Nocturnal Wenchy

African Hips Don't Lie

Don’t let others ride your unicorn. #Wenchytude #JoziGem #InnerSelfie

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,


I was told to tone *ME* down by someone I truly admired and respected. Who I am,  was simply not okay! Too much.  Too big.  Too loud.  Too opinionated.  Too everything.

I was devastated.  I did for awhile  work on my personality “flaw”.  So desperate I was for this one person (out if millions of people in the world! ) to give me their hashtag of approval!

After many months and days of second guessing myself, even apologising…. a little run through litteral lawn sprayers with my niece,  and godchild Tayla-Jade,  I came to the conclusion that others can turn themselves *UP* if they felt my drum was drowning their beat. 

Turns out other people like my beat just dandy and more importantly,  and more importantly so did I!

I grew on so many levels since.  Personally,  professionally,  emotionally… physically. It was confirmed. Opinions are indeed like assholes… YES, everyone has one!

Today,  I simply care much less about a multitude of opinions. Be who you can face at 3am, when your  demons run rampant.

Too much of a good thing is just wonderful darling!

I wish you a run through sprayers as the sun sets with someone you adore.

  1. This reminds me of that poem by Marianne Williamson “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…your playing small doesn’t serve the word… and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same..,”

  2. Beautiful! You are perfectly you.


  3. So strange that you let one comment affect you that much!
    We know we shouldn’t let it matters as much, but it does!
    Glad you decided not to tone down!
    You are perfectly You! (As Dr Seuss would say)


    1. Unfortunately it was about six months of comments…. Scary how much we want to fit in sometimes.


  4. So true and so relevant to the journey you are on right now!

    Dont ever forget just how awesome you are.

    I love you!
