In a recent speech, actor Jeff Bridges referenced ocean-going tankers. These require enormous rudders to turn, and it took too much energy to turn the rudder to turn the ship. So engineers came up with a brilliant idea. Let’s put a little rudder on the big rudder. The little rudder will turn the big rudder, the big rudder will turn the ship. The little rudder is called a trim tab.
Just like in the Brené Brown quote above I’ve sometimes been afraid of the discomfort of vulnerability. Of not being in control, of not being perfect. But creativity, any creativity, not just physically creating something out of nothing, but creativity in decisions and in navigating life, can only exist if we realise that perfection doesn’t exist, and that failure is ok. We must step out into the “chaos” to be brave for only then can magic and growth happen. Anything less, will lead to stagnation
In everyday our kidneys make 150 litres of urine a day, but keep back (reabsorb) 148 litres of useful substances, like protein, and excrete 2 litres of waste. They can be likened to a huge swimming pool filter which never needs backwashing, and will rarely need an overhaul if you look after your health!
For long lasting colour, Sunpatiens are an excellent container and bedding plant. They enjoy a sunny position and well-drained soil.
Getting involved does not necessarily mean you need to start participating in marches, or chaining yourself to palisade fences, but never under-estimate the impact you could make with your voice or action, and encouraging others to do the same. Teach your children who, after all, are the ones who are going to inherit this current mess!
It is good to celebrate where you come from and to be proud of your school, your language, your history, your culture, your religion but is not ok to teach your children that yours is the best or the only right one. That is based entirely on your opinion or belief. Passing this on as fact is limiting and dishonest. Children need to know that there is a bigger world out there. Outside of your beliefs, outside of White River, outside of Nelspruit, outside of South Africa.
“Every patient is free to come and ask questions; it is our job to make sure you understand your medication and the side-effects,” she states earnestly. Some advice she has for her patients, is to look after your health; like following a healthy diet, or just walking around the block if you don’t have time to exercise.
The reality is that it’s who you know and how you connect with the community that’s important. It’s about keeping the awareness of you and your business out there. People forget and “out of sight out of mind” applies. You need to keep reminding them you are around. Find out what community organizations exist, White River has the brilliant We Are White River, a concept that was born out of a passion to build bridges, bring communities in the town together and create opportunities for businesses to grow. Connect with the influencers, the “faces” and ask questions. Get involved with, and support, community events.
The fences have a range of styles from 750mm high single rails to higher 2.5m high 4-rail Buffalo enclosures. These ranch style fences can be used for gardens, horse enclosures, balustrades for decks, road edgings or simply decoration. They are easily fitted with wire mesh to keep dogs in or buck out.
Today, off the shelf drones available to anyone can fly up to 500m high and +-7m away from take-off point. This poses a serious threat to both manned aircraft in the sky and humans on the ground if these drones are used irresponsibly.
