Mindful Monday: Finding Inspiration

What is inspiration? The Merriam-Webster dictionary has a few definitions by my favourite is this one: a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation. After reading this, I then asked myself who seeks inspiration and for what reason? Google couldn’t answer this. So… Continue reading Mindful Monday: Finding Inspiration

Not So Great Expectations

When you’re born, certain things are expected from you as you enter the world. Such as making people happy and bringing joy to their lives. Even to the point of saving a relationship to some. As you grow, society expects that you’ll do well in school ( if you go the traditional route), be a… Continue reading Not So Great Expectations

Mindful Monday: Being mindful of your thoughts

This is a new segment I’m hoping will become a regular feature and continue for a long time to come. I’ve come to find that the manner in which you start your day, pretty much determines how your day will go. For instance, when you get that hug from your beloved or a call/text from… Continue reading Mindful Monday: Being mindful of your thoughts

Sleep is not my friend 

Yes, yes, yes. They (the experts) say you need at least 6-8hours of sleep. But I’ve been surviving with about 5 every 24hours or so. I’m still sane (well…kinda). I just don’t fall asleep easily. And when I eventually do, staying asleep is a mission to me. First I gotta find the perfect position. Which… Continue reading Sleep is not my friend 

The Time on my hands

As an Emergency Medical Personnel , time is everything. From the moment an incident occurs to when they call for assistance. From when dispatch gives you the call to how you respond to the scene. A sense of urgency is needed. We record from when you arrive on scene to when you perform a certain… Continue reading The Time on my hands

This thing called Fear

Nothing paralyses the human soul/spirit as this thing called fear. Where does it come from? How does one recognize it? Most importantly, how does one overcome it? This is not specific to certain people or certain careers. I think we’ve all experienced some level of it at some point in our lives. Sometimes even more… Continue reading This thing called Fear

A Family Torn Apart, Will Always Be Together 

So I got back from home (White City) earlier and I’m exhausted. The hot, dry weather isn’t helping either. Fighting my eyes as I’m typing this cause they wanna close on their own, without permission! How rude! Anyway, so the situation back home isn’t one of the best. Lost my aunt last week Wednesday… so… Continue reading A Family Torn Apart, Will Always Be Together 

…Memory/storage full

So my phone has limited storage space (came with 16G), no port for a memory card for extra storage. I have to but storage from the cloud and pay monthly, depending on how much more storage I need. It’s not a lot really. The cheapest being R14.00 p/m for 50G (still a lot!). I’m told… Continue reading …Memory/storage full

Alone.. but not lonely 

As I grow older, like today (Birthday) I’ve come to a realization that my friends have grown fewer (excuse the pun) by the moment. I no longer need the validation of a hundred likes or lots of people at a dinner party. My validation comes with the genuine response to a family crisis or the… Continue reading Alone.. but not lonely 

And so the story goes..

14/09/2017 Thursday  As much as we work in the Emergency Medical field and deal with death almost everyday, we don’t get accustomed to it. Especially when it comes to someone close to you, as in friend or family.  It gets awkward when you have to tell a family member of that patient that they’re no… Continue reading And so the story goes..
