- Big sacrifices have been made for me to be where I am
My parents brought me up to be aware of my personal history and history of Zambians before me. They also taught me to be mindful of how blessed I am daily by focusing on what I have instead of what I do not have. I have found that as I have grown in awareness and mastered that ever so dangerous habit of comparing what I have to that of others, I am having to unlearn. I don’t know at what point it happened i.e. when I started paying so my attention to others instead of minding my own business but I have decided that going forward, I want to be so focused on the way God is already moving and working in my life, that I do not have the time or capacity to be dreaming up a list of other areas I feel He should be working. You see I am learning that we (humans) are so fickle. One minute we feel one thing and the next it is something completely different. Although it is natural to have fluctuations in emotion and direction, it is not the healthiest or most fulfilling way to live.
