What are pressure points? According to the Merriam Webster online dictionary, a pressure point is a place in your body that can be pressed to stop tension or pain. Wiki how, says that ‘the traditional definition of a pressure point is a point that when pressure is applied, produces crippling pain, they are also known as vulnerable points’.

It has been two weeks again, and I just could not post… I am extremely busy and my busy is different. My busy has to do with the time I spend to prepare and since I am a teacher by calling and I teach every single day, hours and hours of my nights are spent ensuring that I am ready for my tasks during the day. Translation; once I am done for the day, the last thing I want to do is blog. Yes, I said it, and it is MY TRUTH!

I have a habit, and I have been told it is a bad one; I don’t listen to the news. I don’t listen to the news because the last time I checked, it is bad, sad, angry or frustrating news back to back. Suddenly, it seems like our world is predominantly bad and finding good in it is like looking for a needle in a haystack…however, I am personally determined that every time you take a look at the world, and you look in my direction, you will always find good. Thankfully, I am not the only one who is this determined; I know some other people who have made this commitment too.

I was meant to post this yesterday, but by the time I got to my end of the day, I was too drained to get it done. What drained me this badly? You may ask. Well, it was a meeting and conversation with some of my team members reviewing what we do, what we need to do and how we will get it done.
At some point during the conversation, one of them said to me “Ma; you do so many things, maybe we need to cut down the number of what you do”. She just joined us, and I can understand the overwhelm she was feeling because I was feeling it as well. Even though we agreed eventually, that cutting down the number of things we do isn’t the right solution but to ask God for the right team of people who will put their heart and head to the work, I could not stop considering what I should cut.

I have been speaking for so many years, I speak at least once every week, yet it doesn’t seem like I will ever get to a place when I am no longer conscious and for a short time lacking in confidence when I step out each time. Despite this reality, when people say they admire my courage and I tell them that I am one of the most fearful people they might ever meet, they almost always argue with me.

Recently, I was having a conversation with someone, and while it was intense, it was meant to clarify the journey for both of us. As the conversation progressed, I kept hearing her say ‘that is my truth.’ At first, the line registered as ‘that is the truth,’ which meant I responded by saying it wasn’t the truth. Each time, I countered to say, it wasn’t the truth; she got a bit more upset, and she pushed harder to register her opinion. The vehemence with which she did, made me keep quiet to really hear her.
That was then it dawned on me that she wasn’t talking to me about the truth, she was talking to me about her truth. I had to stop and listen more intently, and I realised that she wasn’t keen on The Truth but Her Truth. This conversation highlighted for me something that I had always known but not paid attention to lately, which was that every side had a version of the truth depending on what they faced or their perspective.

Welcome to a brand new 2017. Today is my first work day, and it is not a first work day after two or three weeks but a first day in four whole months. I have not been at my desk in four months to think through my business or give thought to processes and life within Verbatim. No, I was not ill, but the time came for me to step back and reassess the journey and I did. A few life issues cropped up along the way but thank God I was able to find my way back.

Welcome to another great week. Have you heard the news? It is December already!!! Yes, the dreaded December that is indicative that time has practically run out on us for the year 2016. The thing is if you are observant, you don’t need a calendar to tell that the year is coming to an end. How do I mean?
