What I… Divine of Being Yourself

I have decided to kick off my What I… blogger interview series again. It’s always been a lovely way to connect with other bloggers, discover new blogs and share the blogger love around.

Today I am interviewing Divine Kabwe, a Congolese born blogger currently residing in Johannesburg.

Her blog, Being Yourself, is a lifestyle and personal growth blog that she started because she loves writing, listening and helping people.

Divine believes in embracing her uniqueness and loves to share things she is passionate about as well as the knowledge she has acquired – having recently begun her honors degree in International Relations.

Her online space is dedicated to everyone who is seeking to have a mindset shift, to have a better life or to embark on a journey of self discovery.

What I…


I know that I need to be the change I want to see  happening in society. It is easy to complain about what is not working and waiting for someone else to come fix it for you but the reality is, each of us has a role to play and we need to be the change we want to see. I also know that nothing is impossible to whoever believe and work for whatever they want. Discipline, passion, prayer and hard work will help you get closer to your dreams and goals every single day.


I love spending time with people who brings the best out of me. I love good food especially if it is homemade, love going on adventure to an unknown place once in a while and I love being creative and stepping out of my comfort zone as much as I can. I also love handbags, they make me happy


I have am currently reading the Way of a Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman. This book so far has taught me to be present in every moment no matter how little or insignificant a moment can be, it always happen for a reason. The other  thing I have learnt in this book is that it doesn’t matter how many books you read in a month or a year, what matter the most is how you apply the knowledge you have gained from those books.


I want to be able to realize all my projects and be happy and proud of who I am and the woman I am becoming. I want to be able to set an example to whoever is watching me and taking me as example, I hope everything I am doing is pushing them to be themselves and love themselves even more. I want to be a blessing to whoever come in contact with me


I love handbags, I have a large collection and still want to add some more. It is the first accessory I think about when looking for an outfit. Handbags boost my confidence and self esteem, I always carry one whenever I go out. I love stylish clothes as long as it fits my budget. My look is classy and chic, I have a lot of neutral colours. To describe my dressing I would say I can attend 14 weddings in a row without wearing the same outfits twice. But the other side of the story is I struggle to find what to wear to go on campus or hiking cause most of my clothes are chic and classy. I am working on buying more jeans and casual outfit (please don’t judge)


I need everyone to know that it is okay to be yourself, to do what makes you happy even if being happy means letting someone else down, it is important to do so. I need people to understand that becoming the best version of yourself isn’t selfish or for only one category of people, everyone can work towards becoming their best self. It is only when you are at your best that you can give the best to the people around you, people you love the most.

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!
