I am finding myself where the youths, and the children I am handling in my reading club have always been. I need to have courage. Courage is a virtue that I am not feeling at the moment. I am scared. I have just been admitted to a local college where I am to pursue a Diploma in TV & Film Production. Everyone I have been talking to seem not to know where I can get help. Most are having financial commitments of their own.

I am now left with one option: to soldier on despite the challenges I am facing. I am one person who has a passion for inspiring and motivating others. Now I am at a loss about how I should motivate myself.

He encouraged himself in teh lord his God! Pls play the song and let us dance, if not hum, you are great darling, I am not suprised this is happening, it happens?, I would you then encourage others, there is a saying in the Northern part of Nigeria, it says when you asked the Hausa man to take a medication, he wil ask you if you have taking it before if you say ye, then he would ask again if you have suffered from that same ailemnt before, that is when he would agree to accept your medication. It happens because you have to experience the moment in order to know how it feels adn when others are feeling that same feeling sometimes somehow, you know how to react...LOL
On a serious note. This cannot but happen sometimes so that you can rightly advise anyoone in teh nearest future who needs your encouragement.
Hugh darling.................AND THIS TOO SHALL PASS!
Loads of love from Cape Town, though I am feeling lonely here, no one around me, no loved ones.
