New beginnings and forgiveness

New beginnings and forgiveness.

The new year has finally arrived and a lot of us are hoping for changes and great beginnings to all things. Many of us see a brand new year as a second chance which is acceptable, because we got to learn from the previous year and a brand new year calls for improvements from the previous year. I for one lost a lot of people in the previous year, a lot happened that left me undecided as to what loyalty mean. I doubt it still mean anything in this new age, it's just a word with no meaning practised. I'm human and so is everyone else. I'm not the type to dwell on one thing for a long time. Hurt me and apologise and I gurantee you a forgiven and forgotten act.

I've done a lot of wrong in life but as human as I am, I gathered the strength to apologise. Many don't apologise because they are choosing pride over meaningful friendships. I realised that I have the will to forgive after losing my best friend of many years after our disagreement on the smallest details of life.We let go of our friendship of over 20 years and stopped talking and pretended like we never met until the day she was brutally murdered.  Yes I was very angry at her and wanted nothing to do with her but her death made me realise how much I loved and needed her still. Pride took over everything that meant the world to me and today I live a life full of regrets. I keep on thinking that things could have been different but it's way too late for that now.

With this experience I have now decided that pride and I now live in two different worlds. I tend to apologise even when I'm not the one in the wrong but because there's more to life than letting go of things that mean the world to you. Pride destroys a lot of wonderful things in life and leaves happy soul in dark shades. Forgiveness is beautiful and frees one's soul.

An educated gold digger

An educated gold digger.


I'm comfortable in my own skin and everyone is hating.  I live the life any girl my age can only dream of. I have the top billing house and the can't get rides. I don't have a baby to nurture and girls my age have two of those. I'm still much too young to mess my figure over little people who just cry,eat and sleep. I love the club life now who would take care of the kids while I'm living my life like the young vibrant soul that I am,or I forgot to mention the finest beautiful being that I am. I am sexy AF,  I'm a graduate but I never saw my self doing a 9-5 job no way I'm too pretty for such struggles and poverty. They call me the young Khanyi Mbau and I don't give a rat ass because I'm paying the bills with the looks. I'm an educated Gold digger,  I don't let broke niggas anywhere near me and the blessed brothers(rich brothers ) would never get between my legs for a mere moet...never baby that's why everyone is hating. I'm a strategic gold digger and I pay the bill a with just looks.

Age really mean nothing to me,  I go for anything with deep pockets and make sure I leave a whole in the pocket when I'm done. Yes Khanyi is my role model. I had a tough life growing up and I swore on my parents ' s grave that I might have been born poor but I rent die poor and more over I will not make money for white people. I'll be my own boss and own a one woman company and I'm proud to say I'm living my dreams.  You can talk all you want but that's not going to reduce my bank account in fact it's making it fatter. Oh and ladies when I find out the things you say behind my bank then rest assured that the most successful male in your circle is my next target.  I shall deal with you loud mouths.

Found my soul mate at a drinking bar

Found my soul mate at a drinking bar

I was out on a Sunday morning,at my favourite bar of all times. I went there regularly and on this odd day I noticed a very classy and gorgeous woman in tears.  She was beautiful even in her pool of tears. I asked the bar man to give her whatever she's having on my tab. I watched the bar man deliver my drink and message,  I asked him to tell her that I'm a very good listener and I've been told this by my little sister.  I saw him point me out and I knew message was delivered.  She looked at me with very scary eyes like she was really annoyed and Damn she looked super great. I looked away downing my drink because I was eager to join the lady and as I finished my drink I put the glass down and turned around and she was right behind me. She asked if she could join me and I got up quicker than any fast animal you thinking of right now to pull the chair for her and she sat down.  She smelled upserlutely devine, she's got hazel life and I was feeling things I never felt my whole life.

We had a good conversation and we realised that we love the same things and she wasn't just beautiful but Damn she had the brains too. We drank so much and I took her home. But I was scared this would make me appear as someone who takes girls home every weekend but she insisted and I couldn't turn such a fine woman down, I was scared she might think I'm not man enough to satisfy her if I kept on insisting I take her to her place instead of mine. We had the most amazing sex ever, I felt things that no woman ever made me feel. She was upserlutely enjoyable. We fell asleep and the next morning I woke up to a note on her pillow

"MY HUSBAND CHEATED ON ME, I WASN'T GOING TO FORGIVE HIM BUT THANKS TO YOU I'VE REALISED THAT MEN ARE EASILY SEDUCED AND EVEN IF I LEAVE HIM ,THE NEXT ONE WILL STILL CHEAT ON ME. I'M GOING TO MAKE IT WORK,GOODBYE ".

