Everyone is busy, understand that. But that’s why we make the time for others. The lazy excuse of im just so busy is pathetic; when you’re tired or exhausted cause you know, you’re just so busy, fucking get over it. Right now you are the youngest you will ever be, right fucking now. The people that matter, that you want to matter in your life, will make sure they are there. x
Personality, quality & morals impress me, not what you flash. Be fucking humble.
Being calm & considerate make a huge different to your daily routine. A crazy, unpredictable, creative life will spin you out of control if you let it. Don’t.
Sometimes you’re shoved into a situation you don’t want to be in, a situation you cant get out of but need to deal with, likely you’ll bitch & moan like it contributes to the solving the task at hand. It doesn’t. Shut the fuck up & deal with your cards you’ve been given. Turns out the pain & sweat is worth it. Work like a slave now, live like a king later. Fucking yes.
You can’t fucking fake chemistry. Theres a lot of things that you can fake like being happy, a smile plastered on your face, girls are pretty good at faking tears out of convenience, confidence, pretending to know what you’re doing (im really great at this one), but chemistry, oh fuck no. The people that you find that you’re on the same wavelength hold onto them tightly, I don’t find that they come around all too often.
No matter what, keep it fucking classy. The respect you have for yourself will project on how people should be respecting you. Raising standards never hurt anyone, maybe just got rid of the trash out of your life. Stay strong little one. x
At the moment the phrase be careful what you wish for, cause you just might get it is something that I have experienced very recently. One of my goals this year was to keep incredibly busy, well fuck I got my wish. I’ve learnt my lesson & next time I’ve realised you have to be really specific when you ask for something to come into your life.
Weeks are flying by this year & it scares the shit out of me. There is so much I want to do & experience. You really can’t let anything stop you from getting up & starting today. Start today on things that interest you, start today on things that you want to achieve because by the time you actually begin this process you realise how many obstacles and speed bumps slow you down. Get the fuck up & do it. Be fearless. Make mistakes. Fucking learn.
People disappoint me. Fin. I’ve learnt to expect nothing from anyone, how fucking sad. I’m a far happier person being independent from others. I’m my own fucking boss ♥
At times this city (of Joburg) can be poison to my blood, after all these years I still cannot grasp the people that live here or this city & need to get out, out, out! Maybe ive seen too many places to know better. A blessing & a curse? Perhaps.
You can’t be old & wise if you were never young & crazy. Awesome quote from Designer Andrew Gill (check out his stuff here) & ever so appropriate to making the most out of opportunities that come your way.
A year ago (I cant believe its been a year!) I left for an adventure to explore the wonderful state of California (this place will always make my heart melt) & eventually the city of London. Since then I have experience the best & worst days of my life. A person expects to gain so much positivity from traveling alone & taking time to figure out what they want and what they need to do in order to get it. Somehow the complete opposite happened & I came back home being miserable & utterly confused about life. However, I’ve managed to turn this around (& a very slow process it has been) & I am only finding myself again another 6 months later. Sad reality realising that some friends need to be kicked out of your life, leaving you lonely for many weekends, massive venue/social changes, more career focused & in general searching for ways to have a better quality of life for my future. You’ve got to learn to trust your struggle, trust your mistakes & have faith. I have this faith, not everyday, but pretending to helps as well. Progress, fucking progress. x
