such a saving grace. ❤️
~ 26 ~ “When I was ashamed, You called me beautiful.” One thing I am learning and reflecting on today, and the year to come, is the power of self-love. Not only to set yourself free, but to set those around you, whom you love, free. And I’m finally believing in this notion outside of its cliched meaning. I think the hardest and most exhausting thing in the world is loving someone who has no love for themselves. It is a constant battle to make them feel loved and worthy, and it gets to a point where it almost feels like you’re trying to save them from themselves. Sarah Kay puts it so beautifully, “There will be days like these, where you will lift your arms out to fly, but the very ones you’re trying to save are the ones standing on your cape.” I’m trying to find balance between loving someone and trying to save them. The truth is we can’t save anyone, only Jesus can. Being a Christian has made me realize that we can love people hard and through all their difficulties, but we can’t save them. They need to be the ones to make that move. All we can do is stand ready to hold their hands when they are willing to make those steps toward self-love and healing. I want to spend the next year practicing loving myself so it’s easy for the ones I love to love me. I want to press into God’s unconditional adoration for me so I can step out into His quiet confidence. I want to teach the ones I love that they can do the same, that they are worthy to do the same, that I can’t save them, but that first step will be the most healing thing they’ll ever do for themselves and me. Thank you @arvettee for this picture 💕
