Twenty Seven

I have hated the way I looked, I have been through struggles with my size/weight, but over time I have grown to love and accept myself flaws and all and most importantly take care of myself.

I have loved, I have had my heart broken, I have laughed, I have cried myself to sleep and have learnt the importance of self love.

I have travel to the east and traveled to the west, I have seen, learnt and experienced so much on those trips and after each one realise just how fortunate we are hear at home and how blessed we are as a nation, even with our woes; and with each trip I find my myself feeling more and more proud to be an African.

I have lost those closest to me, I have formed bonds that have stood the test of distance & time, I have realised that not all people are there for a lifetime, but sometimes just for a month or a season and forcing matters only makes things difficult.

I have worked my ass off and received no recognition for it, I have also poured my heart into projects I believe in that have rewarded me greatly, I have been fortunate to have people around me that encourage me to keep pushing myself regardless, they will never know just how much they mean to me.

I have questioned God and my existence countless times, hit rock bottom more than once and found my way up again, which is why I praise him daily for every single blessing, no matter how small.

I have come a long way in the short years I’ve lived and am happy to share that in all that I’ve been through, it has all lead me to this wonderful place I am currently at… content, wiser, inspired and excited for all that lies ahead for me.

Through Shaded Eyes (TSE) is the brainchild of Tokelo Motsepe. A retail buyer and digital strategist with an addiction to blogging, this blog is a platform for my style, life and love for fashion to be shared. What started as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the world, has now become a place to let out my passion for fashion & writing, in-between time spent at work, traveling, or doing everything else life throws at me… it has become a form of expression and I hope it can inspire and encourage you to also share!
