Well I am back…. It’s been quite a roller coaster ride for me since October 2015. But I am in a good place now.
Over the past few weeks I started editing photo’s of the last holiday my Mother went with us. Must admit I still get very emotional when I work on the photo’s. Miss her so much but I know she is watching over me every single day.
Here are just a few of the over 4000 photo’s I took on our trip to Pilanesberg Nature Reserve in July 2015. Believe me there is still allot on it’s way.
Yes Ruby is still in love with her sticks and upgraded to palm leaves. She enjoyed playing with the sticks and Palm leaves while my dad and I cleaned out our garden. She still enjoys playing with her ball but due to all the new dogs in our street I cannot go play with her out front. Now we must play in the garden and that is not so good on the grass. I also started taking her to the beach, but after a dog attacked her on one of our walks she is not very sociable. It will take a while for her to trust other dogs again… She is also very protective over me. I am not always sure if this is a good or bad thing….
After my mother’s passing and the start of my divorce proceedings I have not really been in the mood to blog and take photo’s. I had my moments when I got my spark back but then something would remind me of something that happened and I am back to square one. It was like everything was getting to much and I went into survival mode. I started focusing on myself, the boys, my dad and our home.
In the meanwhile my Canon 7D’s Dial button broke and I lost my AV and TV settings then the light sensor started giving me problems and that put extra stress on me… As soon as I move into a dark area or shady area the camera will not focus at all and when I press the shutter button nothing happend. I had to switch the camera off and on after every photo taken. When I was in bright light I had no problems… I had a few shoots over the past few months and with God’s help everything went smoothly. I learned a very big lesson that you must trust in God and ask Him to bless the shoot and to please make sure that everything works… He did not disappoint me… I am happy to say that God was looking out for me and a week ago I upgraded to my Canon 7D Mark II.
Over the next few weeks I will be posting all my work done in 2015 and hopefully I’ll be up to date soon.
Never lie to someone who trusts you, and never trust someone who lies to you.
This is something that lies very close to my heart. Being lied to by my so called best friend for how many years. I trusted her with my deepest secrets just to find out she had a hidden agenda and pretended to be my friend…
A happy life consists not in the absence but in the mastery of hardships.
This is very true. I have found in my own life I had two choices. I can either sit behind my knees and mope (I tried this for a while with not so good results) or I can take what is happening and use it to help me grow and move forward. I promise you this is not easy but it’s the best way. Yes you will get your up and downs, you’re happy and sad days, the days you wish you never met the people involved in your situation but remember there were good times also….
If we really want to love, we must learn how to forgive.
Good day everyone,
I know I have not been posting lately, but my life took a very unexpected turn. Now I must learn how to forgive and move on with my life. It is not easy but I know with the help of my Heavenly Father I’ll be able to move forward and live my life to the fullest in His name.
One of my New Year’s resolutions is to remove all the negative out of my life. I have been busy doing just that. May everybody have a very positive 2016.
“There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under my jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I read and eat and study. I can choose how I’m going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life – whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts.”
