Where the action is!

Don’t let yourself be stopped by what might not even happen. Rather, let yourself be pushed forward by the positive value of what you intend to achieve, to experience, to create. Ralph Marston

Yesterday at base there was a meeting to strategise and come up with plans for the rest of the year and before harvest! I sat quietly at first listening to everyone so that I can really get a good background and learn what the issues, challenges and tasks are.  Truth be told, I was feeling chuck full of fear, the what if’s and the not’s started raising their head! This is an incredibly awesome experience and challenge. I had to remind myself what you have learnt, feel the fear and do it anyway, do your best and you always have the power of choice.

You see, when you are stretching, growing, learning there will always be some discomfort, that’s why it’s called moving out of your comfort zone, but I have learnt that it’s outside of your comfort zone that all the magic takes place.One of the women put it nicely, she said when you are creating or birthing something there is most times pain but after the labour comes love and pleasure! I like that!
Anyways, I am off to Masindi so please bear with me if the posts are late, this is in the countryside of Uganda!

So what did I learn today?
Be Clear About Why You Are Doing It .Very often, we allow what we “don’t want” to determine and sometimes control our behavior. Doing anything just to prove you can do it will ultimately lead to a sense of being unfulfilled. Sit down and get quiet with yourself and make sure you know fully why you are doing what you are doing. Peace!!!
