The Curious Wildflower is the personal blog of Alet Swart.
A girl who thought she had little to offer until she realised that her little victories, may well be someone else’s biggest struggles.
It’s a blog about a girl transformed into a woman and how she learns to bloom where she is planted.
Alet shares about her story as a single mom, finding a loving partner and her journey as a part-time student. She open speaks about her struggles with weight-management, the effects of her divorce on her kids and the victories along the way.
Little bit about the Author
I am a South-African, based in sunny Pretoria. My main responsibility is to be the best mom I can be to my two boys, Logan and Oliver. By day I work in the tourism sector, although my passion lies in mobilising employees to the greater good of the organisation. You know, people, tech and the environment – otherwise known as organisational development. For a little more of an introduction as to who I am and what makes my story worth reading, head on over here to find out more about me.
A little about the Blog
The Curious Wildflower is simply a new home for my blogging adventures. I have been blogging for over 10 years (crazy!), and my last blog was called, “Hello, I’m Alet”. The blog had a good run, but I have grown as a person and like I mentioned above, my blog is no longer about me – it is about us! We really are better together and it is time for us all to realise that – especially as women of this generation. If you would like to know more about the name behind the blog, it is best to start here.
To end this little Welcome Message, I will leave you with three random facts about me
1.) My hair is naturally curly. I never blow-wave or straighten my hair and in actual fact, I don’t even own a hairdryer.
2.) I love goal-setting and self-reflection. In fact, I am in the process of sharing tips and tricks I have learned over the years and sharing them in an online shop, right here! Be sure to check back for more inspiration!
3.) Generally, in life and work, you’ll come across people-oriented people and task-oriented people. I am not the former, which is odd, because I’m a psychology major and the whole little blog is about people, sharing stories and being supportive of each other.
Then again – all that is for the greater good – thriving, well-adjust human beings and happier generations to come.
