Learning not to take for granted

Two cyclones and a national state of emergency has given Vanuatu a huge shake-up. And perhaps one of the biggest lessons has been not to take for granted who we are and where we are; not to take for granted – power, water, communications, the support of people who may themselves be callenged yet give of themselves selflessly.

Personally I found myself fighting the energy, fussing over this and that. In the end, all I could do was accept and collaborate with the energy, work with what is, forget about what I might want or need. I realised how little control we have.

There is always so much to be thankful for. You know who you are.
