Latest blog post: Don't let a painful past dictate your present 
We are all a product of our experiences. Good or bad, our conscious and unconscious past permeates our present thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and actions. It is only by becoming aware of or acknowledging this that we can examine our inhibitions and fears.  Like me, you probably have emotional scars. We all do, whether we are aware of them or not. Examples include the pain you may have felt from being teased at school. Or the fear you m...

In support of World AIDS day, I would like to share my thoughts on how I think we may be able to alleviate the impact of #HIV and #AIDS. After all, it starts with us being able to discuss this topic more openly. #WAD2014 #CloseTheGap
“History will judge us on how we respond to the AIDS emergency in Africa....whether we stood around with watering cans and watched while a whole continent burst into flames....or not.”  - Bono A few weeks ago, while preparing for an academic essay, I found myself head-deep in literature on HIV and AIDS. As someone who lives in South Africa, I was aware that this pandemic had firm roots on the African continent. In fact, Sub-...

My thoughts on finding meaning through our challenges...
"When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change.” - Paulo Coelho (The Devil and Miss Prym) In life, we encounter a myriad of challenges. Just think of what comes our way in an average week across various areas of life, such as our relationships, work, health or money. These challenges can either teach us something and strengthen our personal character, or can leave us feeling ...

In discussing HIV and AIDS more openly, we may be able to alleviate the impact of the disease in South Africa. It starts with each one of us. #WAD2014 #CloseTheGap

It is this interaction between dreams and ...

Leo Buscaglia We live in a world where, all too often, we want more. More money. More success. More personal brand power. More respect. However, if we think carefully about our lives, we might acknowledge that we have everything ...
