What inspires me

What inspires me

I live capital city of Namibia, here is where the real hustle is … What inspires me in here is my people around the Capital I am talking of all my hard working people who make sure they put bread on their table..
Believe me my heart breeds when a see a ten dollar mealie guy with a wheel barrow every morning..
The guy by the side of the road with a three dollar news paper..
A meme next to the construction site selling Matangara. believe me That’s what I call hard work … these people inspires me and light the fire inside me, they the one who reminds me the reason I am in the city…
They makes me swear to my kids ” I will do what your great great grandfather could’ve done, given the same opportunity.
I always whisper to my self , ” Anna you didn’t come all the way from the north to decorate the city..” You need to live your dreams, these are the people who keeps my dreams alive…
These are the people I support, I buy the tomato by the side of road , just to encourage them and grow them… These are the only people I believe they dream , they know what they are doing and they work toward their dreams…
It puzzles me where do they get energy, where do they get all the energy to push a wheel barrow every morning ? Probably their family. Out of curiosity, I asked a three dollars newspaper guy ” like you guys work do hard” He replied – we did not come here for a vacation and gave me a welcoming smile, I looked deep into his eyes and replied with a smile ” yeah it’s true “…

That’s all that motivates and inspires me … if they can do it , who am I not to.
