Good Day, Beautiful People!

Today, I’m sharing something close to my heart. Is hard not to get involve in whatever way for this cause as I lost a few loved ones, friends and pastors through different cancers over the years. As believers, we can bring faith, hope, love, joy and practical help into every situation. “I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will.” -Edward Everett Hale. We can’t do everything but together we can all do something.

It is not too late to get involved, attend or host a McGrath Foundation or cancer council pink ribbon day fundraiser, a morning tea, a girls’ night in or an event to create breast cancer and other gynaecological cancers awareness. Fundraising to bring medical research, contributing vital support and prevention programmes. You can do it small or big, at your own home, your workplace, school, church and local community event. Everyday, 50 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and other gynaecological cancers in Australia. Pretty sure is not a small number around the globe. I dare says, we all know someone in our circle (self, family, friends, neighbours, school moms or colleagues) who are diagnosed.

Spread love and kindness in your circle or even outside your circle, pray for the sick and family, visit the sick, make a meal, send flowers, a card of encouragement, call or message them to show you care. For those who follow earlier and remember one of my beautiful and brave friend, Nezz, is an overcomer. She is in remission and currently pregnant! Praise God!

Good Day, Beautiful People!

Life is full of ups and down, not always smooth. We can all wish life is like a bed of roses. Granted that you are in this life journey sooner or later you will face challenges.  Not many can escape from relationship, financial, health, emotional, addiction, crisis and ultimately mortality. Sometime, it takes some drastic drama happen to us either to our loved ones or friends for us to be awaken from our stupor. At that instant, we have to make a decision to crumble or to fight. I hope we choose to be brave and live with intention and purpose. You may choose to think this will never happen to me so I can choose to live life carelessly and frivolously have nobody to answer to. Actually, you are right. That is the freedom of choice. Although that is true, why wait till crisis happen then make a choice when you can do it now. Search your heart, ask yourself are you living your life purposefully toward your destiny.

Trust me, is not everyday, 12th of May 2014, I wake up to a brave and beautiful friend, Nerralea Van Der Merwe featured on news by the work of another super creative and marvellous friend, Kym Thomson.
It is incredible to see Nezz rises up and refuses to give up attitude. Beyond doubt, Nezz’s faith, conviction, people who love her like family and friends, church and support groups has make her an overcomer and not a victim of cancer. Nezz is not the only person I know that went through this cancer journey. You know who you are. I will not mention your names here without your permission. Thank you for being brave and navigate this path so well.

Of course, I am very proud of my friends’ achievement and will continue to cheer them on! Beside, I am a bit jaded by reading all the negativity, bad news most of the time. I find it refreshing and inspiring to read good news, news that bring hope. Nevertheless, the reason I am sharing this story is I know that there are people out there who need to know there is hope in the darkness. Folks who are still in the midst of their storm need to focus on Jesus, your captain, keep declaring health, and  look far away at the horizon.

Believe in your future self. Don’t be push by your problems. Be led by your dreams.

Isn’t this a good reminder for most of us as young and older women need to embrace our bodies. Regardless what the world says about your body. You are beautiful because you are created in the image of your Creator.

She is a dreamer, a doer, a thinker. She sees possibility everywhere.

Look at the beautiful and amazing Nezz now, trim and fit!

I leave you with this thought. The living word states: “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” -Matt 19:26
