I’ve spent so many years running on a ţreadmill that went nowhere … working hard with work that I made hard, which inevitably was hardly working. Confused? I was once too 😅
Now I see a bridge as a strong helping hand. Now I see that I am a bridge. I am a strong helping hand!
Unprecedented cooperation and goodwill has caused humanity to unite as one … let’s make that our primary focus and take the opportunity to deconstruct weapons, persecution, racism, prejudice and fear …. let’s invest in humanity!
R U OK exists because an ordinary 16 year old man Jamie, asked an ordinary man about to jump off a bridge, an ordinary question … “Are you OK?” An extraordinary campaign was launched that saves people’s lives. Ironically, the people who advised me to be selfish are people I’ve helped. I guarantee if I hadn’t helped them, they would not be OK!
Why do I help? Because I will never be that person who questions what they could’ve done and said differently to a person who successfully commits suicide. Thus, I will continue to be accused of “being extra” ordinary.
I see a mother who loves her children 🥰
Both good and bad! Recognising how I once allowed the bad to happen enables me to see the toxic mental constructs that caused my demise. It’s why I can see the insanity in what people do. On the flip side, I use this knowledge to know that if I can practise my way to failure, I can practise my way to success. How? I tell myself that I am practising to be successful, I am practising to be awesome, I am practising to be ME! Practise your way to be YOU!

I gained new friends and the capacity to communicate with people of all ages, nationalities, creeds and religions …. 7.8 billion stories to tell, minus 2.
Today that’s how he identified who he was when I asked if I was talking to the young immature Mali that I used to know. I was moved to tears because I knew that of all the things that I have done wrong, at least I’d done one thing right.
