…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…

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…

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…

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. Life has just been happening too quickly and all at once that we kind of just lost the plot a bit over there, but we are still here! 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…

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…

We’re back with another podcast episode this week. I’m excited for this one, but not because the topic of conversation is a particularly fun one, because as you can tell from the title, it’s in fact pretty heavy, but I’m excited because the format this week is a little different. As we mentioned before, some of the podcasts will be brought to you as usual by both Gugu and I sharing on our previous posts, or specific topics of interest to us, but doing so in conversation with other female minds and voices with much to impart. This one is…

I just want to start off with a tiny little confession, this blog post may or may not be [read: is] about 80% plagiarised. I’ll explain. The title for starters; as perfect as it is, and you will see why in a moment, I didn’t come up with it myself. I saw a devotion with the same title on the Bible App, and like I said it was so fitting for what I want to talk about today, so I stole it. Then comes the actual content of the blog; here is where Turn It In would absolutely embarrass me.…

Gugu / 2 Oct, 2019

Recently, there has been much talk and animated discussion on South African social media about the seemingly ubiquitous and embedded violence within our society. Important links between the violence of South African history and the kind of violence we witness in crime in general and the brutality/misogyny of gender relations in this country, have been made. Essentially, we are a country with a deadly brutal history, spanning back 300+ years in our history. Colonialism is violent. It is an erasure of the identity of another; it is dispossession of not just the habitat but the self, the beliefs, and the…

#PODCAST: Journeying Through Forgiveness

Lulu / 25 Sep, 2019

We’re back with another podcast episode! We know these were quite popular last time, and we appreciate you guys for your feedback, support and encouragement of them, which is why we decided to bring them back and more of them this time. So, you can catch us on the airwaves (look at me trying to make us sound fancy) once a month from now on. YAY! To begin, we thought we’d look at one of the most challenging but also raw posts written on the blog this year. A blog written by Gugu on forgiveness/unforgiveness. If you’d like a bit…
