BeautifulMess is an expressive space through which I, Busisiwe Dhlamini, share stories and perspectives inspired by my own life journey and that of others. I began to hold BeautifulMess as a concept close to my heart many years ago after writing a short poem about myself with the same title. It was a spontaneously written piece that captured my imperfectly wonderful nature. I don’t remember what led to my writing that piece, but I do remember the comfort that it gifted me with. I would later learn that my personal piece was everybody else’s story too. We are all as imperfect as we are wonderful.

I now carry BeautifulMess with the intention of holding space for our collective experiences and stories. I hope the content will enrich whatever life path you may be on.

You are invited to sign up to our newsletter to be part of the BeautifulMess community that receives our updates, insights and monthly love letters.
