Sometimes I come across a story that makes me so happy that I can't wait to share it with you. Below is one of those stories that gave me the biggest smile. In a world that focuses more and more on the individual and embraces the 'i' …it’s so refreshing to see communites that still believe in we :)
'An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took each other’s hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said, ‘Ubuntu', how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?'
‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: ‘I am because we are'. Hope it made your Tuesday morning:) Missed you yesterday. xo
P.S: We are lucky!
P.P.S: And this sweet lesson on patience.
