What an amazing day I had yesterday.
Those who know whats going on, know that I’m Dismantling my Rome I’ve built up since returning to South Africa in 2005, with 4 children, a totally uncertain future and heart pounding with terror in my throat.
Now, 11 years later, it’s just me, all my children are residing in the USA and I find myself single, the home I shared with my partner of 8 years sold and I’m about to have to vacate.
So, I made the decision to let go of what I’ve accumulated and to travel light for a while.
I met two wonderful ladies today who came to collect things I’ve sold. I got to learn about two new people, their struggles, challenges and I realised, we all want to share a little of ourselves, our challenges and our lives. Neither of them may ever read this post, but I wanted to put it out there in the Universe, thank you for telling me your story. I have insatiable curiosity to know what people think about life, what their struggles are and how they are viewing our country.
I have to echo Bryant’s quote – “Meeting another human is always a sacred event.” If you stop for just a moment to ‘see’ the person you’re conversing with, you’ll learn that there is still so much goodness around, that people are desperate to make real connections, even if just for a few minutes.
Have a Happy Hump Day
