On such an exciting day like today and with an equally mind blowing day tomorrow, I have to admit that I can't do a long blog.

Damn, mamma told me there would be days like this!!! The ones when the truth is important but you so don't want to say it. I know that I can pick and choose whatever I want to say, but I also know that important events can't be overlooked because I'm trying not to be human. That's why I chose to blog ... to show what it's like to be human and live each day for real.

So in my humanness, I have gross girlie, ouch body things going on. I think it's a combination of the new way of eating, gyming like never before and um ... first weekend with Mr Unexpected. My body has seriously gone into shock and it's hectic to have to half tell you and completely share it with a partner. *Insert look of horror here*!!
Of course he was amazing when I told him and it made me realise why I feel so settled with him.

So it's been hectic to remain focused the whole day because there's nothing like feeling uncomfortable to distract the flow. Typical that it's the day when people want information of talks and others have bright ideas for me to follow up on. I can't believe that just yesterday I was in a state about my future and today there was so much to do with my future.

Yes, Greggie told me to continue following my heart and all would be okay, but that's one tough attitude to adjust to. I can't say I didn't do it. I truly gave it my best shot and promised myself that today I would follow through on an idea I had.

This international social media event has got me thinking. My speech tomorrow is about what it takes to catch up with the rest of the world in social media because it's something I truly believe that South Africa has the ability to do. So much of that is mindset and I always notice how few South African's follow me back in comparison to international people. I am determined to change that. I have to change that if I'm going to get people to buy into advertising on my site and monitising my blog.

So I did it ... I started the drive for #followsa on Twitter!! I have this Richard Branson feeling right now ... screw it, just do it!!! If it works, it works ... if not, I tried to make a wave and it fall flat. So I'm going to put some driving force behind it over the next few days and see what happens.

In the meantime, I need an early night because tomorrow is huge and I want to feel semi normal for the big event.
Big love ... me!
