LOVE LIKE YOU’VE NEVER BEEN HURT

Gugu / 22 Jul, 2020

Love like you’ve never been hurt! Ha! This is one of those statements that sounds so super annoying and denialist. Like, if you’ve ever been hurt, you’ll agree that the immediate and visceral reaction to this statement is the deepest kind of eye roll you can execute. Like, please. Eye roll, eye roll, eye roll…then add a cutting side eye. What witchcraft is this? Why is my pain and my experience being minimized? Momma didn’t raise no fool. I get hurt, I become a lesser/meaner/worser version of myself. I stop giving people the benefit of the doubt, I shut down…

VLOG: LOCKDOWN CHRONICLES

Lulu / 17 Jun, 2020

*dusts off cobwebs* is this thing on? Hi guys, so I know it’s literally been 105 days since we were last on here, and just writing the number 105 makes me even feel shy.. like I can’t believe it’s been that long, yikes! But I guess with the never ending plot twists that 2020 keeps giving us, the hiatus (though abrupt, sorry about that) was bound to happen, because (I’ll speak for myself) for a while there, I was unable to can. The only thing that made sense was sleep, and so sleeping I did! But I guess if I’m…

Alexa, Play “In Over My Head”

Lulu / 4 Mar, 2020

I was going to begin this blog with a cliche statement which goes a little something like, “I can’t believe it’s already March, where has all the time gone”… and while it is a fitting statement, because.. I honestly cannot comprehend the fact that its already March… the truth is, I realise why for the most part we always think time is never on our side. Maybe I’m mistaken and an invisible speed x2 button has been pressed on life and everything we are used to experiencing is happening at double the speed (which would honestly make sense… in a…

A CHANGE IS COMING…

Gugu / 19 Feb, 2020

LOGOSOPHICAL family!!! I am back! Yes! And it feels good. It is a blessing for me to write for this blog. As I have mentioned before, it is a part of my soul work. It causes me to deeply introspect and provides a platform for reflection about the days of my life, haha. My last blog was a reflection of the year – the key takeaway of 2019. And in that piece, I spoke about how God had started to make me understand that where I was, was not because He had forgotten me or that I was unloved, off-course…

#PODCAST: IS LOVE ENOUGH, PT.2

Lulu / 5 Feb, 2020

…and we’re back! This week, in pt 2 of the podcast we continue our conversation about love and whether that in itself, is enough.. we look at how we define it and have defined it in the past and where we may (if at any point) have gone wrong in those definitions. We also look at what role society or “peer pressure” has played in us choosing to be in love, and what pressures we also knowingly or unknowingly put on ourselves, especially when we think we’ve done everything right, and yet for some reason our ideal love hasn’t happened…

#PODCAST: IS LOVE ENOUGH?

Lulu / 29 Jan, 2020

How would you answer that question? Yes? No? Maybe?….. If? Only? But? Without giving away any spoilers, (our thoughts are expressed in the podcast) because trust me I could go on, what I will say is that I suppose there are many ways to answer that question, and one could say many determining factors in answering it too. I definitely think there can be a case to be made for either answer, because love in and of itself is such a big word, big concept, big feeling… and I don’t know if such a question can have a straight forward…

THE ONLY THING NOT WORKING FOR ME, IS ME

Lulu / 17 Jan, 2020

I know its a couple of weeks late, but Happy New Year friends! I trust that you all had an enjoyable end to 2019 and start to 2020? Here is hoping that for each and everyone of you, this year will be the best one yet! That for you 2020 will be the year to mark all years, the year God does not stop showing off with you, and the year that there will be no drought when it comes to His blessings in your life and the lives of those you love. I know for sure that is something…

EVERYTHING IN GOD’S TIME

Gugu / 19 Dec, 2019

To say that 2019 has been A LOT would be an understatement. LOL. As I type this, I am quite aware of the ‘irony’ (for lack of a better word) that’s contained in this statement. Why do I say this? Well, it’s because I believe that this was my exact sentiment about 2018 at round about this time of the year then. Really, it was A LOT. If I recall, I was emotionally drained and defeated; I was feeling very, very stuck and uninspired, and just not sure what the big next/next big for my life should look like. Despite…

#PODCAST: DISCOVERING YOUR GOD-GIVEN PURPOSE (A LOW-KEY GUIDE)

Lulu / 27 Nov, 2019

So I know it’s been quite a drrryyyyy desert on here the past few weeks, and there really is no excuse, just a million apologies.

And if you will allow us to pick up where we left off, we have another podcast episode for you, one we hope you will enjoy, glean something from, answer questions you might have had or just find interesting. I know when I was thinking about what…

#PODCAST: AN HONEST DISCUSSION ABOUT GRIEF, PT. 2

Lulu / 30 Oct, 2019

If you haven’t already please listen to the first part of this podcast episode, where Gugu and her friend Fungai talk honestly and openly about what it is to grieve and deal with all the emotions that come with it. As a. refresher for those who may not have had a chance to listen yet, Gugu’s friend Fungai sadly lost her mother to cancer in July this year, and we are so thankful that even though it is all still very fresh, she has bravely and generously shared the emotions she has gone through (and is still going through) in…
