International Literacy Day


International Literacy Day, celebrated on September 8th every year, is a global endeavor to champion the fundamental right to education.

Established by UNESCO in 1966, this day highlights the critical role that literacy plays in empowering individuals and entire communities. It’s a call to action to eradicate illiteracy worldwide, promoting the idea that every person, regardless of their background, deserves access to quality education.

From Dr Seuss, "The more that you read, the more that you know"

International Literacy Day serves as a powerful reminder that literacy is not only a tool for personal advancement but also a catalyst for economic development, social equality, and overall well-being. It’s an opportunity for governments, organizations, and individuals to come together, pledging their commitment to creating a world where everyone can read, write, and reach their full potential.

Each Season Exists to Serve its Purpose

WInter-SummerI love this quote from Tshepo H. Maloa:Β 

β€œOne of the most important lessons I’ve come to learn is this:
We are all sailing in our own individual ship of life; and no matter how great of a sailer you may be, we all experience seasons the same.
The storms will come, and the cold will come, the warmth shall come, and the blossom of spring shall also come.
… Winter is not bad for existing, nor is summer any less great for being hot.
Each season exists to serve its purpose…
And none of us are exempted from enduring the seasons.
Understand the seasons and times of life.
Take delight in the sun and at the sight of blooming flowers, but remember, the storms and the winter shall also surely come.
Learn how to adjust your sails and know when to adjust them, prepare yourself for the cold and the stormy seasons, but remember to always enjoy the sun while it shines…”

Where does time go?

In the eternal tapestry of life, where does time go?

It slips through our fingers like grains of sand, swift and elusive, leaving behind echoes of moments once lived. Time, a magnificent enigma, dances to its own rhythm, forever flowing forward. It reminds us that life is a fleeting gift, urging us to seize every precious second, every breath, and every heartbeat.

As we ponder its mysteries, let us embrace the beauty of each passing moment, for within them lie endless possibilities and untold wonders. Time may elude our grasp, but it ignites the fire within us to dream, to create, and to grow.

Let us forge our path, knowing that the journey matters more than the destination, for it is in the pursuit of our dreams that we find true fulfillment. So, let us cherish every tick of the clock, every dawn that paints the sky, and every smile that brightens our days. For in the grand tapestry of life, it is not the destination that defines us, but the grace with which we embrace the mystery of where time goes.