My daughter died and I killed a man

My daughter died and I killed a man.

Worst day of my life. It felt like the Devil was testing me. My daughter and I were enjoying her favourite cartoons on the Disney Junior channel and the weather was just perfect for coffee and popcorn on the couch with my day one. Suddenly the rain got worse and there was a lot of wind blowing and deep down I was getting scared because there was nothing normal about the windy and rainy situation outside.  Suddenly the roof was shaky and I knew right then that it wasn't going to end well. I had to act brave for my angel . Our roof fell on her. I was traumatised, I got all the heavy metals that was on her off her and got her in the car and drove like a lunatic.  The wind blew off our roof and suddenly stopped.  On my way to the nearest hospital there was a man on the road , I think the wind blew something hard at him and it broke his leg because my last picture of him was him waving at me to stop the car but the speed that I was at, there was just no way I could have stopped. I hit the brakes but it was already too late.  I killed the helpless man and God took my baby away.  My life will never be the same again.

Your my Wife not my Warden

Your my Wife not my Warden

We are always hearing stories about how men are controlling and abusing women but men are scared to speak up because they don't want to look weak and it would bruise their ego.  I'm tired of keeping quiet I've had it with my wife. She's different from the person I married years back. She is a warden, a spy and a stalker. She attacks every female I talk to and she once slapped me in the mall just because the cashier smiled at me and I smiled back.  I'm not allowed to have a female's phone number in my phone unless it's hers. The only females in my life now is my siblings and our daughter.  She doesn't trust me even with her own sisters yet I can't leave her because the thought of being away from my kids scares me more than her psycho self. She gets crazy even when i greet the ladies from our neighbourhood even though they are married. I've had it with this woman but I don't want to lose my kids.  All my friends have turned their backs on me because she blames and insults them for everything . She's insecure and bitter and she measures my drive from my work to home after work. She goes crazy if I'm late even by one minute. Best believe it, women change once they are wifed.  Careful who you wife or you'll be a prisoner in your own home.

Spring cleaning in the festives

Spring cleaning in the festives

Growing up we have always had an every year thing which we call the "thorough cleaning " most popular as spring cleaning to the black society. Every thing gets literally turned in the house for some inside and out cleaning.  Windows being one of the biggest deal gets washed, curtains are removed and get washed and so does the windows.  The inside of the house literally gets stripped,  floor mats get washed and so does all the blankets and duvets . Nothing gets left behind, even roofs and walls gets repainted but that's a job for the men in the house.  Ladies however just have a lot more to do. It's no child's play to wash blankets and duvets not forgetting the windows and it's curtains,I keep repeating the windows and curtains part because i really hate it.  One would just literally run away from home for just that day but if you dare try that then you'll literally have the worst festive holidays ever.

As if all that is not enough we also have to take out all the cuttlery ,cups, glasses and plates from the cupboards an wash them even when they are clean ,including those we never used . Black mom's teach all the black children that slavery and child labour is OKAY just for that day. Lol well once everything is done and the house smells really good and we are made to believe that it smells brand new, each and everyone in the house gets a special reward. It's not fun but it's worth it, as long as it makes mama happy then we have a happy home.

New year's Resolutions ends in financial crisis - 2016

New year's Resolutions ends in financial crisis.

I make a list of a few things to change in my life yearly. Sadly I fail to make them a success.  Here's my list yearly.

Losing weight
Every festives I tell my self that I'm going to lose weight. Eat healthy and exercise more. I've been signing up with virgin active every January for the past three years but end up terminating the contract around May because the excitement of the new year is long gone.

Spending less and Investing more!

I'm the type that loves shopping and restaurants. I tell my self that I'm going to spend very little and start investing on long and short term investments but I end up with more bills and zero investments.

Spending more time with my kids and going out a little less!

I always say I'm done with the night life of spending a lot on booze when I can stay home and spend less than a hundred rand on ice cream and popcorn over cartoon networks but instead I end up out and above every single weekend.

Am I the only one with these weaknesses?  Why is it so hard to carry out these simple resolutions. I slave away daily at work but in the end I have nothing worth the sweats to show for it. I do have a few things in my name but the truth is they belong to the bank and they can be taken away from me anytime. I drive a fancy car but it adds more bills, my house is in my name but we all know it's not truly mine. I have been employed for over 24years yet I have nothing in my name that's really mine.

