Just Me


11731589_866838766739627_3022584227301488117_oI’m a lot of things to a lot of people. I’m a Mother, Sister, Daughter, Friend. My life’s an open book, with some pages reserved for family and close friends. I enjoy writing, reading, travelling, and meeting new people; because I’m  always enthralled by their stories about life, love, God or what their beliefs are, and family. Their stories sustain my quest for knowledge, wisdom, and understanding of the human race.

I’ve learned from my mistakes, but I have no regrets. I  used to regret my past wishing that I could go back and change it. But realised that  it’s our past, that has brought us to the point we are now in our lives; and changing anything in the past, changes everything in our present. With all its ups and downs I wouldn’t give up anything that I have now. My faith gives me strength, my family keeps me grounded, my appetite for adventure keeps me going, and my heart makes me the woman that I am!

  11. Love your philosophy –> “Failure is not an option….“YOU MUST BE WILLING TO DO TODAY THE THINGS OTHERS DON’T DO, IN ORDER TO HAVE THE THINGS TOMORROW OTHERS WON’T HAVE.” I couldn’t agree more! Keep on … keeping on! 🙂 Looking forward to your posts. Too cool to be your 300th follower! Must be a (magical) sign. 🙂
