Woman Crush Wednesday – Lulu Haangala

So its day two of my zed blogger challenge and I thought its Wednesday what better to write about that a female who inspires me. Now I won’t pretend to be deep and all that picking on someone whose name I can’t pronounce or spell right. No. I have decided to pick someone close to home. My big sister the beautiful 🙂 Luyando Haangala.. 

To some she is just some annoying loud little girl who jumps up and down in front of a camera making noise, to others she is a person they look at in awe and aspire to be like but for me she is my sister who is an amazing Mother to an even more amazing little girl, she is an amazing friend and she is an even more amazing sister.

What is so inspiring about her you may wonder? Her story. She may be an annoying loud little girl who jumps up and down in front of a camera making noise, but she had a dream to get behind the camera and she worked hard until she got that dream. I would like to go into depth about her struggle to get where she is today which is as one of the few delegates selected to the Washington Young African Leaders Fellowship, but I am not sure she would permit me to do so. She is probably saving that for her memoirs and I would not want to preempt that ;-). 

I remember her singing when she was 5 years old, in an off key voice of course (not every 5 year old is blessed with talent at that early age) but she knew what she wanted and guess what that 5 year old ended up being invited to sing for Zambia’s 1st Republican President!!!

the five year old with a voice that sings off key and a dream!!!

When she came back to Zambia, she had a dream of a future she wanted, many looked at her as a dreamer, others, laughed her off, others helped 🙂 and now she is slowly but surely watching her dreams come to light. 

Walt Disney said “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” I am grateful for my sister because she gives me the courage to pursue my dreams. She truly makes me believe that impossible is nothing.

Terrific Tuesday

well I honestly dont know where to start from ey, I am taking part in the Zed blogger challenge and gosh in the last couple month I have been slacking… apologies Martha , I promise to do better. Anyway this month’s zed blogger challenge is five days of blogging and I was honestly stomped on what to blog about and whether I had enough juice to blog for five straight days but what the heck, I decided to give it a try.

Today I made a decision. A decision to let go and let God. Yes we all say this but after a couple of things not going my way, I realized it was just a couple of things that did not go my way. If I had to count the number of things that did go my way, well, I stopped and apologized to God for ever doubting what he has in store for me. After a conversation with my Dad this morning, I realized that my faith in God is not as big as it should be. I am only human and I do believe he is their in the back ground pulling the strings of my life ensuring every thing falls into place, turning no’s into yeses 🙂 and I am grateful. As stated I am only human and want to get things done at a certain speed but time and time again, he teaches me that my time is not his time. He always blesses me abundantly and his mercies are new everyday and all this is done in his time.  So now I am waiting on his time and suddenly things are a tad bit brighter. It is a terrific Tuesday and I am a Zed blogger!!!