Forgiving, letting go and moving on

Forgiving, letting go and moving on.

I got married at a very young age,a lot of people told me I'm making a mistake, that it was too soon. But I was inlove and I knew that none of them understood what I was feeling.  I was genuinely happy. My family didn't like the idea of me getting married so young but they had to respect it.

On our 4th anniversary he passed away ,leaving me with his six year old son from his past. We lived with the son and I treated him like my own.  We were still trying for our own. His family treated me like an outcast, they accused me of killing him. How could I kill the man I loved with everything in me?  They turned even his son whom I took in as my own against me. He disrespected me and called me all sorts of names.  He got his mom to move into our home. My husband's family were happy about that, they would visit and treat her like the madam of the house while treating me like their maid.

I couldn't take it anymore,  I moved back home with my dad. Mom passed away so it was just me and my dad. He was also in his old age so he got really sick and eventually passed on too. I learned the hard way. But I have forgiven them even though they never apologised.  I have let go of the anger and moved away from the pain.

Relationship goals

Relationship goals.

Relationships are fun when you are a teenager, you are young ,wild and care free. At this point you are just living for the moment because the future can take care of its self. You can date as many partners as you want simultaneously,you can break as many hearts as you want . Growing older you'll then learn a lot. Sometimes the older you grow will be the more you will then realise one of the hearts that you broke as the heart that you shouldn't have broken.

When you are in your twenties, relationships should be about building a life together, dreaming big together.  Being ambitious together and encouraging and inspiring each other. The long list of partners should be let go of. It's no longer about me or them but US. It's okay to have friends but they need to know that they come second . Do to your partner what you'd want them to do to you. It you are in your twenties and you are still doing the things that you did as a twin then rest assured that you will have the biggest regrets in your 30's. It's possible that no one might want you then. Breaking hearts might seem like a lot of fun but wait until your heart gets broken.

Polygamy is not a Deal Breaker

Polygamy is not a Deal Breaker.
I met a wonderful man a while ago and I fell in love with him deeply. It was more of love at first sight. We are both in our 20's and he's from a different country. He still melts my heart like the first time I laid my eyes on him. For a little while I wasn't sure if the feeling was mutual but eventually I found out that it was. He asked me to be his Girlfriend and I was happy to take him in and give my heart. He treated me right and showered me with the kind of Love that most South African men failed to. A few weeks later he told me we needed to talk and he sounded pretty serious so I wasn't really worried because I knew he loved me as much as I loved him,  but I was curious as to what could the talk be about.

Finally the wait was over, he came over and threw a bomb at me. I'll never forget that moment when he said "baby I'm married back home, and we have a son together ". I felt my heart shrink and my eyes got teary. He held my hand and said I'm not playing games with your heart, I  have a wife that I love and I also love you just as much. I didn't know what he meant by that or why he was even telling me all these. He continued and said I'm not breaking up with you but asking you to marry me aswell.  I love him so much that losing him was not an option. I gave it a try,  it was hard on both the first wife and I...people judge us by saying we are much too young  but we don't care, we are putting our happiness first. She's now like an older sister to, she's got the heart of gold and now I can't imagine life without my two best friends and our son. I am blessed beyond measures.

make money online - there is money on the net

There's money online
Everyone relies on the Internet for almost everything these days. People depend on the Internet for entertainment such as social networks and some use it to find information about open vacancies around the world. We also have those who sell or buy things online. Everything revolves around the Internet these days so much that we would rather talk to people through certain social networks online than going out to meet them.  The lucky ones have met the love of their lives online and are happily married now. Only a few know that money can be made online as well.  It's so easy, there are paid surveys online which you get paid for sharing your opinion with certain companies and there is Google Adsense aswell where you get paid for doing the things that you love such as writing blogs and so forth.  Let's all get wise and not just use the Internet to catch up on celebrity gossips or spend money on data just to stalk our crushes let's use the Internet to develop our selves and make money online.

