TAKE TIME OFF SOCIAL MEDIA!

For those who know me, you would know how social media is a part of what I do. I decided to take a few days off social media to recuperate, reflect and have me time. I want to tell you that social media isn’t running away from you. No matter how many posts you see on a daily basis, you will not be behind on anything, as long as you discipline your mind well.

There needs to be balance in everything we do; if we constantly partake in the same routine, we will only achieve the same results. Taking time off what you are used to is good for your mind to rest. It is refreshing to do different activities. I take time off social media to regain focus and plan for the future. When things seem overwhelming, I wouldn’t recommend using social media as a way to ease the pain; this will only increase it.

Depending on how your mindset is positioned, for me, I thank God He has helped me to develop self-control, to know what I need to take into account and what I don’t need to take into account. This takes time, so please do not put yourself under any pressure if you are influenced so quickly.

My question to you is: what purpose is social media providing that makes you a better person? Is it just to compare yourself to others and secretly put yourself down behind the scenes? Or, are you trying to avoid someone to ‘secure your insecurities?’ Do not let these be so, and don’t give any of them room in your life. These are emotions talking and they aren’t always accurate. Taking time off social media is meant to be for healthy purposes; not just to avoid people or the hype.

You are valuable and for those that use social media, use it wisely because someone’s life could be inspired by what you post. Don’t post out of boredom or to show off. Your intentions speak louder than your mouth does. Be humble. Be kind. Serve. Make someone else’s day and focus on your lane. Social media is not the ultimate goal. It is a resource that is used every second. Remember who the source is: God. Don’t allow social media to break you into pieces. It is good to take a break. Remember this. You are not missing out on anything!

You are loved ❤

NEW ADDITION TO THE FAMILY | BOOK LAUNCH 2019 | BOOK SIGNING

 

I am honoured to announce that I have written a third book: From Glory to Glory and can be purchased on my website and Amazon. This book is a real, raw and transparent read that will enable to reflect on your own life and understand the purpose behind why you are here. I keep saying to all readers that they have purpose. YOU have purpose; I have purpose. You are not a mistake and someone is expecting a breakthrough from all the pain you have encountered.

The journey of writing is not an easy one, I tell you. It takes a lot of separation, thinking, reflection, focus and determination to be consistent but I decided to carry on with it.

Since 2016 when I launched my first book, I enjoyed writing about how I felt, how my day went and what I learnt. I like to write in a way that inspires, convicts and informs readers that it is okay not to be okay. We are living in a generation where we want everything to look and be perfect, but it is okay for it to crumble and fall apart; when situations don’t look clear, it is a sure sign that it will get better. Your situation will not last forever; just allow life to keep doing what its doing.

A book launch will be held on Saturday 27th July 2019. More information can be found on this link.

If you are also interested in learning how to write a book, click on this link for more information on how to enrol. It is a great way to get your story heard and learn the process of writing a book from start to finish.

 

Someone needs to hear what you have been through in order to be set free.

 

Remember: you are not alone in this journey called life!

It’s Okay Not To Be Okay

Why do we put so much pressure on ourselves each time we wake up and see a new day?

What causes us to become so discontent with what we have that causes bitterness in our hearts towards others?

How do we use what we go through to inspire and create a platform to voice out and help others in need?

What kind of solution are you going to create to help those who are about to give up?

I will keep saying this; IT IS OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY. I don’t always have it together and I don’t worry about it because the more you worry, the more it will affect your health. Please note this. It is fine to have your plans wrecked, it is okay not to have everything under your control. There are always logical reasons behind this. I remember a time my friend had an interview and was late for around 5/6 minutes. My friend did not get the job. My friend then applied for the same job but closer to home and finally received the job. My friends concern was how am I going to survive without having a job, not realising that ‘distance’ was not taken into account and this is what at times we take for granted.

We want something so badly that we rush the process and apply for anything; however we have not calculated the consequences (the length of journey) in this case to even consider if we will make it ‘on time’. Please know that when a rejection letter comes, it is not them rejecting you; it is them rejecting your ‘potential lateness’. Do not write yourself off and feel you don’t add value. Only someone who is not breathing doesn’t add value. You are alive and well reading this post so believe when I say you will be okay.

It is okay not to have everything together; Rome was not built in a day, neither can we expect our lives to be the way we want it to be in one day. It is a process that we must not forfeit and keep going until the victory is won. Some days will be harder but it will get better. You will smile again; you will laugh again; you will love again, but throughout the journey, learn something from it. Take it and use to your advantage.

You have a purpose; you are worthy and you matter. Don’t write yourself off just because someone else did. There are people who you know and don’t know that watch you whether it is through social media, videos or your website. Don’t hide yourself for fear of being judged. Let transparency speak for itself. People invest in those that are real and honest about what they go through. Don’t ‘pretend’. We have enough pretence in our generation that we NOW need truth and selflessness. Remember: it is okay not to be okay.

Love Esther.

Focus is the real MVP!

