Seize the Day

2019 is here and to my utmost surprise, I find myself calm and very rational about things.

Equipped with new notebooks and stationery, I set out to be more practical with how I plan this year. The state of mind I choose to have in 2019 is not to think of it so much as new but more like progress. After reviewing my 2018 goals, I created an Annual ‘Road Map’, something I picked up from Monash which, in school is basically a diagram of the week and each day’s goal. My variation has space for about 5 targets to be clearly described for each month. It’s also helped me set some financial goals, like say for example taking a trip to Cape Town in April during the Easter holidays.

Curiously, besides wanting to get a new lens and tripod,Β the one thing I couldn’t see how it plays out in the future was this space..

I could think of a few reasons why; like maybe how I feel that I haven’t established myself in the blogging world. That one time I got nominated for Best Travel Blogger in 2017 was long time back. I’m not popular, and most times I’m happy with the privacy but other times I wonder if anyone really knows of my work. As a creative, progress is so important to me, so many at times it feels like I don’t know what I’m doing or where I’m going with it but I do know it brings me so much joy. It keeps me creative, having to learn new things, techniques, discover new places, discover myself. Become more, and do more. I religiously read each month’s Conde Naste Traveller magazine, cover to cover, and delve deep into the exquisite text and images. It transports me to another world, and I hope that is what this space can be for my readers.

These wonderful photos were taken by SLR Photos SA who reached out to me to collaborate on a street style photoshoot. I suggested The Marc as the venue, it has become one of my favourite places to hang out, with quiet coffee shops and restaurants in the heart of Sandton.

Go show them some love on their Facebook and Instagram pages @SLRPhotoSA, and while your at it find my social media handles at @pilgrimchic on Instagram and Facebook.

Let’s seize the day!
