Hello sweetie,

Spring is now in full swing and the house is finally clear of the last of winters cobwebs. I’ve realised that it’s also a great time to review the current year and ensure that the goals for it are being met. After all, there are only 2 months left before 2014 says sayonara!

If you’re falling behind on what you wanted to accomplish this year, you have only now to change your current behaviours to align with your goals.

Sure it’s great going out to braais (bbqs), parties, and dinners with friends now that the weather is nice, but if like me, you’re falling behind on a personal project, remember to focus and make a short-term sacrifice for those future rewards (which is far easier said then done, I know!).

The below quote is similar to a Mahatma Gandhi one: ““Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.”

So step back and remember to:

This month, ensure that your current behaviour and goals align with who you want to be in the future, and that your beliefs are mirrored in your actions.

Day after day it’s the little victories which build you into the person you’re going to become.

Until next time, keep it shiny,

Hello lovelies,

With spring bursting to life all around us, now is the time to literally stop and smell the roses that have bloomed. To give thanks for the beauty around us, and to remember that after months of enduring dark days and cold nights, we arise refreshed and ready for the months of action ahead.

The quote below is by Maya Angelou, and I think it’s about time we acknowledge that the light each of us has within can never be extinguished by others – for you alone choose how to feel and react to the circumstances and words around you.

Always choose love, always choose happiness, and in caring for others, remember to care for yourself first.

Until next time,

Ja ne,

Hello there darlings,

I know I skipped out on last month’s quote post, but alas being in another theatre show has taken a toll on my free time in the best possible ways *but still, tsk tsk to me for leaving you hanging!*.

This month’s quote has actually multiplied into several ‘quotes’ – and each of the below is a whopping big suitcase of emotional weight for me – since one of my all-time favourite actors was found dead in his room yesterday, with suicide suspected.

For those not in the know (or reading this years later, going “huh?”), I’m talking about Robin Williams, who I will always remembered for his role in Dead Poet Society as my “Captain, oh my Captain” (which could explain my love of Mal Reynolds, Jack Harkness, and Jack Sparrow later in life, but that’s besides the point of this post).

So as noted above, this month gets several quotes dedicated to the belated, inspiring, and gentle comic genius of Robin Williams, whom I will always admire, respect, and who I hope is in a better, more peaceful place now that his struggle with depression is over:


This makes me so sad now!








So this month, don’t take no for an answer. Seize the day, tell others you love them, care for those less fortunate without any expectations, and give of yourself generously. You never know who appreciates that smile or helping hand you give them.

Until next time.

Keep it shiny,

Daughter of Dreams
