Our journey, is merely three months old, – we are far from home and but we are on a daily adventure, the big question I ask myself is : “are we being led to our destiny?” Time will tell. And what is a destiny anyway?
One destiny we all concern ourselves with, sometimes forgetting other destinies : is money to cover our expenses, needs, necessities, goals and perhaps greeds. Yes money does help of coarse, but should it drive our destiny?
Was it destiny that our car was towed away or was it negligence?
The fine was EURO 114,00 – & they don’t lower it when you plead unlike in South Africa where you could possibly do a deal or just have a compassionate officer who lowers the amount due.
Another big destiny question is what is the destiny of my company Boomtown Films, a business birthed some twenty years ago , built on pillars of integrity and excellence.
One of the aims in Europe was to access funding for films, then bring them to South Africa, where the exchange rate is suitable thereby bringing great production value to projects. Furthermore Boomtown Films is a level two BBEEE company now, which opens us funding up to 40% in rebates from the DTI. This offer may make bringing projects easier in a highly competitive market. This is my responsibility to keep the ship in South Africa growing. A new destiny, a new opportunity.
Work sometimes robs us of LIFE which is so short, one has to make each day count, it cannot be replaced.
Today was one of those days to live to the full, – we cycled over 20k/Km along the beautiful coastline, and at 8pm hopped into the Douro and paddled for 1/2hr. What a way to close a day off. This shows you can mix work with play. One just needs to make time. We think money is the most important commodity, but is it? Is TIME not the most precious commodity one is gifted with?
its great to see people having fun, some fight for fun like what we saw in Porto this Weeknd with the soccer, Manchester City vs Chelsea and passionate supporters almost like an army embattled on and off the pitch? Manchester’s destiny was to loose!
Others choose to have practice to be the best they can….
I figure, I cannot control my destiny as much as I would like to. Instead I choose to control what I can each day.
