Wow! We are are in 2009 and I am still in the process of settling in. Yes I know it is past mid-Jan to be settling in but “ha li na mo tloha pele” (an early or late start is immaterial for only the end matters).
So first things first. Let me wish all a very happy and fruitful year. I hope all will find that which they are looking for. Personally I intend to find myself. This quest was inspired by Cozzie a wonderful lady that has played a significant role in my life from day 1 as she puts it. Anyway Cozzie on the 31st Dec paid me a visit and in our conversation she made me realise the importance of retaining self as one grows. As she aptly put it, in any kind of a relationship one needs to always retain the essence of who they are lest they wake up one fine morning to wonder what happened to the them?
I do believe that I have lost myself a little bit. I feel I am no longer the Mathe I was a while back before my BMI bordered on obesity. Therefore as a matter of priority one of my goals for this year will be to go back and find myself. The upside is that my view from the back is quite pleasing despite the weight or precisely because of it … I have had “bo ke metsi a foro ke ea lelemela” (the easy going type of men who are as fluid as water running in a pipe) proclaim their undying love walking behind me without seeing how I look. The downside is that in turning back, some may feel I am turning my back on them but that is far from the truth. My quest is simply about self-knowledge and being proud of who I am.
