Robin Sharma says : The universe gives you what you need and not what you want.
Well I wanted a flushing toilet, I wanted a shower, I wanted a bathroom, I wanted all these things
however, I didn’t get it.
I have a outside loo and I shower at Louise and Jeff’s house at the top of the hill.
I have learnt to live without a refrigerator.
I have one tap in the house for washing dishes.
I have solar to power the lights and cell phone but sometimes Mother Nature gives
us rain for 3 days which means no solar. I then use the generator which takes approximately
an hour to charge my cell phone.
I have wonky cell phone reception, and I have complained to Vodacom for 20 days.
I am learning to live without watching movies. ( I go visit Katie our old neighbour for a movie and a bath)
I have learnt that when the sun shines, do all the laundry as you don’t know when it can rain for days.
I have learnt to use water sparingly. I have learnt to carry heavy cement squares to help
Willem install the septic tank.
I have learnt to discipline myself, so that I use the solar power, we have wisely.
Living sustainably is tough, you have to plan, think ahead and use your resources wisely.
I love it though, it is a challenge for me to change and adapt, to re assess which are
priorities and what is the most important aspect of something now!
I am sorry blog readers, I will have to blog less, it has taken me 46 minutes to write
this blog and I can hear the generator running.. . . .
Time to logg off!
All my love to you~ : as I journey on. . . .
