What I…


What I know is that challenges appear so that we can be refined. The more we learn, change, and grow, the closer we come to feeling whole. Feeling complete is not something you can attain but rather realize. We only realise that we are full, capable human beings when we are forced to be resourceful and step out of our comfort zones.


Exploration. I love traveling, working up a sweat on an outdoor activity, spending time in nature, and writing.


I’m in between books at the moment and have a habit of re-reading books that I’ve enjoyed – several times. I also get the audio versions so that I can listen to them while I’m cooking or driving. Right now, I’m reading Thrive by Arianna Huffington (again), and The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron – both self-help books.


I want a life packed with adventure. I have a knack for telling stories and my lively nature forces me to keep things interesting. I want to see the world, meet new people, learn new languages, and share stories.



My staple shoes right now – at home and a lot of other places, is a pair of oh-so-comfy slip-ins. I’ve had them for about three years and take them everywhere with me. If I don’t get to wear them out, they’ll be waiting in the boot of my car. In terms of clothing, I like a lot of solid colours, nothing too bright, nothing sparkling like statement clothing. I wear a lot of pants, tank tops, and oversized knits.


What I need is to learn the art of detachment. It’s my most difficult challenge right now. I want to be able to love and not feel possessive of people, places and things – love and let go when it’s necessary.

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. The art of detachment…I became too attached to a partner years ago. It ruined my life. Thanks for the wonderful post, Robyn. It truly is time to reconsider my stance on attachment to people, places and things.
