life has lots of good things stored up for us. How do we make sure they come our way?
1. Be thankful for the good days
2. Acknowledge the bad days
3. Take note of the ‘blah’ days
4. Grow in the scary days
5. Learn from each and every day
Africa by night can be chillingly haunting. The shriek of a witch doctor performing a curse. The moans of a child hallucinating with malaria. The bloodcurdling screeching and droning chants of cultish groups performing exorcisms.
I don’t know if any of you have read the news reports about the Coronavirus parties that people have been holding to challenge the reality that COVID-19 is, in fact, ‘real.’ Some of the stories of the consequences of reckless and irresponsible actions have been totally heartbreaking.
Just for today, why don’t you have a ‘this is me’ day? A day where you celebrate rather than criticise.
Reality is, I feel anything but resilient right now. But resilience isn’t really about how you feel, is it? Resilience is about how you respond.
‘Human hearts are like wet cement- how you treat them will leave a lasting impression.’
When disaster strikes, look for the helpers. And watch them light up the dark.
