How many times does it take for you to fail until you give up? Do you ever give up? Is that even an option? Do you need to know your limits and forfeit? Perserverance teaches you that repetition in your failing actually causes you to succeed. As long as you learn from your mistakes, adapt, … Continue reading Perseverance = Faith
Life is difficult. I’m sure you can relate. We experience storms in our lives that at times may seem impossible to overcome, yet we get through. Sometimes we don’t leave unscathed, but the scars remind us of how we overcame them. It is easier said than done, however. You may not always realise how close … Continue reading Rough Terrain
So I was busy reorganizing my cupboard, (and not the clothes you find on the inside, but rather on the outside that I have decorated). Some are posters, others are bookmarks and some are just some cool pictures I have collected on the way. But the one thing that is from my very own handwriting … Continue reading Word wall

Day 3: Detour
This is a story of one of my days cycling nearly 800km over a week. This day was one that was very taxing but yet rewarding in the end. My third day's goal was to get from Knysna to Hartenbos.

Joy!No pestilence lurking in the darkest hour,Nor any plague that attacks at midday,Will come between you and your joy Countless droughts in the desert, And much unrest in the valley,Cannot drench any of your joy inside of you Many shall come to inquire,What is … Continue reading Joy!
Can you rely on others?
What is the ultimate test to determine whether you can trust someone? You just trust them. That may sound rather absurd, but I will get back to you in a moment regarding that. Till the recent passing of my mother my parents were one of the greatest marriages I have ever known. They were a … Continue reading Can you rely on others?
