    Henry David Thoreau

    I have just read that Thoreau's hut in the woods at Walden Pond was merely a mile away from his mother's house  and that he would visit every single day! Hmmm ... so much for a life of solitary self reliance  in the woods! I bet he returned home ...

    "First step be confident!

    Others can do it, you can too!" I hate that line so much, it's true and I almost cried when she said it to me. She's trying to be nice, but it doesn't help at all. I'll have to at least try.

    Gratitude.

    Well, this actually happened a few days ago, but I have only just had the chance to write.   I work with a young man, who doesn't see me as his favorite person in the world. Why? Well, generally because I hold him accountable to his responsibilities and goals. He lives...

    Learn Rather Than Teach

    I realized that I want to help so many people, But I have come to the conclusion that sometimes I just do not know how And that I should make peace with it And rather try to learn from them than try to help them Truth be told, yes they need help But they don't need my help...

    Magaka

    I have learnt that I cannot eat green magaka (african horned cucumber) with a spoon. Really, I tried and it was a disaster.... juice on the table, the spoon empty, seeds everywhere :-)