How to Drink without getting Drunk/wasted

How to Drink without getting Drunk/wasted.
With the festive season here its hard to follow the "drink responsibly or don't drink and drive" rules . So I decided to do a little research and experiments on ways to drink as much as you want but still function soberly.  I once heard of detoxing , drinking a glass of water in between glasses of alcohol. Most ladies say they use this to avoid the morning after effects, so I tried it and it worked wonderfully for me. I didn't get drunk and I woke up feeling fresh.  A friend once told me that eating oily food before drinking also works so I ate pork , I drank later on and I was the last man standing.  One of the weirdest was when I was told to swallow "yeast " before drinking,  lol yes you are reading right,  I'm talking about the yeast that you buy with your groceries the exact dry white powder. You just swallow it before drinking and you will never know of being drunk ever, to make it more palatable you can stir it in your plain yoghurt, just one tablespoon. You will stay sober and wake up fresh. I tried it and I felt the need to share.

Ho!Ho!Ho! Merry Christmas and a sober New Year!

Gone Forever - my husband is gone

Gone Forever!!!

My husband kissed me goodbye that morning and we both drove off to work in different cars. We spoke on WhatsApp as usual, he checks up on me all day when we are not together.  I have known him practically my whole life and he had become comfortable with finding me at home ,but now my maternity leave was over and I had to leave our 3 month old baby at home. On many occasions he had told me how the both of us leaving our baby for work makes it hard for him to concentrate at work. I think he wanted me to quit and become a house wife and a full time mother. But I'm a career woman with dreams and ambitions, I will not cope with being a stay at home mother and a house wife.

He called around 4pm that day and asked me to tell the house helper not to cook dinner for he will be bringing us something special.  This man is spoiling me rotten,  but I understand because I finally made him a father after 8 years of trying, he was now fully committed to his family over his career. Before the baby, his work came
first and at times it felt like I was loosing him. I let our helper know that hubby is bringing the restaurant treats to us and she was happy. I drove back home and on my everyday  short cut to home there was an accident and we were told to use the other road, it takes longer to get home with that road and that's why I never liked it. But I had to oblige, now there was traffic on the long road home too. I took out my phone, I had to call hubby and let him know which road to use and save him the trouble of being turned back. I found a text from him saying" today was the longest day of my life babe, I have never in my life missed you this much. I love you the mother of my child,the wife and the food of my soul" I blushed lol well I'm used to such messages but the only difference this time is that I didn't see this message immediately because I usually reply in 0.00001 seconds. I called him and his phone took me to voice mail. I was driving and decided I'd text him when I get home. I got home and replied to the love of my life. We waited for him and he was late for dinner with the dinner,  his phone wasn't going through.  Where is this man? An hour later we heard a knock on our front door and I rushed to open thinking he had left his keys at the office as always.  Three police men at my door step and his sister was with them and she looked like someone who have been crying for days. He left me and our baby, he must have forgotten to say goodbye or maybe he's coming back. He can't be gone forever...but he is! My baby is gone Forever!!!

Married men and young girls - side dish

Married men and young girls.
That night at the club my friends and I noticed a bunch of school girls and we approached them. They received us well so we showered them with expensive drinks. I was eyeing on this particular one with a booty enough to feed my arrogant soul. My friends and I are all married and we didn't hide that from the girls but school girls are wild and naive so that never really bothers them. My eye candy was the quiet and shy one amongst her friends, Well she was the prettiest too. And I was the most moneyed amongst my friends so l get to choose the girl I want first. I sat next to her and she seemed uncomfortable, she said it was her first time at the club and I wanted her more now than ever. She further said she's in a serious relationship and I told her I was married but unhappy. That's the trick, tell them you are married but unhappy. Make them believe they hold the key to your happiness, they are just a bunch of young fools and they will certainly believe whatever. There was something about this eye candy, she seemed lost, I could tell she was a virgin to this lifestyle and her ugly looking friend was the pro. I was going to take my time with her, I'm no longer looking for a one night stand but a side chick.  She was perfect in all kinds of ways and she reminded me of my wife when she was younger.

I was willing to win her trust so I can win her punani for more than one night. It was barely midnight and she was already in a hurry to leave. I offered to take her to her flat  and she refused. She said she would wait for her friends,  I waited with her. There was no way I was letting this one go. My bazooka needs her type,finally she agreed so I took her home and asked for her number on the way and she refused so I gave her my card. I was trying to win her trust so I didn't try anything funny, I dropped her off and left. The next day I received a call with an unfamiliar number and the name didn't ring a bell but when she said we met last night at the club I knew it was my club virgin. I went to see her later and the ugly friend came out and said her friend wasn't intrested but she was. I was disappointed but I needed to take my frustrations out on something so I took her to a hotel and banged her angrily ,gave her a thousand rand and never contacted her again. But I still think about my eye candy all the time and I wish I could just bump into her someday.

