Woman Crush Wednesday – Lulu Haangala

So its day two of my zed blogger challenge and I thought its Wednesday what better to write about that a female who inspires me. Now I won’t pretend to be deep and all that picking on someone whose name I can’t pronounce or spell right. No. I have decided to pick someone close to home. My big sister the beautiful 🙂 Luyando Haangala.. 

To some she is just some annoying loud little girl who jumps up and down in front of a camera making noise, to others she is a person they look at in awe and aspire to be like but for me she is my sister who is an amazing Mother to an even more amazing little girl, she is an amazing friend and she is an even more amazing sister.

What is so inspiring about her you may wonder? Her story. She may be an annoying loud little girl who jumps up and down in front of a camera making noise, but she had a dream to get behind the camera and she worked hard until she got that dream. I would like to go into depth about her struggle to get where she is today which is as one of the few delegates selected to the Washington Young African Leaders Fellowship, but I am not sure she would permit me to do so. She is probably saving that for her memoirs and I would not want to preempt that ;-). 

I remember her singing when she was 5 years old, in an off key voice of course (not every 5 year old is blessed with talent at that early age) but she knew what she wanted and guess what that 5 year old ended up being invited to sing for Zambia’s 1st Republican President!!!

the five year old with a voice that sings off key and a dream!!!

When she came back to Zambia, she had a dream of a future she wanted, many looked at her as a dreamer, others, laughed her off, others helped 🙂 and now she is slowly but surely watching her dreams come to light. 

Walt Disney said “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” I am grateful for my sister because she gives me the courage to pursue my dreams. She truly makes me believe that impossible is nothing.

Mythical Muses

When I received the challenge for this month, I must say I was quite excited when I opened my mail and found it was an email from Martha, until I opened the email and I read it over and over and over and over again and I came up empty…. I was struggling to find what inspires me to write down my thoughts, to find my muse…I always say I am not the most creative person on the planet, in fact all my blog entries are nothing creative just me writing what I know personal experiences and all… thus the struggle to find what inspires me… I looked up the word muse, it is a mythical creature that inspired literature, poetry blah blah blah and for some reason certain works  portray muses as being sex goddesses and I can definitely say without a doubt that I do not have that!!!!! LOL…

My inspiration to blog, to write or to whip up something magical in the kitchen (yes cooking is art too!!!!) is self preservation if I am being honest. Its simply me trying to find a way not to let my thoughts and emotions bubble over and lead me into a downward spiral of depression and despair…lol…

So unless there is such a thing as inspiring yourself to write and I dont think such a thing exsits, lol, muses in my life are mythical..

Those are my two cents on the matter, my name is Lweendo and #Iamazedblogger Inline image 2

 

I am a Zed Blogger

I always try to start a blog with a smart opening line so as to captivate the reader, or put a smart tag here or there to grab peoples attention and get more views and blah blah blah.. None of that here I’m just gonna go straight to the point cause this is something I’m actually quite excited about. Not that my other blog posts don’t excite me…. Lol.. Anyway recently came across a blog post from one of the blogs I follow Miss Kundwe, if I wasn’t using my phone I would have posted a link to the said post..  No that’s a lie I have just forgotten Lol… But here is a direct link which you can use ONLY AFTER you are done reading this one :-). Anyway so it was a little project called #IAmAZedBlogger.. Every artist needs some sort of muse and direction yes? Yes! This comes at quite the perfect time cause I have been slacking in the bloggosphere, hmmm is that a word? Oh well, in my world it is.. So slacking basically because I’m not ready to ‘journal’ my life for the ‘whole world’ to read so to be able to write with direction is something I’m quite looking foward to.. Additionally I get to meet and read a lot of blogs from fellow Zambians, they are quite a few out there we could have a little ‘artist’ blog party.. Lol.. Anyway all I wanted to say is Hi, my name is Lweendo and #IAmAZedBlogger 🙂Image
