A Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, especially those who feel voiceless, dreamless, faceless, nameless…
As we joyfully celebrate mothers in North America, let us also honour the weeping mothers who came before us, victims of wars, terrorism, genocide, domestic violence; mothers we lost in the Jewish Holocaust, Armenian, Rwandan, Biafran genocides, in formerly Apartheid South Africa, mothers caught up in horrific conflicts of Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Congo and Syria….
Have clarity about your intentions AND channel all your attention towards your intentions. Manifestation occurs when who you BE and what you DO are in congruence. Nature abhors vacuums and ambiguity. Become more aware of who, what and where you’re directing all your conscious and unconscious resources to.
No matter how challenging your environment may be, here’s a strategy that will empower your life: For every negative thing that you see, talk about, comment on, also ensure you consciously FOCUS THREE TIMES more energy and attention on positive, inspiring and empowering stories of people who are succeeding, making a positive impact and creating new opportunities.
BAGA on my mind: A year ago, more than 2000 people were killed by Terrorist group Boko Haram in Baga, North-Eastern Nigeria. This year we hear of the Dasuki arms (corruption) ‘yams-sharing’ deal. Hmmmnnn, I’d like to think that I do not wish people evil and yet when a great crime has been committed, (against innocent children, men, women, soldiers), should we not ask ask the heavens to strike all those who benefited from our common wealth?
In the first picture above are 2 of 5 WWN’s 2015 Scholarship Recipients: Chidinma Ezeudu and Blessing Ochomma of St Kizito Girls’ Secondary School. (Future courses of study: Petroleum and Chemical Engineering Respectively).
And in the second picture, I asked to take a picture with them, because like I told them, based on their passions, academic excellence, leadership skills, sense of humanity and creative abilities, they are sure to achieve greatness in the near future. (And I’d love to be a part of their story)!😀
WWN Reflection by @JulietKego: “The idea of #OfficeofTheCitizen is not about ‘changing’ anyone external to you. It’s really about personal accountability and responsibility. It is about taking ownership of how our everyday choices align with who we say we are/what we stand for. It is about fulfilling the personal leadership requirements of the highest office of the land: The Office of the Citizen.
