‘n Skrywer in wording

Onder die mensdom is daar menige mense met die talente om skrywers te word . Talente word binne ons gebore en ons almal is eintlik skrywers. Die skommeling van die regte stelling , die prikkeling van ‘n ander se gedagtegang en sy belangstelling.

As skrywer of wordend soek ek in ons direkte omgewing na die nodige inspirasie en verwag dat dinge om ons moet gebeur sodat die gebeure omskep kan word in woorde wat ons dan kan neerpen.

‘n Blog of website is die alternatiewe manier om kort gebeure en gedagtes neer te pen vir ander om te lees. Die besoeker , indien hy ge-inspireer word deur die artikel se reaksie kan baie beteken . Indien hy dit nie as ‘n inspirasie vir homself beskou nie dan loop hierdie skrywe se uitwerking net dood . Hou hy van wat hy lees kan tot gevolg he dat hy dit gaan oorvertel of verwys na sy vriendekring wat dan tot ‘n kettingreaksie gaan veroorsaak . Meer mense gaan dan inteken wat die website bekend gaan maak . Kommentaar help ook om die skrywer beter te laat verstaan wat sy lesers wil sien , hoe hulle voel oor die gesprekke en die leesstof. Dit help ook om meer inspirasie vir die skrywer te gee vir opvolg of nuwe skrywes.

Die taal afrikaans is vir menigte van ons so ‘n geheimpie want ons gebruiker raak al hoe minder en begin ook baie verengels . web forum kan ook aan die skrywers bystaan met die uitsoek van nuwe onderwerpe en tendense in ons samelewing. Hulle beskik ook oor die talent om hulle eie nuwe woordes en gesegdes te skep wat uniek is aan hulle skryfstukke

Ek nooi ieder en elk uit om kommentaar te lewer op hierdie skrywe. Deel ook u verwagteninge , stel idees van onderwerpe voor of gebruik net hierdie forum om te gesels . Ons beweeg weg van mekaar deur middel van immigrasie en werksverpligtinge . Kom ons bring alle afrikaans sprekende mense binne en buite Suid- Afrika om hier saam te gesels en weer net onsself te wees

I am strong, because I know my weakness

 I am beautiful because I am aware of my flaws

 I am Fearless, because I learn to recognize, illusion from real 

 I am wise because I learn from my Mistakes 

 I am a lover because I have felt Hate I can laugh because I have some sadness

Some Motivational 1 liners

This is the only life you have, so reach out with both hands, grab it and embrace it! The love that is lacking from your life is the love that you are failing to bring to it.” Why do we close our eyes when we pray, cry, kiss, and dream? Because the most beautiful things in life are not seen but felt only by heart. I wish we were less concerned about money and how we look and more interested in being truly happy and healthy If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of payments I hate when people judge others by their looks! I am me and that's what I want others to get to know...not because I look a certain way "If someone truly wants you, nothing will keep them away. They will do everything they can just to be with you." Sometimes you just need to distance yourself from people. If they care, they'll notice. If they don't, you know where you stand "Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were." ""Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony" "A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends." Gents don't make a woman your world, make her your atmosphere and she will make you her world!" Sometimes people don't notice the things we do for them until we stop doing them You know what's wrong with the word SORRY? It gives people the wrong idea that any mistake can be solved by a single word! "Don't loose the one you love over the one you like, as the one you like will leave you for the one they love" Deur al die moeilike tye..........moet ons net dankbaar wees vir alles wat ons het, en nie as vanselfsprekend beskou! Everything happens for a reason. But sometimes the reason is that you’re stupid and you make bad decisions Whatever you do, good or bad, people will always have something negative to say I am strong, because I know my weakness I am beautiful because I am aware of my flaws I am Fearless, because I learn to recognize, illusion from real I am wise because I learn from my Mistakes I am a lover because I have felt Hate I can laugh because I have some sadness Sometimes you just got to accept that some people can only be in your Heart, not in your Life A perfect relationship = two people never giving up on each other Don’t expect things to happen. It’s better to feel surprised than to feel disappointed

What does 2013 have in store for us?

With the New Year a few weeks old we all tend to think and guess what the year 2013 hold for us. Maybe now it’s the time to re-look our goals and objectives. Every new year we start of with new years resolutions. We start on a positive note but after a month or two some of our resolution has been broken and our response is normally that we would try again next year But let’s say this year is the last of our life. How objective would our goals, objectives or resolutions be. Would our mindset now change? Would we be more realistic in our goals? Do we have the power and the ability to reach our goals? Don’t we just set up goals because everyone told us to have goals in our life? Do we measure the worth of our goals, is it something we can do, and is it realistic, do we work hard and smart to reach our goals. We tend to lead a life of not caring for the day of tomorrow , are we just waiting to die or do we have measures in place to treat today as if it is the last day or year of our life . Do we want to prove to others that we can reach our goals? Share with others your goals in life or the year ahead and allow them to measure you against your goals. Would this measure then enable us to work harder towards our goals and objective? Let your friends be the judges of your goals and you are the judge of their goals. Isn’t competition better than just competing on your own? Think about it and set up good and solid goals for your life this year

Demis Roussos concert 15 December 2012

A tribute to a great singer.

 Last in South Africa 37 years ago but brought back this year by Frans Swart from Lefra Productions, to perform live to his millions of supporters here.  I was there to watch this amazing spectacular show that took place on 15 December in the Liqui-Fruit amphitheatre in Paarl. An experience that I have to share with the rest of South Africa

Driving from George we arrived at the amphitheatre at 15H00 .Several people was already waiting in the heat and soon everybody was sitting in the closest shady spot and picnicking , chatting and greeting each other. A friendly and spontaneous atmosphere hung in the air. Gates opened at 17h30 and the crowds moved into the theater environment. Soon all the embankments around the theatre were full of awaiting theater goers drinking wines, refreshments and socializing. Friendly people in their ages (not much young people – they don’t enjoy pure good music) gathering around and waiting in anticipation for the start of the concert. The organizers have gone to great length to make this evening a memorable well organized event.

Then it is 20H00 – Everybody seated and waiting for the appearance. The last lighting preparations are underway and then the big moment arrived. The “Greek god” is to appear on stage. The band members were on stage already. Then came a shock to me. I completely forgot that Demis Roussos is well in his sixties and not much had been heard from this singer over the years. Demis was “escorted” onto the stage and placed on a chair in front of his microphone. A silence was felt in the stadium momentarily but when the master started to sing and talk all of these shockwave disappeared and anticipation of a great show filled the air. With an obvious sickness state of Demis Roussos he made up with his enthuisiastic performance and singing ability . He still had control over the crowd and people were singing along and still continue idiolising him for his voice and personality . At this moment my image of him as a legend changed from legend to LEGEND OF THE LEGENDS. He inspires us with his performance and his ability and dedication to his music . At his age still to take on a world tour makes him more than a legend , in fact one of the biggest stars in music. We were treated to his old songs, Italian opera songs; Sing along songs, Greek dance music and just his voice of excellence that filled the theatre and the ecstasy of the crowd. People were dancing and singing along and in this two hour show the crowd was joined together, forgot about their problems and was joined as one person.

This show was an eye opener for me. I forgot how good his voice and music was. Secondly I forgot about how grateful I must be. I have no sickness; I am 54 years old and complaints about every small little thing that happens in my life. I felt so ashamed. Here on stage was man well in his sixties, maybe more sick than I can be and still had the guts to pack and do a world tour because his fans would like to see him again. He is again a hero in my eyes and I wish Demis Roussos every of the best in his career and hope we don’t have to wait another 37 years to see him.
