They say that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with everything they have. But darling, you have every right to pick and choose what kind of love you settle for. – S Diaries


You can be a good person with a kind heart and still say no. S Diaries


The first time someone gives up on you, decides you are just not worth the trouble, you blame the human in you. You start to believe fears and vulnerabilities are meant to be swept under rugs, and weaknesses should stay hidden.

And don’t you dare be honest, because clearly it makes you “talk too much”. You start to build the wall higher than it has ever been because then maybe, just maybe it won’t happen again.

Stop. Demolish this idea. Throw it to the wolves.

Imperfections make you real, and real is beautiful. – Sahar MJ

Stop waiting for it to make sense,

Stop using that as an excuse to leave the door open.

It’s not closure that you are seeking;

It’s the hope that despite what’s gone wrong, everything can go back to normal. – S Diaries


 It’s OK to fight for someone who loves you.

It’s not OK to fight for someone to love you.

You are what you say you are

“You become what you think about all day long” – Ralph Waldo Emerson


I just had a major realisation, almost four months later from moving to Netherlands. As soon as I landed, I thought of myself as a home body, a mom looking after children. A mom who gets stressed and has to “deal” with her children all day long. A person who lives and works at home and doesn’t need to impress anybody.

What happened? I became exactly that. If I look at myself now, I don’t look like a young 25 year old traveller. I look like a home body who eats too much and is sad because she has to “deal” with her children instead of experience them!


I vow today that I will change my mind about myself. I already have some fantastic affirmations:








I will stick to this because this is what I will become.

“When you want something, all the universe conspires to achieve it.” – Paulo Coelho




What if?

What if this all works out exactly how I want it to, or better?
What if the reason things are the way they are is because this is what needs to happen for me to achieve my goals?
What if this is all a misunderstanding and everything is actually completely ok?
What if I go home and forget all about this, and it solves itself?
What if that attractive person over there is fantasizing about me right now?
What if I come by that money I need in the most unexpected way?
What if i had all the money in the world? What would you do?

I would buy myself a backpackers in Australia, in Byron Bay. I’d by a house in Camps Bay and some other awesome place to rent out, definitely a place in Fish Hoek too.

I’d have the best braai’s, kite-boarding instructors, surf instructors etc living on the premises. I’d have amazing food available for my guests. I’d have my black lab with my ALWAYS.
