"..., is there someone else?"
Me: No, just the dream of someone else.

The one for me hasn't quite found me yet but I can only imagine how I would feel, because it will be ordained by God, I won't have to question it or be unsure because he will be ready.
He will honor me and he will love me and I will do the same for him. I don't want perfection because I know it doesn't exist, I desire willingness and a heart that knows exactly what he wants, unafraid to pursue me and unashamed to LOVE me openly. Until then I will continue to do what I know I must do and not question or wonder about when my time will be. It is already written, we just have to continue walking our path towards our destiny.

"..just for tonight
let me pretend
we are so much more
& tangled bed sheets are possible
& holding hands won't knot you
& we could steal a little time from the hour glass
& teach fate a few lessons
& give everyone the middle finger on our way out."

"Be focus in life and get what you feel you deserve. You deserve to have a fulfilling career and if you cannot match that with a man who deserves you, then you shouldn't try to, it will come."

"You ruin your life by letting your past govern it. It is common for certain things in life to happen to you. There will be heartbreak, confusion, days where you feel like you aren't special or purposeful. There are moments that will stay with you, words that will stick. You cannot let these define you – they were simply moments, they were simply words. If you allow for every negative event in your life to outline how you view yourself, you will view the world around you negatively. You will miss out on opportunities because you didn't get that promotion five years ago, convincing yourself that you were stupid. You will miss out on affection because you assumed your past love left you because you weren't good enough, and now you don’t believe the man or the woman who urges you to believe you are. This is a cyclic, self-fulfilling prophecy. If you don’t allow yourself to move past what happened, what was said, what was felt, you will look at your future with that lens, and nothing will be able to breach that judgment. You will keep on justifying, reliving, and fueling a perception that shouldn't have existed in the first place."

You took that knowledge, and you ran with it; as well as my heart.
I can now understand why you needed it, since you never had one in the first place.
I'm still hopeless and because of you, a little more heartless." Megan Lawrence
I want to help you fight for your dreams, and see them come to life.
I want to be there for you, when it all seems too much.
I want to be the voice that reminds you of the hope.
I want to make you smile and laugh, to experience joy every day.
I want to be real with you, to open myself and lay down my armor.
I want quiet nights, filled with sweet nothings.
I want days filled with you, and I want to continue seeing you, in your weakest or in your strongest,
I want to be there with you."

Receiving public recognition for a job well done, fuels my passion even further. Here is an article from The Namibian Newspaper, about the Emerge Fashion Show I part took in, last year.
Namibia's talented crop of fashion designers showed their creative prowess as they showcased showstopper after showstopper at the first ever Emerge Fashion Show. Held at the Franco Namibian Cultural Centre (FNCC), the event was truly spectacular, with the settings for the ramp, lighting and all other logistics running smoother than a well oiled engine.
With Windhoek's fash pack coming out in full force to witness the event, no time was wasted in showing them what their favourite designers have been up to for the year.
First up on the list was Chakirra Claasen, whose collection was made up of her signature couture garments in warm colours and textures. She drew inspiration from the Namibian landscape for this collection, which she plans to build on for a future fashion show.
Upcoming designers like Jaimee-Lee Diergaardt were also a force to reckon with. Diergaardt stunned the crowd with bright, colourful, happy pieces. Her take on the ball gown is very lively, with a splash of colour and unusual cut-outs.
Other up-and-comers equally shone. Leah Misika's line is reminiscent of 40s Hollywood glamour, with tassles that render flirty movement on her very modern garments. If you were expecting anything earthy from Lafika Joyce Heita this time around, you were in for a surprise. The multitasking designer opted for blue hues when it came to her trademark way of adding her own colour to the textiles she uses..."

A flower picked to soon.
Never allowed to blossom, never allowed to fully bloom.
Picked before her time, a flower so delicate, so pure.
Stolen from our meadow, starved of the love needed.
No more will we see her petals of absolute beauty that only her heart could hold.
