Don’t Wait Till It’s Too Late

Sometimes, we do not know what we have until it’s gone. I truly believe we should never live our lives with any regrets because you cannot take back your actions, your words or the past. Having said that, there are so many things we wish we had said, or done differently when disaster strikes but it’s often too late. For myself, I wish I had done things differently with a friend of mine called Jennifer. She was a really close friend who wanted to be a photographer but she said the professional course was too expensive for her and she …

Learning To Go With The Flow

We are all familiar with the expression “Be careful of what you wish for” but why the air of caution? It is because our thoughts seem to have this unnerving ability to attract what we unconsciously believe in, deep within ourselves. This is why it’s vital to be making decisions that come from love and strength, rather than fear and weakness. For instance, if you want something so badly in life, or you want it too much, you are already in a state of fear that something will be taken from you. This fear of loss in itself can result …

Controlling the ‘wild horses’ of emotions

  One of the first emcee jobs of my career was to launch a brand new edition of one of the world’s most sought after luxury cars. I remember walking out of that briefing room more than 15 years ago looking ‘completely together’ with a cool, professional smile still plastered on my face but my heart was racing, my stomach was doing some crazy somersaults and my palms were probably clammy. I was completely terrified!   The worst part was, unlike a sports player or athlete who could immediately hit the field and start training for it, you can’t really …

First Trip to India

I found it fascinating that so many people who have visited India all told me varying degrees of the same thing. They said it’s a country of harsh extremes and that you will either love it or hate it, but you’ll be sure to take something away with you, whether it’s a lesson in gratitude or simply a different way of seeing the world. I couldn’t have agreed more. One of the first people I saw when my hotel car stopped at a traffic light was a well-dressed gentleman in a suit waiting to cross the road. Crouched on the …

For the love of Bali…

There’s several trains of thought on where to go for a short holiday and I think it depends on the sort of mood that you’re in. A few weekends back, I was trying to decide whether I wanted to go somewhere new that I’d never been to before or somewhere familiar where I would just have a lazy weekend without feeling the pressure or need to explore any attractions because I had visited them all before. In the end, I decided to have one of those relaxing, restorative weekends to escape the constant rat-race where you’re more inclined to enjoy …

The Price Women Pay For Beauty

THROUGHOUT the ages, women have gone to great lengths and subjected themselves to various forms of “torture” in the name of beauty. In the 10th century, the custom of binding women’s feet in China was a culture practised for almost a thousand years until it was finally outlawed in 1949. Just thinking about the process makes me wince. It involved forcibly breaking the arches of the feet when a girl was between the ages of four and seven. To enable the size of the feet to be reduced, the toes were curled under the soles and then pressed down with …
