The Days of Small Beginnings ….

02/02/2018

There is a saying:- Dont despite the days of small beginnings…. Taken from Zechariah 4:10, and a little out of context, this is a symbol of some small beginnings….
Me covering my face after a workout because … who looks good after a workout unless they have a team of make up artists and a camera rolling???

Just started going to a fitness and conditioning centre. I’ve been having such a sedentary life that I have got very unfit and flabby. To the point that I am so very tired so very easily.
I decided to finally do something about it when my son and friends opened this centre, next door to his physiotherapy centre. What a fantastic combination. Off I go then…
More posts to come as I (hopefully) make progress.

Debut… And More

29/01/2018

So….  This then is my debut. I’ve been on stage before – during my school days, and if I recall right, twice during short performances at church services. This however was different. Together with a small cast, I was coached by a professional, and it took months. 
I can’t say I didnt enjoy it. I used to struggle a lot with being the focus of attention. Handicapped me. Hindered me. I have healed and grown much since. Hence this debut. Enjoyed working with the team. I learned a lot.

Guess what? There might be a reprise, and this time at a Black Box. Wow…. Stay tuned.

Awareness

Creating awareness is half the battle?

Understand that we can help?

Don’t be a passive observer?

Make a difference even in one life?

I was at a high tea. Nice sit-down event. Lovely decor with live flowers, in a five-star hotel. Lovely setting to be introduced to an ugly topic.

There are more slaves today than any other time in history.

And it’s happening even at our doorstep. We can’t ignore them anymore. We can’t claim ignorance anymore. Some of us even treat our household helpers in the same way. The shock on the faces of some is evident.

Now the need to act and not merely talk…?
