1MMD2014 [206 of 365] Sometimes things don’t go to plan

…and Fate will try to force your hand!

Mummy celebrated her 52nd birthday today.

That’s half a century she’s been alive. Not really keen on living THAT long! The Mortal Coil is so special and so unique, precisely because it is finite.

I take pleasure in being a finite form with infinite possibilities.

Was able to drop L at Service and collect KFC for my Mummy’s birthday lunch, so that she wouldn’t have to cook for my Dad and sisters. Also, picked up a candleholder (been having power outages all willy-nilly lately) and Muffins for dessert… I L O V E Muffins!

The Eskom Foundation application didn’t go to plan, as the required years to be eligible, wasn’t met. Oh well. The 2nd Youth Service was today, but again, power outages left us in the dark, unable to have the Service we intended. Still, it was decided we continue, and what a Blessing it was.

We’re still very much helter skelter, but have a feeling this will be addressed soon.

Just got back from sitting at the fireplace of 1 Albatross. Singing songs. Having fun. Noticed that Man of Steel is playing now. Great job by Zack Snyder!

Critical week this will be for me, not really sure what will happen, but have a feeling it will be of great/grave significance…

The first step

Standard

1MMD2014 [205 of 365] Push through the pain

…somewhere out there is something substantial to gain!

It’s on days like this I feel like giving up.

When the family I grew up with and the new family I made, threatens to tear me apart. There is no winner here between the 2 warring factions, when I can give neither of them what they want. Nature seems to echo my inner turmoil as the overcast sky yields its unending deluge.

Even technology fails me this dreary day, as the Wifi network seems bent on driving me mad.

There will come a time when my time will be my own again, until then I merely bide the time I am allocated.

In response to these external pressures, creating internal turmoil as well, it would be easy to just call it quits. Considering what has happened/is happening, it could even be considered honourable. Still, I am not permitted to do so.

I am here to change The World. No more. No less. You may consider it hubris on my part Dear Reader, but tell me this, if not me, if not you for that matter… then who?

We are entitled to live a Life, following our Bliss, as Joseph Campbell would say, are we not…

Basic human needs

Standard

1MMD2014 [204 of 365] Sometimes for something to happen

…merely the words need be spoken!

Assumption will be the death of progress.

How many times do we just stand in a queue, assuming it’s the right one, reach the front and get redirected to the back of our originally intended one? Okay, it may not be as dramatic for most of us (although I wouldn’t be surprised if this happens to quite a few mortals), but I think I’ve gotten my point across.

The necessary emails that needed to be sent were sent and a small percentage of the requests made. I made a few new linkages and await a few more responses, but;

The Revolution is at hand and will not wait for mere men or women for that matter.

It has been pouring rain for most of the day and there was a power outage a short while ago. No reason given, but I used my Twitter (@davbai24) to contact Eskom (our Energy Supplier here in South Africa and almost half of Africa) and it was turned on within the hour… coincidence?

Which reminds me, application submissions were to be closed today, but after I contacted them this morning, they allowed me the weekend to submit. Hmm, it’s a WHOLE lot of paperwork, but the pros far outweigh the cons…

Do it yourself

Standard

1MMD2014 [203 of 365] What you leave behind

…should be a great story to remind!

That others may know that you honestly cared about doing good.

Not just for your immediate circle, but to those who drifted in and out of it as well. Those who partook of your light and came back wanting more.

In their hearts, on their lips, you shall remain for all of Time.

The Dimension Data EDIP was concerning Wills and Trusts. Learned of most of the important legal processes, as well as the emotional implications it comes packaged with. Still, it is necessary to secure the ones you care about; either in your absence or in the absence of reason.

While there we learned that the New Minister of the SMME Sector (or what ever her official title may be), was in Khayelitsha and some of the class was talking about attending. The general response though, was something like:

“Why should we care? It’ll be more being said than done. As usual.”

Upon my return, I was to deliver a video to Hangula. Please search Tony Robbins – Dare to be great (Youtube)

It changed my Life in the last quarter of 2013 and when he mentioned that he’d like to incorporate the poem into Youth Service on Sunday, I just had to find that video for him.

He even asked me to narrate, not my thing, but how could I refuse.

There is so much still to be done, but focus is required… Good night…

p.s. Still don’t know what the whole #RIPDavid trend on Twitter today was all about, but fear not, it has absolutely nothing to do with me… as far as I know.

Life is too short

Standard

1MMD2014 [202 of 365] Today shall be remembered as the day it began

…where I alone took a stand and others ran!

I shall not fall nor shall I waiver,
No matter the odds not in my favour.

No matter the storms and trials and pain,
With failure at stake I can deal with the strain.

With failure a companion I know so well,
At times falling victim to its mesmerising spell.

At times I seek to leave it all behind,
To put thoughts of success of victory out of my mind.

To put these away and lay them to bed,
Impossible I know for I’d be better off dead.

Impossible I live impossible I know,
Many medals for impossible to show.

Many medals in this War I’ve won,
Many losses I am almost undone.

Many losses hard earned battles fought,
In the future now lies victory the past has taught…

Pray

Standard

1MMD2014 [201 of 365] In the spirit of remaining just

…purity of purpose is a must!

For to forsake one’s core beliefs is a great disservice to The World as well as yourself.

It is when we pretend to be something we’re not and to be okay with something we’re really not comfortable with, that things start to go wrong.

Be you. The World is already filled with enough copies and could do with some more originals.

Between writing an article at 04h00 (a comfortable time for me, even if I went to bed at 01h00 and am freezing to death)  in the morning, replying to a seemingly endless array of emails, deadline obligations and some minor shopping, it was an okay day.

A little on the insane side for a Tuesday, but yeah. Oh, and I’d LOVE to go see The Fray live in Cape Town in September, so if anyone knows someone who knows someone who works at the booking office or is a family member of one of the band members; please hook me up with 2 or 4!

Have a few more boxes to tick, but so far so good…

p.s. Fortunately I can relax with 2 DVDs we hired earlier. Yes, the actual discs that go into… oh nevermind!

Imagine meeting someone

Standard

1MMD2014 [200 of 365] This is a letter from my future self

…be at peace and watch your health!

 

I have learnt and will not reason;

 

The time has come to seize my season;

 

Doing less is tantamount to treason!
