Lost Soul


"My head is an out of order jumble my mind is like an African jungle amidst all this confusion and despair
Is a chance to get some air
As i breath in the rejuvenating scents of nature
I get a whiff of something different something manly and mature"

A little something I've been working on. It's not complete yet, so stay tuned for more.

Light and delicious

Tonight I got pampered by being served this delicious light stir fry dinner.

Ingredients:

Potatoes, peeled and chopped
Mushrooms, sliced
Peppers, sliced with the seeds removed
Onion, finely sliced
A few sprigs of fresh Parsley, finely chopped
Spices to flavour
Peach Chutney to flavour
Oil
Tomato, chopped
Salt
Various Ground Peppercorns

Method:

Potato mash; Boil your potatoes until soft, season with salt, chopped parsley, ground peppercorns, drain any excess water, mash until you get a consistency you like, set aside.

Stir fry; Heat your oil in a pan, add your onions and saute until soft, add the rest of your chopped veggies, season with ground peppercorns, and spices,  reduce the heat and let the pot simmer for 10 minutes, add a teaspoon of chutney, stir and simmer for 5 more minutes.

Serve the stir fry on your bed of mash, top with a sprig of parsley as a garnish and enjoy.

Self love is the best love.

From when I was young, people made fun of me. I was always the odd one out. When I was younger I was "too thin", in my teenage years I was " too fat". People were never satisfied. This made it hard for me to love myself as I am, but I never wished I looked like everyone.
I refused to let people who were mean or ignorant bring me down. I realised that I had to love myself and stop feeling bad or insecure over what people thought about me. 
I wasn’t always confident. I was shy and scared to make friends. 
I became confident when I started pursuing art. I made friends who accepted me for who I am. Even though they didn’t have the same body image issues as me, some of them used to struggle with their confidence and had a hard time accepting their looks. They made me feel accepted. I also got to realise that every girl is unique and that we all have our own insecurities...even the smartest or most beautiful girl you know doesn’t always feel confident. 
Now when I see a girl who is a little shy, or teased for well, being human,  I always encourage them to get a support structure. Love and accept yourself as you are, we are all beautiful in our own way. 
How do you deal with self confidence issues?
