North Coast Bound

Life can be only what you make it When you're feelin down
You should never fake it. Say what's on your mind
And you'll find in time. That all the negative energy
It would all cease 
And you'll be at peace with yourself
You won't really need no one else
Except for the man up above 
Because He'll give you love (My Life Mary J Blige) 


Today I am up at the crack of dawn to travel to the North Coast, I have the absolute privilege to be a part of a community project which has transformed not only this rural community community but also transformed me
The community is presently in the midst of installing solar panels at a cocoa estate where the they grow their own cocoa and make a number of products including high quality chocolate bars
A bit further on from the cocoa house, they have set up an apiary  with some of the sweetest honey you would ever have in your entire life, a rain water harvesting exercise is happening here.
I will be accompanying a group who has agreed to contribute to the project, a small sum of cash to assist in both of the project's growth and development.
We have come a long way, some days it seemed as though it would never happen based on what we were seeing with our physical eyes, and despite those days the faith and belief was there, never once wavering
They would take a pause "wheel and come again, we would say"
Use those feelings as guides to take the entire thing forward
I so love that
Feelings are a guide to take us forward it is not an indication of anything about the project, the people, it's a guide to let us know to celebrate, pause, rest, cry, laugh, change course, speed it up, change people. Use it
I get to be reminded over and over again when I meet up with them
Peace
