January is invariably a hectic month for us, filled with the balancing act of managing STEAM in the PARK applications, orchestrating camp plans, and coordinating our travel schedule. Our evenings are consistently buzzing with a flurry of emails, texts, and phone calls, all focused on ensuring that everything is set for the big reveal of our new campers on February 1st. Amidst this whirlwind of activities last night, I stumbled upon an old Facebook post of mine. Inspired by its message, I decided to republish it on our blog as a gentle reminder to myself to take a moment, breathe, and truly savor the journey.
Ever thought about the power of being 'unbothered'? It's about not letting long lines, delayed flights, or everyday distractions disrupt our peace. When you are feeling overwhelmed by not meeting others' expectations, focusing on what is good and true, and then letting it go. Understanding that it is more about grace and understanding, because we know how much we need it too
But here's where it gets even better: While we embrace this serene, unbothered attitude towards the small stuff, we also awaken a fiery passion for what truly matters. Equality, kindness, respect, and justice – these are the things that deserve our full attention and energy.
To put it in the words of Desmond Tutu: "Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world." This quote reminds us that our unbothered nature in daily life should not dampen our spirit to fight for the greater good. It's about striking that perfect balance – being calm and composed where it's beneficial, and fiercely passionate and engaged in the face of injustice and inequality.
So, let's commit to this journey together. Let's live unbothered by life's little dramas, but deeply engaged and bothered by the big issues that impact our world. Because when we do, we make a real difference.