Focus is contagious. It does not involve how you feel towards what other people are doing. Focus is the most valued person in your life that wants to bring out the best in you. You are in control of your Destiny and what you want to achieve. Words are seeds; they can either grow or die. With focus being in the right place, it has to be utilised to the highest level of your well-being and mental state.

Be intentional on what you focus on, and put all effort into it because no one is responsible for your life apart from you. Focus keeps you content, thankful and ready to face what is ahead. It enables you to appreciate where you are and work on yourself. Life is a real journey with trials, however, there is also joy, peace and happiness that comes with it.

Focus is the goal. From a personal perspective, when my focus is on God, that is where life is orchestrated in such a profound way. I don’t need to worry about what I don’t have yet, or try to attain it in my own power. I honestly don’t have any power. I am human just like you. But what I do have is FOCUS! don’t lose it this year people! Please maintain a good standard of focus. Do not over think or overanalyse situations. It is okay to be imperfect. Our world perceives us to have everything at a demanding time, but how about allowing your circumstance to teach you a valuable lesson.

My hearts desire is to see many free from brokenness, fear, frustration and self-doubt. All these things I’ve experienced and I use this to encourage and strengthen you.

Let focus be the real Most Valuable Person in your life. Allow focus to keep going when it seems difficult to progress. We are all working in progresses. Until then, have a great Monday. Remember; gratitude says everything about your attitude.

The best is yet to come!

Can I be real with you? Patience is a real test of character, integrity and humility. Within the waiting process, you see how much growth has been added to your life, including your expectations. At times, you realise that what you desire becomes more stronger, but then, when panic kicks in, you are rest assured that it will come through.

There will be stages in our lives where we will question whether our hearts’ desires will really come to fruition. You look around and it seems that everyone’s needs are being met but yours. I am here to let you know that YOUR BEST IS YET TO COME! Do not give up on what you want to see happen in your life. When you are near to giving up, it is the moment that your prayers become answered.

I really want to encourage you to keep the Faith and hold on to what you want to see happen. Remember that it is your words that create your life, so watch how you speak and be consistent in your endeavours. Don’t be happy today then upset tomorrow. Strive to be positive all the time! Someone is looking up to you for strength, so don’t put your head down just because what you want didn’t come through.

You are reading this blog today so that is a true testament of what you desire being nearer than you think. It’s amazing how life works; what you give it, it will give itself back to you. Stand firm and be bold, and know that what is ahead of you awaits YOU!

You will get what you desire; every tear you cried is a strong sign that it is closer than you think!

Keep going!

With love,

Esther.

2018 – what a year! 2019, I AM READY FOR YOU!

It’s that time again where I choose December to be my month of reflection! oh, how I love December!

December is a time to ponder on the whole year and analyse the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

2018 for me, personally, has been a year of many achievements; being promoted in my previous position, having another annual event in July; The Big Debate, my first workshop for book writers in November, travelling to Dubai in July with my sister (which was not the plan to go this year, lol!), having a website for the business; Authentic Worth and other achievements that I am humbled by.

There have been moments where my Faith have been stretched and tested, but only for the better. Being able to put my big sister to rest was not the easiest, but has caused me to not only appreciate life, but to invest in mental and physical health, building strong friendships and relationships, living out my purpose and being intentional about the lives of others.

I have met authentic, real and kind people this year who I thought I’d never meet. People that have stood by me in the hard times, friends who have become sisters. It’s amazing how each year exposes you to new people, but also new levels, and in these levels, it really tests if you are willing to stand in the face of adversity. I can confidently say that I have passed the test. I have never experienced such an intense year as 2018. Lord knows!

A little progress leads to little successes! Yes, we here this statement all the time: ‘New Year, New Me’. But instead of saying it and not applying it, why not start planning your 2019 now! You don’t have to wait for Tuesday 01st January to arrive; you can start writing down your goals, aspirations, desires and TAKE ACTION! DO; don’t just say!

As I round-up, in as much as we have many accomplishments to fulfil in 2019, no matter how many that are written down in our journals, diaries, MAC’s, computers, remember that it is not possible accomplish them on your own.

Proverbs 16:3 emphasises that all our plans should be submitted to the Lord and He will guide us into what is the best route. Another strong advice is be SPECIFIC with your aspirations for 2019!

Be very honest with yourself; what is it that you are looking to achieve? It could be:

  • To be engaged
  • To get married
  • To buy a house
  • To leave full-time employment and start a small business with your partner
  • To be in ministry
  • To invest in healthy eating and positive thinking
  • To have regular workshops, masterclasses, online courses, events, conferences, seminars
  • To invest in self-development
  • To impact our generation with Christ’s teachings

What are your goals? SPEAK THEM INTO EXISTENCE! I’d like to know!

Fill your goals out the comment section below and I’ll reply you as soon as possible. More importantly, remember Matthew 6:33 – Seek Him first in all your desires!

For those that may not have had the best year, know that what caused you to cry is going to make you appreciate the year to come. As my dear sister is watching over me right now, I know that it is a strong sign that what is in 2019 will TRULY BLOW MY MIND!! I am looking forward to 2019! Are you?
