An Ordinary Girl On An Extraordinary Journey Through Life
Author: JoJo Bayvel
Welcome to my blog or journey through life. As a Digital Marketing Exec for 19yrs, my blog is about life outside the faux world of Social Media - it is about honesty, realness and an appeal to others that NO ONE has a perfect life, YET it can still be a perfectly happy life.
I write as often as possible but sometimes creativity escapes me and pictures or things I find along my journey, will have to do…I write from my heart & don't often check up on grammar for my own posts so grammar police .... mmm you know.
I am a tiny 5"3 girl next; an ordinary girl living an extraordinary life.
I am also an incredibly happy person (with the happy gene) but hey, we all have our issues; you will read about mine here, and if you need to chat drop me a line anytime email@example.com.
A little Bio on me
I am a 37 -going on 14 or 40- year old girl living in Cape Town and of course….limbo… am I on the shelf or do I want to actually marry? I am incredibly fussy & believe in fairytales and forever after. Been proposed to 3 times said no as I want an always love...
Typical Gemini…Princess & Tomboy!
Lady and loud, love marketing, art, fashion, sport, Jesus, travel & most of all helping others - it's what makes me heart smile.
I love comfort zones and adventure too? Crave travel, new people and places, never want to move?!?!?
Will always love animals, my family and friends – break-ups always result in me losing a dog!!!
Feisty, stubborn yet soft hearted with a pretty hard outer cover!
Crave love but bore easily… Want & adore kids and to be happily married but dread monotony. Need freedom, space, music and time to breathe but thrive on others company….♥”
Thank you so very much, for reading my posts & any part of my journey through life.
On nights when my heart is sore oh so sore, and the memories of you are so vivid – I thank God that I still have, and always will be able to hold onto those.
I so often lose my breath when I think of you, my first love, not being alive on earth – but Daddy I know you are so happy and in a much better place, looking down on us and guiding us, forever. Always my 911.
Pops, I was lucky 🍀 for 37 years to have you. Most don’t get that chance or a hero daddy like you.
My first love, though oh to dance with my father again.
“Our stories come from our lives and from the playwright’s pen, the mind of the actor, the roles we create, the artistry of life itself and the quest for peace.” – Maya Angelou
My favourite poet and an apt quote, Maya. In this pandemic when the playwrights pen seems to write in permanent ink worse news everyday.
When there seems to be no light in the darkness and we all feel as though we are drowning just below the surface of the water; unable to make that final pull to achieve that breath we so desperately need.
In these times of fear, trepidation, anxiety, panic. In this pandemic which has turned the world upside down and inside out.
We do all seek one thing, peace. Peace for ourselves, our loved ones. Peace for strangers losing family and friends daily.. minute by minute some by second.
It does feel as though we are actors on a stage. The play a horror story a nightmare that feels there will be no happy ending.
The only thing I can say during this time, if you have a loved one who is terribly ill. Who won’t recover and be the same.
If you are praying for a miracle, for healing, for life, for God to just restore your love.
Remember that sometimes that miracle, that healing and restoration is leaving this earth to spend forever with God. Healthy, happy and waiting for you to join them in eternity.
I know I should write more about my career, the products I use etc etc… but, my blog is not about that.
Perhaps it is a release from the everyday mundane world of work and beauty and striving to be ones best.
I like to think of it as a place where people in all walks of life can relate. Life is sometimes amazing and sometimes downright dismal.
I am blessed to have what some may call the “happy gene” but I must say Covid and this past years experiences have put a slight damper on a number of days for me; and I know for so many.
So… getting to the point. I love sharing anything I come across which touches my heart and soul or perhaps just my taste.
This is me sharing music. A passion. A love story. Music is just that rare and beautiful medium that conjures up every memory, feeling, mood and experience we have gone through and are yet too.
It is also a beautiful piece and so apt for the times we live in right now. it’s the most beautiful cover of a Finneas song about a lady who loses her husband to Covid. It is sad and tragic but absolutely magical and a memory for her and all who have lost someone, to savor for all time.
