Each month Pomegranite endeavours to get out of the office as a team and do something different, fun and, most importantly, inspiring. This past Friday we went on an afternoon trip to Hout Bay and had a creative session at the Clay Café.
There have been a number of days in my working life when life has bumped into work, and I have had to dig as deep as it’s possible to dig in order to get up, get dressed, go to work and act like it’s just another day.
I have mixed feelings about those Facebook memory posts. You know the ones, they appear first thing in the morning announcing, with confetti, “on this day four years ago…” and a photo of you in the arms of an ex-boyfriend that makes you cringe inside. That’s no way to start the day. It’s like running into your old self on the street, a twin you enthusiastically wearing your old clothes, obliviously making your old mistakes. You’re confronted with the person you were, a person who has changed. Mostly, I wanted to drag that historical twin into the nearest doorway and pack her away into a cupboard.
