Blogger Recognition Award



What is the Blogger Recognition Award?

As Bloggers, we all know the value of words. Blogging requires a lot of dedication and we would most likely give up without the support of our readers and fellow bloggers. This award serves to expose new bloggers to new readers and welcome them to a truly awesome community.

How did my blog start?

I had dabbled with blogging before as in I created the blog but never actually stuck with it. I was working some pretty crazy hours and that pretty much took up most of my time. One night my best friend Michele just casually mentioned blogging and advised me to give it a go again. It was really on a whim. I was not sure what I even wanted to talk about so I wrote my first post in May and here I am a few months later still writing.  I  would say this is one of the best things I have ever done as I never really realised how much I missed having an outlet for creative expression.

Advice to new bloggers

Do not compare yourself or your work to other bloggers. There may be others who write about the same things that you do but as they say, no one can do you like you can. This creative space is big enough for all of us. So whatever you have to share with the world just do it. Be as authentic as possible.
Blogging is like a work of art. It takes time and dedication to build something beautiful. Try to concentrate on creating instead of focusing too much on your views. It is also a good idea to connect with fellow bloggers the support and advice they offer will be indispensable on your blogging journey.


Here are my nominees :

Thanks again for the nomination and I want to also commend my fellow bloggers for all of their hard work. 

An Intriguing Stranger

An Intriguing stranger 2


An intriguing stranger
Witty and charming
His words were like a cerebral perfume
They stimulated her mind and not just her senses
Buzzed, giddy, high off of sweet nothings
He held the trigger that pushed all her buttons
Mere minutes turned into hours as he transported her to galaxies unimagined
Their souls ignited like twin flames
Surrendering, she knew this slick tongued devil would be the cause of her undoing

Progress not perfection I think that is the way to go in life
You can plan as much as you want but without  execution, it is similar to trying to fly the tail and not the kite
There will never be the right moment sometimes the pieces of the puzzle
never fit in this life
Inspired, feeling inspired? 

Just act, don’t let fear make you worry about imaginary consequences
Launch that ship of ideas and keep sailing forward
Ride the wave of your creative juices
How will you ever achieve what you want if you don’t make a move? 
Wade through the stagnant waters into  unknown territories
Contentment never comes from being stuck, failure only comes when you stop trying.

An invisible thread
Separate yet connected
Random strikes of lightning
Is it fate or just coincidence?
Aren’t they really just the same thing?
It may not happen when you want but it is always right on time
Visualise to materialise
Utilise the power of your mind
You have the key to unlock  the door to the life you have always wanted
Tiny miracles, serendipities are a reminder that you are safe and loved 
Tune your intuition to those hidden messages
Let the lessons  contribute to your growth, give good karma 
Have faith and trust the process.

It is rarely ever the fairy tale that you  imagined
Sometimes faith is the only thread holding you together
Battling ogres, confronted by giants and wrestling with demons
You do your best to overcome them
Battered and bruised you  manage to find some solace in the chaos
Run through the gauntlet and yet you are still alive
Focused, determined despite all of the setbacks
Knocked down but  you  clawed your way up countless times
You have an unquenchable thirst for success
Delayed but never denied
The highway of dreams  is rarely ever paved with gold
Stronger: the obstacles have given you a metal resolve
Don’t quit no matter what is thrown at you
Face those  challenges knowing one day you will thrive!

What is your favourite outdoor activity?

Walking, running playing at the beach. I like collecting shells and building sand castles (well trying to). Being at the beach helps clear my mind and make me appreciate the simple things in life.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

Well, I can’t drive I think that automatically makes me a passenger. I honestly enjoy being driven everywhere. That may be a bit of laziness on my part. 


If you could have three wishes granted to you alone, what would they be?

To see without glasses
A week with no chores whatsoever
To travel for free

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Well, to be honest, I was not feeling quite inspired this week. I appreciate the fact that I got to take a nap and relax on Sunday. A nap feels like winning the lottery when you have a toddler.

Intelligent Life

A Primped And Pampered Mind A Poem By Bajezen.Blog 1 (1).png


”Is there any intelligent life out there?” She asked as she grew weary of life on this planet
Modern life has become one tiring polluted mess
We work ourselves to the bone just to die from stress
To what end ?
Chasing the material is a never-ending race, try as you might you may never gain at the same pace as your neighbor 
It is not a competition because the finish line never ends
Everyday we are bombarded with a plethora  of new trends
Things and attention have become the new oxygen
We need money, oh yes we need money but really must we be oppressed to get it?
You take the loaf and give me the crumbs
Perpetrating suffering
How do you sleep at night knowing your fellow-man is in crisis
Angry,  no wonder everyone is so angry
Anger that is fueled by a nuclear  fear
While our leaders play Russian roulette with our fate
A pissing match to see whose balls are biggest
Idiotic, devoid of common sense
I need a compass .. Point me to where the intelligent life is.

A Primped And Pampered Mind



A Primped And Pampered Mind A Poem By Bajezen.Blog 1.png

Lazy Sunday
A day I can call mine
Perhaps a mani-pedi, a facial, a little sprucing up
We all want to look to look good and take care of our bodies 
Do you also pamper your mind?
Clear out the clutter of past mistakes
Wipe off that foundation that hides your layers of pain
Detox the resentment and self-loathing
Exfoliate all the wants, the yearning for what has gone and what may never come
Paint the present, make   it a kaleidoscope 
Full of color, vibrant
Meditate, relish in the warmth of your breath
Express gratitude even for the most mundane things in life  
Moisturize your consciousness  with positive thoughts so you can radiate good vibes
Take some moments for self-reflection
Analyse what makes you tick
Slough off the dead skinned demons   
Jump start your mind with   a well-needed massage

Take  journey to your soul 
Relax, rejuvenate, recharge, worry less and forgive 
Experience the true wealth of a primped and pampered mind

And never forget to live!
