It’s an entire New Decade.
Which means a clean slate, new beginnings, new opportunities and endless possibilities.
Do you remember the hype of entering the 2000’s?
Y2K and such?
I remember, I just completed high school, it was Parte after Parte after Parte (that is such an annoying song) and on New Year’s Eve when I planned to attend the real Parte, my mother grounded me, and I slept into the year 2000.
The only word that comes to mind when I think of 2019 is ROUGH.
There is possibly no other word I can use to describe my 2019.
Hell, I am typing this with two toddlers running around me, playing police police.
The last time I wrote, I mentioned that I will not be taking any leave over the holidays, well, that has changed and now I am typing this with my pajamas on at midday.
I will be headed to the beach later to do the proper ‘’coasting’’ thing.
I plan on spending all my free time roasting in the sun that is if the weather allows it of course.
Thank God for small mercies.
I took part in the top nine of 2019 that was going around and caused quite a frenzy on social media and my top nine pictures of 2019 are the following, so let’s see if I remember what made them so momentous?
- Picture 1:
Taken at my old workplace in Walvis Bay.
I am dressed in traditional odelela at a work function earlier this year, I got so much comments on this image, I guess this picture really displays my entire personality in one go, and it was appreciated by those who know the real me. Wink Wink.
- Picture 2:
Picture taken outside my church after a confirmation service.
Proudly dressed in a dress I designed for myself and made by a local tailor, whilst attending my niece’s confirmation. I suppose the dress was the most likeable thing of this image.
- Picture 3:
Image taken back home before attending the biggest spiritual event of my life in 2019, recently.
On the picture with me, is the love of my life, dressed to a T. Enough Said.
- Picture 4:
Picture taken also back home on the morning of my son’s 5th bday in September 2019. Mind you I travelled 400km with that themed cake and was almost in a horrific car crash, but the cake survived with a mere bump, still it brought that huge smile to a little person’s face. Bump and all.
- Picture 5:
Picture taken in Botswana, whilst I attended a local wedding. Frizzy hair and all, I was content, as the picture depicts.
- Picture 6:
Day 1 after giving birth 5yrs ago. Picture taken whilst we were recovering in hospital. By the look I am giving the little person, you can tell that it was a magical moment.
- Picture 7:
Image taken back home of the birthday boy again and his batman cake! This time I think the dimples won the crowd over?
- Picture 8:
Picture taken by my personal trainer at the gym, whilst hammering the sled! Painful days, yet I inspired masses.
- Picture 9:
Picture taken on a weekend getaway to celebrate my 38th Chapter. Once again, pure bliss painted all over my facial expression.
Light and Love
