I'm only human..

Hello Fam

 Feels o-so-good to be sharing with you once more and as I promised last week, I'm just gonna share with you one my favorite hospice shops in  Grahamstown and one that is the closest to my heart. I remember a chat I had with  my sister just a while ago one that touched on the basics of humanity,we were talking about how you don't greet someone because you know them but because
" umntu engumntu" (a human being IS a human being). From that little chat I decided that I refuse to just stand by, complain about the condition that our world is in ,look at my sisters roaming the streets of Hillbrow with disgust or just giving looks of empathy at my little brothers and sisters occupying the street corners with cracked lips and yet do NOTHING! I ALONE REFUSE! That is when I decided that everything I was going to do from there on was not only gonna build me but those around me as well.

Hence this post, those of you in Grahamstown might know the Sunflower Hospice shop in Burthust Street which has timeless items at very and I mean VERY affordable prices. One of my fav items are from there and last week I decided to not only take but to give back. I donated a bag of clothes and shoes to the hospice which gives support to patients with life threatening illnesses and their families.Truth is not all of us can donate clothes or books to hospices but what ever is God-given to you is always ENOUGH be it your time, your ear and just a hug and a smile sometimes!I love love..this might sound silly but I believe love is life..If there are any questions, pain or even doubt in our lives LOVE be it God, the universe or humanity is always there to give all the answers. 

one of the first things you see when you enter..

 just too cute!

Burthust Street! pop in sometime!

There isn't enough darkness  in the universe to extinguish the light from one small candle..

word of appreciation

one of fav items are from the over sized cardy?

I started thrifting as a hobbie from  my  love for all things old  and  vintage  but also  because collecting them is cost-efficient but now it has grown into something beyond! Not only is thrifting affordable but its also eco-friendly as it is clothes recycling meaning when buying second hand items you're reducing your carbon footprint. What I've learnt that sometimes to give back you don't have to  step out of your comfort zone you can simply do what you love but also loving others at the same time!
