It's been a year today since I started this blog. It is 365 days and 155 posts later and I don't know if I am any more enlightened but I have certainly learned a lot.
I have learned that I have so much more to learn so have come to realise that a year will not be sufficient for my education.
So while I celebrate a year of development I cannot celebrate the birth-day of the idea to write this blog ...much like birthdays in general, which I find difficult in an uncomfortable limelight, as if I don't deserve to be treated so specially. That guilt of having expectations of being treated specially - when actually secretly expecting this everyday.
I don't want to wait for birthdays to treat people better. I agree with Mokokomo Mokhonoana's aphorism :
If everyone was treated like they matter - everyday: birthdays wouldn't be so 'special'.
