The Glow Switch
Being a modern woman, we switch between a multitude of different roles on any given day. I have found a running theme in my life which is the glow… it’s the glow of the little temperature light on the oven when I’m cooking something delicious, it’s the glow of pride watching your children play and grow. It’s the flame of passion when you’re achieving your goals in doing something that you love. The slow burning fire of love. The bonfire you gather around with good friends and a glass of wine.
When you feel like everything has become too much, it’s the soft glow of the embers in your heart that help you keep going. It’s everywhere you go… everywhere you glow.
Stories are everywhere. Everyone has a story. My goal is to tell stories that inspire, that fuel flames of fun and adventure, shining a light of positivity, living a glowing life!

I have always thought of myself as an eternal optimist. Being an introvert, my facial expressions may not always exhibit my optimism accurately but I promise you, it glows brightly there on the inside. I choose to focus on the positive, not reading the doom […]
This is a post I wrote a while ago, about the day my 5 year old ran out of the house in nothing but socks. I thought I would be exposing myself as the world’s worst mom but instead, got so many virtual high fives […]
Glowing from the inside out – anti aging just got better I’m a woman of a certain age and a mother who spends plenty of time in the sun, watching sport. I am only 21, but then again I have been 21 for the last […]
2012 was an extraordinary year… It was the year in which I bought my own car for the first time. It snowed in August. 2012 was a year of unprecedented music concerts for us in Johannesburg, with incredible shows by U2, Coldplay, Linkin Park and […]
