Be the one who makes yourself smile

Congratulations, you’re alive.

then I don’t know what is.”

Ask yourself, what makes you smile?

Hey there beautiful person,

I have a question for you …

How many times do you rely on external sources or people to make you happy? Hmmmm, maybe a bit too much? I do know that one way to figure that out is if you are completely alone. No phone, no laptop, no people, just you and you alone.

Being confined in a space of silence where you can only hear yourself breathing is quite hard for many people. This may be TMI, but I find that the shower is that place for me. After a workout, there is nothing better than letting the water run over your body. I have associated cleansing process of how I cleanse my mind as well.

Allowing yourself to face a challenge mentally is something only you can do. Connecting it with emotion (tears, crying and just letting go) takes courage. I know that once you become so use to something and it becomes a habit, it’s hard to re-learn how to find your feet. Whether you are giving up smoking, overcoming a death in your family (I’ve been struggling with this for months), or dealing with separation anxiety, it all comes down to acceptance.

There is no happiness in life without acceptance. There is no true happiness if you cannot be honest with yourself – Sumia Levy

There are many days I lay and question why God took away my grandmother so suddenly. I think about why I am the way I am, I question why I am my worst self critic? Why do I become a victim of people’s cruelty? Why do I not let the world see me, the vulnerable me. Maybe these answers require my own introspection, and that’s the point. It’s an inside job.

Being happy has nothing to do with others, because you cannot enjoy life if you depend on someone else to make you feel complete, to rely on materialistic things to make you feel superior than others, to allow your weakness to make you feel inferior.

Happiness is an inside job. Be the one who makes yourself happy. You come first in YOUR life.

Then only … can you bring happiness to the world and others

Sincerely Sue

Introducing Picodi: An Online Lifestyle Change

Hello my lovelies.

So as you all know, I am someone who always tries to assist people in improving their lives. As a hard working mom and wife, I know that money does not grow on trees (I cannot believe I am saying what my mom used to say). Life can be pretty expensive, the one moment you think you are all good financially and then something unexpected happens. At the end of last year, my car broke. Let’s not even go there, it was the worst timing. So I ended up paying for repairs, and holiday shopping had to be cut in half. Meaning I had to sacrifice the beauty essentials that I planned to buy. It happens with so many people I know, so I also know that because of life’s unexpected expenses, we need to find the best possible way to save on every purchase. We have all done the “Mental calculations” as we passed certain items in the store, but that is all about to change.

What if I told you that a new International brand called Picodi has entered the South African market? Picodi is the newest web’s most comprehensive coupon database in South Africa. This means, as an online shopper you can use eCoupons to save money and even get free delivery for a certain product or category.

Who is Picodi?

Picodi is a coupon group, and the leading online coupon provider in Poland, Norway and Turkey. Picodi.co.za provides South African online shoppers with free online promotions and vouchers to help them save money when shopping online. This means you can save by buying a certain item from the safety of your home, phone or office. Does this excite you? I know that when there’s a special on Makeup, Home items or Clothes, I get super excited.

Using Picodi to improve your Lifestyle

You basically go to their website and find the latest promotional codes and vouchers to your favourite South African online stores; such as Game Kalahari Makro Spree Woolworths Zando and many more.

So how do you save online by using online coupons? In my honest opinion, by doing the math, you save time by driving to a store, taking time to find the product you need, purchase it, and then drive home? That in itself costs you time and money.

Ladies, these are specials that caught my eye:

MAC Makeup is a favourite for many women in SA on suelevy.co.za