Little Bambinos are Graduating

Little Bambinos are Graduating!

These are one of the best joyful moments for all parents.  Seeing your little ones in their cute little gowns, knowing that this is it...The journey begins.  This brings all kinds of emotions to every parent.  The joy in the heart knowing that it's time for the real world and the parents become emotional when they wonder if the little princes and princesses are ready to embark on the new journey. A few days ago we attended the Kiddies Adventure's Graduation at Kirkney Park and even we were touched to see the little one's bid farewell to their day mothers but this made the day mothers very proud. We spoke to the Principal of the school Ms Trudie Groeners and she was very emotional as she said she's going to miss her babies but she's got to accept and let them go because they are growing older and they need to spread their wings and fly.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE LITTLE GRADUATES ALL OVER THE WORLD...PAINT THE WORLD PINK AND BLUE OUR ANGELS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

inspirational lady to the world

Bongiwomuhle Pearl Mdluli
Beautiful inside and out. The 22 year old from Bergville, Emazizini has contributed in a lot of self worth and confidence in our youth today.  She has given the world hope and courage to stand up and say "I will and I can". The self driven young lady has instilled a positive energy to our young generation. Her favourite song being Hero by Mariah Carey comes as the best song choice as she is our hero herself.  Most of us couldn't find the hero within ourselves  but we found it in her. Now we can confidently say there's a whole lot to look forward to in life even after a little storm. The world needs more of Ntombiwomuhle Pearl Mdluli, our pride and joy.

People inspired by her...

We spoke to Elizabeth Koka from Limpopo who have been on a wheelchair since the age of 7. A 25 year old who had to drop out of school in grade 1 says after watching Ntombiwomuhle's story on KZN tv a while back she then decided next year she's registering with adult school.

All the best Elizabeth and Thank you Ntombiwomuhle for being the world's eye opener.

Baby mama's worst mistake - mothers are fathers

Baby mama's worst mistake

Today's generation is a generation of step children and step parents, we have accepted and made peace with that. But now there's something about baby mamas and their baby daddies.  It doesn't matter how they became exes even with the baby or babies being a part of the relationship now.  The children usually don't have a say whether they want their parents separated or not it's not up to them to decide. The baby daddies find it easy to move on to the next one while the baby mamas wait longer before deciding what to do.

In our society today baby daddies aren't judged much it's much easier for them to jump from one relationship to the next without being judged while it's the opposite for the baby mama. When you are a woman with a baby the society makes it impossible for you to find love from anyone other than the father of your baby. This suppresses a lot of baby mamas from moving on because they believe in validation from the society.  They end up going back to the same asshole that broke them into pieces over and over again untill they forget their self worths.  They end up believing that they are not worthy of being loved by anyone else.  BABY MAMA let go of what was and enjoy what "is" and stop calling your self baby mama because you are more than that. Let go and live. There's more to life than your past and it's people.

Thick women are pretty too

Thick women are pretty too.

The world have brain washed a lot of us , we are made to believe that thin is beautiful and thick is a silent cry for help.  I've always been over weight    with zero confidence because I was seen as unhealthy and unattractive. Even on social networks beauty means thin and I was far from thin. I hated what I saw in the mirror and it made me hate my self even more. I tried all kinds of diets including the liquid only diet which only left me ill and hospitalised. I tried so hard to fit in and win the cutest guy's attention  but he never noticed and I never fit in.

I tried committing suicide a number of times because the world was mean to me and people were only nice to me when they had a use for me. Once they done using me then they would later toss me aside like an object. I couldn't take it anymore,  my mama told me I'm the prettiest girl on earth and I knew she was just saying it to me because she owed it to me. She's the reason I'm this big. One day I bumped into a gay guy who wore things only designers would wear.  I was jogging when he stopped his car and asked for two minutes of my time.  He told me about a new brand he's launching in a month's time for full figured women, he asked me to take part because I have the perfect body and features.  For the first time in my life a total stranger called me beautiful and I actually believed it. I went for fittings and rehearsals and the launch day finally arrived and my body was all over the social networks and a lot of people referred it as beautiful and they gave me the respect I deserve.  I feel beautiful more and more everyday now. I am beautiful even with the extra meat. I'm perfect even with the cellulites,  my stretch marks completes the woman that I am meant to be. I love my thick self and wouldn't have it any other way.
