I am the lastborn in a family of fourteen, same parents; and raised from a desolated farm, Rietgat near Coligny, previously part of the Transvaal. I inherited honesty and self-discipline from my father and a sense of kindness and faith from my mother. Both passed on early 1990’s five months apart. I have grown up in a land where in a roar of thirteen age rebellion, we burned down the stairways to Heaven, then we were poor, and committed crimes in the name of a class war. We have fallen to the receiving end of disappointments, rejections, broken trust, failures and a cold shoulders. We forget that love never fail and can be the connections we can shared with others that might tie us together with what Paul called patient, kind, and persevering. 1 Corinthians 13:1-13.
My pathway to change is on my self-awareness, to know myself better, and to see reality as it is, not only to think how should it be or wish it to be; but also the good health benefits of de-cluttering the space around my well-being. I have accepted this reality and have chosen to do something to make it better. By placing my whole attention on the present moment, I’ve dissipate stress associated with past and future events.
