Who are you not to think highly of yourself? … By Sharon Itumeleng Bosii

Romans 12 states “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you”

When I look at this scripture, I used to think that I shouldn’t think highly of myself, really I thought so! It took some rereading the scripture and thinking thoroughly about what Paul meant when he wrote this…man Paul is a deep man. Read the rest of this entry »

Why I Raised my Hands When Goku Asked For Energy

Sangoku_by_Haseo_57

“when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“Remember that the Spirit Ball is a martial arts discipline that allows you to borrow energy from grass and trees, from people and animals, from inanimate objects and the atmosphere… And then to concentrate them and release them. If you can draw so much destructive power from a ball made on this small planet… …Imagine what you can do with a Spirit Ball formed on Earth! If you can also learn to tap into the astounding powers of the Sun… Well. Just be careful. Or you may destroy the very planet you’re trying to protect!”

I figured since there’s seven Dragon Balls, I might as well write and publish this on the seventh day. Two things remain clear, if your girl knows nothing about Dragon Ball Z, she is too young for you bro. The second being, if you have never watched and gotten addicted to the fictional series then your childhood was bluntly boring. I was addicted, I know most of you were. I swear by the time SABC 2 stopped airing the series I had collected 6 dragon balls and I was only 1 ball shy of asking the mighty dragon to grant me my ultimate childhood wish…… #BringbackdragonballZ Read the rest of this entry »

A Question Of Existence… By Avela Sidaki

c1979a4e34f911e3b3af22000a1fb856_6

“men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: Will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?” Troy 2004 (film)

Hi, my name is Avela and I’m saved. Is it not ironic that in a predominantly Christian society I can lose all my “cool” points in 33 characters? We have become a huge group of genetic Christians. I mean think about it, my moms went to this church and her moms before it and well I am a Christian coz I went to Sunday school and stuff, I don’t know much about dad coz he just could not miss the Rothman’s Cup/ league game “maybe next time….”. But is this what it’s about? Are we who we are because of what we do/ did? Are we who we are because of our inheritance? Put a pin on that. Read the rest of this entry »

When Life Throws You Potholes.. Just Swerve… By Pamela Kunene

dv617062...“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time”

Every year we start by reminiscing about our memories, reflecting on the past 12 months and looking forward to the resolutions we made.

Every morning, I always try to set my mind to the right direction, think positively, control my emotions, think of something to be grateful for etc. and I go and anticipate great things. Read the rest of this entry »

Say Hello To The Good Old Me … By Moshibudi Thatego madia

SAY HELLO TO THE GOOD OLD YOU.

With every new thing, plans to sustain it have to be made, just like moving from one year to the next. The blessed transition into 2015 is one that is followed by bucket loads of resolutions.

In my younger years, having New Year’s resolutions was important; even though I really didn’t understand how binding they were I continued to make them, so that I’d have something to say when I get asked:”what’s your new year’s resolution?” But with age, time and faulty; uncompleted resolutions, comes wisdom. I genuinely feel like I’ve come up with the solution to the pressure of resolution making. The answer is that we are not perfect, therefore we can’t set perfect resolutions, we need to come to a point where we realize that resolutions aren’t the gauge to measure how successful we’ve been in that year, but rather they are a way of encouraging goal setting.
