“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice
― Martin Luther King Jr.
Hello, I hope that you are well and have had a good week. Thank you for joining me. Wow, I cannot believe that it is once again Sunday. I am grateful to have survived this week. I find my suspicions confirmed about the injustice that I face and in which I have been trapped. Thankfully the Sun has been shining through the clouds and joy, happiness and love still find their way into my days and into my life.
Current circumstances mean that I must delay posting just yet. The full post has been written. I am under threat. I must wear the muzzle forced upon me. I am silenced, for now. This is why my post has been withheld until now.
I will post a greeting and nothing more for the moment, until I am once again safe and free from threats and free from silence to share my story. Gosh, it's lucky that I live in a First World Democracy. I say this sarcastically, in case you missed it.
Part of me wants to shut down this blog. My altruistic motives for writing this blog, undertaking this goal of helping people and making a positive difference in this world through inspiration and sharing my story, the podcast and the rest, as I have been told by so many to do, seem to be perhaps too idealistic and too lofty. I am both glad and grateful that I have been able to offer motivation and inspiration to others already and help them in their lives.
I will take my decisions one at a time. I am exhausted. I am too battle weary. I am disillusioned. I am heartbroken. Often I forget to breathe. I continue in the hope that I can help someone else stuck in a seemingly endless and despairing situation. Don't give in. Don't give up. To this end, I will continue in this endeavour.
Afterall, in the Old Testament, David beat Goliath. Joshua too brought down the Walls of Jericho with only his Ram's Horn. Only Three Hundred Spartans with their Leader Leonidas defeated Xerxes and his Persian Army in the Battle of Thermopylae in 480B.C. I have beaten the odds too many times already. I have defied Hades and The Fates, so many times, countless in fact, already. It's too late to stop now...
As a Scientist, as a Physicist and as a Woman, I do not believe in Impossible. I understand and believe in the seemingly impossible. This is not Impossible. These are two entirely separate things. I believe in highly improbable and highly unlikely but these are not Impossible. Impossible is where discovery and opportunity, along with success live in the yet undiscovered and the yet untried, yet untested and yet untrodden paths. A lack of current success does not mean Impossible. A lack of resources does not mean Impossible. A lack of current opportunity does not mean Impossible. A lack of strength does not mean Impossible. A lack of certainty does not mean Impossible. Impossible is merely the reflection of Fear. Possible is a work in progress, ALWAYS!
May you continue to see the light
even if and when it is merely a fleck in the blackest darkness. May your
journey take you to delightful and joyous places. May you continue to fight for
the life that you want. May your dreams come true. Most humbly, I hope that I will be able to inspire you in this way.
Take care, stay happy, safe and well.
Travelling Wilbury’s made great music. Given the collective of wonderfully talented music legends in this band, it was assured. I have been a long time fan since the beginning. I hope that you enjoy this great song “End of the Line” which signifies how I am currently feeling. This is currently where I find myself at this point in time. The road is forked. I have chosen my path. I take one small step at a time. Whatever happens, in some capacity this is indeed the end of the line. I pray that the next part of my journey is easier.
I hope you have a great week and do something fun to keep joy in your heart and your life.
Bye for now.
