Gut vs Self-doubt

Every person on mother earth has experienced this two opposing binaries. The self doubt on the days when you feel like you’re setting the bar too high, but the guts come as a result of knowing there’s something in your belly that can take you THERE.

The self doubt when you make a step and half way through whispers of why you started, who do you think you are, when will you finish etc occupy your mind. The faint voice of the guts stirs up in you reminds you there is no winning without worries, no success without hurdles and certainly no conquer has never felt the urge to give up!

The guts remind me once more what you started shall predictably come to fruition. Just trust the process, just trust the timing!

The Herbal Girl

Photographer shot her, framed her

And hung her on a wall

A definite wall she belonged

The herbal girl I knew

Dress ankle length, blouse long sleeved

Hair always kempt, natural scent her way

Manipulation left and right

The spirit of ccomradeship

The antennae of relationship

Double dealing and sponsorship on weekends

Democratic party she relished

Life was proportional to her mind width

Pressures of life no more

Church and night clubs she claimed all

Her dress her choice, her make ups her artificial colour

Liberal party was her life

Dozens of men she kept close

Wisdom and counsel at bay

Short cuts become long cuts

When the painful truth surfaces

One of her many men his wife stalked her

Long cuts and deep wounds she sustained

Death was beckoning her but for a

Passers-by intervention

Then one many man like a photographer

After shooting her

Framed her and hung her on a wall

She was now the herbal girl

In a labour party

I have seen

I have seen once a sane

Turning to be insane

Once a glamorous grooming lad

Becoming and be called mad

Once a soft-spoken las

Changing sour like South African Maas

I have seen once a handsome

Mutating and getting quarrelsome

Once a stunning beautiful

Transforming to a killer fearful

Movements become revelations


Dance of destinies

Keep your watch and watch your steps

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
