FEEL IT, TO HEAL IT

Lulu / 8 May, 2019

Maybe it’s just me, and please do correct me if I’m wrong, but these days it seems like people just don’t want to feel their feelings anymore. Bad feelings; they run away from, good feelings; they are so afraid of losing, that they prevent themselves from even feeling them at all. It’s like feelings have become this thing that people take pride in not having or want to protect themselves from. Personally, I know that struggle. Due to some unforeseen circumstances and things not happening the way I thought they would over the last couple of years (I won’t get into…

WHAT IS GOOD ENOUGH?

Lulu / 24 Apr, 2019

So because we are among friends here, I have a confession to make: I have writers block. I know this is not what you clicked on this post to read, and that’s my bad. But I promise this is not clickbait, there is an eventual point to this. But, before we get to that, I really felt I needed to share my bad case of writers block with the group. Maybe I should actually use this as a disclaimer to what follows; you know, just in case. But in the spirit of honesty, I just thought I’d let you know…

AIMING AT NOTHING

Lulu / 10 Apr, 2019

I was having a conversation with Gugu the other day and naturally our conversation shifted to faith; (if you had a chance to listen to our podcast series, you’ll know that faith is something we talk together about A LOT, and thank God for faith sisters because whew chile, the journey is rough!) and the conversation basically led to where we each stand faith wise at the moment. When it comes to her I think she’s pretty much laid it out for you in her recent posts about where she is, where she isn’t and where she is going —…

WHAT DO YOU HAVE

Lulu / 27 Mar, 2019

Recently at church, one of our pastors was preaching about the story in 2 Kings 4:1-7 which has fast become one of my favourite stories in the bible. It’s called The widow’s olive oil. The story is about a woman who recently lost her husband and he left her with quite a few debts. She has no money and no way to pay the debts so the debt collectors want to take her two children away. So she goes to Elisha desperately asking for his help. He asks her what she has in her house, to which she replies nothing…

We Need To Fix It.

Lulu / 13 Mar, 2019

Linda, listen, honey. Today’s post might not be something you’re used to from me— mainly because this may be a quick one, but also because it will be quite a ranty one too. I know I tend to rant sometimes, so maybe that one isn’t too far off from what you’re used to, but this time I don’t think I have a positive spin on things, or much of a silver lining… there just exists a problem and we need to fix it. So here it is: International Women’s Day was just the other day, and you won’t believe the…

TO BE OR NOT TO BE: AN OPTIMIST

Lulu / 27 Feb, 2019

I was watching one of my friends live videos on Instagram the other night. She usually has these “after dark” talks about topics that are 18+ related, and for the first time, I was up late enough to catch one. Without getting into too much detail about what she was talking about seeing as though these aren’t the hours, I will just say what I left the conversation with, and that is how important the power of the tongue is. Now this isn’t anything new, the Bible speaks a lot on this, that basically life and death is in the…

LET’S TALK ABOUT SELF-LOVE

Lulu / 13 Feb, 2019

I have to admit, for the longest time I have kinda had a problem with this whole self-love thing. Before we get lost in translation, let me explain: everybody should absolutely, without fail love themselves, it is beyond necessary, especially in the world we live in today. There is so much going on that we always push ourselves to the bottom of our priority list. Speaking as a woman (and this was mentioned in one of our August womanhood series posts last year) most of us have this superwoman syndrome, we always feel like we have people and things to…

MINIMALISM IS

Lulu / 30 Jan, 2019

For the past couple of years I’ve been trying to live a more minimalist life, but I have to admit, I’ve been failing quite dismally at it. Well… when I say minimalist I do mean it in every sense of the word, where I basically remove things that aren’t truly important from my life so I can focus on the things that increase my joy. I decided to lean towards minimalism because I had come to a point (about four years ago) where I felt like I was carrying too much. I felt like I was being weighed down by a…

WE ARE GOING UP

Lulu / 17 Jan, 2019

I would first like to apologize for how late this post was uploaded, without going in to too much detail, I will just say: I live in Zimbabwe. And if you’ve seen, heard, smelt what’s been happening around these parts lately you know exactly what those four words mean, and you know that for awhile there we had absolutely no access to the internet. To top it off I also didn’t have electricity for close to 5 days. So you can imagine, no electricity plus an internet shutdown makes for a very hard posting of a blog. But I’m here.…

Thank You, Next

Lulu / 12 Dec, 2018

It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the end of another year. Last I checked we were in April, now all of a sudden Christmas decorations are going up everywhere. It makes no sense. Where did all the other months go? Not that I’m complaining, I’m kinda glad this year is coming to an end. It hasn’t been the worst year by any means but, I think somebody left it outside a little too long and now it’s getting eaten by termites. Things just seem to be getting worse as the months go by and I think we’re…
