Things That Do Not Change. (

Milton KamwendoWe all lined up in our khaki crisp uniforms that still smelt fresh. We were excited and afraid. We felt intimidated but hopeful. We giggled and some cried and refused to move. Then came the tall elderly man who seemed to have silencing authority – it was his majesty – the headmaster. We all kept quiet and clung close to the people that had brought us to our first taste of school. That was 30 years ago on my first day at school in Bulawayo when my mother took me to Masuku Primary School. This was the first major change of my life and little did I know that this township school would be my home for seven years and would groom and develop me in many ways. It would bequeath to me many precious childhood memories and shape me in many ways.

We all face change in many ways. Change can be traumatic. The anticipation of change could be exciting but when it comes it could look too surreal. Maybe this is why Helen Keller advised: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces towards change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.” Whenever we face change it is up to us to choose the attitude with which we approach the change. However whatever change we go through at any level there are some things that do not change. Not all change is necessarily an improvement or brings progress but without change there cannot be any improvement, or progress. There are four things that never change these are God, change, principles and choice.

God remains God whatever happens and whatever we do. Things may change, fashions may change, ideas may change but there is no one human being who has a monopoly over God. This is the reason why all true change has to start within. There is an old prayer that we must all pray daily and often. The prayer is: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things and people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it is me.”

  • Write your own original life script
    Most of us are living according to scripts written by other people, we are not original. We act not according to how we really want to but according to how the society we live in expect us to act, how our peers act or what was instilled into our minds as we grew up or what the book says…..

  • What ever it takes
    Goals are good, but goals alone without the necessary action do not profit much. Goals require an important condiment called action. To be the best in any field one has to be willing to do whatever it takes. “Whatever it takes” is not as easy as it sounds……
