I blog for Change…

As I attempt to orient the windy and often treacherous roads that encapsulate life, here are some of my thoughts on the successes, failures and ultimately the hope and positivity in which I strive for a better world. I also hope that I can use this blog as a platform to elevate the social justice issues that are somewhat forgotten in the modern discourse of staying silent on issues that challenge. Sx

14 Day Gratitude Challenge

14 Day Gratitude Challenge

The events of the beginning of this year have made me realise that I complain way too much, entertain negative and destructive thoughts all too often and get bogged down by meaningless & trivial pursuits and acquaintances on too many occasions.

No longer will I complain about the hurdles in life, no longer will I dwell on the failed relationships, no longer will I shed a tear over the multiple and varying levels of douchebags who have entered my life and no longer will I subscribe to their douchebaggery.

So today, I say no more! I pledge to be more positive and look brightly towards the future, love the wonderful people in my life and the dream of the adventures to come. In order to kick start this process I am going to embark upon the 14 day Gratitude Challenge where I will give thanks for all the amazing friends and family who grace my life with their presence everyday, the blessings which have been provided to me and the endless possibilities that my future may hold.

If you feel like offering some thoughts along the way, please do. I hope my little endeavour will serve as a small reminder to always be grateful for what you have, to believe in yourself and your existence in this world and to treasure your loved ones each and every day. 

Laugh uncontrollably, love unconditionally & believe unquestionably!
