For Ridi, Muslim,Taoist, Fighter,Friend

June is a month that has been overshadowed by death and grieving and Ramadaan
As I start coming to terms with my moms passing which has been a carnival ride on its own. 

I search inwards and question upwards. A very good friend Ridwan called me when he heard the news and offered words of comfort as I knew her birthday was coming up on the 2nd of July. He spoke me off an emotional ledge that Sunday night and helped me cope. Nothing prepared me for the phone call on that 2nd July my moms 69th birthday, from Ridi's colleagues to tell me that he succumbed to a heart attack on that very day. Allah grant him Jannah, he was an amazing man and I will sorely miss his counsel and witty remarks about life. We had a pact, that if by 2015 neither of us were married, we would marry each other. There was so much of him I saw in myself. and I will honour his memory by trying to be the woman he saw in me

you are following your river
it flows freely when you untangle
and the hard times become good times
the duality of life
Aasia Fredericks
yin and yang
we have because at time we are without
won't know up
if there is no down
the balance is treating both the same
the hard part is to do that
good and bad are just the same thing
being indifferent is the hard part

You are a kind human being
Keep pressing the good fight
It is worth it all

100 Healthy Days Challenge

2014  was going to be the year I reinvented myself, and seems it still is.
After getting really ill last year and being diagnosed with diabetes I embarked on a plan to change my life and get unstuck.

while I have been eating better and getting exercising more, I needed a challenge something to push me and scare me.

So a friend decided maybe I should enter the impi challenge but how do I get from where I am now to a 12km obstacle race in October?
