Being a Hermit

Most times I find myself alone.

My best times are with myself.

Yet my world is surrounded by people.

People I love and cherish.

People who love me wholeheartedly as well.

People I make cameo appearances in their lives.

Whom we have shared best laughs and silent cries.

Who hold my heart dearly in theirs.

Whose hearts I hold dearly in mine.

Who appreciate even singular encounters that turned strangers into friends. Family. Lovers. Teachers. Learners. Acquaintances. Everything.

Being invited to share and be part of special moments is a daily.

Being able to honour every invitation is a rarity.

Today,

I accept that I cannot be all to all.

I cannot honour my most pressing need and not shatter another loved one’s hope or desire or plea.

Yet in all these needs, I honour the need to be myself wherever I land.

Coz I’m a hermit. We all are.

The first and last relationship, need, love I have is myself.

Celebrating EXCELLENCE

Today marks 2 years since concluding the Airports Company South Africa Business Process Management Project…

This was BPM Day, the day when the entire Head Office hosted a “Process Walkthrough” expo… Each division narrating their role in the company’s Vision 2025…

Great detail and innovation went into planning the entire experience, including pre-event registration chatbots, a passport linking each visitor to Sharepoint with more details on each division and a massive puzzle for each participant that completed the walkthrough to put their piece on the big picture puzzle!

I am still in awe that we pulled it off given the challenges that threatened to shatter our big dreams!

What I Learnt Today about Growth…

Today I’m reminded once again that;

Learning happens one day at a time. Winning ideas spring up one moment at a time. Wisdom is ignited one conversation at a time. Legacies are created one experience at a time. Change happens one person at a time.

Perseverance, patience and openness to adventure are sure ways to acquire and achieve that which we seek.

What’s in our minds, hearts and soul is hidden from the earth if we dare not take a step towards adventure and bring it to life through conversations, affection and actions.

Take that adventurous step forward.

It’s worth living.

It may be a great story to tell too one day😜

What I do as a Change Engagement Consultant

  1. Develop captivating change engagement content.

  2. Develop strategies and plans to effect desired change.

  3. Tell stories about change.

  4. Relentlessly solve problems and find solutions to challenges.

  5. Recognise split second moments when the realisation hits that this change is really happening!

  6. Savour a moment to honour, applaud and pat oneself for the seed that was planted, watered, nurtured, pruned is now bearing fruits.

  7. Remember that for the fruits to grow, they also need an enabling environment to ripen.

  8. So, continue to lovingly tender to the soil, the water, the pruning, the harvest, the preparation, the serving and,

  9. EVENTUALLY,

    enjoy the juicy waters dripping out of the perfect yellow PEACHπŸ‘πŸ˜œ

Where I was going…

Yeah I got caught up on Facebook as soon as I grabbed my phone to write this post. Typical behaviour, I got sidetracked and in the process a fire was lit up in my chest!

Then I remembered that, Facebook wasn’t the reason I had grabbed this phone at this hour to air my chest.

After all is said and done, the reason why I grabbed this phone is…

I am faced with a task to go face my past, my past love, or is it still current love? Well I don’t know any more but yeah I have to go to Joburg, tie up loose ends and put some matters to bed.

It’s hard pulling myself out of the bliss of where I am.

I look around and listen to the messages that birds sing in their chirp, the mountains that remind me there are distant places in my sight I cannot even begin to imagine ever reaching.

I look at the children playing mindlessly and remember what it was like when I could not see their play!

Deep sigh,

I pull myself out of my comfort, down the drink (last swallow) and decide that yes,

I will go ahead and face my past self.

My past world.

My love.

My foregone dream that came true but didn’t deliver the gold I had anticipated would be the reward.

Just like in the movies, right?

Right.
