I remember two moments in my life when I had to start over after I lost it all (which felt like losing it all at the time)

When we go through something new whether traumatic or stange, something that feels overwhelming, that makes you question life – we tend to feel like we failed or you question God like I did and say “Why Me?” “Why is it soooo hard”, but those are the precious moments that sets us up for our destiny.

So these two moments I had, changed my life and how I view life, and gave me the guts to go in the direction I am in today, and No I am not saying you need something traumatic to find direction, but in my case I was redirected from my “perfect plan” I had for my life – Into creating the show A Walk with Mel, Career as Actress and most importantly forced me to stand on my own. So today I am grateful to God for allowing those moments. It moulded me in ways I never thought is possible. It taught me to spread my wings and trust the process. To do things for the right reasons and not to give up on my dreams. To be grateful to for the small things/moments and not take anything for granted.

And ofcourse I couldn’t do anything without God…..

Welcome to my Blog, A space I will be sharing my thoughts, some experiences and some reviews on the show etc.

May 2021 be a positive year for us all, no matter whats happening in the world, please keep your head up and don’t lose hope. Your life has purpose.
