December Captured







Hello great people. I took out the Capturing December Challenge this month and it was a great challenge, (I'm glad that I took it though). If you guys know more challenges that one can take up, please halla at your girl. It is five hours before a new year 2015 and I'm just at home with my sisters and we are about to have a braai (barbecue). 

2014 was a year to try something new and the new thing was blogging, I have enjoyed it. Blogging is something that I will be doing more of in 2015. I would like to thank you all for your support in my journey this year and being with me and my family through all the challenges that we had. 
So if you too are making some changes in your life in the coming year, have faith and everything will work out how it's supposed to. 
Work hard, love hard and play hard. 
I wish you all a happy New Year.

Spiritual Sunday - What A Year ...

Good morning guys. Looking back at the first post that I had in June of this year and what I'm currently posting now, I can say that I have found my writing style and I hope to stay with it and improve on it in the new coming year. My Year has been filled with great love and I would like to thank everyone that was with me through it all the good and the bad P.S. attendance was taken. 
Here's to a great new year! I'm looking forward to what 2015 has in store! 
Happy New Year Everyone!
 Lots of Love,
Zanele Mondi 


“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one...just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had.” 

“The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings.” 

“Gratitude means to recognize the good in your life, be thankful for whatever you have, some people may not even have one of those things you consider precious to you (love, family, friends etc). Each day give thanks for the gift of life.You are blessed” 
― Pablo

“It's better to find success through God, than finding it on one's own merits; some who usually find their own success become boastful, where through God it's with gratitude.” 


“Appreciate your mom. She is wiser than you think and stronger than you know. Be thankful.” 

“Be grateful for the life of those who mass up challenges on the paths to your fulfillment. At least they taught you self-defense!” 

“For my success I am immensely grateful to God, my parents, my family, my friends, my teachers and to the books I read.” 

“It doesn't matter how many friends I have because my best friend is God. And, he is a Super Friend. People come and people go, but God's love for you will remain the same. Embrace it, Cherish it, and Spread it everywhere you go. Let your light shine brightly for all the world to see.” 

“The grass may not be softer later, and it may be brown tomorrow, but at least it's not lava.” 

“Forever, I will be thankful that, even if for a fleeting moment, I felt what it was like to have been loved by the most beautiful man I will ever know.”
