Appreciate the Elderly




                                                                           Appreciate the Elderly


Sunday I was at the Reuven Senior Centre, we gave the elderly a good lunch for Christmas. These people are suffering at this Centre, they were so overjoyed for this lunch- it was not much but it put a smile on their faces. Been around so many old people got me thinking. We do not appreciate them so much. We forget that they have paved the way for us to be where we are. 

Some days I travel in a bus from Johannesburg Central to my house in the afternoons. There are many old people in the bus. Sometimes the bus becomes overloaded and there are kids sitting and leaving the elderly to stand until their destination. It just goes to show how different we all are because of how we have been brought up. We need to teach our kids to be more respectful. Even if you see an old person walking from the store and they going in the same direction as you, offer to help with their parcels.. Small little things matter. Respect is so important, it takes you a long way in life. 
We all so busy, but just try providing help to an elder:
  • Offer to provide support. Elders often need some kind of support with simple day to day tasks
  • Take on the responsibilities that you can. You might not be able to provide all of the care that the person needs. ..
  • Help them stay healthy. ...
  • Let them know you respect them.Tell them of how much you appreciate them an love them.
Take time to listen to their concerns, some become very needy and need attention- don't just ignore it. Don't let them feel left out, ask for their opinions, you will be surprised (involve him or her in some decisions). Don't ever talk about him or her like they are not around. Speak to him or her like they adults. We need to spend more time with our elders, be more polite, make them feel involved and important- ask questions- about your heritage. 

One day you will be old, so you just put yourself in their shoes. If you are mistreating and elder ask yourself if this is the life you want when you their age.
It is Christmas time- now a days all we care about is party time- we forget the true meaning of Christmas. Christmas is about sharing and giving, Christmas is about family. There are so many people who will be lonely on Christmas, if you know of any elderly person that is all alone- why not invite them for lunch (little things matter). I wish my granny was just across the road, distance kills me- but I know that she loves me no matter what, she knows I hold her in high regard with so much respect- My Queen 💝💝


Receiving respect from others is important because it helps us to feel safe and to express ourselves. Being respected by important people in our lives growing up teaches us how to be respectful toward others. ... Respect in your relationships builds feelings of trust, safety, and wellbeing.

Deuteronomy: 34:7- Remember the days of the old, consider the generations long past. Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders, and they will explain to you. 💓🙏

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…
