HARSH INSPIRATION

Of course everybody is not going to love you,
With or without your disability,
Not everybody is going to like you,
Appreciate you,
Understand you,
Accommodate you,
Encourage you,
others may hold your assistive device,
others will talk much about you,
It’s your journey, come on!
Others may accompany you,
stare at glance,
Or choose not to,
Does it mean you terminate your journey?
You see even if you choose to terminate it,
Others will continue with theirs,
The hands of time will not stop,
Neither will they slow down,
It’s a jungle out there for everyone,
So don’t just sit in your pity potty,
Angry at life and fate,
Angry at everyone and everything,
Angry at your family, friends, strangers,
Goats, dogs, wind, rain, leadership, poor infrastructure sunshine….
Angry at you, come on!
It’s a race against time,
In pursuit of joy,
In pursuit of love and happiness,
In pursuit of fulfillment,
So rise up from your pity potty,
Go out there and live,
That’s the only life you have,
Love it,
Love yourself and love others,
None of us are getting out of here alive,
so please stop treating yourself like an after thought.
Eat the delicious food.
Walk in the sunshine.
Jump in
the ocean.
Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure.
Be silly.
Be kind.
Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

Na uache ujinga,
Kumbaff!
#b the change
arise and shine
be out of the box.
