Share Your World – January 1, 2018

Every Monday Cee posts four questions part of the sharing your (my) world. Click here for this week’s one, which fell on January 1st – the first one of the year on the first day of the year.


What one word describes you best?

Determined maybe. Focused perhaps. Ambitious? I’ll go with all three. Empathetic. Compassionate. Soft-hearted. If I answer this question tomorrow the word(s) will be different.

What is set as the background on your computer?

The standard Mac wallpaper of waves lapping the beach. I don’t find it particularly useful to have a wallpaper that I never see because of all the apps I have open. I do have a screensaver slideshow of my photos, those that I’ve posted on this blog.

If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been to?

I’m going to Belgium on Thursday for a training course. I’ll be there a few days before to get to know Ghent, the city I’ll be at. I’m travelling via the Netherlands. So Belgium and the Netherlands are two countries I’ve never been to and will, this week, although the Netherlands is just in passing (for now). In July Che and I are going to Thailand. I’ve visited so far:

  • Born in Mozambique
  • Live in South Africa
  • Namibia
  • Swaziland
  • Portugal
  • Mauritius
  • USA
  • Germany
  • France
  • Spain
  • Maldives
  • India

I want to get one of those wall maps of the world that you scratch off each country as you visit it, like one of these Scratch Maps.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  

Christmas and New Year week and I appreciated time with family, food and the lovely hot weather.

Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.)

Partly cloudy with the sun peeking through.

If you could witness or physically attend any event past, present or future, what would it be?

Nelson Mandela’s first public speech on 11 February 1990, after his release. My friends T & B were there and described the electric energy in the audience. It was not the same watching on TV.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  

After a year of learnings and deep personal shifts this year, I was glad to be writing my final social entrepreneurship programme exam yesterday. It consumed more energy and time than I expected when I started in January, and at the same time, I feel the pull of this new world I stepped in to. Courage is my word for the immediate future.

I wish you a courageous week ahead!

 

Courage

As I prepare to write my final exam tomorrow I have reached the point of enoughness for this year. Courage is a word that often left my lips, to clients, friends, family, and to myself. I know that it hasn’t only been me. Many things have happened in the world, things that many thought impossible to ever have happened. Some were positive, others negative.

Today is the 1st of December. As the year winds down, I reflect on what courage has been for me this year.

I’m looking forward to a December of reading books, spending time with family and enjoying the hot sun on my skin.
