I know I’ve been a bit scarce lately, but for good reason. I’m making some big changes in my life, which will allow me to focus on doing what I love. I will be plunging into the freelance world, blogging, writing and travelling more, doing some social media stuff. Basically I will just be doing what I do best – sharing the love!
This has been a big and scary step for me. Resigning from my safe and stable government job was not easy, but I am super excited to pursue my passion. Starting this blog has unleashed my creativity and helped me decide on what I need to focus on in my life – travel, Africa, and sharing the Mzansi love. I know its not going to be easy, but it’s sure to be fun!
Do what you love, and do it often
The Holstee Manifesto has been pasted to my wall for some time now. It has inspired me to do what I love, create and find my passion. The call to action really resonated with me. This is your life, do what you love, do it often…
I feel incredibly blessed by the support I’ve got from friends and family but also amazed by the support of people I interact with on social media, many of whom I don’t even know IRL. I’m so grateful to be surrounded by so many people who believe in me. I wouldn’t be able to be this brave without all of you.
Thanks to fellow travel bloggers and writers Sarah Duff, Anton Crone, Ishay Govender-Ypma, and Keith Jenkins for inspiring me to take the plunge. Also thanks Andre van Kets for your time and motivation. I am so grateful for our wonderful wanderlusting community at the South African Travel Bloggers Network and my dear friends Sadia, Tebogo & Garret for their time and effort in helping me.
Ngiyabonga kakhulu to you all for your kindness and support in sharing the Mzansi love. More details coming up soon on my new ventures. Watch this space =)
