Hi guys It's with a broken but grateful heart that I write this post today.

The month of October in South Africa is breast cancer awareness month. I have had family members who had breast cancer, and I have had friends who had breast cancer.

This last Sunday, I had the misfortune of being a victim of an attempted hijacking. I wasn't hurt and nothing was taken, but I was very rattled.

I have taken some time out, and I feel a little better for it. I went and visited my family and some friends that I haven't seen in a long time for just under 2 weeks.

Whatever is happening in your life right now, whether it's good or bad, I want you to feel a little happier, more motivated and like your energy has been refreshed.… Continue reading Encouragement
If you are like me, and currently very broke, you would be one of very many people who are broke... or very broke. Sigh. Many things can lead us down the path of "brokedom".
