A new season a new freedom

To live the life that I want…

To do what I want, spend time where and with whom I want, to be free… Know myself, what I like, what I dislike, what I value, my goals, my standards…this makes me free to be me!

During the Covid pandemic I felt very lonely, anxious and restricted. Same way many of us felt. So much worse for a born rebel! But It changed me and the way I look at the future.

I am going to make better decisions. I want to spend time with compatible people. Build real and meaningful relationships. I want to live the way I want to live. Eliminate the things that does not suit me. Set boundaries and don’t let others hold me back.

Do the hard things, eat less, exercise more, laugh much more and love hard. Enjoy myself and my life. Be more positive – it turns my life around. Change self-damaging habits – this makes me feel more energized and physically healthy.

I am starting to believe more in my abilities, to break my inner chains. I am worthy enough, I am good enough, I am good looking enough.

To be free I focus on what I have and not on what I am missing. I want to travel more and experience more. I want to help others live their best life.

I strive to live in the moment, to be content to be joyous.

It is Spring and it is a new beginning with blessings. Life is like a beautiful tree going through seasons to begin a new cycle, a new life with budding blossoms fragrant and beautiful. I will never stop growing and believing. I will do my best and be truly free!

“There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”

A Little Free Library

We take for granted the privilege and accessibility we have to books! A while ago I wrote about the importance of reading stories to your children, to teach them about libraries and book shops, but not everyone can just pick up a book and read.

I came across the most amazing initiative, not unique to Hermanus, in fact it is a worldwide initiative. It just spoke to me on so many levels, the most important of it is sharing, sharing of knowledge, sharing of stories.

A Little Free Library is a free book exchange. It belongs to everyone and everyone can use it!

When you see something you would like to read in A Little Free Library, take it. When you are finished, share it with a friend, bring it back here, or leave it in another Little Free Library.


It is up to everyone to keep A Little Free Library full of good reads! Bring books to share when you can, and continue being a friend of Little Free Libraries everywhere!

This is not only for children, but for all ages.

How often have you read an amazing book and thought you could share it with someone who needs this exact story, but just kept it on your bookshelf. Yes you can take it anywhere, but this initiative is simply about sharing books, not about any other form of charity.

Mishka loved sharing her books and picking up books from other bookworms. This initiative has a clear message, it is about sharing!

Find a Little Free Library near you. I found ours on Facebook.
