Charl Mijnhardt

Writer and blogger at For Our Love of Writing

I'm just a guy who decided, at the age of 33, to give this whole "positive thinking" thing a bash. After spending most of my life mired in negative thinking and self-pity, I decided to create a vision board (mostly because I dreamed of having a MacBook Air). Within a week, two of my most seemingly far-fetched dreams had realized. I'm also a storyteller. Born and bred in South Africa but with a global soul.
