Flashbacks and Flashforward
The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” Barak Obama
Yesterday I met with past participants of the NiNa Proramme . Confessions on the journey, I felt such a sense of joy in being aroud them, in seeing how level headed and generous they have become. I can understand now the joy of teaching and it's returns because if this is how I felt just being around them once per week, I can only imagine the feeling being around students daily and seeing their growth
Yesterday made all the sacrifices to find money and speakers worthwhile. That moment when I thought about packing it in last week, is now a distant memory especially seeing how they are now keen to give back to the programme.
Giving and receiving is indeed the same thing
I thank the Universe for the timely reminders that doing something bigger than yourself makes the world an easier place to live.
The NiNa Programme kicks off this July.
