It is Mandela Day in South Africa on 18 July 2017, which would have been Nelson Mandela’s 99th birthday.
In honour of his legacy, we encourage each person to devote 67 minutes of their time to charitable causes, giving back, making a change in communities and supports local causes.
Having had the privilege of meeting the great man twice in my life, I completely support this initiative and I also know that his legacy is not limited to action on one day of the year. We should be doing good, in any way we can, wherever we are, every single day.
Whether it’s smiling at someone who looks like they might be having a tough day, letting someone go ahead of you in traffic, donating used things that you don’t need anymore… share love everywhere! The world needs more love!
I could write an endless list of things that I am grateful for and every day I hear about something else happening in our world, I add some more to my list.
Take a moment, or several, today to think about what you’re grateful for!
Neuroscience has shown that gratitude causes chemical changes in the brain – make it a habit!
