Positivity and Fearless Authenticity!

Positivity and Fearless Authenticity!

Hi my lovely darling readers!!

I recently read the follow up to The Monk Who Sold His FerrariThe Secret Letters of the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, and I couldn’t put it down! Needless to say, I recommend it. I don’t intent to regurgitate the storyline. Instead I want to talk about a few of the lessons Robin Sharma so poignantly describes in this gem of a book, because they couldn’t be more relevant!

As I delve further into blogging, and explore the journey of building my own brand, my voice, and ultimately becoming a ‘real’ blogger I can attest to all of the 9 lessons the book seeks to teach us. It doesn’t matter where you currently are in your life the lessons shared are meant to put you on your own individual path to happiness. Not everyone will have a rich cousin to send them around the world in search of enlightenment, but it makes for a good story, and reading this book will get you one step closer to repatriating your mind with fresh, unique, feel-good-because-I’m-awesome ideas.

I too like to look good (who doesn’t?) but looking good is equivalent to feeling good, and I feel good in clothes that represent me. I love colours and patterns, and mixing all things fun. I’m not whack (or at least I don’t think?) but I certainly don’t shy away from unique combos. Read more
