“Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do. Don’t let the limitations of others limit your vision. If you can remove your self-doubt and believe in yourself, you can achieve what you never thought was possible.”
Our 12-year-old surveying the terrain, on a rain-soaked evening, as we were headed back to Cape Town.
Now, here’s the backstory:
The year was 2018 and the month was April. We were on our way back from our road trip when we pulled up at a picturesque viewing point, for a brief stopover. After an amazing six days of extensive travel across the stunning coastline of South Africa, we found ourselves in the mood for contemplation and some soul-searching reflections.
For some reason, the spouse and I both felt that it was an opportune moment to include the tween in our discussions, especially pertaining to the many learnings we’d had over the past week, and the gamut of experiences, some new and some totally unexpected.
As we spoke our minds and weighed our thoughts, the tween was typically busy surveying the landscape that lay ahead of us. Those were some precious mindful moments with some reflections and some reckonings, that we carried within our souls, before arriving at Cape Town, late that evening. After two beautiful weeks of holiday, it was nearly time to head back home!
