Sunday Reflections - Be your own hero

Sunday, 11 November 2018


This week has been very busy and calming at the same time. Being so active on my blog again, coming up with business ideas and spending the weekend at Sun City for the Nedbank Golf Challenge. As I reflect back I realise that sometimes you will have no one in your corner cheering you on, so you will have to do it yourself. You are going to have to be there for yourself, always.

A thought...

This week I came up with an idea for what I believe will be a brilliant business idea, but when I turned to share my idea with the people who I thought would stand by me, I realised I was all alone. It hurts but you know what? I will make a success of it. I will be my own hero. I'll be my own cheering squad. Cause when all is said and done, I'm all I have.

A piece of advice...

Never silence the little voice in your head that tells you something isn't right. When your gut tells you that something isn't right about someone, believe it. Don't let people smooth talk you. Don't let them make you out to be the bad ones. Rather walk away from them before you get hurt.

Quote of the week...

Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you will be criticized anyway.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Song of the week...

Never Enough - Kelly Clarkson

The reimagined version of The Greatest Showman Soundtrack, has been on repeat, with a few of the songs being released during the week. I love Kelly's version of this song. Her voice has always been my favorite. She brings this song to life. Definitely give it a listen.

I'm trying to hold my breath
Let it stay this way
Can't let this moment end
You set off a dream in me
Getting louder now
Can you hear it echoing?
Take my hand
Will you share this with me?
'Cause darling without you
All the shine of a thousand spotlights
All the stars we steal from the nightsky
Will never be enough
Never be enough
Towers of gold are still too little
These hands could hold the world but it'll
Never be enough
Never be enough
Lesson of the week...
Although your heart is the largest beating organ in your body, you shouldn't listen to it all the time. Rather use your head. This week I went against my better judgement and let someone in that, once before showed me that I meant nothing to them. But I let them in and what did they do? Hurt me again. This time I was prepared and honestly felt nothing when I cut them out my life. I feel a great sense of relief. 
Grateful for...
This week I am grateful for myself. I look back at my life and I realise that I am stronger than I realise. There is nothing this world could throw at me, that I couldn't get through. I might seem a little defeated but I know my strength and I know I will make it through anything.
