Is what I am .
Not wanting this to be a narcissistic post ,
Stay with me .
As soon as we would get ” comfortable ” in one place , off we were to another adventure! Another topography, another culture , another people .
Another start .
Today as I look back , I have Revelation in Retrospect .
I count it a pure privilege to be able to travel the way I did , across the length and breadth of my country , from the mountains and the peaks to the plains and the plateaus ; not only was I blessed to see it all , but also live it all .
To be able to blend in , yet stand out .
To be able to learn , yet stand firm .
To be able to imbibe , yet inspire .
Is how I grew .
Though this is not a post about a nostalgic childhood , but one that seeks to encourage everyone to be pliable enough to let life take you where it intends for you to go , embracing each step of the journey as a walk to arriving at being a melting pot of various influences and lessons , aspirations and inspirations , dreams and fantasies.
To spur you to tread uncharted waters.
To follow your heart and allow yourself the rare gift of being astonished at where it takes you.
To be all embracing .
To nurture a broad and generous spirit .
To be true to yourself and to your potential .
To trust life .
To appreciate , that even as you read this , at this very moment in the history of your life , you already ARE a ” Melting Pot ” , of experiences and journeys that are unique to you and tailor made for your authentic Destiny to play out in the World , and in fact , before all the World.
To break down the walls and break open the gates .
To soak in and let go .
To inhale and exhale .
To take in and to contribute.
A Melting Pot in a divinely orchestrated cosmos , you have a role that is so representative of you that it even has your unique finger prints on it !
Think about that .
There was never , is not , and never will be another YOU !
Through school bullying and partying ,
Break ups and Graduation ceremonies,
Weddings and baby showers ,
Job promotions and business ventures ,
Learning to parent and leading an organisation,
An abrupt end and a refreshing start ,
You have stood the test of time and are STILL standing ! You are not just a testimony to the power of faith , you have become a melting pot that is infinitely vast and rich in the treasure it holds , and the Treasure that holds you .
