About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

A good head and a good heart

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (Madiba) once said that a good head and a good heart are a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.

Many a times and many a people have mentioned to me that I have the knack for writing and many a times I also have a knack for talking, speaking sometimes even "twisting".

I have always had this desire to write a book, I still need to be inspired to do so.

If you ask me what the book will be about, I will say, "I have no idea yet. It could be about nothing and it could be about everything. It could be about food and it could be about love. It could be fiction or non-fiction. It could be about travels or it could be about sitting at home and writing blogs."

Or it could be about all of the above. It could be about everything.

But one thing is for sure, it will not be epic 1000 plus pages of nonsense.

It will not be nonsense because everything I have done before has been mostly with a good head and a good heart.

But that is still not good enough. Not good enough because it is mostly.

I will do everything with a good head and a good heart. Everything that I say, I write, I do will be done with a good head and a good heart and without any malicious intent.

It will be truthful and I know people say the truth hurts ... honestly, it should not hurt because the truth will set you free.

I will not be malicious in my intents and I will not be hurtful in my intents.

However, if one is hurt in the process, remember that it was done with a good head and a good heart and find it sometime in your life to forgive.

Trust, Accept, Believe and Forgive. Love.

I will trust. I will accept. I will believe. And I will forgive.

And most of all, I will Love.

Madiba also said that no one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate. If they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

It is easy to hate, despise but that is cowardly. To love always, you need to be brave.

I am in this world for a purpose, not a selfish purpose, not a prophetic purpose, but a good purpose.

I want to appeal to the hearts not the mind nor the intellect of people.

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."

To appeal to the heart, I will speak the universal language, Love.

My head and my heart will be filled with love.

Take care and be well.

Well said but just as much that hate needs lots of practising, so does love and some have really forgotten how to do and seeking to do so.......
