And I know you are busy, but I just need a few minutes of your time.

Your precious time, spent listening to us every day.

Listening to us whine and complain about every little thing.

In this ever changing world, a world once so beautiful, some believed it to be heaven, we question your actions, doubt your power, demand to have more than our neighbour, and cry when we get what we wanted, because it’s still never enough.

We sit back with folded arms when your world is falling apart, being destroyed by those who hunger for power. We watch as buildings come crumbling down, homes are burnt to the ground, faces of children begging for mercy. And that’s the only time we thank you God. “We thank you God, that it’s not happening to us, Thank you God for protecting us, thank you God it’s not my child, thank you God it’s happening in another country”,,, and then we switch channels and go back to our lives. Lives  we find so boring, because we think we have so little.

How do you put up with us, GOD ?

 God, your name is AL – GHAFFAR –

“The all forgiving, the absolver, the veiler of sins and faults, the most protecting one.”

“The one who accepts repentance and veils or forgives our faults and sins, time and time again. The one who sets us free from guilt and shame of our sins and faults, such that we may discover inner harmony and peace”

“The one who can set aright or transform wrong deeds and change them into what become good deeds”

I write to you God, to ask you to forgive us for our actions, for being ungrateful and selfish. Forgive us for only thinking about ourselves.

Create in us such compassion, God, so our hearts become softened by seeing the plight of others, and that our eyes are cleared of short sightedness and we learn to appreciate what we already have.



your humble human



I wish I knew then, what I know now. Life would’ve been so much simpler……

It’s time to work smarter, not harder.

A few of my favourite hacks of life…………..




Too often, these little lego figures end up under the bed or under our feet….finally found something useful to do with them…just secure figurine with a bit of Prestik to the desk/table top.



No need to chase the kids outside anymore, when eating ice – cream.


who would’ve thought….bread clips…..mmmmm



Cut pool noodle into 4 pieces, thread rope/twine through pieces and VOILA

As easy as that..


Place a wooden spoon over a pot, to prevent boiling over


Flattened pillow? Put it in the sun for 30 minutes. The sun will absorb moisture and plump up your pillow..


Use a hanging shoe organiser for cleaning supplies


rOld cereal container as a trash can in the car…this i need..


use toothpaste on those old musty looking headlights…

 I’m definitely trying some of these this weekend



Why didn’t I think of this???  Fold your sheets and put them in one of the matching pillow cases…looks neat and also very easily accessible


Last but not least…my favourite,

C              use-pool-noodles-to-keep-tall-boots-upright-life-hack

Cut pool noodles as insert for long boots. Retains shape and looks neat in the shoe cabinet.

(old, rolled up magazines also work perfectly)


Society is funny…they ask you to be yourself and then they judge you…..

Part of society thinks I should maintain my ‘round’ figure because it’s a sign of good health, while the other part of society feel that I’m just not good enough to fit in, unless I join a gym and lose a few kilos..

I’m accepted by some and rejected by others… which way do I go?

Basically, If you are skinny, you are anorexic,

If you are even slightly overweight, you are obese,

If you are a virgin, you are good,

If you are a ‘non – virgin’, you are bad,

If you are friendly, you are a fake,

If you are quiet, you are rude….

Society is never pleased.


Where exactly is this handbook that tells you how to be perfect?

Perfection comes from within ourselves. It’s how we feel in our own skin and the ability to show it to the world.

 Confidence is a beauty most people lack. We step out into the world with a painted mask, seldom do we allow the world to see the real person behind the mask. The reason is fear. We fear the way people might judge us for the way we look, or dress.

We tend to work long hours to keep up an appearance that society wants to see. We accumulate more debt in order to live the lifestyle we cannot afford.

Our bodies and wallets are screaming out for a ‘time out’, but our egos and pride need to keep up with the Joneses and to let the world know that “we have arrived”

We allow Society to dictate the ‘do’s and don’ts of our lives, to the extent that we can’t tell what really makes us happy anymore…



Marilyn Manson rightly quoted:

“we live in a society of victimisation, where people are much more comfortable being victimised than actually standing up for themselves”…..

Bending to society’s unspoken rule is a form of victimisation. Not being able to be who you want to be, is a form of victimisation….
