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.

In my eyes

In my eyes, a story is told. A story of how sad I am, how I just wanna cry out at the frustrations that the world will throw at me. A story of how happy I am and how I am bursting at the seams wanting to shout out my joy. In my eyes a story is always told. xx

What should I post about today?

So I have not blogged in forever and a day, it has been so long that who ever gets a notification about this entry will probably have to delve deep into their minds to try and figure out who exactly is blogging. I kid, I kid… well at least I hope I do. So what do I wanna write about today?? Honestly as the title suggests this is one of those entries that will say nothing but at the same time so much more. I must warn you that at the moment I am sitting in my office, mind having shut down about half an hour ago and patiently counting down to 5 o’ clock just so that I can do a system reboot.

Again back to the question, what should I post about today? I can enlighten you on recent thoughts I have had on certain issues, like ummmm soul mates  how I think one of my bestfriend is my one and true soulmate like I should just marry her and all and get it out of the way. ey don’t judge me, I mean What makes a person your soul mate is something I have never truly understood. My understanding of it is someone that I don’t know you click with on so many different levels that things with me just I don’t know make so much sense that being without said person does not make any sense at all.. Spending hours on end chatting about anything and everything and by the time u dont u like ummm what were we even doing?? lol…I believe in the ‘birds of a feather’ saying more than I believe in the whole ‘opposites attract’. so me and said bestfreinds soulmates right?? haha slow your horses guys no need to find out when “civil unions” will be legal in Zambia. I am just kidding.

hmmmm what should I post about today?? I could write about I recently read that made me realise the thin line between fact and fiction and seriously disturbed my day that I almost had trouble keeping down my lunch.. The key word being almost yeah ;). In as much as that story hit a little close to home, I managed to move on from it in a blink of an eye something which the me of 4 months ago would never have done.. So, am I saying I am a new person or I have found new happiness or any of that?? No. That would be an over-exaggeration of fact. A lot of things just don’t seem to phase me they way they normally would at some point in my life. I can’t say that I am a different person because of things that have happened in my life but I feel like I have grown up tremendously over the past couple of months. other people call it changing, I call it growing up (you should try it.. lol) They do say with great power comes great responsibilty. not that I have any great power or do I?? *giggles*  

really what should I post about today?? maybe the saying that everytime you point a finger at someone there are 3 fingers pointing back at you, no contrary popular belief its not four fingers its 3.. go ahead try it.. told ya! So as I type this out my filter has immediately initiated and told me that it would be politically incorrect for me to finish typing my thoughts on the matter and I might end up a social pariah if I do cause truth be told I haven’t the slightest of ideas of how to separate facts from fiction and cannot for the life of me spin a web that will seem like fiction…true story.. though truth be told being a social pariah would not be such a bad thing ey but sadly social interaction dictates that one should have others to interact to have a errrrr what is the point of social interaction again?? lol I forget.. really I do although the thought no man is an island pops into mind.. although I won’t say much, I do feel strongly about people who comment on other people’s life when they do not have the slightest idea of what is really going on, the saying do not judge a book by its cover comes to mind for instance I can be driving a US$ 100,000 but living in a $100 apartment for which I have to pay rent orrrrrrrr I could be using public transport looking all ragged because I am in the process of building my self that dream US$ 100,000 home.. all I am trying to say is do not judge me..

Back to my question, what should I post about today?? honestly I have no idea and I am terribly sorry to have wasted 3 (5 mins, damn you a slow reader) of your time.. It is way past 5pm now ok not way but it is past so good bye and big balls *giggles* xx
