I am an African

I am an African
For her blue skies take my breath away
And my hope for the future is bright
I am an African
For her people greet me as family
And teach me the meaning of community
I am an African
For her wildness quenches my spirit
And brings me closer to the source of life
When the music of Africa beats in the wind
My blood pulses to its rhythm
And I become the essence of sound
When the colours of Africa dazzle in the sun
My senses drink in its rainbow
And I become the palette of nature
When the stories of Africa echo round the fire
My feet walk in its pathways
And I become the footprints of history
I am an African
Because she is the cradle of our birth
And nurtures an ancient wisdom
I am an African
Because she lives in the world’s shadow
And bursts with a radiant luminosity
I am an African
Because she is the land of tomorrow
And I recognise her gifts as sacred

Reflection on writing an assignment

I am int he process of working through study material and producing an assignment to show my understanding. When I was in high school I got the opportunity to play football/soccer......we got the opportunity to try out different positions in order to find out where we would fit better. Compared to other girls I understood the game very well.....i was physically fit.........but when i got in front of the goal post its as if I just lot the plot even without a goal keeper I still missed........however in defence I was able to get the ball away from oppoents and pass it forward with pretty good skill.......
I feel like I understand the material I am reading but when I start writing my assignment I can see that I missing the goal post.

Why Complaining ISN’T Leading

"If you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you'd be surprised by how well things can work out… Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won't make us happier." - Randy Pausch


A problem, a failure or a complaint ....if I recognise anyone of these things then it becomes my responsibility to deal with it.....it could mean changing direction........it could mean set up boundaries........it could mean anaylse and learn then try again........

It definitely doesnt mean give up, give in,ignore and suffer.

Not all of us are called to lead non-profits or form boards, but we are all called to work for solutions. Here are ten ways you can morph from complainer to leader:
  1. If you are frustrated by your political leaders, rather than writing an angry status update or linking to some outrageous article, get involved. Volunteer in a campaign, vote in an election, run for office.

Count it all joy

Stuying the Book of James.......my theme verse for 2015 and new motto is
 As life comes together one puzzle piece at a time I need to remember that there is a big picture.
Not to get lost in details .....every now again again to take a step back and take stock..... and then jump back in to building of the puzzle even if all is still not clear.
