Appreciation

On this beautiful autumn Saturday morning in South Africa, 28 May 2022 my heart is filled with appreciation towards the beauty of people and our beautiful country, after I travelled to the Magaliesburg region yesterday. 

I am ready to step into the next season of my life, it is now time to test the title of John C. Maxwell’s book “Put your Dream to the Test”.  

When I spoke to a very dear friend this morning who followed his heart 15 years’ ago to go to France (one of my favourite places in the world) to learn, how to become the best French pastry chef and in my humble opinion, is today the absolute best French pastry chef in Johannesburg told me this morning: “Always follow your heart!”

He shared the quote of Mary Ann Evans who was born in Warwickshire in 1819, a clever child with a voracious appetite for reading (like me!).  She adopted her better known male pseudonym George Eliot when George Henry Lewes – the English philosopher and critic with whom she was romantically involved – encouraged her to take up writing fiction.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)
