Your Pregnancy - - Letters -

I find that peo­ple tend to over­look the sim­ple bless­ings in their lives, while they put all their en­ergy into at­tain­ing some dis­tant goal. It’s good to dream big and be am­bi­tious in life, but un­con­trolled am­bi­tion turns to ob­ses­sion over goals. We were all born with cer­tain abil­i­ties and tal­ents, but if we con­stantly seek what we don’t have, we fail to recog­nise what we do have. I was out in the gar­den with my daugh­ter the other day, and was over­whelmed by the beauty of na­ture. Some­times we move so fast that we don’t see this in­cred­i­ble beauty around us, and don’t al­low mother na­ture to give us her mes­sage. We need to slow down and pay at­ten­tion. Sum­mer is here, and even with­out a cal­en­dar, Mother Na­ture gives us clues that it’s time to soak in all the fresh­ness that’s out there. I wish you all a colour­ful sea­son and re­mem­ber to bloom where you’re planted! PHINDILE MOTILENI, SOKHULUMI
