Nomzamo Mbatha: 'I'm thankful for my life and the Cali beach'
South Africa's golden girl, Nomzamo Mbatha, has been the talk of the town recently.
From having a meltdown on Twitter and having to deactivate her account for a few days, to being referred to as a "puppet" by Ntsiki Mazwai and being accused by the controversial poet of trying to "steal her man".
It's no wonder Mbatha needed a break. The former "Isibaya" actress took to posting an Instagram video together with a written list of things she is grateful for.
In the video, Mbatha, who currently resides in California, is enjoying a day at the beach. She's seen walking on the sand and taking a stroll on the promenade, on what seems to be a sunny day.
Along with the video was a very sentimental caption which reads: "Today I am Thankful for my life and for the Cali beach 🌴. Some days are better than others... and I remain grateful that I move with intention.
"I am an instrument of peace. Operating from a place of love and never operating from a place of fear. I accept all that is not for me and welcome all that is designed for my destiny. That my gifts and talents are enough and I am walking in my purpose. With all the losses the world is facing, what are you most grateful for? #HermosaBeach #Grateful".
Mbatha looks happy despite what social media users have been saying about her lately.
