Hey fambam,

Just to clarify I will be back, but I’m on the last leg of my University journey and I need to stay focus and enjoy it while it last.

I won’t lie to you all, I’m beyond stressed, tired and going through all sorts of emotions… but I’ll get through it.

All I ask for is your prayers x

To all the final year students, you can do it!

Love,

Ness xx

Rising | The sunset reflection

” A sunset is the sun’s fiery kiss to the night.”

Sunsets have always been my thing. I love it, the different colours blending together and the mood it brings, it’s just therapeutic in my opinion.

Seeing the sunset gives a constant beautiful reminder to appreciate every single blessing day. The sunset gives an every day opportunity to reflect on: life, accomplishment, etc while the sun fades away, how therapeutic can it get?

During my time in el español, I was on the balcony of my hotel and saw the sunset and was like wow, isn’t this stunning, gorgeous, sesssssssxxxxyyyyy . I wanted to actually go to the beach to soak it in, but I got it from my balcony instead just in case I missed it lol.

Am I too ugly to be loved? | [ PART 2 ]

 

foodies' appendix.png

We often look on the outside of ourselves to get validation and opinions of others. But, the thing is, we don’t need others to tell us we are beautiful – it is our duty to know that we are beautiful within. We can’t get the validation from someone is pursuing you or comparing yourself to other people in society, because at the end of the day – society view is always changing.

” society view of beauty is always changing ”

People always give the power away ( including myself)  of how they feel by external factors, but we have to keep the power and it needs to come from within. One thing I struggled with as a younger teen was the fact that not everyone would think you are ‘beautiful’ because of this and that, this was a constant factor of my self-esteem, you would never catch me calling myself beautiful, or when I did get compliments, I would cringe and change the subject.


I AM BEAUTIFUL – because I say so, not because social media tells me so, or tom, dick and harry, NO! I am beautiful because of who I am and what I think about myself.

Sometimes, I feel like we are so dissatisfied with ourselves, that it begins to show within our actions, face, and character.   The way we walk around, our facial expressions begin to change < not giving off a good vibe >  | In this sense perhaps it’s not the way we look, but the vibe we tend to bring out that may not be attractive. 

Copy of foodies' appendix

What I realise is, people, can see confidence from a mile away, someone who is secure about who they are – confidence generally shines from within.

I have come to the conclusion that it is not all about looks that individuals base their decisions on, maybe, just maybe, its to do with your insecurities, some people may not want to take on that baggage plus you and your insecurities because it may damage you further and your relationship!

So if you haven’t read my previous post on Pain and bruises // Self-reflection, one of the things I said is really useful for working on your character and helps with insecurities is self-reflecting.


Let’s just be mindful for a minute, if you are going into a relationship looking to get validation or fill a void and feel like in order to feel a sense of self-worth,  please DON’T !!!! That’s a huge error! – You are just going to feel more lonely and disappointed than ever before because you put your faith in that person to feel a void or for validation.

Love yourself, see the way God sees you. Don’t compare yourself to the standards of the world < although it may be difficult > Don’t look externally for affirmation because it will only get worse.

you are beautiful: you are handsome xx

love Ness,

BREATHE | Poetry  – am I to ugly to be loved [ PART 1 ]
First and foremost, I’ll like to thank everyone for the love and support and the different opportunities that are coming my way, I love you xx
With that being said – Welcome back 🙂 how are you doing?
__
Back in the day, I used to write poems;  poems that will come straight from my dome… I’ll write when I’m bored, happy, sad etc and I’ll send to them to friends and my crush at the time lol!! I would say writing poems helped me express how I felt at the particular time.

The last poem I wrote was in 2015.

The majority of people knew I wrote poems, just for fun. I never did spoken word, but I’ll always listen to it. I don’t really have the ‘voice’ in my opinion to execute my poems, but I’ll happily write them lol.

Here is a recent poem created called ‘Breathe’

breathe
P.S. Yes, I was down and upset when I wrote it. But, let me know what you think.

BREATHE – Transcript 
Inhale: Exhale
Breathe.
I’m governed by modern society views of…
beauty
How I should react to certain situations that conform my views.
I often wonder.. why
Why, do I.. sigh
inhale: exhale
tick…tock
that never stops ticking,
with the constant click, from past to the present
breathe.
I find myself here…
page after page.. after page
Hearts on fire
Exposing parts unseen
Beneath the surfaces
inhale>exhale
but still, like the sun,
I’ll rise.
breathe.

I went to Gaucho which is situated in the 02 for one of my amigo’s birthday. My overall first experience was moderately good. The service was outstanding, was greeted nicely and shown our table (on the third floor). Pricing wise, it is not a cheap place to eat so its a special occasion kind of place. Loved the decor, the buzz, the attention to detail, the intimate atmosphere and overall experience was unique.
