2020 South Africa ~ Embrace your inner Lion

Hello Beautiful People!

This month we are still in the countdown to the end of the lockdown and would like to inspire you toward some great things to do to embrace life and stay positive and focused. 

We researched a list of things to do during the lockdown and ongoing improvement of our mindset, health and income. 

Please let us stand together in helping and protecting those with compromised economical situations and immune systems and do so with magnanimous equanimity. 

This too shall pass. Let’s stay positive, helpful, and a part of the solution. It is the perfect time to do Random Acts Of Kindness to yourself and others. 

As always, we celebrate some of the excellence of the innovative and resourceful endeavours of South Africans who set a positive tone for our beloved rainbow nation. With or without total freedom of movement, we rock on!

 For Comic Relief – Look at some of the funniest Covid Masks  and Corona Virus Outfits and then let’s move on to some interesting things to live for. 

And if you are tired of the faces of your ‘inmates’, make this soothing cucumber gel mask as a disguising Love Mask. You can thank me later.

Instead of giving in to the discombobulation of this period,
let’s embrace the Lion within!
Calm, Playful, Powerful.
