                                                                 Friendships


Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people.Friendship is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association.

"What does Friendship mean to me?" :
It is having friends that won't judge, but lift me up when I am down. It is friends that cheer me on when I am trying to do good in my life. It is friends who are supportive and will help me in whatever way possible. Friendship is not having to feel uncomfortable when you tell your friends something. Friendship is having friends that you do not have to stress about every time your back is turned. Friendship is having people who are there in dark days and good days. Friendship is having friends who don't sit around with the enemy.

The true meaning of friendship is when you consider the other person's well-being to be as valuable as your own. If you feel this way about a person, you are truly their friend. If you consider that another person's good is as important as your own, you will treat them the way friends are supposed to treat each other. Along with good friends who are present, loyal, and honest, most people want friends who are trustworthy. If you can't count on a person, it's hard to consider them a good friend. Mutual trust between friends is a building block of a solid friendship that could last a lifetime. One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.

Wow I have been hurt so many times, the first time I was hurt by a friend, I was in grade 9, when she basically started dating the same guy I was dating. They both did not tell me anything, I had to hear it from other people. That was so devastating for me, because I am not one that just let's her guard down and I did for both these people. Another one was having a friend here in Johannesburg that gossiped about all of us that were in one click, always made us look bad by the next and we all drifted apart, but all of us failed to see exactly who was the problem. Now recently I find out that my friend is sitting in the company of my ex and apparently his other flame ( he seems to have not one but two woman)- How can I have such in my life- where is the loyalty there..


"Life is better with true friends"- and I think this year I have found my group of ladies who i can finally TRUST...

Gossip Dies when it hits a wise person's ears

I always worried about what people said, I was always insecure. I think I started feeling like this from a very early age. In high school it was even worse. Lot's of girl's in school never liked me, so I always had a wall built up. I was gossiped about so many times. I will never forget the day I found out I was pregnant, I was still in school, I confided in a close friend- I should of never have done that because before I knew it, it was out. I was laughed at, I was mocked at and I believe that a lot of those people including some family members thought I will not make anything of myself because I "RUINED" my life.. I showed all of them that nothing will bring me down and up till this day I keep on shining no matter what life throws at me. Even me not been married at my age get's talked about- mainly by woman who are married. I have no clue why some married woman feel the need to look down on us single woman (we not interested in stealing your man, so what then.…

Never take a good woman for granted.....

 Never take a good woman for granted...
Men are quicker to move on, but usually live in regret. Woman usually take nonsense on; repeatedly and never think they are able to leave but once they do they go for good. When a woman says Enough is Enough, she will never change her mind. We are forgiving and patient. We are forgiving up to a certain extent. Never taker "her" patience for granted (once she is tired there is no way she will turn back). We take on a lot of terrible treatment from our people before we can actually stand on our feet and say this is ENOUGH.

A woman's tolerance can only go up to a certain extent. Some of us woman do not want to bear the embarrassment from family and friends for telling them our struggles. We do not want people to tell us when the time is right to leave. We will reach that stage on our own and know when the time is right. Men have to constantly stay on top of their game to make sure she is the Queen in their lives and she does get treated…

What was my biggest challenge for having my own business..

     What was my biggest challenge for having my own business..
My biggest challenge for wanting to have my own business was having an unsupportive partner, having a full time job and been a mother of 3…
In 2018 I needed to take charge of my life again, one step at a time..
1st was letting go of my partner, then I finally started doing things that I loved, like starting my small business- selling cars, also selling a weight loss product and then also starting my blog… it was still challenging for me to juggle everything because my full time job took most of my time, coming home and been attentive to my kids was important to me but I had to also make sure to make extra cash so that they are always comfortable.
Beginning of 2019 I was approached by one of my dear friends Dominic Carrim about an exciting opportunity…
She told me about it and I was hesitant and told her that I heard about Nuskin and I am not really interested (she was persistent and told me Chantal I know this is for you ;take…
