“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King
It’s taken me almost two years for my dream to materialise, and that’s only because I was cultivating it with fear and doubt. The fear to step into the unknown, of what people would think, and the fear of disappointment and failure constantly lured my mind.
It’s only two months ago that I decided that it’s either I continue dreaming the dream, or living the dream and I couldn’t be more excited about the step I’ve taken and more-so, the journey I’ve begun.
Martin Luther King’s quote was a reminder to me that we often want the easy way or convenience, but it’s often the challenges in life that show your strength and abilities. At times It’s not going to be perfect, in-fact, along the way, there will be different sized potholes , but at the end of the day, there are two choices, to remain in that pothole , or move on and see what the rest of the road unfolds.
I couldn’t be more thankful to my husband who believed enough for me when I was sometimes in doubt. The man who believed in my vision enough to orchestrate from its foundations. Gabriel! the support that I’ve had from you is immeasurable, and I couldn’t be more thankful.
My hopes are that Botswana With Rosi will be a platform for celebration and appreciation. To celebrate the uniqueness and beauty of our country, our arts and culture, the success and achievements of Batswana both within and abroad. To welcome those that just want to know about Botswana, and those that we will be hosting now and in the future.
