1990 is as far back in the past as 2050 is in the future. When I saw that it had me thinking about how much “living” I’ve experienced over the past 3 decades and how much more there could be over the next 3 decades.
I see 10 quite distinct phases of my life since January 1990. They’re pretty much a function of where I was living/working at the time. Each phase shift brought new people into my life and took some away. Each phase meant a shift in focus. Sometimes a major shift, sometimes not so major. Most of all, each phase created some amazing memories.
I spent the past two weeks on a business trip to New York and was super blessed to have been able to catch up with people that represented 3 of those past phases. From Dan and Tom, who were part of the ‘Woolvo’ phase that was coming to an end in 1990, to Dawit a player and influencer in the mid-90’s, ‘Surrey uni’ phase and Nadia, one of the crowd of friends that adopted me into their circle in the 2005-2008 ‘early South Africa’ phase.
Always such fun reliving great memories with the players of one’s past, but there’s also something special about contributing to each other’s present and future. That unique perspective that comes from having a shared past is of immeasurable value especially as it helps us remain grounded in, and gain strength from, who we have always been.
I don’t know how many phases the next 3 decades will bring, but I’m looking forward to reconnecting with people like Dan, Tom, Dawit and Nadia along the way. Reliving old memories, creating new ones, always “living” and always contributing.
Belated Happy New Year everyone. #oldfriends#sharedhistories#livinglife

Travel. Explore. Live. Eurotrip 2018 #livinglife#adventure#summervibes#gopro#efultimatebreak ———————————— Here is a short video of my Europe Trip that I went on back in 2018. Swipe through to see it all! It was full of the most unforgettable moments of my life. I have posted pictures in the past, though this video shows a better snapshot of the incredible adventures we experienced!
We visited 4 countries, and more than 12 cities. The countries and cities shown in the video:
Verdon Gorge, Italy
Vernaza - Cinque Terre, Italy
Shout out to Devin Chaganis for helping edit this video for me! It came together perfectly! I have been trying to put together a video for awhile, but kept having trouble with my laptop handling the editing. If you need any photos or videos taken/edited Devin is the guy to reach out to!

Quando o tema é decorar com arte, não precisamente se trata de comprar peças caras. Muitas pessoas acreditam que para consumir arte é preciso gastar muito dinheiro e não é assim. Existem muitas opções se você gosta de consumir arte, somente deve ficar atento! Catar objetos em feiras de antiguidades, leilões de arte ou adquirir algum objeto numa viagem ou mesmo na casa da vô 😁. Sempre funciona!

Are you tired of the stressfullness of childcare!? With costs going up and care having limited spots and limited qualified people whom you truly trust!! 😲
Which is why I am looking for 4 moms who are fed up with paying so much for childcare, who would much rather stay home with their littles instead of the crazy overwhelming schedule of the 8-5. ❗
4 moms who would rather make their own schedule; make their own money doing work from the comfort of their home then don't wait another moment. 🤓
Shoot me a message, share this with a friend, lets discuss the deets babes 👌
Do you place a high value on your talents, your time, your capabilities, and your opportunities?🤔 If so, congratulations. But if you’ve acquired the insidious habit of devaluing your time, your work, or yourself, it’s now time for a change.
Pearl Bailey correctly observed, “the first and worst of all frauds is to cheat one’s self. All sin is easy after that.”
If you’ve been squandering opportunities or selling yourself short, it’s time to rethink the way that you think about yourself and your opportunities 🧠 No one can seize the opportunities for you, and no one can build up your self-confidence if you are unwilling to believe it yourself. So if you’ve been talking yourself down, stop 🛑 You deserve better❣️ And if you don’t give yourself healthy respect, who will? #adailywalkthroughpsalmsforwomen#lovejesus#herbalife#beautifulandblessed#healthylife#livinglife

“More snow pleeeease 🥺.” It’s safe to say Squishy is absolutely loving the snow. This Ohio native didn’t waste any time jumping into the icy fun of the PNW. Watching him zoom and pounce around like a brindle tornado makes me overwhelmingly happy. This squeezable nugget’s zest for life reminds me to find joy in the smallest things... Even all the mud he tracked in the house after his romp tonight ❤️. .
