What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love Trade perfectionism for progress
trade perfectionism for progress. Mastin Kipp
The best part of my work is seeing how people use what they have to create
what they want, it is for me a testimony that most times we stay stuck or
don't move because we are either not uncomfortable enough or that we are
trapped in fear! I get to see and experience with my own eyes people who
have decided that for whatever reason their life is more than sitting and
complaining or wishing that things get better without taking some sore of
responsibility for making it happen! And my prayer each day is to use the
lesson that I learn from these experiences in my own life, to move ahead
despite feeling so fearful, to stop moaning and complaining and to make
small steps towards progress, to also share my stories in an empowering way.
So I am here in SVG and there are many examples of this, the fall of the
banana industry and the reduction of tourism has had quite a negative
impact on the economy and by extension the jobs, and employment but there
are groups who have decided that despite this something can be done! I am
heading to the area called Diamond today to work with a group who have made
that leap! stay tuned
On a totally separate note, this to me was also a testament of this but on
a lighter note. I asked around where can I take a run on mornings, the lady
told me that they have an aerobics class that I can come to and have some
fun! okay then, haven't heard or done aerobics in ages! but why not, She
was so happy I said yes. A group of 30 women found a space and decided to
start an aerobics class every evening using one of those old time boom box
cassette players. I was smiling all class, just seeing the scene, in a
school classroom, the boom box and the happiness on their faces, mind you I
was struggling a bit too with my coordination which was funny as hell they
were all laughing at me as well!
After the class, Charmaine said "I bet you never had a good workout like
that?" "We decided we were fed up of asking the Government for a space and
someone to teach us so we do it ourselves"
What could I have said??
" Thank you for the invitation, I had fun!"
Make some progress today people!
