Well done @paulsweat1000 & @andrewsweat1000 🙌🏼(PS- congrats on your anni with @georgina_rothschild💞) #SWEAT1000
❤️🇿🇦 The Ponte Tower in #johannesburg has always fascinated me. It has a cylindrical open centre and at 55 stories high also has incredible views. Once a desirable address it fell into bad times in the ‘80s and allegedly had a garbage pit at its centre towering 14 floors high 😮 It has now had investment and a rejuvenation of sorts helping residents and tourists alike rethink the centre of Joburg . It has appeared in many films and if you search the wonderful interweb you will find countless articles regaling the tower’s journey through the years and what the architects were actually thinking when they dreamt up the design (one of the best is a fabulous podcast by @99percentinvisible ). I just like to think of the many stories this building could tell - like so many buildings in incredible #downtownjohannesburg 🙌🏼
A perfectly African sunset. At dinner my client said “the challenge here in Johannesburg is around who controls the narrative. Whose stories get told? Whose stories get suppressed?” Over the next two days, the table is open. There is space for all of the stories. No exceptions. #johannesburg#southafrica#joburg#storytelling#leadership
My previous relationship was the toughest for me in terms of my self confidence. I was tryna do something and I kept failing until I eventually just began feeling like a total loser and a failure. I craved success so much that I felt guilty everytime I did something that didn't work towards my vision. My girlfriend was young and she didn't know how tough it could be to stand when the whole world seems to be determined to cut your legs. I used to practice programming for hours on end until I dreamt I was coding. I started feeling like I was gonna be one of those homeless guys that was skilled but nobody knew because he had no papers, just talent.
Looking at where I am now, I realise that luck played a huge part in my rise to being the person I visualized in my head. I couldn't have done it without her support. She was there for me. So was her mom. it was important to have that when I was at my lowest and at the tipping point where my life was beginning to change for the better.
My mom, she's the real hero of this story. She's my inspiration, my reason to never give up. Without my mom I'd have quit.
My dad, he was the ultimate antagonist in my story. He was put there to toughen me up and show me that even family can want to see you suffer.
Here I stand, the real me. Fuck the social media bullshit. None of us are perfect and none of us are without demons.
