Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You Bend a Little.

I see fear as a recipe for failure, but the good news is, I am empowered to beat fear and start over again.

Before I can change the world I must needs change myself. Looking honestly into myself, I find plenty that needs changing.

There have been many times I have had to bend to survive, fortunately, if I bend for too long, it gives me backache.

The span of my years is not in my control. What is in my control is how I enjoy them.

Four Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

My life is one big Blessing, I love it! I acknowledge this in gratitude both at the beginning and end of my day. Daily, I live my life to the full.

I own no valuables that are worth stealing. The two most valuable possessions I have in my life, are my heart and my dreams, and, trust me, they are staying put.

It is said, “Life is too short.” Yet, none of us wants to grow old. A little confusing. Queen was on the right track when Freddy Mercury sang, “Who Wants to Live Forever.” Well I do, I don’t care how old I am – I just love life. How about you?

I am a free soul. As a youth, I used to water-ski naked at night – did you?

Serengeti in Africa….

As something different this week, I am posting the work of two of the WhyWrte? course participants –

This is Jingaling’s contribution – enjoy:

Ecosystems anywhere, are worth going to. Why? You may ask yourself.

Let me tell you about my experience.

Being confined to a routine of work and home, a visit to the Serengeti brought me back to earth, showing me an amazing way of communicating and enjoying life by “just thinking”.

I always say “thinking is essential” to achieve what you want in life, both in your personal and business lives. This is common sense, I know, but I promise you, common sense does not always prevail in life today.

I learnt a little Swahili, as this is the official language of Tanzania, Uganda, and Kenya. Learning this taught me how to stay humble and also to never ever judge anyone that walks with you. By speaking the home language, ISwahili gained so much respect from Tanzanian people, that I felt like a visiting queen, however, I was anything but. I only managed to speak a few sentences to ensure that I could make myself understood and not talk myself into trouble.

Before the Lion King, hakuna matata was used in a well-known Kenyan song “Jambo Bwana” by ‘Them Mushrooms’. I was not aware of this, but people told me, and I found it interesting.

You must wonder why The Serengeti?

Well, it is Tanzania’s oldest game reserve, renowned as the site of the annual Great Migration, this is really no joke, but an estimated three million antelope – mostly wildebeest — migrate here. This in itself is amazing and somethingwildebeeste 3 to see. Which now that I have seen this with my own eyes, I have developed a love for this place.

In the Serengeti, the focus is on the big predators, of course. The lion is the star of the show, the animal that everybody wants to see.

The lions of the Serengeti reminded me that every person should adopt a lion image; Lions make themselves safe and are respected by other animals. Each of us should place ourselves where we can succeed and achieve our goals.

The African predators also remind us about the issue of conflict, which is something we all have in our lives and must learn from each experience in order to equip us in dealing with conflict when it comes around again.

Whilst the great predators of the Serengeti are responsible for strategy and seeming conflict, it is the more numerous hoofed creatures, populating the plains, that cheer the Serengeti’s remarkable setting.

The Serengeti is composed of stunning geography; the landscape is formed of rocks that intrude into the plains, which are like a sea of grass.

But the Serengeti’s setting is more complex than geology, because it includes life itself, a setting packed with the smaller creatures that enrich the landscape with drama but also with detail.

This is life, and seeing these animals do what they do, made me realize that life is a gem in itself.

In the end, it’s up to us, as humans, to preserve the structure of nature’s tale, the flow of our world’s story, and the significance of the creatures that share our world; for we are also part of the story, hence we must nurture and protect what we have been given.

I want to leave you with the following acronym, by which I live: “R.A.P”

R – Responsible

A – Accountable

P – Proud

As humans, we are responsible for our own actions, and we are accountable for those actions, at all times; but it does not end there, after being responsible and accountable , one must always be proud of one’s actions.

Stay safe and mentally healthy,
