What a wonderfully adventurous life we lead. Things may go right, wrong, up, down, squiggly and mushy but it is always moving. Life is the outline of a drawing and the hobbies we take up, is how we colour it in.
There is a saying in Afrikaans, “Wat die hart van vol is, loop die mond van oor.” Translated it means, whatever your heart is full of, will spill out of your mouth. So you speak about what you are passionate about.
I am passionate about several activities and topics, I am no expert mind, but I am having such an amazing journey learning and attempting to master them. I want to share my experiences and thoughts. What I lack in elocution, I will make up for in enthusiasm.
Health and Nutrition – Master Chef Star
They say “we are what we eat”. There is so much advice and Do’s and Don’ts out there on nutrition. I would like to sift through all of this information in an attempt to have a healthy wholesome body. I will try recipes, explore new ingredients and try to navigate the daunting task of ‘cooking from scratch’.
Running and Exercise – Serious Mileage
Being blessed with a healthy body, I want to utilise it to its maximum while I can. Running and other forms of exercise are my way of doing this. I started a journey two years ago, then I could only manage a 4km run and now I am attempting to run the Comrades marathon. I would like to share that journey and the lessons I have learnt along the way with you.
Photography – Flash Bulb
I cannot draw, I see beautiful pictures all around me and I cannot draw it. My obvious solution; photograph it. I would love to share some of my favourite photos with you. God is the artist and I am the witness.
DIY projects and Creative Tasks – Handy Mandy
I love to decorate and create. Giving old furniture new life, creating new things or simply decorating. I will do step by step projects so we can share the experience together, the successes and the failures.
Dance, Worship and all things positive – Soul Song
Dance is the physical substance of the spirit of the music. The means for some souls to communicate in a language their intellect could never comprehend. I have always had an intense love of dance, I have not had much formal training but the body doesn’t care. I, however, did not know how fulfilled it could make you feel till I started dancing for the Lord.
There is always a silver lining, something to be thankful for or a reason to praise the Lord.
