Day 2. #50DaysToFifty – Fifty… Is More Insistent.

When something is persistent, or insistent, it is demands  attention.  It sort of  puts it out there, and then it either happens, or we move on.  If it’s meant to be, it  lasts, and if not, then we  don’t begin   again… we move on.   We don’t  have time for all that.  Fifty  sort of teaches you…

Day 1 : Fifty. #50DaysToFifty

So I have been taking a series of photo shots  and microblogging as it   relates  to  ne  turning fifty,  this year.  Then I realized the photos   alone, were not  enough.  Yes, they speak, but there’s so much more to say. Some  of those  photos are pretty spectac… and   the others ..well, they are just me,  being me.  I…

The Day I visited Kuma, South Africa.

“Not that I am implying that I was in any personal want, for I have learned how to be [content (satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am. I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know also how to enjoy…

4 Reasons Not To Live with Regret.

So… I remember a time in my life when I was really  indecisive. I remember I was trying to please others so much, I forgot about myself.  In that process, I  made  a lot of decisions that  didn’t give much regard to my life, or  emotional safety. What I wanted out of life, was on the…

On Being Content.

  Philippians 4:11, 12  “Not that I am implying that I was in any personal want, for I have learned how to be [content (satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am.

pursue family.

How is this …on my blog about pursuing me? perhaps because it reflects family. and i really, really love families. I love how we create that cultural  magic. and just shine. our inner lights  reflecting our joy – and our  love for one another.   how we groove. how we move. how we  find healing…

Some of My Best Photos & Memories….

It’s so odd how… Some of my best pictures have permanent memories  and ‘records’ in my head… of me being taken out of my environment, into another realm of being and doing, transplanted to another part of the earth and helps me see a greater part and the ‘spiritual’  part  of who I am. I…

Caught Up in Silence.

Today I got kinda caught up. I had forgotten about my writing. That space where I seem to love creating. I was in the middle of a week that was going on six days of pure sickness. I hated it. And right before Christmas! (Forget about shopping!…Okay?) In fact I can’t even recall the last…

Nthabiseng is My Name.❤

Nthabiseng  is my African name,. It means: “Make Me Happy”. I consider it to either be a statement of how I should be, or  demand in that when people call me Nthabiseng, they make a demand of me, to bring happiness. For me, personally, its an infinite reminder that God wants me to be HAPPY….

How To Work For Free.

​Scripture: Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galations 6:2 When I  ponder upon the term: Working for free”… I think of my first internship at Howard University,  while working on my Masters at  John Hopkins Hospital. It was my  very first  challenging “crisis as a social…

Brokenness. So.. I don’t claim to be the best at interpreting why God has to allow brokenness to be a blessing for us….but I want to explain  why it was a blessing for ME. Brokenness sort of invades our lives like a sore, we didnt intend — to a injured part of our body we…
